Sequoia 6x6 Wedding Card

A few weeks ago we had the honor of attending a wedding just outside of Sequoia National Park in Three Rivers, CA. Most of the elements from the wedding card were recycled from the wedding invitation.

Stick It Down - September 2-Page Layout

Several weeks ago we went to San Antonio, Texas for the first time. I thought these pictures would work well on a 2-page layout for Stick It Down . A good part of our trip included a 5-hour bike tour of the Missions including the Alamo. Highly recommended and super impressed with the City.

My Creative Scrapbook - July

My husband's grand niece and grand nephew flew to CA today all by themselves (aka "unaccompanied minors"). As you can see from their mom's FB post they were in tears until they got to visit the SWA cockpit. The inspiration for this page came from my favorite sketch artist Laura Whitaker over at My Creative Scrapbook.

I made this card for my step-father after seeing something similar on Pinterest. He's an outdoorsy kind of guy so I thought the theme was well suited for him.

Travelers Notebook - Cocoa Daisy

Since June of last year I've been keeping a monthly Travelers Notebook (aka Daisy Dori) which I receive monthly from Cocoa Daisy. While it can sometimes be a burden to keep up to date, the designs and the embellishments are so cute that you can't let them go to waste.

Easter - Butterfly Variations

I made these three cards using the exact same techniques, just different colors. I started by clear embossing the flower images on water color paper. I then washed each card with a mixture of colors. The butterfly was stamped on vellum and colored on the back with markers.
