A little girly :)

I guess I've been in a little bit more of a girly mood lately. Especially with this envelope tutorial I found mixed with the Garden Variety/Material Girl collections.. they're a perfect match!

I had a request for a "twins" card! I saw this little saying when I was googling twin cards and I usually try to be original with my sayings but I know who this card may be going to so I thought it was very fitting! Thanks to you who came up with it!! And thank you hubby for sketching my little pod for over two hours and making it look oh-so-poddish!!!!! 

American Crafts Design Team tryouts!

I follow a handful of designer blogs and American Crafts ( my favorite) is having a design team tryout! I thought "Why not!!" So here are my 2 pages and a project that I submitted! I made a card too but I can't post it yet because it's going to be given to someone soon! Such a fun opportunity/challenge!!
I will keep ya'll posted!!

More baby cards and sweetpeadesign exclusive!

My SIL asked me to make a framed sentiment for her baby girl that's due in Sep! I searched and searched Hobby Lobby for inspiration and knew that this hanging tray was the winner! She used to always put together shadow boxes and I thought this would be a good combo of the 2 elements I needed it to have! I am thinking my craft room needs an addition like this :)

This design was from my Scrapbook Etc magazine! I have been waiting for an opportunity to use it and I just love the symbolism of the extra little birdie:)

This was inspired by a gift bag I saw at DollarTree... I drew her and the umbrella out myself.. .whew

Baby Birthday Cards

At the recent shower me and my SIL threw for my other SIL... we set up stations for our guests to move from one to the other.. We always like to have a little something different and since I am an avid card-maker this idea was a great fit! They are birthday cards that guests can fill out and on the baby's future birthdays they can open the cards that are filled with wishes and wisdom! They were a big hit and I can't wait to see how she reacts to them on her future birthdays!
P.S. pictures from the Lavender,Lime, and Laundry shower are yet to come!!

Cards 6 and 8 designed by me. Other designs inspired by Kwernerdesign, Scrapbook etc. and Kylie Nicolosi. Thanks for being my inspiration!!

Lavender, Lime, and Laundry

My sister-N-law and I made these shower invites for my my other sister-N-law who is having a baby girl. These were her baby room colors we picked out so we decided this would be a fun and different theme!! We have a TON of ideas planned for the theme and I will post pics when it all takes place!

Father's Day Cards

I had all intentions of posting these before Father's day but it's quite alright! I personalized each card to fit each dad:)
This card was just an extra I had made if anyone needed one!

   This one is for my dad who loves to fish... he love love loves it!

 This one was for my Father-N-Law who plays drums and guitar!!

And this one for my dad who has alot of photos of me around the house and really enjoys having photos! I found this pic of him holding me.. I'm not sure he's even seen it so I was really excited about this one!

Starbucks,donuts, & photo-dabble:)

We don't do donuts very often... which I think makes them taste all the better! And if you haven't tried the new Coconut Mocha Frapp... it's sooo yummy!!!!!

Cyndi+Gregg! We are throwing a couple's country style wedding shower! The guys will be playing horse-shoes and we will be showering:)My sister-n-law and I made these together! She was a lot of the brains of the operation! Thank you Anna-Lea!!

Sister's Grad Announcements

I can't believe she is graduating! She has grown into such a beautiful lady! After hours of struggling with what site/style/layout to use for her graduation announcements.. I decided to just make my own for her!! I've only had a few tutorials so it took me a WHILE but I am really happy with how they turned out.. Def my sisters style!
I love you Lauren!!

wedding invites...

with the assistance of my best friend's Mammaw:) I made my own wedding invitations a few years ago... This would be my first attempt on my own at making some. I get so nervous doing anything for weddings (especially hair). I am open for suggestions and criticism:) 

it drives me crazy that I can't get that ribbon perfect!!!

more scrap pages:)

 I made this (8x8) page a few days ago... inspired by a layout I found online(sorry I can't get the resource for ya) but I thought I would use the idea to document my little scriptures God has shown me lately. One was a little note I found in the sheets when I went to clean them.. and I have no idea where it came from! I found it around Christmastime and thought maybe it was in a gift or something but everyone I've asked about it has no idea where it came from... but deep down I know EXACTLY where it came from and just at the time I needed it!
Used the gorgeous Hello Luscious line by Basicgrey
 This page (6x6) was my very first page!
This (6x6) is my very second page:)
