Patchwork *Just Because* Card

Good afternoon everyone!  I'm back with another card.

The approx. size is 6.25" x 4.5"

First I cut out 12 - 1.5" squares of designer paper, inked the edges and stuck them onto a piece of white card stock.  I then used my Spellbinders scalloped rectangle die to cut the shape.  Next I did the faux stitching around the edge of each square and added the ribbon.  I then layered it onto white, then pink card stock.  Next I added the buttons.  

Here's the paper I used.  I believe I found this at Walmart.

Here's the inside

I used the piece that was left over from the die, inked all the edges and rounded the corners.  I then cut two more of the same shape and added them to the centre.  

I made a matching envelope using my envelope punch board.

This was the inspiration for this card. I found it here.

Isn't it beautiful, I love this lady's work!

Gotta run now, it's suppertime already.
Thanks for dropping in!

Grad 2015!

Hello there!

It's that time of year again - high school graduation that is.
Here's 3 cards that I made today.  They are all for boys, so tried to make them masculine.  The size is 4" x 7" and I made envelopes to match with my envelope punch board.  The grad caps are made following a you tube tutorial - here.
Hope you like them!

The inside.  
I draw lines with a soft pencil and ruler to help me keep my writing straight, it works well for me.  

Thats all for this year's grad cards.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time....

Onesie Favours!

Morning Friends!
My son & his wife are expecting their second child in the fall.  They are having a gender reveal party next week and I've been busy making favours for it.
I cut the onesies out with my Cricut *Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2* cartridge, then embossed & decorated them.

There are 52 of them.

I think the black & white ones are my favourites

Here you can see the little box that holds the goodies.

The back.


I also have a card to show you.  
I've been playing with my dies more lately, and here's what I came up with...

Thats all for now,  hope you have a lovely day!
