Patriotic Wall Hangers

Today was the first day of Summer Vacation!  So we decided since the last few weeks we have been on the go nonstop that today would be a lazy day!!  It was nice we slept in and the kids did their own thing played Legos, Wii, watch some TV, and even read some too.  They also played with Liana also when my DT Sister AJ came over to craft!   I  made my Design Team Item for the week and made my item for my Mixed Media Swap.  Since last time I waited till the night before to finish it up.  I'm ahead for July now.  I even painted some other things that I hoped to finish and post tonight but if not I will post them tomorrow sometime after I get done cleaning up the house.  It is in need of some good cleaning!! 

This month theme is Free Choice.  So I went with these little 7x7 Patriotic Wall Hangers.  I used some 7x7 pieces of chipboard that came in my package of scrapbook pages.  All the paper I used was from Joann's a few weeks ago when they had a sale on Paper.  I love this stamp set from CTMH it is Vintage USA.  I stamped with Outdoor Denim and Cranberry from CTMH.  The 2 ribbons  used are Celebrate It from American Collection that I got from Michael.

BFF Card

Hello Everyone!
I made this card yesterday before the kids got out of school.  They just had a half day so I wasn't able to get my card posted before I picked them up.  Then we had too much going on the rest of the day that I never made it back to my craft room. 

I hope you enjoy my new card!  I bought this stamp set from Inkadinkodo a few years ago and used a couple of times and found in my stamp drawer the other day.  I think it is such a cute set.  I embossed the BFF with gold powder on black paper.  I used the my spots and dots folder to emboss the yellow on my card.

Thank You Cupcake Card

I made up just a cute little Thank you card today.  I love this little cupcake embossing folder.  I used white paper and put my watermelon ink on the folder and then emboss it.  I'm stuck on using kraft paper for everything right now but I love it :)

Sympathy Cards

The other day I picked up a new stamp set at Michaels since I really didn't have many with sentiments.   I hadn't gotten around to using them till today and I wish it could have been because I wanted to just make a card.  The owner of the grocery store where I used to work, his wife passed away this week.  I'm sending the top one to their daughter and the bottom one to her husband.  She was a very sweet lady.

I just wanted to share my new Digital Scrapbook Pages I made last week.  I can't believe my babies are 9 and 7 now.  They are growing up so fast!!  I used the Grunge Graduation Kit from Creative Memories and this is one of my favorite kits right now.  If you have any digital question let me know.

Have a good day!

Travel Journal

 If your stopping by to see the HIMCR Mascline Birthday click Here.

My friend left this week for vacation to see her Grandbabies and to her in-laws anniversary party.  I wanted to make a journal for her to take along on the trip.  I love all the cute  images on the
 Creative Memories Traveler cartridge.  It was so hard to just a few cuts to go on the
 front of the journal.

I cut an envelope from the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More to put in the inside cover for any small items they collect on the trip.

HIMCR #50 Technique: Heat Embossing

I had so much fun this week making my card!  I got to go over and craft with my DT sister AJ and Amy from Scrap This, Save That.  I made a few other cards this week and I'm starting my kids teacher's end of the year gifts now.  They both want scrapbooks for their teachers. I have one book almost done and one to go.  My plans for today are to stay home and scrap all day!! 

This week challenge is Techique: Embossing Powder!!  I had so much fun with this card.  I hadn't used embossing powder in forever!!  It works so much better with my new heat gun.

I used my new CTMH stamp set Life is Tweet!
I embossed the bird on a seperae piece of paper and cut it out and attached it with a piece of foam tape.  The edge and how tweet of you are embossed right on the card.  I stamp the tree branch on the card in chocolate in and chalk the edges and some of the front of the card in chocolate also. 
I'm not sure what the name of my embossing powder is but do remember getting it from Joann's last summer in a big package.

Now it's time to check out my DT sister's creations!

One more Father's Day Card

I finally finished all my Father's Day cards with the help from my daughter.  She helped me emboss paper and stamp my tools for Opa. The most excited part is I even got my Dad's in the mail along with new pictures of the kids to the Grandma for late Mother's Day presents.  May is just a busy month for us.  My daughter's birthday was just a few days after Mother's Day and my son's birthday is 3 days later.  So I feel caught up for the time being!! 

This is the Father's day card I made for the kids to give to Opa. He is their adopted Grandpa. We lived just 2 house down from therm and they are great to the kids and us.  

I also thought this was a great card to enter in Creative Cutter Room Challenge today.

The tool bench is cut from Silhouette Cameo and the tool stamps are from Technique Tuesday Tool Time.

Happy Father's Day

I have had these little Father's Day stamps sets on my desk for weeks.  This morning I was inspired to use them for a challenge at Pink By Design weekly challenge called Ink it Pink.  It is to use words in your background.  I thought this paper and stamp sets worked well together. 

Here is a the piece I stamped for the background paper of words before I cut it and ink the edges.
Stamp sets are the little sets you get from Joann's in the $1 bin.
CTMH Topiary, Citrus Leaf, Pondersoa Pine, and Chocolate.

Thank you gifts for School

I wanted to make a little something to give to my kids teachers and the office staff at our school.  A few weeks ago my friend had made some of these tags and thought they were so cute.  So this afternoon my daughter and me made one to see how we were going to like it. I used the school paper pack I got at Michaels and the Tags, Bags, and More cartridge.  Then just stamp Thank you on a piece of paper and cut it out.  I'm so excited to finish them all up and hand them out at school.

Father's Day Card

I couldn't decide on what to use to make my Husband Father's Day card so I pulled out my box with all my cricut books in it and remember I had the Block Party.  I love this grill!!  So I decide it would be a BBQ theme card.  He is going to love it cause just the other night we was at Wal-Mart and he bought some new things for his grill. 

Hope you enjoy!!

Polka dot Chapstick Card

Hello Everyone! 
I just finished up my item for my Mixed Media Swap that I do every month.  This month I decided to make these cute little Polka Dot Chapstick Card holders and it's also all about polka dots this week at CAS-ual Fridays.

I had enough of this green polka dot paper in my scrap box from a swap I did a few years ago.  So I'm not sure who made this paper but I love it.  The card is a cut from my Silhouette Cameo.  Then I cut out flowers from my CTMH cricut cartridge and the hearts are from my Creative Memories punch.  I'm so happy that I made everything from my scrapbox!! 

Hope you have a great weekend!!
