2012 A Year in Review (part 1)

Well 2012 is almost over and what a year it has been.

The most exciting part of this year for me would have been the birth of my second Grandchild, Hayley.

It is always hard to select just one or two cards/projects for each month, especially when you post so many. This year I have over 480 blog posts for 2012, wow that sounds a lot when you look back like this.

This year being that it is so hard to select just one I am going to do this review in two parts, today and tomorrow and have decided to select 2 cards/projects per month.

Here is the selection I came up with, if you click on the card it will take you over to the original blog post.

January 2012



February 2012



March 2012



April 2012



May 2012



June 2012



Well that’s it for the first 6 months of 2012.

I will be back tomorrow with part 2 of my year in review, thanks for looking if you got this far.

MFTWSC104 Airplane wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club sketch over on the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS. It’s another fun sketch!


For my card this week I decided to make a birthday card for a male /boy so I got out my Die-namics Airplane Greetings Die & Stamp Set Combo …. love this die-namic and stamp combo! As you can see I used the airplane itself for the top rectangle on the sketch.

For the sentiment along the bottom I used one of the sentiments from the LJD Gift Card Greetings II stamp set. I love that HB2U sentiment in this set and will be wearing it out for sure hehe! After stamping the sentiment on my white card I used the smallest circle from the Die-namics Circle Stax 2 to cut out each of the letters and symbols.

At the top of the card I added one of the arrows from the Die-namics Lead the Way set … another favorite of mine Smile.

Here is the inside of my card, I used the Die-namics Airplane Greetings Die & Stamp Set Combo again to create my greeting cutting off the top of the airplane so it looks like the airplane is flying off the card.

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation.
