Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #192: Tab Closure Tri-fold Card

Emily's Card.

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #192: Tab Closure Tri-fold Card

Yay!  Mother's Day in Panama means we can actually tackle Make it Monday ON MONDAY!  Emily and I really enjoyed this week's challenge.  How fun!!  That girl was whizzing on her card.  I didn't even realize until she was done that she used a brad to "close" it.  Oops!!  Oh well, we can send it to Grandma :)

Had a hard time getting a good angle on the card, so at least I got one with a cute subject in the background :)

PTI Make It Monday #187: Partial Die Cuts for the Holidays

I had fun with this MIM!  Orginally I thought I would emboss the sentiment in pink, but in the end I wasn't too crazy about I switched to ink.  I also preferred to cut off the excess leaves vs. run the die through the Big Shot again, as I wanted to keep the top leaf poking up when the wine label was put on a bottle of wine.  Overall, I thought the sentiment..."Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas...NOW" was perfect for a wine tag ;)

Here's my card :)

PTI Make It Monday #178: Back to School Easel Card

Wow, MIM seems so quick and easy after the Stamp-a-Faire...however Emily and I still took a week to finish our cards!! :)

Emily made hers for her teacher...she did the whole thing herself...I was impressed!

SAF 2014: Closing Ceremony

What a productive weekend!  Here is my close out pic of all the projects I made at Stamp-a-Faire 2014.  I was hoping to get a picture of Emily and I today, but after a long day of swimming, we decided on a Movie Night.  So I'll re-post our picture from yesterday :)  SHOUT OUT FROM CENTRAL AMERICA!!!

SAF 2014: Time After Time Challenge

Okay....after a fun day of BBQ and swimming, I was able to wrap up the Time after Time Challenge.  I am actually really good about sending cards or getting rid of stuff I'll never use, so i didn't have that many terrible cards to redo.  And actually, I think in this case, I like my original card (pink) better than the new one!  Oh well!! :)  I am super excited that I was able to complete every challenge this weekend.  Huge shout out to my husband...I would have never been able to do it all without his help.  And I also got to spend lots of quality time doing crafts with my kids :)  I also very much enjoyed following the PTI Forum.  Scrapbooking is a very social thing for me, but as we just relocated this summer from Mexico City to Panama City, I don't know any crafters here yet!  Already looking forward to next year!

SAF 2014: Explore the 1980's with Lexi Daly

Oh Lexi, thank you SO MUCH!  I had so much fun doing these 80s cards!!!  And the music is fantastic!

Huge shout out and thank you to the ENTIRE design team at PTI.  I am already looking forward to next year's event!!

I hope I can get the last challenge it...but for now I need to stop the love affair I've been having with my craft room this weekend!

SAF 2014: Explore the 1980's with Lexi Daly

I am onto the 80s and LOVING it!  First, I know all the songs, so I am jammin' along.  I'm an 80s girl (barely, born Jan '80!).

I loved Lexi's first card so much, I just totally copied it!

SAF 2014: Explore the 1960's with Erin Lincoln

1960s, take 2!!

SAF 2014: Explore the 1960's with Erin Lincoln

Okay, onto Day #2 and the 60s with Erin.  I really need to pound out these last few challenges, since we have a BBQ and Pool Party this afternoon, and I am totally not prepared!  Good thing life is at a slower pace here in Latin America and people will probably be late!!

I had trouble with this technique...probably because I use SU! ink and the new ink pads have a LOT of ink.  It was soaking through my paper stencil....and if I got thicker paper, the stencil didn't work.  Oh well, I'm going with it!  I am loving the 60s playlist!

Emily and Alex also say good morning to everyone :)

SAF 2014: Explore the 1920's with Heather Nichols

Here is Emily's 1920s card.  I mean come on...this girl loves bling.  She used so much Stickles that the card doesn't even lay flat!

SAF 2014: Explore the 1940's with Betsy Veldman

Okay, last card for the night :)  Time to take a rest and do a movie night with the hubby.  First thing tomorrow morning I will finish up the 60s and 80s!! :)  I had so much fun today with the SAF!!  I am already looking foward to next year.  For my last card, I basically just copied Betsy's style.  Her work is so awesome!!
