Hope Card

Where I work we have a young lady that has cancer and it is aggressive. She has gone through much. I and the woman I work with wanted to do something special for her, so I made the card and she bought a small basket with a yellow rose and some greenry and gave it to her. She is fighting all she can. She said to us " I have cancer but it does not feel like it is there." She is putting up a brave battle, I pray she will win. She comes to work everyday with a positve attitude and a smile on her face.

Even though she is going through this, she does sometimes feel like she is not whole, I thought this quote might help her that even though she is going through a lot she is still beautiful no matter what.
She thanked us, she needed that. She made us cry.


Altered Stampin Up tin

I found a couple of these tins at a yard sale over the summmer.

So I decided to alter it to be used for a Christmas gift. I used GBS for this. It took several tries, but I thought it turned out pretty nice.

Inside of tin.

I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks silver and gold to put on the edge. Sorry pic is not very good. As soon as I can I will have the cut file uploaded to my account on mediafire.



Before Cricut






Yes....Before I found Cricut, I did scrapbooking differently. Here is some pics of some I had done. I used the tearing method, some embellies, 3-D stickers and such. I had even did one after the song, "When you wish upon a star". Thanks for looking~


Scrapbook Jingle song swap on Cricut MB

I recently joined a swap where you choose a fav. Christmas song and design a scrapbook page out of it. You sent in only the recipe items for it. You needed 4 blocks for pics.,1 Jornaling block, 4 die cut images and at least 3 other items to be added, such as brads, ribbon and etc., a title piece on sturdy cardstock.
I chose the song Silver Bells. I printed out the song and put it on cardstock. I then did 4 blocks for pics. I found a pic of Santa and children from a postcard (I think) put it in an editing software, added lines to be used as a jb. With my Cricut, I cut a city scene at 3 inces from PSB. The bells at 3 inch from Wedding cart. Silver Bells from Jasmine and the shodow using DS. The two women shopping I found on the internet. I converted it to an SVG and useing my Cricut and SCAL, I cut them out also at 3 inches. The street light is cut at 3 inches with the lights hidden in DS. I shortened and then used a 1 inch circle punch to punch the red and green for the lights.
