Balloon Animals ~ Sock Monkey

I fell in love with this AWESOME card designed by Artsy Margi ~ Check it out HERE.  She saw the adorable monkey on the Balloon Animals as a sock monkey which is so clever.  So of course I wanted to give it a try.  Here is my take ~

Balloon Animals Monkey ~ Share the Love ~ Sock Monkey ~ CatScrapbooking.comI combined the two exclusive stamp sets which are only available this month ~ Balloon Animals S1602 and Share the Love CC1060 .  I followed Artsy Margi in using Chocolate ink and Desert Sands to create the sock monkey.  I stamped two monkeys one in each color.  I then cut the Desert Sands and pieced it on the Chocolate.
Supplies used:

Since the Balloon Animals and Share the Love stamp sets are only available this month, be sure to order yours before they are gone!!!

Don’t you just love these adorable balloons???? I love them! Here is the card that I came up with.Balloon Animals ~ Jungle card ~ Birthday Card ~ artistry ~ embossed ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this card I punched three 1 1/2″ circles into a wood grain embossed cardstock.  I used the rock-n-roll technique with a twist on the animals.  The monkey was inked in Desert Sand then rolled in Chocolate.  I then came back with a tissue and removed a bit of the ink on the nose.  I then took a dauber with Champagne and inked the nose.  The giraffe was inked in Saffron and then rolled in Saddle.  The elephant was inked in Whisper then rolled in Slate.  I then took a tissue and removed a little of the ink in the ears, then using the dauber added a little Cotton Candy.  Then each animal was fussy cut.  The leaves are Artistry leaf #m411e88 and leaf border #m418c8f.

La Vie En Rose ~ Beloved Bouquet ~ Hearts ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is the inside of the card ~

La Vie En Rose ~ Beloved Bouquet ~ Hearts ~ Valentine's ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo to make the card base I used the three different hearts then welded them to a rectangle so I created the heart edge.  Before I welded everything I made a copy of the grouped hearts so I could cut the individual hearts to add to the base.  I really love the way this turned out.

12068665_10207959224204708_5548659648696510137_oEvery year we write down our new years resolutions and I try to incorporate them into a scrapbook page.  I usually make it the first page of the new year’s scrapbook. I am excited to have this page completed in advance so all we need to do it write them come January 1st!!

I decided to include a spot for our son, who is four, to start his this year.  I figured he could tell us his this year and we could record it.

Nevermore Gift Card Set

I will be participating in my first Craft Fair next month so I have been busy working on items to sell.  I was looking through my pins on Pinterest and found two things which inspired me.  I found a card designed by Aaron Barron which combined Nevermore with the Paper Garden stamp set you can see it here.  I also found a Book Box which looked intriguing so I decided to give it a try.  Here is what I designed.

Nevermore Gift Card Box ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is the cover and what the cards look like I used Eggplant as the base cardstock.  On the cover I used four flowers where the cards only have two.  I used a retired embellishment for the center of the flower. Nevermore Gift Card Box ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.com

When you open the cover, which I secured with hook and loops there is a pocket which holds four 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ cards and envelopes.  Nevermore Gift Card Set open ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is another view.  I really love the way this card and box turned out.  I actually designed a second one using a different stamp and paper, I will post it in a couple of days.

I thought I would share with you how to create this Book Style Card Box.  You will need two pieces ~ a 8 1/2″ x 11″ and a 3 ” x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock.  Starting with the 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock.Book Style Gift Box how-to #1 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThenBook Style Gift Box how-to #2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comNow with the 3′ X 8 1/2″  score as follows.Book Style Card Box how-to #3 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThen trim away these sections:Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #4 ~ CatScrapbooking.comBook Style Card Gift Box how-to #5 ~ CatScrapbooking.comAdd adhesive to secure the two pieces to make the box I used Scor Tape.Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #6 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThese are super easy to create and I believe will make great gifts and I hope sell well at the craft fair.
