Hello everyone! I am so excited to announce that I am a new member of the Design Team over at Die Cuttin' Diva's. This weeks challenge was to make a Masculine card. I immediately thought of my husband's Harley.
I used my "Going Places" cart for the motorcycle and "Indie Art" cart for the flames.
The stamp is from Inkadinado.
I am so excited to be a part of the DT. I look forward to all of your projects!
It's that time of year again. Graduations are upon us! My Creative Time's Emma challenged us to create a card using the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge and the color blue. I immediately thought of my Best friend, Suzanne. She is graduating with a masters from UCLA this June. Here is her card:
I decided to use the backpack from the Doodlecharms cart. I added the UCLA using the Base Camp cart. The binder paper was made using colored pencils and the stamps are from the "Mom you ROCK" set from Emma at My Creative Time. I lucked out that UCLA's school colors are BLUE and yellow in order to meet the color requirement for Emma's challenge. I had a great time making the paper rosette ribbon. I think it adds balance to the card.
My Best friend will see this card before she receives it because she follows my blog. I hope she likes it and will "act" surprised when she opens it in a few weeks. Congrats to all of her hard work. It has been a tough road but one well paved. Great job Suzanne!
Today was a very special day for my friends and I. We walked in the Revlon Run/Walk for Breast cancer research for the 10th year in a row.
Start line and Hallie Berry.
My Best friend and I.
On the left is the sign I wore on my back. Every year I walk for my 2 moms. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was pregnant with my twin sister and I. She fought hard but lost her battle 28 years ago when we were 7 years old. My best friend's mom has "adopted" us as her daughters and was also diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago. We walk for her as well.
When I got home I was surprised to find My Creative Time's "Race for a Cure" stamp set in my mail box. My dear twin sister knew I really wanted the set and bought it for me.
Even though I have been up since 4am I had to make a card using this wonderful stamp set!
(it's almost midnight)
Thank you Yvonne! and Emma, from My Creative Time!
I can't wait to scrapbook this year's event and add it to my Run/walk album.
I was inspired to make these books when I participated in a blog hop with Simply Scrapping Crafts. One of the hoppers, Cindy, Made "Birthday Books" I decided to change the name to "Save the Date book" since anniversaries and other special dates can be logged in the books.
I used my binding machine and cut down the coils to fit the books. I also kept the pattern on the outside of the pocket pages so the paper stands out. This makes the month card stand out. I had so much fun making these that I think I need to make some more.
