3 fantastic projects by Gini Williams Cagle!

Hi, it’s Gini – if you have any summer parties to plan, then this cute card could be just what you are looking for.  
 It's Your Birthday Today! card by Gini Williams Cagle

After I stamped the lion, and colored him – I fussy cut around him, and used foam adhesives to raise him up.  The patterned paper that I used, had a printed sentiment, that wasn’t fitting for this project, so I used some of the KI Memories Washi Tape, to cover over it.  Perfect solution!

It’s Gini, and I’m stepping out of my comfort zone to share a manly card with you.  I don’t have a hard time with flowers and frills, but ask me to make a card for a male, and I get a little nervous.  I still added details, but I think they created a card perfect for the woodsy type.

Hi, it’s Gini -  For me, making layouts are all about layers, layers, layers!  I like to add lots of textures for visual interest.  
Building Memories layout by Gini Williams Cagle

When I use stamps to make an embellishment for a page, it’s not any different.  For this project, I made the pumpkins by combining three stamps.  First I stamped the Botanicabella Background onto white cardstock.  Then I stamped the pumpkins from the Happy Hauntings set over the background and cut them out.  Next I cut the leaf border from the set, and cut the individual leaves apart and added them to the pumpkins.  So, it’s a fun and easy way to make your own embellishments.  And although this was a Halloween set, it was perfect to remake it for this layout.
