Mother's Day Card

Here is a Mother's Day card that I made for my Grandmother. Her favorite color is purple, and she loves the Victorian look. Hope you enjoy!

Wedding Invitaions

One of my close friends has practically set the date, so I decided to play around and see what kind of wedding invitaions I could come up with. And this is what I came up with. I used K and Company Brown and Pink Paper, and used my Cricut to cut out the monogrammed M from the Storybook Cartridge. I also inked the Pearl piece of paper.

Eater Stair Step

This is an Easter Card that I made for my Grandparents


I am using this set of 4 "Thank you" cards as a giveaway to the 25 follower of my new blog! Hope you enjoy...

Cuttlebug spot Challange

This is a card that I made for

We had to celebrate their colors.

Instructions for bow

Supplies Needed: 12x12 card stock( I prefer double sided)
hole punch
2 buttons or brads
18 inches of ribbon
Paper trimmer

Step 1: You are going to need to cut 12 strips of paper. 4 at 1x12, 4 at 3/4x11, and 4 at 1/2x10.
You will also need a a strip at 1x6

Step 2: Fold into desired loop, you are just doing this to get an idea of where you want to punch your holes.

Step 3: You are going to want to punch holes all the way through each loop. I use my making memories hand punch, but any punch will work.I punch the first one as a guide, and then overlap it onto the other strips it size. You will also need to punch a hole into the smaller piece, but this hole doesn't need to be on the top as well. ( so instead of having three holes in it, it will only have two)

Step 4: You are going to thread your ribbon through your button. This is going to be on the inside of your small loop.This is what holds your ribbon together.

Step 5: Start to thread your other loops, starting with the smallest loops first. You also want the top to be threaded first. Continue this until you have thread them all.

Step6: You will need to add a button to the bottom, this helps keep the loops in their place.

Step7: Fluff to desired look.

Bow made out of Paper

This is a bow that I made back at Christmas. It is made with Stampin Up paper.

Easel Card

Here is an Easel Card that I have made.I used the zebra print DCWV cardstock, it is cut at 3 3/4x 3 3/4. The base is just white cardstock. Its 4x8, and then it is scored at 2, and 4 inches. Then the turquoise cardstock is cut at 4x4. Then the bottom turquoise is at 2 x4, and the black is 1 3/4x 3 3/4, the circle's are 2, 1 1/4 inches, and the heart is 1 inch, cut from Plantin Schoolbook from Cricut.

Joy Fold cards

These are some Joy Fold cards that I have made. On the "forever" card, I used the sweethearts and the home accents cartridges. Then on the "orange" card, I made a fan fold flower. I also used the Martha Stewart punch on both cards.

Easter wreath

This is an Easter wreath that I made for my grandparents. I used bight colors for the roses. I used stickels on the orange and pink roses. on the green roses I used by cuttlebug, and on the purple and blue roses I used rhinestones.

My Brother- My Marine

My younger brother is a proud Marine, and my family has everything that they can own that states that. I had gone to the dentist with my mother and was playing with my new Canon DSLR, and I wanted the front focus and background blurred, and I was just taking random pictures. But I managed to catch this shot. All tho everything is dirty in the picture, it has became one of my favorites.

Tri-shutter cards

These are a few different tri-shutter cards that I have made.If you are interested in any of the details let me know.This style card is one of my favorites. I tend to only doctor them up, i leave the main sentiments til the very end.

Lori's sweet 16

My best friend's little sister Lori was having her sweet 16th birthday. I being the crafty person that I am volunteered to make her a banner(lol). I had so much fun doing this. I took the Storybook Cartridge and made all of my cuts with it. I did the back ground as a base and as a shadow. I inked the base with black acrylic paint. Then I did all of my letters in neon colors, to go with the 80's theme. I also used glittered neon brads to go with it.

Sister-in-laws wreath

My sister-in-law is getting married, so I wanted to make her something special.So I did a monogram of M(for Megan), J(for Josh), and S( for Smith). I was very happy with the way this turned out. I used hot pink, light pink, off white, and orange flowers.I backed it on a black circle, and then on white paper, and for stability I put it on chipboard. I painted the chipboard with a copper colored acrylic ink.

Rose's for my Sister-in-laws picture

I made these flowers for my sister-in-law. I did orange, hot pink, light pink, and off white flowers. More pics to come of the finished project!
