Hello

Today I made a simple but elegant birthday card for my mom. Here is the video

 

Anna Griffin Dies can be found at HSN

 

I worked on this package like there is no tomorrow. There are a total of 37 cards and 4 gift card holders.

I made these cards for donation to Assumption School in Pasadena. They will go up on an auction during March.

I will post videos to follow on how I made some of them.

Thanks for watching!

Happy Sunday Crafters!

Made this girly gift box using my favorite SVGCuts! I used my purse that I bought in Vienna Austria as an inspiration. Click on the banner to the right and it will take you to their site if you want to buy the file. I used the Playful Parlor collection and chose the “Playful gift bag.” I customize it by using satin cord and creating a strap for it to make it look more like a real purse. All the files come pre-measured for you so need to configure them. The finish box is 9.5″ wide x 4.5″ deep x 6 1/4″ tall.

Of course you can always buy the beautiful satin flowers at my shop to finish it up: http://store.ldmcreations.com/

Hi
I made this elegant card with my Eclips and DCWV paper. Instructions are in the video.

 

Today we had a fun time at my sister’s house. She is expecting so I made a cute “mommy to be” card for her and gave her some maternity clothes (this is her first child). I had made my mom’s card before so I thought I would just add a cute envelope. Here are my two projects for Mother’s Day:

I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge on this card. The mommy was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I cut three layers: 1 black, 1 brown and 1 patterned paper. The black was used for the main figure. The brown was used for the pants and the hair (I used a silver marker to make the polka dots) and I used the glitter stack for the patterned paper. The card was cut at 5″ tall x 4 1/2 wide.

Now for the hippo on the envelope I used the create a critter cutting it at 4 1/2 inches. I used the moving eyes (found at Michaels) and the Martha Stewart glitter polka dots paper. I used plan fuschia card stock and pink card stock for the back ground and mouth of the hippo.
