Newest additon

If you've been wondering where I've been, he's here!  Our little guy arrived the end of December weighing a mere 8 pounds 10 ounces. He truly is a bundle of joy and we're so blessed to have him in our family.

It's taken some time to get back into life, especially since he came so close to Christmas.  But slowly I've been organizing. I've unburried my sewing machine and Cricut from beneath all my projects.  We're not sleeping through the night yet, but I'm anxious to be creative again!

Gift set

I have the sweetest neighbor.  She's so good to always have a gift for each of my children for the holidays. I've been wanting to do a little gift set of homemade cards for her for sometime now.  While I was preparing for my son's Kindergarten Christmas party, on a whim I decided to make some gift cards for his two teachers. While I was at it, I made some for my neighbor too.  They are pretty simple (I've been doing a lot of "simple" being 9 months pregnant.), but I think they turned out nicely.

Christmas: Cuttlebug embossing folders. Joys of the Season cart for the gift.

Birthday: I did two of these. So you will see two different fronts, but the inside was the same for both.




Baby: Cuttlebug embossing folders. New Arrivals for the buggie. I did one each of blue and pink for these.



Fancy Nancy

Back in November I threw my daughter a Fancy Nancy birthday party.

The Thank You card we made for each little girl who attended was made by my sweet 4 year old.  She painted the cards, then I cut out the crown from the Celebration's cart, glued, glittered and delivered! I thought they all turned out so cute and each was personalized by her!



Christmas Thank You

I made a whole slew of these as "thank yous" for some very talented people at church. They helped with the Christmas party, so my card went along with the Holiday season. The front (top) was cut with the card feature on Joys of the Season cart. The embossing is a Cuttlebug folder, The inside, (below) has the quote pasted on top of the cutout from the front.

Christmas Class Party

All 24 kindergarteners received one of these festive holiday treat bags at my son's Christmas class party..  The tree was cut 4" I believe from Stretch Your Imagination.

Since I knew they would just get devoured, then thrown out, I didn't put a lot of detail into them.  I did do a bit more with a two-toned sillouette look for the teacher.

The party was fun and the kids loved their bags!

Let it Snow!

I made this card for a friend to give to his wife. He gave her an Expressions and so I wanted to show off what fun things it can do. I had fun playing dressups with these cute little snowpeople!

Winter Wonderland

I used one of those darling snowmen from Winter Wonderland and that cute squirrel. I also used the snowflake MS punch for the corners and the snowflake embossing folder for the back ground.
Here is a card I made for my sister and husband for Christmas.

Christmas Card Give Aways

This year for Christmas I made a bunch of cards and gave them away as gifts. Here is a group of them for you to enjoy!

This red card was heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give a shiny gloss to the flourishes.

A card made from StoryBook cart and Stampin Up paper. It was Cuttlebugged with Swiss Dots folder too.

This is a simple Sympathy Card using an embossing folder and Cuttlebugged.

This is a stamped image that I used water color crayons from Stampin Up and then took my blending pen and colored in the fruit.

This is a shape from Accent Essentials that was then Cuttlebuged with the circles folder and touched up with some brown chalk.

This is a copy of a Donna Mundinger creation.

This is a shape card from StoryBook. I had to give the dots some bling and a colorful bow to make the card pop!

Just a simple cards using than embossing folder.

Here is the inside of the card.
