Stampbook Saturday

Hey everyone and welcome to this week's Stampbook Saturday!! This is my first time helping out with this, and I gotta tell you, it was a TON of fun!! In fact, I was so excited, and I knew EXACTLY what picture I wanted to use, so I spent almost an hour trying to locate it!!LOL!! Guess I still have some organizing to do, huh?
Before I get into what my page is all about, here is some info on just what a stampbook page is!!

What is a Stampbook Page? A Stampbook Page is a scrapbook page created using stamps and inspired by a card. Each week I create a new Stampbook Page to give you ideas on how to use your stamps in a new way and hopefully inspire you to catch up on those family photos that you've been meaning to scrapbook ;)

So, my inspiration piece was this SUPER gorgeous card made by my fabulous friend, Jodi. Jodi has been one of the most amazing friends I have met through stamping, and although we don't get to talk as much as we used to, I still love her to pieces!! I knew I wanted to use the Fairy Good Day set for my page, seeing as how I had my heart set on using this picture, so I looked in the TSG gallery, and found her card, and was instantly inspired.

So, you probably want to know a little bit about the picture, right? Well, it was taken December of 1999, right before Christmas. My mom and late stepfather paid for my siblings and I, and my cousin Mandy(in the middle), to all go to Disney World for a Christmas present....BEST GIFT EVER!! Not only do I LOVE Disney World, it was the Millennium celebration and everything was just spectacular. On this particular day, my two sisters, cousin, and I all went into one of the stores, and in true to us fashion, decided to have a little fun. My picture was taken of my girls wearing their tiaras, and holding their wands.....HAHAHAHAHA!!! I bet I get into so much trouble if they see I posted this.....hehehehe.

I used SU's Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, and Walk in the Park DP. My images were stamped on MFT Perfect Panels, and then colored with my Copics. My ribbon is from SU, as well.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my page and were inspired to make one of your own!! There is no better way to preserve a memory, in my opinion!!

Crazy 4 Challenges- Pockets!!

Hey everyone!! It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! This week's challenge(C4C37) was to make a card using a pocket. It could either be a pocket image, and image with a pocket on it, an actual pocket card, pocket paper...just as long as it had a pocket.

For my card, I used the pocket from an old SU set, Pocket Fun. I haven't used an SU stamp in FOREVER!! My flowers are from the Verve Stamps set, Feel the Sun. I stamped the flowers on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then colored them with my Copics. I then cut them out and added them to the top of my pocket. I paper pieced the pocket using some Bella Rose DP. I did a ton of piercing, used a bunch of Michael's brads, added some SU ribbon, and made my sentiment panel using SU punches.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
