Baby Boy Gift Mini-album

Hey! I made up this mini-album card. I just love how cute it is! Most of the papers are from Kaiser Craft - Lullaby, an older paper line. To start out I took this wonderful image and layered it up with spellbinders. I used some stickles on the moon and blanket. I added some bling too. For the background, I layered up some papers, did some sewing and inking and took some ribbon and made a nice bow! Then I took a yellow spellbinders mat and placed it on top. I added the die of the baby, flowers/brad, and the sentiment I made and printed from MS Word. For the inside I used more ribbon, bling, flowers, brads, and a few more cut digi images and sentiments. After that for pages 4 & 5, I made a pocket using an EK Success Die and tucked a little tag in there. Plus you can put a gift card in there too. To bring it all together I used another spellbinder die for the place to write a sentiment to the recipient. Lastly there is another hidden tag on the right side of the card, with a big sized mat that a picture or journalling can go!

Guitar rocks

Hey everyone. I made up this great male card. I love these papers, really just scraps from my extra papers! So I sewed this black/silver paper strip to the card and then die cut this wonderful silver paper with spellbinders. I used pop dots to stick it out a bit. I added some crystal bling on the strip and then I added this wonderful guitar to the die. I added 3 little black bling too to add a bit of interest, plus more crystal bling on the guitar to match the others. Lastly I made up this sentiment and layered it up and adhered it to the card! That was it!

Sparkly Girl

Hey! My last posting for today is this wonderful card. I took this yellow paper and sewed 2 red squares on. I then layered it on this blue cardstock and then wrapped a ribbon around. I then adhered it to the red card base. I took this sweet digi image and layered it up with the same blue cardstock I used to layer the card up. I added some bling here and there, used some stickles to add some sparkle, a flower/brad, and then this great sentiment!

Vintage & Elegant

Hey everyone. Well I made up this little mini album card. I love this paper line documented. I can't seem to get enough. I think Michaels bought the line and they have the same paper, so looks like I will be able to get more of it! But simple stories was the one who first created it. So to start I took a strip of polka dots and sewed it to the mat. I then adhered it to the card base. I stuck some Tim Holtz paper on and then layered it with this envelope. I used some of the documented paper to mat it up. I lastly added some bling, a button, a couple of metal elements, and this wonderful fibre for the tag.

For the inside, I used these beautiful dies by Spellbinders to create this mat that I popped up with pop dots. For the mat in behind, again I did my sewing. I think it adds so much. Lastly I added some bling. For the 1/2 page beside, I stamped a Tim Holtz stamp and added a few bling.

I made this little pocket for this tag and again used some of the documented line to finish this up. A "enjoy" sticker from Facades line and some bling. I wanted to keep the last page simple so I just threw in a couple of Tim Holtz paper squares, a paper clip, a lock, and this wonderful metal element. Ok maybe it wasn't so simple, but I like it!!!
Lastly you can see the pull out tag coming from the side of the card. I kept it simple so someone could add a picture!

Bears n stripes

Hey! I love this card! I took this recollections striped paper from Michaels and then sewed up this grey strip, which I used a Martha Stewart punch on! I then layered it up with some really nice blue cardstock and sewed it together. I then wrapped a ribbon around and then adhered the whole thing to the grey card base. I took this wonderful image and cut it out and then used some stickles on the present. I found this wonderful sentiment, printed it, and then used a 1" circle punch to make this sentiment. I finally added some bling and a few flowers to match and add some interest. I love this card, it is so cute!

Oh so funny.

Ha! I love this card. What a great image! I took this image and matted it up. I used some stickles on the hearts for some sparkle. This great polka dot paper matched perfectly. I sewed this strip of hearts onto the polka dot paper and then added this MFT die cut on top. I added the sentiment on top of that. I matted the mat up first onto red paper and then onto the white card base. I added some bling, flowers, brads, and the lover sticker to finish it up. Love it!

Anniversary Bliss

Hey, I love this card I made for a friend. I used a Martha Stewart Punch and punched the silver paper around the page and layered it on white. I used this pretty image of the wedding dress/suit. I love the blue on there. I did some photoshopping to get the names into the hearts and then I doubled it up so it looked layered.
I love this side view of this card, it shows the layers.
Here is the inside, again with the silver paper and some sentiments. I love this image of the bride and Groom and I love the black velvet ribbon too. There is a doily that is a die cut and then this was made for someone who is quite religious, so there is a scripture there. I added a few hearts, bling, and a silver ribbon die cut too.
If you notice there is a tab, that is for a pull out for more signatures. I was told this card needed lots of places to sign, so I made an additional pull out. But you can see the continued features of the silver paper and silver ribbon and again the same image from the front.
Here is the pull out tag, nice and simple, but sweet!

Happy Sunday!

Hey everyone. It is Sunday and I had some time to post a few cards. I made this card up. I love the sentiment, seas the day. It is very inspirational. I also think this makes a great male card with the browns and such. This card was quite simple and fast to do. I took the image and photoshopped it to be brown. I die cut it with spellbinders and then layered it up with a black backing die. I added some bling to finish up the image. I took this great paper and then used a border I die cut from MFT. I then wrapped a ruler ribbon around. I added some flowers/brad and the sentiment to finish it up. Sometimes it doesn't take long to make a great card!!!

Beary boy

Hey, made this baby card up ! I started out with the silver paper from recollections. I'm not sure if they sell it anymore, because I went to buy more I couldn't find it! I embossed this with a spellbinders embossing folder. I love that look. Then I had a strip of this striped paper left form another card so I used it on this card and sewed it to the silver paper. I backed that onto some blue card stock and then wrapped some twine and made a bow around it. Then I adhered it onto the card base. I took this sweet bear and die cut it up with spellbinders. I added it and then some flowers/brads. I love this sentiment from Amy R, cc designs. I took my we r memory keepers bunch and punched this interesting punch to make this neat tag. Lastly I added some bling (because I have to on every card it seems!!) Then it was done!

Hey! I am in love with teal and pink! I did a bit of sewing with this card and I love this pink ribbon I got from michaels. I think I am going to use it up within this week! I took this sweet image and then layered it up with spellbinders. I added some bling and used stickles on her dress. I added this little bow I found that was sweet. I place this beautiful flower with this pink shiny brad. I placed this great sentiment with these stickers I think I have had for years, and lastly I added some bling under soul and I was done. This was a fun card, lots of items but it all works as the colours all match!

Delicious!

Hey everyone. Well I just made this card the other day and put it up on ebay and it has already been sold...guess it is pretty cute! Anyways, about the card! I started out with this wonderful Bo-Bunny paper line and added this journalling tag from another paperline. I like to do this and layer it up. I sewed that journal tag onto the pink paper. I also inked some wonderful pink ink around the card mat. Then I adhered it to the black card front. I used this flower/sticker from Martha Stewart. Usually I don't like much Martha, but I did like these flowers. I embossed this wonderful sentiment using the Stampendous shabby pink embossing powder. The sentiment is from Amy R's and CC designs set. I love Amy R! I love this with the glitter in it! Then I added this amazing bling over top! I added a flower and a brad to finish it up. I really love this card, it is really pretty!

Older western

Hey! Here is another father or western card I made up. I like the older look to it with the inked edges adding some brown to the picture of the father and son. I did a few layers with some papers. There are 5 layers in this card! I just noticed that this card isn't sewn which is quite unique for me!!! I added these cowboy boots stickers and this golden key/lock and ribbon to the card too. Lastly I added a few bling on the side to make sure that corner had something small in it too.
