Happy Birthday Tomasz

Front View - Step Card
Side View
This has got to be the easiest and quickest step card I've made. I followed my own measurements and design for this. Our challenge #51 at Pattie's Creations has a theme of 'Birthdays'. I'd like to wish 2 members of our DT a Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday to Anne and Charlene!!
The image I used from Pattie's Creations is called 'Dog Days of Summer' and it's too freakin' cute!! It's new home is with our great-nephew Tomasz whose birthday was in July.

Vintage Lady ATC

Front View

Inside View

Back View
My ATC is for a Swap in Creating the Crafty Life. The theme is Vintage Lady. I like making my ATC's similar to a greeting card style. All images were found on the Internet. I distressed the edges of the front DP, and then sponged on ink on all exposed edges for effect. All of my embellishments are from Pizzazzaplenty.

Thinking of You

View of 3 layers
(Oval, main flower, flower center)
In one of the groups I belong to, one of our member's son had passed away recently. Some of us are sending cards to the contact person and she will forward all on to her. It was our choice to make a 'Thinking of You' or 'Sympathy' worded card.
The image I used is a Pre-Colored sheet with individual layer pieces to be cut around and placed with foam dots for dimension. You can get this sheet from Fred She Said Designs.

Memo Paper Holder

Original Vinyl Paper Holder
Inside of Original Paper Holder
I thought it would be a cool idea to try to make one of these paper holders using strictly card stock. I had one technical issue with the lid not closing down, so I added that little metal X's and O's piece and that did the trick. I discovered my error was in my measurements being off by an 1/8". I altered my measurements for the next one that I'll make. It wasn't all that hard to make. Maybe I'll get adventurous and make a video or a tutorial of how I did it. Hmmm, we'll see!
Anyway, this creation is my DT project for Pattie's Creations Challenge #50, and the theme is 'Anything but a Card'. The DP I used was cut twice and glued together to make it heavier, and to have that double-sided look. The image from Pattie is titled 'Purrfect Luv'.
