4th Birthday Princess Party

I made these invitations for my niece's 4th birthday party. She loves princesses, so naturally she wants it to be a princess party. I used the Celebration cart to cut out the fours, as well as the rounded squares. I found the princess stamps @ Michael's, which were perfect.

I also used a heart stamp for the background, as well as ribbon and rhinestones to add a little extra.

Card in a potted flower

I wanted to give these flowers to a special loved on in recognition of the anniversary of a loved ones death. Hyacinths are such an indication of spring for me. Simply the smell of them is like God whispering in my ear, "spring is coming. I promise."

Rather than creating a separate card to go with the flowers, I created a card that would actually stick in the plant. I used the Wild Card cart to create the flowers, and used a button with some raffia for an added element. I used adhesive to adhere toothpicks to the back of the card as a way to stick it in the dirt, covering up the toothpicks with an additional sheet of paper.

Just Buggin': Challenge #28

Make something green for St. Patrick's Day!

So my card is a congrats card, but since I mailed it out this week I figured that I would make it in St. Patrick's day colors. The person I'm mailing it to will probably get it on Wednesday. So it's perfect timing. :)

I used the Don Juan cartridge for the arrow, as well as the thumbs up.

Happy Pregnancy!

A 'happy pregnancy' card for a friend that just announced she is pregnant. Great excuse to make a card! :) I actually didn't use the Cricut on this project at all, just some Martha Stewart paper, ribbon, rhinestones, and a great $1 stamp from Michaels. :)

Ice cream & babies...

I had an unexpected free night last night. So of course I did any time I have unexpected free time...CRAFT! The baby shower card is for a friend, but the "just because" card was just a whim. It came together really nicely.

'Just Because' Card
I used Martha Stewart paper, as well as a Martha Stewart trim punch. I used my Stretch Your Imagination cartridge for the ice cream cone. I was feeling a little springy last night. Must be all the sunshine!

Baby Shower Card
I used the Doodlecharm cartridge for the bottle, as well as the tags, bags and more cartridge for the circles.

Happy Healing!

I made these cards for my boss, and my grandmother. They are each recovering from surgery. I liked how the first one turned out, so I made the second as a variation off of the same idea.

I used the wild cards cartridge, as well as tags cartridge. Of course I added buttons, and used a flower stamp to add a little extra something.

13th Birthday

My niece is going to be 13 this month, so I figured that she deserved an extra special card. It's not every day that you become a teenager. :)

I used the Doodlecharm cartridge, as well as the Don Juan cartridge. The cupcake, as well as the 13 are mounted with foam squares to add some depth. The cupcake is decorated with a variety of different buttons and rhinestones, as well as a glitter paper flame atop the candle. I used a cupcake stamp, as well as a 'wish big' stamp from Stampin' Up. A lavender ribbon, as well as lavender rhinestones were added to pull the purple throughout. I was really happy with how it turned out.

1st Birthday Boy Card

I forgot to post this card. I made it for my nephew's 1st birthday. It went with the scrapbook that I made him, and of course had to match the colors of the party! :)

I also used the doodlecharm cartridge for the cupcake, which is one of my favorite carts right now! The mini cupcakes and 'wish big'are both Stampin'Up stamps.

Baby Card

One of my friends asked me to make a baby card for one of her friends. The pictures are a little misleading, because the yellow isn't that bright. It's actually a pastel yellow.
