Friends Card - Trying out Gellatos

So I finally got my hands on some Gellatos.  I've been really inspired by Debby Hughes lately.  She makes the loveliest cards.  Her blog is  I wanted to try my hand at one and love the way it turned out.  I'm definitely messier than Debby is.  Anyway, applied gesso to white cardstock then spritzed it with my new spritzer and let it drip down.  Then I embossed "Friends" and some splotches on the front in gold on vellum, sewed the vellum to the Gellatoed cardstock, and added my new feather die and some thread.

I linked this card up with Case Study Challenge #176 - go see all the pretty cards there...

I would love to find more cardmakers like Debby.  Who inspires you on cards?  I need more eye candy :) Thanks for looking!

I participated in Leslie at the Memory Nest's Crafty Creation Link-Up.  Go link up your work and share with others!

Always Remember - a Mini Book

Good morning!  Crate Paper sent a box of stuff that included this mini book I've been wanting very much!  It's been nice working on it a little at a time when I get a chance.  The bling thing in the middle of the front page was picked up at the craft store in the sewing section, and the frame was in the dollar bin.  I just took off the back of it and hot glued it on.  Love it.  The ribbon came from a gift my mom sent so that's nice to have that on there.

The clear cover is a heavy-weight plastic with "Always Remember" at the bottom corner and has  gold-dotted vellum underneath - so pretty!

 This book will be a mish-mash of baby pictures and current teen pictures, whatever picture I grab that strikes my fancy.  We have a big box of pictures from when the girls were little, just thrown in all jumbled up from before I went digital, and I'm glad to be doing something with them.

I love the ones below.  I was just going through that box of jumbled pictures as well as some current ones back from the printer.  I noticed that Sara had the same expression as a baby and a teen in both pictures so wanted to scrap them together :)

Well, thanks for looking.  It's definitely one I'll keep working on here and there and will share more in the future.  Have a great day!

P.S.: I'm going to experiment with some link parties I've found and see what happens.  Here are the buttons for them:

Hello Tyrone :)

I just love our guinea pigs.  I never dreamed I would.  It helps they don't have tails, I think.  Sweet Tyrone likes to have a pet from her head down her back.  She won't talk and oink like Mable does, but she enjoys it nonetheless.  This was a white-on-white challenge at A Cherry on Top.  I just got in four new dies from Simon Says and don't know when I'll get tired of using them!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Thursday!

The Memory Nest is having a link-up, so head over and link up your latest creations!  I love that Leslie does those link up days!
