Flower Pot Card

Ok so here is my attempt at making a flower pot card. I am not to happy with the way it turned out but I guess it could have been worse. I cut the flowers using George and Basic Shapes at 2 inch, 1 1/2 inch and 1 inch for the solid cardstock and the patterned paper was cut at 3/4 inch, 1 1/4 inch, 1 3/4 inch. I used Recollections pastel brads for the center of the flower. The leaves were cut at 1 3/4 inch and 2 inchs using Wild Card. The ribbon has pink dragonflies on it and is from Micheals I left the sentiment blank but it will probably be a birthday card. I'm not sure yet. I also used the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers to make this card.

Birthday card for my nephew

My nephew is turning 2 on the 31 so I made this card. I used New Arrival for the monkeys cut at 2 inch and 3 3/4 inch and Wild card for the branch cut at 5 3/4. I pop dotted the monkey on the front of the card.

Gift box with candy and card

This is 3x3 card. I used George and Basic Shapes for the flower cut and layered many sizes and a brad for the center. I left the sentiment blank. I'm not really sure what I am going to do with it yet.I wrapped a Hershey Nugget in matching patterned paper cut at 1x3 inches.
The flower cut same as for the card just added a few more layers and another brad for the center.

I made the box using a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers. You can find this tutorial at

Diaper Cake

This is the card I made to go with the Diaper cake. I used the Cuttlebug Dots folder and Pooh and Friends Cart.

This is the first and only so far diaper cake that I have made. I made this for my sister in law's Winnie the Pooh themed baby shower gift. I used Pooh Font and Design Studio to weld the honeypots together. All the rest of the cut are from Pooh and Friends. I can't remember exactly how many diapers I used but I know it was somewhere around 150. The ribbon is from Micheals and I added a stuffed pooh for the topper and binkie's are attached with ribbon and glue dots.

My first Card

This is the very first card I have ever made. I used Accent Essentials for the scallop circle and the circle and New Arrival for the feet. The ribbon I got at Michaels.
