Birthday Fun-Birthday Cake

Here is a fun project that I made the other day.  I make something for all the girls on my soccer team.  Last year I made simple bags for them.  This year I wanted to do something different for them.  I decided to make the box from TBBM that looks like a slice of cake or pie.  I will decorate each one a little different for each girl based on their favorite color and their personality.  Well, I got the first one done the other day so here it is.

I hope you all like it and are inspired to create something too!

My Visiting Teaching Valentine

I had these little gifts made in early February and just barely delivered them.  I like how they turned out and the ladies did too!  I totally scrap-lifted the card from Stacey's Creative Corner.  I really liked the clean look and simplicity of this card.  The only thing I did different was reduce the size of the card to a 3x3, I used a different embossing folder and a different stamp on my heart.  Overall I really copied her card, I just loved it.  She has some really cute card designs over on her blog, you should check them out. 

Here is my project using her design, I hope you like it.

I used a dark brown and light brown for my paper because I didn't have enough of one color for all four that I made.

February Card Swap

Here is the card I made this month for my card swap group.  I actually started about 3 different cards and was not happy at how they were turning out, I just didn't like the way they looked.  I ended up making this really simple card the day of my card swap.

Everything looks better in PINK!

Good morning to you all.  I attended a baby shower just recently and had to show you the card I made to go with my gift.  The shower was for one of my Young Women I taught about 7 years ago. This is her first baby and she is having a girl.  I bought a cute little outfit and some matching blankets.  I made the card to match the set.  I thought it turned out pretty cute! 

If you can't tell by the pictures, the monkey is the same one that is on the clothes and blanket.  (I traced the monkey off of a onsie, colored it, and cut it out)
Cartridge: Mini-Monograms
Some paper is Bazzill and some is from my stash
My Pink Stamper Stamp: Everyday Occasions ( I wish the stamp would have shown up more)

Hope you like it, let me know!  Thanks for stopping by!

MPS- February Blog Hop Challenge

For the February Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge over at My Pink Stamper we had to make something using the Color Red, a circle, pink ribbon and 2 My Pink Stamper Stamps.  It was starting out pretty hard, but once I got into my zone it went relatively easy. 

What I ended up making was a Heart Shaped Goodie Bag that my 6 year old wanted me to make for her teacher for Valentines.  So here it is:

Cartridges: TBBM, Mini-Monograms
Paper: cardstock from my stash & Best Creation Inc for the patterned paper

My Family Scrapbook Layouts

I just remembered that I haven't shown you guys the scrapbook pages I made for my parents and my in-laws for  their albums.  This is what I give them for Christmas.  I like doing this instead of buying something because they already have so much, what I am giving them is priceless, and it is a good way for them to know how their grandchildren are growing up.

Sorry about the pictures, I didn't have a good background, I took them at the last minute and had to stand above them.  With the lighting it was hard to get a good picture.

This first one is my oldest. She picked out what she wanted on her page and then just had me put it together.  She really likes the Simply Charmed cartridge, and the patterened paper is from SEI. I also used Bazzill cardstock, and other misc. cardstock.  Stickles and some Stampin Up ink for inking the edges. 

Sugar and Spice is my 6 year old.  She is a little bit of both.  She wanted to use the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge.  She picked out her pictures and wanted the two little paper dolls on the page.  She picked out her paper from SEI.  We had to have some stickles on there and some shading with Stampin Up ink.

My little man is growing up so fast.  I had a lot of fun making his page.  I used the B is for Boy cartridge on his layout.  I love the colors and the overall look of it.

I had fun making my husband's layout.  He picked out his pictures and patterned paper (DCWV).  I used the Boys Will Be Boys, and George cartridges.  I had to use the HERO title for him, because he is a hero to our children.  They look up to him a lot.   

Last of all is mine.  I never have that many pictures because I am always the one taking them.  I found some to use and made mine with my favorite color scheme.  The flowers are from Plantin Schoolbook, and George.  My title is from the Gypsy Wanderings cart.  I had to use Stickles!  I also used my Cuttlebug, and some brads.

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by my blog and check out my projects.  I hope you like them and are inspired by them.
