~Scallop Card from Wild Card Cartridge~

Hi everyone! I know it's been a while. I have been designing a lot lately on my Gypsy and tonight I decided to cut out something! My youngest sister lives in TN, so I don't see her that often. So, I decided I would make her a card to send to her and her family. I LOVE you Bubba! Give the kiddos a kissy from me!

Everything is cut at 5 inhes. 
On the Wild Card cartridge, the easiest way to know your card will fit in the envelope is if you cut your envelope first, fit to page, then everything else will be cut out at the width dimension. Did that make sense? LOL

Welcome the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal!!!
Today the Design Team is bringing you some very special projects created for our wonderful and amazing leader Kristal! Our term is almost over and we wanted to show her just how much we appreciate ALL that she has done for us this term. The projects that we will be sharing with you will also be sent to Kristal. We encourage ALL of her fans to join in on the fun as well! Be sure to add your card/project to the link below and then be sure to mail it off to her!

If you've hopped along from Anita's page, then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America. You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs.

Now on to my special project I made for Kristal. I seen a tutorial from Teresa Collins on how to make this cute little matchbox book using 1 sheet of 12x12 paper. You can check out the video of the tutorial HERE.  I decided to also cut out some white card stock squares so she can put on the inside of the book in case she would like to add something herself.   

The stamp set I used is "Crafty Friends" from K. Andrew. You can purchase that set here!

Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

This week at Getting Cricky, the challenge is "Wedding Bells are Ringing". We are to make a project for a Wedding, Engagement, or Anniversary. I just LOVE this theme. I'm all about LOVE! LOL. This is actually my second item I made for the challenge. I didn't like my first project I made. It was two heart bags from the TBBM cart. The bag was NOT what I expected, but I absolutely LOVE that cartridge. I actually can't wait to get TBBM 2! It just came out. 

Anywho...onto my project. I decided to make a tag using TBBM. I cut it at 5.25. The sentiment on the stamp is from K. Andrew. Her stamps are wonderful and so versatile. The "Bottom's Up" sentiment is from "Pirate Tales and Fish Scales-Sentiments". LOVE that name! It's so cute. :) You can click here to purchase this set and also to check out all of her other amazing stamps! 

Thank you for visiting! Don't forget to go and check out all of the other great projects from K. Andrew's Design Team!!!

Gift Card Holder

I made this gift card holder for a co-worker who is due to have a baby girl next month. We are having a special lunch for her and I thought I'd throw something quick together to give her at the luncheon.  The stamp and gift card die used can be found here. I used Nursery Tails for the bib and Sugar and Spice for the teddy bear. I think this turned out really cute! Hope you all enjoyed as well.
