Today's card is one I created for my oldest grandson who turned 18 this week.  Where does the time go??  He loves his drums, thus the theme.

I used the retired Cake Soiree  framelit to get the base of the drum.  I cut off the top of the cake and drew some lines to create the drum image.  Not perfect, put I was happy with it.  I used retired brads and some twine for the front and matches for the drumsticks.
He always appreciates my cards, which I try to personalize for my grandkids, so it is fun creating one for him.
Happy Birthday, Colton!  He is a winner.

Today's post is a frame that I made for an auction gift for Sweet Grace Ministries.  I have mentioned this organization before.  It is a local organization that supports families who have experienced an infant loss.  In October there is a walk to remember and several auction items will be available to help raise money for the organization.  Part of their theme includes a butterfly.

I CASED this from a project made by Patricia Preston.  It is basically the same as hers, but with a few changes.

I know some of the supplies are retired, but we know we all have those items.

So, I missed the Wed post so I am going to show you a bunch of things today.  Last Friday I showed you a fun frame and a link on how to make it.  I promised I would share some other projects I made using the technique.  Here they are:

There are so many possibilities.  Have fun creating some of your own.

I'm posting today because I forgot to yesterday.  This is another Harvest Hello card.  This is a perfect get well card at this time of year, especially, with the apple theme.

 Easy to do.
Real Red, Pretty Peacock cardstock
Petty Peacock, Momento Ink
Stampin' Blends 
Come Gather Together DSP
Oval Punches (retired)

Of course you can use a current punch or die for the message, but I'm always glad I have some of my retired items (actually quite a few!) that work perfectly when I need them.  I'm sure you can all relate.

Today's fold is one I found on Splitcoast stampers website.  The tutorial show you how to make a frame in almost any size you would want.  Here is the card I created using the frame.

I am including the youtube video here, created by Betty Tracy.  She will walk you through the steps to make this frame in a variety of ways.  Remember that whatever frame you choose to make will be 2" smaller the whole way around from the size of paper that you cut.  If you make the frame that pops up, your frame will end up to be 3" smaller that your paper size.  This is such a fun technique fold.

Supplies for this card:
Vanilla, Cajun craze ink pad
Colorful Seasons Dies
Come to Gather DSP pg 48 HC
Subtle Embossing Folder

Next week I will show you a couple of other projects I created using this fold technique.  Come back then.  In the meantime, try some of your own.
