My Big Birthday Boy

Wow where does the time go?  My baby just turned five and my daughter turned 8.  Sigh I know everyone feels this way but they are growing up so fast.  I always struggle with boy cards since they are not my usual style but I am happy with how this turned out and he loved it.  He specifically asked me to make him one with this stamp and he was so excited to get it.  It was cute to see his reaction.

Supplies used: Crate Paper Boys Rule, Unity Stamps PH Determination, Spellbinders Ovals and Jumbo Scallops, Shinhan Touch Markers

FWF-My Daughter's Snow Peep Card

I have been making a bunch of Christmas cards lately, and when my 8 year old daughter saw the snow peep stamps she was in heaven.  She loves playing with my unity stamps and when I came home from work yesterday she showed me this.   Daddy cut her some shapes on the Cameo and she did the rest.  She asked me to post this because she is just like any crafter and loves getting nice comments on her work (she is just a bit more honest about it).

Supplies used: Shinhan Touch Markers, Snow Peeps, Homemade Enamel Dots

CAS Christmas Card

I am making Christmas cards again this year and have learned through the years to keep it CAS. I  need to make large quantities and after having made complicated cards over the years, I have learned my lesson.  I get bored making the same card for days on end, this is something I can whip up fairly quickly and still looks good.  I got the washi tape at Walmart with the gift wrap so it doesn't count as scrappy spending right ;)

Supplies used: Spellbinders Resplendent Retangles, Washi Tape, Unity Stamps

Fun with Decoden Bling-FWF

Recently I was lucky enough to be sent some DecoDen Bling to try.  It's really an interesting and fun product to play with.  It holds glitter very well and I have been experimenting with various ways to use it.  I used it to make the melting icicles on the stand for this card.  The stand is actually a lemonade stand from Unity but I thought it would be cute for a snow peep (it reminds me of Candy Cane stand pictures I did this year with the kids).  I just covered up the flowers and added the icicles made with the DecoDen bling.  I love how this turned out but now the kids are fighting over who gets the card, when in fact I want to keep it.

Supplies used: DecoDen Bling white, Unity Stamps Lemonade Stand, Unity Stamps Snow Peers, Twine, MME Paper
