Favorites of 2011

December has not been a good month for me as far as blogging goes but I hope 2012 gets off to a better start than 2011 ended! In the meantime I thought that I would finish off this year by showing you my favorite cards from each month in 2011.

Gift card holder

I haven't had time to make any cards lately but I did make some gift card holders for a fundraiser a couple of weeks ago.

This is an easy card to make and a great way to use up some of those scraps! The gift card envelope is closed with a tiny magnetic snap. The Congrats on the first three cards is from a Cuttlebug die that I have had forever. I don't think it is available anymore but you might have it in your stash!

 This will be my last post until after the holiday so to all of you.

A Christmas card....and more

I still do not have my desktop back thus the shortage of blogs. In the meantime I have added a new member to my family.....a puppy!

Nutmeg is 4 months old and was adopted from the Humane Society.The pictures were taken with an i-phone at the Humane Society facility and Nutmeg was not being very cooperative!

I mailed most of my Christmas cards before I remembered that I hadn't taken pictures! This is one card I still have. The image was a free digi from Gina K. I colored some images with different colors but my favorite was this one.

I'm back...kinda

My desktop is still not fixed but I did download my photo editing program to my laptop so I am sort of in business again.
These are some cards I made for Dutch Paper Crafts using Marianne Designs ornament dies.

I also used a pop-up die to make this card.

For this easel card I used a small calendar to hold the card open.

For this book card the ornaments are cut from holographic paper and backed with pearl paper. The ornaments in the box are suspended on clear thread. I fixed the thread to the back of the ornaments with Scor-tape and poked small holes in the top and bottom of the box and threaded the thread through and fixed it with Scor- tape. As you move the card the ornaments jiggle and catch the light.

For the bell ornament I decided to make a wedding card instead of a Christmas card

I didn't realize that it has been so long since I updated my blog! My desktop computer where all my files and programs are is sick with a virus and the guy who fixes it has also been sick so I only have my laptop. I have lots to share but am unable to at the moment.
