For the seed packet card, I used a piece of 8 1/2 x11 old olive cardstock and scored at 3 1/2", 3 3/4", 7 1/4", 7 1/2" and then 1" from bottom. Trim off the bottom 1" on the left panel and middle panel. Fold the right lower 1" piece up and secure with ribbon. I used snail to adhere seed packets to olive cardstock.

Oh My Star...I did this page with little boys in mind. I thought I would get pics of my nephew Bristan on it but haven't yet. I also have a few class members that have sons and thought this would be a cute layout for them. I used the twine across the top and thought we would hang flags across spelling their name or event. I used the gel pen to draw lines 1 inch apart around the edges. The colors scheme is crumb cake, marina mist and wild wasabi.

2 page layout using punch art- I used the 1 1/2 cirle & 1 1/4 circle to make the body; 1/2 circle for the white of the eyes and hole punch for balck centers; Xlarge oval for the lily pad; large oval & small oval for the legs and head; end of the word window punch for one mouth and I drew the other with a stampin marker, boho blossom punch to create the cute lil' frog feet and to add the purple flower. Some of those attending my class drew the cutest mouth and made one frog feminine by adding partial boho flower as a bow on the side of her head.

This is a peek at the gifts I made for each of Randy's team members. The Braves played well this year. We had a few first time players and several returning players. I took pictures along the way to put in a book for each girl. Thanks to April Roycroft for teaching me this 6x6 mini album project several years came in handy this year.

Cute technique for 5 pedal punch flowers. Pinch each pedal in half, this will give it dimension, and place a rhinestone in the center for some bling.

The new Triple punch is so cool. I used it to make the flowers for this card. I used the Two-Step Bird Punch for the leaves, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die and the Decorative Label punch. The ribbon is retired Crushed Curry. Hope you enjoy.

For this card I used the Broadsheet Alphabet and put all 4 letters on a clear block at once. I used the Love Letters SU DSP and coordinated with red/black. Happy Anniversary!

Saw this on and made it today while Randy was gone to buy chicken for dinner. Yes, I made it while he was gone to the grocery store! A tape measure, ribbon clamps and 2 split rings. Simple.

My mom saw this idea somewhere and just HAD to make them. They turned out soooo cute. We used SU DSP for the shirt and folded down for solid shirt collar. She used the large oval punch to make bottoms of overalls and we cut strips for the shoulder straps. The crop-a-dile came in handy for the jumbo eyelets. To finish off the little pocket, I embossed silver on silver using the Totally Tools stamp set.
