Off to See the Wizard

I just finished this mini scrapbook album for a friend whose favorite movie is the Wizard of Oz.  I used the Wizard of Oz collection paper from the Paper Studio.  I made the cover and used the hidden stacked binding system.  I made it out of black paper bags and I also made large photo mats for the bags for extra photos.  I used charms and flat backed buttons with pictures from the movie.  I love how it came out and I love it so much I am going to have to make one for me as well.

Let Your Day Soar

I have been crazy busy getting ready for my craft shows so I haven't been posting lately but I made this card for my husband's friend's daughter who just had a heart transplant.  I used one of my Stamping Bellas and some retired Stampin Up cardstock, ribbon and some flowers, patterned paper, stickles and brads from my stash.  I love it!  It is so bright and cheerful and I am sure she will love it too.

Make A Wish

Here is a card I made for a friend's birthday coming up this month.  I used a Stamping Bella image and papers from Carta Bella.  I used Bic Mark-its and copics and flowers, brads, and ribbons from my stash. I did some paper piecing with the gift and her dress. The sentiment comes from Paper Trey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages set.  I think it is a fun card and I hope she likes it as much as I liked making it.


Happy Anniversary

It's been a while since my last post.  I have been busy making cards for my craft shows coming up.  This card is one that I made for my parents for their 50th anniversary.  I used on old retired stamp from Stampin up.  I think it was from the Seaside Sketches stamp set.  I used papers from Authentique.  I used copics and stickles and letter stickers from Lily Bee Designs and that's about it.  Pretty basic but I love how it turned out.

Thanks a Latte

Hi Everybody!  I am starting my card making for the craft shows I am doing in November and below is a quick Thank You card I made the other day.  I made my own patterned paper from my Imagine and I used the Yummy cartridge for that.  I used Beyond Birthdays cricut cartridge for the coffee cup cut at 3" and I used a couple of retired Stampin'up punches for the ovals.  I used an old stamp set for the sentiment (I don't even know where it came from) and of course a couple of mini buttons for accents.  I really lik ehow it turned out.

CardzTV Christmas in July Challenge #1

Here is my entry for the CardzTV Christmas in July Challenge #1.  The challenge was to make a christmas card with any kind of animal on it.  I used 2 cricut cartridges.  I used Create-a-Critter for the penguin and Gingerbread for the hat.  Both were cut at 2 1/2".  The body of the penguin was cut with DCWV glitter white cardstock and the background patterned paper is from Echo Park's Season's Greetings 6x6 pad from last year and I used bakers twine and mini buttons to accent the card.  I think it came out so cute!

Welcome to BOO-Ville

My sister's favorite holiday is halloween and every year I make 5 cards and mail them to her the week leading up to halloween day so she gets one a day for 5 days.  This year I have decided to do 10 cards.  The last card is always the biggest and has the most work in it.  Here it is.  It is a stair step card and I used 3 cricut cartridges for all of the pieces.  I used Chic and Scary for the trees, Happy Hauntings for the gravestones and Holiday Cakes for the house.  I also used a retired Stampin' up set called Boogly Eyes for all of the little characters.  I colored them in and cut them out.  For the sentiment I used Card TVs Spooky Sayings.  I absolutely love how it came out but I don't think the pictures do it justice.  There is a lot going on in the card and it was really hard to get a good shot of everything.
