December Wedding

I love weddings!
Here's a card I made for a wedding we're going to in L.A.

all justjohanna stamps
"Congratulations" sentiment handwritten

twinkle stickers by amuse, glitter, gelly roll pen, JuidiKins' Diamond Glaze and SU! Real Red

I think Jim Brickman and weddings go hand-in-hand. And just because I'm thinking of weddings, here's "Beautiful" by Jim Brickman and Wayne Brady.

Tah Dah!

I'm having a lot of fun with justjohanna's holiday stamps! This is Polo, the ragdoll reindeer, one of my favorites!

Recently, I've seen a lot of felt and velvet used on scrapbook pages and cards. For this card, I used Fun Flock to achieve a similar look and feel of velvet.

Osmonds on Oprah

Okay, I may be dating myself but a long long time ago, my sister and I would watch the Donny and Marie show every week. Here's a short video of the Osmond brothers from Oprah's show. {And I still think Donny's cute!} Enjoy!

Another card using justjohanna holiday stamps.

Got Mojo?

Julee, at Poetic Artistry, holds a weekly Mojo Monday challenge. Here's my take on her Mojo Monday Challenge #10, using justjohanna's holiday stamps.

I'm loving the new justjohanna holiday stamps!
I used Moon Glow to add sparkle in these pears.

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me.....

antique faire

We went to the Alameda Antiques & Collectibles Faire this morning. Fun! We did a whole lot of walking. Vendors can only sell items that are 20 years old or older. Here are a few items I found.

Can't wait to use these! Over 25 yards of ribbon and lace for $6.50! One of the packages wasn't even open and it still had the original label on it, "16 yards for twenty-five cents".

I found these glass jars, circa 1930's. The seller had a surplus of glass containers and was selling them at a really great price. I've been looking for clear glass containers to store some of my wood mounted stamps and small ink pads.

cards for friends

It's hard to believe that it's November because the weather outside is amazing. It's 73 degrees! Here are cards my sister and I made today.

I purchased these stamps at a stamp show I attended a couple of years ago.
Floral Ding Bats stamp set by TAC
Kettle Copper embossing powder by Stampamania
adhesive crystals by Hero Arts

Sweet Tweet stamp set by TAC (this set is retiring with the current catalog) and Embellishment Paper by Making Memories, Cosmopolitan Collection

Tomorrow we're going to Antiques by the Bay. I've never been to it before but I've heard lots of good things about it. Thanks for stopping by!

The only people to get even with are those who have helped you.-Anonymous

scrapbook page

I made a 6x6 scrapbook page of our dog, Yoshi. We got him 2 years ago when he was just 8 weeks old. He's been such a great addition to our family and is just a joy to be with.

All justjohanna stamps. See you on my next post.
