Happy birthday to my son

My son's birthday is this weekend and since he is a big LA Laker's fan, I thought I'd make a card using their colors. The stamped image is from one of the Greeting Farm sets that I have. I can't remember his name.
I really have a hard time making men or boy cards but I wanted to keep this as simple as possible. The shaker part was quite easy and I thought he would get a kick out of that.
I used Sizzix framelits to make the frame and base of the shaker card. I like the sizes of the framelits more than nestabilities. It's easier to fit these bigger stamped images in them.
The micro beads are Martha Stewart beads that I got from the store.
Here's a closer photo of the beads.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!!!

Easter bunny scalloped bag

Hi I'm back!!! Ok, I guess I'm on a roll using my Eclips machine. I am still cleaning my craft room and took a break an hour ago to make this Easter bunny bag. I cut the scalloped bag out using the albums, bags, and boxes cartridge. Then I used the Easter cartridge and cut this cute bunny face out. I actually changed the eyes because the one that comes on the cartridge is shaped like a teardrop and I wanted big round eyes. So I replaced it using a 1/2" circle punch and punched out black circles. The whites in the eyes are from a 1/4" punch.
I applied pink chalk near the nose area to give it a little color. Here's a side view so you can sort of see where I put the grass for the candy.
Hey, thanks for checking on me again! Have a great day!!!

Just for you!

I haven't touched my Eclips machine in awhile so today after I cleaned out some of my craft bins, I
decided to make something using the machine. I haven't made a mini album in awhile so I used the albums, bags, and boxes #2 cartridge to cut out this tag album.
Using the center point feature, I cut a shape out from one of the banner embellishments.
Here is the tag shape that I chose for my mini album. All stamps are Dandelion Designs.
The album folds in half in the middle. You can cut as many pages as you want but I just went with this one page for a sample. You can tie it with ribbon or twine in the middle to separate the pages. I bought this Bo Bunny paper from Ben Franklin Crafts last year and I finally broke down to use it. I tend to hoard something if I really like it. Ha!
And here is the opposite side of the album with a green tag. Sorry the photos aren't that great but I didn't feel like hauling my camera out to take pictures so I ended up using my phone. It is more of a lighting problem.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope your week is going great!!!

Sweet girl's day wishes

Happy Friday!!! The days are flying by so fast and Girl's Day will be here soon. It's a day I can't forget because I was in labor with my son many years ago. Ha!
Here's a card that I made using Dandelion Designs new Girl's Day stamp set and Sizzix zig-zag pop-up die. The three girls are actually 1 stamp but I separated them for this card.
I had a hard time stamping those little words on each fan. This set is really tiny but so cute!
Here's a peek at how the zig-zag pop-up piece looks like. The punched border is the MS cherry blossom border punch.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! I know I haven't been posting as much lately, but I've been getting side tracked on FB and also Pinterest. Pinterest is so addicting! Have a great weekend!!!

No frills Valentine

Hi, Happy Valentine's Day!!! Prior to leaving for CHA, I worked on this card and never finished it. Well, today I finally went downstairs to my craft room and thought I'd better finish it. I'm giving this to my husband for Valentine's Day and hope he likes it.
This is quite a different look for me. The paper is by Echo Park and it made me think that the card should look vintage. The cupid is a die set from Tim Holtz - mini cupid & heart.
The big ticket in the middle is a Hero Arts stamp. I love that stamp! They even have a die that will cut the ticket out.
Hope you're having a great Valentine's Day!!!
