Bear Birthday Card

My sweet daughter has another birthday party to go to this weekend, not to mention her own parties... she has a bear themed one on Saturday and I thought it would be so fun to make a bear shaped card she could sign.  She wanted pink on it and when I got it finished and presented it to her she was truly giddy about it and told me she might not want to give it away.  I was so happy to hear that!  I feel that way about some of my handmade things, so I'm happy she got that gene!  Thanks so much for stopping by...

Wow... Sorry about this image.  It's the "Happy Birthday" from Create-a-Critter in brown and pink...

Ready Made Scrapbook

I have been working like crazy for what seems months to do this book for my cute friend Courtney.  She just had the sweetest baby girl in October and I wanted to do a little memory book for her.  It was 20 pages (10 two page layouts), and  I really loved how it turned out. I used the Cricut for everything...  The 8x8 squares for the pages, the mats and the journal blocks and tags, and of course, all of the cute images.  It was so much fun!  That certainly is an amazing tool.  Thank you so much for visiting!

My Cute SIL's Halloween Project

I have the most darling SIL.  In fact, she was the one who took it upon herself to teach me about crafting.  And boy, am I glad she did!  She bought these wood blocks at our local Scrapbook Store and decoupaged them and glittered them up and made them as cute as can be.  She's amazing.  She did 5 sets of these in what seemed like no time, and I was soooo excited that she gave me one!  I will cherish it forever, and my girls LOVE to look at it.  Thank you Missy for sharing your talents with me.  And, for helping me become the crafter I am today.  

Halloween Treat Bags

I realize Halloween has long since passed, but I had made these treat bags for a party my daughter was going to.  I used Mini Monsters, and I have to admit that I LOVE that cartridge.  It has lots of layers, and sometimes those aren't too fun to glue, but they look so sweet when they are finished! I made 15 bags and didn't have one left over.  They were so fun and a big hit!

Thanks for visiting, and stay tuned for a premade scrapbook I have been feverishly working on... Can't wait to deliver it so I can share pictures.
