Stick Pins

I could definitely get obsessed with these little things. I am lucky that my mom makes jewelry so I have inherited her "extras". These are fun and pretty easy to make. Just take corsage pins, bead your design on them, when you get to the last bead put some glossy accents on the pin and roll your pin around it. Let them dry. Easy Peasy.

Happy Birthday Cards

I won blog candy a few weeks ago for an awesome card making book. There was an example of a card to look like an Oreo cookie. In the directions it had you using punches and stamps. I took the directions and used my good ol' cricut to make the shapes instead. I also used Beyond Birthdays for the sediment. I used my swiss dots embossing folder for the circle in the center of the scallop. I believe the scallop circle and the regular circle were from Mini Monograms.

My friend Jen seems to like them and they were fun to make.

9 Month Layout

All the paper I used for this LO is from Close to My Heart. I have never used any of their stuff before but I got it at a scrap booking garage sale. I LOOOOOVVVVVVEEEE it! Both the card stock and patterned papers are awesome! Great! Just what I need another addiction! OK back to the LO: I used my paper ripper ruler to do the boarders. Used Stone Script for the title. The "So Cute" is from Create A Critter. I stapled the ribbon on the mat of the one page and put three flower brads on the other mat along with the cut! Of course there is stickles on the 9 months, the cute and the brads. I think like the caption says it turned out TOO CUTE!!!

6 Month Layout

For this sweet layout it started as a whim. I had no idea what I was going to do with the pictures. I just laid them down in the way they are on the big circle and had an "aha" thought. I cut the big circle and also the little ones all from George. I then stickled around the whole circle. I took pearls and put them on the two sides of the big circle. Keeping with the theme I decided to cut the bunny and carrot from Create a Critter. I have no idea which cart (I know you are shocked right???) I used to cut the title from.

8 Month Layout

Another layout done! This one I actually know which carts I used but not 100% as to what sizes! For the hearts I used Sweethearts cart. For the 8 months I used storybook with the shadow feature as well. Of course there is some stickles on the letters for good measure! LOVE was chipboard stickers that I have had forever. Prima flowers with cute buttons complete the page! I love how this book is really coming together!!!
