Stars and Stripes

Hi eveyone! Here is a card I made for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog. You had to include stripes, stars, and a stamp. I used striped paper, a star brad, and the sentiment is stamped. Although you didn't have to make this a 4th of July card, it's that time of year and thought it would be fun. I also entered this card in Cricut Cardz Challenge. The challenge there is to make a 4th of July card.I hope you all have a great 4th and God Bless America!

Wedding Card

My brother is getting married in August and so when I saw a wedding card challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge, I decided to make this card. I used Sweet Treats for the cake and circle cuts. I used my swiss dot Cuttlebug folder and embossed the white square. I really hate it when the image comes through on your other layers! If anyone knows how to avoid this I would love to hear it. Because of that, I'm not very happy with this card! Thanks for stopping by. Take Care!

Fireworks Basket

Here is the 4th of July basket that my Mom and I did for Fantabulous Cricut's 4th of July challenge this week. We cut out all the stars and "fireworks" from Accent Essentials and then layered them together. We also used Sweet Treats for the rocket and the basket is a DS file I found and altered. We used florist foam and wires to hold them in place. If I can figure it out I will post the basket file for you all. Thanks for stopping and looking! Happy 4th of July!

Ahoy Matey!

This week over at Paper Playtime the theme is Ahoy Matey, so this is what I came up with. The ship is cut from PDDU, and the boy is cut from B is for Boy. (I just got that cart and needed an excuse to cut this cute fellow!) The "Ahoy" is from Create a Critter and "Matey" is from George. I cut severall ships out in different colors to get the look here. I hope you all like it! Take Care!

Tri Fold Shutter Card

Here is a tri fold shutter card that I did for a thank you. I never did a card like this before and thought since I had some time I would try it. It looks very difficult, but in fact it's pretty simple. I watched this tutorial on how to do it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su-3T3sd4r0
I used Hoot 'n' Holler for the owl and George for the ovals. Hope you like it! Have a great night!

Throwback Thursday Challenge #3

Here is the slider card I did for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. It had to be something altered or in 3D and from Paper Doll Dress Up. I've always wanted to try a slider card and thought this would be a great time to do it. It was a little confusing but watching this video by Joy from Everyday Cricut really helped. Here's the video link.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PK9jfNSAX_4
I hope you all like it....it was a little bit of a challenge, but the end result was worth it. Have a great day!
P.S. I'm still trying to figure out this posting thing, so excuse the jumbled postings. LOL!

Father's Day Treat Box's

Here are 2 of the Fathers Day treat boxes I made. The golf one I used my Design Studio and designed the tees, Father's Day saying, and flag using George. I used Create A Critter for the frame around the Father's Day saying. For the fish one I used Life's a Beach for the whole thing. I designed the Father's Day saying in Design Studio also. The box DS file I found here http://sopranoannie.wordpress.com/2009/09/09/updated-and-redesigned-annies-cupcake-candle-box-ds/
