15 Minute Project

I made this quick window card in about 15 minutes start to finish.  The design part was easy.  I used Freshly Picked for the card base (Frames Flower1) and the shift (Frames Flower1) welded together to form the card.  I then used Gypsy Wanderings phrase (Present) for the word "gift". The phrase was welded to the window making sure the phrase touches all 4 edges of the window.  The patterned paper is a DCWV stack and the gold paper was from Michael's.  I ran the phrase through my cuttlebug using the swirls folder.   I chalked the flowers on the inside of the card.  This technique adds interest to the front of the card as well as the inside.  Start to finish this project was about 15 minutes.  Try to create your window card.

Just Photos of my Graduation Album Accents

 Adventurer bird cut a 4 inches. I folded the map to add a realistic feel. I used stickles and flocking on the wings add a little whimsy.

Finally Made Graduation Project

I finally finished the graduation project for my niece.  I made an album using 3 Birds on Parade, a banner using Letter Envy and a tri-fold card using Recess.  The bird icons are cut at 4 inches.  I added stickles accents and brads to the birds.  I made a total of 6 birds but this is my favorite.  I made it a little lager, 6 inches.  I used buttons for the eyes which gives this "girl" an owl look. The Banner was cut at 10 inches with letters cut at 8 inches.  I had to do some work with my Gypsy to make sure the letters fit the banner.  The images for the card were cut at about 3 inches.
