Cris-Cross Congratulations Card

Congratulations to my friend Kris! She has been hunting for a job and her hard work has finally paid off so I decided to make her this card. I love this pattern paper from Stampin' Up! It's double sided so when I made this all I had to do was cut and flip and it looks awesome! I used pretty in pink cardstock and ribbon and the boho blossom punch for the flowers. I had to add some bling so I used the pearls and the diamond brads. Way to go girly! I knew you'd do it!

Thanks so much!

My sister had her Stampin' Up! Christmas card class tonight and she was suppose to have 10 people!! I can't believe it, that's amazing AND she has another workshop tomorrow night! WOW! Her cards are amazing and so is she, I wish I could've been in Connecticut with her so I could go to her class, well, and see her and the kids too! lol
Well here is a card I made with the two step bird punch from Stampin' Up! Enjoy!
Thank you ladies for placing your Stampin Up! orders last month! These are the thank you notes I included with their orders. I think they turned out amazing! I've been wanting to use the bird punch forever so I did. I did a clear heat emboss on the bird to give it some dimension but it's hard to see in the picture.

I'm just finishing up the kits for my Christmas Card class on Saturday and I have to say I'm getting tired of looking at them so I thought that since I'm in Florida and even though our mornings and evenings are getting a little chilly (low 60's) our afternoons warm up pretty good!! Well, today was one of those days that would've been perfect for an ice cream cone, so here's one to enjoy!!
I used my Cricut with the Sweet Treats cartridge, still one of my favorites, to cut this card out! I added some stickles and inked some of the edges for that added dimension. What a cute card!
Have a 'sweet' day!!

'Tis the Season!

I can't believe that Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is coming and the grocery store even has Christmas goodies out! I guess that's one way to get into the holiday spirit here in Florida! I've never worn flip flops and a tank top for trick or treat until this year!
I've decided since I've made so many different Christmas cards already I'm going to send them out instead of making just a bunch of the same ones!
Here's one I made using the the snow flake embossing folder and I added some frost shimmer paint from Stampin Up! I then used the white organza ribbon, added some sticky strip to the center and pressed some glass glitter on it. Put the ribbon on the white embossed paper and layered onto a card! I think it turned out pretty cool! The stamp is stamped in marina mist ink and punched out with the small tag punch and layered with the large tag punch. I think this stamp is retired though but there are sooo many Christmas tag stamps that would work great!! Have a wonderful week!!

Bros 4 Life layout

Well, my boyfriend has 2 boys and you've seen the youngest ones layouts I've done but he has a gaggle, yes I said gaggle, of pics of his oldest son but I wasn't around when all of them were taken so I'm having the darnedest time getting some of them into a nice scrapbook! Sooooo, here is one of them I did tonight! I used my cricut to cut the scallop DCWV designer paper and I used SU baja breeze ink to ink the edges of the letter that I cut out in white. Hope you enjoy!
