My Creations

Happy Sunday!

I ran downstairs this morning to find a card for one of my husband's college buddies who recently got married and was inspired to pick up my camera and document some of my past creations, so I thought I would share a few with you!  I'm running against the clock (read: Caden is sleeping), so I'll have to keep the recipes to a minimum, but if you see something you have a question about, let me know!

I cased this pop-up card formula from a YouTube video, but I can't remember the lady's name.  If you recognize it, please leave me a comment, and I will edit this post!  I do have the measurements needed to make it, if anyone wants them.  The Mr. & Mrs. and the rings are both from the Sweethearts Cricut cart, the shiny cardstock is Bazzill Bling, the punch is Martha Stewart Scallop Dot, and I'm not sure about the stamps or the ribbon.
Here are  a couple more views of this card:

This is one of the thank-you cards I made for my baby shower:
The monkey is from the New Arrival Cricut cart and the scalloped frame is from the Storybook cart.  The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder.  Sadly, I'm still working on sending out thank-you's, and my son is two and a half months old.  Perhaps I should be doing that instead of blogging...... ;)

I made both of these cards using the Paisley cart:
I must say, I was hesitant to buy that cart, but I really love it!

I made this card for my friend Stefanie's wedding, but she got married in Georgia (we live in Missouri), and in all of the hustle and bustle of getting a seven week old ready to fly for the first time, I left it here.  I should probably mail it, now that I'm thinking about it!

The entire card, base and all, was made using the Sweethearts cart, another one I use all of the time!

I cased (aka scraplifted) this layout for my son's baby book from a lo in Creating Keepsakes several months ago.  I know I still have it; if you want more info, just let me know!  I've taken pictures of important things that we use to make this a comfy place for Caden, such as the nursery rocker and his playmat, and I will place them in each of the "balloons".  The print font is from the Alphalicious cart, the cursive font is from Opposites Attract, the circles were cut using Plantin Schoolbook, and the house is from Going Places.  I also used the Scallop Dot and Doily Lace border punches from Martha Stewart.

This last lo is also cased, but this time from a book called Oh, Baby! by Memory Makers. 
The font is also from Opposites Attract, and the circle at the top is from Plantin Schoolbook.  I cut the heart freehand and embossed it using-you guessed it!-the Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder.  A 5x7 of me and my son goes onto the blue mat, and all around the edges I've written a list of my favorite things, like rainy days, the beach, and Garth Brooks, though it's too tiny for you to see very well in this picture.

Thanks for stopping by and sticking it out with this really long post!  I hope you found something that you liked, and I would love it if you posted a comment to let me know what you think!

Until next time,
