This little mini album was inspired by a video that is on my stampin up web site. Our church does a bingo night with a retirement senior community the last Tuesday of every month. So while I was there one of the ladies who loves cards was telling me how her mother was so excited about her birthday and knowing she would get a home made card. I started telling her about this mini album and so I went home and threw this together in less than an hour so I could show it to her at church tonight. It would be a great gift for someone who loves getting home made cards, plus this family had a family outing this past weekend and took pictures. Anyway, this may not be my best, but not bad for a quick sample. To learn more about how to make this mini album and a few other album, please click on this link and it will take you to my stampin up web page. Then click on the Scrapbooking with Designer Series Paper video, bottom left.

I just love this stamp set by stampin' up!. You can do so much with it and when I was trying to decide what to use for this color challenge at Color Throwdown, Lavender Lace, Old Olive & Elegant Eggplant, as soon as I came across this set, I knew it was the one. I would have never thought of using these colors together, but they really are great together. The sketch comes from Inspirational Card Sketches and it was also great with this stamp set. I am now finally getting my card stash back up to par, except my daughter came in this morning and took two birthday cards. Now I have to do some more birthday cards. I think I need to start charging her. lol

My husband is a stampin widower now....

I was asked yesterday by one of my co-workers if I could do a retirement card for our Associate Dean who would be retiring. Even with all I have to do to get ready for Thursday's card class, I could not say no. I enjoy this too much. So I put this together last night. She loves the beach and is planning on spending a lot of time there, so I thought this would be very appropriate.
Stampin' Up! products used are: cardstock-Baja Breeze, Pacific Point (in-colors) and very vanilla. Classic ink - Not Quiet Navy. Water color pencils, Ribbon - 3/8" twill tape. Stamp set - retired - Seaside Sketches.

Well, this is my third entry into the Mojo Monday Sketch. I really do enjoy doing these challenges especially when I needed another Mother's Day card. It also keeps me posting. I was so busy this weekend getting ready for my card class this Thursday that I was unable to scrapbook like I wanted. It is really a challenge when you work a day job and then put together classes and workshops in the evening. But I truly love making cards and scrapbooking and I love sharing my ideas.
This card is put together using all Stampin' Up! products. Card stock - So Saffron, Baja Breeze. Designer Series Paper is from the current Occasion Mini catalogue - called "Walk in the Park". I also used the "Summer Love Rub-ons" in the mini. The ribbon is 5/8 inch striped grosgrain Baja Breeze. The Happy Mother's Day was done on the computer.
All the other products used were stampin' up! products. Cardstock is Pixie Pink, Not quite Navy, Confetti Cream and White. Stamp set was Perfect Princess. I used the Water Color Pencils, Pixie Pink classic ink, 1 3/8 circle punch and the scallop punch.
