I have also made a video tutorial to go along with it!

Episode 14: Graduation Money Card

Hi Everbody!

My project for today is a graduation card. I got the inspiration (idea) for this card from Dawn Griffith. She made a Money holder card awhile ago, and I was perusing her Youtube channel, and I came across it. I thought it would be perfect to use as a Graduation card, because we all know that despite our great efforts of creativity, what the kid really wants is the money inside, lol.

The grad stamp I used is from Studio 112. I found it in the dollar bin at JoAnn's. I cut it out, glitter embossed it, and popped it up on a few dimensionals. I also used my poorly neglected Cicut, and cut out some stars using the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Have a FANTASTIC day! :)

Tri-Shutter Birthday Card

Hi Everybody!

I posted a while back that I was attempting a tri-shutter card. Well, I did it, took pics of it, and forgot to post about it!

I ended up making the card for my daughter's teacher. It was difficult for me to get all the dimensions right for the patterned paper, (I SUCK at measurements), but once I did, putting it together was easy and fun!

I am trying to get ideas for doing another one. Would you guys like me to do a video?

Believe it or not, this card is an A2 (4 1/4x5 1/2)!

If you have any other questions, please let me know! Have a GREAT day! :)

Mojo Monday 185

Hi Everbody!

Today's project is a Mojo Monday sketch! For this card, I used a couple of the elements I used for last week's card. (I just LOVE that background stamp!) I will be honest, and say that I kind of struggled with this sketch. I created a card yesterday that I liked, but felt was missing something. So, I slept on it, and woke up with a few new ideas! I pulled out all the big guns of papercrafting: tearing, ribbon scrunching, embossing, sponging, you name it, it's on this card! LOL! After all of that, I am pretty pleased with the end result. I just wish I could take better pictures, becuase it look SO much better in person!

Well, enjoy anyway, and have a FANTASTIC day! :)

Today, I am sharing a mini set that I was inspired to create late last night. I had these scraps floating around, and thought, 'Let's use them!' I love the brightness, and find that I am easily inspired when I am working with fun colors! Enjoy!

I hope you have a fantastic Sunday! :)

Mojo Monday- Thinking of You

Hi Everybody!!

It's the first Mojo Monday I have participated in, in quite awhile! I still have mixed feelings about the end result, but, it's done I suppose! For some reason, I just had a hard time getting 'it' together today, so the fact that I got it finished is an accomplishment all on it's own, lol!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT day!

Gift Tags!

Hi Everybody!

Today, I am sharing some gift tags I made. (slowly using up those scraps!) If you haven't gotten your tags from me yet, I'm sorry! They are coming! I put them on the table by the door to get mailed, and my cat must have knocked them off, and they ended up behind it. I thought one of the kids put them in the mail them for me. (should have known better!) As always, if you have any questions, please let me know, Enjoy!

Notecard Make-Over

Hi Everybody!

The project that I'm sharing today is one I did awhile ago. I'm not sure if I posted this already, I don't think I did.... Anyway, it's a set of cards I made using some notecards I picked up in the Target Dollar Spot. I added some ribbon, designer paper, and other embellishments, and came up with this:

Hope you like it! If you have any questions, please let me know. I also welcome all comments on how fabulous you think my work is. ;)
