Music to My Ears

Hi Crafters! One of my neighbors sons was having his first piano recital and he invited my nephew to be there.  My nephew asked me to make him a congrats card for his friend.  So I wanted to make something simple and fun.  I searched on my Gypsy for musical notes and I found these on the Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge.  I cut them out at 3.6".  I then cut out 1/2" strips to make them my music sheet lines.  To make it more fun and kid like I embossed my white cardstock w/ the Cuttlebug Spots & Dots embossing folder.  I LOVE this embossing folder for kids, especially for boys.  Here's the project:

You can better see the embossing on the side view:

I was going to make a video for this one but I'm still sick and didn't want to have sneezing, coughing, stuffy sounding and blowing my nose on video.  ;)  Also, I feel like I've seen a few of this style of project but not sure where.  So if you have done this type of project and I've seen it, thanks for the inspiration.  Sorry I can't give kudos to you.  You can link your blog in the comments section if you have. 

There is a giveaway for this challenge.  Details are on the challenge blog HERE.  Also, make sure you stop by Glora's blog to see her project and how she made it.

Cookie & Card Challenge - Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Time for the Cookie & Card challenge with Georganne and I.   I decided to get ahead of the game, for me, and make our Thanksgiving place cards.  Georganne made these so cute cookie place cards and I decided to go off her design for them.  This is her project:

To see how she made her cookies go HERE.  Here is my project that I made off those cookies:

The place card size is 3.5" x 2.5".  The white cardstock is 3.25" x 2.25".  The pumpkins I cut with my Silhouette and they are about 2.25" tall.  To make it more designed for the person on the card I embossed the pumpkin with a folder that reminded me of them.  The fancy swirls for my mom, funky polka dots for my nephew, and the grid for my brother.

Here is a pic of the side of the place card:
Here is a pic of the back of the place card:
I glued down a strip of green paper that is 3.25" x 2.25" and folded it in half to create the ledge for it to lean on.

To see what Georganne made of one of my paper creations go to her blog: LilaLoa
