Happy Mother’s Day

I realize this is late but I did want to share the card I made for my mother for Mother’s Day.

I used the bonus stamp set that was included in the April Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you haven’t tried the Paper Pumpkin…well you need to. Who doesn’t like to get a nice surprise in the mail every month??!!

The Happy Mother’s Day comes from My Creative Time.  I thought it was perfect with the flower.  All the cardstock and paper comes from Stampin Up’s Bright Collection.

 

Until next time…have fun creating!!

Sparkly Birthday Card

I needed a birthday card for a girl that LOVES her bling.  After playing with ideas, here is what I came up with…

I forgot to take a picture of the inside (darn) but it does say Happy Birthday to you.  I also added a strip of the gold washi tape from Sale-A-Bration to the bottom of the card.

I am sure she will love it.

Happy Birthday Kelly

As you already know I have busy with my new craft room.  I did manage to make my sister a birthday card for her 41st birthday in March.  So I used the new Balloon Bouquet Punch from Stampin Up to help me out.

Here’s what I came up with…

The card is a full 8 1/2″x 11″ piece of card stock folded in half.  The Designer Series Paper is from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Here is the inside of the card…

IMG_0494.JPG

I cut out 41 balloons in total.  I also used some Wink of Stella on some of the balloons.  The sentiment comes from a Sale-A-Bration set called Perfect Pairings (unfortunately it’s no longer available).

Happy Birthday to You

It was my cute little niece’s birthday recently and I naturally had to make her a birthday card.  I used a lot of products from the birthday collection from Stampin Up.  They are fun and super easy to use to create cards.

I loved it so much that I had to make my mother one for her birthday as well….

Happy Anniversary??

Before I get to my project I need some feedback.  I am lucky enough to be getting my own craft room!!  As exciting as it sounds, it’s also overwhelming.  From paint colour to set up…etc…..it’s a lot to think about.  I am looking for any tips or suggestions for those that have craft areas.  What do you like about your space that is working for you?  What would you change?  I appreciate all of your help.

Now on to my project….

A family member had a birthday coming up and as a paper crafter it’s hard to buy a card (not that I haven’t done it).  The problem is that this card was for a male.  I’m sure I am not the only one who has a hard time making cards for men.  Here is what I came up with…

Here is the inside…

And an envelope to match….

Not too bad if I do say so myself.

3 x 3 Christmas Card

Sorry for another Christmas project.  I think this is the last one….

Here’s a quick card I made to go with a gift.  I made a few of these and used a couple of them as a tag rather than a card.  The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board.
