A new card. I have been trying to master the art of the pop up. This is the first card that I have managed that actually comes up and creates negative space behind it without any help from me. I do need to use different glue though.
Here is the front of the birthday card:

And here is the card when opened.

Modigliani Box

A gift for my friend Lorali.

A cardboard gift box painted with acrylic. 3 pieces of mat board covered with handmade paper to make the exterior. Modigliani sticker from Dover Publishing, surrounded by multi-sized beads affixed with Diamond Glaze.

Nudging Towards Productivity

Hi All- I'm Emily. Way back when this started I was all excited to begin a First Year Scrapbook for my son. So I thought I would be using this to post my ideas, layouts etc. I didn't. Clearly.

But! I AM doing it. My Boy is turning 3 (!) this August and I AM DOING THIS NOW. As proof of my real effort, I have 250 photos. They are stacked neatly beginning with "Before you were born" and divided monthly through his first birthday. I have also noted in each month any events that need special attention. First solid food, first bath, etc.

So, you see? I'm doing it! Yea for me! Keep your fingers crossed for me that I won't lose steam.

Phin's Tags

Phin came over tonight and while we watched Ghost Whisperer and the Food Network, she went wild creating tags out of my scraps and punches! It was cool watching her make these mini masterpieces out of my stash. They're so very cute and I never expected that she'd gave them to me! I, on the other hand, sat on the couch like a blob after our late afternoon tea. Posted by Picasa
