Baby Boy Forest Friends

Hey there!

Today's card was created for my niece who will be having her baby (boy) shower this weekend.

The theme is "Forest Friends", and I decided to add a leftover diecut from the diaper cake, (scroll down), to her card to keep the theme going.

It was fairly easy to create...just some different colored mats, the sentiment, and I popped up the diecut using foam-adhesives for added dimension.

Thanks for visiting!

Cardstock:  SU Dusty Durango Textured, brown, beige
DP: Paper Pizzazz "Barnwood"
Stamp:  Inkadinkado
Ink: Rubber Stampede
Other: diecut, foam-adhesives

Forest Friends Diaper Cake

Happy Tuesday!

Instead of posting a card today, I decided to share with you a diaper cake I created for my niece's upcoming baby shower this Saturday.

I LOVE making these!  
They're not that difficult, and not only can it be used as a centerpiece, but the mom-to-be is really appreciative of all the diapers she'll have on hand when the baby arrives.

I used a plastic-cake-platter (from the Dollar Tree), 70 newborn diapers, rubberbands (on each diaper), 2 baby bottles for the middle (4 oz. & 8 oz.), burlap & satin ribbons, the forest animals are diecuts, and I topped it off with a hedgehog stuffed animal from Hobby Lobby for $3, and just some filler in between each layer.

Here is a link on "how to make a diaper cake", with instructions and items needed. 

...and here's another one I made a few years ago...
Thanks for stopping by today, 
have a great day!

Get Well Soon!

Hey y'all!
Thanks for taking the time to pop in today!

Today's creation took quite a bit of time, as not only did I stamp the flower image onto the white cardstock, but I also stamped it again, then cut out each bloom and popped them up using foam-adhesives to add dimension.

I think it turned out nice, 
and is sure to cheer up anyone who's feeling under the weather.

Have a great day!

Well hello there, it's been a while!

Hey y'all!

Wow, it's been almost 3 years since I've posted, 
and so much has happened.

Sadly, my Mom passed away unexpectedly in April last year, and I've been at a loss...trying to recoup from losing her.

In an effort to help with my grief, I've been busy back in my scrap-room, creating cards.  I must admit, it truly is great therapy.  The card above was created for one of my dear friend's birthday 
(she is also a card-creator, so I'm sure she'll appreciate it)!

I hope all of you are doing well, and I'll be hopping over to your blogs to see what you've been creating as well.

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
