Strawberry Shortcake take 2

I think I like it better like this. I don't have any stamps that have cute little sayings so for now it's blank, eventually I will stamp it. But I am finally happy with it :D I used Hello Kitty (cricut cartridge) for the Strawberries and DCWV Sweet Stack for the background paper, the pink strip of paper is from my scraps.

Strawberry Shortcake

As a crafter I find that 99 percent of what I make I don't like. I almost didn't post this card, i mean it has some strong points the Berry's are cute, the berry paper is cute... but then I had to try to go the extra crafty mile and now I don't like it. But everyone else does that has seen it so I figured i'd post it. My blogs is my journey from start to someone (hopefully) so I guess I should show you all my bumps along the way :D

Thursday, July 8, 2010


Last night at like 10. My youngest son asked if I'd make him a card because he picked out something he wanted me to use, it was the Crab from create a critter he picked out the paper and this is what I came up with, he was happy with it. The paper was from Joanns and the shells were some stickers I had laying around.

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


I got some awesome things at biglots the other day for a dollar, the letters I used and the Family phrase, are from making memories, the ribbon came from a scrap pile at a local craft store, and so did the paper. The circles are 3 and 3.5 inches and it's a standard size cards underneath.

Take Flight.

So here is a fun fact about me : I have never in my life flown anywhere. I'm actually scared to death to fly. My husband on the other hand, knows how to fly Planes... Anyway I had this air plane paper and challenged myself to use it. My husband does not like this card, he says it does not look right, and buttons have nothing to do with flying, what does he know really?? I'm the artist :D haha. I love how it turned out. What do you think???

Happy Birthday.

My brother in law's mom Trish, was up for the 4th and today happened to be her birthday, so I whipped up this card for her. My son insisted he deliver it so he could tell her I made it, he told me she said I was very talented. I Used Create a critter and scraps from my ever mounding scrap pile. I'm out of adhesive and had to use a Martha Stewart glue stick, so I hope it stays together :D

Treat Bags

My oldest son will be 11 on July 21st, he wants an Army themed birthday this year, I recently bought the Stand and Salute cartridge, and thought I could make him stuff. I saw this idea for treat bags on CandadianNickel Scrapn, I found the clear bags at Biglots for 1.00 , and then I knew I had to make them. I used black and green card stock from Joanns and a Silver pen from the pharmacy where I live. I will post pictures of them filled when I get that far. Now I have to make his invitations.....
