It's Your Bird-day!

My mom celebrated her birthday this past month.  She is a beginning card maker/scrapbooker and so I wanted to create a card for her that used lots of techniques.  Here it is! 

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder in the background to give it the illusion of clouds.  I used patterned paper for the cupcake liner, Martha Stewart fringe scissors to make the grass, inking on the cloud, and pop dots for dimension.  Here's a close up of some of that:

The bird is from 3 Birds on Parade Cricut cart, cut at 3.5".  

She enjoyed this card and I wish all of mine would turn out like this! 

Thanks for visiting me today!

Holly Jolly Blog Hop

Hello all!  Welcome to the next stop on the Holly Jolly blog hop!  You should have arrived here from In Love with Paper.   If you are just beginning the hop, Kristen is our host.  Today's hop showcases items to jump start your holiday projects!  I hope you have been enjoying it so far.  

My project for you today is a Christmas layout about my cat.  Last Christmas, we bought her a little carpet covered house.  We wrapped it and put it under the tree.  That cat knew right away it was hers!  She laid on, pawed at it, tried to eat it.  

The layout design is from the cover layout on the Scrapbook Trends December 2011 magazine.  The cat is cut from Meow Lite at 3".  It's hat is from Create a Critter 2 at 3".  Also from Meow is the 4" tag.  The title of Naughty or Nice is from CAC2 at 2.5". 

Here is the journaling tucked in between the two pictures. 

I just couldn't believe how in love she was with this present, even when it was wrapped.  By Christmas morning, it was practically open from all of her loving it!  

Please leave a comment for a chance at a Christmas themed mystery package to arrive in your mailbox!  Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you, either email or Cricut MB name.  I will draw a winner by the end of the week. 

Your next stop is  Scrappin Nanapuddin.  Enjoy - thanks for visiting! 
Here is the entire blog hop list in case you need it.  Thanks for joining us today!

Fall Soccer Layout

Hello!  Last month I was a guest designer over on the Cricut FANatics blog. I am posting again there tomorrow and that reminded me that I never came back here to share the fall soccer layout I did!  I really love this layout.

You can see the full details of the layout by visiting my original post on Cricut FANatics!

Be sure to stop by this weekend for the Holly Jolly blog hop!
