Hope Your Day Sparkles

One of my best girls recently became engaged!  Yay, Sara!  I can't wait to be a part of your big day!  :)  I made this little card for her:
I used the Sweethearts cartridge to cut out the ring and the rock!  I added some glitter chevron adhesive ribbon and stickles to give it some bling!  The sentiment "Hope your day Sparkles" is from the Pink by Design "Dazzle" stamp set!  I thought the sentiment was perfect!  The pearls are from Martha Stewart.  I'm going to head on over to the Pink Cricut Blog and link up!  You should come take a look too!  You will be inspired!  Then, maybe next Tuesday, you can link up too!  Let me know what you think about this card...and if you'll link up with Pink Cricut next week!

Good Gumdrops

Goodness, I wish had more time to do this!  I love papercrafting & I love sharing it with people!  I just wish I had more time to do it....and then even more time to do some proper posts!  Well, today is one of my good friends birthday so I made her this cute little card.
She has a sweet tooth much like myself, yet we both try to keep it in check.  I figure since we deprive ourselves from enjoying those tasty sweet treats daily, we could at least celebrate with sweets...kind of, anyway!  I used the Sweet Shop cartridge for the words and the candy.  I also ran some of the papers through my Cuttlebug, and added a little stickles too.  Enjoy!

'Stashing through the Snow

My Friend, Sara, is currently infatuated with mustashes.  She saw a picture of a mustashe ornaments and thought it would be fun to make these ornaments but wasn't sure how to go about it.  It was really pretty easy.  I bought large, round, frosted ornaments from Hobby Lobby as well as mustashe stickers.  I already all the other materials.  We poured hairspray (cheap-o hairspray) into the ornaments and made sure to coat the inside.  We dumped out the excess.  Then, we poured glitter in each ornament and shook them all around to be sure the entire inside of each ornament was coated with a nice solid coat of glitter.   From there, we put on the stickers - Yes, the letters took a little patience, but it was well worth it!  From there, we sprayed the outside of the ornaments with more hairspray and "dipped" the bottoms in MS white flocking powder.  The red ornament, I actually dipped into a white glitter.  This hopefully gives off a "covered in snow" effect.  To finish off the ornaments, we selected ribbon from my stash and attached it to the top of the ornaments so we could hand them from the tree!  I hope you like our craftiness!  We had fun creating these...oh and these really took no time at all!  Super simple, easy & fun!

Inner Goddess

Today, I just wanted to make a card for a sweet friend I met last month.  Have you ever meant someone and just knew from the beginning that the person was special?  Maybe you're not quite sure why or what role they are to play in your life, but for some reason, you know this person was meant to be a part of your life?  I met a friend at our 31 National Conference this year.  She is just so sweet and genuine.  I love her to pieces.  :)  Since she lives in Florida and I in Indiana, it's not likely we will see each other again until next summer's conference, but it's okay!  We can be long distance friends - especially in today's day and age with all the social media outlets!  Here is what I came up with for my dear friend:
The turquoise pattern paper is from Recollections - My Favorite Things stack.  the hello paper is from DCWV's The Home Spun Matstack.  The flowers and pearls are also Recollections.  The lace, I just had lying around here.  I"m sure I picked it up at Hobby Lobby earlier this summer!  Oh and the little birdy is on an ACTION WOBBLE!  These things make everything more fun!

Here is the inside (the sentiment is from Pink by Design's "Fifty Shades" sentiment set):

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you like my little card!  Happy Crafting!

Have a TWEET Day!

What a fun sentiment!  Birds are all the rave right now!  I'm not sure why, but I've totally fallen for all the cute things we can do with birds too! 

Pink by Design also has a challenge up right now to create something with birds.  You can find the challenge here.  So come play along with us!

 Here is a card a made (well, actually, I made a couple of them) for my Mom's birthday.  I also had a friend with a birthday around the same time, so she received a similar card!  Here is my card:
The sentiment "Have a Tweet Day" is from the Pink by Design set called "Take the Cake".  You can find it here!  The paper is from DCWV's "The Chateau Lavender Stack."  Aren't the colors so soft and pretty?

I hope you've enjoyed my blog today!  Happy Crafting!


Masculine Cards

Why are masculine cards so hard for me?  Or maybe why is it that the MEN in my life don't like pink, purple, glitter and bling?  Hmmm, if they did, it would make creating for them A LOT easier!  Ha! 

My husband and I celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary this week!  :)  I've made him a MASCULINE card.  At least, I hope it is masculine.  I have trouble with the "cheesy" cards - even when buying from the store (which I NEVER do anymore).  I just can't do cheesy with my "meaningful" cards.  I can do fun & cheesy with cards for friends and brothers, etc - but not so much for parents, grandparents and the husband.  If I could do cheesy - it might make it a little easier.  Then I could use tools and puns and food, etc.  Oh well, I'll save that stuff for my layouts and well friends and nephews!  The nephews especially, love the cheesy!

Anyway, here's what I came up:
The paper is from the Recollections Everyday Moments stack.  The bling is from imaginisce.  The sentiment is from Pink by Design "Rain or Shine" set.  I also stamped the inside with a Pink by Design sentiment from the "Small Things" set.  It says "You are my reason why".  Sorry, I didn't take a picture of the inside!

Thanks for letting me share with you!  Let me know what you think!

Happy Crafting!

Amazing & Bright

Oh gosh, it's been awhile!  Life became a little hectic!  I spent a week in July in Atlanta at our Thirty-One Gifts National Conference which was amazing!  I think I spend the entire month of August catching up from being away that one week!  EEK!  Here are a couple of cards I made today just for fun!  I plan on using them to CER (celebrate, encourage & reward) my 31 team!  I hope you like them!  I'm pretty pleased with the final results!

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me some bloggie love!
