Jentry's Bapstim Card

I just had a nephew get baptized recently now it is my niece Jentry's turn.  Her big day is coming up this Saturday.  I made her baptism card to look like her of course.  I hope she likes it.  I included in the package that I sent to her a cute flower hair clip that is white with some bling in the center.  Her card is very basic but elegant.

Sorry about the lighting I just couldn't get it right to show the whiteness of the card.  For some reason the lighting turned out really dim.

The card I made for Teisha is very traditional, and used our school colors.
I used Locker Talk, and Boys will be Boys cartridges

Teacher Appreciation!

Hello all you crafters,
Today I am going to share with you what I made for my daughter's 1st Grade Teacher.  Besides making a personal gift for her I was in charge of decorating her door for the week.  I have to say I really like how my projects turned out.  

First project is a wooden pencil painted and decorated for the teacher's desk.  As you can see I glittered the eraser, I wound wire around the metal part for the pencil and I used vinyl for the name. 

 For the door I made my very first banner!  I love it! 

I cut the letters from the Boys will be Boys cartridge. 
I put a little bit of bling on each of the letters with stickles. 

I put it up so that she would walk under the banner, instead of putting it flush on the paper. 
I think she is going to keep it up for a long time. 

Cartridges:  George & BS, Locker Talk, Doodlecharms, Boys will be Boys
I used a lot of stickles, some glossy accents, & pop dots.
I used some rainbow ribbon to tie it together. 
And of course I used my Gypsy for the whole project!

Sorry for so many pictures, I was just really proud of this project and wanted to show it off!
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired.

Chase's Bapstism Card

How is everyone today?  In this post I will be sharing a card I made for my nephew Chase who just recently was baptized.  I am so proud of him and his decision.  He is such a special young boy. My sister really liked it and told me how Chase thought it was pretty cool too.

I was with my sister when she bought a new little suit outfit for Chase.  I made my card based off of his suit. 
Of course the boy on the card is Chase in his new suit.  I made the pattern on the yellow paper myself using some stamps.  It was based off of the tie.

Stamps for the patterned paper are Stampin Up
I used Colorbox & Stampin Up inks

Hello my crafty friends!

Good day to all of my crafty friends.  I apologize for being gone so long.  My life got flipped upside down on April 13.  My Dear Mother died and I have had a hard time adjusting.  I feel that I am finally able to get back into the swing of things.

I actually had some easter projects that I was going to share with you before I got the news of my Mother. 
I will go ahead and share them with you even though it was a long time ago.  I have some other things to share during the week as well.  I have also just finished more calenders, that is what was keeping me very busy. 

I feel bad I missed out on so much and I still need to catch up on all the fun things that are happening in blog world.  I hate missing the blog hops and challenges but oh well, I am back and ready to have fun. 

Here are some goodie bags I made for my daughter's 1st grade class and some I made for visiting teaching:

For these goodie bags I used the Doodlecharms cart. 
Paper from my scraps
I used the cuttlebug to emboss the eggs
some ink for shading
I hand wrote "Hoppy Easter" since I don't have a stamp.

I made four of these baskets. 
They were cut using the TBBM cart. 
The embellisments on the basket are a stamp set from "My Cute Stamps"
I used some ink for shading
Stickles for that extra touch

Thanks for taking a look at my projects,  I hope you like them.
I have a cute card to share with you tomorrow!  C-you then.
Thank you for stopping by, taking a peek, and leaving a comment or two!
