Welcome to another Stampin' Fun Friday!
It's time to start thinking about Father's Day and getting those cards made for loved ones. :)
This week I used a cute owl stamp from Hero Arts and stamped the image multiple times on different patterned papers and then cut out the different elements and pieces it all together. So easy and a great way to add some personality and a bit of "fun" to a stamped image.
I used scraps of paper from numerous projects that I had lying around for this card (no new 12x12 sheets of patterned paper/cardstock were harmed in the creation of this card). :)
The embossed square was leftover from a project I created for Hero Arts (pretty sure you will be seeing that on the Hero Blog and here next week)!
The die cut branch was leftover from another card for the Hero Blog (you can see it next week as well).
All the papers are from random cards/layouts I've created recently.
Card making is a GREAT way to use up all those scraps.

Celebrate the Seasons - June 2009
It's hard to believe that this is the sixth installment of my year long class, Celebrate the Seasons at Two Peas.
I thought it only fitting that since we focused on moms with a Mother's Day layout last month that we celebrate dads this month with a Father's Day layout.

This month's layout was based on the following sketch that incorporates 10 photos in this 2-page spread:

I used one of the more recent Quickutz 12" Border dies as a place for my journaling rather than a frame for smaller photos. If you have more photos that you want to include on the layout then you could easily replace some of the journaling/embellishment blocks with small photos.
Another favorite item I used this month is the Nesting Label Die Shape. I have used these dies lots the last couple of weeks. They are all great sizes and so versatile and easy to use. I cut it twice: once from text paper and once out of patterned paper. The title was die cut using the Silhouette and the following downloadable design available for purchase for use with the Silhouette:
I used all American Crafts cardstock for my layout (in addition to the patterned papers). By the way, the American Crafts cardstock cuts amazing on the Silhouette. I just can't get enough of it. The colors are great and it cuts perfectly!

Have a fabulous Friday!
