Anniversary Card

I've just returned from spending a week at my parents house and spending time with my family.  So now that I'm back, it's time to get back into a routine. (especially since school will be starting in two weeks... yikes!)  Today, I'm sharing a card I made for my sister's wedding anniversary.

The patterened papers are from Webster's Pages.  I have a ton of 6x6 papers from them. So I cut them and layered them to make this 5x7 card. 
The ribbon is from Webster's Pages also.
The "Celebrate" stamp is from the Dollar Bin at Michael's. 
The "Happy Anniversary" stamp is from Hero Arts. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you're having a fabulously crafty week.

Grow Grow Grow

Here's another layout for my sister's album. This time I did use DCWV papers and the DCWV July Stack-a-holic Challenge layout.  So now I can enter in the challenge.

My papers are from the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack.
I cut the words using the Cricut Craft Room Basics letters that I welded together.
The glittered flower is part of one of the patterned papers in the stack. I just fussy cut it out.
I added some pearl flourishes and called it a day. : )

I've been bad about getting posts up on the blog.  I've been so busy with this album.  I've made 24 pages so far and have hardly shown anything here.   Having 3 little kids keeps me busy and time gets away from me.   I'll try to get some more posted soon. 

Hope you have a blessed day.

What do you remember?

So to continue with my sister's 50th birthday scrapbook, today's layout is one I did using the July DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge sketch. (I can't use this as an entry because I didn't use DCWV papers - need to do another layout to enter but wanted to share this layout with you all.)

Here's my layout:

I used the Habitat Collection (Recollections) for my papers. 
The butterfly and little flower are from DCWV Street Lace Chipboard set.
The year numbers are from Cloud 9 Designs.

I did something a little different with this page.
As you can see at the top of the page is a question, "What do you remember of 1983?"
If you pull that tab up, you get a card  to write down memories of the year as shown below.

Since I am making this album for my sister and have limited pictures and memories, I thought it would be great if she could jot down a few memories after she receives the book to make it more complete.

This is a picture of the pocket I made on the back of the page to hold the card.

I'm hoping she thinks this is a good idea. LOL. If not, I can easily remove the card and it doesn't take anything away from the page itself. 

Hope you are all off to a wonderful crafting start to your week.

God Bless.
