The Circus is in town!

Hey everybody and the circus is in town and today I want to share a mini album/card that I saw on You Tube. I believe the card was made by Gloria Stengel. I tried to find it again on You Tube but it is not listed, not sure if I have the correct name of the card. It was called a mini album in one place and a card in another.  If anyone knows the path to tutorial please feel free to share it.   Gloria used Graphic 45 Place in Time.  And she really embellished it beautifully.  I used Graphic 45 LeCirc to do a demo card.  It turned out pretty good for demo.  The border is my favorite from Cheery Lynn Designs  the Anastasia Border.  My CS is from Michael's Recollection - smooth black.   I may try it again later on.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me comment to let me know what you think. 

I put mini  clear Velcro dots in the inside cover to keep it closed.

I added a pocket (that is just some old tag I had laying around).

Wedding Projects

Hey Y'all,
     A big hot Texas howdy!  It is hotter than blue blazes today!  But never mind about that...on with the show and tell.  First, I made a decision to do the "Big Chop"!  It was not as bad as I thought it would be.  I will try to change my profile photo so yins' can check it out; leave a comment and tell me what you think.  I also want to share my finished wedding project that I mentioned a few post back.  I was commissioned by a very good friend of mine Cheryl, who's son got married a about 3wks ago.  A special thank you to Tre and Lisa for allowing me to have a small part in your special day.   I made some table tents for the wedding tables and two wedding rehearsal table cards for the bride and groom.  I did two collar cards (see July post).  They turned out great! (if I do say so myself... an I do-lol).  Just kidding but I was pleased with the way they turned out.   I used Pion Design's From My Heart II paper collection the sheet names are "Roses" and "Bottom of My Heart".  I used Hobby Lobby cream CS for the base and the mat CS is Bazzill, the colour is call "Arroyo".  Other supplies were Tim Holtz and Spellbinder dies.  I printed the message using my computer.  I know I said I would probably not make that collar card again but I have to say... It actually went faster making them the second time.  I think it was because I was so familiar with the process.  The table tents were even easier- cream CS, Spellbinder 5x7 Elegent Labels Four,  and the Paper Studios Blanc Boutique Paper Pack with Pearl Finish (AWESOME)!!! this is one of those paper packs that I highly recommend.  It is $14.99 regular price but of course I went on a day when it was fifty percent off.     Well, I hope you enjoy the projects; have a great week!
