In Memory of Mom2-016

OK, this is where the scrapbooking gets tough.  

The stars of these pages are my Mom and my brother, Dustin. While these moments captured are all happy – knowing my Mom is gone brings such sadness.  I am grateful to have these photographs and even more so, her very own words preserved forever (in the journaling above).

In Memory of Mom2-017

Using My Digital Studio is not only fun – it has provided some great "therapy" if you will.  For months after my Mom passed away (many months), I was not able to even look at a photo of my Mom. 

Being able to scrapbook photos of her and more importantly, SHARE the finished product brings some closure.  What does scrapbooking do for you?  Provide stress relief … give you some "me time" …  I'd love to hear about your creative process.  Please leave me a comment below!

CASE a Card

IMG_2460

Hi there!  Long time, no blogging … 

I've been in a bit of stamping slump lately, so I decided to CASE (copy and share for everyone) a card I found online (created by Carrie Gaskin, the Artistic Avenger – love her work!).  When I get into a slump, I find that CASE'ing gets me back into the swing of things.

A good friend of mine recently went through a major surgery and I wanted to send some heartfelt wishes in the form of a handmade card.  This card fit the bill perfectly.

Lots of Love Letterpress Plates - by Stampin' Up! I am loving the way this turned out, gorgeous colors, fun layout and use of many different punches.  It may be hard to see, but I even used the Lots of Love letterpress plate on my Sahara Sand background.

So, what do you think?  Stamping this card inspired me to make a few more… I hope to share those with you very soon.

Apple Love for a Teacher

School Valentine
I created these cute little heart apples with the help of my heart-to-heart punch and the Tart & Tangy stamp set.

  

Heart to Heart Punch:  Item #119881, $16.95
Tart & Tangy Stamp Set:  Item #111514, $12.95

Heart-To-Heart Punch - by Stampin' Up!   Tart & Tangy Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

 

This card and gift below are for Valentine's Day for my son's first grade teacher.

To keep the "teacher feel" of this card, I used colors that remind me of school.  I wanted to use the apple from Tart & Tangy, but had a lightbulb moment when I thought of turning them into hearts.  

I'm really happy with the way this gift set turned out.  Also included is small pail (not pictured) covered with tiny red apples and filled with valentine's candy.
