Alright, I know I'm a Stampin Up demo but even I fall victim to using non-Stampin Up items. This being done so with this card and the next three cards after this. Does anyone remember what a Sizzix die cut machine is? I had mine buried in a closet for the last two or three years. Since felt happens to be the new cool thing to use I wanted to incorporate it onto my cards and layouts. Hmmm.... How could I do this I asked myself? A few days ago I opened the hall closet and there in all it's glory was my die cut machine, sitting there as unused as the day I bought it, well maybe I did use it once or twice. I hadn't bought very many die cuts for it so my natural inclination was to run down to Michael's to see what I could find. Low and behold I found a die cut that cuts three different flowers that can be used seperately or layered on top of each other. So I went die cut crazy. I was in a frenzy when I got home and started using the machine like I had never used it before. I cut so many felt flowers that I had to put them in a separate container. After I had finished cutting up all my felt it was my natural inclination to use what I had of course so these are cards I came up with. The ribbon is also non-Stampin Up ribbon but I couldn't resist! I used the Celebrate Everything stamp set. So if you have a die cutter that has been collecting dust... by all means bring it into the light of day and use it! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts! If you can't really read the title that well it says A Father's love... Priceless. This is a layout from my first annual scrap camp. I struggle trying to come up with pages that are more masculine looking, to the disappointment of my boys, they don't want their pictures on flowery layouts all the time! So I used the Loads of Love stamp set.
This was a stamp club project. Yes it is a flowery layout but don't you just love the colors? I used Only Orange with Blush Blossom cardstock for the photo mats. Oh yeah... did I forget to tell you I love ribbon! Just thought I'd mention it again, just in case you forgot. I started to take the pictures of the double page layouts side by side but found it a bit easier to do it this way. I took the words for the title, from a song: These are the moments, I thank God that I'm alive, These are the moments, I'll remember all my life. I found all I've waited for and I could not ask for more. I don't exactly know what the song title is or the name of the singer, but I love the song! If I get stuck for titles for a layout, I'll listen to the radio and come up with something that way. In this case I thought the song was appropriate for a scrapbook page.
