I'm All Shook Up!






I got a new die last weekend (Sizzix Ornate Flip-Its).  I HAD to play...I used some two sided papers I got a while back, an image from Rick St Dennis' Boys Digi Sheet, a sentiment from Create With TLC and another sentiment I created.
Feel free to save and use if you'd like.
The "Rock Star" on the upper left hand corner is a button.  I added some twine and gems - more proof that you can use gems for a guy's card!  This would be great for a teen boy or an adult man.  Don't you think?  :)

Best Friends and Tea

This week over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is sort of a toughy since it is hard to find paper bags anymore...the theme is "Upcycle a paper bag".  I just happened to have some in our pantry for school lunches.  I was inspired by a project my son made for me several years ago.  What he made was a scrapbook album, this is a card with a slide out.

We are being sponsored by the adorable Milk n Coffee.  The image I used is called Charlotte and Midnight Cammomile Tea.  I created the sentiment that I will share with you.  The DP is from Create With TLC.


For the front I used some lace, gems, scrabble tiles and a ribbon.


The inside was much less time consuming, I just added the DP and sentiment, here is the sentiment for you:

For the insert I made a little envelope and added a package of tea and a tea bag.  I also added some lace and gems.  I cut out the label from the opened tea bag to place onto the envelope.


Isn't this super fun?  It is also super easy...want to know how to make this??

Step 1:  Take a regular sized lunch bag (this was about 6 inch x 14 inch)
Step 2:  Score the bag at the six inch mark and fold it with the bag's bottom flap inside.  Then cut off the other two inches.
Step 3:  Cut FOUR square pieces of cardstock at 5 7/8 inches square.
Step 4:  Paste one of the four squares on the front, paste two of the others on the inside (one on the right side one on the left side).  The fourth is for the slide out piece.
Step 5:  Decorate like you would a normal card!

Fun huh?  :)

Sassy in the dictionary

This new sentiment set (called In The Dictionary) is available over at Create With TLC.  The sassy lady is available in two different sets Go Vogue and Roman Fashion.  I added some fun digi paper from my scrap drawer, not sure if it is from Stampin Up or Close To My Heart.  I added some pearls, gems, lace, ribbon, roses and a die cut doily.
