Alaska!

We are back from our Alaskan cruise ! What a fantastic trip! We were blessed with phenomenal weather - it only sprinkled for a few minutes one afternoon! I thought I would share just a few of the hundreds of photos we took!

This photo was taken at a state park in Ketchikan, our first port of call. These totom poles are hundreds of years old!
One of the highlights of our cruise (and the place where we probably took the most photos!), was Tracy Arm Fjord. We spent 4 hours in the fjord. Photos do not do this place justice! The blue area in the center of the photo is a glacier. The icebergs and flows along our route "calved" from this glacier. The newer chunks are the bright blue ones you see. Once it is exposed to the air, they turn white.We took a train ride up to the summit in Skagway. This is just one of the many beautiful scenes!

Flower Garden Embossing Folder

This card was one of this month's Hostess Club projects. It highlights another way to use our Embossing Folders. After embossing Vellum card stock, turn it over so the indented side is up. Color the images with Stampin' Write markers (you can also use Watercolor Wonder crayons). Adhere it with the raised side up on a piece of Whisper White card stock cut the same size as the Vellum card stock. (hint: to keep adhesive from showing through the Vellum, place mini glue dots in the center of the flowers to adhere it to the Whisper White card stock)



Supplies: Pretty in Pink card stock & marker; Daffodil Delight card stock, marker & 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon; Wild Wasabi card stock, marker and Classic Ink; 1 3/4 x 7/8" Oval Large & Designer Label punches; Whisper White & Vellum card stock (not Vellum paper)
