Daughter's Valentine's Banner Using the Imagine and Teresa Collins' Baby Boutique

I really like anything by Teresa Collins so I was very happy to get a good buy on Ebay for Baby Boutique. I did the frames/alphabets on the Imagine in one layer and she put them on squares of red cardstock she already had and then she put their four kids pictures in the frames in the middle. I know she didn't want to put holes in the mantle when she hung this so she used tape. I think I'm going to make some bows in a corresponding pink ribbon to put on the ends

Here's a close up to show how fabulous these frames/letters are. I used the color wheel and the RGB code for Stampin Up's Real Red. It didn't show up a bright, bright red but it worked great and went very well with paper she already had. I still need to work with calibration just a smidgen but daughter was happy with the frames so I was too

Card of Encouragement for Female Marine Recruit

My name is Scootingranny and I am a scraplifter. Big time. I liked a card so much that I almost totally scraplifted it from this site: . When I first saw it a few days ago, it just made me smile so I'm hoping my copy of that wonderful card will do the same for Cassy ( ). It was all done with scraps. I used CAC for the sun and clouds (embossed with swiss dots), Happy Hauntings for the grass (put 3 together in design studio and shrunk them, used two colors), Just Because Cards for the tree with the swing and New Arrival for the airplane and banner (connected it with a scrap piece of red twine) and the little red flowers are a Martha Stewart punch with dabs of yellow stickles in the center. The sentiment is from a stamping set called "Poppy" from My Favorite Things. I am going to enclose a small card with a scripture of encouragement
