Grade A+

This is a super quick project I made in less than 15 minutes.  Its a regular 6x9 manilla envelope that I covered with dp from DCWV grade school stack. The purpose of this is to hold my son's report cards.  The apple and letter A were both cut from A Child's Year cartridge at 3 inches I believe. 

Today's post is short and sweet and my last one for 2010.  See you all in the New Year and look for some Blog Candy to celebrate my one year blogaversary (is that even a

Merry Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I wish all of you the happiest of holidays and may you have a wonderful New Year too.  Today's post I thought was appropriate for Christmas day since its a pic of my son on Santa's lap.  This is a 12x12 layout and I'm so pleased with the way it turned out.  I used my new Jolly Holidays cartridge for the cricut.  The dp is last years DCWV Christmas Glitter stack.  Here's the cuts... the tree at 5 1/2 in, the elf at 3 1/2 in,  the presents at 3 in, the squirrel at 2 in, and the deer at 3 inches.  Santa letters were cut using the storybook cartridge at 3 inches.

Happy Birthday Grandma

This card was made for my mother-in-law, for her birthday from her grandson.  The inspiration for this card came from Amy's blog and can be found HERE  I love her blog.  Her creations are wonderful.

This card is great to use up some scraps.  The base is Kraft, layered with a scrap of dp from DCWV from the posies stack.  The white panel is semi layered on another scrap of kraft paper.  The clouds were stamped on some su bash blue using the cloud stamp from Verve's up and away set.  I free handed the mountains and then ran it through the cuttlebug with the swirls folder.  The grass was cut at 1 inch on the cricut using the Paper Dolls Dress up Cart.  I stamped Billy (from cat's pajamas) and colored him with markers and as you can see had some issues with this face that turned out really peach.  I cut him out and  pop dotted him on the card.  I see I missed putting the button on and will go back and do that to the edge of the ribbon.

Thanks for looking today, wow only a few more days till Christmas. I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be.  Hope you all are ready and enjoying this holiday season.

Cheers To You

This card reminds me of the Frank Sinatra era and that is probably really dating me but I remember my dad watching his movies and Dean Martin movies.  It just makes me think Rat Pack 

I made the card for New Years but really you could use it for Congratulations or Birthday.  I used the Mojo 167 sketch for my inspiration.  The dp is DCWV La Creme stack.  The martini was a dollar stamp I picked up years ago and is one of my favorite stamps.  The Cheers To You sentiment is from SU Lots of Thoughts set.  I ran the white layer through the cuttlebug using a sizzix folder and layered it with some black using the scallop eyelet punch from SU.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Holidays

From The Heart

I made this card as part of a note card set for a gift this holiday season.  The colors are some of my favorite and I hope the recipient likes it too. 

Here's how its done.  The base is SU river glad they brought back this color, the beautiful dp is from DCWV Linen Stack (which I think is my all time favorite stack) I used some soft sky for the bottom half of the card and add the scalloped punch detail to the bottom.  The image is a combo of 4 stamps from the Watercolor Trio set by Su.  I stamped the longer branch in river rock and then used a q-tip to remove the ink from the flowers and colored them with a baja breeze marker.  The smaller flower image i colored with SU markers river rock and baja breeze.  I also colored the butterfly stamp with the baja breeze marker...looks like I'll have to pick up the baja breeze stamp pad.  The sentiment was stamped in SU crumb cake to make the kraft scalloped layer on the card. 

Hope you enjoyed today's card.  Happy Holidays

CAS Teacher Note

I'm giving you a little break from Christmas cards to show you some quick clean and simple teacher notes I did to add to the teacher gift this year.   Really quick and simple to do... real red card base, add your scalloped layer to the bottom.  The apple stamp was a dollar stamp from Joann's a couple years ago and the sentiment below is by TPC Studios Greetings (clear stamp set).  I mounted the image with some celery cardstock and used the scraps to punch out a photo corner. 

Just like the card today's post is quick one.  Thanks for stopping by.

Let It Snow

Happy Holidays!  Are you in the swing of the holiday season?  We're decorated and I've started my wrapping.  I love being finished with things early so I can sit and enjoy the rest of the time without all the stress of running around last minute.

Here's another winter/Christmas card.  I have yet to add a sentiment to it and not sure if I'm going to but I'll tell you how I made it.  The base is GP white and is layered with some DCWV patterned paper mounted on kraft cs.  I love this littls snowman from winter woodlands cricut cart  and I cut him out at 4 inches and added some diamond stickles around the edge.  I mounted him on the marquee shape from the Storybook cart that was cut out at 4 1/2 and added the shadow feature too.  I ran the white layer through the cuttlebug with the snowflake folder.  I also added another cuttlebug layer to the bottom of the card to simulate a snow drift using the d'vine swirls folder and the scallop border from SU. 

Thanks for looking,...Happy Holidays
