Oldies Part 2

Welcome to Oldies Part 2! First, before I get started, I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who visits my blog and/or leaves comments for me. It's nice to know that you have taken time out of your busy schedules to check my blog and to leave comments. I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT! Second, I noticed that some of my pictures really suck! I need to practice taking better pictures. Hahaha! I got a really great tip from Cassie on how to edit my sucky pix. Thanks, Cass! If any of you have any tips for clear pictures, please let me know!

Now, on to the cards ... this card was made during my "think outside the box" session. I had just gotten my rather large order of SU DP and since I couldn't decide which paper I wanted to use, I just used a bunch of different ones. I also heat embossed the sentiment (w/egyptian gold embossing powder), which I hadn't done in a very long time. I was rather pleased with the way this card turned out.

This one too was creating during that same weekend. I swear, I don't know what got in to me that weekend. It was like I was possessed by a card making maniac! Hahaha! Before this card, I never made anything with the pink/brown color combo. Since then, I've come to really like this combination.
This last card was made several years ago for my old card swap group. I have to say that although this card was very time consuming, and my fingers were really sore after making the cards, it was definitely worth it. I had seen the haku lei scrapbook page layouts at Photo Craft in Kaimuki and thought they were so beautiful. I never thought I would be able to create anything as pretty as that, but Brian showed me how to do it, step-by-step. Jen has a video tutorial on her blog showing the technique for this border. Thanks for sharing the video, Jen!
Ok, gang ~ that's it for now. Got a busy Saturday planned, but hopefully I'll be able to create more things to share! Enjoy your weekend everyone! Take care, be kind to each other, and thanks for stopping by ...
