The ribbon is by Michael's and Oriental Trading Company

The die-cut is by Spellbinders

Manly Monday Hang in there Frogs. It's only a birthday

The stamp is by Stamp N Plus. I did a second-generation stamping on these two cards. Years ago I colored them in with powdered chalk mixed with paint. I added some Copic markers and colored pencils to make the frogs look more enhanced.
The frog images were too close on the white cardstock to die-cut. So, with the wild theme, I just ripped the paper and inked the edges. The background is a Fiskars embossing plate but I think they had a different name than that. I took a distress ink and went direct to paper and look how fun it is with the lizards, dragonflies, and frogs showing up in white.

This is the inside of the card where I was able to use Cricut's Draw feature. I placed the card base on the mat and it did what it did.

Here are some other examples of this stamp

Four Cards using a wreath die cut

I've had these wreath die-cuts in my stash for years. It was time to take an afternoon and put them onto cards. I made the sentiments with my Cricut using the draw and cut feature. The wreath die-cuts are unknown. I did ink them with Colorbox chalk ink, distress ink, or colored in with colored pencils (the one on the far left). The patterned paper is by Making Memories called Autumn Splendors. There are pieces of patterned paper by Provo Craft. The jute is by Tim Holtz. Border punch by EK Success.

These probably weren't the best two stencils to use together with the yellow and red Distress Oxide inks.

The Sisterhood of Crafters is to use a stencil. I used two.

These next couple of pictures show the yellow cards I made with the same floral Clearly Besotted stamp set.

Christmas card book through the years with the Sarjeants

This first card really shows my old style of scrapbooking. I used many components of the actual Christmas card they sent with the photo. Things like the circle at the bottom. I cut it out with the Creative Memories cutting system. I circle punched the sentiment (Peace) and then larger green circles for them to stand out. Then, I cut out what was written on the inside and taped it onto the left side border stickers. I even cut out their signature and placed it below the title. I stamped their name on white cardstock and cut them out. That and the year is on the right side. It's a super old fashion way to scrapbook but that's what I did at that time. 

The second one:
The big flower in the center is by Jolee's. The patterned paper is beautiful but unknown.
The banner and the stars in the corner were cut out with my Cricut

The third card:
The blue paper did all of the work, all I did was add their names on blue cardstock with Lawn Fawn ABC's stamps.

This 4th year is a little bit fancier.
There's a rhinestone circle around the year of the card.
The tag includes their last name because it isn't listed on the Christmas card.

The next thing we received is a graduation announcement
I made the sandy paper bottom left with torn paper and distress ink.
I used the sun rays stencil by Tim Holtz and Squeezed Lemon Distress ink.
On the right side, I used pre-made patterned paper.
I added the middle embellishments above and below her photo in the center.

September Calendar Layout Surprise party pictures

Guessing game on this calendar layout. It was for a 2019 calendar.
The stamps on the previous ATC in the center are by Lawn Fawn ABCs and I'm not sure about the grass.

The stickers are by Creative Memories (Apples) and EK Success (Acorn)

The die-cut border punch is by Martha Stewart

The background patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers (That's a guess)

It's been a while since I did this layout. So I'm not exactly sure but I think these leaves were on a cake and my husband took the back off of them for me to use. I think the leaves started out like the one on the left and ended up like the picture below.

I think I tried to heat emboss and ended up with glossy accents over the top.
