Week 4 Layouts and Cards

Ok here I am one month down and still going. My layout this week was an old Stuck on You Sketch I had from awhile ago. Very simple. I cut out Daddys Girl from the Hannah Montana cartridge. I got out my flowers in my stash that had pink green and orange and played arond with combos of them. I placed pink rhinestones in the centers of the flowers. I also grabbed a orange and green ribbon from my stash just to give it a little extra. I loved the way it turned out.

My nephew turned 15 this week. Wow I cannot believe it. He grew up soo fast. So this is a card I made for him I cut out the stars from the George cartridge and put Stampin Up glitter around the edges. All the cardstock and patterned paper is from Stampin Up also. The stamp is clear mount Well Scripted. The border punch is the scallop punch
One of my Valentines cards I scrap lifted this one... I {heart} Hearts stamps the smallest one was cut out and popped up. Border punch is from Stampin Up The sentiment stamp is from papertrey called Signature Greetings. I just got these clear mount stamps and love love love them already. They come in a clear cd case and are so easy to store and to see all the stamps in each case.
My choo choo stamp from Stampin up and the I {heart} Hearts stamp for the little hearts coming out. I placed rhinestones as the wheels. and the Valentine Stamp was a hostess set from Stampin Up as well. The background paper was a stamped dots background stamp that I got at the Swap Meet a long time ago.
This card is cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge. Soo cute. I love it. The sentiment stamp is a set from Papertrey Ink from a set called Mega Mixed Messages.
Ok that is all for this week. More next week. :)

Week 3 Layout and Cards

Ok so for my layout I scrapped my baby girl. She has changed soo much in the last two years. I thought this page was perfect for her. I cut out the hearts using different tabs on the George cartridge. I stamped some with the clear mount I {heart} harts stamp set from Stampin Up. The border punch used was Pinking Hearts Border Punch from Stampin Up as well. I cut out the title with the Hannah Montana cartridge. The little girl is cutout in blackout with the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and the face is once again stamped with Peachy Keen face stamps. Her dress is just white cardstock and I stamped the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set as well. That is about it.

This card I embossed the back rectangle piece with a cuttlebug folder and then ran my ink pad over the top of the embossed part. I cut a giraffe from Animal Kingdom as well and used he peachy keen animal face stamps. This card was for a good friend who just had a baby but I thought twice about sending it. I don't really care for the look of the card.

Week 2 Layout and cards

Ok, so week two was not high on the creativity side what so ever, :( but the goal was completed so I will post it.
This layout was just a simple layout where I cut hearts out from the George cartridge and used heart brads that I found in my stash. The title was stamped from my alphabet stamps.

The first card is for a friend who is having a baby girl soon. The elephant was cut from the Animal Kingdom cartridge and her face was stamped from peachykeen face stamps. I used my chalks to highlight her eyes and cheeks. The bow I got at Walmart in their scrabook section. And the stamp small wonder is from new stamps from Stampin Up clear mount stamps Whimsical Words.

My Parents 25th Wedding Anniversary

My Parents have been happily married for 25 years. Their anniversary is new years eve and somehow I still managed to forget on the day. Oops. So I ran upstairs and threw together a quick and simple card. I used a Stampin Up border punch.

Soccer Snack Day

On the day I had snacks for my son's soccer team I ended up staying up late the night before to finish these little bags. I used my Paper Dolls Cartridge for my Cricut and cut these cute soccer guys. I used the face stamps from peachy keen stamps as well. Which I love to use with my paper doll cartridges and animal kingdom cartridge. I stamped their name and numbers with some letter stamps I had in my stash. I filled the bags with snacks and some random soccer toys from target that I found for cheap in the stocking stuffer section. The kids and parents loved them.

Here is a close up of my son's bag

My Christmas Card

Okay I know this is way late but oh well. These are the christmas cards that I was planning to make but with no time and around 20 cards to make for family, I only ended up making one. I gave it to my in-laws. Then I made easier and less time consuming christmas cards for the rest of my family. Hopefully next year will be better in the time situation.
For the christmas card I used Lily and Billy Winter Stamps from I just love their cute stamps. For the patterned paper it was Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. I added the super fine glitter from Stampin Up on the ear muffs, scraf and coat of the little girl as well. Hope you like.

Soccer Board Books

For my son's soccer team, I got some friends together to help me make scrapbook albums for all the kids. Thankfully their was only 5 kids total. I bought kids books in the dollar section at Target used soccer stamps and embellishments. Here is my son's book.
