Baby Announcement

Hello! My project for the day is this cute baby announcement that I made for one of my neighbors. I had kind of a hard time with this one, becuase I wasn't sure which direction to go in. I ended up getting inspiration from another baby card I did for last week's Mojo Monday challenge. I used the Cuddles and Tickles set (retired). I also wrapped mini Hershey bars in some paper I have had for a number of years. I find that I buy lots of paper, and that I like it so much, no project is good enough for it. I am trying to change Hope you like it!

I colored the baby using my Stampin' Up! Stampin' Pastels. It was the first time I have used them. I like the soft colors. I also used my trusty Cricut to make the tag.

Stamps: Cuddles and Tickles, So Very
Paper: Whisper White, Gable Green, (I can't recall where the pink paper is from)
Ink: Basic Black(SU!), Baby Pink (stampcraft)

Mojo Monday #96

Hello! This is my card for Mojo Monday! It took me a lot longer than I planned to get this one done. I was DETERMINED to use the scraps I have laying around from Ava's B-Day projects. The end result is going to be her B-Day card. Thank God she doesn't really pay attention when I am card making! :)

The sketch:

The result:

I am working on making insides to my cards also. After a poll posted on Splitcoast, I think I will be making a point to make insides to all of my cards now.

Thanks for looking!

Favor bags are done!

Well, I finally finished them! I don't know why it took me a week to do these. Usually I can knock a project like this out in a day or two. Ah well. Here are the 'Little Avas' in action!

There are actually 15 bags in total. 5 of each color. I just thought this made a better picture! ;)

And, this is what is in the bags!

What I have been working on...

Well, it has been really busy for me lately, but I have been fitting in a few projects here and there. Right now, I am working on things for my daughter's 5th b-day party! I came across an idea on Splitcoast that I changed up a little bit, and I think they are going to be used on the favor bags:

I call them my 'Little Avas'. Her party is going to have a Luau theme, so these are my tiny versions of her. She is in love with them!

I also made these little guys. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I will find a purpose!

Both of these projects have been really fun to make, once you get past all the cutting and punching! I'm sure I will find many projects to use them for, they are just too cute. Have a great day!! :)

Mojo Monday #95

Hello! This is my card for Mojo Monday! When I saw the sketch for today's challenge:

I immediately thought to use my SU! Animal Stories set, with the matching dsp. I have had this set for about a month, and hadn't used it. I needed a card for a co-worker who just had a baby, and I thought the colors would be perfect for a baby boy!

Birthday Invite

Hi! I am currently in super party planning mode! My daughter, Ava, is turning 5 on July 27th, and we are having a big Luau to celebrate. This was a fun, easy invite to make, and I used the Island Blossom set. (And old set I know, but I love it all the same!) I used my Cricut to make the tag, and a couple of the new In Colors, mixed with one of my old favs, Kiwi Kiss. I think the result is bright, fun, and very tropical!

Paper: Bermuda Bay, Summer Sun, Whisper White, Vellum
Stamps: Island Blossom
Ink: Melon Mambo, Summer Sun, Bermuda Bay, Kiwi Kiss

Have a great day everyone! :)
