Throwback Thursday

Throwback Food Challenge!

I made this cupcake card using the Sweet Treats cartridge. I used pink floss to wrap around the black scalloped circle. I love the pink paper especially since it is has a pretty sheen to it.

Throwback Thursday with Emma!

The challenge for this week on Emma's blog was to create a Christmas themed card using the Celebrations cartridge. I do not own this cart so I chose the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I used the tree from the cart. I used my Gypsy to creat the layout. I also used my i-rock to place the gems onto the tree. I just love my i-rock.

I am so happy that Emma extended the challenges a couple of days, since it would have been impossible to have gotten it done before today. It is hard to believe that tomorrow is November 1st. It is time to start thinking about the holidays. Have a great week.

Throwback Thursday "Sports Theme"

My oldest daughter plays varsity volleyball. I thought that this card would be perfect for her. I cut the volleyball from the Everyday Paper Dolls cart. I welded the word spike on my Gypsy. The most fun was using my new irock tool. It is so fun and easy to use.

Throwback Thursday!

The challenge for Throwback Thursday this week is to create an animal card. I used the zebra from Everyday Paper Dolls. I used my gypsy to weld the card and I cut the base of the card with white cardstock. For the front of the card I used black and white patterned paper for the zebra. I used pink stickles to outline the lines in the zebra pattern.

Puppy Card

I made this puppy card from Everyday Paper Dolls for my nephew who turns one soon. I got the idea from Emma at My Creative Time. I used Papertrey Ink cardstock.

Throwback Thursday with Emma!

For the Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma I used Stampin' Up cardstock for the base, the other solid colors are from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from Cloud 9 Design. I used a stamp for my image from Fresh Cuts by Stampin' Up . I love the fall colors.

Throwback Thursday
To make my jack-o-lantern card I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I welded the base of the card using my gypsy, then I layered the top of the card. The image was cut at 5 inches. The stem is cut in green and then I added glitter glue to the jack-o-lantern.

Birthday Cards

I had a few birthday cards that I needed to get sent out. I especially love how the cow card turned out. The idea for that one came from Emma at My Creative Time.

Now that I am back teaching, my time to create is very limited, plus my three children are involved in fall sports, therefore my husband and I are usually busy attending sporting events. Thank goodness for the weekend to get some down time to create. Have a great rest of the weekend.

Emma's Throw Back Thursday "Back to School"

I used my Gypsy to create this card. I used "#1 Teacher" from Wild Card, and I used the apple and notebook die cuts from Gypsy Wanderings. I doodled around the edges of the images.

Here are a few projects that I have been working on. The first project is a memo pad-pen holder that I made to give as a small gift to my fellow co-workers at Christmas time. I was real happy with the results. The idea is from Made by Momo.

The next project is a gift that I created for my Great Aunt who has her 70th Jubilee this weekend. I used to create the layout of the descriptive words. I want to put it into a frame yet. The Create-A-Critter owl card is for my Great Aunt as well. The outside says You are... and inside it says amazing! Congratulations!

The "Hello Foxy" card was for my husband on his birthday. He really liked this card. I sometimes find it challenging to create cards for men.

I finally got my Gypsy back. Provocraft was very good about replacing my Gypsy since it didn't power on anymore. Now I have it replaced and I am enjoying it. Only three weeks and I am back to teaching. I am not quite ready to back in the classroom yet. Until then I am going to enjoy crafting as much as I can.

Throwback Thursday

This is my first challenge that I have ever participated in. I used the Pinwheel card and envelope on page 51 of the Wild Card cartridge. On the wheel part of the card I stamped different sentiments.

USA Chipboard Book

A family friend is becoming a US citizen tomorrow, and this is the card/book that I created for him. I used my Gypsy to weld the USA letters to the rectangle. I then used my Bind-it-All to put it together.

I love reading other blogs, so I was inspired to get my own blog going. I would love to get busy with creating some paper crafting challenges and then post them.
