Wedding Card 0001

This past year was full of babies and weddings.  I enjoyed making this wedding cake card.  I bought a 12 x 12 die cut sheet to create the white layer.  I am still debating a die cutting system of my own. 

  • die cut paper
  • flower punch
  • pearls with adhesive

Greeting Card 0001

I decided to create some "just because" greeting cards.  One of my best friends live in another country and the other two live more than 2 hours away.  I have other friends that I often think of but also never get to really see.

I think they'd be excited to find cute cards in their mailbox instead of junk mail.  

For the "hello" tag, I used a stamp that had the phrase once.  I used the same stamp three times for the effect.  


  • Flower punches
  • Journal tag punch
  • Stamp and ink

Invitation 0003 (Baby Shower)

My sister in law was on Baby #3.  She already has 2 boys and she lucked out having a girl for #3.  She initially didn't want a shower.  Our friends thought it would be nice to throw her a shower since she's having her first girl.  We decided on a small girls only shower.  

I knew that she wasn't crazy for pink.  Purple has been used for many of the past showers that we have been to.  I found coordinating wrapping paper with bright polka dots and plaid.  I knew I was going to make a lot of paper decorations, so I figured that the most inexpensive way to buy lots of cute paper was to buy wrapping paper.  It worked out very well!

  • Wrapping paper
  • Circle and button punch

Invitation 0002 (Wedding)

This was my very first wedding invitation that I created.  

It was a beautiful Indian and Mexican wedding.  The bride is a coworker and close friend of mine.  She chose gold and purple as her theme colors.  She requested a simple and elegant invitation.  

I printed the information on cardstock and handstamped and embossed the corner designs.

  • Stamp and ink
  • Rhinestones
  • Corner round punch 
  • Clear embossing powder
  • Embossing heat gun
