Simple birthday card

Here's a very simple birthday card I did for my dad:It's been a while so I don't remember some of the supplies
  • Card: Die Cuts with a View
  • Cuttlebug Folders: Moroccan and Swiss Dots
  • Top note shape: Cut with Cricut, probably from SCAL file by ScrappedLives
  • Circle Wording: Done in Word with WordArt but Inspired by Regina Easter at The Cutting Cafe
  • Circle: Cut with Cricut (couldn't get it centered very well)
  • It's Your Day: Celebrations Cartridge
  • Balloon and Confetti Stickers: Probably Mrs. Grossman's

A couple of simple Halloween cards

I made these for my sister and my niece using the Making Memories Spellbound products. The pumpkin on the first one is cut with the Cricut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge

Base Camp Ampersand Anniversary Card

This card was inspired by a Bitten by the Bug Challenge back in November, specifically this card here:

I made this for my husband's dept. secretary. I forgot to take pictures before we left home for the party so I took these in the car. Not too bad considering the setting. All of it is from Base Camp. I used DS to weld the two & signs together and also to weld the shadows. I found the metallic paper at Hobby Lobby. It cut really well. I used the cuddlebug divine swirls embossing folder on the white and on the 50. I popped the numbers and letters.

Beyond Birthdays Mother's Day card

This card was inspired by all the wonderful designers at Bitten By the Bug. Their challenge to was to use the vase and Mom or Mum from the Beyond Birthdays cartridge. You can see all of their awesome designs here. I decided to try one too. This was my first card to use my new cuttlebug and the swiss dots embossing folder. I love how it adds that special touch and just completes the card.
