Creative Packaging!


I walked around this morning trying to think of a clever way to wrap my Dad's Father's Day album that I made for him. Finally, I remembered an old pinto bean bag I had emptied last month and tossed in my laundry room. The dimensions are perfect and it gave it that masculine feel that wrapping paper wouldn't have! And it brags just a bit about Arizona and it's great products! Tie a ribbon around the top, and you've got a gift that's wrapped and ready!

So easy....


I went to a friend's house the other day, and attempted to HELP her with downloading some pictures. Well, one thing lead to another, and somehow we lost some of her son's b'day pics! I felt horrible! There's not much you can say at that point. Crying wouldn't have helped.... so I made her this card hoping it would smooth over a bit of the hurt. She was actually very sweet about it, but I know I would have been devistated had it been mine! My inspiration came from the "caveman" commercials!
Inside reads "Well, I guess I proved they were wrong!"
I used the Dragon Doodles images again, this time the Computer Monkey; Bazzill cardstock; Chatterbox pattern paper; and jute. The leaves I buy from the scrap expo by the yard...love 'em and use them often! Manufacturer? I have no idea.

Father's Day Doodle Dragon Challenge




I used the excuse that it was for Dustin Pike's card challenge, but I loved making a card for my dad using the Dragon image! Popping up the clear "wave" and the dragon's hand and foot really added dimension!


Supplies:
Standard Blank Card; Dragon Doodle image, DragonFloat; Copic markers; scrap clear plastic packaging; Ranger alcohol inks to stain plastic "water", PebblesInc, summer strip; and Miss Elizabeth's sun sticker.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dads out there!
