Happy Thoughts

Do you sometimes see striped paper and wonder what to use it for? This card was inspired by one I saw in the July issue of Cards Magazine. The punched shape is one of the papers from the Mayberry Paperpack. To give the paper some stability I adhered it to a piece of plain cardstock before I punched it out. The button was sewn on with embroidery floss. The sentiment inside the card is ..."coming your way". The sentiments are from the CTMH Card Chatter - Sympathy stamp set (D1476).

My Creations Photo Cube

I have used the My Creations photo cube to make a display of photos from a family wedding. The wedding colors were silver and white and the reverse side of the Bliss papers were perfect! Some of the photos are mounted on chipboard bases for extra dimension. All of the photos are covered with the Top Coats transparencies. The Bookplates Dimensional Elements were heat embossed with Silver Pearl to frame the photos of the bride and groom dancing. A lot of the journaling was done with stamps. I added a chipboard page from the Mix & Mingle mini album to the front of the cube and this gave me a place for 2 additional photos. This was a fun project to make and will be a treasured keepsake.
