Birthday Box Card

I have seen several of these box cards around and I just had to try this.  I was so much fun to make and looks so cute when it is all done.  I had to make several of them for the ladies at work for their grand-children.  The other was a princess themed card.  I have another in process that will have a star wars theme.  The directions are at:   The trouble I had was trying to stick it in an envelope, lol.  tfl.

New Baby Shape Card

I made this shape card using my Silhouette Cameo.  One of our receptionists became a Grandma again.  I just loved this image and you can tell by looking that she had a grand-daughter.  tfl.

Cricut cut used as stencil

Hello again, it is time for another challenge over at BBTB2.  Maureen is our talented design sister this week and has challenged us to use a cricut cut as a stencil in our project.  I honestly waited till the last possible moment because quite honestly I had trouble with this challenge.  I still am not happy with my project and hesitate to post it.    Anyway come and join us. Our other talented ladies have posted some awesome projects.  I used Art Philosophy for the card shape and Lori's Garden for the image.  I used one of the images in the background from Art Philosophy for the stencil and used my embossing gun to add some sparkle.  tfl.

You're scent-sational!

I made this card with the Artiste cartridge.  This card actually has a band that goes around it.  I put the sentiment on the inside of the card.  The little skunk is from the Silhouette Online store.  I have been using more spring colors in hopes that it will hurry spring up!!  tfl

Grandchildren Valentine's

Wow, Valentine's Day is tomorrow!!  I thought I had better get these posted.  Several of these cards used the Silhouette print and cut.  I cut a couple of copies of the image and popped them.  I can't do a flat image, lol.  Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!!  tfl.

Hello, another cold day here, but at least it is sunny.  I think I shivered all the way to work this morning!!  Anyway, this card is made using my cameo.  I loved this "viewmaster" cut and had to get it from the Silhouette Online Store.  tfl.

My Happy Place

Our challenge for the week is to post our crafty places.  The challenge of it is to clean it up to make sure it is somewhat presentable, lol.  This is a room that my children once used for their bedroom.  My husband has made some of the shelving in the room.  The couch makes into a bed for my grand children to sleep over.  tfl.

Valentine Tea Cup Box

Somehow, I did not take a very good pic of this.  It looks better in person.  This is a cute box from the Silhouette Online Store.  I was going to give it to my boss.  She likes tea.  I am entering it in a challenge over at the Silhouette Challenge Blog.  tfl.

You're Monsteriffic

I made this valentine for my son.  I love this cute little monster found on the Silhouette Online Store.  The center step card is also found there.  I added crystal laquer to his eyes.  I entered this in a challenge over at My Craft Spot.  tfl.

This is a card that I created for the BBTB2 challenge for this week.  Jayne our talented design sister, has  the theme this week, to make a valentine project.  I pulled out my Love Struck cartridge and made this card with the Mojo Monday sketch.  I cut a shadow image just a little larger than the heart, because it was getting lost on my paper.  Come and join the fun.  tfl.
