Sympathy Card

I made this card to send to a friend. I got the concept from a card done by Karen Dunbrook.

I made this card box and set of cards for my mom for Xmas. I didn't put a sentiment on the cards so that she can use them for any occasion. 

All the papers were from my stash. Mostly Stampin' Up + Teresa Collins. The flower and vase are from CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.

Send a Smile

These are some of the cards I'm sending off to Send a Smile 4 Kids. They send cards to various hospitals around the country for the nurses, etc. to give to kids who are staying there. I chose to make some for teenagers since that was a stated need. Hopefully these will make someone's day a little brighter.

Another Spring card

It's 53° here today. It's February. Apparently Mother Nature is not aware of that fact. Not that I'm complaining! Felt the need for another Spring card.

It really feels like Spring here, so I decided to make a Spring card.

Project Life

I have just recently begun to do Project Life by Becky Higgins. Love it! It allows me to quickly capture our week and get it documented. I am doing a hybrid version, which really works well for me. I started in February and this is what I have so far.

Best Buddies

I'm just learning to use My Memories to create digital scrapbooks. I was having issues with printing an 8x8 page, so I had to make it 8.5x11. That is why there is so much space at the top.

February Birthdays

I made 2 cards yesterday, using the same Art Philosophy cupcake. One is for my niece and one is for my brother. I really like how they turned out.

Monday, January 30, 2012


I made this card awhile ago, for no particular reason. Turns out, it's one of my daughter's favorites! Had to post it. All Stampin' Up products.

Sister Anniversary Card

I used a digi stamp by Bugaboo. Crack me up. Then I colored it with copics and tried up my pearl spritz. May have gone overboard on the spritz, but it was fun :-)

Thank-you cards

I had to get my thank-you's out today to my family for the birthday gifts. It was fun hanging out in the craft room today :-)

Soccer girl

I made this little card for my daughter, who loves soccer (hence the title of my blog - tee hee). I think it turned out very cute.

Butterfly card

Card I made "just because". All papers and stamps from Stampin' Up. Punch from Martha Stewart. I love butterflies

Congrats card

My niece just found out that a dance that she has choreographed for her high school dance corps is going to be performed at the National High School Dance Festival! Whoot Whoot! She is also in the running got the festival's Outstanding Student Choreography award. So very proud of her.

I am so proud of my daughter, I just have to share. She has Aspergers yet manages to function quite "normally" (whatever that truly is). Anyways, this is her second year of basketball and she is really starting to become a player. I'm trying to learn how to do digital scrapbooking, since I don't always have time to get it done otherwise. This is one of my first attempts. And yes, she made the shot :-)
