Uhhh...she actually used something other than CTMH!


Last night I was feeling so un-inspired, but had the need to create something. After making a huge mess trying out some random ideas, I decided that it was a great night to go visit my Mom with little Blake. While I was there I snagged her Papercrafts magazine (March 2008). Funny thing is that I purchased the subscription as a gift for her, but I have managed to collect nearly all of them for myself from her. I do promise to give them back, lol.


This card is a template provided in the magazine. I had to play with it and this was my second try. The first card I did by looking at the template and um, it turned out far too tall. Conner tells me that it is his "treasure chest." The adorable baubles are a "pay it forward" gift that I received in the mail yesterday (spectacular gift!). And I tried my best to create a faux metal buckle using CTMH Dimensional Elements and gold embossing powder, but it never ended up looking like I had hoped. So, I pulled out some of my Stampin' Up buckles and they were perfect for this!
