Carlie’s First Card

Standard

Carleys first card

Hi Dear friends,
I had the great pleasure of entertaining my youngest son and his girlfriend over the weekend. They came home for some wonderful quality time together. Love them both so very much. We ate, watched tv, ate some more, played a board game, ate some more, watched bears game, ate some more, needless to say, we did alot of eating lol. While the guys were watching the bears game, I took Carlie into my scrapbooking room and before I knew it she was browsing books and came across a cute card that she wanted to make for their adorable dog  (our granddog),  Mela.  Just realized I dont even have any pictures of her on my camera. I have some on my phone but that does me no good. O well have to post a picture later. Anyway, I wanted to post a picture of her first card. It turned out so adorable. She did a great job for her first time. She picked out the papers and the cute diecut from one of my cricut  cartridges. If you look to the left of the card she tied a little bacon strip snack to the card. The design showed a milkbone but we didnt have any little bones so she improvised. The little dog is attached with an action wobble . Great job Carlie!  Can’t wait until we can do this again. I had so much fun with you two this weekend.

Until next time,

>Hi everyone! This is a card made for my youngest sons 20th birthday.
I had a picture of his s-10 and adjusted the color and came up with this color combination.
Thought the ribbon and patterned paper went perfectly together. He no longer has this truck and thought this would be a great idea. He loved it so much he hung it on his frig in his apartment. Made me feel good that he liked it that much.
Stop on over to MPS blog and check out all the great birthday projects.
Have a great day everyone!
Until next time,

 

>Another V’ day card

>Hi again everyone! received Mary’s email on her valentine card this morning and new I had to try this layout ASAP. Thanks Mary for all your great inspirational tutorials and projects. I used non traditional valentine colors and have to tell you the inspiration, besides Mary’s card, was this black and white trim I found at Hobby Lobby. It kind of reminds me of the bakers twine except it is silkier. When I cut the ends it wanted to unravel so I got my glossy accents out and dabbed a drop of that on the ends and that worked perfectly. You can see the trim in the picture below, along with the other items I used to make this card.

This was a fun card to make. Better go for now. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Until Next time,

>HI everyone. Hope your are having a great week so far. As I was browsing thru some of my fav scrapbooking sites, I came across this post about a sketchbook idea. Then that lead me to Kristina Werner. I luv her website. She always has the most awesome ideas and is very talented. She also provides the template for the inside of your sketch book. Thanks Kristina! I used CTMH “Good Times” pp. Accent essentials cricut cartridge for the circles and calligraphy cart for the letters. The lil tag I drew and cut out of the same cs I used for the letters then used some letter stickers. Attached it with a gem brad. I used kraft cs to punch out the quotation markers with a TPS punch and tied some ribbon onto those. That’s it. Now I have one area to do my sketches instead of having papers scattered everywhere or in every different notebook I own. If anyone has made one of these or are planning on making one, I would luv to see your finished project.
Thanks for looking today!
Until next time,
