Card for a Dear Friend

I just love this Garden Party line from Imaginisce that I won.  I made this for a dear friend who is at the last of her 40's year.  . I used a rectangle card then decided to use my spellbinder to cut the inside to make it look like
A planter so here is my imaginary version of it. I had a blast with my I-rock and my I-bond that was a life saver with flowers. (I love these new tools in my scrap collection) The butterflies are punched out of garden party and a Martha Stewart punch I love the itty bitty ones. I punched the flowers , punched and cut the rollies.I wish I could have used the I-top for the center of the pinwheel,bjut next time. I just couldn't do this in one sitting things have been crazy, I had to get it done so I can mail it she would like this more than a bouquet of flowers.

Blogging Break Over... My word of 2011 using Cherish Imaginisce Garden Party

My word for 2011 is "Cherish" so I made this decoration of DH, DD and me it's one of my favorites of us. We took this in 2007 it was a birthday gift to do the family shoot.  I had a lot of fun doing this something I usually don't do... recycling but this just was screaming for it I wanted to do something out of my norm and Imaginisce gave me that kick I needed with their Garden party line it was perfect  for this. I used their flowers, I-rock too, paperline,  Gluearts adhesive see below variety .  So enough rambing. I will show you the final project then a few steps I used to get there.   Here is the inspiration for the project!
Here is my final project and below are the steps I used to get there!

 I was making Salsa and saved the can. I don't know what made me think I was gonna make this project but the wheels were turning with it.

Cut the can opening to the size you wish your opening to be depending what you want to view. So in this case enough for my photo
I filled this with Sand and put acrylic behind the photo but had forgotten and didn't take a photo when I did it.

I saved the lid to use as the candle stand  filled with marbles below

Well I was surely glad to get this project done and a new decore for spring it's been cold and just waiting for the arrival of Spring and this is perfect for that occasion. This was really fun and out of my box. Sorry that I didn't get the photo with the acrylic sheet but it was late and I was trying to make sure that I got it finished so I emptied sand and cut the acrylic and just went on good thing I took photos in the beginning I knew it was going to quick and Dh told me you need something so the sand doesn't come out front. Smart man that's what happened... Exactly So I'm glad that I got this done I had been working on a project and now that album is done.. So now on to my list of other things that I want to do one at a time.
Thanks for looking and hopefully this will get me back into blogging again. I just have been busy with work first month end , quarter end, year end and now another month end whew.! So I will have some time soon to do some more things for sun. I surely have missed my paper, glue and trimmer!
Products used, Imaginisce Garden Party line, Handmade flowers out of garden party line, flowers in Imaginisce line, brads from imaginisce,Die cut sticker word from Imaginisce garden party line.  Irock and gems from Imaginisce, Punch EK success, Martha Stewart punch.Adhesives were Hot glue glue arts, Glue arts pro, Glue arts adhesive squares(sticky awesome). Glue arts Extreme Tac as well.  Marbles were in my stash, Sand home depot, Empty can from cooking.

Grateful for so many things but today is about Scrappy world.....
I just wanted to take the time to say Thanks to all the people that keep up blogs with tutorials, video's , how to's ,sketches,contests, Fun , Designing, Scrappy cards and layouts.

I am so grateful to have so many friends that I have met via the internet some even in real life. It's touched my life in so many ways.. I even met a gal that we are good friends via the internet and we share the same birthday we are best of friends even have some of those that I don't share the same birthday but if you need them at a drop of a hat they will offer to do whatever it is. Most Scrappy girls are true gems.

My Best BFF doesn't blog and she can't be replaced.  She doesn't scrap that's ok we use to craft together but it's just not her thing as time grew, but she does love crafty things she has friends who make aprons, other scrappy gals but as I said she just doesn't do it. She has a beautiful Emma sewing machine and some day I think upon retirement she will do it we both talk about quilting someday and I do hope that happens but right now I don't even know how to sew I hope to learn sometime.. So many cute things that's for sure.. Just the other day I seen a cute wallet I would love to have in Coffee Material ahhh but alas I don't sew lol....

You know there is a lot of work that goes into Video's, hops, tutorials, design team... I have been on both sides of the coin. I appreciate each and Everyone of the designers that take their time to share their love of the craft to us.  I don't think they get enough recongition for what they do.  Yes they are compensated with product from manufacturers sometimes with product , but some people do it without the compensation.
Even the people getting compensated doesn't mean it's for all the work they do it's for the love of the craft not so much how much they get. It takes time to color with copics, think of an idea, do a schedule post, photograph the product , They do it for the love which I am grateful for.

So this is just a big thank you especially this season I have notice so much generousity on blogs , giveaways, people who pay it forward to less fortunate them themselves they don't keep it they give it to a friend who simply would love it but can't afford it. I tell you I am very sentimental about this because I have so many friends that are designers and I see what they do and how hard they work and I just want to say how much
I appreciate each and everyone who keeps a blog, posts, designs and shares..

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and Thanks for all you do in the Scrappy World.
