And now for something a little different...

Yes, it's been a while since I've blogged. I've been out of town (we went to Vegas for hubby's class reunion) and, since I've been home, I've been working on PTA stuff in my spare time. It's my first year on the PTA (and coincidentally, my older daughter's first year of elementary school -- she starts Kindergarten in three weeks!), and not surprisingly, I've underestimated the amount of time that will be required of my PTA commitment. Oh well...it's for the best, right?

But back to the important stuff -- scrapbooking. Well, sort of. My project this week was a set of gift tags for a swap on 2Peas. I haven't done too many swaps, but I find they push me to be more creative, so I want to do more. These gift tags were also my first foray into heat embossing and, I must say, I think I'm hooked! It's much easier than I thought, and the effect is really cool.

So here are the tags. I used Piggy Tales papers, and the stamps (both the butterfly and the "thinking of you") are Hero Arts.



I was having so much fun with the gift tags that I decided to do something totally crazy (for me, at least) and make some matching cards. See, I'm mostly a scrapbook layout girl. I don't really do cards. But I had leftover paper and an extra embossed butterfly, so I figured "what the heck?"


I'm a bit biased, of course, but I think these are pretty darn cute. I might actually be brave enough to give them to someone!

hi robyn from PP!!
you have a great blog - love your layouts!!! esp. the liberty belles one and the black with a pop of red from the beginning!!

these cards are really cute - and since i'm more of a cardmaker than a scrapper .... i think you should be proud of them and send them off to make someone's day!
