Hodge Podge

This is our final day with Michele Kovack. We have enjoyed all her inspirational projects this week. And just wait til you see how many projects she is sharing with us today!! Thanks Michele for spending a week with JustRite!! If you love Michele's work please visit her blog Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scrapbbooker.

I call this my Hodge Podge post! The first project is a little purse cut from Provo Craft's Tags, Bags, & Boxes cartridge. The paper is by October Afternoon. I used redline tape to adhere all the sides together.

I added vintage ribbon and a Melissa Frances glittered chipboard heart. On top of that I added 3 Doodlebug flowers . I used the Pink Sonnet Stamper Kit with the birthday designer center and one of the designer borders to stamp on a Shrinky Dink. I punched a hole in it and heat it up. I strung it on floss through the chipboard heart. Wouldn't this be cute to give a gift card in? or a small jewelry box?

The next project is a scrapbook page of my daughter's special friend, Patty. The paper is by October Afternoon, the transparency flowers are by Fancy Pants. I also added some vintage buttons and a large Making Memories felt flower.

I was on a bit of a Shrinky Dink kick and decided to add a center to the flower.Here I used another image from my New Pink Sonnet Stamper to create this fun center for my flower. Sometimes those little touches make a page special!

I have one more scrap page for you! It was a collection of pictures from the zoo with my son. I used some Flair paper and Jenni Bowling journaling tags. I used the Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II on a transparency.

I used Versamark ink and black embossing powder. I heat set it and added some Stickles for the dots for added interest. Love how it just adds a little something, something! Here are a couple of cards I created using the same snowman. He was created using a watch crystal, glue, a teeny Stampendous snowman, and chunky glitter. Instant Shaker Box! I made 2 of them and decided to try 2 different cards with them.

For the first Card I used one of the sentiments from the Harmony Oval Stamper II stamp set for the word, Believe. I wanted it to fit on the ribbon, so I cut it out using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities die. While the die was still in place I used my Copic Airbrush system to add a bit of blue to the sentiment. I cut the B out separately and glued it directly to the shaker for added dimension. The paper is SU!, Fancy Pants, and Melissa Frances. I layered everything including the ribbon, glittered heart, shaker, and sentiment. I added a teeny rhinestone to the i in Believe and threaded my own stick pin with my stash of beads. I also added some pink tulle for a dreamy effect.

The second card uses the same "Shaker Snowman." I made a round, scalloped, gatefold card using Cosmo Cricket and SU! paper. I punched a small heart out and filled it with glitter. I added a button threaded with floss. For the outside of the largest circle I used one of the designer borders from the Christmas Stamp Ensemble. I stamped it in Versamark and sprinkled blue embossing powder, then heat set it. The circles were cut using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities.

I have so enjoyed my week as Guest Blogger! This has to be the most generous company I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Thank you so much JustRite!

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
