More Cards

Hi all. I made a couple new cards that I thought I'd share. Let me know how you like them. ;o)
This Tilda card I made for a challenge using magenta, olive green and the word broken. The inside of the card says "if you won't be mine." Perfect little card for Valentine's Day.

New Layouts Completed

Hi all! I have been working diligently on my puppy's album. I have to say it's really hard to make 8x8 pages when you're used to 12x12. I may not be doing a smaller album again! Here are some more layouts I've completed. :o)

Cards, Including my 1st Bella!

Hi all! I have been busy card making. I made my 1st couple of Bella cards and I love them! I got to play with my COPIC markers too. Woohoo! Here are the sassy Bella's...

I made 2 cards that I entered into Caardvark's Challenge. I hate the blue one, but I really like the pink and brown one. :o)

This is a card made using a paper piecing of a little birdie. I thought it was "tweet". ;o)

That's it for now, ladies. Huggers!

Backed-Up Project Pics

Hello again...two days in a row, people! That's gotta be a record for me. ;o) So, I figured I would add a lot of project pics that I never uploaded when I did them and then maybe I'll stay caught up. I don't think anyone actually stops by, but I'm going to try to stay current anyway.

This is a shaped album with a binding just like a regular I could add plenty of lumpy bumpy embellies to it and have it still close...that I made. It is super sturdy too. I believe this is still for sale in my Etsy shop. I used Yellow Bicycle line Frightful for the papers. I love the way it turned out. I'd like to make more shaped albums, but it was VERY time consuming...worth it though!

The next thing I wanted to show you were the altered candles I made for Christmas gifts. I got this idea from Teresa's blog (T's Scrappin' Spot in my links). I loved hers so much that I had to make my own. I made monogrammed ones for my family and the snowflake one was for a gift exchange at hubby's work (they fought over it!). Everyone loved them, so thanks T!

We tried to save money this year, so I made baskets full of handmade stuff and I included Snowman Soup for all. This was the first time I made it and it's really good! I also made crispy peanut butter balls, peanut brittle, "female" fudge and peanut butter fudge. I made little tags for them all so they knew what the treats were.

My niece is hard to shop for, so we ended up with a gift card for her. The little holders they have at Wal-Mart are cute, but I felt the need to make my own. I made a wallet style holder that turned out really cute. I added a ribbon around the card so it could be easily pulled out of the pocket.

I made a couple of other Christmas cards that I had for sale, but I ended up sending them out to friends. I need to replace those with something else in my shop. :o)

Well, I think that's it for now. I have been working on some cards and ATC's, but I'll load those up later today or tomorrow. Have a creative day!
