Birthday Wishes

My friend Pat birthday was on Wednesday and we when to Disneyland for the day. I had a wonderful time as always with Pat and Joey. Here is the gift I made her for her birthday.
I made this book from Coffee Filters:

Here is the inside cover and first page. There are no photo in this book yet. I made it so Pat can place all of her own photo into it at a later date.

Here are the next two pages in the book - Notice that I place a ribbon with words on it over the mat where the photo would go - I only glue to top on bottom of the ribbon so that Pat can place her photo under it......

More pages tomorrow

Here is a tag I made use Stamps, ink, mask, and pop top. I love tags they are easy to make - you can use them on a card, scrapbook page and more...

1) Cut Tag shape from Cream cardstock. Don't know how to make a tag - check out my Youtube video for "How to Make a tag" for easy direction...
2) lay down your Tim Holtz "compass" mask in lower corner - Make sure you leave part of the mask hang off the tag - this is a good tip for design -
3) Using Stewart Superior Memories Chalk "western tan" first - I covered the whole mask area. Then I add Memories Chalk "gingerbread" again covering the whole mask. Add color until you are happy with the outcome...

4) Stamp using Memories Chalk "western tan" and Stampotique "Vintage Script" stamp on top of tag. Ink all edges in both "western tan" and "gingerbread".

5) Stamp using Memories Dye Ink "Artprint brown" and Stampotique "little bird". When you ink your stamp - stamp two birds in full ink and one bird with less ink - you can ink and stamp on a spare piece of paper and then on your project - OR i just stamp the first bird then I stamp again on the same tag. Getting a second image of this bird.
6) Added a pop top embellishment. Also added just a little Memories Dye ink "BlueBird" in three spots of tag to help match the pop top embellishment....
7) Add some ribbon. and you are done....

There Lived a Beautiful Princess

There Lived a Beautiful Princess:
I really like this page. I had fun doing it also. The paper I used really helped - most of the work was done. But I did add details...

Paper is from Die Cuts with a View - the Once Upon a Time Stack. Also some red cardstock for the large circle and the swirls. I cut the circle and the swirls using my Cricuit Machine. I added Gold detailing with a upcoming product from Stewart Superior. I will tell you more about it as more information is available.
The Seal is a "wax seal sticker" I got a Disneyland.
The Flowers are silk and gold detailing and a gem was added.

The Little dress is from EK Sucess. It's so cute.

Well there was nothing too special on this page. I just took my time and added lots of details.

please remember you can all was e-mail me with question.
