Fun February

Triple point card style for a friend's birthday, is a fun card to make. I used Graphic 45's paper collection for the card. Love making different style cards and there is always one to find on Pinterest. I have made this style before for a someone's birthday. The inside of the card is cool too!
The next card that I made for a friend's friend is a wiper card. It is cool how the tab just pops up! How fun is that!
Lastly, my sister and I had a custom order to make rosette Christmas Trees. They are so adorable and I used mostly Christmas paper from Graphic 45 - 12 days of Christmas. It is such a beautiful paper collection. Can't wait to deliver them. We made 4 of them. Now to begin March Birthday cards.

More Birthday Cards & Projects

This is a new style card for me to make with cupcakes and candles for a 6-year old girl's birthday card! This is called a Center Pop up Step Card by Iced Images. I have made many cards from her tutorials and she does a wonderful job explaining it all. Here is her link to this style card at
This is another February birthday card I made for my daughter's friend, Nelson. It is a step card with the theme of camping/hiking which is his favorite thing to do!
Happy Birthday to Emily and Nelson! I have started making some Easter projects for our booth in Wells, Maine.
Love making these signs for the front door. Whether it says "hello" or "welcome", they are fun to make. This one is a wooden circle that has been painted and added flowers, ribbon and wooden "hello" word with a bird mould from IOD.
I have quite a few corks and thought it would be fun to make an Easter display/bowl (like I did for Valentine's day, see previous post) with the corks that I had left. Added a bunny that I had in my stash and decorated a wooden Easter egg that I have too. I thought it came out pretty cute. This is a great alternative to an Easter basket, right? I am still working on some more projects both wall signs and Easter centerpieces! Check back in a few days to see what I have completed. Thanks for stopping by!

February Birthdays!

Love these pop up double tier cards especially for birthdays, and I love adding a photo! I made 2 of these for a friend's husband and my brother in law who's birthday is at the end of the month. Both of them, have a love affair with their cars! Below is the picture that I made for my brother-in-law. Did I mention that he is turning 70? Happy Birthday Tom & Sandy!
My sisters and I have changed up our booth at Cole's Corner in Wells, Maine and below are some pictures. We have added some of our crafts for Valentine's day which is a week from today!
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
