Graduation Card

I scraplifted this from a magazine. This is a graduation card shaped as a hat. I cut a square black card with a black fabric brad with an old tassel attached. I attached a round strip of black paper on the bottom for the full effect. This is going to be a graduation card for my baby brother Pat who is graduating college in May!! Woo hoo!

Mother's Day trinket box!

I love decorating tins!! This was super easy to make. I cut circles and distressed them and topped it off with a handmade fanned center piece and an antique button. I plan to give this to my mom for mother's day!

3 Little Houses..

I used my new little quickutz house dies. journaling tag, and zig zag edges. I used the left over vintage book pages and I chalked the edges to also give a vintage feel. I added ribbon on the side as well as on the tag.

Vintage "Hi" Card

This card was made using my new wavy edge qk dies! I layered waves on the bottom of the card as well as added a corner wavy piece. I cut a qk button out of my left over vintage book pages and added ribbon. I used my chestnut roan cat eye chalk to antique the edges. I added antique buttons and ribbon. I created the "Hi" from my foam stamps and brown paint.

Spring is in the Air!

I made this card using my new quickutz dies. I hit an amazing scrapbook sale and picked up these little cuties. I used eyelet paper for the background and purple paper to back it. I had fun dressing up my flowers with buttons and dragonfly with sparkles and patterned vellum paper. I used the moxie mini font for the "hi".

Party Favors!

Get together with the girls??? Party favors are a must! I used my flirt quickutz gift set to creat the lipstick, mirror makeup compact, flower, and name on the place card. I created the purse with my cricut. I used a reflective mirror paper to create the mirrow and accents on the lipstick. I used my Marth Stewart scallop edge punch on the place card and chalked it to match. Very easy and quick!!
