Live the life you...

I just realized today that I forgot to post this card to my blog.  I made the card over the summer as a gift for a graduation party.  No, the card wasn't the only gift, a gift card was inside. Here is a picture of the inside. 

I just love the Gift Card Holder from My Creative Time, it has come in handy so many times!  Perfect for those moments you don't have time to shop for a gift so you just grab a gift card instead.  All of the stamps and dies for the inside of the card as well as the sentiment on the front are from My Creative Time. 

The purple flowers on the front are from I am  The blue flowers are from Michael's. All the flowers were white until I colored them with Lindy's sprays.  The white roses in the corner I made myself using clay.

That about covers it.  Thanks for stopping by!  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Make a Splash

What a summer!  I have neglected my little blog and for the next few days I plan on showing it some much needed love.  Even though I have not posted cards in a while it doesn't mean I haven't been hard at work making them.  Anyway moving onto the invitations I made for a friend.  She was having a pool party for her daughter and asked if I would make invitations.  I was really nervous at first, but I think she was really pleased. 

I used three different Cricut Cartridges Life is a Beach, 3 Birds on Parade and Everyday Paperdolls.  The fish I used on the boys version of the invitation as well as the flip flops and flower used on the bathing suit or the girls version were purchased at Michael's.  I used dew drops as bubbles coming from the fishes mouth on the boys invitation.  The flowers in the top right corner on the girls invitation are from I am

Hold Tight To Memories...

Hi everyone!  I am on a roll!  I wish I could post this often, but I just don't have the time.  I am working on making the time, but its a process. So my mom asked me to make a card for a coworker that lost her mother.  She is still on leave so I hope when she returns she likes it.

The card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The patten paper is from a 6x6 Basic Grey stack I forget the name.  The sentiment is from MCT (Emma).  The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.  Now to the flowers, they're what I'm most excited about.  The large flowers are from a new die from Emma, which I LOVE!!  If you don't have it, you MUST get it!!
Here is a close up of the flowers.  Can you tell what I used to make them?  Believe it or not I used coffee filters.  I colored them with my Lindy's sprays and placed a pearl in the center.  I think they turned out great!  I used the cone filters so when I die cut them it cut in two pieces.  So with two pieces I was able to make a fuller flower.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  The leaves and other roses are from

I think that about covers it!  I hope you like what you see!  Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats on Your New Arrival

Hello everyone!  I made this card for a friends baby shower :o).  I really like how this one turned out.  It had been a while since making a card or scrapbook page.  So, it was nice to get back into the hobby I love.

The base of the card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 my new favorite size, it gives me more room to play.  I used patten paper from a 6x6 paper stack sorry I don't recall the name.  The stamp in the corner is from Emma's stamp line along with the die.  The roses in the top left corner I made using clay.  I really love how they turned out and they are very cheap to make!  The flowers in the bottom corner are from  The flourishes coming out of the cluster of flowers and the fence across the bottom are from 

Well, that about covers it!  Thanks for stopping by, feel free to comment or contact me with any questions.

You are the best!

I made this card for a friend that made me a scarf. Since I am not a knitter I really appreciate people that are and make me cute comfy things :o)

The card base is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 (my favorite size) in fine linen by Papertrey Ink. The ribbon trim across the bottom I bought at Hobby Lobby (my favorite store) and if you can believe it, it was white so I used my starburst sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang in Gregarious Grey and Midnight Rendezvous Raven to color it to match my project. I then put some clay roses I made using a mold from Mold Muse on Etsy. The patten background paper is from Graphic 45 it is from their Le Romantique Collection. The rosette flower I made with the help of my Martha Stewart Score Board. The pattern paper is from an old DCWV 8x8 (i think) stack I had in my collection. The scallop in the center is from a die for Emma's collection. The ribbon buckle I purchased on ebay and the flat back pearl is from Sacrafters in 14mm. The leaves I cut using a Tim Holtz die with canvas material and colored with LSG Midnight Rendezvous Raven. The sentiment I used is from Emma's set My Favorite Sayings as well as her die Fancy Frame. The patten paper strip is from the same DCWV stack and I accented it with a Martha Stewart border punch.

I think that about covers it. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thanks for stopping by!
