Right now I only do a couple of kinds of cards. So I was racking my brain trying to figure out how to use this weeks Designed2delight image on a card. I couldn't think of anything. But! At the back of my head I was thinking of a layout that I've been wanting to do. They say when you have inspiration like that that won't leave you alone everything that try to do instead won't turn out. For me 1/2 the time that is the truth. So I went ahead and did the layout and what do you know, the image fit perfectly and the layout came together quickly.
I think the only time that I have done tags is last year to put on christmas gifts. Don't be shocked. I only got my cricut last september. I plan on doing tags again for Christmas but other than that, I have no idea what to do tags for. For this week image (only if you participated last week) from Designed2delight was a couple of tags. I thought that they were super cute. I was thinking I could use it as a book mark...So I made one. I looked at what all of you guys do with them and how to decorate them and I tried my best. I'm getting better at my coloring and put myself in this project. You can't critic art right? what do you think?
I stepped out side of my crafting comfort zone this week as I made a Designed2delight card. I've been looking at a lot of blogs trying to see what the "fashion" is and to gain a better grasp at my style. I really like how this card turned out!
How I did it:
star card: wild card
hot pink layer: 5 1/2 x 4 3/4
pink polka dot: 5 1/4 x 4 1/2
the inner star is the cut out from the white layer from the front.
I don't think that it's too early to start Halloween cards. I love love the fall colors! For me they are easy to work with. I was amazed at how quickly this card came together. (side note: some people think that black and brown should not go together. I beg to differ. I have black hair and have brown skin. I think that they go nice together and I wanted to show that in my card) I love this cat. It reminded me of some cats I had growing up.
I did another card using a digi stamp from Designed2delight! (http://designed2delight.com/blog/ )I really love their images. The best part is if you do one every week as apart of the challenge you get a new image the next week instead of catching the free ones once a month. I'm really happy how this card turned out! What do you think? I was thinking baby girl.
How I did it:
will fit in a2 size evelope

inside stamp from studio 112
paper from color bok (green polka dot) and from personal stash
Over at designed2delight (http://designed2delight.com/blog/) we had to create a card using the pumpkin image that I used. I really like how this card turned out. Lately I haven't been posting much because I've been trying to rediscover my "style". I think this card shows a little bit of it. I think I could of done better but with the materials I have and lack of experience, I think I did pretty good!
How I did it:
base: 4 x 5 1/4
layer 1: 3 3/4 x 5
background on base: stampin up! sweet shapes
orange paper: colorbok
red leaves: stampin up! delightful dots
b: stampin up! big deal alphabet
flourish: stampin up! sweet shapes
pumpkin image: designed2delight ( colored with colored pencils and pastel pencils)
For the Whimsical Wednesday challenge we were supposed to use scraps to make a card. I am proud to say that I used nothing but scraps. (minus the gel pen, buttons, twine, and stamp) I learned how to do this type of card a long time ago and I can't remember who from. But who knew that all of this could turn into...
...This! Isn't it cute?! I used the majority of the scraps on the bottom half. I was thinking "area rug".
My pink stamper is doing a DT challenge for the next term! We had to do something with orange, green, brown, and turquoise. I've never done that color combination so it was a challenge for me. So I stepped out of my color combo comfort zone and tried my best. I'm really happy with the results! What do you think?
How I did it:
base: 5 1/2x 4 1/2
cream 1st layer: 5 1/4 x 4 1/4
orange layer: 5 x4
cut: country life: 4 1/4 in
cinnamon color inking
sukura white gel pen
calligraphy pen for sentament
1st layer: 5 1/4x 4 1/4
2nd layer:4 x 3 3/4
glues: mono, zip two way glue pen, and foam squares
Thanks for coming by! I really enjoyed doing this card! please leave me a comment!
I was looking at this stamp and I based a card around it. I also made 2 more like it for a set. I really like this stamp set. I can't remember what the name of it was. I'm really happy how the card turned out. When I finished I spaced putting the stamp saying that I wanted on there, so I put it on the inside. I says "it's a love thing." I wish I could put it on the outside but it wasn't on a single line.
I've just recently got into Digi stamps. There are a lot of websites out there who sell and have free digi stamps. You'll be seeing a ton of cards soon with these stamps. I especially love Tlc Creations. They are doing a give a way on their website: http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/ . I'm excited! They are giving away 3 sets of their digi stamps. So go on over there and follow the rules to enter.
My niece and I made this card. She picked out what she wanted and I put everything together. She wanted a star card for her dad. I did this for the father's day challenge at http://whimsicalwednesdays.blogspot.com/
How we did it:
Star card: wild card
# 1 Dad: celebrate with a flourish
I don't know if you can see if but I also did some inking around everything.
I made this card for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. We had to use the Pooh and Friends cloud. Once I saw that cloud I thought... baby. I was trying to make the card look soft and wispy like clouds. There are details on the card that you can't see. Such as around the base layer is a soft baby blue inking. I also used embossing glitter to give it a shimmer. I'm really pleased how it turned out.
I'm an online student. I'm taking a class about parenting. We were supposed to interview our parents and if we wanted to write them a thank you letter. So I made them a card. This is my brothers and me. I'm the oldest and then I have two sets of twin brothers. I know crazy! I'm really happy how well this turned out!
This is another weird dimension card.
How I did it:
purple base: 5 1/4 x 4"
Green 5 x 3 3/4
I can't remember the inner layers.
Stampin up! stamp
Target $1 stamp
Stampology paper flower
ek success markers
Inside of card reads: "The best examples we've ever had, was the undying love of Mom and Dad."
I thought that saying was fitting. I got that from a book my mom gave me called "The scrapbookers Best Friend" It's from Chatterbox and EK success
no matter how hard i tried it wouldn't turn the right way like it was supposed to. I didn't do this card to have a last who rah for spring. I did this card because I have an aunt spring and I really wanted to do this card exactly like this for her birthday. inside I wrote happy birthday.
Here is another graduation card. My little cousin graduated from kindergarten. Her brother got the other card and he graduated from high school. I called them and asked how they liked their cards and she told me she loved hers so much. I was excited to hear that.
Here is another My Pink Stamper Challenge. This was number 12. a kid's layout. I hope you like it. I spent the most time on this one. I don't have paper doll dress up so I had to break something out that challenged me greatly! It's called Couzzle. the two shapes on the first page and the kids came from the couzzle. I hand made them! That is why it took me so long!
I don't think that you have seen any of my layouts. hmm. I'm going to have to post them. This layout was done for another my pink stamper challenge. this was number 8. Summer themed project. We took pictures of my son last summer. We had a BBQ and he discovered corn! hope you like my layout!
I did this card for the my pink stamper challenge for national scrapbooking day and the paper cutz challenge. I gave this card to my mother-in-law for mother's day. I'm really pleased with it. I got the idea from Mary on Card's T.V. This is called paper quilting. When ever I think of mothers I think of quilts. If my grandmother were still alive, I would have given her a card like this one.
I did this card for the flaunt it friday challenge. It was a car on nifty fifties. I don't have that cart. so I did this one on locker talk. So this is what I came up with. I thought I would make road lines. I also really love this paper.
I made this card for the Cricut Cardz Challenge. The theme was anything beach related using any cartridge. This was a challenge for me because i have no beach cartridge. I did some searching and this is what i came up with: a pirate searching for treasure.
Forgive the picture. I put off making this card to the last minute and I forgot to take a picture of it. Thankfully I remembered on the car ride over and took a picture with my cell phone. It's a very simple card. I'm really happy how it turned out.
I made this card for last weeks flaunt it fridays challenge. We were supposed to use the Cindy Loo cartridge or a similar cut that is on that one. I didn't have Cindy Loo but I saw that there was a cat on there and I did have one on the Country life. (which i just got). I've been itching to do a card from the wild card (which I also got) so here is the result.
How I did it:
Scallop circle card:from wild card: cut at 5 1/4
circle layer: from george: cut at 4 1/4
cat: from country life : cut at 8 1/2
(this was a small cat on a chair. it is not on real dial size which i should have done. this was planned on my gypsy)
For today 365 card challenge we were supposed to draw our inspiration off of this image.
This is what I got. I don't know... I'm not that happy with it. It just came together that way. The image reminded me of a stamp that I had. I wanted to draw in some blue. I think blue and pink look pretty together. Maybe the wrong pattern of blue... hmm... Tell me, what could I have done better?
i wanted to do an easel card. this was my first one!

I had to think hard but I think I've come up with 8 interesting things about myself.
I'm a full-time student at BYU-Idaho online and a full time stay at home mom.
My favorite movie is Mary Poppins.
My favorite vegetable is an avocado. mmm..great on sandwhiches.
I'm 1/2 native american from the navajo tribe.
My favorite fruits are raspberries and cherries. can't wait till this summer.
I just graduated with my A.S. degree in General Studies and I'm continuing on to my B.S. degree in University Studies. I hope to some day continue on to a B.A. in Psychology and a masters to be a high school councilor.
I must have a target on my head because I get teased by everyone I know. They seem to think its fun.
I hope to some day go to Washington D.C. and go to the Smithsonian.
This was one of my first cards that I made with my cricut (minus the doodles and flowers). I recently found it while spring cleaning. I wasn't happy with it then and it felt incomplete. I added somethings to it. Now i love it!
How I did it:
Cut: B is for Boy
(if i remember right i cut it wrong and made it work)
I made this card for the flaunt it friday challenge. I think it would be a great father's day card. It's blank and half the time my cards are. why? because a lot of the time I can see other uses for the card. For example: this particular card can be used for father's day, a pick me up card for my grandpa who loves fishing, a random note, et cetera. I tried to use my scraps for this card so it has weird dimensions.
This is my cousin. She is giving away an awesome giveaway! I hope I get it. I know it's the 11th hour posting this but an extra entry is to blog about this. So if you would like a shot at getting free scrapbooking stuff go check out her blog.
