Breast Cancer Card

Hello All, 

Today I am posting a card I made with my dollar store finds which I was VERY excited about it as I could not believe to get designer paper pack for $1.25 for 24 double sided sheets.  Also finding packs of blank scored cards 5 I believe in a pack for $1.25 so I got two.  AND I found my glitter breast cancer ribbon stickers which I thought were PERFECT as My Pink Stamper is having a "Think Pink week" where she is giving away a PINK Cricut Expression!! (Check out her blog for more details)

Here is my First Cancer card and going to make another one tonight or tomorrow. 

- Glitter Ribbion sticker - dollar  store find

Birthday Card #2

I have recently been thinking about Christmas as it is coming up soonish and then I thought I would like to go to craft fairs 1 or 2 before christmas.   It is something I think would be fun to get into rather than going just to the Abby Flea Market that I do with my mom where I sell kids clothes and she sells jewerly we both made.   Anyways I have done a couple projects this week just did not get around to posting them.   The one I am going to post was a birthday card I made for my mother-in-law to be's birthday.   It was mainly just a card face that I made out of a response card I had gotten from my sister. 

  • 1 Cartner Response card with Envelope
  • Stamps etc, Pigment Ink : blue and Red
  • Easy Scrapbooking Design Paper
I inked the response card first with the blue, then I felt something was missing so wait for it to dry then added the red.  

I then cut a peice of the blue designer paper in half as the other half had presents and I had already cut out the cupcakes from different piece of paper that I wanted to use.  

I used Creative Memory Photo splits to glue down the paper and cupcakes and then made my own pop dots to pop up the Happy Birthday that I had cut out from the same page as the cup cakes.  

The Easy Scrapbooking paper is really neat, as it has some patterned paper, as well as it has coordinating paper with elements that has a frame around the edge then in the middle has sentiments or elements such as the cupcakes.   ( Hope that makes sense.. if not I will have to take a picture to show you what I mean)  The year of the calendar I am using is 2008 and I had got it from a box of scrapbooking stuff that someone sold on craigslist for $20 for a small moving box full of differnet stuff. 

Let me know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Card

Hello All, 

Here is a birthday card I made for my friends birthday.  She has 30 birds give or take a few, and love them dearly as they are her children.   I was first going to make it as a just because card when she was going through a hard time, however it didn't make it to her in time, and since the only thing I had adhered was the bird I decided to finish it off as a birthday card which is coming up on the 19th.  

Anyways that is all the project I have for today! 

  • Light blue cardstock was from Creative Memories
  • White paper is just printer paper that I stamped on using a stampin up stamp Friends definition. 
  • Bird cut out was a tag I got from a local craft store that I cut off the tag parts
  • Pattern Paper is from a scrapbooking calender that I got off craiglist - website for company
  • The sentiments I created myself and just printed them out.

Post-it Craft Paper

Hello All,  

Just when you thought you heard it all, they come out with Post It Craft Paper.   It's basically like a big giant post it note with the whole back with removable adhesive.  I am going to look forward in seeing more projects with it, and to know if it sticks well as I know that post it notes sometimes fall off.

Anyways just wanted to share that news with you all.  I am looking forward in starting my christmas cards soon.   Oooh and going to be making one of my best friends a birthday card!  Soo keep you eyes peeled for that card.

Take care all!
