Wish Big Birthday ~ Card!

 
Happy Friday!  Can you believe that today is the last day of November?  I certainly can't!  And Christmas is just around the corner!!!!  Yay!!!! This year has flown by for me! 
 
Today I wanted to share a card I made for my friend's birthday.  I used only dies for this card, I promise I haven't given up on my Cricut!  But I'm so in love with the lastest release from My Creative time!

Do you ever think after you've made something, that maybe you should have done something different?  Well, I think I should have turned the "all around birthday" stamp so you could read "birthday", even though I tilted it on purpose.

 
recipe:
 
Paper:
Papertrey Ink
Echo Park
 
Extras
Ribbon
Ink
 
I'm also entering this in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #63!
 
I'll be back Monday for
 
 
 
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
 
Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Man Style!

Hi my paper lovin' friends!  I feel like I really haven't been around much.  We went out of town last week to the Happiest Place on Earth!  Well let me tell you...I think the whole world was there!  There were WAY TOO MANY people!  We still managed to have fun! 
 
 
Ok, enough of me :)  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my FIL's birthday!  I wanted it to me fun and colorful, yet masculine.  I think I achieved it!
 


 
I know I haven't used my cricut lately.  I promise to dust if off and create something with it soon!  lol!

 
recipe:
Fun Pockets (pocket die, birthday sentiment)
Whimsical Calendar (square stamp)
Vintage Stitched Label Die (label and banner for flags)
 
Papertrey Ink card stock
Cuttlebug Herringbone Embossing Folder 
 
Enjoy!

Jinger Adams ~ Birthday Card!

 
 
Hi Everyone happy Monday!  I hope you've all recovered from your holiday!  Today I get to take over Jinger Adams blog and show you something I've created with her Gypsy Queen paper and trims!  I'm so excited to be able to share with you a card I made for my sister in law for her birthday!  I made it a monogram card for her!
 
 
To create my card I used my Cricut to cut the "L", frame, and oval!  Using Jinger's paper made it easy to coordinate all the patterns!
 
 
I used my Moroccan Cuttlebug folder for the embossing, and a coordinating stamp and die.  Jinger Adams feathers and gold trim just adds to the beauty!
 
 
 
Recipe:
Sophisticated Cricut Cartridge
oval cut at 3.53 x 5.69
L cut at 2.51 x 3.71
frame cut at 2.51 x 3.71
Jinger Adams ~ Gypsy Queen paper and trims
My Creative Time ~ Vintage Stitched Dies, Vintage Sentiment Stamps
Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ Thin black hemp, Cream Seam Binding Ribbon, Button
Cuttlebug Moroccan folder

Jinger Adams Free Printable Banner!

 Happy Monday paper lovers!  I know you've heard that Jinger Adams has a new paper and embellishment line!  But have you heard that she also has FREE Printable in here online store?  Well she does and they are so CUTE!!!  Katie from Crafting with Katie and I are both showing you different ways to use these fabbie printables!  So make sure to see what she came up with too!
 
 
This banner  took me less than 30 minutes to complete!  So you could easily whip one out for your Thanksgiving Day Celebration!

 
I added a punched border to each of the pennants!  And on the ones with the acorns, I printed 6 and cut out three of the acorns to pop them up.  I also used My Creative Time leaf dies with Jinger's Gypsy Queen Collection!  Oh and the pine cones are made with My Creative Time Rolled Flower Die.  You can click here to see a video on how to make them!



 
I inked the leaves and acorn, and added some gold thin hemp for more texture!  The last thing I did was to string the pennants on thick hemp!
