Its July and that means its time for Christmas In July!! Time to start getting those cards ready for the busy holiday season! Time Flew by this year! Its crazy! So if you are starting your Christmas cards now please stop by Simply Create Too and show us what you have made so far!


So I got these cut files from the SIL store and I have started playing around with the print and cut 
feature and I am really starting to like the possibilities of this feature! 
This is a basic 4x6 card and the tag element is attached using pop dots to make it
have a 3D effect. I also used some glossy accents on the Christmas balls on the wreath..

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!!!
