Hello All! As usual I'm late on my post... With school work and work work its so crazy.. My new years resolution this year was to be more on time.. Guess I better get to it...

Here is my post for the Happy Mothers Day or Female Card for Simply Create Too:

So for this card I embossed the white and did it on pink backing.. Then the Green piece is actually a fabric piece which came together soo well i think :) I had an adorable bow from a bag of stuff I got on clearance at one of the craft shops here.. Then added some cute little flower ribbon to it..

Please show is what you are creating and stop over and Simply Create Too !! See you there!!!

Show us Something New

Yeek I'm late posting this ... but its been crazy here.. trying to get ready for a craftshow really drains you sometimes...

Here is my something new:

This project was fun to make... I am going to hang this on my office door :) 
I took some sturdy cardboard and cut it into a hoop and then 
cut some paper ribbons on my machine and then folded them in half
and glued them around my makeshift hoop... I added some print and cuts 
and its actually really cute..
My New part of the project is that its a "New and Different project type for me"

Happy Creating!

Hello all! Summer is quickly coming to an end here and I have been spending a lot of time in my garden and doing school work... I haven't really had a LOT of time to craft... But I have made some simple cards and I have found that I really really like to make these cards a lot!

Hope you enjoy!

I used the print and cut feature on my SIL for the camera..
I used a simple 4x6 tan card base and just Tim Holtz Inked around the edges for the rough look.

Added the stamp and there we go a simple cut I think very nice card :) 

Dont forget to stop over at Simply Create Too and join in our vintage fun 

Happy Crafting!!

So now for my project...
I love peeps and I wanted to make a cute Spring sign for on my door. I used a file from KaDoodle bug Designs and cut it as big as I could on my SIL and then I traced it onto wood and cut it out ... I painted it with a baby pink color then sprayed it with a glitter spray to give it that sugar coated look.
For the sign I used a scrap piece and cut randomly along the edges to make it stand out a little bit more. I glued some scrapbook paper to it and used vinyl for the lettering. I then clear coated over it all and gave my little bunny a face and added some wire on the back to hang it and there it is a super cute and easy door decoration for spring! 

Thanks for stopping by .. For your next stop please stop by and see the awesome project Sarah has made!

No Digi Images or Stamps

Hello all! Happy almost Spring!! And Just in case I don't get to tell you HAPPY EASTER!

For my project this week I made another 3d box card. I love them so much and they are so fun to make.

This one I picked the colors first and it just sort of went from there.. The colors to me seemed more wedding like and I love the way this one turned out.. All were cut using my SIL and using files i got from the SIL Store.. I added some pearls and a gem to make it pop.

Animals Challenge At Simply Create Too

Hello All! Its starting to get really nice outside which means spring is on its way (I HOPE)
With Spring comes baby chicks (super cuteness!!) Flowers (LOVE THEM!) and I get to plant my vegetable garden (YUM!)

For this weeks challenge over at Simply Create Too  we have an animals challenge! I could have done a TON of things with this and I know you can too!
For my project I decided to do a really popular 3D Pop UP Box Card for Easter.

I got the box instructions over at Split Coast Stampers...
All of the elements were from different files I got from KADoodlebug Designs
My bunny actually wobbles and I got the action wobbles from a good friend's store

This card was a little intimidating at first but once I got into it .. It was super fun and easy! 

Hope to see you join our challenge this week!!!
