2018 - November - The Start on Christmas Cards and Gifts

With 18 great-nieces and nephews I chose to make something quick and simple this year for gifts.  I recreated a sucker cover from a die into DS to make mass producing faster.  I then folded money into a Christmas Tree and attached inside the holder.  The labels and tags were all done with print and cut feature in DS.  Love how they turned out.  (Original design was for larger sucker but when order  came they were smaller so I had to scale the design down.)

Another great card kit from Inspiration Station got me started on the first Christmas cards.  I changed something on everyone to make it my own. 


2018 - November Card - Great Niece

Always trying to make a card that reflects the person or something they like.  This precious young lady loves dogs.  This was a card kit from Inspiration Station.  I added red stickles to the heart on the dog and flocked the dog and created the inside.

2018 - August Cards and Creations

A great-niece is getting married in November, my tradition is to glass etch casserole dishes for those in the family.  This is my favorite one I've done so far.  

 Here is the bridal shower card I made to go on the gift.  All Cricut cartridges and an embossing die and lots of Stickles and Wink of Stella.

Birthday card quickie for a cousin using embossing folder and miscellaneous stamp.

I made an additional bridal shower card for my in-laws to give to my great-niece, their great-granddaughter.  This was a kit from Inspiration Station and a inside a download from a website.

2018 July Creations

A great-niece who loves to read I always struggle to find themes for but I love how this turned out.  Stampin Up stamps and dies along with a Lawn Fawn Slider die and various other stamps and punches.

My daughter's card, I gave her a store bought card but she seemed sad I didn't make her one, so I recreated this box card I had made similar a few years ago for someone else.

Twin great-niece and nephew cards started with a rhyme in my head of what rhymes with 9, swine! While attempting to create around that I failed to use the swine, only piggy bank.

2018 - Even More June / July Cards

Card kits are the greatest, while I waited for my computer to update I put this pretty card together.  It originally said something else so I cut the circle and used a word stamp I had that came with a butterfly (on inside).  You can never have enough birthday cards.

Another great niece is getting married in November, still waiting for my computer to update I made these two cards.  Both were from a card kit from Inspiration Station in Ovid MI.  

A great-nephew is turning 9 in early July.  I was thinking of rhymes with nine and kept thinking swine and ended up with Hamm from Toy Story Cricut cartridge and an very old Stampin Up Stamp. 

My son-in-law's parents watched our dog while we vacationed so I made this card from a Cricut Access project and added the writing inside and Pluto from a Mickey and Friends Cartridge.
