Get Well Tissue Cover

With so many different illnesses and sniffles going around I thought I'd create a Get Well project.  Some time back I came across this great file for creating a cover for the pocket packs of Kleenex and I saved it not knowing when or if I'd ever really use it.  Well, this past weekend I decided to dust it off and put it to use.  If you'd like to get your own copy of this file visit Jamiek711 Designs' blog here.
For my cover I decided to use this ever so cute Get Well Wishes file from Marjorie Ann Designs.  I mean seriously, how much more perfect could this mouse with his own box of Kleenex be for this project? 
The only hard part about this was deciding what paper to use.  After looking through several of my mat stacks I settled on one from DCWV titled All About Girls.  My stamped sentiment is from the Say it Big stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.
I'm entering this into the following challenge.

You're Sweet

It's the beginning of a new week and that means it's time to go back to work and the real world while leaving my craft room behind.  Sad I know but at least I was able to enjoy myself over the weekend and get a good bit of paper crafting done.
So with that said, I wanted to start the week of by sharing this adorably cute Valentine I put together using the Cupid Cutie file at Marjorie Ann Designs.  Not only are the 'cupids' in this file all cute as can be but they are super easy to piece together!  That of course helped to make this yet another quick and easy card.   Especially since I also had pre-embossed card blank from DCWV that was just perfect for showcasing this cutie.
The stamped sentiment is from the recently released Lollipops Galore stamp set from Jaded Blossom.

Cupid is Stupid

Hurray for the weekends and being able to just sit in my craft room and play away.  I've been able to get several cards and projects completed already.  But before I take a brief break to get some housework done I wanted to share my first ever ANTI- Valentine with you.
Jaded Blossom recently had their January stamp release party and when I saw the Cupid is Stupid stamp set I couldn't resist.  I wasn't sure what I'd actually do with it.  All I knew was that I had to have it and so I made the purchase.
After several days of trying to decide what to do while reading and re-reading the sentiments I finally got the idea to create a card that looked like someone was targeting in to shoot cupid.  Then I remembered this angry cupid file over at SVG Cutting Files and thought he was perfect.  After all what cupid would be happy to see that someone has a target on him?
Where did the target come from?  That's from the Cricut cartridge Outdoor Man.
Oh and here's what I decided to do for the inside of my card.  After stamping the sentiment and heart on the inside I realized that I smeared a small spot of the ink so I went back and stamped the pins individually, cut them out and layered them back on.  I then took a bit of red Smooch and painted the heads of the pins.
And there you have it.  My first - but certainly not the last - of my Anti-Valentine's Day Cards.
Now I'm off to go enter this card into the Anything for Your Valentine challenge at SVG Cutting Files.  Challenge ends February 14th.

Easter Bonnet

So I bought this new stamp set titled Happy Easter from My Craft Spot during her store closing and as soon as it arrived I just had to play with it.  Luckily I found this great bunny all dressed up for Easter and I knew she was just perfect to go with this sentiment.
Where did I find this adorable bunny you ask?  Why from Too Cute by Jessica of course.  It's one of the several great cuts you'll find in her Easter Bunnies and Chicks file.  And if you hurry you just might find that she's still running her 90% off sale.
In addition to the great svg file I also used a smidge of my Cricut.  Yep, the grass was cut using the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.
And there you have it.  My first Easter card for the year.


Today I have a quick and easy Valentine to share with you.  For this one I used another of the adorable files over at Marjorie Ann Designs.  If you have been to this website yet you have got to check it out.  This particular file is called Sealed with a Kiss.
My card itself is from DCWV and came already embossed so that meant half of my work was done for me.  All I merely had to do was find papers that complimented each other and piece it all together.
My SWAK sentiment is from the Fresh Squeezed Stamp set titled Envelope Please.
Not to bad for a quick and easy card huh?

Zombie Valentine

As a huge fan of the Walking Dead I couldn't pass up the opportunity to incorporate at least one zombe into a Valentine's Day card this year.  Now I didn't want any of the gore that comes with the show and 'typical' zombies but I did want the fun.  So what better cuts to use than these adorable zombies from Too Cute by Jessica?
I fell in love with these guys back over the Halloween season but when I remembered about the one zombie holding his heart in his hand I was like, yep - that's the one.  After all isn't that what Valentine's Day is about?  Giving your heart and love to someone?
Other than the zombie file the only other cut I used for my card was the grass and that is from the Cricut cartridge Sports Mania.
My sentiment is just one that I printed on my background paper.  That's right, no stamps were used in the making of today's card.  But don't you worry because they were used on the next one.  LOL
Have a great day everyone!

Jester's Shoe Treat Holder

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another PDE Linky Party.  Today our design team has created some wonderful 3D projects for you and we're hoping that you'll come play along with us.
For my project I decided to jump a little bit ahead of Valentine's Day and create something for Mardi Gras.  The cut file I used is from the Santa's Helpful Elves file at SVG Cuts.  I picked up some metallic paper in shades of green, purple and yellow so that I can change this elf shoe to a Mardi Gras jester's shoe.
To complete the show I adhered some purple eyelash yarn along the opening edge and then added some tinseled pom poms in green and purple.
Then I baked some chocolate chip cookies, placed them in the shoe and gave it to one of my physical therapists who absolutely loved it.
So now, let's see what 3D magic you can create.  You know you can do it.  So come on, create your project, link up and play along with us.  Need more inspiration?  No worries.  Hop on over to the PDE Linky Party blog and check out the other great designs the team put together just for you.

I am entering this treat holder in to the following challenge:
