2019 March - Busy Card Month

My dear childhood friend lost their granddog this month and I created this card using paper from a Paw Patrol pack, a Cricut Cut and Draw for saying (Fontastic Fonts - DJ Smooth), Paw Print is from Disney - Mickey and Friends cartridge and border embossing folder for paw prints.

Son-in-law's parents are also neighbors, will be returning from their winter home.  A card to welcome them home.  Cuts are from: 50 States-Michigan, Plantin Schoolbook-heart, Create a Critter-house, writing on cover-Baby Steps cartridges.

This is a card kit I had such fun putting my own touches to changing from a get well card into a winter birthday card.

Another card kit I personalized.

I can never have enough masculine cards.  Ran through embossing folder, print under balloon was done Cricut, used dies for balloons and wish inside.

Simple card using Artfully Sent - Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge.  Used flower cut out and shaded on inside flap, stamping with a generic birthday stamp.

Again with the masculine cards, two great-nephews have birthday's a week apart.  One is a hockey player, the other is turning 13 ( I added a "13" on the left inside after photo was taken. ) The test on cover is using the writing feature with the Cricut - Cambria and Eritta Script fonts.  Basic circle shape and Duck Tape Pennant off Simple Shapes.  Love the embossing die to get that manly look.  I then added various stickers and velum sentiment wishes.

2019 - February

Nothing much going in January, but February starts the year of birthdays every month thought. Also there is Valentines Day which is also my husband and I's anniversary moving into together. This card was kit I got from Inspiration Station that I personalised with a few extra hearts on the cover and did the inside with the help of my Cricut Air.

The above card is for one of our great-nieces using Stampin Up Love and Affection stamps and the wish on the inside is a stamp from Hobby Lobby.

Nephew suddenly lost his father; first card is for him, his wife and family (writing is French Script done with Cricut, bottom scallop cut was done with scissors); second card was for his mother who I've known for years (Sending Love and Sympathy off Simple Every day and Cherry Blossoms free images). Both were stamped inside using a Hobby Lobby stamp.

2018 Christmas Card, Gifts and Birthdays

Here are more Christmas Cards I made.  Some are from a class I took from My Pink Stamper using Stampin Up products.  The ornament is a Cottage Cutz Die.

For our great nieces I made floating ornaments.

For some good friends I etched a trivet and an ashtray.

Brother-in-law's birthday card using my new die I got from China (against my better judgement but 1/16 of the price of the Stampin Up one).  This was my first shadow box card.

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.
