A few new projects!!!

I am so glad to finally be back on here...we have had a bit of a family crisis, which left me not much in the mood for crafting, and my little boy's basketball season has been underway.  Not to mention that I actually have a full-time job!  But nevertheless, here I am...with a few new projects to share.  Gonna get my Flaunt It Friday project up tomorrow...have a really cute idea for that one.

This is a birthday card for my good friend and colleague, Anne.  The card is 5x7 white cardstock covered with Black toile paper--I think it is Paper Studio.  Flower embellishments a friend of mine gave me.  The Blue background paper is from a Stampin' Up patterned stack I picked up a Loooong time ago.  Gray Core'dinations, an MSE stamp.  Cake was cut from Everyday Paper Dolls from cardstock first, then layered with vellum and accented with MS glitter.  I popped it off the page with Action Wobbles--I LOOOOOOOOOVE these!  I got mine free from a giveaway that Emma at My Creative Time sponsored. THANKS EMMA!!!  Click here to go to a video that shows how to make a "wobble."  It's not the Action Wobble, but I have no idea where you can buy the authentic product.

My baby boy will be 10 on December 23.  These pages are from his 8th Birthday.  He had his party at an indoor water park--such fun.  He got a BB gun for his birthday that year.  I wanted to say, "you'll shoot your eye out!"  But I didn't.  The paper came from the DCWV Grade School Stack.  Green strips from Stampin Up.  Blue and Red from DCWV, then run through the textured impressions with a Cuttlebug Folder.  Letters were cut from Plantin Schoolbook, then faux stitched with blue gel pen.  Ribbon on journaling box came from Target dollar bin.  Stickers were purchased for me by my good friend, Linda...and they blended so well!  

This 4x4  inch card was made to attach to my children's teacher gifts.  The red card background is DCWV textured cardstock.  The White cardstock was run through the Textured Impressions machine with a Cuttlebug folder.  The cup is from the Joys of the Season cartridge, cut at 2 inches on DCWV paper from the All Dressed Up stack.  A few stickles for steam and holly.  Red snowflake ribbon from Target dollar bin.  Inside, it says, "For a TEA-rriffic teacher!  Merry Christmas!"  I attached it to a package containing a clear glass mug full of herbal tea bags and homemade chocolate truffles.  But then I didn't take a picture! LOL

I waited so anxiously for my order from to come.  I finally purchased the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge (@$17.95!!!!!!), and this was my first effort with it.  I cut using the card feature, then added all the little pieces.  Added some stickles to dress it up a bit, and I love how it turned out--though the photo is horrible!  
Hope everyone is having a great season.  I finished my shopping today, but the crafting still goes on.  And the shipping hasn't even begun!  I get to go be a basketball mom again tomorrow, though.  That is first priority!
