Easter Dress

I bet most of you think I just paper craft, but don't be shocked to see a sewing or crochet project shown every once in a while! I wanted to make an Easter Dress for my only grand daughter. There is this fabulous fabric store called Material Girls that I went to and found this cute pattern by Pink Fig. As we were measuring out the fabric I realize there was enough to make two dresses! I have an adopted grand daughter who lives next door. She is 18 months. So I make the 2T dress for her shown below first. It is so big she won't be able to wear it until next year! Oh well...
Back of dress


Here is another card sent to my daughters. We have fun sending each other cards. I have been wanting to make an Owl card.
This was an owl from Give A Hoot cart. The back ground is the SU background that I watermark stamped and then heat embossed it with clear powder.
It "raised the grain" on the tree trunk and gave it a great glossy shine.

Happy Birthday Andi!

It was my daughter-in-law's birthday the end of March and this is the card I made for her... She is such a gem, a true treasure in our lives, not to forget to mention as well a wonderful mother to our grandson and supportive wife to my son. We celebrate her good and joyous life, for all she has accomplished and still yet to do.

This card is on dark gray with white embossing from SU. You can't see it but around the boarder is more flourish stamping, but with a watermark. Inside is another butterfly with watermark stamping. The butterflies were cut from Wall Decor. I learned that if you cut them on low pressure and multicut they turned out beautifully.

Ticket to Love

I sent this card to my daughers a few weeks back. It was a way I could express my love to them. I used "Just the Ticket" from PaperTrey Inc. I also found a card that was similar to this for some inspiration.
Here is the inside. I used the SU set called Well Scripted for the sentiment.

The best part about sending cards is the telephone call I get that says,
" Mom I got your card today!"

Happy Birthday Grandson

Another birthday for a sweet grandson! He turned 4!

I used a zig zag punch out of a bunch of different colors. Made a frame and wove the strips together. I cut the robot out placed it on top. Fun and colorful for a 4 year old. I said in the card that the robot had as many hands as he was old! He had a smile on his face as he counted the hands!

Pin the Caboos on the Engine!

It was our grandson's birthday in January and his theme was trains. There were about 20 cousins and small friends who all played the game pin the caboos on the engine. I made the train from the Micky Mouse cart and put numbers on all the cabooses so each would know what number they had and could tell who was the winner. It was a lot of fun!

Sunday School Cards

I teach the 12 and 12 year old's in Sunday School. Each week after the lesson is over I give them a card that has all the points of interest we talked about, some scriptures and quotes. Here are some of the cards I have made for them.
This lesson was on the 3 kingdoms of Glory. The Sun is the Celestial Kingdom, the Moon is the Terrestrial and the Stars are the Telestial. 1 Corinthians 15:40-42
Here is an illustration of how the spirit leaves the body after death.
This lesson was on Adversity. It teaches that it is not always bad, often there is a silver lining that comes from our trials. Isn't that the reason we are here on earth?
This lesson was what we need to do to prepare to meet God.
Isn't is great that families can be together forever?

This lesson was on loving our brothers and sisters - inside it says "Best Friends". It was given around Christmas time so the tree cutting by a brother and sister was a great cut for this card. It was from A Child's Year cart.
This card represents the goal to be married in the temple for all eternity, not just until death. I used Stretch Your Imagination cart.
This lesson was about home.
A commandment, Honor thy Father and Thy Mother .

This was a book that explained all about the Plan of Salvation.

This was a lesson being Clean. There was a great story told about the snapping turtle that didn't like to be caught, but with a board with bent nails the turtles would catch their fins on the board and would not be able to get away. We talked about how Satan is like the board ready to catch us if we let him.

Family History - I used the new cuddlebug embossing frame and computer generated the words. The tree is from Heritage cart.
This lesson was on Adam and Eve... could you guess! It is the apple from preserves. I used my scallop SU punch to take a bite out of the apple!

This lesson was on Agency. I wanted to show black/white /gray so they would understand their ability to make their own choices. It was all generated in the Gypsy.

It's A Boy!

I recently went to a baby shower and made this cute little 5X3.5 card. New size for me but I really liked it.

Used Create A Critter Alligator cut at 1.5 inches. I hand cut my mound of dirt and put a few clumps of grass. Used a little brown chalk ink to make them all look a little "dirty"! I love those Peachy Keen faces on the sun.

February Birthdays

Both my husband and my oldest son's birthdays are on February 8th! It is fun to celebrate them together.
This first card is for may husband. If is from Nifty Fifties cart. There is a lot of bling with shiny and sparkle paper.
This is the inside.

This is my son's birthday card. He likes sports. I used the Boys Will Be Boys cart for the ball. I think when I took this picture I was still figuring out the corners. I think the final card just had black corners. I love how the cuttlebug worked its magic on the ball!
Here is the inside of the card.
