Gecko Galz

It's spring and that means lots of birds have returned! I made this little bird watching journal using new product from Gecko Galz. The journal was one I bought from European Papers and is held together by a stick and a band. I used All Things Lost paper (from the Gecko Galz Secret Garden set) to cover it, then made the birds (from the Aviary 2 ephemera set) bigger in Photoshop and cut them out. The ticket behind the birds is from Tickets please ephemera. I then got into my stash and added lace, rhinestones and a chipboard frame. Now I have a journal to record my daily bird sightings!!!

She's so sweet!!!

I love this picture of my little great-niece, Aria, and I wanted to use papers with a fun, playful feel to them for my layout! I used the Free to Be Me super paper pad from Momenta for the papers. The super paper pads are great because they also include several types of letter stickers and cardstock!
I also used Momenta's clear layered flower stickers on the page, some Tim Holtz adage tickets, stamped the date with my Smash stamp and my page was finished!!

Butterfly Kisses Blog Hop

My card is made using an image by Sherri Baldy. It's called Element 41 - Just Pink. I sized the image in Photoshop, printed it on purple Basic Grey paper, cut it to size, rounded the corner and added my other papers. The edges were inked, a bow tied, then I added my butterfly - a Jenni Bowlin vellum embellishment. I love this image - it's so pretty and it's already colored, all I had to do was print and use!!!

Mail Art Envelope #2

Another mail art piece - it's such fun to stamp and stencil on these !!!! (But did you notice that I stenciled the big eye upside down??!!!)
The quote on the back of this envelope is from a rubber stamp and reads:
"In the middle of the journey of our life
I came to myself within a dark wood
Where the straight way was lost."
