Valentines and time...

Here are a few of the other cards I made. The baby card uses a stamp set I love from Verve called "Beautiful You". A very versatile stamp set. I CASE'd the card from their gallery on the website.

Products used all CTMH unless otherwise indicated: Paper: Sunny Yellow Texture, Thank Heaven -Tapestry by CR Gibson; Stamps: Beautiful You-Verve; Inks: Spring Iris, Accessories: Spring buttons, sewing machine, White Daisy waxy flax.

The Next several card are 4 x 4 valentines using 3 pieces of 4 x 4 patterned paper cut 1/3 x 2/3 and then using scraps to make the rest of the card. I LOVE this paper pack called "That's Amore" that CTMH released last spring. Unfortunately, the stamp set I used the most is retired, but it's one of my favorite CTMH Valentine stamp sets. Called "In my Heart". These were a lot of fun to make and quick! (SHH, they are for my kids). Yes, I only have 4, but I had fun making 6!

Products used all CTMH unless otherwise indicated: Paper: Colonial White, Tulip, Blush, That's Amore PP; Stamps: In my heart (retired), All my love; Ink: Chocolate, Blush; Accessories: Shades of Chocolate Mini-Medley (retired), Cricut-George and basic Shapes, MS paper edger, EK Success paper edger, The Paper Studio paper Edger.

This last card is a birthday card for my oldest brother. He is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and he does so much for others. I hope he likes it and it reminds him to take a little time for himself! It is from last weeks Mojo Monday #123.

Been busy!

The first two cards are my take from the sketch on Clean and Simple FTL #76. The first card uses only CTMH supplies, while the second uses very few. I love Basic Grey's line of paper and accessories... especially because the print is smaller (suitable for cards!). The one with butterflies is a birthday card for my sister, Amy. I showed a close up so you can see what I did with the butterflies. I love that type of shadowing!

The kids had a 4 day weekend this past weekend and we decided to break out the seed beads and make some new hair accessories! In the process we made a few Valentine decorations for the window that were inspired by this. We ran out of beads so this weekend we'll finish up and I'll show you what they look like hanging! Ashley and Holly weren't so interested in making the hairpins, but they love wearing them. Bethany is old enough now that she tried her hand at the beads and I think she liked how quick and easy it was! We made friendship bracelets and I made some cards. I'll post some more tomorrow, but for today, here are a few of our creations!
