Wall Hanging for Great Granddaughter

Been working on this project for several months.  Most of the designing was done in my head until I got some mojo back.  Took a week to pick out the background paper and finally found the cartridge I needed (Straight from the Nest).  Once I picked out the paper (Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl), it sat on my work table for about a month.  Just before Christmas I won the sweetest bid on e-Bay and scored the Fontopia cartridge.  This is one awesome cartridge.  Can't wait to try out the crest and card feature.  With Fontopia I cut out the banner and Elise's name.  This sat on the background paper for about a week before I cut out the branch and birdie using Bazzill Bascis Paper/Dotted Swiss.  Then I went to M's and scored the most righteous tie-tyed stack (DCWV -- the tie-dyed stack).  Once I got the stack home, I spent the next 2 days working on the layout.  Changed the paper out that I had used on the prototype to the tie-tyed and it all just came together.

So here it is!  What do you think?

Trying to Get Back in the Swing of It

 
 
 
 
OMG! It's been a year since I've posted. So let's get going with some really simple Christmas cards using the Cricut "Inspired Heart" cartridge. Not sure this is the way they'll stay but I'm having a hard time coming up with what to do with them. Any suggestions?
 
 
 
 
Black faux velvet - bought at JoAnn

Black Glitter cardstock - from stash


 
Standard black textured card stock from Paper Studio
 
Used the following:
 
For the card base -- DavidTutera's A2 Cards in cream
 
For the mat I used black scraps from my stash, some are basic textured card stock, some faux velvet and I had two 12x12 sheets of black glitter all cut at 5 1/4" x 4".
 
The cuts were doing using gold sheets from DCWV Mattalic Stack (cut at 3" or a little larger on some)
 
For the star I used some bling from Michales

Speedy Recovery Froggie

A very dear friend's husband is recovering from a heart attack, I hope this card will help cheer him up some.



The inspiration for this card came from a YouTube tutorial by Mary at TV Crafts (I think that is the correct site).  After going to YouTube for inspiration one of the blogs I follow had a good number of easle cards --think it was Paper Playtime.  Let me tell you, they were all totally awesome!!!!!
