Birthday Card

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! We have been having beautiful weather!!! It stormed last night but today is gorgeous!

Here is a birthday card I did for a friend of mine.

I used a piece of DSP from Patterns Pack II which is a Level 1 hostess gift.
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
Stamp: Its Your Birthday
Ink: Regal Rose
Accessories: Sweetest Stems and Simple Flower Embosslit Dies, Texture Plates-Backgrounds 1 and clear Rhinestone brad.
Technique: Diaper Fold

This card was very easy to make, I showed it to my club girls and they begged me to make it at our next club!

My Baby is 4!

My baby recently turned 4! ACKK! I used my Cricut to make her invitations and I wanted to make her cake match so I figured out a way to use my Cricut on her cake!!!

OK, so I didn't actually use my Cricut ON her cake, I just made the paper doll and put it on her cake! I bought this great paper at my LSS, you can't really see it in the picture, but it is glittery and so adorable!

I made the party favors using the same paper and my the Matchbox Die from Stampin' Up!'s current Occasions Mini Catalog.

Now that her birthday is over I have the paper doll to use in her scrapbook! How smart am I?? (I am sure no one ever thought to do this before! LOL)

This is a DVD notebook Tin I made for a friend. These are very easy to make, but I don't really want everyone to know that! :)

This is the outside. I used Raspberry Tart DSP, I love this paper! (And now is a great time to buy it because you can buy 3 packs and get one free!) I cheated and used my Cricut for the Notes, but everything else is SUO.

Cardstock: Raspberry Tart DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, Kiwi Kiss Corduroy button, Simple Flower and Sweetest Stem embosslits dies and Backgrounds 1 texturz plates for the Big Shot.

Here is the inside:

Same supplies used here, except Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon and the eyelet border punch.

Chicago Layout

I'm looking back to try to determine what I haven't posted and I haven't posted many projects at all over the past few months!! The good news is life is good, just busy :) I wanted to share a layout with you since I do not normally get the opportunity to! This is a layout I created for a Scrapbook Challenge I volunteered to handle a couple months ago at a great new site I belong to called Stampin Addicts! I love these colors together! Last year DH and I took a weekend trip to Chicago for our anniversary, just the two of us and it was awesome! This is one of the layouts I created from that trip:

Stamps: Outline Alphabet
Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Corduroy buttons, linen thread, eyelet border punch.

This is a very simple layout. I usually use more pictures on a page, but for this one I just wanted to keep it simple!
