More August Birthdays!

Birthday Wiper

Back of Wiper Cards
Here are some Wiper Cards that I made for my brother in law, Tom and my sister, Andrea's birthdays.  It is fun to see how this card works when you pull from both sides and an image pops up! Here is the link to make the wiper cards!  Happy Birthday Tom and Andrea!

Birthday Z Fold

The back!
I have made this Z fold golf card before for a family member who loves golfing but wanted to do it for a friend who turned 70 last month and actually works for a golf course in the winter in Florida.  Our friends also celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary and I made them a Golden Anniversary card to celebrate!  Happy 50th Anniversary Elas! 

My last card for August Birthdays is another Card in the box with a unicorn!  All little girls love unicorns with rainbows.  I used my new castle die from Elizabeth Craft and my new stamp set from SU that has the sentiment "Hope your day is magical!"  The rainbow die is also from Stampin up. The paper collection I used is from Graphic 45.  Happy Birthday Julia!

Back of the card
I hate to say it but summer is almost over and school is starting up soon around here. September is just around the corner and I have many cards to do for friends and family.  So I better get busy!!

Christmas Cones

 My sisters and I are doing a couple of craft fairs in November of this year and this is a new craft project that Chris saw on Pinterest so the 3 of us decided to give it a try.  It is called Kimekomi. In one of the tutorials that I watched she did say that you get better the more you do and I think she is right.  This is the first one I did and I had to take out quite a few panels but I do like the final result.  I found the template for this one on  Pinterest and used fabric that I already had.  It is 15 inches tall and would make a beautiful centerpiece for a table or just a fun keepsake!  I am going to make a Santa one next and hopefully a gingerbread house and boy!  I have some ideas so need to get busy finding some templates.

August Birthdays

Love making a Card in a Box card!  This one is for a friend who has a birthday this week and she loves the beach.  Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Collection is so beautiful!  I used some dies  and punches to make the beach/ocean scene.  I found the sentiment on Pinterest. Happy Birthday Kathi!

Perfect sentiment
I have been so busy  making July and August birthday cards.  Another birthday to a friend who is Irish and thought he would get a kick out of a green origami shirt with a little shamrock on the front of his shirt. Happy Birthday Brian!
