I wish my image quality was better but my camera just isn't working how I would like it. This card was made for a graduate this year and I was very proud of my creative endeavor so I thought I would share it. I went for a simple classic look and incorporated the school colors into the design. I used my SCAL software to make the design and found the original image here. I added the diploma as a dimensional piece and used my Zots adhesive dots to hold down the paper. I put a brad to hold the tassel as well. Hope you enjoy it!
So I was trying to get into the card making groove but it was a pretty busy week. I finally got a moment to post my project. I decided to do some something with my SU flower builder punch. I think I liked the muted colors but I am not sure about it. I used the SU Sunburst sayings stamp set for the sentiment.

So after I found that it was a matter of deciding what else I could come up with below are my two creations. Let me know what you think!
I embossed both cards using my Sizzix Texture Boutique. I chose different style crosses to make each card unique. I also changed the size of my items on the second car. I really thought it was a great idea and really represented the true meaning of their …
It seems like every month I look at my calender and see another birthday coming up. This post is going to showcase the cards that I made for a few of my girls. Hope you enjoy them.
I really love the Cricut cartridge's Once Upon a Princess and Sweet Treats. I utilized both of these in my cards. I was surprised at what I made.
The first card is for my niece who really is my little princess. She is turning six. She likes to see herself in any card that I make for her no matter what it's for. So I decided that I would try to make her a princess and I cut all the pieces for her out and realized that the sizing of the paper dolls don't really mat up to the separate pieces! I had to manipulate them a bit to get them all to fit together cohesively. At that point she was complete but I thought she needed something more to fill in the card. She has two older brothers and I thought it would be cute to incorporate them into the card as well so I made the little frog princes. Now that…
