Easter cards...PEEP PEEP

Aren't they DARLING!!!! I love how colorful they are, so Springy and Eastery..HA HA
I did about 2-3 of each design that will cover all my family/friends.
I found the bunnies in the silhouette store. The big bunnies are cut @ 2.03"w x 3.0"h and the little ones are 1.35"w x .91"h. I embossed the background and attached the bunnies and tag with glue dots. On the inside I used the font PC Thick  pt48 and glued the letters down...argh What was I thinking? HA HA. lesson learned.

BUT WAIT!!! thats not all......to keep with the Easter theme
I made envelopes with bunny address labels. I cut the bunny @ 3.875w x 3.0"h and printed family/friend addresses.  (My Mom lives with me).
LOVE IT!!!!!












HA HA HA!!! even the mailman LOVED my bunny addresses....HA HA HA

Birthday card

LOL! made this card for my brother...
HA HA...I LOVE how it turned out. I used the cricut Animal Kingdom for the lion cut @ 2.62h and I used the Peachy Keen stamps for the face....HA HA isn't he ADORABLE!? then I used the cricut Lyrical letters for the NO LION cut @ .75h. The ribbon slider and the inside of card was done on the silhouette.

OH MY!!! I went to WalMart to get groceries and LOOK!!! I said to myself "OH MY, These would be  PERFECT for all those little embellishments. GREAT organization cause they are SEE THRU!!!! LOVE IT!!!" no more sticking brads and buttons on boxes so you'll know whats inside.
Theres 50 containers (2oz.) WITH LIDS! and for $3 thats like .06 cents a container. HA HA I think I can afford it......I found them in the paper plate/cups isle. After setting up my craftroom I'm TRYING to be a better crafter and I'm getting into embellishments. They look so NICE on cards!!!

Craftroom - total view

OK, Finally....here is my CRAFTROOM!!! LOVE IT.. LOVE IT!!!
After how many years (too many to count) of moving and reorganizing my crafts. Not to mention all the youtube videos and craft sites and blogs trying to figure out my craftroom...DUH? it finally dawned on me, it wasn't my crafts but the actual crafting area. If you look at all the previous posts, my craft area FACES A WALL and I was in a corner. I'm always facing a wall.....UGH!!!! THAT WAS THE PROBLEM!!! at least for me. That is why I finally put my crafting area (sort of) in the middle of the room and I'm NOT facing a wall. I can look all around......it feels so much better!!!! So in the before posts I had my crafting area on  shelving units (Container Store) and the jetmax cubes were always near by.......I've done the opposite NOW!  The shelving units are in the closet holding my excess crafts and the jetmax cubes are now my crafting area. The boards that create my craft area are 48"l x 24"w and I have 2 of them so my area is 48" x 48"...COOL HUH!!! and the jetmax cubes support the boards.

St Patrick's day cards

I know..I know...I changed my mind. For my cards I decided not to play with the paste. It was time consuming and wasn't coming out right and I had to get my cards DONE!! So I just cut everything out of cardstock and added glitter. I LOVE how they came out!!! I did change the size a bit, I cut the lil sham's at .64w x .50h and the Lucky w/shamrock at 3.70w x 3.50h (I ungrouped it) and cut everything seperately. I glittered the Lucky w/gold and the sharock w/green then glued it on an A2 card, the lil sham's I used the tiny glue dots to stick them down. I added the sentiment and made my envelopes and DONE!!!
Now all my family and friends will get a card....HA HA.
Just so you'll know....I got my package yesterday with the REAL embossing paste!!!! I can't wait to play!!!
BUT....FIRST I MUST REARRANGE/ORGANIZE MY CRAFTROOM!!!! NO playing this time till its DONE!!!!! SO SAD I KNOW....boo hoo...
