Bright Birthday Card

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I love this card.  I CASE this from somewhere and cannot remember where I saw it, so if this is your card, please let me know.  This was made using the Spellbinders Nested Pennants Die Templates.  The stamp set used is from Waltingmouse stamps called Vintage Banners.  Love this company.- you can check them out here - http://www.waltzingmousestamps.com/.  The company is out of the England I believe.  You pay in pounds so it is a little expensive, but it is worth the money if you like their products.  I have bought a couple of other sets I need to start working on. 


The paper and ink used is SU cherry cobbler and bermuda bay (retired).  The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart's.  Cuttlebug dots was used for the background of the card.

I've Been Published!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I submitted a birthday card I made on my cricut to a pretty new publication called "The bug Magazine".  I thought the card was unique enough to maybe get a little attention.  When they came back and said they were going to use the card in their May/June edition, I was so surprised and happy.  For you Cricut users here is their website if you are interested in purchasing the magazine.  http://thebugmagazine.com/.  They also have a facebook page if you want to look them up there too.  Take a look at the pictures below. 



I used the Doodlecharm cartridge for this card.  I cut the cupcake out and then cut the icing out, ran it through my cuddlebug divine swirl.  The cupcake I ran through the cuddlebug with the distressed stripes.  Added some ribbon and sentiment.  Very simple card!


The first picture is a copy of the magazine cover and the second picture is the picture of my card in the magazine!!!!



I attended the Great American Scrapbook Conventions in Chantilly, VA on June 24th.  I was walking and saw a sign advertising "The bug Magazine".  I got so excited I found the booth and met the owner's husband Joshua.  This is a picture of me and Joshua holding the bug magazine.  He is such a nice guy, I wanted to purchase a t-shirt like the one he has on and they were not selling them.  I asked him if I could have the one he was wearing and he was going to give it to me!!!

Christmas in July

Sunday, July 10, 2011

I have been working on some Christmas cards this weekend for a friend of mine.  She wants to be able to make cards for Christmas that are not so complicated.  I think these came out pretty nice.  This stamp set just retired, it is called Big on Christmas. 

The base of this card is old olive and I used the SU DSP Jolly Holiday for the front.




This card is called a joy fold card.  I love how it turned out.  This also is SU DSP called Dashing.  This was a very simple card to make and it does not take long at all.  Here are the dimensions: 
Paper: Real Red (8 1/2 x 4 1/2) scored at 3" , (3 3/4 x 2 3/4), Old Olive (3 x 8) scored at 4" long ways, Very Vanilla (3 3/4 x 2 3/4) (3 1/2 x 2 1/2), Designer Series Paper (4 x 2 3/4) (4 x 5 1/4)


The base of this card is real read.  I punch some snowflakes with MS punch and used stickles to cover them.  I also used stickles on the word snow.



The base of this card is real red with real red ribbon on the side. 

Craft Room in Progress!

Wednesday, July 6, 2011


These cubes are from Target call Itso; they snap together, you can also purchase shelves or bins to go inside the cubes.  I have three shelves in each cube.  On the right side, I have all my pattern paper.  On the left, I have more supplies.  Love these!!!!

This cabinet came from Joann Fabrics.  You can get this for under $100 with coupon.  I put all my solid colors in the slots where I have the paper.  In the bottom drawer I have my SU stamps.  If I get anymore, I don’t know where I’m going to put them.  In the other drawers there are just supplies

These are two shelves from Target.  They are great for holding your punches.  As you can see, I love Martha Stewart punches. 
This table I keep my cricut and my grand caliber on.
