A couple of Christmas Layouts for a change

Well,this is what I've been working on lately. Scrapbook layouts for my Tops Group. They've asked me if I willing to redo the old albums and do the pics which they have tons of as I feel like it. Of course I couldn't say no,so when I feel up to it,I play with that. The old albums are hard to redo cause the pics we're cut around each person almost with squiggly scissors,some are a mess.
I'll try to do my best! It's fun though.

So here are some of last yr's xmas dinner. Get to use old stickers and embellies which I'll never use. It's for a great cause!!
Have a super tuesday!

Pink Butterfly Tree

I just had to show you my Butterfly Xmas Tree!
I really like how it turned out! I embossed the folder on some silver paper than sponged some pink pigment ink on it,added 2 diff size pearls here and there and some pink sissix butterfly die cuts from SU thanks to CHRIS,Thank you so much! I use them alot as you will see. Mounted the silver on black and the black on pink!
Tada,I think it's Beautiful!
Might make more of this diff colors.

Bye again!!!!


Last night's SU class

Here's a punched up snowman card. Isn't he cute,he's all made with circles,ovals and punches. We also used what do you call that paper...where we embossed the snowflakes,anyways and for the for the snow we used embossing powder for the glitter.
I love snowmen~!!

And we made this kleenex box...it's too bad she didn't have a border embosser with snowflakes,we used one with flowers,but it doesnt' match the snowflakes at the bottom.

But it's still really nice!

So short and sweet post,have a great evening and tomorrow's
friday already!

Hi everyone!

This is a card I made yesterday afternoon when I said I was off to play. This is what came out. I like how it turned out.
The lamp post image is an Inkadinkado stamp I got at Michael's and the sentiment is SU Holiday Coll.
I just embossed the card base,used MS border punch for the inside of the card and sponged all the sides and stamped with
bordering blue.

I did my DH's xmas shopping today. I hope he'll be happy!
Except for one gift that I had to order,but it should be in next week,so plenty of time. He's so hard to buy for cause he says he doesn't need anything,but I did get something for his truck
so I know he will be happy with that.

So I leave you with this card and I'm off to bed maybe...

Well it's already wednesday! Another month to
Christmas Eve...YIKES!!!!!!!!
Don't you just love this SU set from last year. The card will be another to add to my Xmas stack.
We made it last thursday at class and I really like how it turned out.

So last night was my Tops meeting which I always attend,I'm sure the pounds would come back on if I didn't go. It's a very wonderful weight loss support group. After my transplant I lost 17 pounds which I kept off since. So I lowered my goal of 10 pounds and still am good with all that.
So last night,I was telling the girls,I guess the old liver was so enlarged,it weighed over 10 pounds.
We had a good laugh!

Posted really early cause I couldn't sleep,that's a good thing I guess.
Have a super duper day!


Happy Holidays!

Another Holiday card. Simple,easy,peasy!
This is one of the cards from last thursday also.
All SU products of course,not much to say about it.

I am migraine free today! Hip Hip Hooray!
So I'm off to play!
Hey that rhymes,hehe!

Who wants my migraine??

This will be a short post,been feeling kinda yucky! Went to bed with a massive migraine last night and in the middle of the night I got very nauses and was sick after taking my pills. I tried to not be sick,cause they say if I throw up less than 1/2 an hour after taking them,I should take them again. Well it was 22 minutes,and I didn't see any pills go through. So for this time,I didn't take them again. My migraine isn't as bad now,but still a bad headache. Oh well,I'll just try and sleep it off.

On to the card...it's one we made at our SU stamp class last thursday. I didn't do a nice job cutting the wh cs,but it turned out pretty good anyways.

Now I'm off to relax my head and try to get rid of it,the headadche not the head,lol!

Another Holiday Card

It's cold but sunny! The snow is here to stay! So with snowflakes in mind,I made another easy peasy card.
Used some a punch for the sentiment mounted on a doily,
mounted on a nestie which is over all the scrap papers and
added some snowflakes here and there.

Been playing with my Big Shot,hehe,I made some flowers and a milk carton which I can't figure out how to paste,lol.
I'll figure it out when i have more patience. I just came back from Michael's cause I had a balance on a gift card,and I bought a sissix xmas lights die cut,so I'll have to try that one now. Kids and their toys,hehe!

Have a wonderful day!

Easy Peasy Card

Happy Friday my friends!

Well,last night was SU class night,although this isn't a card we made there. I did make this card at home yesterday
afternoon. It's a simple card with the traditional xmas colors and I used a MS doily mounted on a plain circle. The tree stamp is from the Jolliest Time set (SU). Easy Peasy!

I got my BIG SHOT and some dies,so I'm off to play!!!!!
Hope you have a super weekend and I'll show you some cards we made last night,tomorrow!
See ya later!!


Rudolph again..

Good Day everyone,Friday that is! ALREADY!!!!
The weeks are going wayyyyyy too fast,aren't they!
Oh well,I'll just have to try and get more done in a day or
else I won't be ready.

Similar card to yesterday's card isn't it. Thought I'd make a couple while I had my cricut out. Used the same colors and dp,but different look.

I went to my class last night,so will have some cards to post. And...I got my Big Shot and some templates so I'll def. will have to play with that this weekend! Can't wait!

We finally got some snow yesterday and I think it's here to stay. Well,we can't complain cause usually it's here at the end of October.

Couldn't sleep at 2am,so here I am posting and blurfing.
Great time to do that and it'll give me more time to play today,hehe! After I go back to bed that is.
So have a super duper weekend!

Here comes Rudolph!

I made a fast Xmas card. Using scraps and made Rudolph with the Cricut,he's kinda cute.
The sentiment is from SU Frosty set and I used the MS icicle border punch.

I hadn't posted in awhile,been doing some cleaning,so then I rest. I've also been working on redoing the Tops photo album,it's a hard job cause whoever worked on it (since 1983)cut out pics in all these weird shapes so it makes it hard to work with. But I manage to make it somehow purty!!!

Did have a really good day yesterday though. Went for an hour walk with 2 of my girlfriends,so
that was really nice. Came home and made 2 cards.

Tonight,I'm going to SU xmas card night,we're making 5 different cards,so can't wait to see what I'm going to bring home. And oh,I get my Big Shot order tonight...just like xmas!!!!

Have a good rest of the day,I'm off to play

Let it snow,Let it snow,Let it snow...

No snow yet??? I can't believe we still have above 0 temperatures here in the North! But it's ok,we'll take the beautiful weather.

My card today is one we made the other night at SU class.
I added some metal snowflake brads when I got home. I hoard so much stuff,I've had them for a couple of years,so time to use them. We popped up the snowman's head and aren't those little googlie eyes cute,the snowflake punch and scallop punch are SU.
I was able to enter it in the Winter Wonderland Challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenge,lots of beautiful cards to check out over there.

Have a super weekend all! Until next time!

Sparkly & Bright!

Dancing Santas...is the card we made last night at my SU class. We used the Stampamajig to line up the Santas,as you see,I need practise with it.

But I will def use the one I bought months ago and haven't used it. I'm so bad!!!

So the weekend is upon us once again. I've been really tired again so don't know what's going on.
I don't see my dr. until Dec 1st,so until then,I putt putt along taking it easy.

But I do have a long project for Tops,they have asked me to go through all the old pics and make a scrap album. That'll be interesting!

Have a terrific rest of the day!

Tuesday, November 9, 2010


I'm done,all 30 of them! If you count them,there
are 29 on the pic,but one is drying up.
I will never mass produce something with glitter again! But I'm sure my Tops friends will enjoy them. I'm even ahead,our Xmas Dinner is Dec 14th. So I'm ahead,woohoo!

Now I can move on to diff things. My shakes are 95% gone which means I can color again.

It is amazing how my new liver is working,I Thank My Donor and his or her Family more than once a day I tell you! For the little stretching inside pain that I have,it is a very small price to pay. Thank You!

I have so many cards to make and not enough time!!!! Thank You cards,B'day cards,Xmas cards,Thinking of you cards....I'll just have to work more and take it one day at a time!

Easy Peasy Card

Hello friends! Hope you all had a terrific weekend! We sure did,went to see 3 hockey games of 2 of our great nephews. One of them is 13 and the other is 8 yrs old. So it's so nice to see them work so hard. It was great!
It's monday again,already a week into the month,
gee the time just flies by doesnt it.

Well my card for today is another simple easy peasy one. I used a Paisley CB in night of navy on top of the yellow cardbase,used a framed scrap in white to create the sentiment in a frame. The sentiment is SU Well Scripted and added some punched flowers and cut out a blue flower from an old gift bag that had it's days. So I cut out what was still good out of it. I like to recycle. Also added some bling,and voila!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I'm going to a Baby Shower...

Hope you are all having a wonderful week! Weekend
is upon us soon once again.

Well,I made my Baby Shower card as I had said.I used The Flourishes set of Rock a bye baby.
Used CB dots folder on the cardbase,the pink and wh & blue dp.For the inside of the card I popped up the baby rattle & bottle so the easel card could stand up.
Added some stars and used some MS punches.

Hope the Mom to be will like it. I like how it turned out.

Have a super thursday! I've been awake since 5 am,
so I guess I'll have to have a snooze this afternoon.
Oh worked on my 30 xmas cards last night at Paulette's,she even helped me color some of my images. Next big project like that,I will defenitely make diff design and images. It's getting boring 30 of the same. Oh well,live and learn,lol!


It's a good good day!

Did you see the Beautiful Butterfly at the top of my blog? In green (my fav color). Allison set it up for me,Oh I'm so happy! She's a genius! Thanks girl!

I had made this photo holder at one of our SU classes and for some strange reason never posted it. I must of had lots of material to post back then and was saving this project for a rainy day.

Well that was good,cause today I needed something to post,so this came in handy! It was fun to make and didn't take that long either. When I see all you great bloggers creating these fabulous diff projects,I always get so overwhelmed thinking,I can't do that!

Now I am willing to try anything,so I'm going to put that in my future plans,to try diff projects,if I fail,I will try until I succeed!!

Here is the inside.I think I'll add a sentiment on the inside too.I really enjoyed making this. You can make these for all occasions,makes a great gift!


Some of you might not even of noticed but I had screwed up my header and of course couldn't fix.
I asked for helped and got it right away!!!

I'm off to get ideas for a Baby Shower card...now that'll be a challenge for me. Can't remember the last time I made one of those!

Have a great wednesday! Hugs,Diane

For my Tops friend

Here's Bella for a someone at Tops again. Like every week,I try to make a card for last week's best loser. But sometimes it's the same member,so I hope I haven't given her this image before,and if yes,I'm sure it'll be a bit different.

Sorry for the big space between my header and the post. Allison,the genie in computers will be helping me out!
Thanks girl!

So the card is pretty simple,I had to make a fast one cause I need it for tonight and there's just not enough time in a day. I'm working on my 30 xmas cards...cutting,coloring,border punching. Hopefully I'll be done soon.

Now I need to make some more girly cards for my fellow Tops peeps. A couple of them will be becoming KOPS very soon which means achieving their goal. That's a big celebration for those who know what Tops is all about. So I make them a special card and get them an angel pin to put on their achievement scarf. That club is what keeps my weight off so I like to encourage other members.

Have a great day my friens!
