What a great Blog!!!

I'm always looking for great sites to get ideas from, and everyone knows how much I love my Cricut machine, and making cards. Well I found this amazing site that shows great ideas and different cuts for the Cricut machine. If you're looking for creative ideas, go and check them out...

They focus on the newest Cricut machine that came out, the Gypsy! I don't have one yet, but I'm hoping that I've been a really good girl this year, and Santa might bring me one for Christmas!!!

Well take care for now, I'll be back again with more updates etc!!!

Cards and more cards!

I'm back......sort of!

Well after I made that batch of cards life decided to get busier than it already was and I haven't had a chance to pop back on here!

I have still been busy making cards and such, just haven't had a moment to post them here, and tell you all about them.

Well, it's still pretty busy here, so I'm sorry I'm just gonna post some cards I've been working on lately, and had time to photograph! and then I'm gonna run again!

Lots of stuff on my plate these days, and little time for card making and my paper crafting!

I promise to be back again soon...........really......honestly.......soon!!!
Take care till then, and hope you like my new ones.

PS - I haven't even had a chance to list these on my etsy shop yet, but if you are interested in anything you see here, just give me a shout. If you'd like something custom done, give me a shout! I've already been approached for a couple of custom things, and those are the ones I love doing, so please, don't hesitate........give me a shout! LOL!!

I've finally been card making again!

My SIL has asked me to make a few cards for her and I am so excited. I love making cards, but I love it more when I have a purpose for making them, or know who they are for!
I'll just share a couple of them with you, as I don't want her peeking and seeing them before she receives them! LOL!!!
Kids are back in school soon, so I'm hoping to have a little bit more time to pop in here a bit more often. Well at least I have good intentions.........LOL!!!
Let me know what you think, and I'll see you again shortly!
Take care,

Mini Paper bag Wedding Photo Album in Pink and Black

Hello there! Yes, I know, it's been awhile........again!
Things were a little crazy here for awhile. School finishing, teacher appreciation cards & gifts, dance recitals, get the idea. Of course, as usual I forgot to take photos of everything, so I can't share them with you.
However, I do have this one to share! I just added a new item to my etsy shop, and I'm thrilled, because it's been ages since I was able to list a new item!
This is a handmade paper bag photo album, with a wedding theme. I came across these gorgeous pink and black patterned papers and fell in love with them. The album is approx 5x5 inches and the last page has a little pocket for you to put extra photos, name tags, anything you like.
If you pop over to my etsy shop (link on the right!) you can view a couple more photos.
Well gotta run, getting ready for company tomorrow. Guess that means no crafting for me for a few days.........again!
Take care,

Invitations Made!!!

My sister in law asked me to make the invitations for my nephews baptism, and I was so excited, until it came down to actually making them and my mind went blank!!

So I started to think of my SIL and what she likes and COLOUR came to mind. She loves colourful things. So then I decided on a cross for the religious aspect of the ceremony, then thought about layering a few crosses on top of each other. Well it's not exactly what I pictured in my mind, but it may be even better! The result looks like a stained glass cross!!! I thought it was neat.
Now the insecure part of me has to show them to my SIL!! Hope she loves them as much I loved making them!

Take care till next time,

I've been absent again!

Well things are still crazy around here, and I haven't had a chance to pop in and visit, let alone any time to craft and make cards! The dance recital is over, the company has come and gone, and now all the summer activities are starting up! Where does all the time go? Not that I'm complaining, because I know in a few years they are not gonna want me to be taking them everyone or involved in so many activities, so I'm taking it all in now while I can!

As you can see, I did have a chance to make a few new cards, and I'm making triplets these days as I now have 3 places to send my cards to!! Like I wasn't busy enough! LOL!! Ok, not complaining about that either!
Take care, smell the flowers and enjoy the kids. At least that's what I'm trying to do!

Custom order of Mini Thank You cards

Well it's been pretty busy around here this weekend! I've been running around for days, and there doesn't seem to be an end in site .... till about JUNE!! LOL!!!

Anyway, in my SPARE time (ha!) this weekend, I was working on these little mini Thank You cards for a wonderful friend - Emily. She's been working on rasing funds for Erase MS and got together with another etsy seller, bovinebubbles, to package up some wonderful handmade creams, lotions and soaps. She saw some of my little mini Thank You cards and decided to order some for the package! I was so thrilled, and honoured. I missed out on the fundraising this time around, but asked if I could participate on the next one. Emily said she was gonna try again in December, so I'm gonna try and make up a batch of cards for her to sell to raise funds. I should probably get working on them now, what with how long it takes me to get cards done around here!

Here's a couple pictures of the cards I made for her. If you are ever interested in a custom order for any occassion, please contact me. I love working on custom orders!
Take care,

Hi There!

I'm sorry, I know it's been awhile since I visited........just too much on the go here! Anyhow over that last few days I've managed to get in a bit of crafting time and wanted to share some of my new cards with everyone. I'm pretty excited about them, they are a little bit out of my ordinary stuff.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them! You'll find them in my etsy shop shortly if your interested.

U Rock Handmade Card

I made this cute little card for one of my darling little nephews (ok so I'm a month late!!!) I really liked how the guitar turned out so I made an extra for my etsy shop. The darn thing took me ages to figure out, but once I did I really liked it! My picture taking skills are not that great, but can you see the red part of the guitar, I used micro glitter! IT's so sparkly, I love it!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, mine was pretty quiet, which is why I ended up having time to make a new card!
Take care, till next time!

Make a WISH

Here's a couple new cards that I'll be listing in my shop shortly. I loved this patterned paper the moment I saw it (just don't tell anyone it's actually Valentine's paper!) The rich creamy colours of the pink and green just go so well together.
There's a couple of different techniques used on these cards, embossing, die cutting, stamping and of course a few dabs of glitter to draw it all together.

Thanks again for looking, take care and I'll see you again soon.

Personalized Stationary......with a Monogram

Here's the finished product........what do you think? I love this one, and from corresponding with Victoria, this is what I felt from her. She said she loves micro glitter (like me!!) and if you love glitter, you gotta love swirls! So I incorporated glitter, her initials, some craft punches and a bit of pizzaz. I really hope she likes it.
I'll keep you posted!
If you interested in something custom for yourself, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love working on custom requests, and the ideas and uses for paper crafts are endless........books, party favors, wedding favors, stationary, gift bags, cards.........I could go on forever!

I'm so Excited!!!

A wonderful lady found my etsy shop and purchased a couple of cards from me. I've emailed her back and forth a few times and she is one of the kindest people I have met. She was so wonderful with her comments on my cards, she said she had seen HUNDREDS of cards on Etsy (there really is hundreds are card sellers) and she thought that mine were the BEST she had seen......I was so overwhelmed, I actually blushed reading her email! She also left me some very very kind and wonderful feedback for my shop after she recieved her cards.

So now I am going to try and make personalized stationary for her! I have an idea in my head, and hope to have a prototype for her tomorrow, if I can find some time (maybe I won't do that load of towels tomorrow! hehe!!).

I'm so excited (did I mention that already?).

Take care,

Mini Thank You cards

Well I've finally been able to make a few cards, and I'm really excited about these ones. I've been waiting for all my new Stampin' Up! stamps to arrive and when they did, I knew this was the first little mini cards I would make! I love the colour of blue and chocolate brown and I incorporated that with the small curly stamps and punch, then added a little punched flower to top it off.
I'm gonna be listing these in my Esty shop shortly.

If you like what you see, please don't hesitate to contact me with any comments or custom requests.

I'm soooo looking forward to creating more lovelies with all my new stamps and punches and paper!

I've also been looking into a new stamping technique, called MCT. Right now I'm just searching for the correct paper to use and then I'll be posting all my new stuff here too......can't wait!!!

Take care,
