Jackson Plaque

So here is the boy plaque that I made. It is hard to see but the paper in the background is stripped. The tie through the button is card stock cut very very thin and tied. I just now realized that I put the O on backwards, so I will have to correct that.

Well, it took me a few weeks to get my bedroom done. I had a whole other plan but am very pleased with how it turned out. I used the Kind Thoughts Brocade Small D├ęcor Stencils. I used a shade lighter mixed with gold for the first time stenciling. After they had dried I went over spontaneously with just straight gold. So they are a dual color. I have a gold and black bed set. I love the way it turned out and how easy it was to use.

Big Shot Name Plaque

Well, it has been a while since I have made one of these. Since all of my alphabet stamps have retired I decided to give it a try with the Serif Essentials Big Shot alphabet (after all that was the reasoning I used to talk myself into buying them...). I think it turned out very pretty and I hope the customer will be pleased. I am working on a boys one for her also with 7 letters. I guess the size does not limit as much as I was worried about.

Stamps: none
Paper: Walk in the Park Designer Paper, Rose Red, Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose
Ink: none
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button, Regal Rose Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Dies-Serif Essentials Alphabet, Naturally Serif Alphabet, Daisey Flower, Little Leaves

Wow, it really has been quite some time since I have posted. I once again have had to deal with some health issues and am being sent to yet another specialist, but cannot get in until July unless there are some cancellations. When I have good days I have been working on getting my house ready for graduation. I will share with you later this week how I used the Stampin' Up! stencils.

Being that we home school I had the opportunity to create my son's graduation announcement/ open house invitation. He actually designed it himself. I just got to do the handi-work. The KR is his initials. We used the texture plates in the Big Shot for the woven look behind the letters. The '09 was printed with the computer. The inside has the information printed on Whisper White cardstock. I used the ticket corner punch on the inside white. The graduation cap was punched with the 1-3/8" square punch. I cut the ribbon and then pulled a string on one end (only one end will allow it to fray). I attached the two colors with a glue dot, folded it over and put a brad through the ribbon and cap. The cap is attached with 2 glue dots.

Here is the picture we included with the invite. He graduates in a couple of weeks with another senior in our Home school group. God has truely blessed me with wonderful children. He will be going to Bible college in the fall.
