SO MUCH of what I create is inspired by what Paulette at Create with TLC shares on her blog or in her store... Today is her birthday! PLEASE go to see her at one of corners in the big WWW and send love and birthday greetings!
Paulette at Create with TLC has a week long challenge to use her images and be the first to submit them to her and get a free set from her store. I used a floral image as well as wordart... To use these, click to save to your own computer and print when you need a bookmark...
I love reading and have a hard time making time for it...but when I do I enjoy a nice bookmark to save my place... KEEP CALM AND READ ON ...
I am going to use the wordart seal as the seal to the back of the notecard and the small shamrock seal as an element inside of the card attached with a glue dot and then write my letter around it.
Word art is from Paulette at Create with TLC.
Template and Layout is by myself.
Shamrock fill is from the www.
Good ole fashioned letter writing has taken a backseat to the technology world. I really believe a hand written note of thanks, greeting, invitation, etc is appreciated and personal. Let's bring back the hand written notes!
This is a topper I did a few years ago and when I went to print that file, I was not happy with the quality of the print ~~ So I redid it! The snowman image is from Paulette at Create with TLC.
It was part of her WINTER SCRAPPIN CLUB 2007. I have made my own bubble wands with wire and plastic beads along with a bottle of "miracle bubbles" as the label on the bottle already calls them! These will be on my craft table tomorrow so I will get pictures of it all then and post on Sunday or Monday.
I also redid the topper I used years ago... I created the concept of a "HOLIDAY CUT-UP". I did one for Easter and Halloween and Thanksgiving too! This one is redone for CHRISTMAS.
In the baggie this gets attached to, I included two cookie cutters and a 3x4 ziploc baggie that has sprinkles/jimmies in it. I included 2 TBSP of the topping with the two cookie cutters and attached the topper.
Both of these toppers sell for $2.50.
This topper gets put onto a 3x4 baggie with oatmeal and colored sugar or Christmas Sprinkles used for decorating cookies ...
The Reindeer topper is created by Paulette too! I just added the wording...
I guess this is what happens when you take on jobs outside of the home for other people. My time is never my own any more. I apologize to you as well as myself. I am trying to figure out how to get some "me" time back and back to creating again... Yesterday was my 48th Birthday and I decided that I need to find "ME" again! It has been far too long that "I've" been in the back seat. I hope to see you more frequently in the month ahead!
I believe I told you over a year ago that my husband and I are co managers at the local Performing Arts Center here where we live... Well... Our new SEASON is starting on May 31st! We are really excited about ti all! TONS of work and time involved, but it is all good! The month of May brought us two events prior to the GEM OF A SEASON lineup... The posters for them are here:
Now the next event is May 31 and it is the first in the series of 9 for the year!!
As acting manager, I am responsible to create the posters and tickets as well as any other publications and forms needed. I just thought I would share what has been the most recent list of activities for our lives. We are keeping busy that is for sure!
