Robot Card

Here is a pic of a card I threw together for a kids birthday. I love this Sprockets & Rockets from Recollections. It has coordinating paper and stamps. I was in a hurry so the cardstock isn't exact, but it is Green Galore from SU. It is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On and colored with watercolor pencils. I used the Xyron stickermaker to adhere the background to the card base. I colored the planet, then used Zig two-way glue to add glitter. The planet is mounted on dimensionals. I added a couple of purple brads on the opposite corner, but they kind of fade into the background. Not my favorite card, but cute for a 20 minute quickie! Thanks for looking...April

Sugar and Spice?

Here is my daughter's Halloween LO. The LO design is inspired by pagemaps. Patterned paper is from Recollections, black cardstock is textured Bazzill, and dark red is from Michael's open stock. Ribbon is from Michael's. I ran the black border through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I had to work in sections and run each through three times. I also used the Drippy Goo punch on strips of red and inked the edges in Blazing Red Staz-On. I printed the journal and title on vellum cardstock and, because of the design, I had to print them separately and run the vellum through the printer twice. Font are Twilight and Chiller. The cards are from the New Moon trading card set. I also printed a couple of quotes from the Volturi...some from the movie and some from the book. Stamps are from Stamp Insanity's Otherworldly Loves and are stamped in Jet Black and Blazing Red Staz-On. The white border is punched using EK Success's notebook border punch and the little accent on top of it is from a box of Volturi body spray sold by Hot Topic. Thanks for looking! April

Olympic Birthday

Here is the LO for my daughter's Percy Jackson Birthday party. She took a group of friends to see the movie because she is a fan of the series. The girls had a great time hamming it up in front of the theater display.

The papers are bordering blue and brocade blue from SU. The black is Bazzill, and the white is standard cardstock. I used some Dew Drop chalk in Agean Blue. I dry embossed some of the pieces to kind of make it look like waves. I also sanded the chalked/embossed areas to soften them up a bit and roughed up the edges of the LO to make it look a bit older. The stickers are from Michael's and are Greek Alphabet. Thanks for looking! April

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Okay, so I am way late on this LO, but I wanted to do it anyway. Last week's Scrap It with a Song theme was Cindi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. So here it is...Papers are Bo Bunny and Bazzill. The cardstock is inked in Iris Blue chalk ink and then it was sanded for the faded look. I used a scalloped punch for the border. Font is Cricut's Doodletype at 2 inches and 1 inch. The girls are from the Greeting Farm's Wild Sprouts Collection I and are colored in watercolor pencils. I heard that Momento Tuxedo Black was great for the images, but found that it still smears, so I recommend sticking with Staz-On. Embellishments are buttons and the clip is from Hobby Lobby's Spare Parts with a bit of pink ribbon attached. There you have it! Thanks for looking...April

i wanna be Edward Cullen LO

Here is my son hamming it up for the camera Halloween 2009. He did a great job portraying Edward Cullen from Twilight. Isn't he just too cute?
The LO design is from Close to My Heart's Cherish book. Papers are Bazzill black and dark red. The apple B&T paper is from Hobby Lobby. The Team Edward B&T is hand stamped from the Barnes & Noble Twilight Stamp set in Dove Grey Staz-On. The red Bazzill is inked with Blazing Red Staz-On. I also used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch on the photo mats. I roughed up the edges on some of the pieces. The title is printed in be safe (Edward's signature) and twilight fonts on vellum. The Cullen crest accent is also from the Twilight stamp set from Barnes & Noble. The Edward embellishment is Flirty Edward from the Greeting Farm. They have it in Digi or as part of a rubber set. No worries, they have all the Cullens in some form! Yes, I made him so he sparkles! It's hard to see but I assure you, he does sparkle. I also added some ribbon, brads and spiral clips.
Thanks for looking! April
