Paperbag Album Baby Girl

Here are some sample pages from a Paperbag scrapbook album I made.  I have listed a kit with all the pieces needed to complete a whole 10 page album (plus front cover and back) just like this one on ebay.  The completed album shown here is for a friend at work that is having a baby girl in July.

Shimmering Butterflies

I haven't been spending much time posting, but I have been creating.  Here is a card I made last April (and finished up a few more today).  The  butterfly on this card was cut from the Stampin' Up die Beautiful Butterflies.  After I cut the butterflies, I embossed them for added dimension.  I then sprayed them with Glimmer Mist.  The antennae is made with wire.  I added two little pink gems on the butterfly body.  The background was stamped with "Inspired by Nature" on some pattern paper, and the sentiment is from "Upsy Daisy" (both sets are retired Stampin' Up).  This card has a soft elegant look to it.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hoping to have more time to post more ideas!

Happy Father's Day!

I found these cards offered for free on the Cricut Craft Room.  This site is free although you will need to download it on your computer when you are ready to cut.  There are 5 free father's day cards this week.  I am just learning how to use it, but so far, it is very handy.  I am thinking this is a cross between the Gypsy and the Design Studio.  I was told there would be a way to  download (or upload) your cartridges which would incorporate both of the previous tools into one very convenient one.  They have cartridges you can purchase and download as well as individual images.  I will check back often with more information as I figure it out.  As for now, these cards are fun and easy.  The top tool card was cut several times on different colors of paper.   I then mixed and matched different tool shapes (like a puzzle) and then matted the card.  The second card was cut on double sided cardstock.  Just fold the card after the cutting.  I added a few embellishments, so quick and easy!  If you have a Cricut, take some time to check out the Cricut Craft room.

Lazy Days of Summer

I am finally on summer vacation and I am loving it.  I can craft and create to my hearts content!  And not only am I creating, but I have time to get caught up on my "blog surfing".  As I was checking out blogs today, I was directed to a blog that had a great video showing a cute summer tag and also a huge give-a-way.  Go over to Joe's to check out the fun!  I will be back shortly with some cards I have been working on!  TTFN!

End of the School Year

Well, I don't know where the time has gone, but another school year has flown by.  I have been busy with end of the year projects which include a ton of "thank you" cards.  Here is one I made with this fun stamp set I found at the Novi convention this year from Stamp On It...Scrabble Alphabet Letters stamp set.  The whole set was only $8!  How could you pass that up??  You can use these for anything.  Great for scrapbooking and card making.  They are so easy to use,  just attach the letters you want to use on an acrylic block.  The back ground paper was just something "school" related I had in my stash.  I stamped and cut out the letters to spell "thank you".  I added a prima flower with a fun center brad.  Quick and easy (and cute!).  Thanks for stopping by, check back often, I have tons of projects to post!

Create from a Kit

  I'm always on the look out for these kind of cards.  They are so easy to create from.  By using a few tools and supplies from your sta...
