Envelope Boxes

As you can see my camera is dieing, I haven't been posting because I can't get a clear shot! The boxes are made with the envelope die a step by step tutorial can be found at this blog: http://danniesdesigns.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/10/big-shot-scallo.html
I used the Ghostly Greeting designer paper and Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, and Whisper White card stock. The stamps are from the Batty for You set, I colored them with markers.
I'm trying to get some cards done so that when my daughter comes home this weekend I can shot some pictures with her camera so I can post some clear shots.

I thought I'd share this card today. I don't know who made it, but I think it is pretty. It would be simple to duplicate with other color and stamp sets.

12" x 12" Scrapbook Page II

This one I have decided needs another layer of matting behind the pictures. I am going for fast because I am years behind in scrap-booking. I do my album (called the family one) and a set for each child. I have 5 children and one grandchild... I am so behind. So my layouts and embellishments have to be fast and simple. Though I have decided that I need to do some with a little more, so that I can feel like I created. Hope you all are having a great day!

Double Page Layout

So my paper isn't Stampin' up, I've been scrap-booking for about 18 years (I'm 5 years behind on my albums, 4-10 years behind on by children's albums) When I started I lived in California and there wasn't such a thing as a scrapbook store there, so every time I visited Utah I would stock up at Pebbles or KMA so now I am combining years old paper from who knows where to the paper I now buy from Stampin' up. I mirrored the paper strips on each page then added the matted pictures. I have about 25- 12" x 12", 12- 8 1/2" 11", 1- 6" x 6" Books done so far. If my husband knew how many thousands of dollars are invested in those books...
