Pop Up Celebration Card

Using a file from Creative Kuts  I created a Birthday card with balloons.  She has the linked card file, plus two other styles on her Facebook group page...


This was about the 3rd or 4th attempt at this card as I was having problems figuring out the pop-up section, but a light bulb went off and after a week of ignoring the card project, decided to attempt again.  And the above is what I come up.  Not sure I will make this card anytime soon ... LOL

Thank you for taking time to visit with me, and have a blessed weekend.

1st Birthday

Great granddaughter, Domenica enjoying her 1st birthday cupcake.  

I downloaded the photo and open up in Adobe Photoshop Elements to create this 8x8 layout of my great granddaughter's 1st birthday layout.  

Paper with birthday candles from Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbook along with the balloons image.  The title '1st Birthday' from Miss Kate Cuttables

Once created and saved to my flashdrive, I downloaded into picmonkey online editing software, and done some editing there.  Now to place order for 8x8 layout to Walgreens and once picked up, I will mat and place into her scrapbook.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and have a great day of crafing.

Another Christmas Card


Hanging Kitty

I printed the colored version of Hanging Kitty and was going to create a postcard with this design, but decided to create a card using paper from my stash.  When placing the design onto cardstock, I used one of the sentiments from the set, and mirrored it.  Once it was all printed, and adhered to the cardstock, I took my can of glitter paint and sprayed it to give it some shine.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and have a great week of crafting.

More of Barry's 12x12 Album

Here is a few more photos of what I've done with my great-grandson's 12x12 album....


This is the back side of the 12x12 album using paper from "Heaven Sent" that I purchased from Country Craft Creations .  Using my corner punch I punched a scalloped edge (should've just done it on the outer edges close to the binding edge of book) and ended placing a couple beads in the center of each of the metal edging.


This is the inside of the back cover - I created a couple pockets, placing a train on the top of the first pocket (not the train design I wanted but couldn't locate the one I had in mind!!).  The 2nd pocked I punched a garden-gate edge across the top.  Layered with baby paper I found at Hobby Lobby.  The teddy bear was the one on the binding of the album, which was too big and edges was getting frayed so replaced with a new bear; and rather than throw this one away, I adhered to layout.  And print and cut the bear and placed just behind the coal car of the train.


As you will note, the bear is smaller and fits the binding of the book just great.  Added a heart because I tore the matting a little when removing the foam tape runner.

Waiting on my paper order from Country Craft Creations so I can continue with the pages.  

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me and blessings to all.
