Cute Cupcake

Hope you're having a great weekend! This is a card I made for a friend. I found the cupcake template on Ebay. I'm normally strictly a Lasting Impressions brand template type of girl, but this cupcake template just called out to me. I'm a sucker for images of food with faces!! This template is by ATD. All the paper is by Lasting Impressions.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Butterfly Challenge Card

Happy Friday! This is a card I made for a challenge with a Yahoo Embossing Group I belong to, called "The Bossy Group." Each month, one person hostesses a challenge, she picks a brass template, embosses the image of the template, and mails the image to each of the participants. This month, the image was these butterflies and a sentiment. Each participant has to make a card using the image they receive. I really enjoy these challenges. It is so much fun to see how creative everyone is, and how everyone's cards turn out differently! I get a lot of ideas on how to use different templates.

Have a great weekend!

Baby Shower Invites!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I got some wonderful news last month, my brother & his wife are expecting their first baby! I am going to make their baby shower invitations so I've been busy making a few samples for them. They don't know yet if it's going to be a girl or a boy, but they will find out soon! Then I'll know if I need blue paper or pink paper!

The first pink card I made using Stampin' Up punches, following the tutorial on this post, here. I changed it a little bit, she mentioned a 1" punch for the head, that looked too tiny to me, so I used 1 1/2" circle punch for the head. I sponged all the edges of the baby's body to make it stand out a little more. I used an A Muse stamp "Your're Invited" on the bottom of the card. I still had left over paper from making their wedding invitations, so I used that same paper on this card!

I loved making the onesie card, it was so easy and fast!! I used the tutorial to make it found here, and I used a varitey of Stampin' Up punches. The duck image is from A Muse Stamps too.

Have a great weekend!

The People of Las Vegas Flip Album

Hi there, I wanted to share this flip album that I made for my mom for her birthday. My mom LOVES Las Vegas, and these are pictures from one of her recent trips to Las Vegas. One of her favorite things about the city are all the street people! I put all the pictures in a flip album and titled it "The People of Las Vegas." She loved it!

I've made this type of flip album before, here is the link to a previous post where I made another one. These are so quick, fun and easy to make!

Have a great week!

Hi, I'm back! Finally done moving, and getting settled in my new home, and have unpacked my craft room! I am still hanging things on the wall but will post pictures of my craft room later this week. I am LOVING it! For now, I am sharing a dry embossed card I made for a swap. This card was designed based on a sketch. The crown looks sparkly, it's not, I made it using plain silver paper. I think my camera added the extra sparkle! I used a Lasting Impressions brass template to create the frog, crown and Prince sentiment. The paper is all from Lasting Impressions too (except the silver paper, I'm not sure who makes that). Off to check out some other blogs, I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to! Have a great rest of the weekend!
