I just got my mom into Card Making not to long ago. She got a Baby Bug =). I'm so excited to show her new things. I was at her house and i was showing everyone how to use it. She has so much less crafting products than I do. This is what I came up with just to demonstrate. I also luckily had Esmerelda with me, so that helped a lot.
I used Twinkle Toes for the card base and the first layer. I think the Cherries are from Indie Art. I wanted to put faces on the cherries but she didn't have anything like that. (I should fix that, LOL) Just Simple but it's cute!
These are 2 cards that I made for my cousins birthday. The first one is a Gatefold and the second is regular. This is my second Gatefold card Ive made and I love them. They are so cute!! This past weekend I went to a double Birthday Party, it was fun!
Thanks for Stopping By, Come back for our blog hop March 2 and in-between for fun stuff!!
Alright, It's almost here!!! On March 2 I will have started my blog exactly a year ago. I love blogging and be able to see everyones creations and show mine off. I have gotten to see so many wonderful blogs out there!! I want to thank everyone who visits me and leaves comments; I just love them!!
We are having a Spring Themed Blog Hop on March 2, 2011. This is going to be so much fun you wont want to miss it!!! There is a fantastic lineup going on here. Here is it...
I have been trying to play catch-up to finish our 2010 Scrapbook album. It isn't working... I am still so far behind. I am slowly making a dent. I wanted to make a Layout of the first time we went Camping in a Tent. It was an adventure I have to say. We couldn't get a fire the first night and had a hole in our tent so we got all wet. Then we bought an air mattress and didn't realize we had to charge it first... WOW! It was crazy. We made the best of it though and had fun! Here is the Layout I made for it,
How I did it:
The pan and smore are stickers
Fire @ 3.5 (Create A Critter)
Words @ 2 (Don Juan)
Its pretty easy. Im not sure what the paper is I cut the bottom off before looking at it.
My First Spring Card... I'm so happy!! I have been thinking that I needed to get on making Spring Cards since out weather here has been weird. Just today we had snow, hail, rain and Sun; in a 5 minute period. WEIRD!!!
I was making this card for the Peachy Keen Challenge this week and I came across that I also works for a few other challenges as well. Paper Cutz Challenge is to make something using Bee's, Butterfly's or Ladybug's. Then for Fantabolous Cricut the Challenge was to make something featuring your favorite seasonal weather.
5 1/4 x 5 1/4 base with Kraft Cardstock
5 x 5 layer
Circle cut @ 5" then cut in half (Plantin Schoolbook)
Thank You all for joining us today for this very fun and exciting Valentine's Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Kara's Blog.

I made 2 projects for the hop today. My first project is a Layout I made for Valentine's Day. I am hoping to just add my pictures when I get them done. Everything was made using the Sweethearts Cartridge.
Here is the recipe for the Layout:
Tree @ 9.10"
Couple @ 7"
Cupid @ 4"
Sweethearts @ 2.5" including shadow
Strips @ 4"
Photo Mats are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 and 4 x 5 1/4
I got the paper from the Dollar Spot at Target a while ago. It's pretty nice weight.
The next project I have for you is a Gatefold Card. It is my first one I have ever made so I am really excited about it.
I also got the patterned paper for this in the Dollar Spot at Target and they were in a pack that was cut at 5 x 7 for you already.
Card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
2 1/2 x 4 cut twice for the front panel flaps
Scallop Circle @ 3.5"
Circle @ 2.90"
Lips @ 2"
Inside Mat is 5 1/4 x 4
Thank You so much for stopping by!!! I'm so excited you could make it.
Don't forget that next Saturday February 12, 2011 there is going to be a Valentines Blog Hop that I am apart of. There are so many talented people in this hop. I am excited to share what I have made. The hop starts at Princess and the Paper. You are going to love what she has in store for you!!
I also made this card for grandma's friend. I am on a roll with finishing these cards. I only have 2 more to make. Her friend placed an order so that is what all the birthday cards are for.
I used Once Upon A Princess Cartridge for this one and the stamp is from the dollar bins at JoAnns. I used my Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots for the background. I just realized that I still need to put blush on her cheeks and doodle around the hair.
I just made this card tonight to give to my grandma's friend. I really like the way it turned out. Its not a card layout that I normally do. I'm impressed with it.
I used 3 birds on parade for the card, cut at 3 1/2 I think. I used pop-dots on the back of the bird and then also used them on the back of the pink paper. I just got the stamp from Craft Warehouse. It is made by Stampendous. I think this stamp will go for any bird you make on any cartridge.
I just got done making my puppy her own blanket. She loves my tie blanket, so I just made her one and she loves it!! She also has a little pillow and I had extra fabric so I made her a tie pillow as well. They turned out so cute!!! I love them!
She has not been feeling well. She was up this morning sick and has been acing weird all day so we are just snuggling today :)
I made this card today for my sister to give to her boyfriend. She didn't want anything that said Love on it. So we came up with "Everyday you make my world a little brighter". Kinda cheesy, but I like it. They have been dating for 4 months, so i think this works for valentines day.
I used Create A Critter and cut the sun at 3". I used Esmerelda to hide the face of the sun so I could use my adorable Peachy Keen Face Stamps. The hearts are cut from Once Upon A Princess at all different sizes. Then I took my corner rounder and did both bottom corners.
I am 27 years old. I love Crafts!! I am an EMT and craft when I can. I am getting Married in the near future to the love of my life, I have been with for 11 years. We just had our first baby in January of 2012 and second in April 2013. Two beautiful little boys!!
