    Default My National Scrapbooking Day

    On NSD, I went to a friend's house to celebrate her birthday. Seeing as how she was the one to turn me on to scrapbooking, she held a card party. We spent the evening eating, chatting, and making cards. Here are some of our creations.

    Here is a birthday shaker card. The gumballs in the machine move around.


    Here is a graduation hat.



    Here is a tri-fold card for Mother's Day. It has 2 pockets on the inside, one for a notecard and one for giftcard.



    I put a magnet I made in one of the pockets.


    This is another trifold card. I was playing with a cuttlebug and discovered a love of white ink with this one.




    And finally this is the desktop calendar. It was sooo easy to make and I just loved how it turned out.

    My friend had all the ideas all ready to go. With the shaker card, she downloaded and printed out the gumball machine. Then we cut out the center and glued acetate over the hole (we used pieces of a cricut mat cover). Then we used markers to color in. I made the gumballs out of a hole punch. We then took a white piece of paper (I embossed a few gumballs for background and used foam squares to attach it to the machine picture. You have to make sure you have a complete seal so the pieces don't fall out. Then we glued the whole thing to a card.

    I am sure there are better instructions or a tutorial. I believe she got most of the projects from splitcoaststampers.com.

    oh wow! What a fun birthday party idea!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE everything you made! The gumball card was great. What a good way to use up the plastic covers off the old cricut mats. And the desk calendar is great. TFS.

    I just had so much fun playing with new stuff! I definitely want to get a white pen and white stamp ink. She has a lot of Stampin' Up stuff and it seemed really cool. It's expensive but I'm pretty sure I can find some stamps that I like at HL when they are on sale. Now I know how to use them! The cuttlebug was neat for embossing but I don't know if I would use it enough to justify the expense. I LOVE the Stampin Up ink pads. The covers slide so I don't have to worry about losing them so i think I might invest in a few. I also love their collection of stamp wheels. And, they have a new gadget that helps to position stamps perfectly. I am ordering one this week!

    All of these are great. I've never seen white ink used before - it looks gorgeous on that paper - beautiful work on everything!

    Nancy - WOW!!! You really did a bang up job on everything! I totally love the graduation hat - did you use a pattern? I have to make two graduation cards today, and I think I might lift that one from you. And the white ink looks awesome! I wish I had a way to work with white ink like that. The calendar rocks. Can you take a better picture of the gumball card? That looks cool but I can't tell that the gumballs can move due to the picture quality. I'm intrigued by it.
