Onsises for baby shower

I have to say that I am in love with the heat transfer vinyl!

 We are having a baby shower for a co-worker on Friday, check out what I made for her.

I used the star from George and Basic Shapes and added the "rock" from the alphabet on Nate's ABCs. You must do a kiss cut like you do for other vinyl and you must flip your image or it will go on backwards when you iron it on! Expressions Vinyl has a great tutorial on their website- Heat Transfer Tutorial

This rocket is on the Blast Off Imagine cartridge. I printed and cut out using printable iron on paper from Avery. Super simple but very cute!

Thanks for looking- I will post more after the baby shower!

Scrapbook Page

This page is one I did of my daughter. She is growing up so fast but sometimes I still see the little girl in my big girl.

The title was cut on the Cricut but I do not remember the cartridges I used. All the paper is from My Mind's Eye.

Cardstock is from Bazzill. Label is one of the pre-loaded images on the Imagine that I flooded with a pattern from the Yummy cartridge. The Love stamp is from Basic Grey.

Grandpa's Birthday card

My father-in-law is a true cowboy, he loves his boots, hat, Wranglers, and guns. I made this birthday card especially for him.

 The cards are from a clip are file and I typed the sentiment on the computer. I used Smooch pearl ink for the heart and diamond then topped them off with Diamond Glaze.

The inside sentiment was typed on the computer too and the gun is from a clip art file. 
He won a shooting championship when he was in the military so he is an excellent shot and Mom always teases him about beating him at Rummy so the whole card was a bit of an inside joke.
I know you can't see it so well in the photo but, the cards are mounted on an Action Wobble. This makes them pop up and move when you shake the card!

Dad loved the card and mom thought it was hilarious.

Twinkle-Twinkle Baby Card

Here is a baby card I made for my niece.

The moon is from October 31st and is cut at 3". I used the sprayer to add a couple different shades of yellow to give it some depth then sprayed it with some Glimmer Mist.I also mounted the yellow moon on navy paper and popped it up with foam dots for depth.

The sentiment is from Nursery Rhymes and is cut at 2".I used sickles on the stars for some shine.

I cut the background paper at 5.25" x 4" and used the scallop punch at the bottom and embossed it with Swiss Dots before adhering it to the base.

All the paper and ribbon is from SU!  The embossing folder is from Sizzix.

First Post

This is my first ever post, thank you for taking a look.

This page was created to document the bond between my daughter and our dog. Hanna nicknamed our dog Bud-Bud, he is 14 years old so we know he will not be with us for many more years.

I used my Gypsy to weld the paw prints for the boarder and cut it at 2". The title is from Ashlyn's Alphabet and was cut at 1.5". The heart is from George and Basic Shaped and was cut at 2".

The heart is popped up with foam dots and blinged out with my I-Rock.

Patterned paper is from DCWV Linen stack and solid is from Bazzill.
