Graduation Money Holder Card - 2012

Made this graduation card for a college graduated. I used some paper I got for a prize at my recent crop I attended. I used SU Black CS for the base and SU stamps for the front and inside of the card. I love how it turned out.

Old Window

A very very close friend gave me a window from her old house. It is a very old window that has ceramic knobs on it. I loved it and hung it in my house.

Cupcake Money or Gift Card Holder

I saw this idea many many years ago and never got around making one. Then I recently saw it again on Pinterest so decided to make it for my teacher's aide this year for her birthday. She has just remodeled her house and needed (well wanted) some new things for her new "house". I though money was the best gift. This is made by cutting a 3" Styrofoam ball in half and sliding the gift card or money down in the middle. You have to make a cupcake holder by making a according folded strip of 3" paper and then glue it around the ball. Add ribbon or flowers or whatever you want. It takes tons of hot glue. add a small binder clip to the top to clip on your money or gift card. This slides down the middle. It is easy to do. I got many orders to make more.

Wedding Ribbon Bride Card

Here is a card that I was requested to make for a friend. She wants it for a wedding she is going to this spring. I saw the idea on Pinterest but it didn't give directions so I made it up on my own. The Bride's dress is just white ribbon that I twisted and turned and glued down on the printed silhouette of the bride and groom. I added pearls and stickles to the dress. I love how it turned out.

Queen of the Crop

I just got back from a weekend crop held at Camp Harmony! They have them twice a year and I wouldn't miss them for anything. They are awesome. This was free for me since I won the Grand Prize last time. Although I didn't win it again, I had an awesome time and was Crown the Queen of the Crop Again. This Queen reigns continues. I won four prizes and got 54 pages down. I got a lot of accomplished and made some awesome friends. In fact, I'm planning on going to a friend's scrap yardsale at the end of MAY!! Whoo Hoo. Here are some pictures from the crop including my VERY EXPENSIVE DIAMOND Filled CROWN!
Here are the prizes I won!

Mother's Day Card using Nestabilities

I like how this tri fold card turned out. I used a nestabilities that I had but only cut half of it. Then embellished the card with my homemade flowers and some stamps and inking. I love how it turned out.

Shopping Deals at joanns

Did a little shopping and these are some of the deals I got. Just posting the ones that are really a good deal. I got them at Joanns. Love when I can find deals like this. I have bought most of nestabilities for 2.97.
