Break Time

If you have been following my blog you know that I have been awaiting the arrival of my baby. She is here! She was born June 14th and is perfect.

It is a lot harder to have a newborn then I could have ever imagined so I am taking a break from well everything but her. I am hoping to have some craft time again soon. But for now I would just like some sleep.

Picture frame

 I bought a frame for my brothers family for Xmas and wanted to add something besides just pictures.
 I put in these two sayings and basically scrapbooked the small sections.
I tied the ribbon around the glass then put it back together. I like how it came together.

Here are two cards I made a long while back and never posted.
The top card was from when I was on one of my favorite DT's Sew Many Stamps. They went out of business and it made me very sad. My coloring has improved a bit over time. I used my Spellbinders to cut out the oval and my Irock to add the gems to it.
This anniversary card was so pretty and I completely forgot to take pictures of it before I sealed it in plastic. I used my Cricut to cut out the cake.I added Stickles to the layers.

Birthday Cards

A friend of mine bought one of those make your own card kits and then of course never really used it. She gave it to me and I did not want to throw it away so I made some cards to send to OWH.
 All of the embellishments came from the kit.
 I used some DCWV birthday paper on all the cards. It is glossy and bright. I love it.

 I did add some Peachy Keen eyes on the balloons to spice them up a bit.

Male Turtle BDay Card

A simple male birthday card I made for my brother. I love turtles and this saying is fun especially for my brother. I added some distressed ink around the image. I used some manly papers and "screw" brads. Male cards are very hard for me because they are so boring for me. I love frilly and girly.

Owl box

I made this owl box from a Silhouette file.
I distressed the edges and used some fun DP. Such a cute little box.
Perfect for adding a little candy and giving as a cute gift.

Grad Card

 I made this graduation card using parts of the invitation I received from my nephews graduation. I used the insert for the front seniors page. I cut the year in a strip and used it on the front. I embossed some silver paper for the background and used his school colors for the card.
 I cut out the grad and cap with my silhouette.
 I used a stamp a bought at Hobby Lobby for the inside.
I cut the mascot out and put it on the back of the envelope. I used his name plate on the front of the envelope.

I did not have time to post this card after I made it so I thought I would wait to graduation time came around again. I hope it gave you some inspiration. My nephew loved that it was so personal.

Pink Birthdays

I haven't had a lot of time to craft in the last few months. Growing a baby is hard work. However I have several projects that I have not had time to post that I am working on. Here are two simple birthday cards I made.
 I used a Stampin up candles image. I added some color with Copics and added Stickles to the flame.
I embossed the background on the pink. I used my Spellbinders to cut out the stamp image.

Scrapbook Page~School Photos

I tried my hand at traditional scrapbooking for my husbands school pictures. I can tell you I am not a fan of scrapbooking. I love digital scrapbooking. So much easier and less messy, but that is my opinion.
I cut out a camera using my Cricut, also the letters for his name.

Mothers Day Flower Card

This is a simple card but I love how it came out. This card is pretty self explanatory. I used my spellbinders to cut he lacy circle. I added a couple pearl brads to dazzle this card up. The pop of the blue is just right.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. I am going to be a mother soon and am I excited! My mom is awesome and I hope my daughter will love me as much as I love her.
