Just one more.....

before the Cuttlebug Wednesday Inspiration. I just had to share a few more layouts I finished up recently.

I had fun with some rhinestones on this one...I just couldn't resist the BLING...ha!! I just love this picture of our little star.

Finally getting to scrapping my little ones First that he is almost 3. That is not bad. I have so many pictures and albums that are so far back but, these are a little easier since it is more current. Plus how fun is it to scrap such cute baby pics...

Come back tomorrow to join me for the Cuttlebug Inspiration. See ya! Jenn

Cuttlebug be Inspired # 19

Today's challenge is to emboss on acetate! Well, I love clear cards and embossing on them just adds to the fun! There are so many great ideas that I had for this one. I finally settled on this for today's inspiration challenge. I hope you stop by Cuttlebug Challenge to see what the rest of the design team came up with today!! There is a lot of inspiration there! If you haven't been by you can start today by visiting this link is a pic of the inside as well, I love to finish the inside of my cards...I think it just adds a little more to the presentation of your message. Plus it is a great way to hide the backs of brads or other items you used on the front of your card. Hope you gained some inspiration for today and that you will visit me and the rest of the team on Cuttlebug Challenge too.
Till next time Happy Craftin'!

Cuttlebug be Inspired # 17

Welcome to another Cuttlebug Challenge. Today's challenge is all about Love....Awwhh! Love is in the air..right??

Well, I created this card using my Cuttlebug Divine swirl embossing folder on the actual card base. I used some My minds eye (mme) paper for the base and also cut a few flowers from it for decoration. A strip of green gingham with scalloped edges. A few flower brads and a white piece of cardstock stamped with a sweet phrase.

On the inside I embellished a bit with some more green gingham, some white cardstock scalloped on each end and a flower punched in a heart shape from the mme paper.

Now go create yourself some LOVE cards for that special someone in your life. For more inspirations from this weeks challenge go to the Cuttlebug challenge blog here.

Hope to see you again real soon and share some projects you have created with me too.

Till next time...Happy Craftin'!!

P.S. Don't forget to add me to your bookmarks or join my blog so you can get my latest updates, thanks.

Just Tinkering....

Just messing around with some scraps I had left over from a few layouts. I thought I would share a Thank you card I created. I think it is a little funky..hopefully in a good way. Tell me what you think. Of course I had to include a butterfly, one of my favorite things.

Don't forget to come by on Wednesday to check out my project for the Be inspired challenge over at Cuttlebug Challenge!
