travelling tags

I am going to visit my sisters in RI soon and I had an idea to make this luggage tag tonight. I bought these adhesive lamination tags a long time ago, so I was glad I remembered where they were in my stash! The stamp set is the retired Oopsie Daisy. The letter stickers are from the Sands of Time paper. I used Palette inks, watercolor pencils, and a Dove blender to add the color.

Feeling challenged lately...

What I mean is, I have been going online at PaperWings and getting inspired greatly lately. I was on a late night chat last week and the challenge was to make a card with paper piecing. This is what I came up with-fastest I have ever made a card. It was really neat chatting, then working, then chatting some more. The "chat crop" started at 10 PM and ended at 2 AM.

The next challenge that night was to make a birthday box. I had never made a box before, but I love playing with my scor-pal, so I came up with this.

The next day I added a ribbon handle to the sides on which I had stamped "happy birthday to you," put 5 birthday cards and envelopes inside and gave it to my friend at her b-day party. I did all this very last minute, so I wasn't able to scan the finished cards and box before I had to leave.

Today I was looking through Cardmaker magazine and saw a triangle card, using scor-pal again. I have seen quite a few of these on the PaperWings gallery, but never had directions before. I made this card this afternoon. I don't know what made me pick orange and blue, but I really like the way it came out. Here's the inside:
If you want directions or know which supplies I used, just let me know.

Christmas in June

I made 6 Christmas cards today. I am hoping to make at least 6 a month-that way I'll have them ready to go in December instead of trying to find inspiration and energy to make them the week before Christmas!

I used the TAC set "Christmas Fun" and paper from my scrap box. The sentiment is actually on grosgrain ribbon that I bought last year.
