Cardz TV Challenge: Back To School!

Hello Crafters!! Been away from crafting for a week as I was visiting my sister and family. Had such a nice time! Feels good to get back into the crafting mode and blogging! For the Cardz TV challenge, I created a scrapbook page, which is actually a page from a scrapbook of my nephew from birth to high school graduation. It's a gift for my sister. :) I used the Cricut Lite cartridge, Recess, for all of the cuts for this layout and some embellishments from Michaels. I also used the DCWV paper pad, Grade School. I had so much fun putting this layout together!

Happy Birthday Card For My Mom!

Hello crafters! Hope you all are having a great start to your week. It's certainly has been hot here the last couple of days so spending time inside crafting! lol.  My card for today is a birthday card I made for my mother. I used the same patterned paper as I did for the purse mini album that I made for her as well. This cute little girl and poodle is cut from the Cricut Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I used embellishments I had in my stash to decorate the rest of the card, a Martha Stewart edge punch and stamped it with a Scrappy Mom's stamp.

Christmas in July Challenge!

Happy Sunday everyone! Here is my card for the Cardz TV Christmas in July challenge and Paper-crafting Journey's Christmas in July challenge. It is a 5x5 stair step card. I used The Cricut My Community cartridge for the gingerbread house and the Cricut Lite cartridge for the train. I used patterned pattern from Recollections, the Evergreen stack from DCWV and the Welcome Christmas paper pad from Pebbles. I used various embellishments from my Christmas stash as well as some cute gingerbread ornaments I found at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from the Scrappy Mom's Christmas set, Winter Wishes. I had the best time making this card! I love everything gingerbread at Christmas time! :)

Purse Mini-Album- For my Mom's Birthday!

Hi everyone!
I made this purse mini-album for my mother for her birthday which is this week! Inside I included a wallet, a compact, cell phone, a passport (she's traveled to many countries with my dad over the years!),  sunglasses, key with key chain, and a lipstick. Each item in the purse has pictures of my family, even my sister's dog, Rocky! Some pictures are dated back to my childhood and some are recent. I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge to cut out the purse and items inside. I also used Laura Denison's accordion pocket binding for this mini album. (Thank you Laura for this awesome idea!) I used patterned paper, chipboard, rosette trim and braiding trim, pearl embellishments, button and butterfly embellishments from Michaels (Recollections), a butterfly charm from Walmart and a closure from Hobby Lobby. This was so much fun to put together and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. (This is my first mini album so I was a little nervous!) lol.
