I have made quite a few things over the past months so I thought I would backtrack just a bit and post a few samplings of those projects. So without further ado, here they are in no particular order.

Gracie Lynn's birthday card


Dark pink card stock – Club Scrap
White card stock – Stampin’ Up!
Spellbinders dies
Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol
Ribbon from JoAnns
Pink Passion Classic Ink from Stampin’ Up!
Stylus for texturizing pockets
Black Souffle’ Pen from Sakura

I love how this ornament turned out and it was made from a minimal amount of products which is always good. In fact, the base was made from a recycled cardboard ribbon spool, plain white card stock, organdy ribbon and a leftover snowflake sticker. The inspiration for this came from a tutorial by Becca Feeken over at Amazing Paper Grace. Here’s the link to her tutorial. I didn’t have the same Spellbinders die that she used, but I had a similar one which worked out great. The picture below shows the decoupage box that I made as well.

I made 3 of these wreaths for Christmas gifts this year, each with a different color of butterfly. These are easy and inexpensive to make, but do take quite a bit of time. They are made by punching scalloped circles from lunch bags and adding them to a styrofoam base. I love how they turned out. Inspiration from these came directly from a post I saw at Mary Janes and Galoshes Blog . She used numerous butterflies on her wreath whereas I decided to use just 3.
