Happy Birthday, Mom!

My mom's birthday is coming up in just a few days, so I made this card for her. I used My Mind's Eye Bella Bella papers and a MME die cut, a Tim Holtz stamp, and Prima flowers. I sprayed the white and pink die cut with Tattered Angels Wheatfield Glimmer Mist to give it an aged look to match the MME papers. Love glimmer mist!!
Thanks for looking!

Don't You Love Pink Elephants?

Day two of my baby girl card-making extravaganza! I'm on a roll now!! I really am having a blast making cards for baby girls. Not sure I'll be able to stop. This elephant card and Wednesday's Pink Birdie card used mostly Basic Grey products and a little K & Company.
Thanks again for looking! Have a great weekend!

Precious Little Ones

We have several friends who have either just had a baby, are soon to have a baby, or are brand new grandparents, so I thought I would create a few baby cards to welcome these little ones. I had so much fun creating this sweet baby girl card this morning. I just wish I had more time to create like this!
Just click on the photo to get a close up of the details. Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!

So Easy Black & White Frames!

I love how fast and easy these altered picture frames are to make! These are the $1.00 frames from Michaels. I painted the frames white, then placed them face down on the back of my Creative Memories paper and traced the outline of the frame and the opening. I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the frame. When it was completely dry, I inked all the edges with black chalk ink.
For the flower on the first frame, I cut a strip of CM paper about 1" wide x 12" long. Then I trimmed one long edge with scalloped scissors, inked the edges, folded it fanfold style, then formed it in a circle. I used a glue gun to hold it together. The black crystal swirls are from Zva Creative. Isn't my cousin's sweet little girl Emma beautiful?! I love the elegance of this second frame. Absolutely beautiful paper! For this frame I just added some sheer black ribbon and a silver button to finish it off. Thanks for looking!
