Thanks for Paul McCartney

Well, this past weekend was an exciting one for my 16 year old daughter.  I may have mentioned what a massive Beatles fan she is.  This past summer we promised her if Paul McCartney ever came close to us we would try to get her tickets.  Well, 3 months later (wouldn't you know it) the dates were announced and we got her floor tickets to see her idol Paul McCartney in Vancouver BC.  Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday.... and Merry Christmas!
We called it the Ultimate Father/Daughter Date!  Sunday Nov 25th Mercedes and her Dad boarded a plane for Vancouver to see Paul Live at BC Place Stadium.  When she got home yesterday, she was full of stories and excitment.  So we decided to make her Daddy a Thank You card. 
I grabbed an image from Google and printed for the grunge Union Jack paper, much like the Headboard I made for her.... remember? Then cut out IMAGINE with my TH Movers and Shapers die.

Mercedes and I made this card together *snort* more like 70/30!  But... she was present in charge of glue, punching, photo's and adhering.  She also picked the sentiment from SMS, Many Thanks stamp set.

Paul's tribute to John, "Give Peace a Chance"

Welcome back to Vancouver after 48 years!
What a lovely way to thank her Daddy for a day she will never forget.  She showed me what she wrote in the card.  Oh ya, he's gonna cry!


  1. What a great memory...and a fantastic way to preserve it!

  2. Wow, what a lucky girl!! I personally would love to see Paul McCartney and I'm a mom of a 24 year old. Isn't it neat that our kids can relate and enjoy the same music that we do? Great card that you made together! TFS.

  3. Wonderful concert memory. I saw Paul Mc Cartney in concert at the American Airlines Center (AAC) in Dallas, TX. Enjoyed the concert. My fav concert of all is Rod Stewart. He walked through the audience and allowed photography. A close second is Elton John concert. 3rd fav concert is Adam Lambert that I saw at the Winstar Casino in OK. Paul's concert is my 4th fav.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
