1st Birthday card

Finally had some time to create over the weekend. Between the ceiling fan and window it was tolerable to sit and be crafty. On Saturday I went to a crop with a couple of friends and worked on a friends Wedding Album. Mind you said friend now has a one year old baby. None the less here wedding album is coming along. I need to get her permission before I post any of my scrap pages.

On Sunday I was able to create a 1st Birthday card for my nephew Ethan. Nothing like the last minute the party was in a matter of hours. Anyway I used the Celebrations Cricut cart and cut the items at 4 inches which in hind sight I caution you to cut at maybe 2.5 or 3 inches as the 4 inch cut caused my card to be 7.5 by 5.75 and as such not a standard size A2 card. I used pop dots and some ribbon I had kicking around. I also caution you that when buying pop dot to just go with the bigger ones they are easier to peel the backing off.

Because of the odd size of the card and the time crunch. I simply made a "folder" for it and used the blue ribbon to "wrap" it.

Creating of a different kind

well I had hoped to do some paper creating this past weekend. However, I did some creating of a different kind. I have been re-organizing my craft room yet again, still trying to get it just right and fully functional. I hope to post some pics in the next couple of days, of course that is if the heat breaks long enough to keep me from continuing to melt. I have started a digital scrap book using Creative Memories, Memory Manger and Storybook Creator. I hope to post some sample pages. I would like to give a shout out to the best CM consultant in the whole Wide World: Sandy Anderson.

a little about me

Had a wonderful weekend at the lake house with family. I hated to leave but also needed to come back to work so I can pay for my craft addiction. Speaking of which.... My new cuttlebug and folders came in the mail today. So watch for some interesting posts using this. In addition I came back from the long weekend to find that I have my very first follower. I am sincerely flattered.

Submission for MPS Color Challenge

My Pink Stamper issued a color challenge using pink, green, brown and orange. Here is my submission. I used Stretch your Imagination cricut cart. I cut AUTUMN at 9 inches and then the shadow. I cut the tree at 3.5 inches. I used a variety of creative memories paper. I added stickles to the pink ribbon and used dimensionals behind AUTUMN and the tree. I did need fine point adhesive to work with the little leaves and tweezers. ENJOY!!!
