A baseball birthday card

This is a birthday card that I made for a friend of my sons. I used the cricut baseball solutions cartridge for the baseball player, and the cuttlebug happy birthday embossing folder. I inked the embossed happy birthdays with brown ink. I managed to use a few of my new buttons too. Thanks for looking.

Happy Anniversary to me!

Yesterday was Craig's and my 12th wedding anniversary! It has been so wonderful, gone by so fast, but it also seems like we have been together forever (in a good way). We have 38 years to make it to our goal of 50 years..God willing.

Buttons Buttons! What to do with all the buttons.

I recently attended the Great American Scrapbook convention, and I was somewhat disappointed with what I found. I only go to shop. Last year I was very excited to find the perfect papers for my Great Wolf Lodge album(which I haven't even started yet) from D.J. Inkers. I was hoping to see them again as I now love their stamps...I wouldn't even look at them last year. But they did not have a booth this year. So this year my biggest purchase was a bunch of buttons...I have never used buttons in layouts. They seem a bit bulky, yet here I am with all these buttons, and they are so cute. Click on the picture to get a closer look. Any thoughts or ideas? Please comment here.

A cool teacher's gift

A friend and I made this for a teacher's gift. All of the cuts on the bookcase were cut from the Cricut Paper Dolls Dress Up (PDDU) cartridge. They were decorated with inks and chalks, and applied to the bookcase with Mod Podge. It was definitely a tear jerker moment.

A few cards

I am much more of a scrapper than a card maker, but here are a few.

Some layouts, most of these are older.
