Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my daughter's friend's birthday. The inside says "Hope your Birthday is as Sweet as You."

This is a card I made just because. I had the ballerina ribbon and the printed paper and decided to make a ballet card. My daughter is a ballerina so I'm sure I will have an occasion to use it.

Anniversary card

My friend and her husband are celebrating their 9th anniversary which happens to be the leather anniversary. So, I did a technique to make brown paper look like leather to make this card.

Diaper Cake

My friend is having a baby boy so I made her a diaper cake. Not my ususal scrapbooking / card making but still crafty. There are two bottles in the center and I made it out of size 2 diapers so she could keep it in tact for awhile.

I finished my cards for my mother for Mother's Day. I hate that I rushed because they didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked. I am going to work on some sets to keep around for quick gifts. I used the gatefold card from Stamp tv on a few, the Stamp tv quilt card on one, and the pinwheel from on some. I also used my new Kreate-A-Lope to make cards and envelopes to match. Most of the cards I left blank on the inside so she could personalize them and she liked that.

Here they are.

This one with the north wind blowing the leaves off the tree is her favorite. I had no idea what she would do with it but when I got started I couldn't stop. I heat embossed the tree and stickled the leaves and north wind.

Somehow I missed scanning two of them. I did one black and white with black flowers on the front and one word in each flower center that said I'm thinking of you. The other card that didn't get scanned is a card with praying hands on front and a poem of encouragement inside. On the black and white one and the happy anniversary one I used a new technique I learned. Making your own rubons. I printed the words backwards onto some over head projection paper and then rubbed the words right where I wanted them.

I am working on a project for my mother for Mother's Day. I am making her a set of greeting cards that she can send out throughout the year. This is the one I made for Thanksgiving after being inspired by a fellow scrapper and Hettys blog

Hopefully I will get a bunch done in a week. Ill post as I complete. Good thing my mother doesn't read my blog!
