A friend is a photographer in which he gives the recipient their photos in a custom themed CD case.  His assignment was a jungle themed baby shower. Lets see what I came up with.

I gathered my baby boy supplies and got to work.  I used Kraft paper from Papertrey Ink.  Its Great Quality!

I used a copy of a CD and made the front and backs.  This paper is from Michaels and I used my punches to add some detail.

1-IMG_9003Time to put it all together!  I did the inside first since it used all the animal brads.  Use baby stamps and die cuts too!

Baby Baptism

 

 

 

Hi,

Long time no chat!  Well I have some many things to share I just haven’t posted them.  Ack! I have going through some health issues with my eyes and some custom work for my shop I haven’t had time.  Alas I am back! with goodies to share.  I had a request a while back  mostly  baby baptism card for a sweet little one named AVA.

I used this cute monkey baby girl paper, with stickers and dies cuts to make this project all girl.

The little shoe dies are just so cute to me.  I used them as often as I can.  I created all my layer pieces and used the stripping like a chair rail.  I placed the sticker embellishments on top and behind the “rail”.  I love to personalize by adding a name it just makes it all the more special.

Celebrate Your 1st Apartment

 

Greetings!

 

I know it seems like I have been away for ever!  I have been here!  However I have not forgotten you.  I will have tons to show u….promise.  I want to share a custom request I received and I really enjoyed it.  I was asked to make a 1st apartment card.  Perfect….it was a first for me!

1-IMG_6758The recipient was a male so not frilly fru fru. I needed a color scheme  and I had used my  “house cardstock Here on this layout.  What’s a girl to do…….Black and White!  TIP: That’s it, it can be masculine and feminine depending on your accent color(s).  Here I used CHERRY COBBLER for a crimson accent and added some Kelly/lime green.   I hexagon cardstock was my base layer and I added strips of crimson and green polka dots to bring the base of the card together.  I ran some gray cardstock through the BRICK EMBOSSING FOLDER and used WHITE INK SPRAY to distress.  I used an old stamp set, and fussy cut out the house.  My Base layer was complete.  The next to elements made me Giddy!

 

I don’t ofter get to use my WINDOWBOX DIE so I whipped it out.  This time I wanted  a Real Window …with reflection.  I cut out the window frame 3 times and insert a clear piece of cardstock in between.  Perfect.   I made a valance and was tickled pink!

The die came in handy for this layout…..sswweeeeeet!  Its a for sale sign so I used my dyno label and a sticker and I was good to go.

Normally I show this inside of this card however it was a personal photo and the actual apartment building.  Due to the privacy of my customer I will not reveal it…Trust me it was Cute!  See you soon!

Hello,

This card is a trip!  Let  me just get that out of the way! LOL.  I make custom cards as many of you know and recently I was asked to create a Wedding card  for my coworker by June 5th.  Ok no big deal.  I noticed she didn’t give me colors or a theme.  So as it got closer I asked her what was the theme, she said….skulls and crossbones!  I said Oh! silence.  This bride is doing her thing!

I did it!

Since I knew the theme  still wanted the card to be elegant.  I used MFT flourish and upsy daisy  to dd elegance and whimsy.  I tucked in a lace doily added a heart die from papertrey ink, a few banners, all layered atop some framelit dies…and topped it off with a silhouette cut file ofskull and cross bones!  The inside featured a doily,  framelit and the couple from Papertrey ink.  There you have it!

Whoa that is a lot of orange! It went perfect with the theme.

Happy 60th Birthday

Hello,

I had a custom card request about two weeks ago and  wanted to share the card with you.  It was being given to a friend in which somehow they managed to exchanges things with cute mice on them.  Naturally the request for me to add a mouse to the inside of the card, take a look.

A mixture of papers, glitter, thickers, flowers made this card really sparkle
