Adventure Awaits

Autumn is my favorite season.
I live for long walks on those cool, clear days! 
Then there is the back-to-school, harvest, pumpkin everything...
yep, it's my favorite!
~ Adventure Awaits ~
I used Kreaxions punches and circle cutter to recreate that feel for this card.
For the sunshine I used Punch # 902 around the edge of a 5in circle. I connected the punched designs with a craft knife. I cut the resulting doily and inked the edges. 
The clouds started with a 4in circle and Punch #920. I layered them at the top edge of the card and under the sun.

All The Best

Today's project is a Mason Jar card.
~ Wishing You All The Best ~
To make this card I stamped the mason jar twice. 
Once on the card front and a second time, on green paper.
With a bit of work with my craft knife I had second dimension for my card. I used dimensional adhesive to pop it up. I over stamped when I was adding the dandelion wishes so I tied on a twine bow and called it good.

Stamps:CTMH, Little Yellow Bicycle
Alpha Stamps:Mason Row Pegs
Glitter Glue:Ranger
Border Punch:Kreaxions #902

Not Forgot

Today's project is a mini-album to commemorate those fur babies that have gone over the rainbow bridge.
~ Not Forgot ~
For this project I began with the Chipboard Frame from Gina's Designs.

I spread glitter paste across the surface. Before that dried I added glue and a dusting of large glitter.

For the album I cut 5.75" circles from
Black and White Thermal Animal Cardstock
Rosy Diamond Cardstock

Pink Zebra Glitter Cardstock

Black and White Glitter Paws Cardstock
Pink Glittered Leopard Cardstock

I adhered the circles back to back and added washi tape around the edge.
For the hinge I punched 8 circles, 1.25" in diameter and glued them back to back.
I used brads to attach the circles between the pages.
For the the outer hinge I punched a couple 2" circle and glued them back to back. I used brads to attach the large circle to the first and last pages.
To complete the project I I die-cut a butterfly from the Khaki Glitter Cardstock, and rolled it through a paper crimper.
 I put a touch of glitter paste on the wing tips and dew drops down the middle.
To finish the album I adhered the frame to the front page then added the butterfly.
This album was easy to assemble with all the animal motif cardstock options from The Robin's Nest. Now I have a gift on hand to cheer a friend who has had to say goodbye to a four legged companion.
