Family Tree

Yesterday I went to my husband's aunt and uncle's 60th anniversary celebration. I knew my mother-in-law was giving them a scrapbook, so I thought it would be fun to make some pages for them in advance, so they could just stick pictures when they got them. (Those of you who know me well will find the choice of a scrapbooking gift from me as slightly amusing.)

I made 10 pages (all very fast and easy), but the one I had the most fun with (and spent the most time on) was the last one. One of my new favorite paper packs is Cherry-O (X7123B, $12.95), so I HAD to use it for this page. I also used the Grown With Love stamp set (D1372, $22.95) to make the tree and leaves. Then I used the CTMH Expressives Font CD, Volume I (Z1280, now reduced to $9.95) and typed all the names of the couple's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I cut out their names, edge distressed each one and glued them to the tree. I thought it would be really fun if they took pictures of everyone individually and placed them around the tree.

It would even be really cute as a stand-alone scrapbook page that's mounted in a wall frame. My mother-in-law was looking at it fondly, so I think I might be making one for their anniversary.

Welcome to my card making and stamping blog!

Welcome to my (new) blog! I'm so excited (and a little nervous) that I'm entering the blogging world. I will be posting twice a week...mostly art (because that's what you want to see!) I know there's lots of choices when you are looking for creative ideas, I'd love it if my blog was one of the places you stopped to see some of it.

If you have suggestions - I'd love to hear them. I want to help you create beautiful cards, scrapbook pages, and art projects (embellished objects, like boxes). My goal is to show you artwork, give you ideas on how to use your Close To My Heart supplies, and share with you how my art comes together.

I'd love it if you left a comment...with feedback, suggestions, anything! Thanks for looking!
