Tracy, the "Fixin" has been Fixed

Lunch Box Tins

Here are the tins that I did to store the cards in that we are giving to Vanessa's teachers. Each teacher will get 1 of all of the cards that have been posted below this post and some type of chocolate.
I used the Jacquard Alcohol Ink on the tins.

All 269 Cards

All in all I ended up making 269 cards.
I could not get them all in one photo so I had to take 2.

Card - Thinking of You 02

I really wanted a "soft" look so I went with light pink, yellow and white. I used Prima flowers, ink, stickles and the thinking of you stamp.

Card - Thinking of You 01

This is a Page Map Layout. I used the Doodlebug Paper Frills, silk flower, ink and Stamp

Card - Thank You 02

I have done this Layout before and just had to do it again. Very easy and simple. I used a butterfly foam stamp, thank you stamp with the white paint dabbers and the white opal Liquid Pearls.

Card - Thank You 01

I used the Swiss dots emobossing folder, silk flowers, prima flower, stickles and stamp.

Card - Bear Hugs 01

I love Teddy Bears and just had to use this stamp
then I inked the edge and used fiber.

Card - Get Well Soon 01

Same information as Card - Blank 01.

Card - Blank 02

This is another layout I had to scraplift.
I got some cards from MJ, and knew I had to do some.
Here is what I came up with.
I used 3 differnt Bazzill papers, unknown printed paper,
ribbon, ink and stickles.

Card - Blank 01

Another very simple card.
I used the border embossing folder, ribbon and Ink.
Thank you Jamie for these embossing folders.
(Lori, am I out of the dog house yet?....Gotta Love Me)

Card - Birthday 08

This is another simple card.
I got the patterned paper from Lori and just had to use it for masculine cards.
I used the Happy Birthday stamp and 4 different colors of fiber.

Card - Birthday 07

I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder, American Craft ribbon,
Prima flowers and Dew Drops that I colored.

Card - Birthday 06

Same information as Birthday 05 except this one is feminine.

Card - Birthday 05

I can not remember who sent the card to me
but I really liked the layout so I had to scraplift it.
The individual squares are pop dotted and colored in
with ink using water color pens, which Tracy showed me how to do.
Thank you Tracy and Jamie
for the water color pens that you sent me.
I love them.

Here is a close up of the individual squares.

Card - Birthday 04

I used the numbers embossing folder, ribbon, chipboard,
Paint Dabber, Celebrate Stamp, and Utee.

Here is a close up of the chipboard. I used the Gold Adirondack paint dabber, since I wanted the texture I did not smooth out the paint. I then used black ink on the celebrate stamp and stamped it into the paint. I then started using the utee and kept using it till I got what I wanted. I am not sure how many layers of utee it is. Sorry

Card - Birthday 03

I used a template from, Birthday Stamp, and ribbon.

Card - a little note 01

I did not have enough of the same color paper so I used different colors. The flourish and sentiment are heat embossed, black chalk inked and 2 different fibers.

Card - Just A Note 01

I used the text embossing folder, Journal stamp, just a note stamp, chalk ink,
ribbon and spiral clip.
