Make your own simple camouflage paper by Cheryl~

Hey my crafty friends!
I have been wanting to make some camouflage paper but was not sure if I could do it justice.  I made some that I am ok with, I think I will still work on it though.  Here is my version of making simple camo paper! 
All the items I used are from Stampin' Up!

Items you'll need:
  - Very Vanilla card stock, I cut mine down to 5 1/2" to 4 1/4" and made 4 separate pieces, but you could leave it one solid sheet and then cut it after it was done.
  -Ink I used, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, and Old Olive.

I started with the lightest ink 1st, which was the Crumb Cake.  Just sponge randomly all over the card stock, next I used Chocolate Chip and followed with Old Olive and finally Always Artichoke. 

I didn't do it with this sheet of paper, but before you use it on a card, if you scrunch it up, as if you were going to throw it away, and then straighten it back out flat, it adds a lot to the paper, looks really cool! 

I will post a card I made later, it turned out really awesome! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Youth Camp, Secret Sister Cards~by Cheryl

Hi Stampers!
Here is some fun little cards I made for my daughter's secret sister at a camp she attended.  At Yellowstone Bible Camp (outside Pray, MT) the girls get to pick out Secret Sisters.  They have so much fun building each other up with positive notes and little gifts during the week. 

The Stamps and card stock are from both Stampin' Up! and CTMH.

Enjoying Summer Break!

Hello my crafty friends!
I hope today brings you lots of joy and happiness!  We have been enjoying our summer break and it seems like it's just flying by!  They already have school supplies in the stores! 

I have recently taken a leave of absence from Stampin' Up and plan on rejoining under a new director.  I can't not place orders right now, but  hopefully by October, I will make sure and share the exciting news when I rejoin, maybe you can join with me?!
Until then,  I will try and post some new crafts/cards when I get a free moment.  I try and dedicate the summer to my kids, they grow up so fast that I like to spend as much time with them as I can! 

Hope you have a great rest of July! 

Thanks for stopping by!
