Long Time, No Blog!

Hi everyone!

It's been forever since I've blogged (or scrapped for that matter!!). I've been pretty busy this summer traveling, working, studying and relaxing, of course!

This is a pretty little birthday card I made this evening. This happy cake is from the Smiley Cards cartridge and the sentiment is from K Andrews Positive Thoughts stamp set! Hope you like it! xo

Cupcake Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my Blog and the Cupcake Birthday Blog Hop. We hope to inspire you with our Sweet Creations! If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and would like to play along, please start at!

Shape cards are my new favourite thing so I decided to make a cupcake shape card for the hop! First, I used my Gypsy to weld together 2 cupcakes from the Smiley Cards Cricut Cartridge - Don't forget to flip one of the images on your Gypsy so that they match up perfectly! Next, I simply cut out the card and the rest of the layers and put it together with my ATG Gun/Zig 2-Way Glue Pen. This was a super quick card to make and I love the way it turned out.. I hope you do too!

I do have a little something for blog candy if you'd like to leave a comment.. You do not have to be a follower but I'm always excited to make new friends! xo

Thanks for visiting - I am the last stop on this super sweet blog hop.. Thanks for joining in on all the fun!

Another Father's Day Card

Hello again!

I came across this digital stamp somewhere on the Internet (sorry I can't remember where!). I thought it was the cutest sentiment but I couldn't think of an image/cricut cut that would go with it.

So I asked my boyfriend (he has lots of good scrappin' ideas!) and he suggested a beer.. I thought it was such a good idea!

Forgotten Cards..

Hi Guys!

I forgot to post a couple cards I made for Easter.. I received some Easter cards from my students last year and they were sooo pretty.. You know I couldn't throw them out!!

Anyways, I wanted to use them sooner than later, since I have a million things I need to use before I buy anything else! It took a while for me to figure out what to do with them but I think they turned out ok.. xo

I made these really cute tags today using some Lettering Delights images. They were so simple to use - I just printed them on white cardstock, cut them out, layered them, stamped them and added ribbon!

I was quite skeptical about digital stamping/using coloured images from the Internet but these turned out great and I will be using them a lot more!!

Hey guys!

Just a little update as to what I've been up to lately.. I haven't done much scrappin' lately since I've been so busy with work and everything else! However, I have been keeping up with all of the blogs I follow and I've been keeping track of all the great ideas I want to try! :)

A couple of weeks ago, I received a package full of goodies in the mail as a thank you gift from - I was the first guest designer on her blog! It was such an honour.. Thanks again Patti!

I've always saved my calendars at the end of the year because they have too many pretty pictures to just throw them out (I know you all would do the same thing LOL!). While lying in bed the other night, I remembered I had a frame stored away somewhere and decided to fill it with pictures from an old Marilyn Monroe calendar! I loveeee her so much!

Tonight, my boyfriend asked me to make some labels to go along with all the yummy food he's making for his next catering job.. I thought that was so sweet of him! And even better, he said he would buy me a new stamp set in return!! BEST BOYFRIEND EVER!! xo

Multi-Challenge Card!

Today I finally entered some more challenges I've been wanting to participate in. I'm a little short on time lately so I decided/tried to make one card that would incorporate all the different challenges!

The challenges are:
- to create a home-made flower (
- to use the smiley cards cartridge (
- to use some ugly paper you have lying around (

It may not look too bad right now but the paper I used for the background was definitely ugly haha! It was an animal paper pack that I got when I first started scrapbooking. I cut out bits and pieces to create a scenic background! There is a picture below to give you an idea of what the ugly paper really looked like!

Also, this was the first ribbon/button flower I've ever made.. I like the idea but I'd probably do it a little different next time! Make sure you head on over to the websites above to enter some fun challenges! xo

A Home-Made Flower

To make this cute little flower I used a Fiskars flower punch and punched out 3 flowers in 3 different colours. Then I used my eyelet tool to keep the 3 layers together.

I thought it turned out super pretty but it was so small I didn't know what to do with it! So I flicked through the cards I already had lying around and I used it to embellish the inside of a Spring card I made earlier this month! xo

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


Here are a couple of cards I made for some very special friends of mine!! I was going to enter the giraffe card into the twine challenge at The CuttleBug Spot but I was too late! I entered the elephant one into a layout/sketch challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps! xo
