Let me begin by defining "luck". I believe there is no randomness in this world. I believe that all things come from God. I believe that He has a divine purpose for myself and my family. So when I use a word like "luck" in my creative process it means blessed.
I am blessed from God above!
I am so thankful for this little pup! Well she is not a puppy any more, but she is only 7lb, so to me she will always by my little pup. She has brought me so much joy!
And I can not leave off the BFF's. I love these girls. It took me to age 40 to find best friends who love the same things I do, and I cherish them. It will break my heart to leave them behind when I move to Texas.
The ProjectThis is a 4x4 coaster book. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes for binding. I painted the coasters with a dark brown. Then I started going through my stamp catalogs for images that I though would be cohesive. You can't go wrong with flowers, butterflies, and hearts! I then pulled out some "friendship" and "family" stamps for their respective pages. And last but not least some "decorative" stamps. You gotta throw some swirls in there, right??
I created all of my own embellishments by stamping on beige cardstock with either green or yellow ink, since I decided these were going to be my colors. I used cuticle scissors to cut them out. I also embellished this little album using some of my punches, flowers, border, scalloped corners, one of the butterflies and scalloped ovals. And I had to throw my deckled scissors in there somewhere (my favorite pair).
The DP : brown stripes - Basic Grey, green polka dots and flourishes - My Mind's Eye.
I used a piece of acetate as a page just before the photo of my pup. I used Staz-on and stamped it with swirls and colored it in with a yellow gel pen.
I'm thinking about making a few extra and to sale on Etsy. I have lots of cards I need to sale and some gently used stamp sets as well. Since we are getting our house ready to sale, I'm in the mood to let a lot of stuff go. I actually don't know anything about Etsy though. Can I sale gently used stamp sets on there?? Or is it for ONLY handmade items?? I'm going to have to research that!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me ramble! I hope you have a wonderful week!
