Not a Winter Card - Heart Bouquet

Hi Crafters and Bakers! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge. I was looking through Georgeanne's cookie blog, LilaLoa, trying to decide on a cookie to remake into a card. I decided on a Valentines theme because I am already over Winter.  I am definitely looking forward to a little warmer weather and a color other than grey.  :)  Plus, my favorite color is Red so it was a no brainer for me.  :)

Here is the cookie that I chose to recreate.  I'm not going to lie, I can't remember if I've already recreated this one before or not but it spoke to me so I didn't care.  lol  You can find her blog post on these cookies HERE.

Here is the card that I made.  It's a long card which works perfectly with this design.  My only thing I wish I changed is adding more stems and having them more "loose" looking.  But all in all I love it.

I love the DCWV glitter yardstick.  It is so shiny and pretty.  :)  Here is a side view:

I also added a frame and heart in the inside:

Thanks for stopping by!  This was a simple card but it was a lot of fun and I love it.  :)  Be sure to stop by Georgeanne's blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made.

Warm Winter Wishes Mittens - Cookie Card Challenge

Hi Crafters and Bakers! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge. This is where I got permission to steal a design from my cousins cookie blog, LilaLoa, to help me design a card and vice versa. :)

The cookies that I have based my card off of are these adorable mitten cookies.  You can find her blog post HERE on how she made them.

Here is my simple card based off those cookies:

Sorry the images are so dark.  I took them late last night w/ my phone.

Special Happy Birthday Card

Hi Crafters and Bakers! Today I made a card off of some cookies my cousin made.

So what makes this a Special birthday card? The cookies I chose are from the COVER of her COOKIE BOOK!!! How AWESOME is that???? Here is the cover:

You can also buy her book, which is a Top 5 cookie book w/ Amazon by the way, on her blog:

Here is the card that I made off of those cookies:

It's a simple card but I thought turned out cute.  I still feel like there is still too much white space but I didn't know what else to add.  Maybe I should have chosen a designer paper for the background instead of all white.  Next time...  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall, Pumpkin! - Cookie Card Challenge

Happy Fall Crafters & Bakers! Today is the cookie card challenge. It's the day that helps me craft each month. I've been in a bit of a crafting lull. I have done some cards but haven't posted them on my blog yet. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Anyway...

If you aren't familiar with this challenge I choose one of my cousins cookies, LilaLoa, to make a card off of and she chooses one of my paper craft projects to make a cookie. The following are the cookies I'm making my card off of. I just love the wavy lines, colors, and spaces in between everything. It's a classy looking pumpkin.  You can find more about her post HERE.

Here is the card that I made based on those cute pumpkins.  It's a simple card but it's perfect for a friend, neighbor, etc type of card.  I used a banner cut to slice the pumpkin in two so it would have the curve like her pumpkin cookies.

Be sure to stop by my cousins blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made!

Daisies in a Jar - Cookie Card Challenge

Hi Crafters and Bakers!  Today is the Cookie Card Challenge!  My favorite crafting day of the month. I love it because it helps me to craft each month. :)  I saw some awesome Summer cookies that LilaLoa made and fell in love w/ the daisies in a mason jar cookie.  So cute!  I thought they would be perfect for a thank you, friend, thinking of you type of card.

Here is my interpretation of that cookie.  It was pretty simple but I love the simplicity of them because they are the perfect for the whatever occasion card.

My mom loved the card so much that she asked if I could make 3 more cards in different colors for the ladies she works with.  

Here are the summer cookies that LilaLoa made and you can see her post HERE.

Aren't those fun?  Make sure you head on over to Georganne's website, LilaLoa, to check out what cookies she made based off of one my card designs.

Thanks for stopping by!
