Moving Forward Scrapbook Page!

100_7642

How stinkin’ cute is this???  I used the Moving Forward stamp set.  This is the Ronald McDonald House stamp set that Stampin’ Up! made especially for this charity.  When you purchase this year’s exclusive RMHC stamp set - Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to help families who have serious illnesses.  Stampin’ Up! has contributed over $1,000,000 to RMHC!

100_7635

I filled these pages in with the grandkids - aren’t they stinkin’ cute too???  These are Stephanie’s and Anna’s kids - Molli, AJ, Andi and Porter. 

Another interesting thing about this page is the page protector!  Stampin’ Up! has NEW 12” x 12” Divided Page Protectors to allow you to make effortless and unique scrapbooks pages.  These dividers let you mix photos, journaling, papercrafting and memorabilia.  You get 10 page protectors in a pack for $5.95.  These are so fun!  I can’t wait to play with more of them.

100_7637

The Labels Collection Framelits (125598) has the perfect size framelit for these images and the layers behind them.  These would all make cute cards too!!!

It Feels Like Fall!

100_7435

The weather here is unseasonably cool...especially for August!  So I wanted to share another fall card with you.  

 

100_7433

Stamps:  Wonderfall; Itty Bitty Banners  Ink:  Old Olive; Early Espresso  Cardstock:  Cajun Craze; Old Olive; Early Espresso; Crumb Cake  Accessories:  Big Shot; Polka Dot, Chevron & Square Lattice Folders; Designer Ribbon Slides; Bitty Banners Framelits; Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon; Postage Punch; Autumn Accents Bigz Die; Sponge

These ribbon slides are so fun - they really added the little "umph" I needed for this card!

100_7436

I love my little acorns!!!  I die cut them in Early Espresso & Cajun Craze and then ran each through the Polka Dot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folders.  It added the texture that I wanted to make the tops look real!

YOUR DONATIONS NEEDED!!!

StephBoys-682x1024

My step-daughter Stephanie just sent this email to me:

Would you be so kind as to ask your lovely stamping ladies if they are willing to donate cards for the golf outing again this year!  This is always such a huge hit!  Last year you gave enough for 4 photo boxes and the women were "tossin' elbows" for a chance at them!!! Anything you can come up with would be much appreciated!!!
Thanks
steph
As most of you know...Stephanie lost her husband three years ago to a terrible accident. She's now left to raise their two boys, AJ & Porter.  The money rasied at the Nick Klotz Memorial Golf Outing was a huge blessing to her family and now goes to help those most in need - whatever that need may be.  Most recently, money was donated to a 28 year old woman that was diagnosed with terminal Ovarian Cancer...the money will go to help pay for overwhelming medical bills.  The golf outing is such a worthy cause and so very close to our hearts.  Nick was a such a great guy!
If you'd like to donate your handmade cards with envelopes - your generosity is GREATLY appreciated!  Please send them to me or drop them off on my porch at 738 Depere St, Menasha WI 54952

I will need the cards by no later than September 8th to ensure that I can get them to Stephanie before the event.

Here's a link to the website if you're a golfer or you'd just like to come enjoy a wonderful fall day:

Any theme, stamped inside or blank...we appreciate them all.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Isn't this cool???  It's so easy - this technique was shared at our last team meeting by Doris Fryman - thanks Doris!!!

100_7455

All you need to do is punch out a 1-3/4" scallop circle and place it over the area you want to add the piercing to.  Pierce around the scallop scrap as shown below - I used the new Stampin' Pierce Mat shown at the bottom - I love the large size.

100_7495

100_7499

 

Then add your rhinestones in between your holes - as Bonnie Thurber said at convention - EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZIE!!!

Beautiful Fun Fold

102_6413

Here's a favorite of mine from my Technique Tuesday class.  I just love FUN FOLD cards and this one is sooo easy!  Thanks to my friend Cindy for sending me a card using this fold so I could recreate my own!!!

I started with Floral District Designer Series Paper cut at 12" x 5-1/2 and scored it at 2", 4", 8" & 10" - fold as shown in the second photo below.

102_6409

 

102_6412

Then cut at a diagonal as shown below.  Measure up 2-3/4" from the bottom and cut to the 2nd score line on both sides.  That's it!!!!

100_7453

Here are all the cards that we made for the Technique Tuesday class.  

102_6445

If you'd like to order the PDF file for this class - it's only $3.95 - it includes all ingredients, dimensions and step by step directions!  If you are a demonstrator and you'd like a WORD file so you can share it with your customers - let me know via email - this will save you the time of retyping and photographing with your personal info.
