August 2010 PTI Blog Hop

Welcome to the August PTI blog hop where this months challenge is to alter, change or dress up a brown lunch bag.  So here's what I came up with:

I made a little back pack.  This was so fun and easy to make.  Unfortunate I did not use any PTI cardstock but I did use the flower die.

I made a little pocket in the front that you could but a little note from home or as I did a large paper clip.  I also added a tab that's tucked in to keep the bag closed.

The back of the bag is covered with cardstock with a flap to the front and I attached two straps to resemble a back pack.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else has created.  Happy Hopping!

Golfers Birthday

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday.  I have a little post for you today which involves a card I made for my brother's birthday.

My brother is an avid golfer and I found this golf club embelly in my stash and thought it appropriate to use for his card.  I also paired it up with Vintage Labels stamped in ripe avocado and Labels One nesties.


What else goes with the golf look but argyle and what better stamp to use but the Little Argyle set.  I used spring moss cardstock and stamped the argyle pattern with spring moss and ripe avocado ink.  I also used the an embossing folder from Quickuts.  The card base is rustic cream cardstock. 

Well thanks for joining me today, enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Yo-Yo embellies

Hi folks, it's almost Friday Yippee!!!  I thought I would pop in with a few cards to share with you.  I found a couple squares of fabrics the other day and I thought I would give a try at making some yo-yo's.

It's hard to see in this photo but the fabric has yellow in it and a grey script. 

This card does look pretty in person. For some reason this card did not photo very well.


Stamps:  Birthday Basics
Ink:  Versamark
Paper:  Lemon Tart, Smokey Shadow
Other:  White embossing powder, medium scallopped die, Scor Pal, Cuttlebug embossing folder, fabric, button from stash, yellow floss.
Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I pulled all the colors of the fabric together to create my next card.


Stamps:  Birthday Basics, Fancy Flourish, Vintage Label, Polka Dot Basics I
Ink:  Ripe Avocado, Orange Zest
Paper: Orange Zest, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado
Other:  Mat Stack I die, large scallopped die, Orange Zest twill ribbon, button, fabric

I loved how these yo-yo's turned out and they were very easy to make.  I'll be on the hunt for some more fabric that will coordinate with my PTI cardstock.

Birthday and Gift card

Hi everyone!  I have a little birthday card and gift card to share with you today that I made for my sister's birthday.  

  I cased the card from Nichole when she was previewing the Delightful Dahlia stamp set back in March.  I changed just a few things but the layout is the same. The gift card holder is from the My Timeless Templates Cash or Charge Collection.

For the card I used of course the Delightful Dahlia set with coordinating dies.  The flower is stamped in berry sorbet and the leaves are die cut from Pretty Pastels paper pack.  The sentiment is from Damask Designs stamped in berry sorbet onto vintage cream cardstock die cut from the Fillable Frames #4 along with the border from #4 stamped in spring moss.  The background is berry sorbet where I used the picnic plaid impression plate.

Next is the gift card holder.  I used berry sorbet cardstock impressed with picnic plaid.  The green paper is from a Making Memories paper pack.  The base of the holder in vintage cream cardstock and I tied it together with some silk ribbon.

For the slider, I attached an envelope that I made to house the gift card and attached a berry sorbet button.

The gift card fits perfectly inside the envelope.  First I ran the envelope through my Cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder before I attached it to the slider.  I hope my sister likes this as much as I enjoyed making it for her. 

Thanks for stopping by!
