Super Mario invites

So I have been working frantically to get everything ready for a close friends boys birthday party. She told me that her boys wanted to have a super Mario brothers party and that's all it took for my brain to start cranking out ideas. Ideas just kept coming And now I have committed myself to a whole bunch of projects. I don't mind at all because I am having way too much fun making everything. I just can't wait to see everything done and put together.
First I want to show where everything started from. The invites! I'm so excited to show these I worked really hard and they came out awesome.

What do you all think? Cute right? I took the dice file from the Green Room kit from SVG Cuts and altered the file a bit so that I could make the question marks for every side and also the slit on the top of the cube for the invite to go in. As for the mushroom I found an image online and then using Make the Cut I converted it to a cuttable file and I paper pierced the mushroom together. I even made a back for him to.

Here you can see me working on attaching the mushrooms To the invites. (Psst. See that cute star in the background? Look for my post about that, one day this week.)

Here are the invites with the mushrooms attached.

See I was not lying about the backs. Here are the back of my cute little mushrooms.

Finally here they are folded and ready to be inserted into there cute cube.
I really hope you enjoyed my Super Mario cube invites because I really enjoyed making them. Please check back soon because I will be posting more projects that I am working on for the party.

Asian inspired birthday card

I believe I created my all time favorite card the other day. I so did not want to get rid of this one but I created for my little cousins 15th birthday so I did end up giving it up. I made sure she did not throw it away because if she was going to I was going to ask for it back. Is that bad? Any who without further ado drum roll please.....

What do yall think? Beautiful right? The papers are my fav. I believe they collection is by Recollections and it's called cherry blossom. The card shape is from SVG Cuts Breezy Backyard Lever Cards the pinwheel one. the cherry blossom tree in the background is also from SVG cuts it is from there free files. I love those free files. The little Kokeshi file is from the silhouette online store

Here is the card opened up. Again notice those beautiful papers. I get so excited just looking at them. I'm weird I know.

I also made a matching envelope to go with my card.

This is the back side of the envelope

This is the front side of the envelope.

Oh Christmas tree

I finally got around to asking the Christmas tree card from the new SVG Cuts kit. It is so cute of a card that I'm really thinking about putting it out as decoration instead of giving it to someone for Christmas. Shhh.. Just don't tell anyone. ;)

I used the jolly holiday paper from recollections again for everything on this card. I also used stickles,glossy accents and I embossed the green present with my cuttlebug.

Christmas in July

I'm really not the one to make cards for holidays when the holiday is not even close but when I saw the new kit from SVG Cuts I just had to work on a quick card. And hey I'm already have one Christmas card ready to go. Yah me!

All the paper I used came from the Recollections jolly Holliday paper pack. The papers in there are just to too cute. I'm really excited to use some more of the papers for other projects besides Christmas cards. I also used some stickles for the snowflakes and some cute little jewels for the centers and as accents.

Well I'm out for now I will be back tomorrow and the next day and the next day... With some more projects that I have been working on.

4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone

Just thought that I would share a quick layout that I created for my daughters scrapbook. I used a template from SVG Cuts Stars and Strips kit for my base and then for added details I used another kit called Made in the USA.

Well how about I stop rambling and show you the pics

I didn't have my daughters pictures in the layout since I plan on taking some tomorrow to add to this layout so I just out some cute paper in its place.

Wanted to show you those cute little jewels that I added to the bottom of her skirt her shirt and his shirt.

I also added some bling using stickles to the firecracker. Along with sowm cute star stickers

I added a cute flower that I made using some cute papers and a button. I believe the file for this flower is from the made in the USA kit. Finally I added some glitter to my tag on the top along with the same stars that I used on the firecracker.

That's it. I hope that I didn't bore you all too much. Thanks for stopping by my page.

Summer summer summer time

Since where I live it's like 95 degrees but feels like 110. I figured I would create a summer themed card.
I decided to make an easel card complete with sand, water and clouds. I used all Lettering Delights cuts for this whole card. I had to modify some things to my little kids. I could not find any floatie SVG files so I created some arm floaties for my boy using rectangles and a half circle for my little girl. I also used a peachy keen face for the little girl. I always think that this adds a prettier touch. I paper pierced the little girl, castle,stars, sun and sea shells and print and cut the little boy, sand bucket, and ball.

As for my sand I just ripped some Kraft paper and layered it to make it look like sand. Well I hope you enjoyed my summery card as much as I enjoyed I enjoyed it making me want to go to the beach.
