Some Creations and Confessions from 2008

More Purple Onion Designs, HA, Cosmo Cricket
And some very fun embellies! I loved the paper flower used for the tree!
(Too bad I don't know who makes it!!)

More of the Above Supplies
Can you tell I was on a roll?
This one uses some HA bling on the tree

Hero Arts Stamps
(I forget who makes the paper and embellies!)

One of My HA Christmas Cards
(HA stands for Hero Arts)
The 3 big trees, sentiment and little tree are all HA stamps.
Thanks Jennifer for the big trees!!!

Most of these are for the weekly Hero Arts Challenges
Which seem to get me motivated!
(Especially the sketch week)

Card Using a Gifted HA stamp (the little birdy)
My favorite Christmas paper of the year - My Minds Eye!
The scallops and sentiment are also HA stamps.

Thanks Sue for the sweet stamp!!!

A Little Card
HA tree stamp, snowflakes (thanks Jennifer!), sentiment and Basic Grey papers

A Valentine's Day Card!

I love this layout!!!! My favorite creation of the entire year...
And of course one of my favorite 'creations' (my daughter) of my life!!!

A Layout of the Kids and Bugsy
Our 'Christmas Card' Photo!
Which has not been sent.


Do you do this? I am going through my computer files and 'cleaning things up'.

This means I am deleting things I don't think I need, shuffling files, and finding little goodies I didn't share with you!

Above are some of my favorite things that I forgot to share!

And now for some confessions:

  1. Remember when I made a bunch of Thanksgiving and Thank You cards? I still have most of them! Arg! I did not send them in time, and then had to send Christmas Themed Thank you cards!
  2. Remember when I asked for help on our Christmas Photo? I still have not mass produced the cards (aka ordered them from Snapfish), or made my annual letter... I got side tracked with baking! So, I do believe I will be doing a Valentine's Mailer instead!
Thanks for looking!

What wonderful cards! I recognize that mystery paper, but oh boy...cannot remember who makes it. Your creations are terrific..I am shamed to be so lazy in the scrapping/stamping dept lately.
Love love your layout too. Beautiful kids and great work!

Andi, you do gorgeous work. There is not a bad one in this bunch. I especially like the ones with the Christmas trees.
(At first I thought you were on a roll in 2009 and had made these all since the beginning of the year:)

All such an expression of more than talent but a real love for the art. I enjoyed each and every one but admit to stopping short at the layout of Sami.

Jacqueline said...

They are all so beautiful!! I love the one you sent me out of this bunch - that crate paper is beautiful, never seen it before. Your last layout is a winter wonderland wonder - gorgeous creative styles!

Anne said...

Hi, Andi! What a great set of gorgeous cards! Hope you had a terrific holiday season! And wishing you and yours a happy and prosperous New Year! :-)

Kelly Booth said...

So much talent you have there....

sideoats + scribbles said...

Oh Andi, those are all super duper great cards!!! :)

And Valentine's letters are just fine in my book! Hee hee. :)

Guy Magallanes said...

Wow, all the love and thought and passion. The one called Beauty makes me feel so glad that you are a mommy. Do you use that machine I've been seeing called the cricket? It cuts out lettering and shapes in all different sizes using cams?

Penny said...

They are all so beautiful but I especially love the earthy , woody ones. What a great idea to use a flower as a tree!

Deborah said...

Mercy, Maude! Were you on a creative jag or what? These are all wonderful, Andi!

I have an award for you at my blog tomorrow after 6:00 a.m. (if you're interested).


Arlene said...

Andi these cards and layouts are wonderful!! The cards - no worries, now you're all set for Thanksgiving 2009 :) The layouts are great, and as for the holiday photo, it makes a great winter 'Happy New Year' card - take your time, write some good notes, people will be happy just to receive the photo of those gorgeous kiddos!! (love that Sami layout!)
