2016 - Christmas Gifts

I made these two types of cocoa holders and put money in with them for my great nieces and nephews this year.  Thanks to Robyn of My Pink Stamper and Emma from Creative Time for Me for their inspirations and products (Creative Time For Me = stamps and dies; slider card from Robyn).

2016 - November 9th Bithday

For my great niece who is my SIL's name sake. I used  Mickey and Friends and George cricut cartridges, cut HB with a die set, flowers punched with $1 punch, embossed circle with Swiss Dots embossing folder.

2016 - Welcome Baby Girl

Our niece had her baby two weeks early so I had to whip up a quick card.  Used Create A Critter and Gypsy Wandering cartridges.  Used my Cricut Air pens to write saying on cover and a Studio G "Congratulations stamp.  Tiny bows inside card are from a $1 stamp from Michaels.  Ran the background paper through Cuttlebug with dot embossing folder.

2016 September - Baby Sprinkle

Our niece is expecting a surprise in November, her twins are 7 yrs old and she has nothing left from them so my SIL held a Sprinkle for her.  I saw a similar card at the Hallmark Store and created with my new Cricut Explore Air.  I love the writing feature.  I found the watering can in Design Space.  The gift card holder is die from Creative Time for Me embossed.

2016 - Some of September Birthdays

My dear niece's birthday is in September, she loves Coffee drinks, so I created this by just cutting and gluing and using a die from Creative Time For Me, another die I had for the Happy Birthday and an embossing folder on the gift card holder.  I should have made it open at top rather than bottom, but know for next time.

Then I have a cousin who is turning 97 years old, she loves flowers, still plants not only a flower garden but vegetables too as she keeps up her house.  I made this from the CTMH Artfully Sent Cartridge and an embossing folder.

2016 - June Graduation

The 5th oldest of my niece's 13 children graduated from Homeschool and is going to a local community college with a highly rated culinary program to pursue her love of cooking and baking.  So proud of each and everyone of them as they move to their next journey.

2016 - June Birthday's

This Piglet and Bear card was for my great-niece who turned 5 yrs old.  Used Cricut Cartridge Pooh Font and Peachy Keen Stamps.

This balloon card just below is for one of my cousins.  Used an embossing folder and die cut balloons on pop dots and bakers twine.  Birthday stamp is an old retired Stampin Up.

 Another great-niece with a June Birthday, afterward I added lots of clear stickles to give the card more pop on the embossed background and die cut balloons, again on pop dots.  The "Happy Birthday to You" inside is a die cut.

2016 - May Birthdays

In May I have 3 birthdays in a row, then there is graduation.

I was able to fold up money and have sticking out of backpack that is popped up on foam dots.

For my great niece who is a piano teacher!

My BFF's daughter graduated, I put this envelope with money in this envelope and put it in a small bag that held two packages of Graduation Thank You cards and sheets of stamps.

 The boys are always a challenge for me but I like how this turned out.

2016 - April Birthdays

This first card was for my great niece who lives in Georgia (state bird and flower), second for my "sister" in law.

2016 - Easter Goodie Boxes

Thanks to Chic' N Scratch Stampin Up Blog I made these cute little goodie boxes, at the last minute for my grandkids (1 yr old & 3 yr old) for Easter.  Super easy and quick to make although I wish I would have used my corner rounder on the edges to soften them up.

2016 - March Two Great Nephew Birthdays

I often struggle with boy cards, but I love how these turned out (I made two).  However the Pixar Toy Story Cartridge has lots of little pieces and the bigger the images the better.
