embossed copper bookmarks


i was embossing with the cuttlebug when i remembered i had these copper plant tags so...i embossed them and punched a small hole at the end and threaded fibres and/or ribbons. i love how they turned out and thought what a great gift idea.

tags, bags boxes and more


have been looking for this cartridge a long time found it at http://www.scrappingreatdeals.com, arrived yesterday and made all of the bags and boxes. here are the ones i have finished minimally embellished mostly with dollar store finds and recycled ribbons

cuttlebug and angelina fibres

again another attempt at embossing but this time using another technique that involves rubberstamping and a product called angelina fibres. this is a close up to show some of the sparkle of the fibres. here is a link to the use of angelina fibres

white embossed on black


these images are not traditional colours for christmas however once again i was learning the embossing technique on scrap paper when i thought they actually looked okay i decided to go ahead and use the scraps...remember i do not like to waste.

another mistake


image did not cut all the way through so as not to waste any cardstock i just embellished it

vellum over cuttlebug embossing

i love the simplicity and elegance of these cards


think outside the box


found these little pennant flags by martha stewart on sale for $.42 for 39 flags...i looked at them and saw trees

go green at christmas


christmas cards recycled from the cards friends and family received last year






embossed b day cards including envelopes



did i mention i was obsessive because i am not content to just emboss the cards...i now do the envelope flaps!




halloween howls



starting to use glitter, martha stewart's sparkles like jewellery



furry family friends



surprisingly i have been asked to make many cards for pets

failed floral bouquet



this group of cards was created when a plan to make a bouquet of paper flowers for my b-day failed.
