Customized gifts, cards, and mini albums. This blog represents a series of projects,styles,tutorials, and digital files. My passion is to make Art with Encouragement. You can find me on Facebook and Youtube sharing ideas and tutorials, as well as products I love to use.
This is what I made for my son's teachers on behalf of the class. The inside of the card had room for a gift card to slide right in. I made the pocket with the Gypsy, and used Wild Card for the card and envelope, plus added a little scalloped circle to the envelope using Mini Monograms. I laced a ribbon through the card and tied a bow on top, distressed the white paper and all edged with Tim Holtz distress ink and added little pearls. The sentiment was computer generated. TFL!
This is a little tag I made as part of a "Thank you" I am sending to my mother. I am also entering it into the BBTB2 challenge for this week. It is 5" tall from the TBBM cart, and the flourishes and corner accent are from Gypsy Wanderings. The flowers and twig are from Gypsy Wanderings as well, cut at 1.47" tall. The sentiment is from Wild Card cut at 3" wide. Some of the paper was from the Mariposa collection and I added a little more glitter to match the words to it. I also cut two layers of the flowers to make them dimensional and put some "bling" in the centers. The dragonfly is from Kate's paperie. TFL!
My Mother's day gifts included two Cricut Cartridges my hubby ordered from Scrapbookpal.com. I am really happy with them and they arrived just in time for him to present them to me on Mother's day. I have ordered from them in the past and highly recommend them for competitive prices and fast shipping!
I made this card for my MIL. She is so sweet and generous and I could never repay her for everything she's done for me. Anywho, she sent me an animal print ensemble for my Birthday/Mother's day so I thought the Zebra was fitting on the thank-you card. I cut the shadow from Provo Craft paper, used Paper Studio paper for the Zebra and little "tag", and embellished with a swirly stamp, black sequins and pearl. Then added a little ribbon just to make it more girly. TFL!
Ok, so here's another Thank you card with the little Panda from CAC. I cut the bowl a little larger to fit a stamp, and then decided I would write the sentiment myself. Pardon the pun, but it was just begging for it! I love this panda! The card is from DCWV and it is glittery, the rest of the papers are from The Paper Studio (found at HL). They cut amazingly well on the Cricut, and the colors are nice and saturated. We like!
I got this cart for Mother's day as a gift from my hubby and kids, and decided to make a thank you card with the Monster card. I love that the envelopes all have their own little twist, so I think this cart is great because of that. Also, included are some universal envelopes meant to fit a variety of cards!! Bonus! It was super easy to make. The important thing here is that you have to make the envelope 1st. I really think the Gypsy came in handy because I'm not sure it would've been as easy to use without the G. TFL!
I got around to making these last night for the NSD challenge from My Pink Stamper. One challenge was to use scraps, and another was to use your least favorite cart. I used scraps for the page with the little puppy in the grass titled: "That's what little boys are made of". On other layout I used Animal Kingdom for my least favorite. This cart is a little tricky to use and some of the animals are IMO just plain ugly. I used the head of a horse, and horse border welded to the photo frames. Good thing the horse in the pic was cute!
