Geared Up Garage Slider Card

I've always wanted to try one of these Slider Cards and once you work how to create one they are so addictive. I can't wait to do another one with different images, this is my husband's second birthday card  I've created for him this year. The first picture is the slider card closed, the next two are once you pull on the ribbon tab it brings the card to life not only revealing the sentiments but also standing your card up.

Geared Garage Layered Tunnel Card

I started to create a couple of cards for my husband's birthday, this is the first one. A Layered Tunnel Card using the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set and the Garage Gears Thinlits. My husband is right into cars so he will love this one. I cut out the cogs with some silver foil cardstock and colored the images with my Blends. I love doing the layered tunnel inside the card, gives it a great 3D look.

Shadow Box Frame

I created this Shadow Box using the Free As A Bird Stamp Set for a very good friend of mine as a gift  for always being there for me on my tough days and good. I hope she likes it, when the new catalogue came out in June last year this was her favourite set so here's hoping. It's been a long time creating this project and in the end if you are thinking of making one I strongly suggest you create everything for your layout first and just see where everything looks best and start creating.

CD Writing Set

This is my team swap I did for the team I'm on for the Stampin Up Conference this month in Sydney. I created a Writing Set by using a Stampin Up CD Case, inserting some DSP in the cover. I decorated a writing pad and adhered it to the inside of the case with adhesive magnetic sheets so it can be removed to use. I added a small pocket on the left hand side with a 2020 calender.
