Flower Bouquet for HER

Hi there, thank you for stopping by today to check out my project this week!!  Today I used the Flower Pot Shaped Card Set from The Cutting Cafe to create this gift bag holder.  I added a Happy Mother's Day sentiment but you can recreate this project for many different occasions!!

The cutting file also comes with flowers that you can cut and add to this project but here I used some flowers from Kaiser Kraft, Recollections, Micheal's and one I crocheted myself with a Prima flower center....I really wanted to use it here like a proud momma! heehee

Here is a side view.  Inside is a bottle of lotion so you can see the depth of the holder.  You can fill it with many different treats for any occasion or any person!  Thanks again for stopping by today!!

Are you feeling......Lucky!!

Hey crafty friends!!  Happy St. Patrick's day to YOU!!  I wanted to share this cute "Irish" inspired card I created for The Cutting Cafe this week.  The pretty little girl holding the "KISS ME I'M IRISH" balloon comes from the Elisha Jean and friends cutting file available at The Cutting Cafe, check out the website.

Here is a front view of the card; I used an embossing folder for the layered yellow sheet to give some texture; I added a lace dolly and a stardust shaped die cut with patterned paper to brake up the green in the background paper to her dress.  The words in the balloon were created with a stamp and black embossing powder.  I found this cute little Irish themed pen in my stash and added it to the bottom right corner to bring some balance.

I also completed the interior of the card; I just layered some more of those same papers on the front and added a white matte sheet for my sentiment.

Below I used my Wink of Stella pens to shimmer up the clover on her dress and hair bows in green, the "so lucky" clover on the inside of the card in gold and Elisha's green festive socks!!  

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my project/card share!!

Welcome Baby!!

Hey there crafty friends, coming on to share with you a birth announcement I created using a few files from The Cutting Cafe.  This was really quick and easy to create and I love the way it turned out, I honestly just started with the Shaker file and the All-Occassion-Frame Set and came up with this beauty!!

I used some Tim Holtz spiced marmalade stain to give the rattle some color.  I also added some white seam binding twisted into a bow with a little sequins flower center.  You can lay it horizontally or

vertically!! The sentiment comes from the Hero Arts, Special Delivery stamp set.

The rattle opens up to display the sex of the new arrival!!  The back of the postcard is blank with plenty of space to add the name, birthdate, weight, height, etc.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today and taking a look at my post created for The Cutting Cafe.  I hope you were inspired!!

Vintage Mini

Hey there crafty friends!!!  I created my this adorable little mini album using Starbucks coffee sleeves!!  I am in love with how it turned out.  It was created for a swap I am in and my partner likes the vintage theme, so I used the Prima Romance Novel paper pad to create this mini for her.  I really hope she likes it!!
