My Sweet 6 year old

Well, I finally have a little time today to do this post.  I wanted to show you the layout I made of my other daughter.  I absolutely love this picture, doing this layout was a lot of fun.  It is hard to believe that she is only six years old.  She is such a fun girl with a spunky personality.

B. Couture Photography is so great!  She is really fun to work with and her photos are wonderful!

This layout was also from a Liz Qualman sketch
I made my own patterned paper using a stamp set from My Cute Stamps
A Martha Stewart border punch
Butterflies cut from the Indie Art Cartridge
Circles cut with George and BS
Ribbon is from Michaels
I used black stickles in the center of the butterflies
and I used Glossy Accents on the butterfly wings

Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you liked what you saw and come back for more inspiration.

My beautiful 13 year old

Hi everyone, sorry it has been a while.  Life just got a little busy.  But I am hoping to get back into the swing of things.  I am actually busy creating.  I am getting ready for a booth that I have at my upcoming Peach Days Celebration here in my small community.  Hey, if anybody has any suggestions on things to make that would sell let me know I am always open to new ideas. 

Today I want to share with you a page layout I made of my beautiful 13.5 year old.  She will be 14 in October.  I really like this picture, she is so pretty. 

I got the layout design from a Liz Qualman sketch
Paper is from a DCWV stack & flower paper is from Bo Bunny
Cartridges: Home Decor, George & BS, Accent Essentials
I used a Martha Stewart border punch
The gems in the flowers are from Doodlebug

True Love stories..

Good morning!
I am sharing with you today a wedding card that I made for a special bride, whom I am pretty close to.  She is having her bridal shower this saturday.  Her colors were kind-of different but in the end I like how it turned out.  Simple and elegant. 

Bride Stamp is from My Cute Stamps
(Colored with colored pencils)
The sentiment stamp, I believe, is from a Fiskars set all about love
Silver Embossing powder from Stampendous
Martha Stewart border punch
Silver stickles

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time!

You're Fintastic!

Well, I just had my June Card Swap for the month and wanted to share with you what I made.  Our theme was just to use summer colors. 

I wanted to go back to the way I used to do a lot of my cards by coloring in a cute stamp.  I haven't done it for a while and just felt like making a card that way.  So here it is:

Stampin' Up stamp set and ink
Versamark ink
Clear embossing powder from Stampendous
Cuttlebug-Divine Swirls
I colored my image with colored pencils and chalk
(I don't have Copic or Pro Markers, which I would love to try)
I glittered her crown
the bubbles have glossy accents on them

I hope you like it, let me know, I love reading comments!
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you come back soon!

Here Comes the Bride

Good day to you all.  Here is a quick post between all my running around today. 

This is a card I made for a girl I used to teach in Young Womens a while ago.  She is getting married!  She is a very fun girl with lots of personality.  I had fun making her card and I hope she likes it too.

I used Mini-Monograms
The stamp set is from Stampin' Up
I used some pencils and chalk for coloring the bride
I made the patterned paper using the stamp set
the top of the card I used my Cuttlebug on some vellum and then scraped some ink over it.
I used a tiny dab of stickles on the flowers

I hope you like it, let me know what you think!  Thanks for visiting!

Connor's Graduation Card

Good morning! Today I want to share with you a card I made for my nephew who is graduating on Monday.  He is the oldest grandchild in the family and I can rememeber helping take care of him when he was a baby!  Time sure does fly. 

I went really simple with this card, after all it is for a boy.  And of course, I used his school colors.

I used my Gypsy to create this card and the Locker Talk cartridge
My Pink Stamper Stamps-Everyday Occasions
Heat Embossed with Stampendous Detail White Embossing Powder
Stickles on the Tassel (I couldn't resist, the card was just too bland)

Thanks for stopping by!

U are the best!

Good day to everyone!  Here is the card I made for my May card swap.  The theme was masculine to get ready for father's day.  I didn't even use my cricut for this one. 

The stamp set is from Stampin Up, I used the Cuttlebug on my white paper, the striped paper is from Breezy Design, ink I used is from Stampin Up and Colorbox, the brads are just from my stash.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you will come back soon!

Heartfelt Thanks

How is everyone this morning?  I wanted to do a quick post before we have to head out for swim lessons. 
This is a card I made for my card swap group for the month of April.  I know it's June.  We actually haven't swapped cards in a couple of months because of different things happening with all of us.  But I am caught up now, so for our June swap I will have the cards for April, May and June. 
The theme for April was just to use spring colors.  Well, I think of pastels during that time of year.  I ended up making it a thank you card, and I really like how it turned out.  So here it is:

I made my card on my gypsy with the Mini-Monograms cart.
The striped paper is from Breezy Design
Stamp set is from My Cute Stamps
"Heartfelt Thanks" stamp is MPS stamps-Simply Sweet Occasions
I stamped the images on DCWV pastel stack
Colorbox ink was used for stamping and edging
I shaded a little bit on my images with Pearlescent chalk from Pebbles Inc. (it doesn't really show in the picture but they really shimmer in the light.)
