Fish Birthday card

This is a fish-shaped card I made for my cousin's 5th birthday. I used the gypsy to make the card fish shaped. I used Create a Critter for the fish image. The fish"scales" were made using a wide variety of stickles. I wish I had a better picture to show the shape better, but I forgot to take a picture until he opened it, so I just layed it ontop of the envelope and took the pic. Thanks for looking

Wedding gift

This is a tile I made for my Brother in law and his bride. It is similar to the past tiles I made, except I decided to try to use regular paper for my picture instead of tissue paper. It worked beautifully. They really liked their gift. I think it turned out really nice.
I printed the picture out on my computer using regular computer paper and trimmed it to the size I needed. I cut all the lettering out using Wall Decor and more. I used the gypsy to line it up and size it to my liking. The hearts in the corner are also from Wall Decor and More. I used cardstock to cut all the letters and hearts out. I then adhered everything to the tile so it wouldn't move while I was sealing it. I then used Mod Podge to seal the tile.
I love making these tiles. I think they make great gifts and they are very inexpensive to make.
Thanks for looking.

All Star Card

This is the birthday card I made my nephew, who happens to play almost all sports. I used the Potpourri cartridge for the All Star saying, which I used cricut markers to write on the banner with. I used the Everyday Paperdolls for all the sports items. I also used the cricut markers to write on the Happy Birthday. I first cut it out as a shadow, and then used the regular "cut" with the markers. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking!

These are 3 card that I made using my Cuttlebug embosser folders. I then used a glitter gel pen to trace/outline all (or most) of the embossed images. I used rhinestone bling to add a little extra to the card. I really like how these turned out, and they are very quick and easy to make. Thanks for looking!

This is a very simple train card I made using the My Community cartridge for the train. I used a couple small brads to connect it. I used the Celebrations cartridge for the word "Celebrate". I used bling rhinestones for the smoke coming from the train. I think this is a very cute card to use for a little boy.

Large tissue tile

I made this tissue tile for my mom for her birthday. This was done using a 12x12 tile. I think it makes a very nice collage.

Tissue Tiles

These are my first attempt at tissue paper tiles. They are of my two sons. I made a set for my dad and a set for my father-in-law. I couldn't believe how easy they were to make and how incredibly cute they turned out.
I used the Storybook cartridge to cut the names and year using vinyl. I of course used my gypsy to size my letters and numbers correctly. I then used Modge Podge to seal it.
