I Have A Gypsy Soul!

Hi folks,

I'm tickled to share that I have joined the talented and creative artists on the Education Team at Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts!



I know, right?  It hasn't quite sunk in yet but my team box arrives today.  *That* should make it a reality!

My first project will be on the GSL Cuts blog on April 10th.  In the meantime, please please please check out the other ET members (you won't believe the company I'm keeping now!).  There's a new inspiration project posted every day!

Cheers,
Susan

Custom Card Album

Hello crafty friends!

I have a great customer who orders cards throughout the year.  For Christmas she came up with the brilliant idea for an album of card fronts.  She wanted to celebrate a new baby in the family as well as that sweet baby's firsts, which happened quickly after she was born.

The album is 3 pages.  I will send a baptism page for the album soon EDIT: the baptism page is included below!  Who knows -- there might even be a 1st birthday page later.  I love this album idea!

This is the front page. Can you see the tag on the right side? It holds a sweet personalized sentiment.



Multi layered

Baby's first Thanksgiving!


The left  side of each page coordinates with the theme.


Baby's first Christmas. This one kind of knocks even my socks off! It was a lot of time consuming work but also the most fun to design and see finished.



The "First" is red Stickles under a layer of Glossy Accents.
It shows better in person!


All Graphic 45 papers, of course. If I could buy up every unused Santa scene page in all the closets across the world, I would. It's perfect.

This baptism page was shipped yesterday!



Thanks for visiting today.

Cheers,
Susan

Custom Cards

Today I have a couple of custom birthday cards to share.

The first one is made with Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary. On both cards I put the recipient's name on the front and a personalized sentiment inside. How special!


The second card was made with a combination of Graphic $5's A Place In Time and Theresa Collins' World Traveler. They worked well together!


Thanks for your visit!

Cheers,
Susan

Greeting Card Flower Series With Graphic 45

Hello!

Last year I had a booth at our local 3rd Friday events. I had quite a few cards on the table, including this series made from Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection.


Raised sewn panels and loads of lace and paper flowers on all the cards as well as a generous sprinkling of Stickles glitter.








Thanks for your visit today! I hope you're having a creative day.

Cheers,
Susan
