Birthday Card - No Cricut

Over at Emma's Thursday Challenge, we were challenged to make a card WITHOUT using our Cricut. Since I have lots of little pieces of scrapbooking paper, I decided to make a simple card using cut out squares! The sequins I found in a craft box that I used to store some old craft stuff from high school. Then I used stickles on top of the sequins. It worked out really well. I think I'm going to make more cards like this :)

Terrier Birthday Invitations

Yay! I received my 1st request for invitations! I made 65 of these cute little terrier invitations for a 3 year old who is having a puppy themed birthday. It was a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the way that it turned out. Hopefully this be the start of many more requests to come!

Wedding Card

Stacey asked if I could make a wedding card for her and of course I said yes. Her niece from the east coast is getting married and she wanted a special card made just for her. She wanted something with butterflies because it's very symbolic of her niece's strength to overcome an illness in recent years. I asked what the colors of the wedding were and she said purple. Here is what I came up with. There's a mixture of carts and stamps used here. The car is from Sweethearts and the butterflies are from Everyday Paper Dolls (I think). The "Congratulations" stamp is from Michaels and the "Live your Bliss" stamp is from Paper Trey Ink. Scallop punch is from Martha Stewart. Enjoy!

Twilight Birthday Cards!

This year for my good friends Lauren, Alice, and Willa I decided to make them "Twilight" birthday cards. Last year I made them Hello Kitty cards, so this year I thought I'd make something different.
I chose Edward for Lauren because I think she's team Edward. I used the colors: black (vampires), red (blood), and a shimmery pearl color (for his skin when in the light). Plus, I had already chosen Jacob for Willa, so Lauren was left with Edward. :-)

For Alice it was obvious to use Alice Cullen :) Plus I think that's her favorite character. Alice's favorite colors are red and pink, so I was happy to find a shimmery pink color to use as the main piece. I thought the sentiment matched perfectly.

Lastly, for Willa I chose Jacob. I think she's team Jacob because she mentioned she owned a pair of denim shorts just like the one he wears in the movie. Her favorite color is also blue. So for the card I used blue (denim shorts) and brown (werewolf).

Happy birthday LPK and A&W! Hope to visit you in LA soon!!
