With my bad eyes I had to be near my ott light to cut the flowers on the last card as they was tiny but these scissors did a wonderful on the cutting. I sure do love them very much and wondered where was I without them before?? DUH!!! trying to cut things out without them and messing up. lol. Well, if you do not have them then you need to hop on over to Dixie's stampin up website and order you some. just click on site on the right side of my blog.

Dancing Ballerina

This card was done for a 1-1 swap in Rubberstampchat. it was done for Amercian Dance. The stamps i used is from TAC. The hardest part is cutting the flowers that is between the girl and the slippers as it is so small for my eyes but i had to give it a try and get really close to the light to do it. Thanks to my new scissors from stampin up that gets really close. Love them . Thanks Dixie. I will have to post about them next time and show you all what I am talking about because if you do not have these scissors then you need to get them. boy, are they great for these tiny cuts you need get into too. black ink used is ancient page. pattern paper used is diecutswithaview.

Sweet Chicks

These stamps are from TAC and i used markers to colors these in right on the stamps themselves. Then i took a yellow ink pad and went around the edges. I also took 4 square brads. Then I a scrap piece of lemon yellow card stock for behind but i didn't want it to go all the way as i want it just about half. then I stamped sentiment which is from TAC also and from the set also. and took ancient page coal black ink and went around the sentiment and the CS. I made a bow and used a glue dot mini. The patter paper is from diecutswithaview paper stack.

Yummy Apple

The stamp, tag, scallop circle and circle, and paper piercer are all from stampin up. The markers I used are from Impress and stampin up, Impress is from TAC. The leaf paper is a scrap that I used from my scrap basket.I used foam tape to lift the tag and the scallop on the card also.

Recycled Album from CD's from the mail

here is an album that I made from cd's that you get from those cd's you get in the mail. instead of throwing them away i saved them. I have a drawer full of them. I made this album because this lady here where I live at here in cortview village was doing recycling project. she said she needed 2 projects made from recycled materials. as you can see from another post on here i did make a lamb from a recycled tissue box,pudding cup, tissue paper rolls. Now this album from the cd's. the paper on here is from stamping up called bella blue. I used the sticky strips also from stampin up. yes, celia your favorite, LOL, sticky strips the red liner tape you love so well, NOT!!! LOL> Plus i added buttons in blue and white on all the pages glue dots but the back page. I use paper flowers on the front of the album and copper letter stickers that spell album which are from dollar general. the ribbon is stampin up and is retired.i used the cropadile to punch the holes in the cds and it punches the holes like butter in them. so sweet. this thursday i will turn it into beverly as she has the lamb already. so i will let you know how things turn out.
