Anna Claire is turning 9!

So my baby girl is having her 9th birthday in a few weeks.  We are throwing her party at the Skating Rink with a Rockin' 50's theme.  Today's project is a birthday card I made to give to her.
I made the card 5 1/4 x 4, using a 5 /14 x 12 sheet of cardstock, scored at 2", 4", 8",& 10".  Then I added some cute paper from My Mind's Eye-Happy Day 6x6 mat.
This cutie is an SVG file from SVG Cutting Files called Jukebox Jenna 50's Girl.  You can find her HERE.
The jukebox and the little birdies are from the Cricut Nifty Fifties cartridge.
I used quite a few items from Jaded Blossoms for my sentiments and inside of my card.  
You can find these goodies and more HERE.
This is what it looks like when you open it up!

 I used a piece of Stampin' Up! bakers twine on the Party Time tag!
I put Jenna(Anna Claire) on with an Action Wobble for fun!!
Now she can dance to the music!

I am entering a few challenges with this card:
Action Wobbles Challenge-Anything Goes  
Die Cuttin Divas-208 Music in our Schools

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card.  See ya next time!

Happy Easter 2015

I have another card today.  I used SVG files from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon and SVG Cutting Files.  I also used a cut from the Cricut Simply Charmed cartridge.


This card is an A2 sized card that I plan to give to a friend.  Is was super simple and fun to make.  Most of the papers I used were from my scrap bin, but the card base was Stampin' Up! and the Printed paper is a sheet from the "Happy Day" paper pad from My Mind's Eye. 
You can order this file from SVG Cutting Files HERE.


You can order this file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon HERE.


You can order this cartridge from Cricut.com HERE.
I used a sentiment from Stampin' Up! Whimsical Words on white cardstock, popped up with Stampin' Up! dimensionals on a teal scallop on a pink circle and popped up on the card.  I also added a few flowers with a skittle in the middle.  I used an Action Wobble to place my Easter basket with the little chickie in it to my card.  Action Wobbles make cards so much fun!


I plan to enter a few challenges with this card.

Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon Guest Designer

XFirst I would like to thank Lisa and Shannon at PPPR for allowing me to guest design today! I have 2 projects to share.  I highly recommend these files, so fun to use!

The monthly challenge at PPPR is: Get Cooking.  So, for my first project, I made a cookbook cover page for a cookbook I will be making for my children.  I used the Thanksgiving Feast files from PPPR.  Isn't this girl too cute?!  I have brown hair and eyes, so she had to have them, too.  I used a Peachy Keen face stamp for her face.  I also used a couple of cuts from Cricut From my Kitchen and Cricut Sweethearts cartridges.


For my second project, I made a cute little Easter treat box.  I used the Little Duckling file and the Gift Box with Window file from PPPR.  I plan to add a few Ghiradelli squares before giving to a friend.  I used my Cricut Exlore to cut these files and they are wonderful.  The fold lines are partial cuts and I love them!  This box went together so easily.  The ducks was super simple, too.  I added a sweet sentiment from Jaded Blossom that I placed on a scallop circle cut with a Jaded Blossom die.


I will be entering this project into a couple of Challenges:
     Cut It Up-Anything but a Card
     Scrappy Mom Stamps- Pink/Yellow
     Craftin Desert Divas-Easter Project

Leprechaun Friend

Today I  have another card using some of the same papers I used a couple of weeks ago with my leprechaun treat box.
I started with a Center step card SVG file I purchased from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I modified the file for my needs of course.
I chose my leprechaun and pot of gold from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  I popped the leprechaun on with an Action Wobble and popped the pot of gold on with Stampin' dimensionals.
I added some skittles I purchased from Double Click AKA Abusybee.  I added a sentiment using Jaded Blossom stamps and dies, with twine from Stampin' Up!-Old Olive.

I will be entering my card in the following Challenges:

Cut It Up Challenge-#66 Windy
Here is a picture of my Leprechaun wobbling! LOL!
See you next time!

Leprechaun Smile!

This week's project is sweet little treat box.  This week is Photo Inspiration at "Just Us Girls" Challenge Blog.  I had so much fun making this nugget easel box from SVG Cutting Files!  I used a sentiment from My Creative Time's, More Gift Card Sentiments.  I used Mini Tag Dies 2 and Simple Sayings Candies from Jaded Blossom Stamps.  My sweet little Leprechaun is from the  Cricut Simply Charmed cartridge.
Here is a picture of the box closed.  I used my Cuttlebug for the embossed circles on the gold paper.
Here is the top all the way back, not propped on the sentiment.
And here is the box with drawer open to expose the treats and the easel propped on the sentiment.
I hope you like what I came up with .  I will be entering this project in the monthly challenge @ SVG Cutting Files Blog & "Just Us Girls" Challenge Blog.  See you next time!
