This week I officially opened my Etsy store. So far I have several sets of my first note cards and a set of wedding cards. Most of my other favorites that I have made have been given away. I am hoping to start making more cards and party decor just to list. If you are friends or family and live locally and I can meet you to deliver cards and refund shipping.
Please check it out!

Thinking of you!

I have a fun pack of paper that has lots of different butterfly patterns. I loved the bright colors of pink, purple, and greens in this one. I made a die cut with my cricut in a dark pink polka dot patterned paper. Then covered it with glitter. I love how girly this card is.  Madison got to use this as a birthday card for a friend this week. She loved it!

Note cards set 3

Here is my final set of note cards. These have all been from the first set I made when I decided to try paper crafting. These are very similar to the first set I showed with images cut from the same 12x12 sheet and paired with coordinating papers. I love the glittery accents on these cards.

On this card I added a strip of matching paper to the inside of the card as well to carry the colors throughout.

Thank you cards

Here is another set of cards using patterned strips. I love the springy flowers in this set. I paired it with a coordinating strip of ribbing again. This time I added a frame with a stamped border and Thank you message using white ink on colored paper. I love the soft look of these cards.

Note cards set 2

Here is the next set of note cards I created. This one was even less steps to make. Again I took a strip of paper from a 12x12 sheet that had stripes of different patterns. I loved these bright flowers. Then I added a strip of scalloped border and coordinating ribbon. A message can be stamped in the blank space for the appropriate occasion or just left the way the are.

Note cards

My first set of cards that I made was a blank set of note cards. I took a piece of scrapbook paper that was a whole bunch of boxes with cute images in them and cut it all up. I had another piece that was stripes of lots of patterns. I cut it into separate strips as well. I just pieced them together with either a coordinating print paper or one of the patterned strips and a solid card stock base. Very easy and cute. They have worked well as thank you cards and notes from Madison. They also gave me a chance to practice with different types of adhesives.
Here is part of my first set.

Wedding Cards set 2

As promised here is the second wedding card set. This is my favorite. I love how crisp the silver and white look. And particularly how sparkly this set is. I may have to go get more of this paper to create a few more.

Wedding Cards

I was asked by a friend to make a wedding card for her to use. I set off to the craft store to find some suitable paper. I came home with 3 options and some embellishments. I have used 2 so far creating 2 sets of wedding cards. I love the cake embellishments on these cards. They add so much sparkle.
Here is the first set.

Come back Monday to see set number 2.

The big 1-0!

ETA: Sorry to anyone who read this earlier today. Apparently my pics were to big to be fully seen.

My little sister turned the big 1-0 this last weekend. She asked me to make her a cake. Her party theme was a dog set from Birthday Express.

She asked for a paw print with blue and green polka dots. This is what I made.

I also happened to have pawprint paper so I made her a card as well. Since being 2 digits is such a big deal I decided to add a 10.

Happy Birthday Haley! I love you  ~Sissy

Gift bags

I am in the process of making several things right now. Until I have pictures to share I will show you some crafts from Madison and Sydney's birthdays. I made a gift bag for Sydney's gift to coordinate with some tissue paper I had found.
And I made favor bags for Madison and Haley for some extra treats I bought. The girls loved having their names on them. Madison carried hers around for weeks. It doesn't take much to make a white bag look cute.

Black & Red

I came across this paper looking for something to make a wedding card with. I stopped my search and sat down to make a completely different card all together. This is what I cam up with. I started with a gray background but realized I needed more color. I decided to play off the red in the flowers. I love the contrast it brings. Amazing how cheery red can make black seem.

My Little Pony Birthday Party

I have shared some of these photos on my personal blog but I thought they would be fun to share here as well.
I created digital invitations that I printed, cupcake picks, water bottle labels, and favor boxes for Madison's 3rd birthday. Birthday parties are a major weakness for me. I LOVE planning them and adding the special little details that make the theme go even further. I am full swing into planning the boys party and can't wait for my best friend to find out what she is having so I can get started on her baby shower. There will be lots of pics to share over the next few months.
