It's Graduation Season

Hello everyone!  I have a graduation card for your inspiration.  I've gotta tell ya, working with tiny little feathers is not easy.  I wanted a wise old owl on the front.  So I dug out my feather collection.  I found a package of Guinea fowl feathers.  I liked the colors and they were not to big to work with.  Boy was I in for a mess.  I'll finish the story in a minute.  But first lets do the colors:

~From the ScrappDew Vault:
     Grad Hoot PNG
     Owl 2015

~Guinea Fowl Feathers
~TPC Class Act Tassel Toss paper by Colorbok
~Graduation stickers from Walmart
~KNK Zing Electronic Die cutting machine
~Make the Cut Software
~Scissors, quilting ruler, glue stick, needle nosed tweezers and other stuff.

OK now back to the story.  I gave my kitty Emmie a feather to play with while I glued them on the wise old owl I was making.  The next thing I see is Emmie jumping onto the work bench.  The feathers went flying everywhere.  Oh well, the  vacuum cleaner will pick them up in the morning.

So here is the completed graduation card.
Here is the wise old owl.  I just happened to have paper with motar boards.

Here is the inside

And finally the back cover.

It's turned out OK.  I will have to re-visit using feathers sometime in the future.  So that's it for this week.  I have to design a birthday card for a dear friend so maybe that will be the project for next week.  

Hope to have you visit again very soon.  Bright Blessings for a fabulous week ahead, Jana

Neighborly Birthday!

Would you believe that I forgot to post this last week.  Well better late than never.

Hello all!  Today I have for you a birthday card that is out of this world.  I am terrible at creating manly cards.  But I think that this one fits the bill very well.  Here are the lyrics...

*Out of this world by ScrappyDew (Vault 2012)
     {I used the whole collection}
*DCWV The stardust stack
*Recollections scraps
*My Scrap Chick 5x7 card in a box svg file
*24" Silver bullet Cutter
*Sure Cuts A Lot v4.88
*KNK Zing and Make the cut software
*All the basic tools we all use daily

Here is the card that I created for Chads birthday.

The 5x7 card in a box finished.

I just love this paper.  DCWV Stardust stack.

This paper is also from the Stardust Stack.

The outside of finished card.

Other side of finished card.

The left side flap.

Right side flap.

The finished front of card.

And the back where I will write a short note.
I must tell you, Chad was amazed at his card.  So happy he liked it.  Good neighbor relations are a must have in my book.

 So for now, bright blessings for the rest of the month, see you soon, Jana.

I'm back

Hello everyone.  I think that I have figured out how to manage my time.  If you haven't heard I am working as office manager for our machine shop.  Owning your own business has it's perks.  One of those being that I can craft when I want to; but really only when I get the office stuff done.

So this week I have a couple of new baby cards.   Would you believe that the new little ones were born 24 hours apart?  Both are little boys and perfect in every way!  Let's see what colors I have used this week.

~I used Baby Monkeys from Scrappy Dew (I can not find this file)
~Bits and pieces of various papers
~Zenith KNK Zing electronic cutter
~Make the cut software
~All the usual stuff

So here is my projects:

The envelopes, the paper says it's a boy.

For Baby Corrick and Baby Derek

Inside for Corrick

Inside for Derek

These were a lot of fun to make.  I think that the center step card really sets these cards off.  Now next week I will have another project.  It's graduation time, so that is probably what I will focus on.  Have your best week ever, bright blessings, Jana
