The messages are missing

The Missing messages again

Well now that I am home I will have to add the messages. The rest is from the scraps I took with me to the beach

Butterflies and Teapots

Again I used various scraps to die cut the butterflies, flowers, and background. The purple butterfly has three layers of butterflies, two in lavender and the one in purple that is sandwich between the lavender ones.

Halloween making cards at the Beach

Well the Halloween stuff arrived just before we left for the coast. In fact I waited for the postman. So here is what I made using the scraps at hand.

Messages Pending...

Messages will have to be added here at home. I couldn't take the whole house although we have thought of it.

Black and Beige Scraps

I love working with scraps. I filled the back seat of the car with scraping stuff for 'our' vacation at the beach. These are a few of the results.

Camera is at home so just chit chat...

When packing the car the back seat is reserved for arts and crafts. Small bag with clothes is in the trunk and away we go. First day out exercise is hauling everything in back seat up the stairs. It is fun to use just what I brought, thinking I forgot something and discovering something else here in my stash will do.

Using up all the scraps that I brought along. Fun fun fun cause I hear the trees saying please don't cut me down to make more paper until you use all your scraps. My definition of a scrap is smaller than 1 x 3.

I did through a handful of scraps away and the trees are still talking to me. Gosh you would think it is a mortal sin.

Shopping tomorrow for paint cans, jelly bellies, m&m'S, using gift card at target, and playing with new stamp set that arrive before I left. Well actually we didn't leave until it arrived.

Tri-shutter Card plus...

First silver card is scraps of wedding paper with ribbon on the seam line and added die cut flower. 2nd card is also wedding paper with narrow strips of silver added at random and die cut butterfly. 3rd card is a stampin up stamp with dazzles lining the edges, added ribbon circle and black bling circle. And last but not least is my first tri-fold shutter card which I chose to do in black and white, adding die cut and embossed designs.

Just chit chat today.

I have cards to photo and post however that will wait until the morrow. I move from silver to black and white card making. Love the crispness of that combination.
Then perused scs and saw something to case, but first I had to make a tri fold card. Again it in a black and white theme with layers of black and white. Look for it tomorrow.
Thank you to all the visitors to my blog. I love seeing where everyone lives. It really is a small world. Night everyone.

Wedding Cards plus Butterfly

First image is the inside of the 2nd image, Third card...
I saw a art wall in a professional building. The background was silver with silver strips floor to ceiling at different angles. And so this card was created with a butterfly added.

Couldn't return to sleep and this is what happens...

Card making from scraps of wedding paper. First card, outside view, background is strips of vellum, silver paper, and topped with black Dazzles. 2nd card has butterfly added. More to add later.

First two cards are easel cards, Then easel cards closed. Last card is plain ole regular card.

I chose to just make single card instead of easel cards with this set.
