Hi everyone! So, as you all may know, I am back to work now full time, and I thought that I wouldn't have enough time to scratch my crafting itch... Boy was I wrong! I was feeling it a lot last weekend, and spent every minute I was awake in my craft room! I will warn you... there are quite a few cards to look at! Dad... if for some weird reason you are looking at this, STOP! (I posted your father's day card on here...)
The first card is a sympathy card that I made. (As if you couldn't figure that out for yourselves.)
This next card is an invitation that I made for one of my friends, who was wanting a sample of something "princessee" for some young girls. I think this turned out rather cute... I used two different tones of pink, and I hate that the light in my room gives a yellow tone to everything... Sorry about that.
This next card I was able to take in the natural light, which is GREAT! I did this card twice, but I used two different embossing folders on the cards. This first one has the circles, and the next has the crazy squares!
Here is the father's day card that I made for my daddy. Here is the back story:
A long time ago... I think I was probably 9 or 10 I think, I had gotten some stencils with my colored pencil set. Of course, this was just in time for father's day, and one of the stencils was of a dinosaur. So, I used the dinosaur for my dad's card, and put a little pink heart inside of it, and gave it to him. Now, that I have gotten older, I decided it was time to reinvent the card I made 15 or so years ago, and bring him back to the good old days. I think it turned out SOOOOO super cute!
Here is a little Christmas card that I made and I love the way it turned out. IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS!!
This last card I made for one of my dear coworkers. I am so glad that I met this nice lady, and I am going to be very sad if one of us ever quits and we won't be able to work with one another any more. She obviously loves owls.
Well, I hope that you all liked my cards this week. I also hope that I didn't overload you. :) I think I am going to try to post things every week. I am going to try to make stuff through out the week, and then find one day to post everthing I make. I think that will be the easiest way to get all my stuff on here. Well, I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day!!
So, I am pretty sure that my days of being off work because of my knee are over. I can actually walk now! I'm really sad that I won't be able to do paper crafts as much in the very near future. So... I have posted some things that I have done in the past couple of days. I hope you enjoy!
Hello! I got some inspiration to make a card this weekend. I finally got Create a Critter, and I am in the same boat as a lot of people... I love it. It is just sooo diverse and I feel like with every project I make there is something on that cartridge that I can use! So... I have been going to physical therapy for a few weeks now, and this last week my physical therapist was on vacation. I saw on the cartridge that there is a whale, and I thought I would do something funny and say "Welcome back," but say "Whalecome back." The letters are from Hello Kitty font, and everything else that I cut out is from the CAC cart. I hope you guys enjoy!!
Hello! I am about scrapped out!! Whew! Ok... so here are my finished products for the challenges. They are in order, first is #9 and the next is #10. I hope everyone has a great remainder of the weekend!!
Yay! I finally had some time today to do Challenge number 8 on MPS! I decided to kill two birds with one stone, and do the challenge and make my grandma a mother's day present. Last year, I re-wrote her recipe cards out, and I thought that making dividers would be an awesome present! I hope you enjoy them!
Hey everyone! I'm sorry, but I know this one is out of order. You know when you see the different challenges, and one automatically pops out and you have inspiration for it... you gotta do it first! So, I did Challenge 11- Colors of the Rainbow. Enjoy!
Here is the 5th challenge. I really wanted to participate in this one, because I feel like there are a lot of cartridges that have "teachery" things on them! I made an appreciation card. Although I don't currently have a teacher, maybe this will come in handy down the road.
I'm sorry for the weird background on this one, but I wanted to get it in the light from outside, and had to put it on the floor. :) This challenge included something kind of out of the ordinary. The one thing I was thinking about that I hadn't ever used was my crop-a-dile. So, I went to town on this one with it and made a birthday card! Enjoy!
For the first challenge today, I decided to make a scrapbook page of my mom. I got a new punch last night and wanted to use it, and I think it tuned out great!!!!! The colors didn't come out really well, because I had natural light to the left, and a yellowish light to the right. The colors I used were purple, orange, and yellow. Enjoy!
