Taking flight.....

Just wanted to pop in and show you another card I have made in the past couple weeks. I used the My Minds Eye paper stack...Home collection. These papers are super pretty and glittery! I designed the card on my Gypsy by Provo Craft. The cartridge I used was Straight From the Nest. I love that little machine....has made my life even better! Flowers and pearls are Prima. I also used my cuttlebug for the background.....embossing folder is the plaid folder.

Have a great Memorial weekend! Be safe!!

Good Morning to you.....

Well hello!! I know its been a few days longer than I wanted between posts. This really was not my intention. My hubby and I went out of town and before I left took lots of photos of recent projects. I was hoping to be able to post everyday while I was gone.....but sadly was not able to have internet.....soooo I was very sad! But I did get to finish a book I have been reading and got to relax by the pool. Lots of fun! Now I have soooo much to show you....I will be breaking it up over the next week. LOL I will have posts for awhile! To start off I will show you a Mothers Day project I did. I actually created it for the Boxed-in gypsy challenge on the message board. I used Tags Bags Boxes and More{love this cartridge} and the new limited edition Mothers Day cartridge. I welded the "Happy Mothers Day" on the crayon box and then alcohol inked some transperency to put behind the effect. The inside was done by welding 5 tags together....easy!

Inside of photo.....

Close-up of how I alcohol inked the transperency behind the words......

Yahoo!! I finally figured out how to edit my own posts....took a little while but I did it!!
Hope you all have a great day! Will be back tomorrow!

The Bug Bytes!!

Hi there! Sorry this is later than you are all used to. My hubby and I are going out of town and I am trying to get my kiddos all know how that!
I am super excited to be apart of such an awesome group of ladies! Thanks Pam for letting me join in! Enough rambling and on to the design. I decided to make a card for my project. With all the different types of cards.....side step.....tri-fold......etc. I designed a gate fold card using Accent Essentials for the base....also used Home Decor and Mini Monograms.
Here is the inside of the card, isn't it beautiful?

Once all my pieces were cut I inked all pieces using distress gives such depth.
Then of course I had to do some stitching.......I just punched my holes and used the heavy machine thread. Next....put it all together!
I tried to take some photos of my layout on the gypsy.....they aren't as clear as I would have liked but I think you can get a pretty good idea how I set up my pages.
I do not have exact measurements for the pieces because on some of the images I tugged and stretched to get them the way I wanted. The finished size of this card is 4.25x4.50 inches. I have never shared a file but I will work on it this weekend while I am away so you all can download. I will post that on my blog over at AmysScrappySpace.
I sure hope you like my project! It was fun and I want to thank Pam again for letting me be a part of her team.
Thanks Sassy for helping me set this up.....I was having technical difficulties. Thanks for your patience.....have a great day! See you next month, Amy!
