A Year In Review 2011

Karin from With an "i" for Paper has put together a Year In Review Blog Hop.  Here are my 12 favorites for this year, chosen either by emotions or new techniques learned.  I have so many favorites...this was really hard for me!  



A New Chapter, This was the first card posted to my blog and it was given to my husband for our 15yr wedding anniversary.

Baby Shower Card for a friend.  One of my most requested cards for shower/party invitations.

Mother's Day, given to my mom for Mother's day.

Happy Birthday Ajay, this is my son's favorite card!  

Happy Birthday Babe, an easel card given to my husband for his birthday.  

Case Study 53, I just love the color combo on this.


Every Cloud Has Silver Lining, this card was featured on Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker blog in September! 

Anniversary Card for my parents using traditional embossed resist technique learned from Inspiration Showcase.

Happy Birthday Sumitra, birthday card for my daughter who plays volleyball.  

Thank You, This card made my favorites because...I just love it!  :)

Congrats Wedding, for my cousin's wedding.

Season's Greetings, My favorite from the Lost and Found Christmas collection.

This was definitely a fun trip down memory lane!  Challenging as well...

Happy Holidays...

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and spent some quality time with family and friends!  

Here is holiday card that was inspired by Karen's card from Altered Scrapbooking using an old sketch (#29) from Cas-ual Fridays.  I took it a step further by cutting out four more snowmen and adhered them with pop dots for some dimension.    

DP is from MME Wonderful Winter paper stack and sentiment is from PTI's Stylish Sentiment; Holidays. 

Christmas Joy & Cheer

I can't get enough of MME Lost and Found Christmas collection!  Here is another quick card...still keeping my holiday cards simple.  :)

Sentiment from PTI's Stylish Sentiment stamp set.  Added a bow and some rhinestones and this card was done!!!  :)

MME Merry Christmas 2

Here is another quick and super simple card using MME Lost and Found Christmas collection.  

This card is very clean and simple!  Just the way holiday cards are supposed to be!  :)

MME Merry Christmas

Another quick and simple holiday card using MME Lost and Found Christmas collection.


I inked the edges of the card base and the tag, adhered the ribbon, added glitter to the background paper to mimic the tag...and this card was done!  :)  Very simple...

MME Happy Holidays

Here is another card that was made using MME Lost and Found Christmas paper.  

There wasn't much to do on this card.  I simply cut around the design on the paper, inked the edges, added 3 red rhinestones to the top right hand corner and adhered it to PTI dark chocolate cardstock...and rounded the top corners!  :)

I will enter this card for the current Jay Gee's challenge:



MME Season's Greetings 1

Here is another holiday card that I created using MME Lost and Found Christmas papers.  I am in love with this collection, in fact it was really hard for me to cut this paper. I made four cards from one sheet of 12x12 paper.  Will post the others later...still have to photograph them. 

Sentiment from PTI, Stylish Sentiment; Holiday and of course, red rhinestones for that Christmas bling!  :)

Season's Greetings!

Here is a holiday card that I made using some very old supplies.  This card truly signifies my "using up my stash" determination for this year's holiday cards.  The silver embossing powder is from a 2002 Stampin Up order and the silver shimmer paper is left over from making a friend's wedding program 9 years ago!  I always buy extra paper "just in case" something happens...I seem to have a lot of that!  :)

Sentiment is from PTI, Stylish Sentiment and I just couldn't resist adding the gems! :)
