Birthday: Four Feathers on Vellum


I wanted to show how lightweight feathers are, so I used VersaMark on Vellum with a white embossing powder.  I also embossed the Gorgeous Grunge lines on the background and the sentiment.  I love how light and airy the feathers turned out.

Colors:
Baked Brown Sugar
Vellum
White Embossing Powder

Stamps:
Four Feathers
Gorgeous Grunge
A random Happy Birthday stamp

Scrapbooking: Museum of the Rockies



Our annual fall trip to Yellowstone National Park always includes a trip to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana.  No matter how many times we go, the museum never fails to thrill and entertain us.  This year Jakob was three years old and LOVES dinosaurs.  He was absolutely fascinated with the entire experience!

Aaron created this page, with a little help from Malanie.

Scrapbooking: Jason at Boot Camp






The background colors are Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, and More Mustard.  Malanie created these pages, with a little help from Aaron.

I wish Stampin' Up! would make more 12x12 papers.

Scrapbooking: Yellowstone Park

Our annual trip to Yellowstone National Park was in September.  Aaron made this page showing the trip to Bozeman, Montana.  The snow was falling as we drove up that morning, but what a beautiful drive!

The 12x12 paper is from the Neutrals Collection, so I am not sure what color it is.  Cajun Craze and Soft Suede were also used.

The alphabet set is a new set for me.  It is a Scrabble Alphabet.  How fun!

Scrapbooking: Project Life with Ella Again

This is the back side of the Project Life page for Ella.  My daughter, Aaron, is the scrapbooker here.  My son, Adam, is the proud father.

Green and purple are the background colors.  Again, embossing folders, stamps, pearls, and punches were used on each of the Project Life sections.  A sticker set was also used.

Scrapbooking: More Boot Camp Pages for Jason





Fortunately, my daughter, Aaron, and daughter-in-law, Malanie, are scrapbookers.  I prefer making cards.  But, about once a month, they get together at my house to create their scrapbook pages. 

My son, Jason, graduated from boot camp and is now is attending AIT training.  So many pictures and memories!  Today, Aaron and Malanie created four pages to add to his scrapbook.

Until next month...

Christmas 2x2 Inchie Challenge


Another two-inchie challenge for our card and scrapbooking club.  The tree is done in Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, and Very Vanilla.  The ornament is done in Real Red and Garden Green.  Each inchie used three stamped and punched images.  Then, the image was scored in half and attached to two other images.  Easy peasy!
