A SUPER CUTE RV!!!

Welcome back fellow crafters!! Here's another project I was busy with. This was made for my mom for her Birthday!!! Weird birthday card right!?! Well there's a story that brings it all together!


My mom has decided that she wants to travel!! She's been talking about getting an RV for over a year now and just going everywhere. So I sold my car and bought her an RV!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!! She is just in LOVE with it!! She's been spending time downsizing her belongings and slowly moving herself and her cats into this RV and she has even named it…. Sweet Sue!! How cute!!!


I got this file from Leo & Mary at SVG Cuts. My sister thought it would be super funny to put underwear on the line outside instead of the flags that originally came with the file.



I know it's not a traditional card by any means but it was too perfect!!! Plus the box is going to come in handy for her to put small things in so they don't move around on her while she's driving! She's quickly learning that things need to be put in boxes or Velcro'd down while she's driving.


Since she named her Sweet Sue I thought it appropriate that the license plate say that! What do you think? This file was soo much fun to make and meant a lot to me since my mom is making some big life changes to do this! I worry about her in this thing but she is soo excited that you just can't not think it's the best idea on earth!!!

Hope you enjoy!!!!


I LOVE YOU MOM!!!! Happy Birthday!!!! I KNOW dad would approve!!!

HIP HIP HOORAY!! A CHEERLEADER CARD!!

Welcome back fellow crafters!! It's so nice to be working on my projects and posting again!! Here's a super cute card I made for a very special friend and life coach for her to give to her niece for graduation. Her niece is  the head cheerleader on her squad so I had to do this super cute card! I found it on Pinterest from September Ninth Blog. I fell in LOVE with this card and had to make it!!!!




I just LOVE it!!! It's too cute!!! The cheerleader is from one of my FAVORITE sites SVG Cuts! I just love Leo and Mary's files!! They are so much fun to make!!! The colors of the uniform are actually her school colors too. I used my Silhouette to do the stitches and writing on the front. The pom poms were made with baker's twine and I found the tutorial here. They were SUPER EASY to make!!

Here's the inside of the card.


The friend I made this for is an AMAZING woman who has with her husband whip my butt into shape!!! I call them the Major and the Lieutenant! They run the most amazing outdoor fitness program here in Los Angeles that will give you the most amazing workout!! It's called Bootcamp LA and if you live in Los Angeles you MUST check it out!!! The Major and LT are very passionate about getting people into shape and have helped me so much!! I love you guys!!!!!

Hope you like the card!!

A BEAUTIFUL MOTHER'S DAY CARD!!!

HELLOOOO fellow crafters!!!! I'M BACK!! HEHE!! It has been far too long since my last post!! I'm feeling MUCH better and have missed my crafts and my crafty friends!! I haven't done a whole lot since before Christmas but I have managed to get a few projects in. BTW, I SOOO miss being on the Design Team for Regina at The Cutting Cafe!!! Hopefully I'll be able to join the next round (fingers crossed!)

Anyway, here is the Mother's Day card I made for my mom and my boyfriend's mom. I'm posting it late but never fear....our mom's received in time!! I scrap-lifted this elegant design from the Poetic Artistry blog when I found it on Pinterest.


It was fun making because when I jumped into cardmaking and paper crafting I started with more 3D things and what I consider a bit harder techniques and never really learned the basics. This project really helped me learn some of the basics to card making. However, I still can not figure out how big you are supposed to cut mat's when adding to your cards, or what's really driving me crazy….how do you know how wide and long to make the cool flags that people add to their cards? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!


It's a little hard to tell from the pics but the mat is embossed in this project as well. I used Spellbinders Impressibility's for the embossing and Spellbinders Labels 1 Nestabilities for the labels. I loved learning how to use these but I'm not over the hill about the Impressibility's as you can barely see the embossing. I also used the Stampin' Up eyelet lace border punch. I wasn't able to find Rhinestones the right color so I colored my clear rhinestones with my Copics. I LOVE being able to do that!!! I took a beginners Copic class with Cindy Lawrence and learned all kinds of amazing stuff!!!  Thanks Cindy!!!

Here's the inside of the card.


My mom is seriously the most important person in my life and truly my best friend!! I hope you enjoy this card and if anyone has some tips on the problems I mentioned above, let me know!!!
