Make A Wish

I made these cards and I am loving how they came out. I am still making some Birthday cards for my grandma's friend. I have 4 or 5 more to make. Its going slow but ok. 

I used Simply Charmed for both of the cards. They were both cut out at 3". I used Esmerelda so that I could hide the face in order to use my Peachy Keen Faces. I just love these faces!!

Crazy Times

There has been so much going on everywhere that I have not had a whole lot of time to Scrap or make Cards :(. I hurt my back about 7 months ago and then something came up and made it worse, so I have been sore to say the least. My uncle had Back Surgery a week ago Friday and he just got taken back to the hospital a few hours ago (things aren't doing well). I am at my aunts and uncles house taking care of my 2 1/2 year old cousin while all this is going on. My grandma's friend has a aneurysm and was told it's a walking time bomb. 

So to say the least It has been a crazy few weeks. I worked on a card yesterday and it turned out awesome but I was not able to take a picture yet. I will take one tonight when I get home hopefully, if it's not too late. If it is then it will be up tomorrow for sure!

Celebrate Cupcake

Here is a card I just made for My Pink Stampers Birthday Challenge. It was so fun!!! I had made something similar before but I did a few things different and love the way it turned out. 

This is a solid pink card, I used Prima flowers with White Brads and the Cupcake and Sentiment were a pack together that I got in the dollar bins at Craft Warehouse. The blue paper was some from the dollar tree. I cut out the Cupcake and put it on a pop-dot.

Baby Shower Invitations

Hey There!!! I have been busy making lots of things. We had been waiting to see what my aunt was having, so while we waited I made her baby shower invitations for a BOY and a GIRL. It was fun!! 

So just went in on Thursday and found out that ITS A GIRL!!!! YAY!!! She really likes turtles, so I am making new invitations exactly like the boy one but with a pink turtle. She didn't really like the flower. 

This is the front of the Boy Invitations...
 This would be the inside...
 Front of the Girl Invitations...
 Inside of the Girl Invitation...

I am really liking how these turned out. I used Kraft Cardstock for the base of the card. Coredinations Cardstock in Frappuccino and Fern for the inside and front. The Onsie is welded together using Esmerelda {gypsy}, and cut at 5". The turtle on the front is from Create A Critter and cut at 2.40 on my gypsy.

High Heel Birthday

I just made this card for one of my friends. I really like how it turned out. This is the first time I am using the Paisley Cartridge. I got it at Michaels for $9.99, and I'm so glad I got it. 

All of the paper is just scraps out of my stash and the stamp is from the dollar bins at JoAnn. I also used my wonderful White Jelly Pen and the Clear Glitter Pen around the middle of the flower.

*Birthday Cards*

These are 2 Birthday Card that I made today. I used my brand new Once Upon A Princess cartridge. I am so excited for this cart. Now I am just waiting for the princess faces to go along with it. 

I used Swiss Dots and D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folders on both of these cards. I also used white satin ribbon from Stampin Up. I got the buttons from the dollar section at Michaels. I also used some twine on the buttons.   The punch is from EK Success that cut out the Happy Birthday, which is a stamp also from the dollar bins.

I know most of you are very crafty yourself and can make your own cards but I have heard that there are a few out there who come to blogs to look. This is for them to be able to purchase handmade items if they choose.

V Day Card

I made this card last night. I has to much fun with it!! I just got the Twinkle Toes Cartridge and couldn't wait to plat with it. The girls dress reminds me of Dancing with the Stars. LOL!!

The kids are cut at 3". The card is a 5 1/2" Square, Black is 5 1/4" and the pink is a 5" square. The top of the pink paper is embossed with the Cuttlebug with the Swirls Folder. 

I am loving this Red Satin Ribbon. It is from Michaels, I got it last week and it was on sale for half off. It was an awesome deal!

First Valentines Card

I had watched Momo's Video on her Valentines day card and I saw a trick she did for her bows and I though that I just had to try. Mine always move and look bad. So I made this adorable Valentines Day card, I am very happy at the way it came out!! 

I used the Sweethearts Cartridge and a new stamp from Stampendous. The ribbon is from Michaels.

My Birthday Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!!! I hope you all had an awesome New Year! This year I decided as part of my resolution is going to be to keep up on my Scrapbook Layouts and start making cards for the holidays now so that I have them completely done by the time they roll around. I am so far behind on my fiancĂ© and I's 2010 Scrapbook. 

So... Welcome to my Birthday Blog Hop :)!! I am 25 today and absolutely love paper crafts. I have been thinking of a blog hop that I might be able to put together and my birthday seemed like the perfect opportunity. I have some amazing and talented Women joining me today and I am so excited. So, lets get started!!!

This is my project that I made...

These are the pages I made to keep up with our 2011 Scrapbook. I used Don Juan for the font cut at 2". I used Create a Critter for the Train and all the animals. The animals are all cut out at 2 1/2" and the train at 3". I used my gypsy for the train so that I could get all the extra cars and not the Caboose. The party Hats are also cut from Create A Critter at 3". The Balloons are cut at 3", and all have the Wonderful Peachy Keen Stamps on them; From the sets Winter Characters and Basic Faces.

This Layout turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my head. 

I also made a card to go along for the hop and it turned out so good!!
I used Smiley Cards for this one, for both the cake and the card base. The stamp is one from the dollar bins and the ribbon is also from the dollar bins. 

Here is the line up for the blog hop of all these talented ladies...

There is also a little BLOG CANDY here... Just leave a comment and a way I can reach you; Please follow me if you like what you see!! 

Happy Hopping and if you get lost please come back to the list of stops!! :)
