Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been here for a while but I have been having a good time with my grand kids... they LOVE to go in the pool & it's been so hot here I have been lovin' it too :) I have also been youtubing :) I have meet so many new friends. You can find me at sgit56 on youtube.. I have put up a few videos.. so fun :) Here is a card I colored with my new Prismacolor pencils.. I really love them, so much easier than Copics.. for some reason I just could not get the shading and stuff right. I made the border strip, some Recollections flowers & a cute button..
I got this stamp at the last Scrapbook Convention.. I used all scraps..
This is the inside.. I used Spellbinders and a Fiskars punch..
Thanks for stopping by.. hugs... Jen

Hi Friends... what is it with me and Paris ???? I just love anything that has the Eiffel Tower on it or has anything to do with Paris.. maybe it's the black & pink that is always associated with it.. who knows :) This was made from all scraps.. I used a EK Success punch, a Eiffel tower stamp that I cut out and put on some Martha Stewart "white gold" glitter.. "Ooh La La" stamp from Studio G... the little pink and white trim I found at the antique mall.. flowers are Petaloo.. I have been having a good time altering a couple of wood boxes from the dollar store, and making a smash book... SO FUN.. no rules just do what you want and then when finished just smash stuff into the book, like, things your kids made, pictures from magazines you want for inspiration... tickets... pictures... recipes... journaling... anything you want... watch for a video on my youtube channel (sgit56)... Well, enjoy the rest of your week... hugs... Jen

Hi friends... hope everyone had a good week. The weather here was perfect so I spent a lot of time outside with my kids (dogs:) we had the sod put in, now I just need to do the rest.. and I can't wait... I really love going to the nursery and picking out the flowers and shrubs... but I leave the planting to my husband :) Anyway here is a cute card I made... I really wanted to use red.. the background paper is from Sassafrass Lass.. I used a rose stamp from Inkadinkadoo and stamped it in red all over the paper. I edged the sentiment ( from Michael's dollar bin ) with a Martha punch.. I cut out the mat using a template from Kiwi Lane Designs and the bracket across the top is Spellbinders "Elegant Posts" ... ribbon and flower are from my stash... And I just LOVE the little napkin the card is laying on... you can take it to a picnic and it comes with ants... so cute :) Well, enjoy the rest of your day.. hugs.. Jen

Happy Wednesday !! I'm really enjoying this week, some people call it "June gloom" but I love it :) about 72 here with a cool breeze and a little overcast... Perfect... I'm dreading the 100 degree days, that's when I stay in with the air on !! Here is a card I made using a little bit of fabric ( the patterned strip in the back of the envelope ) I also used a little doily and envelope I cut out on the Cricut. The orange felt flower and leaves are a die from Papertrey Ink...
I Inked everything with Ranger " Vintage Photo".. the sentiment on the tag is from two different stamp sets, both from Michael's dollar bin ..
We are in the process of finishing the landscaping in our yard, I will share the photos with you when it's done... I cant wait :) Hope you are all having a good week... catch ya later... Jen
