I love the new releases for March from the My Besties Company, featuring this adorable little girl! I was delighted to get to use them for my new cards. This is Phoenix Ray TM Knobby Knee Img 4109. Isn't she a doll, waiting to go on a wonderful adventure with her bags all packed?

I used Copic Markers to color this cute image ad then cut her out. I used my Cricut Machine to cut the words.

I adhered a printed paper to the blank card and glued all the piece to the top.

Carla's Art Portfolio

I needed a place to store my new art pieces. I don't want to make them all into cards or place them in frames. A portfolio of my own design seemed like the reasonable answer. I do enjoy using my Cinch Binding System, so its a win for this latest project. People can easily see my latest pieces and decide what they might like as cards or framed work.

I had my husband Sandy cut chipboard into two sizes, one for pages and the other for pockets to hold art work.
I covered each of the 10 pieces with card stock and decorated the pockets with small Gelli Prints. The book covers have lage Gelli Prints on both sides adhered to them.





Unfortunately the binder can not go through the chipboard with the chipboard pocket. So I made a new plan.

Now the book covers are held together with decorative string and the pages of art work lay loosely inside.
When I close the portfolio, it ties with ribbon. The holes I made originally are decorated with ribbon. Not a bad change, just a bit different.

Bloom Where You are Planted

https://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p8922/My_Besties_Phoenix_Ray_TM_Knobby_Knee__Img1847_Doll__Sherri_Baldy_digi_stamp__Besties__.html
There doesn't have to be a reason to send a happy greeting to good friend. I was delighted to be able to make a sweet card using Phoenix Ray TM Knobby Knee Img 1847. She is so delightful.

I printed this image twice once on Copic Marker paper and the other on printed card stock. I cute out the area I needed from the print and colored the rest of this cute image with Copic Markers. I glued the cut out printed paper shape in place.

I printed the words of the sentiment and die cut the shape and double matted a yellow blank greeting card. I adhered the sentiment and image to the top.
