Week # 34

52 Sketches, 52 weeks.
This is the #34 layout I made of my son Matthew

CPS130 - Card positioning system

This was a great opportunity to try out my new halloween stamp set. Halloween is on its way.

I scored both sides of the card to create a two flap card. The happy halloween opens up and the haunted house opens up.

I also tried for the first time the shoe lace brads with floss.

I hope you enjoy the card.

Baby Announcement

This was the baby announcement that was created for my daughter Chelsea. Thank you to my Stampin UP! group for helping me create them.

The design idea came from Stampin Up! With some modification to colors and ribbon.
You can find it in the spring-summer 2009 catalog on pg. 143.

The design I created uses chocolate chip, pale plum, and Lavender Lace color cardstock.

The entire front image is attached to a medium size envelope with the top removed and a circle punch used for the tab.
A scallop edge punch was used for the top and bottom of the chocolate chip cardstock.

Thank you card

This card was created using the stamping up "definitely decorative daisy", and "Best Blossoms stamp sets. The stitching was done by hand and the colors are the Stampin Up! YoYo yellow, and Only orange.

Valentines Day Card

This was a simple card I completed for Valentines Day. I had several variations, including one with sequins.
