Birthday card for my niece

Birthday card for my niece
This is from last year & from the Cricut Art Nouveau cartridge.  I just love that cart!  Both the sentiment on the front & the image on the inside top are from it.  I cut a label for underneath the front sentiment & distressed the edges with the Zutter Distrezz-It-All & then inked the edges. The paper is from Mirabelle by The [...]

Retirement card with attached CD

Retirement card with attached CD
A friend of ours retired last year. I compiled a CD of retirement songs & made a card that was attached to the box by using the Zutter Bind-It-All. I pretty much finished this five minutes before walking out the door to the retirement party, so this is the only photo I got of it. I need to make another one for someone else, so will try to [...]

Tissue box covers & rolled/quill...

I like these as small gifts.  Something you can give someone & they won’t feel obligated to give something in return.  Plus, it’s something if they don’t like, they can always re-gift it.

The butterfly was cut on the Silhouette Cameo, using a cut from SilhouetteOnline. The cattails on the inside were cut on the Cricut using the Art Nouveau cartridge. The font is JasmineUPC. To create the [...]

Piano birthday card – Cricut Qu...

I made this a few months ago for a good friend who has a grand piano in her home. The sentiment was printed on my computer printer. The piano, keyboard & notes are Cricut cuts & I used black sparkle paper.  

Momism book

Momism-book-_0000
I compiled this booklet last year. After my mother passed away, I had this insatiable need to make something physical that would either remind people of her or would acquaint people with her.  For several months, I fought with this need, since I really didn’t know what I wanted to make or how to make it.  I just knew I needed [...]
