Jackson Calling......

Do you have outdoor pictures of hiking, camping, fishing, spending time at the cabin or just general nature loving activities?  Then it's time to get them preserved with this awesome coordinating paper pack called JACKSON.  It is perfect for these types of memories.

Here are a couple of my club pages for the month of May using this fabulous paper pack.



 
These are pages of our old campground and our site. Although we will miss being here, we are happy at our new location in Danbury, Wisconsin. 



 
 
More memories at Campsite #103 from 2014.  The grandkids love to visit us at the campground  and of course this Gramma is not going to let these memories go un-preserved.
 
The stampset used on these pages is from the Jackson Workshop On The Go.
 
The WOTG is a perfect choice as you get the paper pack, assortments, coordinating stamp set and some matching embellishments.  There are step by step instructions included that help save you time in creating your layouts.
 
  You can see everything on MY WEBSITE HERE .
 
Thanks for stopping by the Playground.  Hope to see you again soon.

Taste of Summer Fun

Today I want to share a Mother's Day card that is made from the Taste of Summer paper pack and Stamp Set.  It is National Scrapbooking Month in May and Close To My Heart, once again, hit a home run on the special for this occasion.  I must say I am completely head over heels for this paper pack and stamp set.  It is so cute and can be used for so many cards, layouts and home d├ęcor items.

This card is a Tri-Fold design.  I will show the instructions at the end of this post. 




 
 

The paper pack and stamp set Taste of Summer are a match made in heaven.  I've stocked up on this paper to be sure I will have enough for all the projects I plan to use it for.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Flowers for Mom.

Ink colors used:

Sorbet
Canary
Sunset
Topiary
Black

You can see all the beautiful colors available by clicking HERE.

This is a close up of the adorable stamp set



I used some Coral Reef Sequins to add a little fun to the fruit.  Folded it and tied it together with some Glacier Extra Thick Twine.

All of these items can be found on my website right here  - just click the link and you will be on your way.

Tri Fold Card

Step one: Cut your 12 x 12 piece of cardstock to 12 x 5-1/2. Place the 12" side horizontally on the scoring board.

Step two: Using your scoring tool, score as shown at 2", 4", 8", and 10".

Step three: Turn the cardstock vertically. Using a craft knife and ruler (or paper cutter), measure 1-1/2" from the edge, and make a vertical cut from the 2" score line to the 10" score line. Do this on both sides.

Thank you for stopping by the Playground.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.

See you soon!
