3D flower pot shaped card... perfect birthday, mother's day, or any occasion

This has to be my favorite card so far. I had so much fun making it! It did take more time than other cards, but look at the result!!! I got the download from and my cricut cuts everything I need out for me. What do you think??

I am working on a bridal shower scrapbook and bachelorette scrapbook. I will show those projects next week! Have a great weekend!!

First Communion and Baptism Cards

I know a lot of kids (My daughter, 2 nephews, 1 niece, and couple others)that will be receiving their First Communion this spring. So I thought I would get a head start on some of the cards. I found this cross card file on a site. All I had to do was download it and my Cricut cut it out (using the Sure Cuts A Lot program)!! I love the cut out crosses on the side!!

I also used this card to make a Baptism card:

All of these cards are in my Etsy shop.
My next shaped card is just about finished.... This card took a lot more time than the others. It is a flower pot filled with individual cut out flowers!! I am loving how it turned out!! If I have time, I will finish it today and post it later.

Easter cards

Believe it or not, Easter will be here before we know!!! I have been having a lot of fun making shaped cards, so I thought I would try making some Egg cards for Easter. I used my Cricut expression to make the egg cards,the Bunnies, and the envelopes.

This last card I stamped the little bunny and added liquid applique to his tail to make it look like a cotton tail.
All of these cards are listed in my Etsy shop. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

Birthday card, Thank you Card, Baby Bee card, all Papertrey INK

I had a productive morning!! I made 3 cards!!! I am loving this set from Papertrey Ink: Baby Button Bits. As you can see, I used the cupcake stamp for a thank you card and a birthday card... so the set can be very versatile!!! My favorite card out of these 3 is the baby bee one!!! I found this yellow and white gingham paper in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this card!! I added glitter to the wings to make them sparkle!

I cannot believe that tomorrow is already Friday!!!! We are supposed to get another round of snow Sunday night.... so we may be looking at another snow day.
I am in the midst of designing my stamp/scrapbook room!! We are looking at using kitchen cabinets as part of the design. I have 2 pretty big walls that I can use. I already have my work table. I got it last year at IKEA. We used 2 bookcases and a kitchen counter.. I love it!!! However, I have so much stuff and need more storage.
Do you have your own space? If so, I would LOVE to see pictures... I need ideas. Thanks... Have a great weekend!!!!

Onesie Shaped Baby Cards

We have had even more snow this week. We got 10 inches Monday and Tuesday. The kids finally went back to school today.

I have seen these onesie shaped cards on other websites and thought they were so cute!! I had to try one (or two)... I couldn't just make a boy one, had to make a girl one too! It is a good thing that I have know A LOT of people (6) having babies soon. Now I have an excuse to make these really cute cards. Have you made any shaped cards? If so, what shape? I would love to try other ones out!!! Have a great night!

Baby cards

So sorry I haven't been updating my posts!!! It has been a snowy week here in Cincinnati and the kids had 2 snow days. During these days I have been making Valentine's, helping my daughter with her Valentine cards, and making some baby cards. First here is a picture of a few of my daughter's Valentine cards she made for her classmates. We used the Papertrey Ink Valentine stamps.

She had a lot of fun making these and did a great job....
Here are the 2 Baby cards I made last night using the template from Papertrey Ink. These elephants are sooo cute, and I had so much fun making them!!!

Did you get a lot of snow? We got about 8 inches and will be getting another round on Sunday. We are celebrating Valentine's Day tomorrow night. My husband and I have never been really into Valentine's Day. We like to celebrate it with kids. We are going to dinner and Build a Bear. This is what we did last year and they wanted to do it again!!! I wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day!!!! Have a great weekend!

Valentine Cards

9 more days until Valentine's day!!! I can't believe it! 2010 is already flying by!! Here are some Valentine cards that I have made:

Very simple to make. It was a great way to use up some of my Valentine paper scraps from last year. You dont need a lot of supplies to make your own Valentine cards. You would just need Valentine paper, a sentiment stamp, and black ink.
It is Friday!! I hope that you all have a great weekend!!!

Valentine's Day Mailboxes

I love these little mailboxes!! They are perfect for your little Valentine, or fill it with some candy and it makes a great Valentine present for a teacher or friend. I also made some 3x3 Love Notes to go with the mailbox. They fit perfectly inside.

Have you made anything for your Valentine? I would love to see it! Post a link in the comment section. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!!!

More Handmade cards

Hey everyone!! I haven't been very productive this week!!! SO I am going to continue to show you some cards that I made last week!!
These first 2 cards are for little boys. I just never have enough boy cards!! If a boy's birthday comes up and I need a card, I will go and look through all of my cards and usually discover that all of my cards are "girly"!! So I am trying to make more masculine cards!!

Here is a fun birthday card. You cannot tell by the picture, but I used liquid applique on the cupcake and it looks like real icing! I love using liquid applique.

The last card is a thinking of you card!! I love the butterflies! They look like they are about to fly off the page!!

Enjoy your Wednesday!
