I made this card for my sister-in-law Jessica. Her birthday was last month, so I can post it now.

I used my scallop circle punch to punch out 8 punches from an old book (gasp!). I don't know if I can keep doing that, it's really painful destroying a book. It's a book that I got for $1 at a book sale with this process in mind. You could also stamp a word stamp on vanilla paper and punch it out. I do like the real vintage look the book pages give. Then I wet the scallop circles and crunched them up. I then opened them back up some and let them start to dry. Then I sponged some shimmer paint on the individual scallop circles. I put the rhinestone brad through them once I stacked them on top of each other. I then scrunched them into the shape I wanted while they were still pliable. They dried in the shape I left them in. That's "it". It's really not that hard.

All of the supplies are Stampin' Up! except the book that I used for the flower. Contact me if you have questions about anything.

Also, I'm always open to come to you for either a class (paid attendance for multiple projects) or a workshop (free demonstration with one project). If there is a group of you that would like to have something planned, customized for you, please let me know. It's a great addition to a girls night "in".

Sale-A-Bration is going on right now with Stampin' Up!. This is a great time of the year to get stuff that you need while also earning something FREE for every $50 in merchandise that you spend. You can view the FREE stuff here in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

I bought this mailbox at the Target $1 Spot before Valentine's Day, hoping to decorate it for one of my kids. Well, I didn't get to that... I did finally decorate it, but it will be going to the Discovery Church's Women's Spring Retreat next weekend as a raffle prize. I will be making a set of 3x3 note cards to put in it. I hope to post those later this week.

Here are the details:
