Genealogy Page

Yes, I am still working on my Mother's genealogy book.  I did not get it done in time for Christmas as a bunch of other projects came up and I had a big break that added many new pages. At this time the book is about 140 pages. I place all of the objects I want on the page and then I go back and decorate.  I try to keep things in a 2 page spread and I want the pages in the right order before I decorate.  All of the pages with the family trees have the same concept: same background, same size boys and girls and same layout (-design).  I smeared out the names here because they are present day and I do not feel right publishing their information. Once I put the medallion stamp on this page my daughter told me that I should add some bling.  When she came back and saw what I had done she LOVED it so I just had to share it (plus I haven't posted any MDS in quite a while even though I have been getting about 4 pages done a night).  To add the color behind the flower I just added circle punches, colored then in and then moved them back to be behind the stamp.

Buehner Name Frame

Another last minute Christmas gift.  I can never go wrong with a personalized gift.  I knows that she loves shimmer and bling so I tried to add as much as I could without going overboard.  The top Awning is sprayed with the Shimmer paint/ Rubbing Alcohol Solution. The letters were sponged to add a bit of a vintage touch.

Eagle Birthday

This is a go to set for me when it comes to masculine cards, and most of the men in my family loves wildlife so it fits them too. To do the leaves I just stamped them in the lighter colors and used a marker to outline and put a few spots in the center, very simple yet gives a great effect.

Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
Ink: Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso
Accessories: Extra Wide Oval Punch, Postage Stamp Punch
