Teacher Christmas Gifts

I made these cute 3x3 cards for Carver's teachers to go with a small Christmas gift. I love 3x3 cards but I never seem to make them. Maybe if I had envelopes for them... hmmm... :)

I also made toppers to go on a bag filled with Smarties to go with their presents. For some reason I can't find the picture I took of them. But the sentiment said "Thanks for making me a Smartie!"

Merry Be Your Days

I wanted to challenge myself to make a one layer card. I don't like to make them because they don't seem finished to me but I actually kind of like how this turned out. I did have to add the ribbon so it's not truly one layer but close.

A Cup of Friendship

 When our Bible Study ended before Christmas, I organized with everyone to collect money to go towards a Nordstrom gift card and have this card for everyone to sign to thank Erica for hosting and leading us. 

You know when you have a piece of paper that you love so much that it ends up sitting there and never gets used? Well that was this coffee paper for me. My local scrapbook store doesn't carry it anymore so I'd have to get it online. It actually hurt to cut into it! :) But the end result was definitely worth it. This was a 5.5 x 8.5 card (just fold an 8.5x11 in half) so that everyone had room to sign it.

I originally cut the coffee cup to small for what I had in mind for Erica's card so I decided to use it on another card. The fun stamp is from a new set by Pink by Design called Extra Hot.

Calendar 2012

I made six calendars for Christmas presents. I don't know how next year will look because the company I get the blank calendars from closed. So if anyone knows a good place to get blank calendars, let me know. I like the 6x6 ones since that maximizes the amount of paper I use.

These are 5.5x8.5 which worked out pretty well. This is the front cover. I used What's Your Number? by Pink by Design to create the collage.

Thankful for U

Hi everyone!! I'm finally getting all of my pictures off of my camera so you should be seeing me for awhile while I update all the pictures I had on my camera.

This was a card I made, *cough* back in November. I'm so sorry for being so far behind but I am thankful for all of you that stayed with me during that first trimester blahs. :)

Pregnancy update

If anyone is interested in staying up to date on my pregnancy (can't believe I can actually say that again!), head over to our family blog. That's where I'll keep everything updated. :)
