Happy Anniversary! MOJO144, JUGS38

1 Thought

Hi :-)

I hope you had a great weekend!  We spent most of it landscaping our yard.  It is looking GREAT!  However, it has put me even farther behind in the card department!  Oh well :-)

I made this card for my parent’s 37TH wedding anniversary!

The colors went along with JUGS38 color challenge.  The sketch is MOJO144.  The card is pretty easy to figure out.  I’m keeping it short…I really need take a shower after landscaping today!  Have a wonderful night.  I’ll be back soon with my dad’s bday card!

Thanks for looking!

Quick & Easy Graduate Card

1 Thought

Hi :-)

What a whirlwind it has been the last few weeks!!  School is finally out, but things won’t slow down for us until mid week next week.  Whew!

It’s hard for me to think that there are actually people out there who throw away cards!  I suspect many graduation cards only last a few minutes until they are trashed :-(  I decided to make quick, easy, single layer graduation cards this year for that reason!

WW and Pacific Point…good for boys or girls.  The base lines were scored using my ScorPal.  I stamped the graduation cap, cut it out then placed it on dimensionals.  The white layers are on dimensionals too.

I will be back soon with an AWESOME teacher gift I made.  It’s one of my fav’s!!

Have a wonderful day!

Gifts for Baby

7 Thoughts

Happy Wednesday!!

Today it’s all about the baby :-)  My sister needed a baby gift to give a friend, so guess who she called?? (I’m glad you did, Jos!)  This was another super fun project!!

I am entering this project, along with the card I’m showing you today, in the JUGS Design Team contest.  There are lots of awesome entries,  you should check them out!

So, here’s to baby!…

baby box and bag Josie 2 (Large)

baby box and bag Josie 3 (Large)

baby box and bag Josie 4 (Large)

Isn’t that fun?!  I love coordinating items!  What do you think about the bow?  I made it using SU! ribbon.  I used the Around Town Tote template from Papertrey Ink to make the bag.  I didn’t have a template for the box.

For the second part of the JUGS contest, we are supposed to create card based on this sketch:
JUGS DT SKetch (Large)
My take on this sketch is very nontraditional.  If you look closely, all the elements are there!

Baby dress card 3 (Large)

Baby dress card 4 (Large)

Baby dress card 5 (Large)

Isn’t it so cute and girlie!!  I found a dress template online, but couldn’t find a PDF for it, so I sketched out this one.  The scallops were made using decorative scissors.  Around the neck, I used liquid applique to “dot” a necklace.  The bottom half is embossed with CB’s Divine Swirl EF, then inked with VersaMark Dazzle.  To make the flower, I used Spellbinders Blossom Nesties to cut out the shapes.  Then I crumpled them up several times, layered them, and attached a button.  To get shimmer, I spritzed them with SU!’s new Vanilla Smooch Sptritz (which I already LoVe!).

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day :-)

Picnic Time!!!

Hello :-)

How’s your weather??  It’s snowing here!  We have had lots of snow/rain lately.  Days like these make great crafty time!!

I have a couple of projects to show you today and tomorrow.  JUGS is having a contest in search of a new Design Team member, so I’m giving it a shot.  Wouldn’t it be FUN to join the JUGS girls?!

I am so excited to show you this project!  I have had this idea in mind for quite a while.  I finally decided to turn my idea into paper.  Picnic anyone??

Happy Tuesday!!

I’m excited to show you my project today.  It is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation, or just someone special this spring!  It’s a garden book…

Garden Book 2 VLVApr2010(Large)

Garden Book 3 VLVApr2010(Large)

Garden Book 4 VLVApr2010(Large)

Garden Book 5 VLVApr2010(Large)

Garden Book 6 VLVApr2010(Large)

Garden Book 7 VLVApr2010(Large)

Isn’t it awesome?!  For the sentiments, I printed a springtime poem onto Pale Plum CS, then punched it out with my SU! Modern Label Punch.  You could use any poem you want, depending on what you were putting in the pockets.  I think it would be fun to put tea bags, hot cocoa, skin care samples, etc. in the pockets for something different.

Have a wonderful day!

Baby Gifts…wrap ’em up!

Hi :-)

I can’t believe our weekend is almost over!  Oh well.  I hope you had a good one :-)

I have a baby gift to show you today.  I make hooded baby towels and have them embroidered with the baby’s name.  Along with this, I made baby sock cupcakes.  I used another one of Lauren Meader’s templates, Ready, Set, Wrap (Papertrey Ink), to “wrap” the cupcakes…

baby ready set wrap 2 (Large)

I hope she likes it!  Check out more creations using Lauren’s templates at the JUG’S blog!

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

Happy Saturday!

I’m excited to show you what I’ve been up to.  I have been making boxes to demo at our local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting.  I ended up with a total of five boxes.  I will show you my favorite one first…

My fav:
Pack a picnic Red 1(Large)

Pack a picnic Red 2 (Large)

Pack a picnic Red 3 (Large)

The rest…
Pack a picnic Pink 1(Large)

Pack a picnic Pink 2 (Large)

Pack a picnic Pink 3 (Large)

Pack a picnic Baja 1(Large)

Pack a picnic Baja 2 (Large)

Pack a picnic Baja 3 (Large)

I modified the template to make a rectangle box…
Pack a picnic MOD Rose 1 (Large)

Pack a picnic MOD Rose 2 (Large)

Pack a picnic MOD Rose 3 (Large)

Pack a picnic MOD Artichoke 1 (Large)

Pack a picnic MOD Artichoke 2 (Large)

Pack a picnic MOD Artichoke 3 (Large)

Whew!  I know this is a lot for one post. :-)  I’m going to keep this summary as brief as possible.  The Pack a Picnic template is by Lauren Meader, and can be purchased at Papertrey Ink.  I modified her template to make the square boxes.  Don’t they look like a recipe box?

The edges under the lids were cut using SU! and Martha Stewart border punches.  The decorations on the lids were made using punches, Nestabilities, and the SU! Clear Flower Die.  SU! buttons and stickles were also used.

So, which box is your favorite??

If you have any questions, please ask!  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
