Thanks for looking today!

Today, as promised, I am sharing a mini scrapbook that I made using TGF full sheet set called Sunshine. I bought this set from TAMIKO'S and was asked to make a sample...I've been wanting to make a mini scrapbook and this set was perfect for the job. Here are the pages...I think I able to use up all of the stamps in this set.

Both Cheryl and I love the color pink and while I was coloring I though, why not, pink hair, kinda cute! and yes, another shaker! What is it with me and these shakers...I can't get enough. Guess I'll make shakers until I run out of beads - LOL!

As you can see, I'm still on a shaker kick so decided to use one of the leftover circle scallop cut outs from my class and make it into a shaker. Here's a closer look at the sweet giraffe...

BTW, I typed up the sentiment on my computer using the font called won ton...and I used the sentiment "ai yah" on the front of the card because Joyce has vanity plates on her car that says "ai yah"...she got a kick out of it!
Other supplies used for the card - nesties frame (and I left in the cut out for a solid center), bling, oval punches (SU). And here's another birthday card I made. This one is for my partner in crime, Wini, who celebrated her bday in May. Do you love this huge flower?? Got it from Little C's. Nesties to cut out the shaker window and TGF image is from a cute set called Roll Call...got that from Tamikos! Colored the image using my copies, I thought the greens blended pretty good...that's Wini's favorite color!

Here's the second baby girl card we made at class. I used the flowers from the One of a Kind stamp set and the tiny flower is from a set called Enjoy Every Moment, one of my favorite little flowers! This card is the girl version of the boy sailboat card I posted the other day. This little elephant is just so cute, and I know I keep saying it over and over, but I love this stamp set! The inside is the same as the boy card too.

Today, my baby turns 15 years old. It's hard for me to believe how fast time flies. I can still remember the day he was born and because girls run in our family (I have 2 sisters, and they have 2 girls each), I thought I was having a girl...we didn't know what to expect with a boy, LOL!
On to my card! I'm sharing another card that we made at the class. We used square punches and cut them in half for the sailboat and also the 1 3/4" circle punch and cut it it half. The "water" was created with a sponge. We used the top note die and the lots of dots embossing folder to add texture to the not quite navy cardstock. A taffeta bow added the finishing touch. The sentiment came from the Nursery Necessities stamp set. Here's the inside...the foot came from a retired set, but I love this foot!

This past weekend was my June classes and the theme was Babies...I had alot of fun creating the cards for this class because it featured 2 shaker cards. I'm sharing this one today, because it's my favorite from the bunch. This stamp set is one of my fave baby sets and it's on the Last Chance list! Boo hoo!! If you love this set and don't have it yet, there's still time to order it! Here's the inside of the card...

Anyway, I wanted to share this FABULOUS shelf I got from my BBF Kyoko Her talented hubby, Frank handcrafted this beautiful shelf...I LOVE IT!! I use it to store my copics and a few of my other crafting necessities. I thought I had alot of pens, but now I know that I NEED more to fill up my shelves LOL!! The good news is that you can own one of these beautiful shelves for your craft space because they are available for purchase!! Interested? Send me an email and I will hook you up with Kyoko. This shelf is not too big, but just right for us crafters. Thank you Frank for the beautiful craftsmanship on this shelf!
I also wanted to share with you a gift that I received from my friend Colleen. Last year for my bday, Colleen sent me a e-gift card from Build-a-Bear Workshop to get a sunkissed Hello Kitty. I never had the time to go down to Ala Moana to redeem it and before I knew it, the store closed!! I met a lady that used to work at the store and she told me that they were planning on opening at a different location - never happened. Colleen offered to redeem it in California and mail it to me. I love it! Thanks Colleen!

The size of the card is the regular A2 size (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) and I did a whole bunch of layers to make it look nice! The sentiments inside the card are both by SU and are my favorite sentiments for birthday cards! On the pocket, the image is one by Whipper Snapper and the sentiment is by Hero Arts (I think).
Here's what it looks like when you slip the card into the pocket...I'll be making more of these fun cards so I'll be showing them to you when I'm done. Just wanted to share another shaker card that I made for a friend who "ordered" a card for his friend. They are both surfer dudes so this image was appropriate. I'm so happy that I'm making good use of this surfer image (by SU). The sentiment was computer generated. I cut the window using my new nestie die.
Thanks for looking today. I'm so glad it's the weekend. Now, I'll finally be able to visit some of your blogs that I've been wanting to do. It's so difficult and frustrating for me when I want to do something to relax and unwind, but can't because there's so many things that I really have to do before I can get to the relax and unwind part...and when I run out of time and don't get to even relax just for a bit, I want to cry! Okay, enough ranting...thanks for letting me get that off my chest! Have a wonderful weekend!

This class will be focused on baby cards. We will be making 2 baby girl cards and 2 baby boy cards and 1 pink, 1 blue gift bag. Not sure if I'll have time to do something else...thinking about that bonus project so I'll surprise you!
Here is the sample of the baby boy shaker card. We will be using my favorite baby set called Nursery Necessities and I was sad to find out that this set is on the Last Chance list!! If you love this set as much as I do, and you do not own it yet, don't wait to order it because once it's gone, it's gone!
I used the circle scallop sizzix die to cut the window for the shaker. Other supplies used: bashful blue taffeta ribbon. The card we will be making will use the bashful blue satin ribbon. Also, we will be using blue beads from the bead duo set. I improvised for this sample and used the chunky glitter. I didn't care for it too much because the glitter sticks to the acetate window. See the glitter? Not too happy with the glitter (sad face)...
