So Many Eyes!

Hi Crafters and Bakers! Welcome to my tiny spot on the web. Today is the fun day where LilaLoa, aka Georganne, and I take inspiration off of each others work. I get to choose one of her adorable cookies and make a paper project off of that and she chooses one of my cards and makes a cookie off of that.  Have to say, one of my favorite days of the month to see what she has done.  :)  On to the show...

I have a ton of nieces and nephews so I always try and have multiple birthday cards on hand.  I saw these cookies of Georganne's and I had to recreate the one w/ the eyes.  Check out her blog post on these HERE.

I LOVE ALL of those EYES!!!  I knew I just had to do googlie eyes on my monster.  They jiggle and everything.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  If you haven't yet be sure to stop by the LilaLoa website to see what Georganne made and to check out all her other yummy creations.  She's amazing.

You're Out of this World Awesome!

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge.  Woo Hoo! This is the time that I get to make a card based off of one of LilaLoa's cookies.  I love finding inspiration in different places for my cards and her cookies are fabulous inspiration.  Try it sometime!

I didn't want to make a valentines day card but I saw these cute V-Day cookies and I needed to use it for my inspiration.  So I flipped it to a birthday card.  The following are her cookies and you can find her post about them HERE.

 The following is my card.  I have to say I love how it turned out. 

I used my Cricut Explore for this card and it cuts fabulously, love the writing pen option (used it on the message), and easy to use software.  

I added a bit of glitter.  lol  I also added a black gem for the eye.  Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to the LilaLoa blog to see her cookie that she made off of one of my paper projects.

Biking Along with a Birthday Theme

Hi Crafters! Today is a card I made my niece for her birthday. She loves this type of cruiser bike and got it for her birthday so I found it in the Silhouette store and had to make it. She is also on the swim team and they are The Penguins, hence the penguin in the basket. :)

This cut had a lot of pieces to it but it turned out so great!  She loved it.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Cookie Card Challenge - Sleeping Baby in the Clouds

Hello Bakers & Crafters! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge!   Well almost.  Instead I'm making it the Cake Card Challenge.   :)  I was in the mood to make a baby card so while I was looking on Georganne's website, LilaLoa, I saw this cutie pie cake and it inspired me to make a cutie pie card.  :)  You can see her post on the cake HERE.

Before I get to my card let me share some exciting news.  Well, for me anyways.  I got the Cricut Explore for Christmas!  I'm so excited.  I haven't been able to access my Cricut cartridges for about a year now I think.  Now I have access to thousands of images that I purchased over years.  It's been great.  I've used it a couple of times now and it's really easy to use and just love the image search.

Anywho, here is my card... 

The stars are a light blue and I've put stickles on it.  So it's coming off as diamondy instead of blueish.  :)  Yeah, these are words.  I swear it.  lol

My cloud is made from vellum.  I love the way it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to Georganne's blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made from one of my paper projects.  :)

Cookie Card Challenge - A Partridge in a Christmas Tree

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today is the cookie card challenge! I'm allowed to borrow one of my cousins cookie designs and use it to make a card. She also uses one of my card designs to make cookies! :) I saw these ADORABLE partridge cookies and knew I had to make it.  You can find her post HERE.  I also saw the red ornaments so decided to make a Christmas tree instead of a pear tree w/ these on them. 

Here is the card...

My bird originally had legs & a spiky feather at the top of her head.  I cut them both off and added a swirl to the top of my bird.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to LilaLoa to check out what she made!  Have a FABULOUS CHRISTMAS!!!
