Lots of Cards

I have been very busy making cards! I have recently discovered Kristina Werner's blog and I am in love with it! She has weekly videos of cards she walks everyone through and they are super cute. Between her blog and Kerry's Paper Crafting Blog, I have been completely inspired to create some cute cards.

These cards are just a start and I plan to make sets with matching envelopes and boxes to hold them all in and sell them on my Etsy site! Stay tuned for those...but in the mean time, here are the cards I have created so far

Here is another Onsie Advice Book I recently made for an On-Line Order!

Birthday Card - Finished!

Here is the finished birthday card. I used the same purple paper to add the sentiment that was computer generated. I thought it needed something else to it so I added the bling to the sentiment and at the bottom to adorn the lace punch! I think it turned out really cute and just a tad different from Kerry's!

Paisley Card

This is a card I am working on for a Co-Worker's birthday that is coming up! I used the idea Kerry posted on her blog but she used Damasks Stamps. I instead chose a nice paisley design to compliment this card. The boarder punch is form Martha Stewart. Kerry uses a thicker ribbon on her card but I like the simplicity of the small thin ribbon, I really like the way it's just an accent and doesn't take away from the stamped background, not that Kerry's card isn't wonderful! :) The card is still unfinished so will post the finished picture tomorrow. You can see Kerry's card here!

Paperbag Album in Premade Album

I made this album for my hubby for Valentines Day. I used Kathy's idea that I saw over on her blog...I love Kathy Orta's blog Paper Phenomenon and she made a paper bag album that she added to a pre-made leather album that I just fell in love with. Of course, I had to make my own version of one and here it is? If you want directions on how to make this album, click here.

These last two photos show the extra journaling space sheets that are inserted into the paper bags. I just added photos of different times and on the backs journaled about that photo. The other two sheets have lyrics to our favorite songs from back in the day!

This was a really fun album to create! Thanks Kathy!

Welcome Little One Card

This is a card I made for a cousin who just had a baby boy! I love the Coredinations paper! I ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss it and then sanded it while still in the folder to keep its shape. The sentiment is computer generated.

Hope you like it!

1st Birthday Card

Hi Everyone. I cannot believe it has been one month since I last updated my blog. I have been busy working on lots of projects so will have lots of stuff to post soon! On top of all that, I have really started my twins' baby books as they will be 2 this July and cannot put it off any longer!

I created this card for a dear friend's son who just celebrated his 1st birthday last week! I got the idea from Kerry on a quilted look for the top note cut. You can see her card here! This is just my take on the card. I used a sheet of card stock around the same size as the Top Note die cut from Stampin Up. I then used my handy dandy square punch to punch out different patterned paper to create the "quilt" look. I then glued them all down and ran my paper and die through my cuttlebug to cut the shape. I also cut another top note in a darker shade to mat the cut out. Add a bit of ribbon and the scallop tag with a computer generated sentiment and voila! I also inked the edges of the card with Momento Ink!

Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Shower Advice Book

Hi Everyone! Here is another Baby Shower Advice Book I just got done making and is ready to be shipped out to his lucky owner! The book was an Etsy order that was a custom request. The mommy to be is having a boy but isn't using the traditional boy colors. This was browns, greens, and organges. The inside pages are those colors!

I hope she loves it!
