Copic Markers

Okay, so I did it, I dove into the expensive world of Copic markers. I'm not much of a stamper, I'm more of a cricuter, but I discovered The Greeting Farm stamps and fell in love. I purchased this digital stamp and bought only 6 Copic ciao colors, just to see what I thought, and..... I'M IN LOVE!!!! I still need to work on my technique, but man, these things are amazing! Both girls are colored with the SAME 6 markers, I just placed them differently and shaded differently. Now I'm ready to go buy more!

Older Create a Critter projects

These are some older cuts that I did with the Create A Critter. I came across these and figured I would post them.

Birthday Card

This is a birthday card that I made for my mother in law. The paper is from a digital pack that I purchased from Etsy. I used the 3 candle from ACY, and I made 3, one for each grandchild.

Graduation Invite

This is a non tradional Graduation Invite, that I am making for a family friend, all of the cuts are from "life's a party"

Here are some samples of Baby Shower invites that I made for a co-worker. She is having a little boy and she asked me to make her invites. She chose the first one, and it is actually digital paper. All of the cuts, except for the name Noah are cut from the "A New Arrival"

Family Highlight

In the middle of me making baby shower invites( for 2 showers), Graduation invites, Valentine, and Birthday cards, I had a pretty amazing week! I got to go to my sis in laws 4-D ultra sound with her. The proud daddy is my little brother, and he is currently serving our country as a Proud Marine, and he is stationed in Spain right now. He's been gone her entire pregnancy, but will be back in the states right before she has baby Skyler! So we have all filled in for him as much as we can. My kids and I went to her appointment with her, and I was so excited to see baby Skyler ( he loves to hear my voice, I'm kinda smitten) but this little guy looks just like my brother when he was a baby! He has our big lip and button nose, and his mommas eye shape. We are all truly blessed that we will have baby Skyler in our lives very soon. I'm doing a Sock Monkey baby shower for her, and Im doing a lot with my cricut, so Ill get pics up as soon as I can

Now the adorable cuties are my rotten children, my Emma is super girlie, so I started making tutus for her, and she loves them. And her older brother Gabe is my handful, his daddy cut him a mowhawk and it fits him to a T. He's a little rebel. This is a pic of them playing in the laundry basket. They think its really cool to ride around in it.

Slider Cards

These are all Valentine Cards that I made, and they are all spinner cards, and all of the cuts are form Create a Critter. The Bee says "bee mine", the Squirrel says "Be my Valentine", and the puppy says "to be loved by you". Ive also posted a Youtube video that shows how they all look being slid.

Cards for my Grandfather

My Grandmother asked me to make some cards for my Grandfather. She requested a Valentine card, and a Birthday card, and these are what I came up with. The monster card is cut from the Mini Monster Cricut Cartridge. I used the card feature to make the base. Then I cut the base Monster and the shift base Monster. I typed up,"I only have eyes for you." Then I used some googly craft eyes.

This card is the Birthday card, and I used the Life's a Party Cricut Cartridge for the cake, the Happy Birthday, the stars and the eat cake phrase. He is a disabled Marine, so I stuck with The Marine colors. I'm all about supporting my Military men and women. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU ALL DO!!!(esp my little brother!) Now back to the card lol, I made this card a slider card, and the eat cake on the stars is the slider part, and it shows the message another year older.
I hope you all enjoy my cards, and if you'd like the recipe, just email me. I'd love to share!
