Layout based on a Shari Carroll card - retired Memory Box and 7gypsies papers; Memory Box Tilda Swirl die. Vintage mother-of-pearl button with single hole from etsy. Finished card size is 4.75 x 6 inches including overhang of elements. Happy Wednesday!
October Afternoon Cakewalk gift ensemble - youngest daughter's friend Kayla (hence the initial k) is turning eleven - notebook and earrings pic...
Memory Box Heart Pocket die created the enclosure for a pair of earrings I quickly assembled using a few Swarovski and sterling silver products. The birthday girl loves the color orange...so I obliged.
Close up of the notebook front. Finished size of notebook is 5 x 8 inches. Cute mini pom pom trim in white was machine-stitched into place.
Was a good day at the gym this morning - looking forward to warmer weather though - it was eight (Farenheit) this morning. Miss being able to run the hills in my area.
Those that know me know I do not watch television - at all. This evening I am going to view my first episode of Downton Abbey, thanks to my mother loaning season one and two on dvd to us - everyone says it is a wonderful series. Happy Friday!
Basic Grey Serenade buttons and paper; doily; spritzed a 4.5 inch diameter doily with a pale gray-blue Sprinkler (Icebox) and layered underneath the white, English-style one. Walnut ink stained formerly ivory #12 tag anchors it all. Finished card size - I believe this was 5 x 7 or 5 x 6 inches - it sold last week at the local artisan fair I do a couple of times each month; one-of-a-kind, ornate pieces like this go quickly.
Delicate linen thread; round 1.5 inch diameter metal-rimmed tag; Zva crystal (symmetrical flourish), Papertrey ticket die (cut using Serenade paper) and stamps.
...and a handmade, bubble-lined envelope of course!
I didn't hit the gym this morning - pushed it hard yesterday. I'm 'bout half-way to getting my 10 million pound t-shirt (Technogym key database conveniently keeps track of total weight lifted)...cuz you know...it's all about the t-shirt! Hey it's almost Friday - yippieee!!
Memory Box dies (Petite Umbrella, A Little Rain) used on a Fabriano square card base. Finished size: 4.5 inches square. Punched hearts (Marvy) are from Memory Box cardstocks: cotton candy, bubblegum and currant.
Umbrella was die cut from Bazzill Candy Bar (Card Shoppe) and October Afternoon's Farm Girl (Milk Pail) - lining the umbrella with a darker cardstock makes those seams in the umbrella visually pop. Background patterned cardstock is October Afternoon Thrift Shop (Collector's Item). Best wishes for a great weekend!
New Memory Box steel die called 'Fresh Foliage' was used for today's project - the ever-needed sympathy card. Brown Divine Twine, vintage mother-of-pearl button (etsy). The edge punch is one of Martha's newer around-the-page ones called Lace Flowers.
