Thank You Card

I recently had surgery and wanted to create some thank you cards to give to all those who were so thoughtful of me and my family while I was down.  I also got a new embossing folder and these thank you stamps and wanted to use them. This is what I came up with.  My stamp platform made making a bunch of these so easy!    I love it!

Christmas Jar Tags

I LOVE how this turned out.  I still need to add some twine on my tag, but LOVE it.  On the back I did a print and cut that says "From our house to yours" and then our names.  I think these will look so cute on our neighbor gifts.  So much fun!  This was modified from a file from My Scrap Chick.  Instead of a card, I just made a tag.  So fun!   I don't remember what stamp set my Merry and Bright came from, but it was a perfect fit on my tag!

Thinking of You Cards

What do you do after you have had surgery and you can't lift or do anything for a few weeks?  Well, you make cards of course.  I recently got some new embossing folders and was watching some youtube videos on different ways to use them and one of them was to ink them.  Since I had never tried that, I gave it a try.  I decided that using a brayer works better when your pattern is smaller and close together.  When the pattern is farther apart, the brayer made marks in the white space.  Still pretty, but a lesson none the less!

Mr. and Mrs. Layout

We recently had the opportunity to go to our nieces wedding.  What a fun time for family to gather and spend time together!  It was beautiful!  I have no idea where the cut file of the couple was shared, as it was hanging out unused on my computer, but if it's yours, please let me know and I will give you proper credit!  Love it.  The titles I just created in MTC so I can't refer you to those either!  LOL. I love this paper pack and finally found a good use for all that beautiful foil paper!  For some reason the hearts on the bottom right look red, but are really a pink color.  Beautiful paper for a beautiful day!

July 4th Layout

This cute little frog is a Marjorie Ann Designs file.  Isn't she cute.  I happened to have one lone frog left over from a layout I did on the fourth of July from pictures from a couple years ago.  I had intended to put her on a card or something, but never did.  While I was putting together this quick layout, I snagged her and put her on. I think she looks like she was meant to be here.  There are so many cute designers out there and she is one of my favorites.  Always such cute files.  The flower was jut a basic shape I found somewhere but it looks cute on the top!
