Scraps Challenge

I'm really big on using up my stash and especially my scraps!  Usually when I start a new project I hit up my scraps to see if anything there is inspiring me.  It's a good way to make room for new, right?  ;)

When I saw on Amanda's blog she was doing a scraps challenge I knew I wanted to participate.

Here's my scraps I dug around and found.  

Sorry for the blurry picture :(

A quick little hello card to send out to a friend.  These colors, the polka dots, zebra print... all right up her alley.  I know she'll love it.  

I used Lacy Labels Lite Cartridge to cut out the 2 scallops, the pink at 2.5 inches and the white at 2.25 inches.  Used some old letter stickers for the "hi" and some thin black/white polka dot ribbon.

I did something else I rarely do on cards to use up more scraps...

I added a little something to the inside of the card.  More scrap pink cardstock, leftover zebra paper and a couple buttons.  Usually on black cards I just use a gel pen to write a note but this is going to be a super quick note so the pink cardstock was the perfect size.  Plus it's more out of my scraps.  :)

I know I've mentioned many times how much I love challenges and how they really get me going to get creative.  This is Amanda's first challenge so if you haven't already joined - head over to her blog and challenge yourself to use up those scraps!  We all have them :)

Thanks for looking!


Not just paper

I do a lot of different crafts, not just paper crafts, that just happens to be my favorite.  I also do some easy sewing, key word: Easy!  LOL

I've had this idea swirling in my head for awhile but never sat down to actually do it.  Then I saw this weeks challenge over at fantabulouscricut and I figured it was time to try it.  This week's challenge, in honor of National Sewing Month, was to create a project using some kind of stitching, even faux stitching.

This was a definite collaboration project.  I needed some help from my mom (and her fabric stash) to come up with this but I'm really happy with it and excited to share...

I used my Sweet Treats cartridge to cut out patterns to sew on a set of dish towels.  I love them!  I picked up this inexpensive set of dish towels at Walmart just in case it was a total failure.  LOL  I used that really thin cardstock, Georgia Pacific, you can get for $5-$6 at Walmart to cut out my patterns than hit up my mom's fabric stash.  Than I just appliqued my ice creams on the towels.  

Here's my single scoop... the fabric made me think of Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream

Double Scoop... isn't that marble fabric so cool and kinda ice-creamy.  LOL

Double scoop w/ a strawberry on top.  I needed help w/ the strawberry from my mom but I like the way it turned out.

The big daddy triple scoop.  So colorful.  Just reminds me of summer.

So that's what I've been up to the last couple nights.  Next I'm going to try the cupcakes on Sweet Treats to see if I can come up with a cupcake set of towels.  I'm already thinking Christmas gifts maybe???  We're a crafty family and I know the girl cousins would really love something like this.  Well... I think/hope they would, LOL.

Thanks for taking a look.  Do you guys like these?  Let me know!  :)

Late Night Crafting

So I found a challenge to get me inspired and sit down to make something.  I saw Cristina @ was having a challenge to use leaves, red, orange, and yellow in a Falling for Fall companion challenge.  I still had out my Celebrate With Flourish Lite cartridge on my table from the gift bags I posted earlier... when I looked at it this card was a no brainer.  Perfect for 11:30 at night when you're trying to get your mojo back :)

Here's my fall card...

I really like the way card turned out.  The red paper is from DCWV's Amber Autumn stack and the base is kraft cardstock.  The "Happy" and "Fall" were also cut from DCWV's Amber Autumn stack.  The cut is 2.25 inches and from Celebrate With Flourish Lite Cartridge.  I did some quick (and kinda sloppy, oops) stitching around the edge of the card with a brown Zig pen.  Oh, and added a piece of brown ribbon, trying to balance out that side of the card.  

Big thank you to Cristina for getting me going with your challenge.  Thanks to everyone else for taking a look.  :)  Hope everyone has a great day!!!



I sat down last night and made a card that I actually like.  Of course now blogger is giving me trouble trying to post pictures... Just my luck, eh?  LOL  So I'm just testing some things out here... hopefully I'll be back later with a real post and pictures  :)

A couple of quick gift bags

Hey everyone!

I seem to be on a little burn out the last couple days so I haven't done much in my scrap space.  I think I need to go do some challenges to get myself going.  They are always such good motivators for me.            

I did make a couple of quick gift bags.  These are just the plain ones like the baby gift bag I posted a week or two back.  At work we celebrate all the birthdays for the month in my department at once and have lunch and gifts.  So I made these up for the 2 birthdays in September.....

Super simple.  On the yellow one the patterned paper is from American Crafts Celebration line.  I took a scalloped square from Accents Essentials and manipulated it in Design Studio to make a rectangle 8.25x5.5 inches.  The other one... not sure, just a random piece of paper in my stash.  That rectangle is 8.25x6 inches.  I cut both of the presents at 3 inches from Celebrate With Flourish Lite Cartridge.

Who was on Momo's UStream last night?  I have so much fun chatting with everyone!   (I'm Amanda711 on there, btw.)  Last night was great because it was all about embossing and I'm such a stamping novice I really learned a lot.  The chatting is just an added bonus. :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  :)

A couple layouts

Happy Saturday!  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  So far it's been a great day.  I was up early to finish up on my housework and get out all my fall decorations.  I looove this time of year and getting out all my fall decor.  Granted, where I'm at we don't get much of a change in seasons... but the calendar says fall, so I go with it :) The weather is perfection right now... I've got all the windows open and there's a nice little breeze coming through.  I watched a couple DVR'd shows (man, my DVR was smoking this week with all the new show premieres,  LOL).  I finally got to sit down at my craft table.  Ahhh... just makes me so relaxed.

Thought I'd share a few quick layouts I did.  These are just 8x8 size for a Disneyland album I'm working on.  For me, there is no better time to go to Disney than the holidays.  Man, do they know how to do it up!  (Did you know they make it snow at night during December.  Right here in So. Calif -- SNOW!!!  Well... fake snow, but still it's snows!  It's so cool)  I went with some friends to spend the day at Disneyland during the holidays and decided to just do a small 8x8 album for these pictures.

These pictures are from the Haunted Mansion...

This picture isn't very good but they deck out the Haunted Mansion like the movie Nightmare Before Christmas.  It's crazy but fun.  So that's the deal w/ the skulls.  The sign in the picture says "Haunted Mansion Holiday" and it's right at the entrance of the Haunted Mansion.  So this page... the patterned paper is from DCWV Midnight Spell Stack.  The 2 skulls I cut from Indie Art and the little Santa hat is cut from Joys of the Season. 

Here's a couple more pictures from around the Mansion...

The patterned paper here is from KI Memories (I love that paper with the dots).  The pumpkins I cut from October 31st and just stacked them up.  

Super simple pages.  I'm just wanting to get them in an album.  Next I'm working on some Toon Town pictures.... and I just dropped my letters I cut out earlier behind my desk.  Guess it's time to go dig them out... what a pain.  LOL  So I'm off to go do that and some more crafting.  :)

Thanks for looking and I hope you are all enjoying your weekends.

Kickin' It Old School

This weeks Throwback Thursday Challenge is to make a card or layout with no machines... old school style ;)

I'm a simple scrapper/card maker but this is realllllly simple.  I kinda like it.

It's a lot brighter IRL than it photographed.  

Too early for Christmas??  I saw the dot patterned paper from KI Memories in my scraps and had to use it... it's old but I still love it.  So Christmas it is this week.  I inked up the edges w/ the ColorBox cat eye in Warm Red. The stripped paper down the center was in the scrap bin also.  The sticker was something I found in the depths of my stash.  I didn't even realize I still had stickers, LOL.  Now that is old school... :) 

So that's it... paper scraps, a sticker, and adhesive.  That's as simple as it gets.  Thanks for looking and Happy Friday!  Yay, it's the weekend!!!  :)

A Baby Card

Over at Cricut Cardz Challenge they are on Challenge 43 which is to make a baby card using the colors green, orange, yellow and white.  This was kinda hard for me.... my least favorite color is orange followed closely by yellow.  That being said... I'm really happy with this card!

Isn't it cute!  Kraft cardstock base, the flower paper is from DCWV Stack 7 and the yellow paper is from the DCWV Citrus matstack.  Cut the stroller out from Stamping Solutions (of course, lol) at 3.25 inches and added some orange ribbon.  Came together quickly and I'm happy with the results.  

I've been working on some Disneyland 8x8 layouts.  They're simple (which is my style) but I might post up some pictures.  I've been on such a card kick lately that my scrapbooks have been ignored.  Oh well... I'm so far behind what's it matter, LOL.

Thanks for looking and a special Hello to my new followers.  I really appreciate you guys!!!  :)


My Pink Stamper Bird Challenge

Hey everyone!!!  How's everyone doing this Thursday?  I've got a couple posts to put up today.  First up...

Robyn @ is keeping the party rolling for her 5 millionth hit and had a challenge to make something with a bird on it.  I made this card to send to my best friend.  I'm missing her like crazy lately.  I hate being so far apart.  Her favorite color is pink so I thought it was appropriate for Robyn's challenge since everyone knows how pink crazy Robyn is :D

I sanded up the black paper after using Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder on it.  The patterned paper is from American Crafts.  All the cuts are from my Stamping Solutions cartridge.  (Are you guys sick of this cartridge yet?  I've got a couple more things I want to make from it than I'm moving on, promise ;) )  The "Missing You" is cut at 1.25 inches and the bird is cut at 3.25 inches.  Added a little bling and some black satin ribbon and that's about it!

Thanks for looking and thanks to Robyn for the challenge and all the tips/inspiration you give us all!!

More from Stamping Solutions

Hi everyone.  :)  How's your Tuesday?

I have a couple more cards I made from Stamping Solutions.  "Just Because" cards that I'm putting into My Pink Stampers Anything Goes Challenge.  How fabulous is her design team submissions!  Wowza!!  

Here's my little owl card...

Isn't that little owl so cute!  He's cut out at 3 inches.  The "Hello" is cut at 1 inch.  The patterned paper is Basic Grey Twinkle from the Lilykate line.  I added the stitches around the Hello and now I'm wondering if I should stitch around the owl???  Hmmmm??

This next one I'm not sure I like it, I think there might be too much going on.

Too much with the twine and the buttons??  I don't know?  Maybe I should put the buttons (or just one) down at the bottom of the card?  Sorry, just thinking to myself here.  LOL  :)  The "thinking of you" is cut at 1 inch and the tree is at 3.25 inches.  The patterned paper I have no clue where it's from... just found in my stash.

Thanks for taking a lot.  I'm totally open to constructive criticism :)  So leave a comment if you have any ideas for me.

More Monsters!

Seriously you guys..... I'm in love with this cartridge!!!  I've got a couple more Halloween cards I need to make, I should put down Mini Monsters and use October 31st.  Maybe one of each... I don't know if I can leave my cute little monsters, LOL.

Here's some cards I've made....

I made this card from the Phrase feature key.  It's cut at 2.5 inches.  The patterned paper is from the DCWV Midnight Spell stack.  I added some buttons and some quick white stitches around the edge with my white gel pen.

Next up... the cutest spider EVER!!!


I just loooove her!!!!  She's cut at 2 inches and I used Design Studio to do the hide contour feature on her eyes because I knew I wanted to use googly eyes.  I also did the hide contour feature on the shape on her belly.  The paper is again from the DCWV Midnight Spell stack.  The stamp is Scrappy Moms.

Last I have what I'm pretty sure is my favorite monster...

I just love this little guy and all 3 of his eyes  :)  He's cut at 3 inches.  The patterned paper is from my stash.  Used googly eyes and the ribbon is just plain satin ribbon from Walmart.  The stamp is again from Scrappy Moms.

Hope everyone is having a blessed Sunday and enjoying the weekend.  I'll be posting some more cards from the Stamping  Solutions cartridge this coming week before I move on to another cartridge.  Not sure which one I'll be "spotlighting" next.  I need to go through and look at my cartridges.

Thanks for stopping by and looking.  :)

They Make Me Smile!

This Mini Monsters cartridge... man I love it!!!  I've been making some things the last couple days... putting together the monsters... just make me smile!  :)  They are so cute!!!!

I made this little guy for the cricutcardzchallenge #42.  The challenge was to make Halloween card using the card feature on any cartridge.

Isn't he too funny!  Those teeth kill me!  LOL  I used the Base Shadow feature to mount the card on to b/c I wanted him to be more sturdy.   It's all cut out at 5 inches. 

Here's a quick pic of the inside... I used the Scrappy Moms "A Haunting We Will Go" stamps.  Seriously love those stamps!!  I just saw on Scrappy Mel's blog a sneak peek of the new "Winter Wishes" stamps.  Must have those as well!  :)

I think my flash faded out the black ink... it's definitely not that light IRL.

I spent some time today blog hopping (again! Man I can really lose track of time checking out everyone's blogs).  There were a couple of blog hops today and I loved the projects.  I wanted to share 2 with you guys that I'm absolutely going to be "borrowing"  ;)    

First up is  She made some cute little note cards and the Chipboard Boo Decoration... I'm going to be putting that together ASAP!  I love it and have just the perfect shelf for it to sit out for Halloween.

Next up I loooooved these little pumpkins on  I have most everything I need to make these but I'm need to make a quick Dollar Store stop and pick up a few orange fat quarters at Joann's.  I'm going tomorrow -- that's how excited I am to make these!  :)  I think I'm going to make a set for me and a set to send to my best friend.  I just love it!

Thanks for looking!  I'm going to be posting some other things I made with Mini Monsters probably tomorrow.

A Throwback Challenge

Hi everyone--- happy Friday!  What a week... so glad it's over and the weekend is here.

Today I did my first Throwback Challenge for My Creative Time.  We could chose any of the older cartridges we wanted to use.

Here's the card I made....

I really like how this card came out... simple but pretty (imo).  I used Walk In The Garden for the cover using the card feature, cut at 4.5 inches.  I had never used the card feature on this cartridge so I thought it was a good time to try it out.  The purple patterned paper is from Chatterbox (still using that up ;) ).  The "Get Well" is from Lyrical Letters cut at 1.5 inches.  I also inked the edge using ColorBox Wisteria cat eye.

Emma made her card using Hello Kitty Greetings... after seeing her card I just had to make a Halloween card from that cartridge too.  This is just basic but I wanted to post it up as well.  Love this little pumpkin....

Thanks to Gaby & Celeste's advice about the Crop-A-Dile I went ahead and got the Big Bite Crop-A-Dile using the 50% off coupon for Michael's  (only $21. after taxes, not bad at all!!!!).  I went today after work and picked it up.  Can't wait to try it out this weekend.  Thanks girls!!!  :)

Thanks for taking a look.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!  :)

You Rock

Hey there everyone!

I've done some blog hopping tonight... goodness there are so many crazy talented people out there in the blog world.  Thanks for sharing your talents and inspiring.

I wanted to share another card I made using the Stamping Solutions cartridge....

This would be a good card for a guy... and we all know how hard those cards can be.  I got a little carried away with my doodling dots... oops, LOL!  The guitar I cut @ 2.5 (I think) and the "You Rock" was cut at 1 inch.  The patterned paper is Scenic Route.  I inked all around the edge of this as well.

I have a question for anyone reading this --- is this a good deal on a Crop-A-Dile ?  I am still rocking it old school with a Making Memories eyelet setter and I'm ready to throw it out the window!!!  The last few times I've went to use eyelets that setter has wrecked my project.  I think it's time to finally get the Crop A Dile.  Thoughts??

That's all for today.  I'm finishing up some Halloween cards and I'll get those posted up probably tomorrow night.  I have to say... Mini Monsters is such a FUN cartridge!!!

Another Momo Tuesday Challenge

I love all the challenges out there in blog world!  Sometimes you pull out older items you haven't used, or new techniques, stretch your creativity, or they just get you to sit down and take the time to make something.

This week for Momo's Tuesday Challenge it's to make "Just Because" cards and send them out.  I really needed this challenge right now.  My card stash is seriously depleted and I have a couple friends who are going through some rough times so I needed to take the time to make these cards.

This is the first card...

This was made with the Lacy Labels cartridge.  I have used this cut the most from that cartridge, but I do like most of the cuts... it's a good cartridge.  The patterned paper is older KI Memories.  I made the cut at 2.75 inches and added a little bling to the center of the flowers.

Here's the other card I made....

This card took a little more time than I'm used to.  I'm all about simple most of the time!  The cuts are from the Home Decor Solutions cartridge and I had to do my own layering.  I went back to my old Chatterbox paper stash... I will use it all up and get it outta here sooner or later!  LOL  My cuts were all from scraps.  I used blue for the bird because on the flowers of the patterned paper there is faint blue color that's not showing up very well on the picture.  Anyways...  The two branches (the brown one was just the branch, the green one had the leaves) are both cut at 3 inches.  The bird is cut at 2.5 inches and I cut it 3 times (yellow, light blue, and dark blue).  I added some small Prima flowers, a googly eye, and a random stamp I have.

I already wrote my notes to my friends, addressed and stamped the envelopes and these are going out tomorrow morning in the mail!  So thanks Momo for getting me off my butt to get these done ;)

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!!!

Quick Note Cards

Hi everyone!

Something super quick and easy to share with you all today.  Like I mentioned in my last post I think I might try to "spotlight" different cartridges.  It's something I love seeing on other blogs so I think I should join the fun.  Right now I'm working with the Stamping Solutions cartridge.  It's a nice cartridge that gives you a lot general images and sentiments.

I made these little note cards....

(sorry for the weird picture angle)

These are really easy to make and cute to give someone with just a quick little note in them.  They are only 4x4.  Right now I'm into square cards.  Makes envelopes kind of a pain, but I'll work it out ;)  The top two are made from scraps out of my stash.  The bottom two I used the DCWV Whimsy mat stack.  All the cuts are from Stamping.  

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

Black Cat

I was on youtube earlier today and I forgot all about Mary's Halloween Challenge over at

Here's a quick little card I came up with....

Taken w/ no flash

Taken w/ flash on 

This was kind of a mess of a card for me.  I had to add the mat on top of the patterned paper b/c the black cat wasn't showing up very well at all.  So I add a green mat at first but it didn't match very well.  So I added the orange.  

I loooove that web ribbon.   It's from Michael's.  The paper is all scraps from my stash.  The cat was cut at 2.5 inches from the October 31st cartridge.  The stamp is Scrappy Moms.

Thanks for looking!


Oh Baby!

Sorry last week was so light on the posts.  Even though it was a short work week because of Labor Day it was a super stressful one at work.  So I didn't get much time to sit down and do something crafty.  :(

I put this little set together for someone who is expecting a little girl soon.  I really liked how it came together....

Isn't it cute!  It's super simple and came together really quick, but I still like it.  I think I need to go back and add the green ribbon to the gift bag as well.

So the bag....

I love these plain bags.  I pick them up at the Dollar Store.  They come in 2 packs, so for 50 cents... can't beat the price.  The patterned paper is very old Chatterbox (I'm trying to use up what I have of this line!).  The cut was made from Graphically Speaking at 5 inches.  There are some really cool images on this cartridge but I hardly ever seen anyone using it in blogland.  Is it not very well liked?  I also think the sayings on the cartridge are really great for those that scrapbook as well.  

The details for the card....

Same Chatterbox patterned paper and some green ribbon from my stash.  The cut on this is 2 inches and from another cartridge I don't see used very much, Stamping Solutions cartridge.  To be honest I haven't used this cartridge much but I pulled it out looking for baby images because I have very few.  There are some great images on here as well.  I know some people don't care for the Solutions cartridges but if I can get a good deal on ebay I'll pick them up.  I might try to come up with a few things from this cartridge to post during the next week or so.  I love when people do that so you can really see cartridges you may not own.

Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a great week!  Look for lots more coming this week... including Halloween, finally!  :)

Taking a minute to stop, think, remember, say a prayer.....

This next picture I took on one of my trips to NYC... it was so hard to go to the site and than go here to see so many items, pictures, hear audio tapes...
I like this picture because in the reflection of the window you see re-building.  We may get knocked down but we get back up.

For the families and friends who lost a loved one, we remember.  To the military, for all you do and give up, we thank you.

Take care

Mini comp books (and another butterfly)

Today I have for you some mini composition books.  I just love these little guys!  I keep one in my purse, work desk, home office, by the phone... I can find a million uses for them.  The best part, I got them in 3 (or was it 4??) packs at the dollar store!  I stocked up and I keep thinking I should go back and check to see if they have more.  Crazy I know!  LOL  I might go back and grab enough that I can make these for the people in my department at work for Christmas.... I haven't decided what to make them yet but these books are definitely on the short list.

Aren't they just too cute!  They measure at 3.25x4.5... so definitely small!

For the black, pink, and green one I used the butterfly cut on Indie Art Solutions cartridge (looove butterflies) and my big huge circle punch (found it ;) LOL  it's where it belongs now).  The green patterned paper is from Basic Grey's older LilyKate line.  

The teal one I cut the scallop out with my Storybook cartridge, the "A" is a letter sticker from Doodlebug, and the paper is also Basic Grey from the Gypsy line.  Oh, around the scallop I just used my pen to add the little dots.  All stuff from my stash.    

Thanks for looking!  Hope you have a great day.

A challenge and a borrow

Hi there everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying your long holiday weekend!  I've had a little time to spend at my craft desk.  I made up some really easy cards to send out in packages I have to get out this week.  Here's what I came up with....

This first one I made completely "borrowing" Sarah's design from  I've been trying to think of a way to use the mushrooms from the Paisley cartridge and I thought Sarah's card was just too cute.  This is also using a scallop for challenge #40 over at  The circle and scallop are from Mini Monograms which I grab all the time for scallops and circles.  I didn't realize it until this post but I think it's the exact same stamp as Sarah's.  Ack!  I hope she believes that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  I really do love all that she does!  Thanks for the inspiration.  The patterned paper is ancient Chatterbox (are they even in business anymore?) from my stash.

The next card I cut the little birdie from Cherry Limeade.  I just love this bird.  Same papers used here.  I am the worst with ribbon!  Ack!   I think I need to force myself to use it until I get better with it.

This one the patterned paper is from DCWV Summer Dream stack and the cut is from the Home Decor Solutions cartridge.....

Lastly -- this card is using the same DCWV Summer Dream stack and the cut is from one my new cartridges I got a few days ago Rock Princess.  Butterflies are just so pretty and this one is a great one.  I need to try the stained glass looking butterfly cut from the Rock Princess soon... that one looks gorgeous.  

That's all I've got for now.  I'm heading out for a family BBQ in a bit.  It's really hot today here so I'm sure I'll take a dip in the pool as well.  Tomorrow I've got nothing planned but spending time on my scrapbooks and I'm really wanting to try to make a post-it note holder.  We'll see how it goes :)

Thanks for looking and have a Blessed Sunday!

Hoot N Holler and new goodies

So I made a quick little card with my favorite Lite Cartridge... Hoot N Holler.  What can I say... I just love the owl trend right now!  My co-worker Angela loves them too, so I made her this card for her birthday...

I rarely do much to the inside of my cards but I really wanted to try this cut so this is what I put on the top part of the inside of this card...

All made w/ Bazzil scraps from my stash and the patterned paper is from American Crafts.  I *think* the cuts are 2.5 inches, maybe 3.  I can't really remember.  The stamp is from a Fiskars set.

Today was a fabulous mail day and I got in a few things I recently ordered.  I'm sooo looking forward to this 3 day weekend.  I don't have any plans, except for a family BBQ Sunday.  I see lots of time playing with newness :D  I really need to work on my scrapbook pages... I have soooo much to do.  So I might work on that this weekend.  So here's hoping for a fast-moving, easy Friday at work.  

Thanks for taking a look.

Momo's B/W Challenge

I just love Momo's blog and videos and her challenges are always fun!  I love this weeks... Black & White + another color of your choice.  I chose one of my favorite colors.... TURQUOISE!!  

I have some friends that 3-4 times a year we do CD Swaps.  We make CD's for each person and than send them to each (we all live in different states).  Sometimes we have a theme, like last February we made a CD of our favorite love songs.  In May we did our favorite music to have on during a BBQ.  It's really fun and great way to get some new music on your ipod.  :)  So this month we're doing an exchange of just what we're loving now.  I decided to make the CD sleeves using Momo's challenge.

Here's what I came up with....

Sorry for the less than pics... I hate taking pics at night.  My lights just aren't that great.  

I left the label blank because I haven't thought of a clever name for this mix yet ;)  I'll just hand write it on once I come up with it.  

The little ipod is from Paisley cut @ 3 inches and popped up.  The b/w flower paper is Doodlebug that's been in my stash for a while.  Oh... and I've been using this template for CD sleeves for EVAH!  That site has some really cool templates.

Thanks for looking!


ps--- anyone else want the bookmark sleeves posted below.  I've got a couple girls that I'm going to be sending some out to.  Let me know :)
