I made this necklace. I bought the Celtic knot pendant which has blue/green colors in it. Then I looked for similar blue and green beads to make the double-strand necklace out of.

Birthday card with rosette

This is a 6x6 card. Rosettes are all the rage in papercrafts these days. I tried my hand at this one. The card is made with Club Scrap's Common Threads kit. Under the rosette I put a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle; I added glitter to it for some sparkle.

Birthday card

Here's a birthday card for a 14-year old boy. He loves the color orange - he's a Syracuse Orangemen fan. This design comes from a sketch challenge on Club Scrap. Club Scrap Card Sketch Challenge
The blue and orange paper comes from Club Scrap's Artifacts kit, the gray is from a very old kit called Extra, Extra. I used two different embossing folders on the orange paper and swiped a little white ink across the raised paper. I used a gear stamp from a Club Scrap kit called Time and Space and embossed that in black ink around the edge of the gray card base. It looked too plain without something on it. The number 14 is die cut from a Sizzix set that my sister just gave me for Christmas. Great number set! I like the sentiment I stamped inside (also from Club Scrap) which says, "Remember, you'll be this age for only one year, but you'll be AWESOME forever." Great sentiment for a teenager.

Baby Boy

I made a baby boy card for a friend who had a new baby born into her family.
Cardstock is SU. Stamp set is SU, A New Little Someone. Striped paper, unknown.
Had some trouble with the rub-on letters for Welcome. Tried it 3 times, and this was the best I could get.
