Our Crazy Language October 3, 2009

Filed under: SCRAPBOOK PAGES — classyscraps @ 12:07 am

I thought it would be fun to put together a page documenting the unique language of our family. The products I used were all Jenni Bowlin. I created the title with my Cricut and the Makin’ the Grade  and Opposites Attract cartridges. I painted a chipboard “A” as an accent and created a dictionary page with our unique words (which didn’t photograph all that well).Our Crazy Language

Summer Sandals

I created this mini book using the Life’s A Beach Cricut & Makin’ the Grade cartridges and a Hibiscus stamp using versamark ink. I embellisehd with rhinestones and flowers and bound the book using my Bind-It-All machine.

I made this altered clipboard by first painting it red and then applying patterned paper and ribbon using Mod Podge. The flower is from the Stampin Up set Pick a Petal and the center is from Priceless set. Red Dot Gracie Clipboard

Farmer NolanI just fell in love with this card I made for my son’s 4-year-old friend. I used the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge and cut the boy and all his accessories at 3 1/2″ and the tractor at 3″.  I used a brayer and my Stampin Up Classic ink to create the sky and grass. I finished it off with some penwork, chalking, and eyelets and brads.

Toyland ParadsI made this tree using green scraps of paper that I pieced together. Thanks for looking!


Thank You Frog May 17, 2009

Filed under: Handmade Cards — classyscraps @ 4:59 pm

I made these Thank You cards for my son’s 4-year-old birthday. I actually used a die cut machine at school to cut out the frog. I made the lily pad by cutting a 3 1/2″ circle and drawing multiple lines on it. I added wiggle eyes and a curled tongue. The cattails are made from the small oval punch from Stampin Up and the “Thanks” stamp is also Stampin Up.Thank You Frog


Love at First Bite May 16, 2009

Love at First BiteI really liked how the color combination worked on this page. I used a Bazzill cardstock called Sandpaper for my base and used a pale pink mat under my focal picture and title. I cut the heart out with my Cricut and mounted it with Pop Dots. I used a white pen to make dots along the border of the heart and used a glue dot to adhere a knotted piece of felt ric rac. I cut the title out of white using the Making the Grade font from Cricut and put it on a turquoise paper with one scalloped edge (Stampin Up scallop border punch). I also did a sort of subtitle, “food” and used the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge for that. The three small pictures along the bottom were cropped using a 2″ punch.
