Birthday Card

Image
I am so proud of myself so far this yr I am keeping up with family and friends birthday cards. This is a card from the silhouette store #48007 I love the fact that I can open up some of the 12x12 paper stacks I had to have and use it for the insides of cards and for the matching envelope. 
Well another dropped in the mail

Teacher birthday

Image
Today was my grandsons teacher Birthday so off to work I went on her card. I used an old stack from DCWV Hittin' the Books to make her a card and envelope. I used create a critter 2 for the apple and I put it on a wobble along with french script stamp and I embossed it. I used S&P Stamp for Happy Birthday. On the bag I used a sheet of paper from DCWV Sunshine paper stack because I ran out of time this morning I didn't get to add anything to the bag.

I used my ek sucess punch for the boarder (I forgot I even had it...I know sad right) I pulled out my Creative Time with Emma frame and decorative tag that the apple is sitting on I used a fiskars stamp set for the inside sentiment and balloons. All and all I really like how this project came out this morning and KD said he teacher said it was fabulous so he is happy and so is Nana....

Happy Birthday Tiffany

Today is my BFF Birthday and I just love how this card in a box came out. As you can see I am on a purple streak here. I used that same DCWV Birthday Extravagance stack for the layers. I used Stamps of Life set along with the dyes to finish this card. Thanks to my friend Treva for sending me the best Youtube tutorial to complete this card.

Desk to dawn

Image
I am so proud of myself. I got my Close to My heart monthly order and this is the first time I pulled out a kit (Ivy Lane) and worked it. I followed along with Tiara iClassygirl Desk to Dawn and made a simple layout. As you no Felisa - she is simple so I am in love with the Desk to Dawn. This is a rare picture with me and my grandsons. My oldest daughter doesn't live near me so when I go I try to take the other two boys so we can get a family shot.

 remember my I top that was a button I made with it. the swirls are from the Ivy Lane kit as well this is the stamp set that came with the kit and I used the Artiste cart to stamp out on the cardstock that was included with black ink
I still have plenty left for more layouts Be Bless

Another Birthday

Image
Time for another birthday card or two. Today is my friend Shauntay and co worker Denise birthday so I thought I would use MojoMonday sketch and I loved it some much that I used it for both cards. For this card I used the 6x6 We R Memory Crazy for you ( I guess I am still in a purple mood) and I used the left over balloons from yesterday card for the inside I love the fact that I can pull out all of those 12x12 pads that I keep buying and use the for an envelope  for this card I used the My Minds Eye Indie Chic Ginger and I love how the colors look so springy :D
That is all be bless until the next birthday card tomorrow 

Happy Bless Birthday cousin LaChanda

Image
Today is my favorite cousin's birthday and she loves animal print so I made this quick card last night for her. I started with a home made stencil from my Zing and then I used the Viva Ferro Special Effect Past on the base of the card. Her favorite color is purple so I cut some balloons out and embossed a few and pop dotted them up. I pulled out some spellbinders to but the stamp from S&P Company Bold Sentiments III Birthday set for the front and inside of the card. I then pulled out my animal stack of paper to make the envelope  
Happy Birthday Cousin we love you

Happy Birthday sis Roshanta

Hello Crafters, this is a busy month for me with birthdays so be forewarned I still have a few more to go. Today is my classmate - girlfriend -  sister in Christ Roshanta 's birthday. So I had to make a quick card so I could get it in the mail before her birthday hope it makes it on time. I used DCWV Birthday extravaganza pack and I downloaded the free cake tonight from Miss Kates site and put the cake on an action wobble.

I used Stamps of Life stamp for Bring on the Cake and My Creative Time for the speech bubble die cut out. I also used my new spellbinders die from Tuesday Morning for the pink frame.
I used S&P stamps for the inside sentiment....wow I was really in my room using items today.

Happy Bless Birthday sis, love you

Skate night

Image
Hello crafters, why does the weekend go so fast......I finally went in my craft room Sunday night at 8 and I try to be in bed at 9. My mojo came in just for me to get this simple layout done. 

My girlfriend Danita  sent a picture of her new toy the i-top and I had forgot all about having that tool. I tool her and some other friends Treva and Sharon that we should do a challenge to use something that we have. To be honest this is the first time I have used it after it has been sitting for over 2 yrs I know sad. I just love how it came out I took that star pattern paper and made a brad with it.
I used my silhouette to cut the skates and it is a file in the store #19775. I really wasn't thinking size when I cut it but I wasn't going to toss it either so another simple layout complete. I wish they would have had these pvc pipes when I learned to skate :)

Happy Birthday Ronald

Image
Today is one of my favorite (brother - not a real one but love him like a brother) Birthday. I made a step card for him. I used Suburia cartridge for the gentleman basic grey Clippings 6x6 paper pad and my deco punch for the corners. I used my Stamps of life for the stamps and the little party hat for the punch out and put a pop dot under it. I also went in my stash and used those wood frames and I used Tim Holtz Burlap ink and put some clear embossing powder on it and used it as a stopper for the card.
I used my envelope board for this and Martha Stewart punch for the word cheer


I hope he enjoys it. Happy Birthday Brother we love you   As Always be bless

Going home

Image
good morning crafters, today I am on my way to a funeral. It was my Mother's best friend. My Mother has been gone for 28 yrs and she died of Cancer and now her friend has died of Cancer so it is going to be a rough day but I know good and well Mommy and Irene (Andrew, Irene husband) will be singing and shouting in heaven. 
I made this card for one of her daughters Sabrina. I know this is a difficult time and it is something you will never get over but maybe the card will bring a little joy.
I used Ki paper pad from WalMart and the stamp is from CTMHI also made an envelope to go along with the card but I am not sure what paper stack I got that out of 

Irene is on the left and Mommy is on the right

I used DCWV dots strips paper pad and CTMH stamps D1529 celebration birthday and the set that came with the Artiste cart.   I also used the cart to make the envelope easy right and another Feb birthday done.

Valentine treat bags and a card

Image
Hello crafters, today I needed to fix 19 treat bags for my grandson to take to school and a card for his teacher. The party is Wednesday but we could go ahead and take them in today and I knew I had better go ahead and get it out of the way. First I started with my cameo for the print and cut images but for some reason the cut wouldn't work right so I had to fussy cut out all images :(





I used We r Memory Keepers paper Love Struck for the treat bags and card. I used create a critter two cartridge for the cut out image. Another simple project complete
I am also linking this card to a video challenge over at spyrorocks346 YT challenge

As always be blessed

Basketball snack bags

Image
Yesterday my oldest grandson Kendrian (KD) was his turn to bring snacks for the basketball team. I pulled out the silhouette to make snacks for 14 kids. I worked late last night so I had to drop them off at my daughters house and I had to snap a quick picture of the bag. I took the pic in my other grandson Kai's swing so sorry for the bad picture. I used an old stamp for the front and stamped CHAMPS on the front. On the inside of the card I used an old stamp set from StampinUp  The kids really did enjoy there bag. 
This is Kendrian's picture.......He will be ready for the NBA Be Bless
