Choo Choo All Aboard For Evan’s 1st Birthday!

I received a custom order for a Baby’s 1st Birthday Party!

I have to say of all the patterned baby paper, Martha Stewart still makes my absolute favorite, so I had to use it again!  I didn’t have enough sheets to make all the invites exactly the same so here are a few others:

Any time now I will run out of ideas for Valentine’s Day Card…

Any time now… lol. I like this card because I got to use the mini clothes line clips from the paper source. I added a little red heart for some bling!

Nine of Hearts

Guess how long it took me to design this card?

Over a year! In the last year, I’ve tried to design this card about 4 or 5 times without much success. (I got excited one day and bought a ton of these dimensional hearts which are so cute) However, this time I like the results!

These hearts are also great to put inside the card where you sign “Love.” Hopefully, I will get more inspiring ideas to use these cutie hearts.

Love Love Love.

The possibilities are endless with this Martha Stewart Valentine’s Day Paper!

I made another version that was smaller and with different colored twine and felt hearts:

My friend was asking me how long it usually takes me to make one card and I realized that one card actually takes me a few hours! Especially if I get stuck and cannot figure out color combos etc. I find that the first version of a card I make has little flaws here and there but I end up perfecting it after I’ve made version 2.0! After that, it is really quick and easy to make a card because I know what works.

There’s no such thing as too much pink! lol

Here is my pocket valentine’s day card. I don’t know why but I am on this pocket-tag craze! So I decided to put a little message on the tag that you can pull out!

Hello, I love you! lol

Be My Valentine!

I was inspired to make a few Valentine’s Day Cards…

Love is in the air! And thanks to Martha Stewart, I get to make all these cute cards.  I have to say patterned paper makes all the difference!  Also, I found a packet of Martha Stewart felt stickers that were perfect for this occasion.

Aren’t the little heart buttons absolutely adorable? The is my first time using felt cut outs and I love it.  So so so cute!

More to come!
