New Years card...2011

New Years. Here's what I came up with. All the cuts are from Give a Hoot. The welcome and the numbers are stickers. (is that cheating?) The bow and string are just embroidery floss. I think it turned out okay. While I was gluing somethings down I found my Zig glue pen had been used by someone for something and it was not in good shape so I got upset. I should have put it down and come back to it. Well you know what the say happens.
Warm winter hugs to you all, Debi

Card, tag and bow I made for my sister.

Well, I made each of my sisters and my brother a shadow box  with an old picture of our mother in it. Then I made each one a special card and matching tag and a matching bow to go on the wrapped gift. Your can't see it very well here but I even made my own wrapping paper. I will post the other cards and tags later.  I'v been busy but I like the way this turned out.  Hope you all like it to.  Hugs, Debi

Momo's Tues. Challenge

Well this is just a brown paper bag I coverd with paper. The paper is from Cloud nine, Holiday collection. I cut the trees from Doodle Charms and the snow flakes are from a cuddle bug die. The ribbion is just the good ol' curly ribbion. I cut the snowy hill free hand and used some glitter glue along the edge but you cant see it very well in the picture. Hope you like it. I think I put to much time and and work in it for a bag that will get trashed after opened.  Hugs, Debi

I cut the tags from the George and Basic Shape.  I used DCWV holiday stack and used a cuddle bug die to cut the snow flakes. Tied some bows and added some ties.  Simple and sweet. Nothing like waiting for the last minuit.  Hugs, Debi

Twins birthday cards

I cut this out of FMK. I really like this cart. Im not sure if this is an ice crean or an iced coffee.  I used the sentiment from the Scrappy Moms stamp set and thought it fit the occasion whether it was ice cream or coffee. This was a birthday card for my other twin niece.  She wrote back and said she loved it.  I thought both cards turned out real cute. Once twins reach a certin age you can't make them the same things anymore.  Hope you enjoy too.  Hugs xxx Debi

Birthday card

Hey I won a Scrappy Moms stamp set on Momo's birthday bash and this is one of the stamps. I cut this gift out of SYI and I cut out a little tag to hang on it. There is some birthday celebration paper in the background and I added some ribbon and a knot. It was for one of my twin niece's birthday...they are 22 now.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

Hey there all you Oregon Duck fans. Yoo Hoo.  My brother inlaw is a huge duck fan.  I found this wooden frame at Micheals for a $1.00.  Then I found this Oregon paper @ 30% off.  (it's just one peice) I used the Jasmine cart. to cut out the letters and the EPD for the football and the #1 hand.  I see a few things I wish I would have done different but I used Modge Podge on it and it was way to late to change anything after I was done with it. I sent it to him for his birthday with a football card.  I really had alot of fun creating and making this.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs xxx Debi

two challenges

I cut this turkey out of SYI. I think there are so many sweet cuts for all seasons in that cart. I Put it on a circle card with some sticker leaves and printed the sentiment on my pc. The inside simply says Happy Thanksgiving. Oh, and I used a google eye to make him even cuter.  I thought he turned out pretty cute.  I sent this card to my fav cousin in MN. Hi Bonnie.

Nov 9, 2010

This is the Anniversary card with the embossing on the inside. I really like the paper. I don't know the origin of it but the plain paper is from Micheal's recollections. I cut the glasses from SYI.  Hope you like it. I'm shopping for better camera.

Nov 6, 2010

Momo's Tues. Challenge

The Happy Anniversary is embossed, really, I just have the worst camera ever. I'm not real good at embossing anyway. I think it's messy and next time I will do it away from my craft area. I think I will stick to my BTW, this is the inside of the card.  Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.  Hugs xxx Debi

Momo's Halloween post...

I made 15 trick or treat bags. We live kind of out in the country so we don't get many kids. This paper is from Cloud Nine and it is a huge stack. It has Fall, Hallween and Christmas paper. It's very thin and it doesn't cut well in the cricut but it makes nice background paper ect.  I made some cards but forgot to photo graph them before i sent them out.  Oh well everyone's seen cards before.  If i have to see another Halloween card i think i'll screem.  Hope you enjoy this Halloween entry.  Why not join my blog and leave a comment...Hugs xxx Debi

8x8 Pocket Wall Hanger

I got this idea from Dizzyrus on YT.  She was sweet enough to do a video on how to put it together.  I'm using it in my craft room to put some things in I'v made and not ready to store.  The next one I do will be 12x12.  I will make one with a christmas theme and use it for cards.

Fall Card

  1. I got the idea for this card from Cardztv09.  I like Mary and her projectd alot.  The cuts are from the SYI cart. The paper is just recolections and the background paper is from Cloud 9, seasons.  The inside says "Hope ya got all ya nuts for Fall".  I chalked the acorns and the sqirl. Put a ribbon at the botton with a little Happy Fall.  I thought it turned out pretty cute.  Again...crappy photo.

Made by Momo challange card

Ah, finely a new post.  This will be a good one for Momo's challenge.  I made a Fall card for my sister.  I used SYI cart.  I cut the pumpkin out of orange and used the shadow feature in black.  The background paper is from Cloud 9, Seasonal.  The inside says "Have a funky Fall"  I like the way it turned out.  My photos yuck.  Time for a better camera!

Relax Card...not a real good pic.

I cut this bathtub out of the Child's Year cart. with the blackout and the reg. cut. I used a new cuttelbug border on the bottom.  I used stickles the bubbles and put on 3 small brads.  The back ground paper is from Making Memories "English Garden".  It's such a pretty stack.  I did some doodling and put a nice message inside for my sister who had some surgery that I found out about thur the family grapevine.  Go figure.  Hope you like it.  I wish the picture was better but It was taken before I got some tips from Momo.

Love U Rain or Shine card

Here is a card I made for my son.  He is 28 and I love him dearly.  But...that's all I can say.  I wish he would call me. 
This is a reg. 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 side fold card.  I cut the sun and the cloud out of the Everyday Paper Doll cart. The background paper is Tim Holt's and the cuts are out of the Rock Star pack by D&C.  Sorry the pic. is a little blurry but it's clearer and it doesn't have the flash glare like some of the others.  Momo is a good teacher and she posted some picture taking tips on her blog.
Made by her out she is very good. 
I hope he likes it and maybe he will call me.  We'll see.  Let me know what you think of it too.  Thanks for being here.  (smile)

Momo's blog challange#8

A girly card.  Stylin'...I cut the purse and the word  from the Paisley cart.   I embossed the background and put on a ribbon knot.  On the inside it says "after 50".

Jul 25, 2010

Just keep swimmin...I sent this card to my son and his girl friend. It says "Just Keep Swimmin and on the inside...thru those rivers of life."  I cut the turtle out of the Stretch your imagination cart. and the waves are cut from the Wild card cart. I just cut the waves off the card top and used them here.  I also chalked the turtle and the waves and did some doodling.  Oh yea...the bubbles have some stickles on them.

This is a Tea Bag holder.  It holds 2 tea bags. I cut out a teapot and a cup from my cricut.  They are both from 'A Child's Year' and they are both icons .  I used a sweet little tea strainer (heart shaped) to hold the holder closed.  You could use a ribbon to close it but i thought it was a good way to use this cute tea strainer.  If you would like the measurements and instr. for this great item...check out dawn5377 on youtube. (it's an older post of hers)  I wish this was a little clearer picture.  It's cuter in real life.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Anniversary...I made this card for my daughter and her husband. They have been married 4 years.  I used the Paisley cart to cut out the hearts and the xo's. I've had the paper for awhile and don't know the name of it but it has Dream and other romantic words on it.  I cut out a large heart and embossed it for the inside and stamped "Happy Anniversary on it. I printed out the words, Two hearts, One love, on my computer and cut them out to pop up on the front. I popped up the two hearts so they hold the card closed. I used some gitter glue on the xo's and some heart bling in the upper corner.. I think this card is a gateway fold...?  Hope you like it.
I cut the bride and groom out of "Stretch your Imagination. I embossed the back ground with the swiss dot folder, you can't see it in this picture. I also put a ribbon at the top. I put a very subtle amount of glitter glue around the dress and the top hat.
This is the inside of the wedding card.  It is velum over black card stock with some puched corners and some cuttlebug cutouts. The lettering are cut out of the cricut.
This is a tri-fold card with 1/8" scores at the folds. There are receipe cards on the inside with these cute mini wooden spoons taped to the outside.  This paper is by Hiedi Grace. The whole pack is just the cutest paper ever. I punched the edge and used a small piece of velcro to keep it closed.  Hope you like it.

This is a better picture of the bouqet on the wedding card.  I wish i had a better camera.  I just need to learn how to use it probley.

Momo's blog challange#7

This is a wedding easel card. If you marry a person then you must really love them. This is what loves means to me.  But i really made this for a wedding that my daughter is going to. I hope she likes it.  I made the bouquet and cut the toast glasses out of the Stretch your Imagination cart.

This is an altered composition book i did for my daughter.
This is the inside of the cards. They are basically all the same.
This is one of the cards I made in the set of cards.  They are all shoes but different styles and colors. I cut the shoes from the Paisley cart. At 2 1/2".  I did some ribbon and doodling. There is a pic of the inside on here too.
Another card in the set.
Another card from the set. I wish i could do them all on one post but I don't now how. I'm still very computer challenged.
One of the cards from a set. I wish i had a better picture but i already tried and this is the best so far.
Boxed cards and post it note holder.  I got both these patterns from Made by Momo. "Thanks Momo". I used the Paisley cart for all these.  Look familiar?
I made this for my niece.
This is a composition book i covered. I made this for my sister. I also made one for my niece. I made one for myself. I hardly ever keep these for myself but i needed one.
I just had to post these on here. I have the most amazing son-inlaw. He made these chairs and he is so good to my daughter. I do have bragging rites huh?

Jun 15, 2010

Oh my goodness, where does the time go? I made a set of cards and a box to put them in. I took pictures of them but I'm not happy with the pictures. So, I'm going to try again at a different angle and I will post them if they turn out better. I made some altered composition books. They are so fun to do. I made one for my son so he could put his music lyrics in it and i forgot to take a photo of it. It turned out great. I copied some guitars from a magazine and made stickers from them and put his name in bone letters and used sticker letters to spell out "you rock". I also made one for my niece with a day spa theme and one for my sister with sun flowers. Oh yea I made one for myself too. I will be putting pictures on here in a day or so.

May 26, 2010

Today is Wed. I've made a few things but i have to load them on my puter before i can put them on here. I will do that soon. 

May 13, 2010

This is the "Thank You" card i made for the flowers. The inside says "Felling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not giving it". So i used the DC flower pack, a prima flower and a dollar stamp. Then i used my scallop edger with two different colors of pink paper and some gross-grain ribbon with some cute white edging and glued some old buttons on the ribbon.  I generated the inside saying with my computer on pink paper. And that's it. I hope she like it.
Flowers for mothers day!  My dear, sweet daughter sent me flower for mother day. They are so pretty I have to share.

May 7, 2010

My gosh I havn't made anything for a few days now.  I'v had some not so good news and things going on in my life and I guess I'v just needed a break. But I really feel better when i'm making something.  I will tonite.
I want to start a mini ablbum too. I started a sign with Yolibean and I want to finish that. I saw a really cute card "Just Keep Swimming" and i'd like to make one like it.  So there there are plenty things to get started on...just do it.  I will get started.

I don't know how many of you have kids but even as they grow into adults, they can cause our hearts to wonder why it feels like it does. Our teaching power is gone now, all we can do is watch them grow and learn as we our mistakes.  A mothers love is unconditional. Our love is powerful. Do our children know or realize that? You would think our kids know that we make mistakes too. I don't think our children's love for us is unconditional until they are much, much older. I posted a photo of the ocean because it is soothing for me and i need that now.

May 4, 2010

I want to put this card/tag on here.  I made most of this myself, like the corset I drew and cut out. I laced up ribbon and tied a bow a the top. I made the flower from the "George and Basic Shapes" and wet them and crinkles them and put it together with a brad but i glued a bling in the center. There is some wedding lace at the top and bottom. A feather, some small roses in a petal and "pretty" tag. There is some torn paper, inked to look old and some bling over the top.  So, I thought it turned out really pretty.

I made this card for my brother in-law and entered it in Momo's 2nd challange. (a manly card)

May 1, 2010

I made this Mothers day card using "A Child's Year" cart. I made the flowers myself using a small punch. The letters I tore out of  paper and inked them. I added some lace and photo corners. This is a one sided card with a small envelope on the back for a note or a diary entry. I also made a reg. size envelope so it could be mailed.
This is a card I made for Momo's first challange.
Here is a tag I made for a Spring show. I did about 10 but this is one of my fav's.
