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.

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. This card would be perfect as an invitation!

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
