Have a Fabulous Birthday Card

Hey there, back with another card I made for a color challenge over at My Craft Spot. I've finally received this gorgeous "High Heel Glam" shoe die from Tattered Lace that I have been waiting for. I thought to make this girly girl birthday card using the fabulous shoe with all of the colors for the challenge. What girl doesn't love shoes, right? I also used Scrapping Life Cards metal dies from My Craft Spot. My only regret was that I wanted to give a little dimension to the shoe, but I glued it down before I could do that, oh well, better luck next time, lol!

Precious Little Baby... Boy Card

Hey there, back with another card I made for a couple of challenges. I had to make a baby card for Cardz TV and I had to use a cute critter for My Craft Spot. I have previously made a baby girl card and a neutral baby card, so this time I thought to do a baby boy card. So for my critter, I decided to use the "B is for Boy" Cricut Cartridge!!! I also used some dies and stamps from My Craft Spot. Had so much fun making this little card.

Swap From Kelley

My crafting friend Kelley and I decided to do a swap together, we've done swaps together on the CMB, but we decided we would do a private swap. She made me these wonderful little canvases using different crafting styles. I am still currently working on hers and I'm hoping to get done soon...that's before the whip comes out, lol! Anyway, she did an awesome job on these, she definitely has great talent!

Enjoy...

St. Patrick's Day Wall Decor

Here's another project I made for a couple of challenges, FCCB and Cardz TV. I used the "Give a Hoot" Cricut Cartridge for the four leaf  clover. I had this three piece frame in my box of things I want to alter, so I figured why not use this for St. Patrick's Day wall d├ęcor. Love the sentiment, perfect to share with Hubby and all of my "not so little" leprechaun's!

Spring Cards 3-D Holder

Hey there, back with another project for this weeks challenge at FCCB. Had to make a project and use one of my favorite colors, so I chose my most favorite...yellow. We have another snow storm coming to us here on the East Coast...soooo tired of all of this snow, so what better way to bring in the Spring than to make a holder for my Spring cards. I used the CTMH Artiste cartridge. Super simple project that you can make in a flash. I do plan on making one for each season...to be continued! :)

Use your favorite colors
 


So here you have it...

Haven't started my Spring cards as of yet, these are just for show!





 


I made this cut in CCR and I fit it to page, it's about 12" wide 6 1/2" tall, be sure to have the bottom piece clicked as well when sizing the top piece. The holder is pretty easy to put together, you only have the 2 pieces, comes together in minutes. Perfect for cards that size up to 6 1/4". There are 8 well embellished cards that fit with the envelopes easily, and you can fit a lot more if they are not as embellished.


Paper: K & Company...Happy Trails 
MS edge punch.
Glitter stickers.
The circle tags with a metal edge. (had it for years)
Flowers: Green and White and Green Polka dots. (Oriental Trading Co.)
Yellow button.
Hemp cord: Yellow
Ribbon: Turquoise with white vine.
Blue bling.
Ink top edges with blue ink.
Butterfly: Michaels
