I am married and have two beautiful daughters. I love papercrafting and computer gaming. I am also in the process of a lifestyle change. My husband and I just started the South Beach Diet so we can get healthy for ourselves, each other, and our girls.
I am participating in birthday club so I will be posting a lot of birthday cards. I am extremely happy with how this card turned out. I got the idea for this spinner card from Dawn5377 (youtube screen name). Thank you Dawn!
Here are a few tri-fold shutter cards I have made. They look a lot harder than they are to make. I have put the pictures in order of when I made them. The first one I did is lacking something in my opinion. It is missing the wow factor. The second one I am much happier with. The third one I love. It is a card for my cousins baby shower on Sunday. On the front, the rattles, are shakers that I made. TFL
I am currently in the process of making a recipe book of my grandmothers recipes. My two daughters never got to meet their great grandma because she passed when I was only a teenager. I wanted to do something special and still hand down her recipes. I will be posting pictures throughout the process as I get pages complete. Please stop back often to see the completed pages.
I made two Thank You cards yesterday. They were made with double sided stickers which glitter was applied to one side. I then used Wild Card and cut out Thank You and applied Perfect Medium and painted on Pearl Powder to it.
Several months ago at my sister-in-law's baby shower she received a stack of burp clothes that were just adorable. All they are are cute/decorative flannel cut down and hemmed. They are much cheapier and so much cuter than the burp clothes you find in the stores. So yesterday I sat down and sewed 20 of them for my cousins baby shower at the end of February. I also found a cut of super soft pink fleece that I had purchased 6 years ago and decided to make a baby blankie. It is not a normal size blankie, but I thought it would be a great size for a lovey to get attached to. I have two other gifts that I am working on for her too.
For my daughters valentines day party I wanted to do something a little more special than just throwing some chocolate in a bag. From the Love Struck cartridge I made 26 little mailboxes that are stuffed with a fun size Kit Kat and two Hershey chocolates. There is one mailbox that is different from the others. Can you find it? Leave me a comment and let me know. Sorry no prizes involved, but would love to know who is checking out my projects.
It has actually been done for a while, I have just been delayed in posting it here. Before Christmas I searched and searched for an advent calendar that could become a family tradition and be used for years to come. I found many beautiful ones, but the prices were so expensive. Worth it maybe, but not in my budget. So then my thoughts turned to how could I make one. Again my search began for a do-it-yourself advent project and what I found just looked cheesey. So with my hopes of finding something beautiful and lasting fading I went shopping. For 2009 each one of my girls had their own advent calendar. It was pretty, but not what I wanted and by no means was it something to be used year after year. Each day they opened a flap and received a piece of chocolate. So after Christmas while shopping online I found a 3-D Countdown Calendar by Karen Foster. Here is a before and after shot of our Advent Calendar.
My daughter will be 11 this month so it is time to get her card done. I used the Disney Hannah Montana and the Beyond Birthday Carts. I will be using Wild Card to make the envelope in a bit. The paper I used was a zebra print and also a maroon glitter paper. I hope I can keep it hidden until the end of the month.
I made this card for my BIL's 21st birthday. I would like to thank Maureen Wong for the cut file and Denise Hill for the wonderful how-to video on her blog. If you would like the cut file and want to see the video please visit Denise's blogsite at Paper Pastime http://paperpastime.blogspot.com/2009/11/cake-in-box-video.html
