Grunge Rock Birthday

This is a card for a child's birthday.  I used red cardstock as a base, stamping Extreme Elements stamps in Blazing Red Staz-On and Platnum Planet Brilliance Pigment inks.  Next is layers of scrap black and white cardstocks.  I stamped the sentiment from Grunge Rock in Jet Black Staz-On, then the guitar on scrap paper before cutting it out.  The guitar is mounted on dimensionals with a bit of scrap red baker's twine bow for decoration.  Last, is a gold wax seal to finish the look.  Thanks for looking!  April

Read 2013 SMASH

Here is my new list of read books this year.  I decided to use mini post-it notes to write the names on.  I also have a place to slide the library slips I get from checking out books.  (Most are ebooks now!)  I added a pocket I found in my stash, some alpha stickers for the title, a chipboard number, a SMASH tab and extra post-its in the corner.  I am looking for some cool book covers to add during the year as well.  Thanks for looking!  April

Orange SMASH book cover

This is my orange SMASH folio cover.  I used some black paper with Whisper White craft and white embossing powder to stamp the sentiment I found on clearance at Michael's.  I used a rag to smear some ink on the black paper to look more like a chalkboard.  I used the ticket corner punch from SU to clip the corners.  The bingo card is from Rebecca at Uprintables.  The flag stickers are from Recollections.  I used a SMASH tab for the "I want" and SMASH tape.  The polariod photo frame is from Recollections.  Thanks for looking!  April
