Princess Jewel Birthday

Hello Crafters! First off, Happy New Year!  Today I want to share a card I made for my niece's birthday. She is a total princess that loves dinosaurs! lol She cracks me up. She even oohs and aahs over clothes. She's 4. :) So I went all out and made the most flashiest princess card ever. I'm sure that was proper English. ;)

Merry Christmas to You!

Merry Christmas! I wanted to share the two Christmas cards that I made recently. This first one I made for my vet & my puppies groomer. I LOVE this one. I'm thinking about making another one to frame and put it out as one of my Christmas decorations.

It's hard to see but I put Diamond Stickles on the bottom snow to make it sparkle like fresh snow.

This next one was super simple but turned out cute.  It was my Christmas card I made for my boss.

 That one is also great for mailing out because it has no bulky layers.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a Wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Noel Card

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. I make one of her cookie designs into a card and she makes one of my card designs into a cookie.  One of my favorite days of the month.  :)  I was needing a quick Christmas card and saw this cookie and thought it would be perfect.  I changed the colors a bit to use traditional Christmas colors.  Here is her cookie, you can see her post HERE.

Here is my take on the card:

The only thing I'm not a fan of is that I wished I made it into a square shaped card.  I think it would have been more balanced looking, like her cookie.

To make the stripes I cut 1/2" strips and laid them on the base cut and glued them down then trimmed around the base cut and it matches the cut easily!  :)  I added some Diamond stickles on the stripes and the letters to give it more pizazz. 

Be sure to check out Georgannes blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made off of one of my designs!  I can't wait myself.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Zombie Birthday

My nephew loves zombies. I guess they are the thing right now.  :)  I found this cut at the Silhouette store and thought it was perfect. I didn't want to make it bloody gross so I kept it simple. He loved it. Super simple boy card...

To make the stripes in the background I embossed the white cardstock w/ the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder then lightly ran the blank ink pad over the embossed area.

 The perfect boys card.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall Leaves

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. I'm lucky enough to steal one of her cookie designs and make it into a card and she takes one of my cards and makes it into a cookie.  Super Fun!

I was looking through her Thanksgiving cookies and saw these super cute leaves I knew I wanted to recreate them. 

 Seriously, how cute are those???  :)  To see her post on these cookies go HERE.  And here is my take on these cookies:

Framed Silhouette Pet Images

Hi Crafters!   Today's project is a gift for my friend.  My friend watched my dogs while I was at my sisters wedding.  It was for 5 days.   She also has 2 dogs and a cat so she had 5 pets with her.  My dogs I'm sure had a blast hanging out w/ her and her other 2 dogs and had fun torturing her cat.   lol :)   I wanted to give her a little something as a thank you.  I was SO grateful that they were with her instead of in a kennel.  It was a relief for me and I knew I didn't have to worry about them.  So I found this image of this framed silhouette dog and wanted to try to recreate it:

I loved it but it cost over $200.  Definitely couldn't pay for that so I thought I would make my own.  I thought I could put strips of ribbon behind my silhouettes and get a similar look.  What happened was I put the silhouette in the frame to protect it while I searched for the right ribbon and fell in love w/ the simple look and thought it would work perfectly.  The background color is from the back of the frame.

The cuts come from the Silhouette store.  The little corner design is from a damask design, it's the tip of the cut.  The frames are 10"x10".  The paper is just plain old white cardstock.  :)

For delivery I wrapped a thick blue ribbon around it:

She loved it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Scariest Mask Ever!

Hi Crafters! Happy Halloween! Today Glora and I are doing our cut challenge. This month I chose the Bigfoot cut from the Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge.   I've been wanting to do this cut for a while but couldn't figure out what to use it for.  Found it!  :)  I thought of this idea the other night and was hoping it would turn out.  It turned out like I planned and love it!

So fun!  Be sure to head on over to Glora's blog to see how she used this same cut.  Can't wait to see how it turned out!  :)

Cookie Card Challenge: Flying Witches!

Hello Bakers and Crafters! Today Georgeanne and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. Which means I'm lucky enough to snag one of her cookies and use it as inspiration for one my cards.   :)  October is quite the Halloween month so I chose one of her Halloween cookies.  Here are her cookies:

You can see her blog post HERE on these cookies.

Here is my take on the cookies:

I swear the color of the hair is a neon green.  lol  For the background, I used the spiderweb Cuttlebug Embossing folder then rubbed a black ink pad across it to make it stand out even more.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to Georgeanne's blog, LilaLoa, to see what she made of mine.  Can't wait!  :)

Happy Fall Weather

Hi Crafters! Sorry my post is late, I was thinking it was for another day. Need to get my days straight! :) Today Glora and I are doing our Cricut Cut Challenge. Glora chose this adorable girl w/ an umbrella cut from the new Create a Friend cartridge. I LOVE this cartridge! So much fun stuff on here. Here is my take on this cut:

Cookie Card Challenge: A Whatever Man Card

Hi Bakers and Crafters! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge which means I'm lucky enough to steal one of my cousins cookie designs and make it in to a card. I love these days because it gives me inspiration on what to make. Fun! :) This is what I recommend to crafters that are having a loss of mojo in crafting, find another creator online that makes something other than paper crafts and use one of their designs to inspire you. I highly recommend Georganne's blog, LilaLoa. She is AMAZING! :)

Here are these darling school cookies she made.  I loved the antique globe and thought it would be a great man card.  Here is her design, you can find her post HERE:

 Here is the card I made:
