Thank you

Here is a thank you card I made for my recent birthday! It took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted on it but love the butterfly on it!

I used purple cardstock for the card base and border punched strip! I used The Luxury Stack By DCWV for the pinkish purple patterned paper and butterfly! Then added some white stitching! Sentiment is from Pink By Design.

At first I was going to create another rosette wreath but then saw a wreath similar to this and had the idea ready to go! I LOVE my Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and couldn't wait to make some flowers!

Here is my wreath!
I chose some multi colored orange, creme, and gold colored yarn from my stash and a straw wreath from Michaels!

I cut out
I cut flowers from Art Philosophy and chalked the edges.
I adhered them to the wreath with a pearl stick pin.

Placed my papers and cut them accordingly!

I added an acorn and some pearl pen!

Remembering 9/11

Hello! This week for SweetSassyDiva we are honoring the HEROES of 9/11. That day has changed our country and will always be remembered. I remember exactly where I was the day I saw the Twin Towers on TV. It was a sad day for so many. I have many family members that have served or are currently serving in various branches of the military and I choose to support them all. I am very patriotic and thought that I would love to make a patriotic wreath! I was inspired by Pink Cricut's Halloween wreath. Click here if you would like to see it (She has an awesome video tutorial on it!)

Here is my wreath:

I cut my paper into various strips and scored them on my score board every .5 inches.  I used these to make the rosettes. Be careful of HOT glue!! It can make for very sore fingers.
I hot glued my rosettes to my cardboard circle. I have them layered for more dimension!
I added stars from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge cut in various sizes.
I added red and blue buttons on the stars. Some of the buttons have the airmail twine in them.

I love how my wreath turned out and can't wait to make another one! Make sure you come back and check out more of the SweetSassyDiva Designers this week for more inspiration!

Grandparents Day

Hello again!  This week the SweetSassyDiva Design team has created projects in honor of Grandparents day! I decided to make a card that resembled a quilt for my Grandma Rose! She makes the most amazing quilts I have ever seen. I want to have everyone that she makes but understand I have to share with the rest of my family!........sigh........ well on to my card!

I cut nine 1.5 inch squares from the Mango Frost DCWV stack and 4.75 inch square of matching orange pattern paper.

I adhered the squares to the yellow pattern paper in a simple quilt pattern.

I then added the card front to a pink square cut at 5 inches.

Here is the card base for the easel card. It measures 5inches by 10 inches. I score it at 5 inches and 7.5 inches.
I added the yellow pattern paper to the card base and added a sentiment from Pink By Design. The Butterflies are from Kate's ABC's. Also added some white faux stitching!
Here is a side view of the card!

I hope you like my card! Don't forget to check back this week and see what the rest of the Design team has created for more inspiration!

National Apple Week/ I love my Teacher Blog Hop Day 2

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the I love my Teacher Blog Hop! 

     If you just came to my blog and want to start at the beginning click here to see Abby's Amazing Project! If you just came from Karla you are in the right spot!

Originally this project was for my entry for the Sweet Sassy Diva Design team. We are making projects in honor of  National Apple Week! I love apples! Apples are a popular kitchen or classroom theme and are just plain cute! I am always making lists and decided to decorate a notepad for the fridge with apples. I chose red because they are my favorite! Here is my project:

I placed my apple layers by colors in the corners of my Gyspy. Apple is from Doodlecharms cartridge. 
I placed scrap paper in the corners for each layer.
I cut the top for the notepad at 4.5 inches by 5 inches and ran it through my paper crimper.
I glued the pattern paper on the top of the notepad.
I placed three strips of magnet on the back of the notepad to ensure it stays put!
Last, I placed the notepad on my fridge ready for lists!
I hope you liked my Apple Notepad! They are quick and fun gift to make for friends or family. 
Make sure you come and say hi on my facebook page and check back each day to see what the other awesome SweetSassyDiva Design team members create!
