Wedding bells are ringing for many couples during the next month.  Here are some of my creations for this month celebrating those in love.  I have made a Bride Scrapbook page with the eyelet border punch for the dress topped with the butterfly punch on the top of the dress and using the scallop circle punch for the bouquet of flowers which is made from some new mini punches called itty bitty shapes for sale now in our new summer mini good till August 31st.  I also used some Tulle for the veil and her under skirt and the bouquet.  Her hair is made from a scallop punch.  On the photo frame I used the sizzix decorative accents.  I am happy with this page and am trying to incorporate more scrapbooking in my designing.  Below that is a card also made with many of our great punches. and a sizzix die called the lattice die that has been run through with folded paper it increases the size of the paper to about 8x8 and when folded it makes a great place setting item that would look nice filled with kisses.

Okay I have seen many other Artisan award contestants entering their almost a winner entries.  Not sure mine was but thought I would share since it is wedding related. 

Here is the cake made in 5 layers.  I did start from scratch and made all the layers without the help of boxes to start with.  I used the movers and shapers die lattice die and embossed all the cake layers with the SU embossing folders  I will add my daughters wedding scrap picture here as well.

Beach Diva and Beach dude

The Beach Babe (Diva) is my own original creation.  The beach dude is a case of a Card my upline Barbara Harmon cased from someone.  I so love the beach and these cards were used to cheer up my ailing sister who had a appendicitis last week and my brother who turned 50 last weekend.  They sure did like them.  I hope to have some with me at convention this year to swap out.  Convention every year is a blast and I don't ever want to miss the fun and excitement.  I am working on some swap cards and anxiously awaiting to order the new colored cardstock.  I can't wait to see the new catalog and hope that some of you might want to sign up to be a member of my Lucky Ladies team and think about selling Stampin' UP! to help support your family with the extra income.  To Join my team just log onto my blog and use the passcode bize302.  It is so much fun owning your own business and I hope that you would attend convention with me next year.   My website is

Beauty and the Beach

I made this scrap frame for some friends of mine that own a scrap place.  It is located in Inverness and run by the 5 sisters and it is called scrapping sisters.  They are just on Inverness blvd off 41 where the old driver's license place used to be. Go and check them out.  The Beach Gals in this Beauty and the Beach frame are all made with Stampin' UP! punches.  The Bikini's are made from the 2009-2010 in color polka dotted ribbon and a fork bow.  The head is made from the 1 inch circle punch the hair from the scallop punch.  The legs are the word window punch and the arms the corner page punch.  The sunglasses are made from cutting the scallop edge punch.  The bodies are a wide oval after punching turn the punched oval sideways to take a little out of each side of the oval so they have a girlish figure.   The towels are a 2 inch by 3 1/2 inch piece of DSP with a 1/2 strip added to each end and feathered with the scissors.  Aren't they cute.  They have a great suntan added by sponging creamy caramel to blush blossom card stock. I enjoy sharing my creations with you.    This is my own design and if you use it please link back to my blog.
