Let's meet up for adult beverages!


Good Morning!!

Melisa from Melisa's Crafty Creations here with you today.  I don't know about you but it's hard to find time to go out with my girlfriends.  Sometimes it's our schedules that are keeping us from getting together, other times it's not being able to find a babysitter for our kids.  So I thought I would make a card to send to her so we can plan a girls night out soon.   


The card base is made using the Scalloped Circles Cutting File.  The patterned paper was cut using the Doilies Cutting File.  I selected the image, then I selected "Release Compound Path".  After that I moved my main image and deleted the rest of the inside of the shape.   The sentiment shape is from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting File.  The twine is Seaweed from The Twinery.


The Margarita is from the NEW Happy Hour Cutting File.  I used Glossy accents on the lime, stem of the margarita glass as well as the salt on the rim.  I wanted salt to have some texture to it so I let it dry a little bit and then took a needle and started poking the salt with the needle.  I did that while blowing on it to help get it to dry faster.  You could also use glitter for the salt but I end up making a huge mess when I use glitter.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Some Days Simply Require stamp set.  


Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day!!

3 Girl JAM Guest Designer



Happy Saturday!!

Today I am Guest Designing over at 3 Girl JAM.  When I saw the white ribbon from the Red & White Ribbon Bundle I knew it would be perfect for my layout.  I have been wanting to scrapbook this picture of my oldest son Matthew for a long now and when I saw this bunny from the Forest Critter's Cutting File I knew it would be perfect to use.  


The title is from one of my Quickutz dies.  The name of the font is "Holiday"


The bunny from the Forest Critter's Cutting File from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. The egg is from the Hoppy Easter Cutting File.  



Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great weekend.

The ribbon I used is from the Pink & White Bundle from 3 Girl JAM.  

Hey you!




Good Morning!

Today is my day to post over on the Action Wobbles blog.  I have a cute little card to share with you.  



I used the Scalloped Circles Cutting File for my card base.  The Hedgehog is from the Forest Critters Cutting File.  The clouds are from the Patriotic Balloon Cutting File.   The grass is from the Flower Assortment Cutting File.  I just have to say the Flower Assortment Cutting file is my new favorite cutting file.  I love all the different possibilities for flowers.  All the cutting files are from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.

I used the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder from Stampin Up for my background.  I bought it from my friend Kathy.  You can find the link to her store HERE.

The sentiment is from the Sweet Shop Stamp "Foxy" stamp set.
