Bee Card

I had these cute little bees and decided to put them on these cute little cards.  I think it looks cute.  Inside I can put Will you bee mine, or Happbee birthday, Happbee St. Patricks Day or Just beecause.  I love versatile cards that I can grab when I need one in a hurry.  Fun fun. texture

Valentine's Drink and Fire Hydrant Card

My daughter came home and wanted to decorate a boy's truck for Valentine's Day.  She's going to put hearts all over his truck and I suggested she give him a pop too.  Since sitting a plain pop inside a truck isn't all that cute, I decided to spice it up a bit.  I liked it so much, I added them to my families gifts, made one for my son's teacher (and can I say cute little gift's for a male teacher is HARD! LOL) and then made another one for my BIL who got divorced a couple of years ago so he's alone this Valentine's Day.  Since we can't have alone on Valentine's Day, he gets one with this little hydrant card I made the other day.  Cute, simple, inexpensive and says, "We are thinking of you." one for the boys  Valentine's Day

Turtley Fun Layout

Ok....I'm trying to use my leftovers again.... my theme for the year so far!  LOL.  These little turtles I believe were an  SVGCuts freebie file and I cut them over a year ago.  I used a few of them, but as you know when I cut, I try to cut as many as fit on my scrap paper.  So I often have left over cuts.  These little guys have been handing out for a while so I decided to use them on this layout.  When the cuts are made, it also makes the page come together faster!  Anyway, it's turtley awesome to get them used! shiny - I used glossy accents on the title (and if you look close, I had an explosion and it got all over the pictures on the right....sigh...So I have more glossy accents than I originally intended! LOL)

Wedding Presents Card

I've wanted to create one of these popup presents/cake cards for a while but never had an occasion.   Well my niece got married and so I decided to give it a try!  I love how it turned out.  It was really thick though so I was glad that I wasn't mailing it!  LOL.  I hope she enjoys it.  I can't remember who shared the bride and groom file so if it's yours, please let me know and I'll give you credit.  It cut really nice even fairly small.  A cute front to this card anyway. At HIMCR they are doing a challenge this week and the winner gets DCWV paper which I happen to love, which by the way, this card is made from so I am going to enter it into their challenge.  One can never have too much wonderful paper and DCWV cuts so nicely.  Anyway, here's my entry and I happen to find a couple more challenges to complete with it.  Love that.   I may have to make something else too.   We'll see if I have enough time.  The challenge was to use at least 3 different kinds of paper.  The inside of this card has 4 alone plus the outside has 2 more patterned sheets so a total of 6.  Lovin' it!  The other challenges have their requirements listed next to their challenge so you can see how I incorporated theirs into my design too.  It feels good to be back crafting again.  I've missed it.  :-)  It makes me smile to create fun things and hopefully those that receive them smile too. designer paper times 3 embellish me - 1st time using washi tape on the presents - such fun! sketch challenge bling it - glitter and washi tape spring colors

I Love You With All My Heart Card

Each year I make my husband a Valentine's Day Card.  It is usually a little "spicier" than this but I couldn't think of a new original idea this year.  So, I dug through my files and made this one.  I don't remember who shared the original template, but this is my version of it.  Even it it isn't "spicy" it does say I love you and that's what Valentines' Day is about..... right?  LOL.

Hugs to You Box

Isn't this fun.  I made these to give to my Mom and my Grandma who are alone on Valentine's Day.  I think they turned out cute.  The little turtles are actually left over cuts from a couple of years ago.  They were too big for my layout and I never got around to using them.  They are a perfect fit for these boxes.  I then used paper left over from other projects and voila.... cute little boxes.  The box is actually a Scrapping Bug Designs file and I think the turtle is a Precious Piecing's file.  So fun.  I like the nontraditional colors of the paper for this Valentine's project too.   I hope they like them.  I bought chocolate covered pomegranates to put in them.  Yum! scraps - turtle and paper kinda interesting using a sketch challenge on a box! something sweet - box for chocolate pomegranates 3d project for Valentine's Day love is in the air non traditional colors

I deerly love you layout

Here is a fun love project!  I decided that these cute little deer needed to be on a deerly love you layout.   Now I just need to add pictures of those that I "dearly" love.  Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. new stash Valentine's show some love hearts love red or pink red or pink red, pink, & heart love
