Who's That Baby

This is a project that I made with my friend Lori she had a board she was decorating for her work. It was whose that baby. We used all kinds of kids themes for the board!

Masculine Birthday cards

Here is the card I made for my Dad's birthday! I ran a piece of card stock through my xyron and then cut long strips of  paper and then just put then in random spots to start and the just did every other paper. Great way to use up old scraps!! 

Here is another few examples of this technique!!

Wow I can't believe it is August already... I have been out of commission for awhile. We had to move. I hate moving. Moving is never fun. The only thing that is good about this move is we are in a better place!  God has been apart of this move and we are grateful for the new opportunities this has brought to our family. Our kids are in the same school districts and we moved up the road into a great neighborhood!  The yard is flat and we have a flat driveway!!  The trees are all around us and there is a wonderful deck that we have enjoyed already! We have had deer in the yard 3 mornings and there is a pond that has ducks that have visited our yard too!!  It is a little cramped for the kids in there rooms but they are adjusting well. It is easier for the older boys to keep their room clean! As an added bonus for me I now have a craft area for my very own that I can craft and keep it out and not have to clear out for dinner!! Pics to come when I get it set up! For now I am still unpacking little bits at a time. I have not had the urge to make anything for awhile now and hope that my mojo will come back soon!  Thanks

Been busy!!

Hi all, 
Been so busy lately! I finished up my Father's Day Cards!! and they were mailed out on time!! I had 4 to make! We send one to our parents from our kids!! So here they are!!
 For Grandpa I used an image from The Cake Everyday Sampler and welded it together to make a background. Then I used the Chomas Creations glitter gel pen and holder to print the background! Then I welded and cut the word out and matted it and there you have it!!
 For my FIL I wanted to make something different. I found this tutorial on the Splitcoaststamper's websight. I used my cuttlebug to emboss my velum and it all came together!!
 For this card I just wanted something simple but eye catching. I love the versatility the Chomas Creation pens give me! This card came together very easy!!

 This is the card I had the the most fun with!! The sentiment is from the Father's Day Cart. I used the Chomas Creation pen again!! Then cut the silhouette. The paper for the last two projects was from Creative Memories. 
Hope you enjoy!

New Card w/ tissue paper.

I belong to a lot of yahoo groups and got an e-mail update from one of the crafty lady’s asking us to check out a new technique!

Terri over at Ramblings of a Texas Craftroom has a great tutorial video on how to make the tissue paper that you used for gift bags into a great card!  I don’t know about you but I always think that the tissue paper always looks so cute and why can’t they make matching cardstock so I could make a card out of that!!  Well thanks to Terri you can!  Not only is tissue paper cute but it is fairly inexpensive and you get a lot of bang for your buck!! Here is the link for her blog post and video!!

Tissue paper tutorial and video

Here is the card that I made right after watching the video!!


Hope you enjoy and make some great cards too!!
