Three recycled cards :D

I am almost at the point of packing up all my craft stuff, so I am trying finish up all my crafty projects!!  It seems like I keep thinking up things that I should create, so my list is getting longer and longer!!!  We have a lot of summer birthdays in our family so I am pre-making all of the birthday cards for them.  I have even been getting some requests for what people would like!!!  LOL
My mind has been racing lately trying to organize everything and get ready for our move so for the last couple of cards that I created I have just recycled some ideas of older cards that I have already created. This just helps the creating processes along. There is very little to decide on so all I have to do is  create!!! Lol

The first card is very simple, it is an A2  sized card and the sentiment has been stamped from a Recollections stamp from their Fun Borders stamp set. I just used a water pen and some distress ink to paint in the bumblebee.
The flowers are from Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and I inked around the edges to give them some depth. To finish it off I put a flat backed pearl in the centers of the flowers.

The second card is a pretty card for a good friends wedding. I used the layout of my mom’s get well soon card. I just loved how that card turned so I thought that it would be perfect for the happy couple!!
This card is a 4x4 square card.  The circle scallop is cut from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, and the champagne glasses are from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. The flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is from an  Impression Obsession stamp set.

 Finally the third card is a birthday card for my niece who is turning 8! She has been very excited about her birthday this year and has been counting down the days for about a month. Her birthday is not until the end of July so she still has a while still to go!  I created this card for my cousin’s daughter back in March and I shared it on my YouTube channel. I just loved how it turned out so I thought that I would make it again.
The cute little cupcake is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. I used the Happy Birthday Cuttebug embossing to create the background.  The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper’s Birthday Crazy stamp set. A little twine a button, some glitter on the flames and the cheecks of the cupcake helped finish off this card!!!

I decided to recycle these card ideas because the recipients of my cards did not see the cards the last time around. So unless they see their version of them here or on my YouTube channel it will be a surprise for them!! J

For all the Canadians have a Happy Canada Day
for the Americans have a Happy Fourth of July!!!

Thank You Cards and Treat Bags

Things have been a little crazy around my house lately!!! We are packing up and getting ready to move, which means a lot of organizing and donating!!! :)
This week is the last week of school for my boy’s, so I wanted to create something fun for them to take in to their teachers :)
I made a video for my YouTube channel so I thought that I would also share that here with you too…

Here are some pictures of them:

A Happy Birthday Card and Treat

Over the weekend a good friend celebrated her birthday. We went over on Saturday night to have some cake and spend some time with her and this is what I made for her :)

The card is from the Something to Celebrate Cricut cartridge, and is cut using the card feature. This card came together very easily and quickly too…lol.  I ran the cake layer through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then added yellow glitter glue to the flames on the candle for some extra sparkle :) The sentiment inside the card is from the Birthday Crazy stamp set from My Pink Samper.
For her little treat I bought some pink jellybeans. I then wanted to continue the pink theme while making the box for them.  I used the Bags Tags Boxes and More 2 cartridge and cut out a little milk carton.  I used the same pink paper from the card for the edges of the box and embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to match the card.
The tag was cut  from the Winter Woodlands Cricut cartridge, and the happy birthday sentiment is from an Impression Obsession stamp set and the monogram is from a Martha Stewart stamp set.  

She and her daughters loved the card and really enjoyed all the jellybeans…lol We all had a wonderful evening  and I’m really happy she like everything J

A Get Well Card for my Mom

It has been a while since my last post, we have been very busy and time has just gotten away from me!!
My husband has been promoted within his company which is just wonderful, but that means a move to a new city for us! I am so proud of him and I am beginning to realize all the work that goes into relocating to a new city!
Besides all the moving details that we have going on, my mother has just had knee replacement surgery. I have been trying to go and see her and just spend some time with her while she has been under the weather and recovering. She is now back at home and she is recovering very well :)
I made her a card for while she was in the hospital, my mother always loves “pretty” things so I tried to make her a pretty card … lol!

This card is 41/4 square card and all the paper is from recollections. The scallop circle is cut from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, and the flowers are from a Martha Stewart flower punch.
The flower in the center of the card is a stamp from the Papertrey Ink stamp set Spiral Bouquet. The sentiment is stamped from a Impression Obsession stamp set.

I am feeling very relieved and thankful that my mother sugary went so well :) She is having the other knee replaced over the next couple months so when both are done and she is ok I will feel very happy.

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend
Thanks for stopping by,
