Welcome to my corner!

Hello everyone! I love pretty paper and making things such as mini albums, cards and scrapbooks. I love sharing my papercrafting obsession with others.

A Few of My Favorite Projects Part 2

I didn't post yesterday because I couldn't tear myself away from the Korean drama I was watching.  Time flew by and before I knew it, the day was over.

Here is a simple, yet elegant card.  Somehow this card made itself.  I used the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder and a stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  I added some Stardust Stickles to the trees and finished it off with a black and white polka dotted bow that I got from Walmart.

Next is a card I made for a baby shower last August.  I really had fun with this one.  I used the DCWV All About Boys Stack and chose the paper with the circus theme for the mat.  I cut out the lion image from the page and made a shaker using the plastic that envelopes new Cricut cartridges.

Here's a better picture of the glitter in the shaker card.  I had to shake it a little since all the glitter settled to the bottom of the window.

And finally the inside of the card:

I took this picture before I stamped CONGRATULATIONS! inside.  I added a sticker from the paper stack for a finishing touch.  I'm addicted to adding stickers or cutouts on the inside bottom right of my cards. I don't know why I didn't think to snap a photo of the card AFTER I finished adding the sentiment.  I suppose it was because I was in a rush to get it done since I had to leave my house early enough to find the house where the shower was being hosted.

I made the slider card below for a 3-year old using the same paper stack.  I loved the black background with all the robots and felt the Cricut Robotz cartridge was in order.  My sister-in-law and I worked on this one together.  I used googly eyes on the robot's face since I thought it looked better than the ones that are cut out on the Cricut.

And here is it once it's opened:

And finally, here's an invitation I made for a little girls' tea party at spring last year.  I used the Cricut cartridge, A Child's Year, for the cutouts on the front and Wildcard for the actual card base.  I used the Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder and punched two holes with my Crop-A-Dile so that I could use a ribbon to tie the card shut.  Invitation details were printed on the computer on the Large Ovals Nestabilities dies.  You can see it peeking out from behind the opening.

There will be more cards from the past year in my next post.


  1. really cute cards.love the stardust on the trees.so simple and cute.my favorite black and white polk a dots.a childs year is one of my fav carts it doesnt need any layering.very cute invites love the embossing.tfs

  2. That invite was one of those strike of inspiration kind of thing. Somehow if there's a deadline coming up to get a card done I can whip up a better one than the kind I have to think about first. I'm sure you know how that is, LOL! I wish I could have put some lettering at the top but I couldn't come up with anything clever.
