Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card I made using the MS punch and the Wedding/Marriage cart. I love the white on white cards. I used some clear embossing powder on the top heart to give it that special bling touch.

Here is the inside. I also used the clear embossing powder to help the words pop.

It's a Party on the Card

I work with a wonderful tech guy in Atlanta who helps me out all the time. He has become a good friend and his birthday gives me an excuse to really thank him for his extra efforts with me and my merchants. Anyway, below is his birthday card. He is getting married a few days after his birthday so I wrote in the card that with the wedding coming up he was turning into a monster and so just wanted to invite a few of his friends to the party!
Here is a left side view, mostly done using mini monsters cart. The number 29 is from the Robotz cart and the Happy Birthday is from Create A Critter.
Here is a right side shot... Got'a love the glitter! Isn't it all about the bling!

Deal Pickle

My SIL's first day on the job with a company called Deal Pickle, a new soon to be live website we are all excited about for discount coupons. My DD came over in the morning and said she wanted to make a card to take to her husband. So this is what we came up with. She later text me to say one of the owners wants to buy a Cricut!! Pretty funny...

Here is the inside of the card. It is a phrase from Graphically Speaking Cart. I just loved the glitter paper on this. It just makes the card pop!

Sympathy Card - Cats

We got news a few night ago that my MIL's neighbor, Mary Lou passed away suddenly. She loved cats and we would often hear stories about them from my MIL. She was my MIL's walking companion. they would go walking every day for a mile. MaryLou was a wonderful friend and support to my MIL.

I found these cats on the A Childs Year cart and used my G to weld them to this fun frame. The paper is from SEI. It is really beautiful paper and the photo just doesn't give this card justice.

Here is the inside of the card.

Bird House - Welcome Home

Here is a card for my daughter welcoming her back to Salt Lake City. I had fun using the bird from Home Decor. I think it is my favorite bird PC has created. The bird house and green leaf behind are from the Cindy Loo cart.

Crowned with Glory

I have been sending cards to my daughter who lived in Idaho, but last weekend she moved near me so she will just have to come see me now! I am so glad to have her close by. This card was created using the Summer Vacation cart. I used Cri-Kits gel pens in my Cricut to draw the words inside the card.

Here is the inside with the gel pens.

Card Night!

I got together with a couple of girlfriends for a card night last week.  We certainly have a good time when we do this!  They humor me in my home-life rantings. We sympathize over pregnancies--the belly aches thereof and excitement of adding another bundle of joy to the family. There is usually some mention of husbands in the conversation. Giggles. Rolling of eyes. Laughter. And then the "ooohs and aaahhs" as the cards come together. 

The theme this time was seasonal miscellaneous.  That meant the sky was the limit!

Here is Rebecca's autumn card.  I'm so glad she used the SYI leaf silhouette! It is a favorite and I was hoping to find a good way to use it.  She also taught us a couple of fun distressing techniques. Thanks Rebecca!

My Christmas card: (the outside) I was thinking of New York City when I created this card.  Modern, weathered, yet traditional.  I don't know if I captured it, but I certainly put in plenty of elements!
The inside.

Rebecca's Halloween card. I liked her tri-fold idea and how she brought it together with the sleeve.  My little girl liked all the sparkles! It seems I make a Halloween card at least once a year and I can see this one will work perfectly! (That is, if I can muster up giving it away!)

Both of Katrina's cards are so elegant!  I would love to make a hundred of these and give them to all my dear friends and family.
The pearls in the deer's antlers were so pretty!
Here is Katrina's second card. I have a difficult time deciding which one I like better. This one is very classy too!  It was my first time using fabric other than ribbon in a card and I fell in love immediately.

Here is my second card. I went with an autumn theme and really wanted to learn something new. This particular technique is called "Iris Folding" It was my first time doing it and I definitely learned a few things along the way.  I will post a future blog with a tutorial to show you how to do it.  Unfortunately, I ran out of time when I was preparing for this card, so I feel like it is missing elements, but nonetheless, it was fun to try! (Thank you to my sweet friends who humored me with this card!)

Baptism Card

My nephew just got baptized so my kids and I put this card together to send to him.  We are so proud of him and wished we could have been there!

His dad was the one who baptized him, so that is why there are two people. We used velum paper to be the water.

Looking back now, I wish I would have used a gel pen to "cut in" their faces.  They look so bland!  They must have looked better in real life because I mailed it off just like this!

Here's the inside.

Autumn Wedding

I made this for my brother-in-law and his new bride. I love the square cards that SYI has! The brown paper with the creme, classic laid embossed paper made it look so elegant (and a perfect match for the autumn season). The bow got a little off kilter after being in the envelope, but I wanted to catch a picture of this card before we gave it to them.
