Father's Day Cards

I am by no means a card maker. I have no idea really how to create and decorate one. Now when it comes to scrapbooking I feel I have more room to work with. I guess my creative side wasn't all with me tonight. I was exhausted when I made these and trying to run after my 3 yr old in the process!

To make these cards  I bought some fancy scroll silver paper from J's, Blue, black and red shimmer paper from J's. I used Black glitter paper for the layers. I found some scroll looking rhinestone stickers on sale at M's and I used my Hotfix rhinestones on the red card.

The blue card is for my dad and I made it simple. The Red Car is for my hubby from our daughter. We just bought a 2011 camaro and its red too so I thought this was CUTE! They are simple cards but they came out good for doing this under an hour. God Bless my gypsy!

Volcano Layout

This is a layout I just finished of Gualbiou Volcano in St Llucia. This was taken on our honeymoon. This is the only drive in volcano in the world. Was awesome to see a volcano and hot springs right in front of our eyes.

The carts I used in this layout are, Paperdoll dress up (for volcano), Gypsy Font, and George and Basic Shapes. The background paper I bought from M's and I added bling around all my pictures and my journaling using Jolee's Swarovski crystals that I bought at M's. I used One and light Green glitter paper for my words.

Toraille Waterfall Layout

Here is a layout I did of us at Toraille Waterfall in St Lucia. It was a beautiful day besides for the water being FREEZING!!!! I was so cold I could barely stand to be in the water. It was a cloudy day but it was hot and humid. I took as many shots as I could before we had to move on to the next tour.

Well I hope you like this layout, Thanks for stopping by!

For this I used Lyrical Letters for my font, I used Lyrical Letters also for the word Paradise and then I welded a flower from Life is a Beach. The flowers around the title and main picture is from Mothers Day Bouquet.
The borders around the pictures I used George and Basic Shapes. I layered them 3D and used thicker foam stickers to really pop the pictures out. The rhinestones in the center of the flowers are Jolees Hot Fix swarovski crystals.
