Christmas Cards

These are definitely not traditional cards, however I really like them! I found the "naughty but nice" ribbon at Michaels and went with that to make them. The cards were found at Big Lots. They have a package of 20 cards, (5 red, blue, green, and red) for $1. So I bought 4 packs using the green and red out of each.
The girl is actually Tinkerbell without her wings. Then stickled the outfit, shoes, and santa hat (which was cut from the PDDU cart) and used liquid applique to make the ball on the hat and shoes look fluffy.
The inside reads" He knows if you've been Bad or Good. Have a Merry Christmas anyways!

Christmas Tags

These are the tags i made to put on all the Christmas presents this year. The tags were made using the Winter Woodland cart. All i did after it was cutout was use brown and red stickles to decorate the branch, then used a liquid applique and embossing gun to puff the white to look like snow, and glue it onto the back of the tag.

Picture Frame

My husband is an avid softball player. When one of his teammates were having his first son I decided to make this frame for him.
I found the quote online when I was looking for a Father's Day Quote last year and thought it would be useful later on. When I thought about making a picture frame I knew the quote would be perfect for this.
The cutouts are from the Everyday Paper Doll cart. I printed the quote on to a transparent sheet. When I was adding the details onto baseball player, i accidently smudged it. However, a black eye goes hand-in-hand with boys and sports (especially with these guys).
Here is the quote that was used:
Spread the diamond in the position
Of the Diamond with you at bat.
Then fold Second Base down to Home.
And set the baby on the Pitcher's Mound.
Put First Base and Third Base together,
Bring up Home Plate and pen the three together.
Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game.
And start all over again!

Birthday Card

One of my best friends loves elephants. I got the Create a Critter card right around her birthday and was excited to use it. I used DS to weld 2 elephants together and a balloon bouquet to the front elephant to make the card. I then cut the balloons out in different colors and popped them with foam pop-up squares.

Baby shower decorations

I needed to create decorations for a scrapbooking table and the gift table. Both the expecting parents are directors at a zoo and the nursery theme is animals. The "Animal pot" went on the scrapbooking table and the basket went on the gift table for cards. I used the New Arrival, Create a Critter and the Everyday Paper Dolls carts.


Last Christmas I made clocks for presents. The Winnie the Pooh was for our nephew. All cut outs were made from the Pooh Font Cart. The Baseball one I used the Baseball solutions cart and the George cart for the circles (I had problems cutting out the baseball from the baseball cart). The Automobiles were cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls cart and the Numbers were from Hannah Montana.

Diaper Cakes

I have made quite of few Diaper Cakes for friends that are having their first child. Some of them are more intricate and crafty then others. These are just a few of them.

This simple card was made using the sweetheart cart.

Thank You

This is one of my favorite thank you cards that i've made.

Engagament Card

I made this card for my cousin. They were having an old saloon style engagement party. I used the sweetheart cart for the saloon and EPD/PDDU for the people and grass.

Rock On

I made this card for my Father In-Laws birthday. I used the Indie Art Cartridge and CTMH stamps. I embossed the stamps with a silver powder.
