This was for the Wendy Vecchi Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and show.
Sorry for the sideways pic, I was in a hurry to get it posted but I think I just missed the deadline by a minute.
This was the first I had ever heard of Wendy and her awesome stamps. Think I may need to have some! Thanks for introducing me. I hope I captured a bit of her style and it was fun making it even if I don't qualify.
I made the flower and glimmer misted it. Added a pearl to the center of a large metal paper clip. Die cut the tag and keyhole from Tim Holtz dies. The keyhole was cut using corkboard then inked and heat embossed with utee and I added a brad. I stamped the butterfly, cut it out, heat embossed it then added a few pearls. I looped the key onto a strand of pearls hanging from the clip. And the ticket and family stamps are Prima, just cut them out and tucked them in.

Things with Wings challenge

I created this envelope and tag for the Things with Wings challenge on the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog. It will be going into a mini book I'm making for my dad.

I made the envelope in paint, printed it, cut it out and traced it onto the PP. You could also print right onto your PP. I got the idea for the envelope from the very talented Marion Smith.

I used chipboard, a rub on, die cuts- the branch was a sizzix die and the bird on the tag was a nestabilities die, grungeboard, lots of ink, 3 stamps, glimmer mist and embossed for the first time on both sides of the tag.

Sorry for the bad photos the colours are really washed out here.

My first post!

I've been busy the last 2 weeks trying to finish an 8x8 album for my sister/nephew. I started it back in April with the intention of completing it before he was born....he's now 3 weeks old. My goal now is to have it completed by the end of July. Here are a few of the finished layouts.

I just want to add that these layouts started a lifts so you might see something familiar.
