I cut pieces of ribbon and weaved them together to create the background.

For this Card, I used patterned paper from the K & Company's Amy Butler Lotus collection. I cut small strips from each pattern and pieced them together to create my own pattern.
The ribbon is from Amy Butler's Sola collection.
To make the butterfly, I used a Studio G Soloz stamp. I stamped the image twice and cut out the center flower. I added the flower to the center of the other butterfly and then added a button!
I LOVE the way this card turned out!!

I just got done helping my niece make her birthday invitations. She is having a pool party at a hotel and a couple of the girls are going to stay the night with her in the hotel room. She has decided that she wants everyone to bring a dollar to the party and put in a jar. After her party she is going to donate the money to Breast Cancer. She is such a thoughtful girl to do something like this at age 12!
She wanted them to be simple and elegant!
We used the "Your invited" Cuddlebug Embossing folder for the inside. Then she filled them in with a pink metallic marker.
Then we stamped her initial on the outside of the envelopes. We also stamped her initial on the back of the cards.
She is really excited about her birthday party. She is even more excited about donating to help a good cause!

The little apartment my boyfriend and I are currently living in, is really small and plain. I decided to add some decor. I plan on doing a lot more with it. I just made these really quick and threw them up there for some color, while I decide how to decorate everything. I know it is simple but I needed color fast!!!

A few days before Christmas, my boyfriend and I went out looking for a "our first Christmas" ornament. We couldn't really find one we liked so we decided to find a semi-plan one and come home and use my craft supplies and decorate it together and make it our own. Well, the ornament that we go was glass, and as soon as we got in our house, the bag with the ornament in it got dropped. So, our ornament was broke...
Well, I was a little upset, but got over it quickly! I looked around my house for something that I could make an ornament out of, that would look special. I couldn't find anything.
Then, I glanced at the computer desk and saw the stack of blank Cd's. PERFECT!!!
I used paper from My Minds Eye Wonderful Winter glittered holiday paper stack and the snow flakes are from K&Company's Christmas Cheer Chipboard stickers.
I covered the label side of the CD with patterned paper. I sanded the edges to give them a finished look. Then I put a snowflake sticker in the center to cover up the hole and some writing that was in the center.
On the other side, I just put a chipboard sticker in the center to cover up the hole and I left the CD blank so the lights from the tree could reflect off of it.
We then took a sharpie and wrote messages and the date so we could remember "Our First Christmas!"
I love our ornament! I don't think a store bought ornament could be more "us."
After all the craziness of moving into a new house, Thanksgiving, Christmas and everything else. I am actually able to make a post. I have a lot of New Years resolutions that I would really like to accomplish. One being to craft more and share them with you!
