My Niece's Birthday Invitations

I just wanted to show you all the invitations I designed for my niece's "princess" birthday party. I used gypsy wanderings for the crown image, and a martha stewart punch around the page for the shape of the card, along with Close to my Heart papers and inks. My sis did a great job of putting them together! Sorry the pic is a little blurry!

Unity Stamp Co. Card for my Niece

I just wanted to share this cute card that I made for my niece. I used the March and January stamp kits from Unity Stamp Co. for the sentiment and the image of the fashionable lady! I paper pieced her by stamping her on white cardstock and on a patterned paper. I then cut out her shirt, cuff, and earring from the patterned paper and adhered it to the stamped image. The background was stamped using a Hero Arts rubber stamp, and was die cut with a Tim Holtz die. The picture frames were cut from black artboard and using a Sizzix die. Thanks for looking!

Mini with a Punch Pattern by VianneyCreates!!

Hi, all! I am super excited to share my new pattern with everyone! This is a pattern to create a pocket page mini album that uses all of those great Martha Stewart punch around the page punches that we all have! Use just one throughout the whole book or several punches, it looks great however you punch it! You will also learn how to create a binder for your special creation!

I hope that this will lead to many more fun creations and ideas that I will begin to sell and teach! Of course, I'll still have plenty freebies; however, this project took a lot of time to create and engineer, the price is $5 for the 16 page manual! That's a great deal, it's full of pictures, tips, and absolutely clear instructions!! Here are a few pics to get you going, I used a K & Co paper pack:

I also have a video tour of the mini at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFeFRs8iT1o

I will e-mail the instructions to you within 24 hours (most likely sooner than that), and hope that you enjoy your mini!

Peachy Keen X's and O's Challenge

Here is my card for the challenge! I am very happy with it, and plan on making several for Valentine's! I made the card base by running a folded card under a spellbinder die through my cuttlebug. Topped it with a smaller diecut that I embossed with swiss dots, and topped that with several hearts punched with a MS punch. I used the medium critter set A stamps to put the cutest "boy" and "girl" faces on my hearts. Then I added glittery chipboard X and O from the Target dollar section.

Some random projects

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been on my blog in a while, but I thought I would just start off by adding some pics of random things I've been making, but I think my husband deleted a lot of them on our trip to Napa to make room for more pics!!! I'll talk with him later!

Goody bags for my oldest son's class! I think they came out really cute! Just stamped
a little scene on the front and on the top flap, folded
it over and punched holes to thread ribbon through to hold a candy cane!

fondant covered cupcakes

Bad lighting! This is a card my sister in law made for her daughter!
