Birthday card

Card for my nephew. Thought it came out kinda CUTE!!!
The card is 9"h x 7.75"w (fold in half 9"h x 3.88"w) it fits a legal envelope.
I used the cricut Create a Critter cart and when glueing all the layers I was not paying attention and put glue all over the light green layer...the glue was exposed....AAKKK!!!! Whats a crafter to do????
When in doubt FLOCK IT!!!! HA HA HA....I added light green flock...LOVE IT!!! I embossed the top layer with cuttlebug Tiny Mosaics. For the words and sentiments I used the silhouette and I added my own diy star buttons. The reason I made this size card is because I'll be putting cash inside and I won't have to fold it. Now everything will stay flat and no bulk. EASY MAILING!

Witch's Boot

I'm still here....I've been very busy crafting! I'm starting early for Halloween..YEPPIE!! I'm going to make 50 witchs boots and take them into work on Halloween. So I'm starting early for a change. I've gotten 28 already made....I make about 4 a week so you do the math...ha ha ha
Isn't it PRETTY!!!! its hard to get a good picture of a black boot. The boot and sentiment can be found in the Silhouette store.
I followed this tutorial -

I did what Kathy did (3rd comment down) I glued the tabs to the outside. Then embossed the extra layer, I also embossed the sole with dots(better traction...ha ha ha) I have 10 different (halloween) colors of twine too, just to mix it up a little. After tieing the bow I added a little glossy accents on the knot so it wouldn't come untied.
I little bag of  M&M's will fit nicely inside....

4th July card

Here's my 4th July card. The card came from the Silhouette store. When I saw this I thought it was ADORABLE!!! So different than the "standard A2".  WARNING! theres A LOT OF LAYERS!!!
After doing the front, I was exhausted and went for a simple print n cut for the inside. Which is also from the silhouette store. I know the inside looks dull....but I'm tired of this card and I wanted it DONE!!
Oh, the boots and the trim on the hat were double heat embossed(looks like patent leather-SHINY!LOL). The circles on the boots and hat and the trim on the suit were heat embossed with gold.
LOVE how the card came out!!!my family/friends are gonna LOVE IT!!

Well my card needed a special envelope. So I went to HL and found some paper and using
"Kreate-a-lope" I was able to make an envelope for it. I was upset that the envelope maker didn't make this size. Luckily from the good ol' days when QVC had crafts I got the "kreate-a-lope. Its a KEEPER NOW! I was going to give it away since I had the envelope maker. LOVE the envelope!! So PATRIOTIC!
The card uses an office size envelope, I could of used a plain white one but how unpatriotic would that have been??? LOL its the 4th July!!!

Anniversary card

Anniversary card I made for my brother.
Its OK, I forgot to chalk the edges of the tags, I forgot to emboss the card. HA HA
I guess this is what I call my "thought was in it but I forgot" card. HA HA HA
I'm going to have to start making a check list of things to do when making a memory isn't what it used to be.....
its hard to see but I glittered the numbers. That I remembered!

Yes, I checked my math....theres 7 leap years. (365 x 29 = 10,585 + 7 = 10,592)  At least I hope I added correctly????

Fathers Day card

My dad passed away 4 yrs ago, so I make fathers day cards for my brother and ex-father in law.
I used the cricut cart. Everyday Paper Dolls and the silhouette for all the sentiments. PLUS! I added embellishments: sequins. Cards look so much better with embellishments!!!

Embellishment drawer

Here's my embellishment drawer. Its the 2dr Recollections cube (it came with the dividers).
LOVE IT!!!!! It's organized by color and I have sequins, diy buttons, diy colored brads and diy enamel dots. It may look almost full... HA! theres 6 sections per drawer and I still have another drawer, so.....
each color will get its own section...Plenty of room to add MORE embellishments.
The drawer unit is to the right of where I sit to craft (used to be my stencil drawer but I moved my stencils). Now when I need a little something, I just open the drawer and see all my choices....
Opps..HA HA looking at the picture, the colors are backwards. I'll have to fix that! I have OCD when it comes to my crafts!!! HA HA HA
