Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog!
Here is my missing you card.

I used my Cuttlebug for the background paper 
(cut at 3 7/8" x 5 3/8")
I embossed the same pattern in yellow 
and cut out one star for the embellishment.
While digging in my scrap box I found the red piece of cardstock 
already "crinkled" (using SU tool) and cut it to 3 7/8" by 1 3/4".  
The card base and all of the white edges of cardstock were inked in black. The stamp is a dollar find from Michael's. I added the yellow star brads and white Puffy paint to finish off the card.
Thank you for hopping along today. -Yvette (Cre8tiveVet)

The next stop on the Hop is: HOLLY @

Die Cuttin Diva's May 24th Challenge

Hi All! It's Tuesday and time for another Die Cuttin Diva challenge.
This week we were challenged to make a "celebrations" card. I used my Sweet Treats cartridge to cut out the card shape and added the layers using the other features of the same cart. Here it is:

My nephew is turning 3 this Friday so I made this card for him.
I was inspired from last week's masculine card challenge.
Thanks for visiting and I look forward to seeing your project for this week's challenge.

Wedding Bells are Ringing!

Today we are attending a wedding. This is the card I made for the Bride and groom.
I usually don't make 9"x4.5" cards but I love how this turned out.

I also decorated the inside of the card.

Graduation Time!

We have another Graduate in the Family!
My best friend's brother is getting his masters from Cal State Fullerton. 
This is the card I made for him: 
The "banner" was a rosette that I got cre8tive with.
I layered the blue to make it look like a window swag. I really like how it turned out.

I used one of the stickers that came on his announcement to embellish the front of the card.

I am inspired to try this banner/swag technique for a 4th of July themed card.
I think the red, white and blue will be prefect. I'll add that to my project list. :)
Thanks for visiting! -Yvette

Die Cuttin Divas

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!

Graduation Time!

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!

Fairy cards

Here are a few cards I made using my new InkaDinkaDoo Fairy stamps.
I created this card for my SIL's birthday. The sentiments were made using word.

My sister inspired me to use speciality yarn on my card.

I am entering these into 365 Cards Day 65 challenge, and Divas by Design 1st Challenge.

Race for a Cure!

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.

Happy Birthday!

Here is another fun fold for a birthday card.

Save the Date Books

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.
I am entering these books in the Divas by Design first challenge.

Softball team gifts

 This past weekend was the end of My husband's duty as coach of our niece's 6 and under softball team. I wanted to make something for each of the girls on his team.
I bought these frames from Michael's for a dollar each and painted them their team color. I designed and cut everything out using my Gypsy and Cricut.
I also made three more for the assistant coaches and the team mom.
I hope you enjoy them.
