Happy Thanksgiving Card

   The pinecone design has been released this week!
  A basic 4.5 by 5.5 pattern was used for the card.  I used my Gazelle pen feature with my glue pen inserted to write the title on my card.  My favorite glue pen to use is the Quickie Glue. I let my machine write on my card, then put micro glitter on it. I am a fan of Ritz Glitter and the burnish technique. I cut the delicate pinecone with basic cardstock and then colored in some highlights. 
   So I have my card ready, grandchildren's surprise from Grandma treat boxes, turkey napkin holder, and cupcake wrappers done for Thanksgiving. Time to start cooking??? I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love, family and blessings!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Happy Birthday Samantha !!

 It seems lately, I am rushing to get family cards finished in time to give?? So today I decided my grand-daughter Samantha would have her card made by Grandma! Since I started scrapbooking a few years ago, my family now takes the time to have my grandchildren make me cards. What a treasure to receive and show them later in their lives.

This card is a side step card, which the pattern can be found easily by using Google. The beautiful Princess is another LaLaLand stamp. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope everyone has a great week! Check back often as we are getting ready to display Christmas projects I hope you will enjoy!

Give Thanks Fall Layout by Judy Stark

This layout was so much fun to make! So easy to get creative with the great Bo-Bunny Fall line of paper and LaLaLandCrafts . Pine Cones with branches designed by me.

The adorable Pilgram boy is a newly released LaLa Land stamp. 

  The "Give Thanks" title was made using my  Gazelle PEN feature. You don't need a special attachment to use this feature. Just remove blade and insert your pen or marker. I used a PrismaMarker which is quite large, but you can use a regular ball point pen if you choose. The pen feature is one of my favorite features on my Gazelle.
  I then cut the flower design from another sheet of cardstock and applied in the bottom left corner. I glued the bottom and left side. I now have a pocket to put a copy of the CD of photo's taken during the holidays.
I made journal cards and will add descriptions on them.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope everyone has a great week!
