More anniversary cards :).


Cut out the desired amount of petals you want, the size you want. I for the one big flower 22 petals @ 1" and 32 petals @ 1.5". The leaf stems I got from Craft Edge Forum ( I can't remember who sorry ) and I used a snowflake from the basic shapes on Scal2. I inked all the edges.

Shape petals.

Cut a 1" styrofoam ball in half and form into a smaller ball ( I used what size I had on hand ) and start gluing the smaller petals around it.

 Cup snowflakes.

Glue on larger petals.
Glue two of these together.
Glue on bud.

Here is the file for the petals if anyone needs it.


Here are some pictures of the notebooks/journals I made for gifts. I kept them simple. In side there is a pocket to put papers etc. in and the other side is for a removable note pad so it can be replace with a new one.

CSI ( certified scrapbooking instructor )

 I have great news. At my local Michaels (part-time job) we do not have a Scrapbooking Instructor. I thought it would be fun, so I took the course Spottedcanary School and passed. :):) In about two weeks I will receive my certificate. I can't wait. So for the next couple of months I will be busy setting it all up. Wish me luck. I will let you know when and where and what time the classes will be.

Here is what I worked on yesterday :)

Here are pictures of how I made them.

I also used my hot glue gun.
The measurements I used:

Outer pink petals 2 inches by 2 inches (1)
The purple petals 0.88 w by 1.30 h (5)
The leaves 1.5 w by 2.5 h (as many as you like)
The stamens are thinly cut strips of pink paper.

Ink or color the petals any way you like. I only had the right shade of pink in my paint collection so I used that.

 Cut between 2 petals just to the center of flower.

Shape flower with tool. Overlap the petals you cut between and glue together.

Add flower stem and hot glue down.

Shape petals.

Glue just the bottom of petal and attach to pink base flower. Until you get something like this.

With stamens I used the Scotch quick dye glue and dipped them in diamond dust.

Cut them all different lengths and glue ends to inside flower.

Then add leaves to flower stems and this is what you get.

Here is the svg file.http://www.4shared.com/file/7qOmYTjs/JennMcQ-_Fuchsia.html
