Using My Gelli Plate Printed Papers

My goal is to use all the papers that I printed on my gelli plate. I'm using all the printed sheets of paper and scraps to make books.  I use an empty cake mix box for the base of my books.

This is one of the finished books.

I used mixed media papers for the signatures.

I used threads that I had on hand, which happened to be crochet thread,  to stitch the signatures to the book cover.

This is my book collection.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

Two New Cards Using NBUS

 Today I'm sharing the cards that I made using some "Never Before Used Stuff" and I'm entering this  in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5

 "You'll never believe this, but, I've never owned a roll of Washi tape and never used it on a card before.Washi tape is the " Never Before Used Stuff " on my card. 

This is also the first time that  I've  used the button die and  the teal colored bakers twine.

I'm also skipping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to join the Challenge.

I've spent the last couple of days trying to post pictures on my blog and was unable to. Hope this doesn't happen again. Have a great day, friends.

A Card Made With Two Of My Favorite Stamps

Today I'm sharing the birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law. Her birthday is Thursday and I have to get it in the mail tomorrow. Stamps used were SU Petite Petals and SU Gorgeous Grunge.

I'm entering this in the Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge # 193.

If you follow my blog then  you've probably noticed that each week I try to participate in the fun that goes on over at Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge. Well, this week the playgrounds administrator, "Di", is taking a little time off and allowing "Sarn" to be the prefect. I actually had to google "prefect" to see just what it meant.  Click on the link and check out all the great card creations at the playground.

Here is my excuse  for not posting to my blog this week and being late to the playground. This little memory stick reader, which uploads my pictures from my cameras memory stick  to my computer, decided to stop working.

Hope you have a terrific weekend and stop back again soon.
