Same Martha Stewart Flower sticker for 3 Sympathy cards

I made a handful of cards with the goal to use up a pack of stickers. I love these flower stickers by Martha Stewart so much but it's time to let them go and show others their beauty on a few simple cards.

I used a sentiment stamp by Close to my heart
The patterned paper is unknown right now. 
I'm spending way too much time looking for the manufacturer. 
I have to move on.

The next card,
I cut two 12x12 borders from Sunborn to fit around the edges of the card front 
The die cut under the flower is by Design Objectives. 
It was inked with distress ink before removing the die from the paper.
Sentiment by Hero Arts

Last card,

I'm using more of the packages of Elle's Studio products. 

This pink paper has pretty gold words on it.
The cream-colored die cut is by Spellbinders
The pink die cut is by Design Objectives.
The gold leafy die cut on the right upper side is a Cricut cut leftover from
And matches my 

This card is a fabulous example as to why I dislike using liquid adhesive. It's all warped and not evenly stuck down in places. SMH.
Always learning.

The patterned paper is unknown. I swap scraps with a friend.

End of 1980 and into 1981 Pocket Pages

This isn't the most exciting 2-page layout but I need to keep going.
I used a lot of the same supplies as the previous layouts.
The patterned paper is by Stampin Up (left) and The Paper Studio (right)
Funny things:
The left side, the Christmas tree inside the house photo. My MIL always loved big Christmas trees and she got one this year. I bet you the heckled her for that. But she loved decorating for Christmas.

Then on the right side, there is a paper in dad’s hand that says HELP. It saddens me that no one else in the family finds that as funny as I do.

Manly Monday Blue with Red Flames Card

This is the last of the star with red flames that I can find.
Every boy in my family is probably singing Hallahuah!

Back story. I made 20 or more birthday invitations for one of my nephews 
His mother never sent them out. 
Fast forward, His parents got a divorce and a new mother in the house needs a round of applause 👏

Luckily and very nice of her to think of this,
She asked me if I wanted the invitations back to use them for something else.
The invitations were just sitting at their house and she was going to throw them away.
I’ve made them into birthday cards and have been giving one to each little boy in our families.

The flame is a foam stamp with no name
The red paint is called Happy Huey by Jillibean Soup
The star is a Creative Memories punch. 
I had sprayed it with different colors of Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)
The blue dry embossed (Cuttlebug/Provo Craft) was also sprayed with Glimmer mist too 
I was checking to see which ones still sprayed the mist and not many had a nice spray like hairspray. I'm not fond of the plops of ink. Personal preference
The sentiment at the bottom is a sticker by Three Bugs in a Rug.
I think the sentiment will make it harder to find someone to give it to.
We'll see.

Thanks for stopping by to check out today's Manly Monday card.
I have mixed feelings when my card isn't for an adult man for this post on my masculine themed day 
The last few posts have been more for boys or teens...anyway.

Graduation Reveal Wheel Card

Welcome. Today I have a reveal wheel card. This is a new one for me and after multiple attempts, I still struggle with it. But I'm going to keep trying. I wanted this die set so badly. I need to make this more than once or twice.

Stamps by Clear Dollar Stamp, Michael's dollar bin and the stars are by Stampin UP

Sentiment - Stickers "The Job Search Begins" by EK Success and it's called Label Lingo. I've had them forever.

The reveal wheel die-cut set is by Lawn Fawn

I only used white and blue cardstock.

After I took the above picture, I realized that the panel was an odd size and wasn't going to fit my normal 4x5.5 white card base.
Enter the decorative scissors. Oh, yes I did. :)
I liked the scallop with the scallop spinner.

Here are some notes to self on things I did differently on this reveal wheel card as opposed to the others I haven’t posted yet:
There is foam adhesive under the wheel but with the release paper still on. Therefore, the spinner won’t droop down around the edges. Drooping also happens when you use thin paper for the spinner. So for this card I also used thicker cardstock for the spinner die cut.

The die- cuts are die-cut inlay on the word baby.
I used washi tape at the bottom
Card size is 4x3 
I had to make an envelope on my We R Memory Keepers to fit such a small card.

1980 Summertime Pocket Pages Scrapbook layouts

Today’s layout starts with a disclaimer:
For now, the left side layout is plain and needs something before its deemed as finished. It does need some labeling but I’m holding off until I know what I’m going to do with the rest of the page.

I had two ideas and made those ideas into embellishments just as I had envisioned them.
Problem: the embellishments looked good alone but not on the layout.
Sometimes you have leave a layout and come back to it. Time to move on to the next pages. Things will fall into place just not yet. 
The other side is my husband’s maternal grandparents 40th wedding anniversary.
The  grandkids were left at Grandma and Grandpa’s house 
There’s a picture of them in the top left. 
Crazy to me, how that picture was overexposed or something.
You look at that picture and the ground looks like snow. It’s not snow.
Their anniversary was at the end of June and everyone’s attire points to summer or at least warm weather.

The patterned papers are by Me and My Big Ideas
Some labeling stamps by Lawn Fawn 
A few label stamps were from SNP, which is no longer in business.
