2015 - Niece Birthday - Using Creative Time for Me Die

I love my Creative Time for Me dies, this one is great for gift cards.  Cup was cut from Birthday Bash.  Since I had to cut a few before I got the size where I wanted it to go with the paper, I stacked them on the front and used another with the heart cut outs inside.

2015 - Coffee Birthday Card

This card just came to be when I saw the papers in stack I got at Ollies for $1.99.  I'll have it handy when I need one with a Starbucks gift card in it.

2015 - Anniversary Card - Papyrus Modified

I was looking for inspiration for this anniversary card to make and this one was perfect except I felt the skirt was missing so I carefully removed the 2 of the flip flops, made a skirt and added it and then re-positioned the flip-flops.

2015 - Nephew Birthday

 I used Mickey and Friends font cartridge for the car on the cover and some various stamps I have.  I used the velum phrases and cut out corners then used the punch outs to add accents.

2015 - July - Great Nephews Turns 6 & Great-Niece Too!

One of my great-nephew's is turning 6.  He loves bow ties so I used a gem bow tie on Mickey for his card.  I also made duplicate card for another great-nephew & great-niece who turn 6 later the same month only change the color of the tie and did Minnie for her (lots of stickles for her).

June 2015 - Graduation

I lifted this idea with a few modifications off Cardztv Blogspot, Bumblebee Creations who made a similar card for a 3-D Challenge for CARDZTV....Graduation.  She credits: Holly Youngs Blog-Hog Wild about Stamping 

I did go to her site to learn how to make this, however I used 10 pieces of paper (same size as a bill) and 5 money bills (2 paper, 1 money, etc).  The face stamp is a Peachy Keen stamp. The hat was from Seasonal Cake Art cartridge.

I was able to get a box from Hallmark and made the tag off the Wild Card Cartridge.

June 2015 - Birthday for Reader

This card is for a niece who loves to read.  It was made using Camping Critters Cartridge and a digital I printed out on card stock, fussy cut and popped up on dimensional.  Added some googly eyelashed eyes, some stickles on the fire flame and rhinestones.

June 2015 - Youngest Great Niece Card

The youngest of my great nieces loves to swim so I made this Teddy Bear card for her 4th Birthday. (Used Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge and put some extra touches with fuzz on the towel and black stickles on the tan paper to make it look like sand.)

May 2015 - Great Niece - Minnie Mouse Card

Used Mickey and Friends cartridge, for some reason the purse cut way too big to go with Minnie but it makes a great money holder inside.

May 2015 - Nephew 11th B-Day Card

I got these punch out die cuts at a clearance sale of a Scrapbook place going out of business.  I love how this turned out, especially the back side view inside the card.  Boy cards are always a challenge for me.

April 2015 - Thank You Pop Up Box

This was my first attempt at a box card, it turned out okay.  I decided that I do not like making them like I thought I would.

April 2015 - Easter - Mikey Mouse Apron

My 2 yr old grandson is in to Mikey (this week), so I made him an apron when he helps mommy in the kitchen and does crafts for his Easter gift.  It was a free pattern I found on line.

April 2015 - Granddaughter's Easter Story Blocks

I saw Story Blocks on a Esty site, short on time and money I decided I could made these for near nothing.  I bought the blocks at Hobby Lobby, glued 2 together to make the rectangle, hand cut the squares of printed paper and used bought vinyl lettering.  My centering of the words are a little off but I'm happy with how they turned out.
