Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge

This was a fun project to do. The challenge was Celebrating Creativity. It really made me step outside my comfort zone. The font and label are from Storybook. The paper is from Sassafras Lass Indie Girl. Unfortunately, I have no idea what I am going to do with this, bc it doesnt match the colors in my scrap room, even though it is my favorite color, blue. Hmm, maybe I will fram it and put in Bailey's room. Blue is her favorite color too. Thanks for looking.

Happy Halloween by Bailey age 8

This is my daughter Bailey's entry into a couple of kid's challenge sites. There are 2 pictures, but it is only one card. She believes that the front and the back of the card should be decorated!

I love you cherry much

I used the cherry from Hello Kitty and cut it around 3 inches. I put Glossy accents on the cherries and used a stamp from Pink by Design Country Living. Add a little bling and call it done. I made this for my hubby - he is looking for a job right now and I wanted him to know that I was behind him 100%.

I must say, I dont have much purple in my stash, but I new that I had Basic Grey's Wisteria paper and that it had beautiful purples in it. The new technique I tried was the gate fold card.

Card Creations & More by C - purple and something new

Just a Note

The paper for this card is from DCWV Autumn Splendor. I used my new MS leaf border punch that I found at Michael's for $14.99. It also has the corner punch - what a deal! They had a bunch of the punch around the page sets on clearance. The bling is from my stash.

Have a tree-mendous day!

I have been wondering what kind of card to make with this little beaver from Create a Critter. I pored over all my stamps and found this one and thought it would be perfect. The paper is DCWV Autumn Splendor.

Mr & Mrs

I made this card for a wedding I went to this past weekend for my cousin's daughter. It is so hard to believe that a cousin of mine has a child old enough to get married! EEK! I'm getting old! When did that happen?! I used Basic Grey Indian Summer paper and I think the letters are from Plantin. Her wedding was outside at a small plantation house in St. Francisville and her colors were all the beautiful fall colors. So pretty! Good Luck to Ashley and Adam!

7th Grade

Taylor came home with her school pictures this week. I don't normally do one picture layouts, but I thought this would be a perfect time for one. I used the sketch from Creative Scrappers for the #125 celebration. I cut the lock from Locker Talk and the apple and books from Hellow Kitty Greetings. The letters are from Plantin. The awesome paper is from Bo Bunny Learning Curve that I won from Generations Crafting.

Happy Fall Ya'll #2

When I saw the challenge at 365 Cards, I knew I had the perfect paper in my stash for it. I have no idea where it is from, bc I have had it forever. The challenge was to make a card with a diamond and a circle shape - anyway, anyhow. I used the diamond paper on a circle card from the Wild card cartridge. Cute and Simple. Hmm.. just noticing that I meant to ink the edges. I always forget that step. I am also going to enter this into MPS Countdown to Karlee giveaway challenge. Thanks for looking.

For Bailey at Kona Kids Krafters Challenge

I was so excited to stumble across a kids' challenge blog, Kona Kids Krafters. When I am in my craft room, one of the girls usually joins me and makes a card as well. This card has been been a work in progress for Bailey for a week. She kept thinking it needing a little something extra! LOL She didn't understand what R.I.P. meant so she wanted to spell it out for others.

Happy Thanksgiving

I used patterned paper from my stash and kraft paper for the card base. I think the leaf ribbon is from Target dollar spot and a little bling from Michaels. I stamped a 'blessings' sentiment on the inside for a simple and easy Thanksgiving card.
This card is for Cricut Cardz Challenge #45
