Fishies!

Catherine Projects

This might be one of my most favorite scrapbook pages…and I'll confess, I copied it from my dear friend, Deena Boos.

It usesTempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Summer Sun, Green Galore, Only Orange, and Pixie Pink.

One thing that I think makes these pages great is the simple layout, punches of color and those stinkin' cute fish from Just Beachy! 

I made the parentheses (how the heck do you spell that!?) from the Top Note die and Go Go Boots made the letters and numbers!  (exclusive SU dies for the Big Shot).

Just Beachy is only available through June 30…check it out in the mini catalog.

Annother thing that is only available through June 30 is the Last Chance stamp sets, and accessories, see list below.

Instead of working…

Catherine Projects

I've been playing!  My kids are tracked out of school right now, to start back on July 7.  So we've got 4 weeks of fun and sun and we have been taking advantage of it!  Just in case you've been wondering where I am these days…I know I haven't been posting much….

A day at Lake Gaston to celebrate my dad's 60th bday:

We've been at the pool almost everyday, but geesh!  No photos yet!

I'm so glad I have a job that allows me to be flexible for my family.  Thank heavens for SU!

Accordian Fold Flower

Catherine Projects

Here's another fun one to try:
1) Cut card stock or Designer Series paper to 12″ x 3/4″.

2) Score strip every 1/4″ the entire length of the card stock and accordion fold the score lines.

3) Adhere ends of card stock together (Sticky Strip works well). Let dry.

4) Holding the card stock with two hands, twist one edge of the strip into the center as shown to create a flower shape.

5) Adhere a punched circle to the flower center on one or both sides (Pop-Up Glue Dots work well) to hold shape in place.

Try experimenting with different sizes and score intervals to create the desired shape of your flower.

The most wonderful day…

Catherine Projects

of the year!

Kecia arrived this afternoon on my doorstep with guess what…

 NEW CATALOG SNEAK PEEK goodies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We didn't make it past the foyer…then stayed there for a good 30 minutes!!!!!!!!!  YIppeee!

Baby Wipe Technique

Catherine Projects

Have you even tried the Baby Wipe Technique?  I'm thinking this might be a great one to try out for Cards and Projects!  There are a couple ways to do this one:

Squeeze a few drops of ink from your re-inker on a baby wipe; the moistened material absorbs the colors and creates a one-of-a-kind ink pad.

Stamp your image.


Another fun thing to try- gently swipe the wipe over your card stock to create a multicolored background.

If you try this, I'd love to see it!  You can post your own creations in my gallery!

Happy stamping!

Catherine Projects

My friend from Rochester, NY, Brenda sent me this most adorable card using Pun Fun!

I love how she colored in the wool with the Uniball White Gel Pen and colored in his face with the Versamarker.  Thank Ewe, Brenda!  I love it!

Best Ever Cards

Catherine Projects

Last month, we used the Best Ever Simply Scrappin' Kit (162 of the main catalog) for my Scrappers' Express class.  The pages turned out super cute and I had tons of goodies left over to make some cards.

5th Ave

Catherine Projects

5th Avenue Floral…another super simple card from my retreat using Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss.  The Eyelet Border Punch just gives it a bit of extra “oomph”!

Here is that crazy Bird on a Branch set again…I just crack up at that name.  This is another set that I wasn't crazy about in the catalog, but just look at this gorgeous card!  It usese Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turq., Certainly Celery, and that yummy Chocolate Chip Tafetta ribbon.

Kenly Cut

Catherine Projects

Kenly got a haircut today!  I wanted to share a photo with you, because I can't believe how stinkin' CUTE he is!  Rotten, but cute!  I should have taken a photo of him before, but forgot…this is the last photo I have of him from back in March.

Matchbox…to DIE for!

Catherine Die Cutting, Projects

It was love at first sight…the matchbox die!  As soon as I saw this little baby in the mini catalog, I knew I had to have it! This was a cutie little box that I made for my daughter to bring to a birthday party.  Psst!  There's a little wad of money under the piece that says Make a Wish! Another project from my scrapbooking weekend using the Rockabilly Designer Series Paper.  This is 3 matchboxes adhered to each other with some DSP wrapped around it tied with the Satin Ribbon (pg. 17 of the mini catalog). You can order any of these products 24/7 on my website.
