Freebie Friday Week #12 from A.J.'s Digi Shoppe™

I admit I do not like Peeps but I went go to the store and they are EVERYWHERE!  So I decided to do Peeps Paper for a Freebie Friday!  I hope everyone likes it :)

I made this 5"X5" card using Amanda's wonderful Striped Paper Pack, which you will find HERE.
I Printed off the papers together with her free "Missing You" sentiment which you can download HERE together with some of her other freebies.

After colouring the sentiment I realised I didn't have the right colour flowers but DID have some plain white ones which I coloured using my Promarkers.

The "Ribbon" was made by running a matching piece of paper through a crimper.
The leaves were punched in dark green flock using a "Stampin' Up" punch.

I hope you like it.

Get Well Card

I used the lovely Purple Daisies paper that was offered as a freebie on the A.J.'s Digi Shoppe Blog to make a get well card. I used  Dollarstore foam tape and  Staples cardstock to make a simple 3d layered effect. I added a touch of additional color to the layered daisies with Ranger Distress ink and stain.  The sentiment is a Poly Clear stamp by Hero Arts. I used Scrapping Gear double sided tape to afix my creation to a Dollarstore cardbase.

I Love You To The Moon And Back!

I just used the moon and star for this card, which was from the hey diddle diddle digi line . I colored the star and the moon with my copics. Next added stickles to the star and used my peachy keen stamps to put a cute little face on the moon. I then added a bow with twine and the sentiment which was from scrappy moms stamps. I hope you love this sweet card and it was pretty simple to make also.

My second installment in Mother's Day Papers for Operation Write Home are these two beautiful papers.  

These files are HUGE even compressed so I had to split them up 

I love dandelions and daises so for me these papers speak volumes!

"DRINK ME" Alice in a bottle

I had this little bottle sitting in the top of a cupboard for some time and just knew it would be handy for something. :0)

So I printed off Amanda's cute digi of Alice onto card and glued her to the inside of the bottle, then printed off a tag onto white card and aged it using an ink pad. I then drew and stuck a small door onto Amanda's "Drink Me" backing paper.

I wonder if the bottle Alice is holding has a smaller version of her in it !?

Curiouser and curiouser!

I hope you like it.

Floral Freebie Book

A cute cardboard and paper book
I have been on a bookmaking journey, and it has been so much fun!  I covered my first book with Amanda's gorgeous flower paper that is available for FREE to people who read the A.J.'s Digi Shoppe Blog.  I used corrugated cardboard for my front and back covers and some cereal box card for the binding cover.  The spine is a piece of cardstock folded accordian style. The pages were glued directly to the folds of the spine.  I added in cardstock that I colored using distress ink pads to create spaces on the pages to write on.   I removed some pages from a dollar store notepad and attached inside the back cover.  I embellished with paper flower stickers that I distressed with stain and ribbon. I rubbed the whole book down with distress inks to add some character.
