"Altered Alice Tags"

Not a lot of time to make things...late for so many important dates! This is a  set of trading tags. The call was for 'Altered Alice'. The center is the back view, the tiny book has pages that actually open. The cut outs are from a random deck of cards and G 45 papers.
Some glue book swap pages made with napkins over an old text background with reprinted vintage photos and other stash bits.

Thanks Pinterest for the smiles

So, I was tidying up the 'stacks'.....
I know you know what I mean, and what to my wondering eyes did appear? An entire 6 x 6 pack of Bo Bunny and two full size sheets. I am sure I was going to make cards. But I just had to do a 12 x 12 layout.
I did some fussy cutting and you can see how the cut up small paper pack meets exactly in the middle of the page to extend the background.
Thanks Pinterest for these funnies.

Where's the Goat?

This was a fun layout to do. The lettering and logo is all hand drawn and cut from plain card stock. Just stacked for effect. This process took me way back to when all I had in my stash was basically glue, cardstock, basic pens and a few sheets of pattern paper.  I made it specifically for the call out for the fall issue of Creative Scrapbook magazine. 
While on vacation, I like to take photos of whatever comes into my vision that is interesting to me. Well the goat above really caught my eye early one morning. He was tethered just behind the kitchens....
In my mind I saw the goat from Jurassic Park ....
After that I would look for him. He just seemed so out of place on the resort. I was a little worried he might be on the menu.....
Finally I saw the real reason he was hanging around. LOL
Thank you Creative Scrapbooker for publishing this LO in the fall issue!!

Not sure that is the same goat? Hmmm....
Thanks Pinterest for this bit of fun.

A Caring Card

Working on my card making non skills
Grabbed this piece of tulle from table scrap to help embellish the inset
 Played around with making a matching envelope too.
 This is the inside bit, it is a secret so SHHHHH the recipient can't know who sent this. Pretty sure she won't be reading my blog
so this won't jeopardize the outcome.
Speaking of Caring...... 
Thanks for the laughs 'pinners' and 'pinterest'

I Love You I Love You

Prima 'Rose Quartz' Paper pack
I Fussy cut the feathers from this sheet,
alternated with craft feathers and done!
Then searched the stash for some block letters I could give a pink tinge to.
Those are my sweet darlings, where did those babies go?. I Love this photo, I am sure the it was Irelyn's idea to  let baby Gabe use the crayon for lipstick!
Fun photo idea from Pinterest

High Summer and

I haven't been in my 'Happy Place' for any length of time. I hope you all have a terrific long weekend!
So I am  squeezing in this little tip. The two butterfly's are identical pieces. To add a touch of interest, I used stickles as well as a sprinkle of glitter over the top while the stickles were still wet. I find that helps to fill in some of the spaces when you are covering a large area with stickles.
An unfinished project
Started with this die cut
 Folded it all along the lightly marked lines
The reason it is unfinished is because, I can not decide if it should be a fan or an umbrella....
What would you do with it?
Thanks Pinterest and instagram for this idea
