Wedding Card

Hi Everyone!!!

Sorry I haven't been posting much, I've been fighting with Provo Craft about my 2nd broken Cricut Imagine! :(  

But today I wanted to share with you a card I made using some 40:31 Creations stamps. I'm not sure if I like how it turned out... I like the idea, but my wet embossing got a little messed up, and I should have inked the edges of the sentiment first!!!

The layer the sentiment is stamped on was cut at 3.5" from Just Because Cards cartridge.
You can see the random spots where excess embossing powder got stuck :(

Have a great day!!

40:31 Creations Design Team Day

***Sooo sorry, I JUST realized that this never posted last week!!!***

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I have been MIA lately, I've been sick and recently started a night shift position, so trying to adjust but having to flop back and forth....yuck!!  Anyway, here is my card for this weeks 40:31 Creations Design Team post. It's been in the 60s for a few days (Wooohooo!!!) so I wanted to make something warm and summery.

This is just an A2 card, super simple. All the cuts were from scraps, love those days!
The watermelon was cut at 2.5" from Simply Charmed, I decided not to cut the face out on this one.

The stamp is from Lauren's Love stamp set.

Added some stickles to the watermelon for a little sparkle!

Hope you enjoyed this super simple card!

40:31 Creations Design Team Post -- Wedding Album Title Layout

Hi Everyone!

Today for the 40:31 Creations Design Team Post we were to make a scrapbook layout. I have been ready to start my Wedding scrapbook for a while and Lauren's new stamps were just the thing I needed to get started! For this layout I used a stamp from her Marriage Quotes stamp set, it fit PERFECT with the vision I had for the title page of our album! Here is a look at the layout:

I have to mention that these are NOT the photos that will actually be on the page, I didn't have those printed, so I just grabbed these for effect.
The green strip along the middle measures 4"x12"

These stamps produce high quality images and are the perfect size for scrapbook pages and captions for your photos.

All of the letters were cut from Opposites Attract.
"Our" was cut at 3"
Wedding was cut at 1" (no its not glued down bc it will overlap my pics a tad)
The date was cut at 2.5"

I hope you like it! I know I LOVE it and it was just the motivation I needed to get going on this album!!
I will share an updated picture once I get the right photos on here!!

Have a great day and a great weekend everyone!

Happy Birthday Card using Smiley Cards

Good Afternoon Everyone!!

Today I have a pretty simple birthday card that I realized I never posted. I made it a couple of months ago using the Smiley Cards cartridge. I love how it turned out!

The card base is 5.5 x 5.5 (5.5x11 piece of cardstock folded in half)
The yellow checkered layer is 5.25x5.25 that I had in my stash
The emoticon smiley was cut at 3.82 (sized on my Gypsy)
The thought bubble was cut at 1.35 and the Happy Birthday was cut at 1.59

Isn't it so cute and simple?!?!
Have a great day everyone!

Baby card with the Imagine

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy Baby card I made with my Imagine. LOVING the Imagine, makes it so easy to make quick cards/layouts that are completely coordinated. One thing I always hate is digging through all of my patterned paper trying to find stuff that coordinates, Imagine completely eliminates this!! 

I made this card for our friends who recently found out they are expecting! So excited for them!

This is a standard A2 size card.
The layer is a stock image from the Imagine cut at 4" and flood filled with a pattern from Imagine More.
The onsie was cut at 3.5" and also flood filled with Imagine More.

The stamp is from My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments" stamp set

Have a great day!

1st Ever 40:31 Creations Design Team Post!! And my 1st Ever Imagine Project!!

Hi Everyone!!!

What a crazy day here! Last night we got TONS of Ice!! My car was covered in about 1/4" coat of nothing but ice this morning! We are expected to get 2 more inches of this ice tonight...yikes!  Needless to say, I'm having lots of crafting time!!

Today I wanted to share with you my first project for Lauren's 40:31 Creations Design team showcasing her new Love stamps!!  They are awesome!! High quality clear stamps, they are super thick, so you don't have to worry about accidently ripping them! They come in great packaging and are as cute as can be! I just love them, can't wait to receive my other sets! Here is my project for the Design team post:

The Red heart was cut at 4.5" and flood filled with a pattern from Imagine More cartridge.
The heart is one of the Stock images on the Imagine
I used the Cut only option on my imagine and cut 2 Black hearts at 4.7" to make a card base.
I attached these with a brad that I colored black (it was previously blue)
The people were cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3"

 Here is a close up of Lauren's stamp!! They stamp awesome!!

The next card I made VERY quickly. The heart was the first print/cut I made with my Imagine, so I just made a quick card with it!

The heart was printed/cut at 3" and flood filled with a pattern from Imagine More.
Again, the heart is one of the stock images on the Imagine.
The card base measures 4x4 (a 4x8" piece of cardstock)
The base layer was cut at 3.5x3.5 from plain white cardstock that my image was printed on!

Here is another close up of one of Lauren's stamps!! 

Hope you like my projects!! Head on over to the 40:31 Creations Design team post to check out what the other designers made! Go visit everyone and leave them some comments, there are some awesome projects!

Have a great day!
