This is one of the tags!
If you have any questions please let me know! Hug Kelly

Toilet Paper Mini Album

Today I am posting a Toilet Paper mini album that I made, I am also linking it over ti Outstanding mini albums to see if she will use it in her next book, Wish me luck!! The patterned paper that I used is SU and I believe it is retired, I smashed 2 toilet paper rolls and placed a heavy book to make sure they stay flat. The pages inside the book were cut at 4 1/4 x 2 1/2, you can put as many pages or as few as you wish, I made 2 tags to go into each cover(which are the toilet paper rolls) they are cut at 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 I used the SU Round Tag punch to make the tabs, I used the patterned paper to cover light cardboard and then cut out flowers using SU Blossom Party Die, I used the computer to print the Beatttitudes and used them to decorate this book. I hope you like my book and will try your own. Thanks for looking,

For my Friends

I have started a new bible study with a few friends of mine, Ruth J. (shes leading) Shelly H, Brenda K. and her niece. It is called Beloved Disciple by Beth Moore. Well I wanted to give a small gift to each and I had seen these cute little note pads at Madel's while picking up my work book.

I had to cut one of the note pads down a little, and had to stamp a saying on the pages of another but they were fun to make and the girls loved them.

Ingredients: 1- 12x12 double sided pattern paper(you could use solid)

I scored it at 6in for the center fold then flipped the paper and scored at 4in, rounded all corners, the bands are cut at 4in, 3in and 2in. I used stamp set Blessings from Heaven from SU a misc stamp from HL. I matched the colors and used SU inks. If you have question please ask. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Kelly

Tonight, Stamp Club Night!! Whoo Hoo!!

It seems like FOREVER since our last meeting. We got a little mixed up on dates and this is why it seems like forever. Well anyways, each meeting we have a card swap and I wanted to share the card that I will be swapping tonight.

Well here it is!!

I had seen this new punch from stamp in up and some really cool ideas, I did get this layout from another site but can't remember where. Sorry!
Ingredients for this card:
white card stock card base is 5 x 6 3/4
metallic yellow layer cut at 4 3/4 x 6 1/4
white card stock layer cut at 4 1/2 x 6 and
embossed w/SUeyelet embossing plate
I used the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch to punch 4different
colored bouquets, purple,yellow,green and blue.
added eggplant colored ribbon.
The sentiment is from mega mixed messages.
This was a really fun card to make and I think I will be making a few different cards using this punch.
Have a great day! Hugs Kelly

So Sorry!!!

I am so sorry that I have been away for a while, I have picked up a new hobby and I am really enjoying it!

I have a great friend her name is Shelly and she had taken up cycling over a year ago and had asked me to join her and Pippi(Giant road bike) I had always told her that I was to busy but decided to take her up on the challenge when another friend (Brenda and (Lucy AKA-Giant road bike) of ours had started joining her. They were always posting all the fun rides they had and all the THINGS the see, I just couldn't resist. Well lets just say they both had the right kind of bikes (Giants) now these are road bike which are very very light and easy to ride but my bike was a heavy mountian bike, I had always liked that bike until the first 20 mile ride with them in which I had to walk up most of the big hills!! They were alway waiting for me!!!! I really loved riding with them until that die I thought i would die, we started out in Kildare and rode to Kaw Dam and back it was 30 miles and really hot, I told them when we got back I would not be going again until I got a GOOD bike and retire Nana Peel (AKA- mountian bike)to local flat riding only!

Well that day came sooner then I thought my husband bought me Lexa (AKA-Trek) it was a joyous day in the Bay home. I brought her home and soon tried her out, 20 miles the first time and tad over 26 the second in which I could have rode longer but Shelly had rode a few to many the day before with Brenda and her knee was bothering her, but a great ride and cant wait to go again. In the pic is Lexa and I on an adventure with Shelly!

I will get back to stamping and post a few that I have done recently! Again sorry I haven't posted in a while I willl try to do better!! Kelly

I spent about 2hrs looking at different challenges that were posted this week and wanted to make 1 card using as many different challenges all incorporated into this one card.(I hope this makes sense) More chances to win and more challenging for me.

6.Sketches in Thyme-Use their sketch.
7. Bitten by the bug 2. Use a bird or armadillo.
8. Getting Cricky- Create something with a bird on it.

My card is 4 X 5 1/2 Brown (Sorry the pic makes it look purple, I dont know why that happens) card stock, Vanilla layer is 3 3/4 X 5 1/4 Old Olive is 3 1/2 X 5 embossed with cuttlebug, folder is dots (I think) Other brown layer is cut at 4 X 2, Bird is cut at 3 inch (Create a Critter), misc cream ribbon.

I simply love the way it turned out and will be making more of them in the future. It is much easier then it looks. I really like making odd shaped cards and love the challenge in making them. There is a great tutortial over at split coast if you want the complete details or just follow the basics instruction below for the basic card.

I submitted these in 4 challenges, 1 for Momo's Tuesday Challenge, 1 for cooking with Cricut, 1 for Paper Varity the other is for Fantabulous Cricut challenge.

My fellow employees Christmas gifts

Well, Happy New Year everyone and I hope it was safe one.
I have wanted to post what I had made for the girls that I work with for Christmas for quite some time but was afraid that one of them would get on my blog and see so I had to wait. Well now I can tell you, they are frames with there last names in them. I had bought a paper stack from DCWV it is called.....The At Home Stack. I used cream colored paper and basic brown ink and an alphabet stamp set from SU. The frames are from Dollar General only $3.00. I used SU flower punches to cut matching paper flowers from the paper stack, I really like how the paper flowers turn out. I really feel the frames turned out super cute. The girls at work thought I worked for ever on them, what dont know wont hurt huh!!! I am going to try to make more time this next year to do more crafting and spend more time in my room. I think I will even try my hand at making some videos. Thanks for your time and looking at my blog. Hugs Kelly
