Graduation Pop Up Card Front

This week, for our The Cutting Cafe design team project, we got to play with the Assorted Pop Up Cards file.  It comes in two formats, with a single pop up or a triple pop up inside.  I chose the single pop up.  I also combined it with the Grad Hat Shaped Card file.

A Slideshow of Cards and Post-It Note Holders I Recently Made

28 Jan

Hello!  Here is a slideshow of a few cards and some Post It Note holders that I made recently.  I did a video of the note holders but deleted it by mistake.  I make a lot of cards and thought a slide show would work this time.  Thanks for stopping by and watching!

Christmas Cards for a Friend

17 Dec

Hello!  I just wanted to pop in and share some Christmas Cards I made for my friend’s mom.  I used some Anna Griffin  and Spellbinders products to make them and they turned out great!

I used the Spellbinders Mystical Embrace Die to make this one.

This week my wonderful mother turned 70 years young!  Happy Birthday Mom!  Here is the card I made for her…

And here is the video on it…

We had a wonderful party and I took on a project.  My mother has always loved grandfather clocks.  She has a full-sized one that we have had forever.  I decided to make one for her special birthday.  It was an undertaking, but I got it done…

I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!  She loved it.  Everyone at the party loved it.  I love it.  I used a Paper Phenomen/Kathy Orta tutorial.  For the most part it was great but there were a few things left off the cutting guide which meant I had to go back and cut more chipboard.  I had to make a couple other adjustments and added some added support in places, but it worked out.  I will warn you, picture overload is coming.  It was a bit difficult to photograph and film, so I hope you can get the just of it.  In person, it is absolutely gorgeous.  To find out the materials I used, please watch the video I will have at the end of the post.  Now for the photos…
