SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #2

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics Stamp Set #137154, Painted Autumn DSP #144613, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to, Joyce Whitman

We were given 5 different fall pictures to get inspiration from and this was my card I made.  You could use this card as a birthday card for feminine or masculine, which is nice.  I think at times we all have a hard with masculine cards.  This card is also a fast and easy card that you could change the designer series paper and cardstock and have a totally different card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 4 1/8" x5 3/8"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #110730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 4" x 5 /14"


I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out all of the circles.  On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the sentiment Happy Birthday from the Basic Butterfly stamp set. 


I would like to first thank everyone for your prayers for our daughter, Emily.  Life is starting to get back to normal for a lot of people and yet, there are still a lot of people that are trying to deal with losing everything they own.  It is so sad, devastating and heartbreaking what Texas is going through right now.  Please continue to pray for everyone while they go through everything and learn how to deal with all of it.  

Emily will be going back to school today to see what her room looks like.  We are praying that she was saved from the water.  To get into her school you have to go up 4-5 steps to get to the front door.  All the teachers moved everything in their rooms up 3 feet from the floor.  So, that is about 7 feet up and we don't think the water got that high in that area.  Tomorrow the children will begin coming back. They are trying to get everything back to normal the best they can.  

Over the weekend we were busy painting our kitchen.  You know how you start one little project and it just snowballs.  Well, that is what is happening in our home.  It all started with us wanting to change the kitchen faucet.  Then if we are going to do that, why don't we go ahead and get the new counter tops that we have been wanting.  Well, if you have new countertops, we should repaint the kitchen before they are installed.  If I am changing the colors in my kitchen  that means I have to change the colors in my family room as they are all open to each other.  All of this because I wanted a new faucet.  I think the next time I ask for that Mr. Wonderful is going to be telling me no way!  LOL  

We ended up having to paint the walls 3 times.  Once with primer and two with the paint.  I have to say I really like the new color.  I finished the cornice's in the family room.  It amazes me how much brighter a room can look just by changing the paint color and some fabric.  I can't wait until we have it all done.  Then the next big project will be replacing all the carpet on our top level of our home.  I am definitely not looking forward to that.  

We have lived in our home with a daycare for 18 years, so it is definitely time to update it.  It will be very nice, once it is all done.  

Here is a picture of the primer on the walls.  


I will show all of you a picture once we have everything finished.  It will be later in the month when the counter tops get installed.  I can't wait!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
