Subway Art

Pink by Design has this stamp set that is amazing. It's called Subway Art. It looks like a background stamp but they are all different stamps. So you can use them individually or all together (like I did here). That is how I got the Be Grateful and Love Always in a different color.

Bounty of the Season

Ready for a super quick card? All I did was take a piece of paper from a matstack, put a mat behind it, the sentiment and ribbon. That's it! It kind of feels like cheating but I love this pumpkin so I'm ok with it. :)

Ho Ho Ho and I Believe...

I'm feeling the Christmas spirit. I haven't let myself turn on the Christmas music yet but it's only a matter of days until I break down. Here's a couple cards I made. They're the same design with different sentiments.

Baby Overalls

Hi all! I have another baby card for you today. Sometimes I find it frustrating that girls get all the cute stuff. So when I find cute boy things it makes me happy, like these overalls. :)

Little Socks

When I was making yesterday's card, it cut out these socks with the dress. I was originally going to just throw them away since they didn't go with my idea for the card. Then it came to me that I could make a card with just the socks! As Carver would say, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!" (Thanks Bob the Builder for teaching my son about the three R's.)

Baby Love

There seems to be another wave of pregnancy announcements on Facebook lately so I decided to make some cards to have on hand. I love the orange and pink together! It makes me think of rainbow sherbert. yum!

Wishing You Sparkle

**Today is the last day for voting on the Master Craft challenge. I'd love it if you would head over and vote for me. :) (I'm #27)

I had a craft show last weekend (it went pretty well, by the way) and figured I should make some boxes of Christmas cards to have. It's a good thing I did because my Grandma stopped buy and bought them all!! haha 

Here's the first set I made. Since you can get 6 mats from a 12x12 sheet of paper, I made a box of 5 and an individual card.

Blast Off!

There is one more day to vote on the Master Craft challenge over at Pink Cricut. I would love it if you would head over and vote for me. (psst! I'm #27). :)

I was busy with lots of crafting while I was also doing the Master Craft projects. So I'm going to be slowly getting those posted. I actually did a whole bunch of crafting in the last few weeks. Yay me!!

This was a fun, different card for me. I haven't been participating in challenges lately but I like to keep a list of what the current challenges are so I can use them as inspiration. If I remember right, this was for a transportation theme.

This is a post for the Master Craft Challenge at Pink Cricut. Voting will open on Oct 4th at 12:01am CST. I'd love it if you would vote for me. :)

There is a paper in the DCWV Rockstar stack that is a chevron pattern. All I did to make this card was cut it in half where the lines met. :)

I've been trying to use all the challenge materials on my projects. On of them was a scissor mouse from Westcott. Since it's a  tool, it doesn't show up in the projects, but I have been using it. Its a fun little tool and Carver has even tried it out. :) I've found that using a ruler/straight edge helps with getting a really straight line but you don't have to use it. This would probably be a really fun tool to use for wrapping presents too!

Bag of Coffee

This is a post for the Master Craft Challenge over at Pink Cricut. Voting will begin on Oct 4th at 12:01am CST, so please vote for me. :)

One of the challenge materials was this cute bag from State Line Bag Co. I knew I wanted to do a coffee theme but it sat on my desk for awhile while I mulled it over in my head. Here's what I finally came up with. :) It's hard to tell, but there's some green & brown twine on the top left.

A Pocketful of Love

This is a post for the MasterCraft challenge over at Pink Cricut. Don't forget to come vote for me starting Oct 4th! To see all my other Master Craft projects click here.

I made a box of cards! :) I'm so proud of myself. I haven't made a box in forever. I made cute little 3x3 cards to put in it. This project fell together so easily. Don't you love when that happens?

Here's the box. I used the new half pint stamp sets from Pink by Design. Aren't they so much fun?
 Here are the cards. I made two of each card.
