Stripened to Perfection

Hello everyone!

This card was made for fun. I didn't need to make a card for anyone in fact I don't know what reason I would have to give it to someone. The sentiment was cute and it fit the card perfectly so I went for it. I like making cards for fun with no one in mind to give them to. So here is how it all came together...

The base of the card was made with cardstock from Papertrey Ink called Hibiscus Burst. I love this color such a perfect pink. The pattern paper was from my scraps so I don't know what collection it's from. The daisy border was punched with my Martha Stewart daisy punches. Love them!! The Zebra was cut at three using Create a Critter. I love this cartridge!! Have I told you that before?!? The flower in is from a brad collection I bought at Hobby Lobby. I love that store!! I just wish I had one near me the closest one is and hour and a half away. The bow was made with my bow maker and the ribbon if from Walmart.

The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps and the collection goes well with the Create a Critter cartridge. I like the stamps, but I wish the collection had more card friendly sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well / Gone Fishin

Hello again,

So this is my first attempt at a masculine card. What do you think? Honestly, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. As you can tell for the most part my style is cute and girly, but I do have to restrain myself sometimes when I do my nephew's pages. Although I have been known to put a flower or two on their pages ;o). So now to the card...

The base if from Papertrey Ink in brown. The pattern paper is from DCWV stack called The Guy Stack a must have if you need a masculine card every now and then. I cut the cute sign from the Everyday Paperdolls cartridge and used my markers to bring out the cut lines. I then hand wrote "Gone Fishin". I don't normally use my handwriting on a card or scrapbook page because I think I have terrible handwriting, but I thought the sign needed something. Now that I look at it I don't think my handwriting is that bad...right? All I can say is if you are worried about how your handwriting take your time and practice..practice..practice! Now, the fishing pole was cut using the "Just Because" cartridge. It may not be layered right, but hey it looked good to me :o) I added a google eye to the fish and because it look so real I was tempted to write "don't eat me", but I didn't.

I hope you like my card for today, thanks for stopping by!

Get Whale Soon


Here is a card I made for a friend's son who was having surgery. It's always sad when little kids have to have surgery, but he is doing well so that's a blessing!

The card base is from Stampin Up. The rest of the card was made using scraps from Stampin Up paper sorry I don't recall the colors. I purchased some Stampin Up paper from someone on Craigslist and she gave me her scraps so they have come in handy when cutting out images with the Cricut. I'm sure if you are a Stampin Up fan you can figure out the colors :o). The Get Whale Soon was printed on card stock and punched out using the large heart punch from Stampin Up. The bow was tied with my bow maker (love that thing!!) The ribbon is random from the Dollar Tree.

So a quick and simple card made using my FAVORITE cartridge Create a Critter! The images are so cute and a must have for any Cricut lover!

Two page layout "Are you ready 2 play"

I'm sorry the photo is so dark. I am working on getting better equipment to take better pictures so keep a look out for that. This layout was for my nephew Cooper. He was playing when the photos were taken and by the way they were super cute pictures of him. Sorry don't mean to tease!
The background paper used was from a paper collection I bought super cheap at abcdistributing. If you can catch them with scrapbooking supplies you can find some great deals. Anywho...the letters were cut from my Learning Curve Cricut Cartridge. The ribbon used was from Michaels. I thought the ribbon was really cute with the flowers printed on them, but when I got home I found out it was really stiff and hard to tie. So it worked out using it this way and the colors matched perfectly. The flowers used where from a set I also bought at abcdistributing. Gotta love!
So I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

We are missing you!

Hi everyone,
This card was made for a friend. It was a quick and simple card as you can tell from the post!
The stamp I used is from The Greeting Farm if it is still in stock you can find it in the clearance section. I used a Chocolate Chip Stampin Up Craft Pad and UTEE to emboss the image. Then I used my beloved Stampin Up markers to color in the image. The boarder punch is also from Stampin Up. The Sentiment used was from a CTMH TLC stamp set. The paper used was scraps left over from different collection. I always love when my scraps come together to make a card!
As you can see it was quick and simple. If you have any questions please leave a comment.
