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 ago...it came in handy this year.

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.

Secret Door Technique
Cut 5x8 inch piece of cardstock, score at 2", 4", and 6". Fold in half. Cut from fold to 1st score line at 1 1/4", 2 1/2 " and 3 3/4 ". Open and lay flat. Weave 2 strips of DSP 1 15/16x5" into opposite directions into slits. Fold in each side toward center to close front. Decorate front, inside and inside secret door area. Fun technique.
