Throwback Thursday Challenge

This is my entry for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge at  I don't have the Walk in my Garden Cartridge so I used Create a Critter, Paper Dolls for Everyday and Gypsy Wonderings.

Here is my card:

5 x 7 Base Cardstock from Bazzill Limeade
PKS - Large Sun Stamp - Colored with Copics (Y06, YR02, YR18, R20)
         - Snow Cuties
Stamp Sentiment is from My Creative Time "Mom You Rock"

Cloud size @ 3 inches (PaperDolls for Everyday)
Flowers size @ 2.5 inches (Create a Critter)
Grass size @ 2.0 inches (Gypsy Wondering)
I also chalked around the clouds and the flowers.  I then used my signo pen to dot around the flowers and on the sun's cheek, this is my first time doing this with the pen and I actually love just how much the project comes alive with this little detail.

Okay so this is my first every try at Paper Piercing and for me it was hard but I gave it my best.  I used Charlotte with a Rose as my image.   I really really love the combination of Pink and Brown.  It's my favorite.  I wrote in 4U in the tag of the rose and the stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Scrapbook Pages

This is a little bit hard for me to do because this is the first time I am actually scrapbooking pages for a baby boy, my baby boy.  Yes, I know I have 2 older ones but shame on me I just really started my scrapbooking when my daughter was born so my older boys pictures are in an album.  I was going to work my way up and work on my 7 year olds album this year since I had his pictures transferred digitally by Ritz Camera but, we had a baby instead so that is on hold again. LOL.  Let me know what you guys think.  I used Teresa Collins Line Chic Baby Boy.

On this one I used the Cricut-New Arrival Cartridge and my Gypsy to cut a circle on her Belly.  I really wasn't thinking when I made this because I was in a hurry I just wanted it done before I had Alex.

This is my Belly Shot.  I didn't even know that my daughter was kissing my belly.  Would you believe that this picture was taken by my 7 year old?  He has a good eye for photography I tell you.

This picture was actually taken in the hospital by their resident photographer.  She taught she over exposed it but I thought the picture was perfect.

I cut the flower on this with my cricut.  I forgot which cartridge I used, sorry :{  It's hard to write everything down right now when you still have a newborn crying and a 2 year old whining constantly, I am just rushing through it.  

 I cut the scallop on my cricut too.  Again, I don't know which cartridge I used since I have everything on my Gypsy and I delete as I go.  The brads on the flowers are from a pack I got awhile back from We R Memory Keepers.  All the bling and pearls you see are from Prima.  This picture was taken using my iphone.  I love this phone, I always wonder how I managed without it.

Day 7 Papertrey Ink Tag & Frame Challenge

Yeah I got to join the challenge again.  The kids are off school today so my oldest one is helping me take care of the baby.  He is so sweet.  Okay so I just notice that I definitely need to buy some Papertrey Ink Tags and Frames because I didn't know that I didn't have any and they are a must have.

This is what I created for the challenge:

Tag size is 5.25 x 2.625
DP Unknown
I used my nesties to for the frame and and the stamped image.
The stamped image is from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits.
I just swiped some blue ink all over the tag and frames to make it pop.
The stamped sentiment is the first stamp that I ever bought and I believe it's from Inkadinkado.  So I used watermark and embossed it with sky blue embossing powder that I have in my stash.
The ribbon is from Michaels.

Day 5 Papertrey Ink Color Challenge

First I want to say that I am so bummed that I couldn't participate on the whole challenge it is so hard with a newborn who wants to eat every chance he gets.  But he decided to give me a little break and let me put him down on his bouncer and this is what I made.  I was thinking early in the wee morning while feeding and playing with my iphone (since this is the only time I get to check out the other blogs I follow)  how I wanted this card to look like, I hope it turned out well:

All Supplies used are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

A2 Card Size 5.5 x 4.25 in Pure Poppy
1" Border using Rasberry Fizz
1" Border using Vintage Cream
Stamped Image and Sentiment used are from Year of Flowers: Roses (I love Roses)
I stamped them with Versamark and decided to Emboss the Rose with white embossing powder.  (I still haven't gotten the hang of embossing without leaving a little bit of specks on it, for some odd reason the dryer sheet technique that I read doesn't work on me :{:{:{) If anyone knows a better technique I surely appreciate you sharing.
Punch used Stampin Up
Ribbon and Bling from Michaels

Male Birthday Card

Here is a male birthday card that I made awhile ago:

Cricut Cartridge - Wrap it Up
Card is 5 x 7
