I made this card with my new machine! It's for my sister in Ohio - and I LOVE it!!! This was using the "Wild Card" cartridge for the card/bird. Then the "Straight from the Nest" for the heart and the sentiment. I am loving being able to make my own envelopes, but I'm going to have to invest in a lot more tacky tape!

I made these two graduation cards for a cute lady I work with! She needed one for a boy and one for a girl. I thought they turned out really cute!
The tree card/envelope is from the 'Wild Card' cartridge with the little bird in the tree. The graduate card is from "Everyday Paper Dolls" & the sentiment came from the "Wild Card" cartridge.

One Year Page

I made this simple page for my sister! I almost think it need a little something else, but I can decide if that's just because it doesn't have any photos in it yet! I only used one cartridge (doodlecharms) for this page and some stickers and a stamp I had. I bought the stamp about 6 months ago and knew I wanted to use it for something (just wasn't quite sure what) but this seemed appropriate.

Birthday Cards, cont.

These are the other six cards from Saturday!

Birthday Cards!

I spent Saturday last week making cards with my friend Alison, she is now on the 'Birthday Committee' at her new job and took on the assignment of making 8.5 by 11 cards for all the 51 people in her department! So we got a good start on Saturday and finished 14 cards! I'm taking credit for all of them, because I did most of the work. (hehe!)
I have a few close up shots and then some group shots of these cards, there were to many to do an individual shot for each one! Alison brought them to work on Monday and they were a huge hit! Her boss has already picked out which card she wants for her birthday. So this has put me way ahead of schedule, and Alison will be coming by this Saturday as well to do some more simple cards (we do need a total of 51!).

Poster Board!

I worked on this for about 3 hours last night! It's for an auction my co-worker is organizing for her daughters school. All of the text is from 'Cuttin' Up', and of course the "Everyday Paper Dolls' in the lower left hand corner.

Missing You

Another card for my sister, who is currently in Ohio! This is another sketch from Paper Crafts, and I really didn't want to use this sketch. But, now that it's done I think I may do a few more like it, very cute!

Three birthday cards

I finally got a new camera, and you can really see the difference in the pics of these cards!
I made these three birthday cards this weekend. I have been working my way through my latest Paper Crafts magazine, I am trying to use each of the 'sketches' they have and do my own take on it. So far I think they have turned out pretty cute!

Very bad picture of a very cute card

I used the 'everyday paper dolls' cartridge for this and made two cute girl missionaries! The skirts are a little short, but I LOVE it! I didn't see how bad this pic came out until I had already put the card in the mail.

But, I got a new camera! So better pictures from now on!!
