Happy Birthday!

I used my Gypsy to make the flower using the Smiley Card Cartridge.
I welded the middle part of the flower to make it into a mini card!

My Travel Mini Brag book!

We are going to Georgia this summer and when we went last year I brought all the supplies with me so we could make a scrapbook of our trip.Well that never happened, so I decided I would pre-make the book and mail it ahead of time so while we are there with Grandma and Nana the only thing they have to do is write notes and add the photos!

I am so happy with how this came out!
The size is 9x6 I used office envelopes so there would be a place to hold tickets, mementos etc and added cardstock between each page! it is 22 pages!! it took me about 4 hours to complete. I might have to make one more, so that we have one and the Grandmas have one!

I used scallops so I can add just our faces to each one!

ALL papers are from scraps!

Thank You Cute Chick!

My bestie sent me a surprise in the mail! It was a set of Peachy Keen Stamps!! The Critter Faces!!

I was so excited! I called her to say Thanks so much and she asked me what one I was going to use first and I told her the cute chick face!

So I thought it would be fun to make her a thank you card using the cute chick face!

Isn't she so stinkin' cute!!

Did you notice the stitching?? I dusted off my little ProvoCraft So Crafty Mini sewing machine and stitched!! I should have used a different color thread but I was afraid if I changed it I wouldn't figure out how to re-thread it!

My ugliest Paper and My Craft Space!

Here is the card I created using my ugliest paper:

I think it is the very odd shape... what is that? Every time I see it I think UGLY! And it is in so many of my packs just different colors!

I really Don't like this paper! To tell you the truth I think this paper ruined my cutie robot card!

Paper is from the Ugly Pile
Robot from Robotz
Stamps are from Joanne's

Now for something more pleasing to the eye! (well me eye anyway!) My fabulous craft space! I posted HERE about how my darling re-designed it for my Birthday while I was ill. And I still LOVE it! Everything has a place and everything is in reach!

Here are the current photos! Still so nice and clean and organized!
