This is a double layered pattern.

SC - February 26th New release.

So it is Saturday for me and I all I want to do is create.. I had done this
card differently, but then changed a few things to make it more Spot On.
I am using a new Digi from The Stamping Chef as well and an image from
QKR store. I think it is a win, win situation.

My image was colored with copic's as always. Really addicted to them. Then
once again I dug into my scrap box and found this cool racing paper. Used
a could of Sizzez punches and some flags from the internet.
Placed a Happy birthday sticker on it with the numbers along the side
to represent a racing sign.. 
I hope you enjoy my project..

Anything but a card

This week I have decided to make anything but
a card..I do allot of scrapbooking but hardly ever
post them..So this week thought I would do something different.
My sister and a friend take turns making our special
monthly calendar pages and this is mine.. I have 
never added a digi to my pages before, but thought 
this would be something different than I have ever done before.
I used Bazzill paper for the back ground and a printed 
calendar from my computer.. My digi is from QKR.
My border at the top is from Martha Stewart punches
and the swirls are from Sizzix.. I think it turned out 
pretty cute..

Hope you enjoy it.

Tammy's Scrapin Corner-Challenge # 49 Handmade Embellishments

This week we were challenged to make a 
At first I thought, hand made well, what can I do with that.
Then I started thinking about cards that I have made
and with my digi it just seemed like the perfect project for me..
Here is my card with the tutorial to follow on  making
the hand made trellis.

Here are the items you will need.
Rectangle Die cutter
Card stock of your color choice.
Die cutting machine
paper cutter and glue.
So to get started.
Here is what you will need.

Cut your die out.
then cut the center out of that.
Depending on how big your retangle is
cut I about 16 1/8th" strips.

Working from the back start laying down the strips going from 
corner to corner, add a drop of glue on the ends of each strip.. I 
liketo use my blue pen which makes placement and amount of 
glue just perfect.
Try to keep the spacing the same. Once all trips are layed down
Start criscrossing the other direction.
and this is your finished project

Well, there I have done my first tutorial..I hope this is very helpful 
for you and I would love to see what you come up with for 
your projects.

Happy Craftin.
