Caden's 4th Birthday Invitations

Well, it is hard to believe that my nephew, Caden, is going to be 4 years old already. Of course, I was asked to make his birthday invitations, which I thoroughly enjoy! These were super fast and easy cards!

Candy Corn Treat Boxes

This adorable Candy Corn Treat Box is a scraplift from the My Craft Spot blog. Kimberly cut hers from orange cardstock and created a ribbon handle. Since I plan on making alot of these, I nixed the ribbon handle and I used white cardstock instead of orange.

Cake Box - cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More - cut at 8"
Triangles - cut from Cricut Classic Font - cut at 3.2" x 4.55"
Faces from Peachy Keen

Candy Corn Halloween Cards

This is another scraplift from the Nothin' Fancy blog (she has some really GREAT ideas).

I had to cut the entire candy corn in each color, trim them, chalk them, I then added some faux stitching (which I'm not very good at), and then stamped them with the cute little Peachy Keen Stamps. The wording I created in WORD.

Frankenstein Treat Bags

When my daughter saw the Frankenstein cards she said I HAD to use the same pattern for my Trick or Treat bags this year. I live in a very small town and don't get many trick or treaters, so it isn't a huge undertaking.

Again, this idea is a spin off from Wednesday's card and from the Nothin' Fancy blog.

Treat Bag - Wrap It Up (button 49 with the witch hidden) - cut at 6.6"
Green cardstock - cut at 3" x 4"
Eyes (green & white) - punched at 1"
Eyes (black) - punched at 3/4"
Hair - created on Gypsy using a rectangle & triangles from Cricut Classic Font

Frankenstein Halloween Cards

I absolutely fell in love with this card when I saw it on the Nothin' Fancy blog.

I am all about how to make things easy and in mass quanities quickly. I created the "hair" on my Gypsy so that I didn't have to free hand each one. I ran all the pieces for the eyes and nose through my Xyron.

A2 Card
Green Cardstock - cut at 4.25" x 5.5"
Eyes & Nose (green) - punched at 1.25"
Eyes (white) - punched at 1.25"
Eyes (black) - punched at 1"
Hair - created on Gypsy using a rectangle and triangles from Cricut Classic Font

Graduation Cards

I really couldn't come up with any ideas for graduation cards this year. I had tried to get the new "Happy Graduation" cartridge but wasn't able to find it. I decided to go with the graduation card on Wrap it Up. I decided to make each card according to each graduates school colors. These were fast and really easy.

Card - 5.64" x 4.25"

Vinyl Picture Frame

I made this for my Aunt for Mother's Day. Her house is done entirely in a "western" motif. The frame and lettering is all from Old West. Though I did have to find an "alternate" way for the slits in the barbed wire so that there was more of a space between the "wires".

This was a "two man" job to place the vinyl on the glass. I luckily had my daughter close by helping me, otherwise I'm sure it would have been crooked and there would have been a bunch of air bubbles in it! (LOL)

11" x 13" Floating Frame
Black Vinyl
Barbed Wire Frame - 8.83" x 11"
Initial - 3.24" x 6.44"
Last Name - 6.60" x 1"

Easter "Chick" Easel Card

I can't seem to find my "notes" on these cards accept that they are A2 Easel cards. I can't remember if I scraplifted this from someone of the messageboard or not. If I did, I can't seem to locate the post that I normally print out.

I remember gluing these together by oil lamp sometime before Easter 2011. We had lost power and my dear husband was out trying to get our generator running, so I sat at the kitchen table with the oil lamp gluing all my Easter cards so I could get them mailed out the next day. I was so afraid that when I looked at them in the "real light" that they would probably be a huge mess, but they turned out GREAT!

Card Base - 4.24" x 11"
Score at 5.5" & 3"
Peachy Keen Stamp Set = PK-520 Winter Face Assortment Package
The chick & nest was cut from Create a Critter, but I don't remember what size they are.

My grand-daughter is a St. Patrick's Day baby (just like her great-great Grandmother). We had a HUGE 1st birthday party for her at our community center. With trying to get everything planned & decorations made, we went really simple on her birthday invitations.

Of course we had to make a "play" on her being a St. Patrick's day baby and have a shamrock on her invitation and in her decorations.

Shamrocks - 4.73" x 5.15" - Designer's Calendar
Ladybugs - 1.81" x 2" - CM Cheerful Seasons

5.75" x 5.75" - light green cardstock
5.5" x 5.5" - white cardstock
5.25" x 5.25" - lavendar cardstock
5.5" x 5.5" - white cardstock (back of card)(ran through printer with party details)

Pray for Cindy window decals

There is a very sick young lady in my community. They determined that she had encephalitis. She was airlifted to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Many in the community have come together to raise funds to help the family with expenses while she is in the hospital. I wasn't able to help out with much of what was being planned, but I knew that I had to do something.

I created this window decal on my Gypsy to help with the fund raising that is being done.

If you would like more information about Cindy she has a Facebook page: "Keep Up The Fight Cindy".

Thanks for looking and PRAY FOR CINDY,
