Ginger Blossom Sympathy

My sister (Donna) made this beautiful sympathy card for a friend. She used Embrace Life Stamp Set, Ginger Blossom dsp, Sherbet Ribbon Originals and the Pretties Kit. Sorry for the blurry photo. In Joy!

Monogram Stationery

I had a great time making this stationery for a friend. I used Le Jardin dsp with coordinating cardstock. The watermarks were created with Baroque Motifs and French Flair. I love the new Lovely Letters alphabet set!!! I included a covered cigar style box, beaded pen and even monogrammed seals for the matching envelopes. I think this is just the beginning of my monogramming. In Joy!

Outlaw Notebook

I made this notebook for a friend from church who is in the hospital. He likes for visitors to write things to him and is currently using pieces of paper and having a hard time keeping up with them. Maybe this notebook will help him to keep them all in one place. I used the negative technique with the cuttlebug background and then just cut apart the words in order to use the ones I thought fit him best. The background was done with creamy caramel paper, vanilla craft ink and close to cocoa classic ink for the faux wood look. The large chipboard letter was covered with outlaw paper and sponged with really rust craft ink. The smaller chipboard letters where sponged with sage shadow craft ink and edged with really rust craft ink.
In Joy!
