Some Recent Cards

I recently made a couple of cards that I thought I'd show off! The first is a Christening card I made for a co-worker. I made it blue since it was for a little baby boy and found this great cross on my Cricut Wedding cart. I used a glue pad to cover the cross with glitter and then used glossy accents to set it. The bookplates are also from my Cricut cart. and the flowers are from Hero Arts. I love the way it came out, but more importantly my co-worker loved it!

This second card I made to send to a friend. I recently started buying stuff from Crop Chocolate and bought a pack of the Making Memories Anthology paper. First off, CC is super cheap and has some great deals, so it was a score. Second, the paper made excellent cards since it has a white backside and is a little bit thinner than CS. All I had to do was cut a card form and fold! I love how the colors are soft and make a great "hello" card. I used a sketch from Mojo Monday.

That cute little birdie stamp is a Hero Arts stamp too! Love their stuff! Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and I will be back later this week to share some great LO's I've been working on!

Nobody Wants To Be The Last One

I had so much fun this past weekend and tonight working on this LO! When I saw the challenge at Scrapping The Music this past week to create a LO with the lyrics from Nickelback's song Gotta Be Somebody I knew I had to do it! After reading the lyrics through I decided to scrap these pics of my Mother In Law's Cat and kittens. She had gotten the basket to put their toys in but the cats all love to sleep in it instead. She decided to put a blanket in and now they basically all try to squeeze in at na
p time! It's so cute but they don't all fit in there, which is where the idea for the LO came from. I decided to use a sketch from Let's Scrap since it looked like so much fun. Enjoy!!

What is it about these banners that we all just love??

Spring Beauty

Here is the latest LO I made. We have a Cherry Tree right outside of our condo that I get to see every morning in the Spring before work, loaded with it's beautiful flowers. It certainly is the best remedy for those gotta-go-to-work blues!

I used part of the Fancy Pant's Road Show kit from this month's The Scrap Room kit and the sketch Julie Bonner made for The Scrap Room this month.
Other supplies: Bazzill CS, trim, ribbon, buttons, pearl brads, vintage hat pins, American Crafts Thickers and Rub-On Alphas, Jenni Bowlin Butterfly

Happy Mother's Day!

A little early but Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in the world. Whether biological or not, you are what makes the world a better place! I'm wishing this a little early since I won't have time to stop in tomorrow since we are visiting both sets of parents. Here are the cards I made for my mother and mother-in-law:

I used a new ribbon-rose tutorial I found at the blog Ideas for Scrapbookers to make the flowers and they are soooooo stinkin' easy! These are literally my second and third ones. I love the cards and they each have their own personality, just like our moms! I used a sketch from The Scrap Room for these.

My New Favorite Layout

I made this layout using a sketch from Let's Scrap and I used a song from Scrapping the Music from a few weeks ago. The song was Will Smith's version of "Just the Two of Us" and one of the lines goes.....Just the two of us, Building Castles in the Sky. I immediately though of a pic of my two cats in the window. When I saw the sketch I knew that it was perfect to use and I wanted to make a whimsical fun page of my two cats enjoying their window seat. I just love how it came out! The Bling frame from Making Memories really adds the perfect touch!

Bad Blogger!

Wow, this month just flew by! I can't believe it's been so long since I blogged! In a couple of days I will be back to share some LO's I made this month but until then I will share a LO I made today, National Scrapbooking Day! This is a LO for a friend so I didn't put any pics on it. This was made using a sketch over at Sassy Lil' Sketches this week. The only thing I had to do was rotate one of the pics in the sketch. Otherwise, the perfect sketch! Sorry about the horribly crooked photo but I have already mailed the LO!
