Thinking of You Card Swap

These are the cards I made for a card swap.

????????

I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge for the tulips and the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for the matt.  Embossed the matts with Cuttlebug Divine Swirl or Swiss Dots embossing folders.  Then added some stickles glitter to the tulips and adhesive pearl dots for the finishing touches.

For the inside of the card I used a stamp from Hot off the Press and added another tulip cut.

I am happy with the way they turned out.  My husband bought me the new Cricut Explore Air for our anniversary so I used Cricut Design space to create the cards.  I have to say that I am impressed with it.  I wasn’t sure that I would like having to be connected to the internet, but having all the cutting files in a directory, easy to access, makes up for the inconvenience of the internet.  Love being able to view all of the images.

The Cake Cutting

My daughter, Sarah, celebrated her 2nd wedding anniversary in June.  We are still working on her wedding pictures.  We are on album #3.

This is the layout she and I worked on together and finally finished.

The Cake Cutting

I don’t usually do this kind of block layout, but I think it turned out nicely.

 

Butterfly Kisses

This is the layout sketch for week 2 of Last Scrapper Standing.  There are 9 of us still going after week 1.

We needed to include at least 3 of the following:

Lace

Embossing

Butterfly

Ribbon

Mists

Flower

Stick Pin

This is my layout.  I had so much fun making this.  I just love the bright colors and the flower paper.  I used embossing on the mat, butterflies, ribbon across the bottom half, and a flower in the girl’s hat besides the flower paper.

And of course I finished up by adding a second page.

When we were planning on stopping at the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory, my daughter Lucy was not impressed.  For some reason she was afraid of butterflies.  As you can see, by the end of the visit, butterflies were no longer scary.  Grandma helped her get over her fear.
