Hello Kitty Get Well

Happy Easter Weekend

Hi Everyone - 

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I wanted to share with you today some quick Easter treats I made yesterday.  The photos are not the best since I took them with my phone but you get the idea.

The first two photos are of a gift card I made with Wild Card.  The card is cut at 7" and the insert was made with Microsoft Word clip art.  My daughter is a huge Kindle fan so I thought this would be fitting.

Next are a few treat bags I made for the kids.  I just put these together real quick with the bunny from Create a Critter and the egg from Doodlecharms.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts & Bazzil), Ink (CTMH), Clear Bags (Stampin Up!), Tiny Attacher (Tim Holtz), Stamp (My Pink Stamper-Happiest Moments), Cricut, Create a Critter, Wild Card, Doodlecharms (Provo Craft).

Hope you enjoyed and have a Happy Easter!

Square Get Well Card

Hello - 

Today I wanted to share with you a square get well card I made with the Paisley cartridge.  I made it 4.25 inches so it could still fit into a standard A2 size envelope.  Having the card a little smaller than the envelope does not bother me a bit plus it costs a little more to mail a square card.  After I assembled the card it looked a little plain so I added some white gel pen stitching for a little interest.  The sentiment is from The Stamps of Life 'Trees2Build' set.

Supplies: Cardstock & Ink (CTMH), Stamp (The Stamps of Life), Pattern Paper (Stampin Up!), Stickles (Ranger), Gel Pen (Uniball Signo), Cricut, Paisley Cartridge (Provo Craft).

Graduation Cards...

First let me just say ouch.  I got a sunburn mowing the lawn the other day.  It was so nice outside and not too hot but I totally spaced out and did not wear any sunscreen.  I know that was bad on my part but now I look like a lobster.  Aloe vera is my best friend today.

Anyway, a couple of days ago I made some cards for my daughter to give to her friends who are graduating this year.  She is just a junior so we have one more year to go.  I am already getting sentimental on her though.  Sigh... 

The school colors are cardinal red, white and black.  The girls wear the white caps and gowns and the boys the red.  So I had to make them matching cards.  I used the Wild Card Cricut cartridge cap and matching envelope.  I forgot to take a picutre of the inside but I used a "Happy Graduation" stamp from My Pink Stamper.  To give the tassel more texture I ran the bottom have through a cuttlebug embossing folder and added stickles to the top.

Supplies: Cardstock & Ink (CTMH), Cricut, Wild Card, Cuttlebug, Forest Branches embossing folder (Provo Craft), Stickles (Ranger), Happiest Moments stamp set (My Pink Stamper).

Oh Happy Day

Hello fellow crafters.  I hope you are having a fabulous day.  The sun is shining and I have spent my morning on my deck enjoying my hot tea (I'm not a coffee fan) and the latest Paper Crafts magazine.  It is so nice outside and I just wanted to enjoy it before the rain comes in this evening. 

I spent some time with my Cricut the other day.  The picture is not the greatest but none the less I wanted to share.  It features the whale from Create a Critter and the stamped sentiment is from the Punny-Licious set by My Pink Stamper.

Supplies: Cardstock & Ink (CTMH), Pattern Paper (MME), Stamp (My Pink Stamper), White Gel Pen (Uni-ball Signo), Stickles (Ranger), Cricut & Create a Critter cartridge (Provo Craft).

I hope the sun is shining where you are today.  As always comments are appreciated.  Thanks for looking.  :)
