Cute little brag book for dad!

I made this cute little brag book using SU! clear envelopes (5) so 10 pictures. Created a cover using Basic Black and then I took a piece of Blue Bayou cardstock and stamped the weathered background stamp in versamark and clear embossed over it. I then used my brayer and inked over the entire piece in black ink. I think it turned out pretty cool! It gave it a little leathery look. The Happy Father's Day stamp is stamped in blue bayou and then embossed with the thick clear EP. (Can't remember the exact name) I tried to do the cracked glass technique but I don't think I left it in the freezer long enough because the EP wanted to come off, so I left it with the little crack. On the tag I did the faux metal technique using silver embossing powder and the saying from the stamp set One of a Kind. I then punched it out using the Key Tag Punch from SU! I set 3 jumbo pewter eyelets using my crop-o-dile and on the ribbon and pewter ribbon slide from the hodgepodge hardware kit. I didn't want to bling it up too much as it is for my husband, and you know guys...:) I think Dave will love it as there are pictures of Kaitlyn and the boys.....even a picture of me! :)

I originally created this project for a workshop that I was invited to do here in Chilliwack. What a blast! This group of ladies were so fun! I hope I get to creft with them again in the future!

Scrapbook Pages for May Club 2008

New thing I'm doing this round of club is to teach a little technique each month. So along with making 2 12x12 layouts, we make a card using the technique I just taught. I don't have a picture of the card we did this month as I gave it to my MIL for Mother's Day. When the other ladies come who missed, and they make their card, I'll take a picture to share. Oh, the technique was opaque coloring/chalkboard technique. You can see I incorporated this technique into my pages.

OK, finally an update of some projects I've done

Well, I helped organize a crop fundraiser for my son's elementary school. This is the Thank you card a made to send out to all of the local businesses who helped support our event by donating door prizes.
This is the Thank you card I made for all the participants who came to crop and of course the vendors at the event.

Here are some more 5-in1 template boxes that I made for a very rainy Mother's Day outdoor event. I didn't end up selling much that day because of the weather but now I have lots of samples and stuff for next time around!
Here is a really cute little "pocket" book in which you could put school pictures or business cards or gift cards or any cards for that matter. It's made from only 1 sheet of 12x12 designer paper.
Here is the inside, isn't it sweet?
I loved that card I made for my husbands co-worker who left the department that I made a dozen Father's Day cards. On the inside it says Happy Father's Day with the new Stampin' Up! set.
Last but not least, here are some hot apple cider pouches I made for that Mother's Day event in which I didn't sell any, but like I said, I have lots for another time and event.
