2017 - September Birthday Cards

September is a busy birthday month on my calendar: Niece, nephew & cousin.

I failed to retake the photo after I added some fun embellishments to the inside of this card.  The Grover is from DS using my Cricut as well as the writing.   The Happy Birthday inside is cut with a die.

This is a DS project file that I altered a bit for a cousin who was celebrating her 96th birthday.

I always struggle with masculine cards, this was for my nephew who is a lawyer so I saw this project of folding paper to make this shirt card.  Stamps used on inside.

2017 - August Birthday Card

This card was created with a kit I purchased from my favorite scrapbooking store located about 80 miles from me, Inspiration Station in Ovid, MI.  The kit originally was a congratulations card that I altered into a birthday card for a very special great niece of mine.

2017 - June - First of 18 Great-Nieces and Nephew's to Get Married

The first of our 18 great-nieces & nephews is getting married.  Her sister is having a luncheon honoring the bride-to-be.  I bought these items off her registry and then glass etched them making stencils with my Cricut.  I put the casserole dish in an insulated carrier with a couple of dish towels also from her registry. 

(I fixed the hearts so they were all solid filled in after the photo was taken.)

2017 - June - Betty Boop for Friend's Grandma's 100th Birthday

A dear friend of mine who grandma is turning 100 in June asked that 100 of us send her cards for her grandma as a surprise.  I found out she likes Betty Boop so I found this postcard at an antique store, used some dies, stamps and downloaded the inside.  I love how it turned out.

2017 - May Birthdays - 2 Great Nieces and 1 Great Nephew

One of my great-nephew's is turning 13, boy cards are always challenging for me so I kept it real simple.  The number 13 is from a die set.

For our piano teacher niece!

For our great niece who is on a swim team.

2017 - Valentines

I typically don't make my husband's card, I buy one but I had this kit I got from my favorite store, Inspiration Station in Ovid, MI.  I added some texture to the tree with an embossing folder and made the inside myself using the writing feature of my Cricut Air.  He was very pleased.

2017 - Grandson Birthday

Hard to believe my grandson turned 4 on Feb. 13, 2017.  He loves Paw Patrol so I made this card for him using DS, uploaded the image, then did a print and cut.  The birthday banners are embossing folders.  The "happy birthday" words are from a die.

The first birthday of the year is my sweet great niece.  When I last spoke to her we talked about her love of photography, so I used my die from Creative Time For Me and Elegant Edges Cartridge with some Stickles.

2017 - Happy New Year

I scrap lifted this card from CardzTV, with my own twist on it.  It was created for my SIL's parents to write a note in letting them know how much we enjoyed seeing them over the holiday when they visited Michigan over Christmas (they live in FL).  Used Stretch Your Imagination cartridge as a print and cut.
