Bridal Shower!

My good friend Karen is getting married in May! We threw her a bridal shower at Scarlet Tea Room in Pasadena. Her wedding color is yellow which is what inspired me to make this card!

I also made a placecard for everyone. I'm not sure if it was needed since pretty much everyone knew each other, but I thought it was a nice touch. I used my new Martha Stewart blossom punch and stickles for the center.

We sell this great paper daisy bouquest kit at Paper Source and I just had to make one for Karen! I always have a problem with floral tape.....everytime I use it, the stem always gets very sticky when I wrap it around. In order to cover the stickiness I wrapped a ribbon around it :)

JCrew Shopping Bag Turned Gift Bag

I needed a baby boy gift bag for Nate and Celine's present, and I thought why don't I just recycle a shopping bag! (I tend to do that everyone once in a while when I want to make a matching card/bag set). Since the card is green and brown, I thought the JCrew bag would be perfect.

Since I had a lot of space to work with I made 2 different designs. Yay for recycling!

Baby Card!

2 sets of couples had baby boys this year! Congrats to Melissa and Shawn from LA and Nate and Celine from the bay. I made them the same card :) It was just easier for me plus they don't know each other. I went to high school with one and college with the other :) The onesie is from Cricut Sampler and the stamp is from Paper Trey Ink and it's heat embossed.

Sympathy Card

Dodger Thank You!

My friends Alice, Willa, and Lauren from LA sent me a Christmas present which was really sweet of them since I don't see/talk to them much since I moved. I was sooo happy with what they bought Ethier throw, and some cute Hello Kitty stuff! Andre Either is my favorite Dodger (I also have a slight crush on him :) haha)
So I wanted to make a thank you card inspired by my gift :)

Dino Birthday!

My co-worker asked me to make a card for nephew. He LOVES LOVES LOVES dinosaurs.

A couple of wedding cards!

A couple of friends got married last year and here are a couple of cute cards I made for them.

Our friends Nate and Celine got married last July. I really like the yellow and silver color combo!

Again, another card with yellow :)

My high school friends Erik and Valerie got married last September. They have this really cute stuffed penguin named Chilly, so when I saw these images on one of my Cricut cartridges, I just had to use it!

Snowflake Christmas/Anniversary Card

My friend Shiwonda got married last year the weekend of Christmas. Not only that, but her husband's birthday is New Years Eve. She asked me to make card for her husband that incorporated a snowflake as it represented their relationship and how they found their true love.
It's always tough trying to make "manly" cards, but I think it turned out pretty nice. She was pleased and that's all that matters :)

Tis' the Season

Last Christmas I really wanted to make Christmas cards for everyone, but then I soon realized that there were just way too many recipients for me to make an individual card for everyone. So here are a few cards that I was able to finish and at least give out.

Since working at Paper Source I've been obsessed with heat embossing.

This one was inspired by Paper Source :)

Where did I go!?!?

Whoa! What happened!?!? Where did I go? It's been a very very very busy 4-5 months since my last post. We currently have 2 students renting out the bedrooms in our house, I got a part time job at one of my favorite stores Paper Source, and most importantly.....I GOT ENGAGED on New Years Day!! I can't believe it, we're getting married next year!
