It's All About the Cake!

Hello all, I'm the designer over at Card A Day Blog today.  Check out the blog and see what the girls have been making, if you need wedding card idea that is the place to go, aren't the cards this theme been so cool!

 This was such a cool card to make and so out of the box for me. I made this card for a swap for a Facebook group I belong to, Cricut Card Exchange, we do a different theme each month and make enough for our group members and send them to them, it's a fun group.So I wanted to do something different this time for the group, and came up with this card.

Card base is from Colorbok Pearlescent cardstock pack in White. Card -cut at 5” From the Wild Card Cartridge. Used Lavender Lace liquid pearls, string of pearls in my stash glued with hot glue

and the bow is made from a roll of craft ribbon in my stash.

This was such a fun card to make, it has to be one of my top 10 favorite so far that I have made. Give it a shot and do something out side of your norm and see what you can do.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world.......

The Easter Egg Hunt-CC Challenge

Hi you all and today this is my submission for Creative Cutting Challenge: Easter—Not A Card. 


 This is a page from a 2 page layout of an Easter egg hunt we had for the grandchildren last year. The Easter lettering with the eggs is from Creative Pointe’s Easter Headings set, 

 Easter Headings

which is a sweet set of various headings that can be used for cards too. The egg and the hunt was cut out with the SCAL software and was included in the software and the Top Note element was from a free file from svgcuts.com.

The 2nd page of the 2-page layout includes the top note element and eggs cut from a free file at
The Free SVG Blog 

Close-up of the heading on the right and close up of the eggs on the left hand side. This was a fantastic day for the family and I think a mew tradition started. We had a mild winter last year so the day was absolutely beautiful to hold the hunt and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it too.

I think that it needs something in that one little empty block and I can add another set of pages to my album. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world today.....

Lucky to have a Friend like You

Hi, glad to be here today with you all. Welcome, I'm the designer today over at Card A Day Blog. This week is St. Patrick's Day, only a month away but we want to give you some inspiration to make your own cards before the actual day.

This card was made at my local scrapbook shop last year during a fun class of making cards. Classes for cards can be amazing cause you usually get to do many cards in a short period of time, sometimes get out of your comfort zone (depending on the card made) and learn a new thing or two.
This card was very simple to make, the leaves of the clover was diecut with a spellbinders heart set the smaller hearts were then dry embossed with swiss dots folder. the stem was just cut for a piece of the cardstock. The background was cut and then punched in the corners. Add a button tied with a bow and the sentiment cut from scraps of the leftover card stock and you got the perfect card to give to that special over St. Patty's Day. If you get a chance and have a local scrapbook store check them out for some card classes today.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world....

You're Invited

A bridal invitation for invitation week over at Card A Day Blog, I'm the designer today. Welcome to my blog, this is the card I made for today:

The card is made on a white cardstock base A2 style card. The background paper is for Recollections Fairy Tale collection called Fairy Dust, which made the perfect backdrop for the card with all the stamped hearts and flowers. The yellow circle was cut from George & Basic Shapes cart at 4" and the couple was cut from A Child's Year at 3.5" in white cardstock and the shadow was cut out of purple cardstock. The you're invited came from the CTMH set Little Reminder and it was stamped in some $1 bin purple ink it was stamped on white cardstock that was die-cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Banners set and the edges was inked with the same purple ink and popped up. The cricut die-cuts were dry embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. This is made with the intention of a bridal shower, but could be used for an invite to a special romantic dinner, take out the sentiment and you have a great start to an Anniversary card.

That is one of the cool things about making a card, it isn't necessary to be used for what it was intended for. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world.....

Happy Birthday Albert

Hi you all and today this is my submission card for Creative Cutting Challenge: Birthday Card. This card was especially made for my step-son’s birthday
It has 2 cuts from Creative Pointe’s Car Set (perfect for a masculine card).  
 Car Set - Click Image to Close
I used 2 of the classic cars from this set, the side view and a front view. I also used the side view car on the inside of the card too.
I brought in the border from the front into the inside too. The sentiment is something I thought up just for a fun card, remember how you felt when you turned 35. I inked the edges of the sentiment paper and the other papers too with walnut stain distressed ink. The front sentiment came from a sticker I had. The Create Pointe SVG files are so easy to use and it’s all there for you.  This card took 2 hours from beginning to end to put together. Fantastic!
The card is a 5 X 7 and the cars were cut out of scraps I had on hand. The background and the border papers came from DCWV pack Heirloom (Love this pack!)
