www.mpress.com.au and scored each of the five points from the point to the centre, and then puffed it up and glued both pieces together to give a nice fat star, I used Graphic 45 paper, Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper and cut out the pine leaves from a Marianne's Creatable cutting die, www.mariannedesigns.nl I am happy with this star and am entering into More than one score #11 anything goes with your scor-pal and more than one score http://scor-pal.blogspot.com.au Hope you like it, by the way I adhered the twine on the inside before joining the two pieces together.

http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au. I used plain white cardstock for the base and also the topper, which I dry embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder "Polka Dots", I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Tool, and shaded the edges with Memento Ink Pad, "Cottage Ivy", I used a Movers and Shapers cutting die "Mini Pine Tree and Holly Set" also by Tim Holtz, for the holly leaves and used a generic office punch with red card stock for the berries, and I used a Sizzex 12" cutting die "Birds on a Wire" I really like these little birds as they seem to have a lot of movement in them. I shaded them with Bahama Blue and Dandelion, both of these inks are also Memento ink pads and used a branch with leaves that was a gift from a friend, I don't know which company made this die. I used a piece of scrap paper on the lower section of the card which was a piece out of my scrap basket and put a piece of red and green ribbon stuck down with double sided tape and rounded the corners with a corner punch, I do like this card and hope you do too,, Thanks for visiting!!

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au and the sketch I picked is "Sketch 5 - May 2012" thanks for visiting.
http://dawnsinspirations.com. It worked for me when I recently made a Christmas flip Album for my friend, this is the page 1 and I used a Dyan Revealey stencil for the edges and a memory box stencil for the arrow and a stamp for the palm tree and a little cutting die from Quickutz for the van and trailer and some paper from my scrap pile as a mat behind the photo, I washed the paper with ranger distress re inker - tumbled glass. On page 2, I washed the page again and used a Tim Holtz stencil "stripes" and "clockwork" using "Vintage photo" for everything on the page, used scrap paper again for behind the photo, and more scrap paper to cut out the grass, which is with a Cheery Lynn flower, but it makes great grass, and the road sign was cut with a template that my friend Helen gave me and stamps are from Hero Arts Stamps "Past Times" set. and the arrow is from a Memory Box Stencil. Hope you like these photo's, I will have more in following days, Thanks for visiting
