A Quick Thank You Card

I loved these little pinwheels and after seeing this lovely paper I knew I had to make them and put them on a card or something... ended up putting this little "Thanks" card together. I just love it when a paper inspires me!

My Daughter's Birthday Invitations

I am so stinkin' proud of my daughter. She drew a sketch of how she wanted her invitations to look and asked me to cut out all of the images for her but I was not to glue anything together at all, that was her job. She is turning into a true paper crafter:o) The first photo is of her sketch and the next two are of my mock up of what it should look like and the final is her finished result. She did NOT like the Liquid Pearls I put on my cuts, said it was "too fancy". She chose all of the paper and the border punch as she also did not like the one I had picked out lol. Thanks for looking at what I feel is my daughter's brilliant work :o) She made twenty of them and fairly quickly too. She was uber proud that she was able to glue the ice cream top on keeping the swirls even.

Crop night with my sister

It's rare when my sis and I get time away from the sscrubbies (supportive scrapbooking husbands) and kids lately so we made time to have a crop night at the Little Blue House last friday and though we did more chatting than scrappin' I did get a few projects done. Some of the other cards need sentiments stamped onto them and some are for surprises so I won't post those yet.

The first one is a gift tag for my daughter's friend's birthday. She is having a swimming party and I loved this little decal gal from the preloaded Decals cart on the Cricut E2. I made the tag a generous 6 x 6 inch rounded square and used my Crop-a-Dile to put an eyelet for the ribbon so that she could also hang it in her room afterwards.

The second is a card for a girlfriend's new baby boy (not so new as I'm late with this card, but those that know me, what is new lol) Those are his initials and the baby bottle matches the bottle in the card stock even in color... took my inspiration from this lovely paper. EK Success punch along the bottom in that cool "plaid" look.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy. Leave me some love:o)

Surf's Up

I am so behind on my scrappin'! Thought I would finally get last year's Girl Scout Daddy/Daughter Dance photo scrapped since I now have this year's dance photo to scrap too. I used one of the newer seasonal cartridges, Luau for the cuts on this LO. I hadn't printed out my journaling before I took my photo of the LO so that's what's going in the big open space LOL. I love how the surf board looks like the one in the photograph (which happens to be my husband's surf board).
