Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge!

Planes, trains, and automobiles..... was the theme for this weeks Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge.
My brother's birthday was June 15th and I made this card for him.
I used the Summer vacation solutions cartridge for the car, street sign, and surfboard. The stamp on the front of the card is a dollar find from Michael's. So is the Happy Birthday stamp on the inside of the card. The numbers are from a calendar set from Inkadinkado. I used my Cuttlebug for the blue background piece.
My Brother had just returned home from Triple bypass surgery the day before his birthday. Yup! He's only 42 years old and the best birthday present is that he is here to celebrate with us.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter this week's challenge!

The Sweetest Thing Sketch Challenge

Ok So this will be the last post for today. I told you I had a lot of craft time this weekend. Especially for sketch challenges. Here is another great one from The Sweetest Thing - Sweet Sunday Sketch.

I totally forget where I got this Digital image and sentiment but I love How the card turned out. I used the embossing folder "mosaic" to replicate the brick of a fire house.
Thanks for checking out my blog!

Card Postitoning Systems Sketch Challenge!

I had the best weekend! I was able to create so may cards and projects.
Here is another card I made using the sketch over at Card Positioning Systems.

The digital image is from Duntin Pike. I love his images! I also used the embossing folders from Cuttlebug. Such a simple sketch but sometimes the hardest to design.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge

I am very into sketches this week. While roaming the blog world I found Sunday Sketch & Stamp Blog and was inspired by this sketch.

Since I didn't make a square card I had to change the layout slightly.
My husband loves the puppy on this card. I have to thanks Sandy Allnock at OWH for the free digi and sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Love card!

I have never been one for the vintage look but I recently made a paper bag album with the vintage theme so I thought I would try a card too.
I am entering this card in to OWH midweek throwdown challenge... LOVE YOU!

The paper is from the Old World stack, the flowers are from a wedding kit, I used a regular heart doillie that I aged with black and sepia ink and the embellishment is a sticker that I have had forever. Oh, the pearls my sister gave me and the rhinestones are from Michael's.

Thanks for visiting! -Yvette

Clipboard makeover

I am in an altered state of mind and am loving it!
Here is a clipboard that I altered. I want to seal the paper so that it will be permanent. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure if I want to add anything else to the clipboard. This is the first one that I have decorated.

Blogoversary Blog Hop Today!!!

Today we celebrate the 1st blogoversary of my sister's blog. She has done so many wonderful cards, LO, and other projects this year. I can't thank her enough for introducing me to the blog world and showing me how to become a better paper crafter.

If you arrived here from Sarah -  then you are in the right place. If you just happened by my blog please go to and start the hop from the beginning.

The project I made for her blog hop is a paper bag album. I had never made one of these before and was excited to see what I could cre8. Here it is! The pictures do not do it justice.

Each bag holds two inserts and I have decorated them to match the pages they are sandwiched between.

My vision for this album is to put all of the birthday pictures that I can find of my twin and I and display them in this birthday album. I just need to track down more pictures.

I would love for you to leave me some comments on how I can improve on this project. This is the first time I have made a paper bag album and think I will make a few more. They are so easy and make great gifts.

Now for the blog candy!!!
I am putting together a grab bag of stickers, embellishments, rhinestones, and some other fun stuff. All you have to do is follow my blog and leave me a comment. Don't forget to include an e-mail address so I can get a hold of you when you win. Thanks for Hopping along.

Here is the line up:

Here is a close up of the heart. I used glossy accents on it.

Now go and visit Emma. She has a great sneek peak for you!

Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge!

For this week's challenge we were asked to take a Christmas die and use it for a non christmas card.
I grabbed my Joys of the Season cartridge and started flipping through it. These trees caught my eye.
Here is a close up of the background paper and die cuts:

I love the layers. And when you put three of anything on a card it looks great!
Now go and get your christmas carts out, head on over to Die Cuttin' Diva's, and get cre8tive!!!
