Happy 40th Birthday to my hubby...

Happy birthday to my awesome husband! Today is his 40th birthday!

For my card I used my Gypsy to weld the numbers together to make a card and then I copied the numbers to make a "front" to the card. For the base of the card I used Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I then cut out the blue numbers using Echo Park - A Boy's Life paper pad I bought at Scrapbook Steals. (Love them!) I cut the background that the card is attached to with pop dots out of Gypsy Wandering. I then stamp "Wish Big..." using my Wow! So Many Candles from My Creative Time.  I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo(one of my fav's) and then used my iRock to put a little manly bling on it.

I am entering this card in the numbers challenge over at Bitten by the Bug.


Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge 16...

I made these for a challenge over at Decorate To Celebrate!  I used my Girl's Make Up Party Cricut Cartridge to cut our the place card and the water bottle holder.

I used My Mind's Eye - Blush cardstock for the place card and then Recollections Chalkstock so that I could write whatever I want on the place card.

For the water bottle I used K&Company Valentine paper for the wrap around the water bottle then I used My Mind's Eye to cut out the cute little crown. I used my iRock and rhinestuds for the top of the crown because who doesn't want some bling?!

Throwback Thursday Challenge Episode 295...

This card was made for the Throwback Thursday Challenge Episode 295 over at My Creative Time. For this challenge you had to make a "Sports" Themed Project. Well I found out that I do not own any type of Sport Cricut Cartridge. I am going to have to get me at least one. Any suggestions?  I used my Gypsy to create this card using Printing Press Cricut Cartridge,  then I inked the edges using my Distress Ink, and then applied the "sports" stickers to the card.

  • Recollections - Dimensional Stickers
  • Distress Ink - Fired Brick

I heart bag

I decided that I would use this svg file that I have had for a few months. I meant to make it for my husband before he came back from his fishing trip and I didn't get around to it so I decided I would buy him some Swedish fish and make this just because I heart him.  :)

This file was a little difficult to work with only because I am used to using files that are a little more step by step with the instructions. After I "played" with it a little bit I figured it out. I think it came out adorable. I made it while he was at work so when he came home from work he found it.

Cookie Sheet made in to fridge oraganization center

I wanted to share one of the cookie sheets I made into a fridge organization board for my sister in law for Christmas. I have made a few of these because I seen them online somewhere and thought I would love to have one myself and this would be a great gift for someone. This is what I came up with.

I found the little metal "Live, Laugh, Love" tag at Michaels and the flower magnet box. I hot glued the metal tag on and I traced the flower magnet box onto the green paper and pushed it inside to give it a little color to match the board.
