April Anniversary

Love this style card and Graphic 45's Love Notes! This tuxedo/card in a box card was fun to make. My sister and her husband's anniversary is coming up next week so I made this for them. Happy Anniversary the Burcham's!
I found this style card on Pinterest and it is called a Bay Window card. I loved making it because you have a lot of places to put your sentiment or just decorate like crazy. I started making the nautical one and couldn't stop! The best part is that it folds flat for easy mailing. Love it. Check out more pictures below for the inside and out.

Birthday Beach Chair

This is a perfect card for a high school friend's birthday next week. She posts pictures of the beach every week! It is her "happy" place! This is the sizzix pop up chair die but I cut slits to make it an adirondack chair! Just added some waves using a border punch and some Elizabeth Craft dies such as beach ball, sand pail with shovel. I used punches from Martha Stewart and Dies from sizzix for the shells. The paper collection is Graphic 45's By The Sea. I have been making doggie mattress pads for my daughter's puppy. He stays with us when she is working so he has 2 homes and needs 2 pads for each crate in his 2 homes. What a lucky dog to have 2 homes!! Here is one of the pads that I made. I love the fabric! There were so many prints to choose but these 2 made it.
Here is a picture of Oliver but we call him Ollie! He is 6 months old and weights about 60 lbs. He is going to be a big boy!
Here is Lindsey and Ollie at the Beach!

The Chemist is in!

Explosion boxes are the perfect for creating a setting that represents the receiver. This explosion box is a birthday card for our friend's birthday. My husband calls her the chemist because she makes perfect gin and tonics!! I made this bar setting for her with wine glasses, wine bottle and gin bottle charms. I loved the way it came out.
This is her birthday card that is tucked in the pocket. I found a lot of the sayings on Pinterest and it was so fun to make for her. Happy Birthday Lynne!
