Hello to everyone!  I made this card awhile back for an anniversary and I just never got a chance to post it.  This was a SU template that I saw (I think!) or I saw it somewhere but anyway I decided to try making a card using it and I really like how it turned out.  You could change the sentiment and stamp a cupcake on the circles to make it a birthday card or many other possibilities.  I stamped the sentiment (which is retired...sorry) on twill tape and attached it with brads.  I cut the circles out on my cricut at 1". 
  • Cardstock:  SU Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
  • SU Ribbon is 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon in Early Espresso
  • Versamark ink
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Best Wishes Bridal Shower Card

Hi all!  My wonderful cousin Jessica is getting married next month and I made this card for her bridal shower.  I haven't made anything for a wedding in awhile so I had a good time making this!  :) The large stamp is OLD!  One of my friends used it to make my bridal shower invites over 10 years ago and then she gave me the stamp and I have always kept it. 

  • SU cardstock in Very Vanilla and Basic Black
  • SU Basic Black Craft Ink and Clear Embossing Powder
  • Best wishes stamp is from the short and sweet set that is in the main SU catty. 
  • Ribbon is SU 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Basic Black
  • Silver paper and flower are Bazzill
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder in Divine Swirls
I plan on crafting this entire weekend if possible (Whoo Hoo!)  Have a wonderful Easter!

    Got my mojo back! Baby Bottle Thank You!

    Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be posting again.  It has been awhile!  Thank you for all the emails and positive comments.  For the first half of my pregnancy I was so tired all of the time so I didn't get much crafting done.  But I finally did this weekend and I am looking forward to doing more and posting more this week as our Spring Break gets closer!
    I have gotten so many wonderful things from friends, family, and my wonderful blogger friends that I wanted to design a thank you note I could have on hand and send out.  This cut is a sizzix die for my big shot.  I am sad to say our local scrapbook store is going out of business but the good news is there is GREAT deals there.  I got this die for 13.00.  I really liked the way they did the bottle on the package so I cased it a bit and added some of my own touches.  I used Very Vanilla for the bottle, So Saffron for the top, and Crumb Cake for the tag.  The ribbon is Pear Pizzaz. 

    Thank you so much for stopping by and  I hope you have a wonderful week!
