Pop out Birthday!

 Loving this new die that I purchased a couple of weeks ago from Karen Burniston!  I used Graphic 45's Fairie Dust paper collection because I love the colors!  This card is for my son's girlfriend, Sabrina.  I think I will make a couple more for our craft fair in November which looks like it will be virtual.  Hope we will be able to participate.  Happy Birthday Sabrina!

This was a fun little vase with tulips (from Stampin up's owl punch) to make.  I thought this would be a cute birthday, anniversary or just thinking of you gift for someone.  It's perfect because  you don't have to water it!! Below is the link for the vase-have fun making it!  Thanks for stopping by!

September Anniversaries


Here is an anniversary card for my brother and his wife which was yesterday.  Happy 42nd Anniversary to a wonderful couple! These dies that I used are from Stampin up. The paper collection is graphic 45's French Country. Pretty autumn card to celebrate an autumn anniversary!

Sentiment on back

The second anniversary card is for my sister and her husband. Their anniversary is today and they are also a wonderful couple.  I think today is their 15th anniversary.  The dies that I used on this card is also from Stampin Up.  I love the arbor and gate-  giving this card a garden setting.  The paper is from Stampin Up as well. Happy 15th Anniversary!!

Another Theater Card



Sentiment on the back

 Another theater card as well as another September birthday for a friend's granddaughter.  Chloe loves her cats so I had to make a cat card!  The big cat inside the card is from Elizabeth Craft and the black cats,  I think, are from Memory box.  I did share the link on a prior post when I first started making these style cards so check back a couple of posts back.  Theater cards do have a BIG WOW factor to them! Thanks for stopping by.

Diorama for Lindsey


Love making these diorama cards.  I love how these cards fold to be put in an envelope to be mailed. This one is for my daughter who expressed that she loves unicorns!  My daughter's birthday was last week and I won't tell you that she turned 33! The unicorn is from Elizabeth Craft and the fairy is from Spellbinders. The clouds and rainbow is from Stampin up. The pretty paper is from Graphic 45, Fairie Dust!  Such pretty, pretty paper! and don't you just love purple! Happy Birthday Lindsey!

Box Mini Albums

Mini album with handles

Close up view

Inside layout

The tutorial for this boxed mini album is from Graphic 45 and the link is above.  My sisters and I are hoping to have a craft fair this November.  We have been busy making things but it doesn't look like it is going to happen.  We have made 3 of these boxed mini albums.  They measure 7 inches in length, 5 inches in height and 5 1/2 deep.  The outside of the mini album is  made of chipboard and the inside is heavy cardstock.  This one is a wedding album which would look great on a coffee table.  This makes such a great gift!  Enjoy!
