As I said we combined mybrother's birthday celebation with his wifes baby shower. These are the giveaways I made for my sister in-law's baby shower. The give away came with a mini blue velvet bundt cake with cream cheese frosting with this tag I cut from New Arrival Cricut Cartridge and the sentiment was stamped with a Pink by Design stamp set and heat embossed.
One of my goals this year was to craft more,mainly to get more crafting done instead of starting my projects and NOT FINISHING!!! I've been trying to finish my nephew's scrapbook and he's already turning 4 with another one on the way so I really need to finish his scrapbook soon or else I'll be stuck in limbo for too long. Though, I haven't worked on he layouts I'm ranting about I have finished some cards for my shop and for the upcoming birthdays I mentioned.
This cute Valentine Teddy Bear was cut using Create a Critter 2. I used Glossy Accents on the heart to give more texture and the black dots is bling :) I think this woudl be a good card for a guy if you ask me, not too girly and the bling isn't too obvious but again adds texture.
This next card was made using Holly Robinson paper collection, handmade from India. They are very delicate papers but beautiful nonetheless. I found these papers on clearance at Marshall's and I got a purple and pink pack. The base and the dark purple mat are from Recollections. I bought the ribbon from an Etsy shop and I've had it for awhle, glad I was able to find a use for it.
I've been helping a friend with some wedding ideas and she wanted me to do save the date's for her. I found a layout that we both liked and ever since I have ben loving the layout making many cards from the same layout but different papers. I should be using scraps but I have yet to :( The orange paper on top, yellow trim and cream embossed paper is all DCWV all from different stacks/packs. The cream ribbon is just regular satin ribbon from Michaels and the yellow ribbon is from American Crafts. The paper flowers are Prima Flowers an the brad is Recollections.
I love edge punches but I have the hardest time with them. With that being said I'd love to have a Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System. They are holding a giveaway and would be great if I could stop hassling with the old edge punchers and move onto something greater and better. Click on the link if you want to ente to wring a new Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System also!! Good luck and enjoy!
