Hello my friends!

A family friend asked me to create a name frame for her girlfriend for her birthday. She wanted something pink and girly, and I thought this fit the bill.

I created new photo mat using my Petal Prints Designer Paper from Stampin Up.

The top space is for Katie to add a picture of herself and her friend to complete the gift. I added a flower from In the Spotlight and punched it with the five petal punch topped off with a Certainly Celery button that has a snippet of hemp twine. Then, the opposing corner has the Photo Corner punch with some scraps of the Designer Paper and a few brads. (I lined them up all neatly like that with the help of my mat pack - love that thing!)
I stamped the word "friends" using my Big Deal Alphabet with Regal Rose ink on Whisper White, then mounted it to Regal Rose paper and trimmed it out so that it has a little border. The "e" features two little flowers from the Three for You punch each with a little brad in the center. Here's a close up, because I really like this part!

The ribbon across the middle is the Fairy Tales Ribbon Originals from Stampin Up. I borrowed a design element from my friend Charmaine over at Oodabug Alley (hi Charmaine!) I loved her idea to use the scalloped punch from SU behind my Cuttlebug Slider die.
I have to say I was always aggravated that Cuttlebug doesn't offer a little larger mat for that to add a layer, but now I'll just use the scalloped circle instead! The "happy" in the center is from "Its All Good" from Stampin Up, and I punched it out with my 1" circle punch.

Lotsa punches, and lotsa pink, but that's just my style I guess..... I was SO happy to be healthy enough to stamp. I went to see the doctor yesterday who prescribed me a nice healthy does of antibiotics, and I'm already feeling SO much better. Good thing because I have a project class to get ready for! Thanks for all your well wishes!

I'll update the next post, but to anyone that was wondering, that pretty green floral paper I used on my "kind" card is Stampin Up from the Uptown Designer Series Paper collection.

By the way, please pardon the glare of my end table in this photo. No matter how I shot it, there was either my reflection or the reflection of a table or something. Its so hard to get a clear shot of a glass piece!
