It's a Boy

I wanted to do a layout for my neice who is expecting her first baby. She found out it is a boy, I was hoping it would be a girl.
Here it is. 

The base is AC cardstock.
The light blue, orange and red are from Citrus cardstock stack.

The printed paper is from Animal Crackers. The yellow and green are plain cardstock. I used my stickles to accent the rattle.

I used some rub ons that had.

All the cuts came from Doodlecharms and Cricut Sampler cricut cartridges. I added some brads that I got on clearance at Micheal's.

Here I popped up the little duck. Isn't he cute?
Well that's all I have for now, hope you liked it. Thanks for stoppin by and I love to read your comments. Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Happy Spring card

Here's a card I put together today out of my scrap bag. I used some rub-ons that I got at CKC in Louisville a few weeks ago. The yellow flowers are from the dollar bin at Michaels, daisys are from Martha Stewart.
I embossed the striped paper using my cuttlebug.

I added a little glitter to the centers of the daisies for a little sparkle.
Thats all I have for now, hope you liked it. Thanks for looking and love to see your comments, have a wonderful day.

Family Time Together LO

Here is a LO I designed on my Gypsy the other day. We went to visit some family out of town and I  wanted to scrap it. So here's page 1
For the base and dark blue mats I used AC Cardstock. The light blue journaling circle and "Together", and the stripeed mats are form DCWV Citrus stack. The yellow, orange and green are plain cardstock.
Here's a close up of page 1.

Page 2

I used these flower brads on the corners, I just folded the tabs down on the the mat corner. I used 3 of these on my LO.

Christmas card

Here is a card I put together. It doesn't have any christmas paper but I don't think it really needs it. So here it is.....  
It was made using a inkjet printer card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. The red background and trees are from Citrus cardstock, the red on the church and shadow on "Happy Christmas" is plain red cardstock as is the cream for the snow and star. I used a yellow marker to color in the center of the star.
This was from last year, I never got it posted.

Double page lay out

I was able to follow along with Tammy's blog and complete this lay out. Check out her blog at http://www.scrapcavecreations.blogspot.com/ . She does beautiful work. This was her "Lets scrap together" video series.
Here is my version of the lay out.
For the base I used DCWV cardstock, the blues for the bases are also DCWV cardstock, pattern paper is  from My Minds Eye. The orange and yellow are plain cardstock, the other die cut papers are from the scap bag.
Here's page one. "Spring" is from Gypsy wanderings, the bird is from Home Decor cricut cartridge, the notes are from Gypsy wanderings, the bird house I designed with my Gypsy.
"fling" was cut from cricut classic font, the water can flower and caterpillar are from stretch your imagination cricut cartridge. The ribbon is from Joanns and the little flowers are some that were given to me.

Here I used stickles to highlight around the edges of the flower.

Here's a close up of the "Spring" and bird.
That's all for now thank you for looking and hope you liked it. Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to see your comments. Have a wonderful day, God bless.

Birthday card for my hubby

Here is a card I made for my husbands birthday. A pretty simple card, but turned out cute.
I inked all around the edges with black ink, and around the "sign". I used grey textured card stock for the base, red, black,blue and white smooth card stock for the car and sign.

Grey ribbon is the "poles" of the sign. It had little loops on the sides, I cut those off. As you can see I popped the car up for dimension. I cut the car from Martha Stewart Holiday Cakes cricut cake cart., Happy birthday I believe came from cricut classic font.
Well thats all for today hope you enjoyed stopping by, I love to read your commments so please feel free to leave some! Thank you and have a wonderful day! God Bless!
