(she told me the name and I've totally forgot it! )Lisa has lots of embellishment elements from embossing folders to embossing powder, punching out for peek a boos throught the card, double-up foam dots, and the list goes on and on. I love the sunny and happy colors she used. Thanks for a perfect, happy card Lisa!

7:33 pm update...I am still having issues with it converting correctly. I will need to take a little lunch time at work tomorrow and try again. Hang in there with me everyone!

I'm out of town but returning home later tonight which I will be fixing the pdf version my top priority.

Nautical Bookmarks KPL Class

P1060125 
Hi Everyone! Our local library's summer reading theme is Explore Reading. They asked me to make something around the theme if possible. The Open Sea stamp set, 123030 wood mount and 123032 clear mount, came right to mind to fit into their theme! While anyone can sign up for class, it's geared towards lower elementary aged youth. At any age, who doesn't have fun using the Big Shot! 113439 . Two Tags Bigz Die 115954 was used to make the bookmark. This is a somewhat new die for me and I have used it multiple times already!

I used the same color tones as in my previous cards made with this set as it just seems to be the perfect nautical combination. Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. Other elements in the bookmarks Cherry Cobbler/White Bakers Twine 123125 and Linen Thread 104199.

Here's another random share about this set! P1060120
I made a little map element that one could use in a scrapbook page or hand delivered card.

The bookmark class is next week on the 29th at Kendallville Public Library.

Hi Everyone! Our theme this month..anything but a flower! :) And Lisa told us about an embossing technique that we all used somewhere on the card. Above is Vicki's card featuring the Motorcycle stamp that was in last year's Summer Mini. P1060118 Great image for masculine cards. Here's a photo that really catches the light showing the embossing.
