Here is my March Facebook Cover that I created in My Digital Studio. It's a lot of fun making these. I am also including the image that I am using a my badge this month. It is from a card I made at my peep’s (Judy Sumner, Mary Taylor and Marla Schack) Card Buffet. It was designed by Judy Sumner and it just a cute as it can be!
Happy March Everyone and Think Spring!
My grandson Joshua has gotten plenty of use of Grandma’s Stampin’UP! products this year as he has had several assignments that require him to make a visual project. This coursework is a cereal box book report about Charlotte’s Web. His assignment was to create the book cover on the front of the box and other requirements for the sides and back. Mom took charge of the sides and back, Grandma took charge of the front.
We used punches, embossing folders, textureplates and some dies as well. Joshua has become a pro at running the Big Shot,
sponging with the ink pads, tracing with the light box and of course, punching.
You will recognize most of the punches of each character except maybe Templeton the Rat. His body is made from the Owl Punch. His tail and ears were made using the Bird Punch.
Joshua is one Terrific Grandson. His score on this project? 105%
Each month the Pieces of Heart SU demonstrator group get together for dinner and a challenge. This month Patti Schnell challenged us to alter a tin can—probably from a can of vegetables. I Googled and Googled trying to find an idea. I looked under paint cans, coffee cans, soda cans etc. with no luck. I even looked under bed pans. Then one afternoon I was browsing thru my mail when I came across a Macy’s ad. The envelope had an just the image of a Santa belt with a red background. BINGO—I was inspired. The Santa punch art was inspired by Patty Bennett. Here is what I came up with:
The Pieces of Heart challenge this month was to create a card using at least 10 circles with 2 different sizes. I have named this frog after our mascot, Don Schell who gave us this challenge. I thought it to be quite a challenge until I happened upon this adorable punched owl by Tammy Howel. It was almost as if he came to life as I assembled his parts. There are way more than 10 circles and 2 different sizes so I met the challenge without a contest.
Best thing about this card? With the exception from the Whisper White card base, all of the paper came from my scrap box.

1 – 1 3/4" circle Always Artichoke
1 – 1 3/8" circle Old Olive

2 – small flowers from Boho Blossoms punch Always Artichoke

For smile – cut 3/4" Basic Black and then cut 1/2" circle form that in a smile shape.
Sponge green pieces with Always Artichoke. For eyes the Always Artichoke circles are glued behind the oval and the white and black in front of the oval.
