Scraplift From A New Design Team Member

This is the card I used for my scraplift.  It was made by Brenda who is joining the Scrap Tiffany design team today.  I really liked everything she had going on with this card and I could make it into a birthday card for my step-daughter, Sarah, who has a birthday on January 31st.
I had this really great snowflake paper in this yummy tan and white.  I matched it with some cardstock in the same color and added a little Graphic 45 paper scallop.  The large snowflake I picked up a while back in Big Lots because it just looked like a great embellishment for a snowy card.  The other snowflakes I cut on my Cricut Expression.  On the small snowflake I put on gems with my iRock and then added some matching glitter.  For the embellishments in the upper right corner I dotted Stickles in brown and added the dew drops on top giving them a little glitter and brown color.
Thanks, Brenda, for a great card to scraplift!

Goodbye 2010

This week we are saying goodbye to 2010 and ringing in 2011 at Scrap Tiffany.  This card design was scraplifted, but for the life of me I can't find out who the original designer was.  While I am blog hopping I like to save cards that catch my eye.  I have a file set up for "Cute Card Ideas" and in the beginning I didn't save any information with the picture.  I have changed that now and try to get the information saved so I can give credit to the original designer.

Along with the new year we are welcoming new additions to the Scrap Tiffany Design Team.  The designers that are serving another term are:



The new additions to the Scrap Tiffany design team are listed below with links to their blogs.  Visit all of the new designers and you will travel the world, France, Australia, Israel and all over the United States.

Boys, Boys, Boys, it's All About Boys!

 It's All About Boys at Scrap Tiffany this week.  My grandson will be five on January 26th and he loves Buzz Lightyear.  I think he will really be happy with his birthday card.  I found the stickers at Michaels the other day.

Girl Power

A fun card today celebrating "Girl Power".  Since I waited until the last minute to make this card it is a simple card but it still took some time to make.  I love the Zebra stripe paper and have used it mostly on girly cards.  I'm not sure where I'll find more of it because this was the last of it.

I cut the lettering from Cricut's Lyrical Letters which is one of my newer cartridges.  The exclimation mark is chipboard covered with the Zebra stripe paper.  I've had this felt flower in my stash for a long time and it just seemed to fit the card.

Handmade Flowers

Today at Scrap Tiffany we are making Handmade Flowers.  This time of year I am very busy making scrapbooks for my children and their families.  I use filler pages that are 8x8 and each family gets five pages which makes 10 scrapbook LO's.  On this LO I have used tag holders cut from Cricuts Tags, Bags and Boxes cartridge and in each one holds the grandkids Christmas List handwritten by them.  I decorated them with Distress Inks and added a lot of bling with my new I-Rock tool which I just love.

 The large handmade flower was cut using the Sizzix die Flower #3.  The top and middle were changed by cutting off one peddle and gluing it back together which giving it more dimention.  The second flower was made by wetting down a chipboard flower that was flat.  By wetting it down I was able to peel the layers apart giving it a lot of layering.  I then used distress ink along with the Tim Holtz blending tool to give it some color and also leaving some of it naked.

The centers on both flowers are Apholstery Tacks that I picked up at the department store and cut the sharp back off and glued onto the flower.
All of the new design team members have been announced on the Scrap Tiffany Blog.  There is some really talented ladies that will be joining us soon.
