Sentiment stickers….

Hello friends.

I’m back today with a whack of cards to share.  A while back I got a Jen Hadfield sticker pack from Love is in the Details that was 6 pages of sentiment stickers for making cards.  Sentiments like, Thank you, Hello, Congrats, Celebrate, Thinking of You and Happy Birthday.  All the most common ones we need right?  I figured they would help me make short work of creating a bunch of cards in very little time.

Because of the color theme of the sticker pack, I decided that kraft cardstock would go with all of them, so that was the base from which each card was built.  Either the card base, the card panel and/or some embellishments would be kraft.  Then I pulled out my container of leftover bits and pieces of unused embellishments or die cuts or other shapes that had no other place to call home.  I also decided that my embossing folders had been neglected so I pulled out a few of those.  Beyond that, there are no special techniques I used, just piled on some of this, and combined it with some of that and finished up with 8 cards.  You only see 7 here because I made two of the white star embossed card for friends who are graduating this year.  I’ll just post each of the cards here for you to see and hopefully use for some inspiration for your own card making.

File that…

I wonder if you remember this post from way back in 2013….?  A Shannon file clip board of my dad with ephemera that either belonged to him, or reminds me of him.

I’ve had it on my to-do list ever since then to finish up some other Shannon file boards, with a few more of my ancestors and let me tell you, 2.5 years is WAY too long to have anything on a to-do list.  So I’m happy to say, these are finished and ready to hang!  And how timely too?  With the house freshly painted, the walls are just begging for some new nail holes!!

I created/altered 6 boards, so I’m going to break this post up and show you some of them today, with the rest to follow.  This first board  showcases my paternal grandparents.  They were Saskatchewan farmers; hard working, sturdy folk.  My grandma sewed her own dresses (as did many women of that era) and always had a hankie tucked into her sleeve or her dress.  And I remember well, my Grandpa’s big hands, holding his Bible, and his glasses.  And Watkins.  They had a Watkins remedy for any ailment you could think of, so of course, in the background, there is a page from a vintage Watkins catalogue!

Besides some found ephemera, I used some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chitchat and Petite Diction word stickers and some Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.

This next one is of my mom.

It includes some documentation from her immigration to Canada from Europe, and her boat passage tag, as well as a metal paperclip commemorating the City Hospital where she got her nurses training and worked.  Scissors and clocks were an important part of that life, so are included, as well as a Canadian postage stamp to denote her love for her adopted country.  As well, I included some Kaisercraft die cuts and old Autumn Leaves stitched flourishes from my stash.shannonmom2

The last one I have to show you today is a bit “out there”, I will admit!  I saw something similar in a scrapbook store in Edmonton years ago and when they wouldn’t sell it to me, I had to make my own.  It will go to the cottage and doesn’t commemorate any relatives, living or dead!  I ordered the bug off the Interwebs and had to open and mount it myself!!  Gggnngghh!  I the layered layered the file board with a piece of paper from an accounting notebook, a vintage fishing fly on it’s store card, and a page from a fish card collectors booklet (also vintage) as well as a Canadian postage stamp.  The overall botanical effect will fit in perfectly at the cottage at the lake!

Scrapbook supplies that made it onto this board, are some of these Petite Diction word and phrase stickers.  And the root is a plant I bought, fully assured of it’s dying like my plants do, except that this one would not die and now I am a plant murderer!!  It about killed me to do it, but the ends justify the yada yada yada.
