Monogram Card

Hey everyone!

I know I've been falling behind on my posts lately, but as it so happens this weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge went hand in hand with a card on my to do list. Couldn't have been more convenient. :)

Challenge: Use a monogram.

And what better card to use a monogram on than a wedding card?

Thank Ewe Card and You're A Hoot! Card

Hey everyone!

So my last post was my entry for My Pink Stamper's design team call, and I told you that I would post the other cards I made with her inspiring colour challenge. Well, here they are!

My first one here, again, started with the colours. For some reason I decided to pull out ALL my animal stickers and I found one to go on every card. So I guess they all have an animal theme as well. Anywho! This one I was really happy with. It's simple but it still has the little details and I'm really happy with how everything lined up.

My second one I had fun with too. I can't remember what brand the stickers are (I went through a phase where I cut all the tags off the packaging because I didn't like the bulk, but now I can't tell you what brand all the products I used are! Yikes! I've stopped doing that for the very reason that as I use up the old and buy more new I will be able to tell you in the future what products I'm using,) but I'm fairly certain I bought them at Michaels.

Go Wild Card for My Pink Stamper's DT Call

Hey everyone!

So this card is my entry for My Pink Stamper’s design team call. Robyn’s blog was actually the first one that I ever started following and she is a constant source of inspiration for my crafts and even my daily life.

Challenge: Use turquoise, green, orange, brown and other optional colour of your choice.

I had a great time with this challenge, so I ended up making three cards :P. I had such a hard time deciding which one to enter! It came down to a vote and this one won because it’s the only one I made with ALL the colours from the challenge. I’ll post the others later but if you’d like to see them now, you can check them out on my facebook page.

Cards for My Mom's Entire Class

Hey everyone!

Wow. I barely posted last month! Sorry! It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I spent the last week visiting my parents and I had a blast. It was exhausting (it's less like a vacation and more like a volunteer effort :P I get put to work) but I still love every chance I get to spend at my parents. Anyway, my mom is a teacher and she asked me to make a personal card for every child in her class this year so that's what I'll share with you now.

There were 19 kids total. I didn't want to make them too complicated because she wanted so many but I still wanted there to be enough variety that they were all individual.
