My First 2 Page Layout!

Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) has a Stack-a-holic template challenge once a month. For the past couple of months, I've tried to play along. This month's challenge is a 2 page layout, which I've never done.  I decided to give it a try.

While looking through my photos, I found the large one on the left of my best buddie, Cid. I wanted to create a page for him... so, here is my very first 2 page layout and my entry to the July Stack-a-holic Template Challenge!
Here is the left side closer:
and here is the right side: 
I honestly enjoyed making this, so there are more  2 page layouts in my future. Thanks DCWV!

CAS-ual Friday CFC #9

The challenge for CAS-ual Fridays CFC9 was to create a Clean and Simple masculine project using craft. I created a card (possibly my first CAS card).  I punched squares, then inked them. I cut a strip of paper and inked it. I attached the papr, then the squares. I added the stickers onto the squares. Lastly I inked up one of my very favorite stamps - by Stamps of Life, and stamped the sentiment. You can find CAS-ual Fridays here. Thanks for looking.
(sorry for the so-so photo)

I used DCWV craft cardstock and paper, ColorBox and Inkadinkado inks, K&Co Blue Awning stickers, Stamps of Life - kids2love stamps and my Scotch ATG, which I LOVE.

New Card

I created this card for a challenge that I didn't Still, I like the card and I had fun creating it. I used stamps from 4 different sets (listed below) to create the background and the focal image, which I fussy cut. I stamped one image on gray paper and raised it with a foam dot for interest. I punched lots of butterflies using  Martha Stewart punches. I layered 2 butterflies for each one. I used black grosgrain ribbon, and I attached it with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (love it!). I distressed all of the cardstock with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink. I threaded a vintage button from my stash and used it as the center of one flower. I used pearls frim Michael's for the center of the others.

Stamps used:
Stamps of Life - kids2love and trees2build
Stampin Daisies - Just the Basics
Hampton Art - Craft Affair
Autum Leaves - Flowers by Rhonna Farrer
