Be Yourself Birthday Card

What a blessing it is to have great friends surrounding me. Amanda is one of them and this Birthday card is for her special day tomorrow... or more accurately in the next half hour. I hope she likes it. I made it today during the kids (& DH's) nap time. I used the May Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart and the Key to My Heart paper kit also CTMH. The layout came from Jeanette Lynton's book called Originals. I love it because sometimes I don't have time to be creative and it's a great starting point. This particular card pattern is on page 90.
Amanda I hope you have an awesome birthday!!! And remember it doesn't have to be limited to just one day; take a week or two.

Cute Birthday Card

I can't say fast, it took me a while to create this. But it would be fast to re-create it. It is a 5x7 card. I made it for Drew's first birthday. I kept playing around with it one night. I thought it turned out cute. It's not to kiddish so you could use it for an adults b-day too. I used spring Iris Blue and the green pattern paper is from the CTMH Emporium Level 2 Kit. The Stamp set is birthday bash for the cake and the words are from the Nursery Set offered by CTMH.

Just playing around

I was feeling in the mood to play with my mother's day gift, a new paper cutter. My DH and the kids got me for mother's day. I hinted very subtlety that I needed one and whoopee, I got it. It's taking a little getting used to, but I'm having fun breaking it in.
Here are some things I've done recently and some I just like that I've done a little while ago. I hope you find some inspiration.

This Close To My Heart Acrylic Album is a workshop I created for a Hostess Reward club that met last month. We had a blast working with this. Magic Moments is the Close To My Heart paper kit used.
It was a fun challenge to create this workshop project only using 1/2 a level 2 paper pack and one set of Magic Moments My Stickease.

The CTMH rub-ons work great on the Acrylic Album.
The pictures are not that great, but you can get the idea. It turned out really cute. This one I gave to my sister. I can't wait to see how she filled it up with photos.

This is the last page. I've got some other items I'll post for you later this week.
