Gnome Home Hello - May Mystery Image


This month's Mystery Image is Gnome Home.  I know Gnome's usually have gray beards but my feeling is they all aren't old lol.  I used Oxide Distress Inks for the background.  I used alcohol inks to color everything else.  I also used Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower and green embellishments.

April Mystery Image - Splitcoast Stapers

This card was created using paper from the Club Scrap Cherry Blossom Deluxe Kit.

I created this card for a monthly Mystery Image Swap on Splitcoast Stampers.  The stamped  image is sent to each member and we create a card.  This card is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

I belong to the Mystery Image Swap group on Splitcoast Stampers.  Each month someone sends each member of the group a stamped image to create a card and then we post online then send to our assigned person,

This card I created for the February swap, I'm not really a cat fan but this image is so cute.  I like how the card I created turned out.  The fold for this card is called a Dutch Fold.




This card is the January card I created very tropical, great for those of us living in the cold.


Week 1 of Club Scraps Winter PSL

The challenge for this week is to use 3 of a kind on a card or Scrapbook page.  Below are some cards I created for this challenge using Succulent paper from this month's kit along with a double page scrapbook layout using Hops and Barley paper with pictures of my youngest son when we were in San Diego this past Thanksgiving week during beer tasting which was perfect for this paper.

Succulent Twist Easel Card


I created this Twist Easel card from paper in the Club Scrap Succulent Deluxe Kit for this February. The butterfly was cut from a Stampin Up die.   I have made lots of easel cards but this is the first twist easel card.  The card measurements is 5.5 x 5.5.  It's hard to see the saying on the base but it says Enjoy Your Day.

Shades of Winter - Club Scrap

Shades of Winter

I couldn't decide what I really wanted to use this paper for.  Sometimes when I get my monthly kits I just don't want to cut the paper because it's so beautiful, this is one of those kits.   I thought I would do something I love to do and that's, create a mini albums in addition to scrapbooking and making a Julie Nutting Doll Tag.

Here is the 6 x 6 mini album I created using this beautiful paper along with random cream colored paper purchased from Club Scrap.  The plum colored paper on the tag is from a previous Christmas card kit, I love the combination. The Inside cover has a pocket for misc. items.  The pages were left blank so the recipient can use it as they desire.  I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch machine to bind the book.  I'm really trying to make use of  my craft investments that I don't use nearly enough.

The Doll Tag is 8" x 4", I used Shades of Winter paper for the tag, then used Nuvo dimensional drops to enhance the berries in the paper design.  The saying is from Shades of Winter Die Cuts, the snow flakes are from my stash.

I hope you like my little book and Tag,  thanks for stopping by.
