Here are some spring colored cards to get you in the mood for April. I just love my new Cuttlebug. It brings my cards to a whole new dimension and I like it. Anyway, I used the same design for these but just used slightly different embellies. I'm not sure what these cards will be used for (birthday, get well, ect) but I'm open to suggestions you may have. For all those people that give a suggestion of what kind of cards these should be, I will pick one for a RAK. I can't wait to hear what you say. Thanks tons:)

I made some graduation cards last night for a friend of mine. She has three students graduating from a school where their colors are blue and white. As you can see I used my new Cuttlebug for three of them:) The Class of '10 and grad cap are stamps from Close to my Heart and the congrats and stars are from Studio G ($1.00 stamps from Michaels. The black paper is from The Paper Co. The rest of the paper were scraps I had. Ink by SU and Colorbox. TFL

The black borders are from Creative Memories and that's all I got for ya. The pictures have a funky color to them. I think it was their camera.
I must tell you that I gave Kaylin her book last night and after seeing her light up as she looked thru it, it was well worth all the work, time and supplies. She really liked it and I was so proud and happy to hear that. I still have a few more LO's that I haven't posted yet so stayed tuned for those. Then I will be starting on her high school book as soon as she gets me the pictures.

I did this sketch from Sketches for all
I tweeked it a little by turning it and then using two photos instead of one but hey that's what you're suppose to do with sketches, make them your own. I made this LO at the crop I went to this weekend. It is so fun for me to use other people's things. For instance, the flower stamps, ink border punch are from my friend Paula. The stamps and ink are by CTMH and the bprder punch by Fiskars. The little Michigan die cut is from my friend Tracie's Cricut cartridge 50 States. The other supplies are: PP by DCWV; ribbon by SU; clear embossing powder by Stampendous; clear ink by Versa Mark; cream paper by CM; all stamps by CTMH; other Cricut cartirdge is Doodletype. TFL

Here is another one for Kaylin's book. This one was hard because she didn't have a school picture of fourth grade and this is the only picture from fifth grade. Instead of making a whole page on just a tiny wallet photo I decided to add the two years together. I feel like the ribbon divides the two years and the title with arrows is bold enough to know the difference. Also by putting the polka dot circle behind the fifth grade picture the attention is drawn to it which seperates the two years that much more. Stars by Quickutz; CS by Sunborn and The Paper Co; brad unknown; PP by MME; arrow stickers by Heidi Swapp; polka dot accents by MM; stamps, ink and border punch by SU; ribbon by Offray. TFL

Go green with your scrapping. Use an old item that may not be designated for scrapping, use the packaging of something, try doing a project with out using adhesive or use a piece of trash for a mask or stencil with paint or glimmer mist. Like I did in my example. I used the backing of a sticker as a mask and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to make the side borders. The original sticker was used in "Finally a Winner" LO. I also used tons of scraps of paper that I should have thrown away because they were too small but I made them work. I can't wait to see what you come up with. SOS Link Here.

In this challenge you need to use the word green or the color green in your title. I love this little saying by Kermit the frog with my cousins boy's cake. TFL. Check in at Sisterhood of Scrap for information regarding the challenges. Hope to see you there. TFL
The March Green challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap is posted and waiting for you. Challenge #1 is to use 3 or more of the same shape in the color green in a project (Card, LO or altered art). My example above has more than three leaves. This Lo was published in Scrapbook News and Reviews. TFL
