Imagine Friends Card

Here is the birthday card that went with the pail from yesterday. This is the first card I made with my Cricut Imagine machine. We changed the colors of the girls hair to look like my daughter & her friend. You will see we even put their names on them, added some glitter, pearls, etc. The card base is a Spellbinders Grand die folded in half. Both of these were projects my 11 year old DD & I worked on together....priceless! The blue colored cardstock was embossed. I believe we used the new SU In Color Pool Party.

Crayon Wreath with Cricut & Stampin' Up!

I made crayon wreaths for my kids' teachers in May. I used Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" ribbon as the holder. These are made using embroidery hoops one larger one & a smaller one inside. I spray painted the hoops with some chocolate spray paint we had on hand. The next step is to attach the crayons with hot glue (lay them out all around the hoop before you attach them). Then I attached the Cricut die cuts with dimensionals. I used several Cricut Carts, especially Locker Talk. Lots of pictures so you can see the added details to the die cuts like glitter glue and liquid pearls, embossing, etc. One of their teacher really likes owls so I substituted the starts for the SU owl punch on hers. Both teachers really liked these. The font was Hello Kitty.

Any interest in Stampin' Up! Classes?

Starting in late August or early September I am considering offering some classes. These would be mostly Stampin' Up! classes in card making, scrapbooking, etc. Classes may include other non-SU items as well. I am still in the planning stages and would appreciate it if you may be interested to email me and/or post here and let me know what types of classes you may be interested in - cards, scrapbooking, techniques, 3D, etc. If there is enough interest I may also offer them online and you would just pay the shipping to you. I could perhaps do video tutorials and/or printed directions with pictures if you are not local.

All classes I do hold will be offered at a 50% discount if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in my downline.

I also would like to start holding workshops, so if you are intersted in holding a workshop through me let me know. You may also get class discounts if you hostess a workshop. Workshops can be local or a book party if you are not local.

Birds On a Fence

I am so sorry I do not remember all of the details from some of these as it has been awhle since I made them. If you have any questions about anything I may leave out let me know & I will try to figure it out.

Stampin' Up! bird punch, MS border punch, Stampin' Up! Early Espresso cardstock and Designer paper. Viva Decor pen for the sun. Tweeedt stamp from My Pink Stamper, prima flowes and skittles for the bling on the fence. Stampin' Up! white gel pen accents on the birds.

Mother's Day 2011

I made these for Mother's Day this year. They are flower pot cards. I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for them. You can find that here:

I used the Stampin' Up! scallop dot border punch for the edge of the flower pot. All cardstock is Stampin' Up!. I used my Cricut for the flowers and leaves (sorry, it has been so long i can't remember which cartridge). The colors of the flowers are Night of Navy, So Safron, & Coral. The flower pot itself is a retired color. I inked the edges of the pot in soft suede.

hmmm...ok.. I have more pictures & close-up of this, but for some reason when I upload the files from photobucket they get all stretched out like... strange. I will try to figure it out & add them.
