Birthday Catchups....

For months I have been promising to catch up on my grandkids' birthday layouts--they each have a Birthday Scrapbook at Grandma's they love to look at every time they visit. At last, I'm almost totally caught up.  I'm missing one layout each for both of them.   I especially like the way Rowan's 7th birthday spread turned out--the zombie one.  So here they are.  Warning:  Graphic heavy (and if you like to see detail, click on image).  I have more cards to post soon.  Hugs and a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!   xoxo Kathy

A few new cards and an old one

I realized that I never posted one of my all time favorite cards here.  I made it in 2013 for my granddaughter Lily's 7th birthday.  Her birthday party was at a local aquarium, and her current passion was the ocean and all its creatures.   I used the accordian style card with tropical fish images found on the internet and "floated" them on strips of clear acrylic.  It turned out pretty fun.  The mermaid image is one of Mo Manning's.

The second card is a trifold shutter card made for a family member who is courageously battling cancer.  The third is just a little "be happy" card (I made six of them) to have on hand.   Click on the images; they look SO much better that way.

Thanks for visiting!   .....  hugs, Kath

Quickie  Halloween Post...simple but fun cards. I saw the pearly spider on a fancy nail instagram post and thought, hey--that would work on a card. I embossed some black cs with my cobweb embossing folder and dug out my bling collection.  I used my go to white Sharpie for the spider legs.  The other googlie eye card I've seen a dozen places so no idea who to give credit to.   Happy Halloween!

I have two beautiful nieces, both are newly graduated--one from high school and one from college. One is Keli and one is Kelly.  How's that for coincidences?  I made them both pop up box cards, in different color schemes.  ( Images are clickable for close up viewing, but only if you want an eyeful!)

This one is for Keli, with her sunny disposition.  This paper is Graphic45 Bohemian Bazaar.

This one is for Kelly, in one of her favorite color combos.  Kelly also just announced her engagement to be married so double congrats!

Catching up....

Lily, my granddaughter, is now 8 but I'm running behind on birthday album layouts.  Here's half of her 5th birthday layout (still working on the 2nd page).  It's such a good feeling to be cutting and gluing and picking out pretty papers (Basic Grey Phoebe on this one).  The top corner is a nod to Debby4000 for her creative use of Memory Box  fresh foliage die cuts on one of her recent brilliant scrapbook pages.  She's challenged herself to one page per week and is actually keeping up.  Go Debby!
