Freewheeling Friday 1-23-09

This card is really fun because when you pll the string it pops up and you can set it on your counter.  I’m not sure who came up with the original design, but I made this card at one of Janice’s Club nights. 

party-hearty-pop-up-closedIt features the Big Bold Birthday set #114926 $28.95.  I’m really excited because now they have a Stampin’ Up! exclusive Sizzlits’ 4-pack dies for the Big shot that match this great set 114509 $21.95.  I can’t wait to get it and try it out.  What fun we can have.

party-hearty-pop-up-cardIf you look close you can see the wheel that was rolled on the basic part of the card to create a background. (red part)  Wheels are a really great way to add a little depth to a project.  They are so fast and easy.

Thrifty Thursday 1-22-09

Sometimes we think we need to get really complicated when we are scrap-booking.  My up-line Amy Johnson taught me that in most cases we just need to keep it simple.  Her favorite way to scrapbook is using quick strips. 

 Here are some fun quick strips I made with the sports stamps.  A few of the items are retired, but you can see how to take the same basic idea a create different pages just by how you put them together.  You can save time and money with this simple layout.  Noticed how I just changed the way the strips were layed out and the accent pieces to create 4 different looks.
