Happy Thursday! Just wanted to share with you all that Your Memories Here is sponsoring this week's Sketchy Thursdays challenge. So pop on over, take a peek at the sketch and play along for a chance to win some scrappy goodies. Their sketches are a great starting point to get those creative juices flowing.
It's Thursday, so it's Karli, sharing a project that I saw at the Provo-Craft Booth at CHA. I totally fell in love with one of the projects on this table:
Here's my version:
Cuttlebug folders- Fleur de Lis. Then I simply added some bling for my name & added a bling crown to embellish that's fit for a queen ;) . So super easy, but it looks awesome!
Here's the liner alone:
Thanks for peeking! Hope you have a golden day!

Hello everyone and happy Sunday... here is a simple Birthday card I made just using three items. A great card to make if you don't have much time and need a quick birthday card.
I created this sweet and simple card using Birds and Swirls A2 Embossing Folder
a Prima Flower and New from Prima Marketing pearls and crystals accents for the flower center.

Here is the birthday card I made for my hubby (yesterday was his 34th birthday). He's a no frills kind of guy so I kept it clean and simple (but oh how I wanted to add Stickles and flowers) This is a 6"x6" card and the little rounded squares are 1- 3/4" cut on my Cricut with George and basic shapes. I stamped each square with the Imaginisce "Piece of Cake" stamps (there are 3 designs in this set. The middle square is from another set that i threw in to change it up a bit. I inked all the edges with the same color as what I had stamped to help them "pop" of the background. I "borrowed" Karli's idea and added a button to the center of each circular "happy birthday" stamp. I lucked out and just happened to have buttons to match each color , cuz the buttons were an after thought ;)
Hope you have a great week end and don't forget to enter your scrapbook page in the February Share Your Memories Here contest. Today is the last day to link up!

My mom's birthday is on Monday so to celebrate, I made her a little coupon book to go along with her presents. This coupon book was cut out using the Cricut Mother's Day cartridge, which is available in store here.
The Mother's Day cartridge is a GREAT cartridge and it has many great cuts on it that could be used for any occasion, like the little coupon book cuts.
All my pieces were cut out at 2inches with the REAL SIZE DIAL button OFF (not lit up!). That made the cover and the pages all fit together nicely.
The green piece is actually bound to my book and there are perforated lines so that you can rip the coupons out as needed.
Since my mother's birthday isn't until Monday, I can't post the full details on my own blog until Monday (she occasionally takes a peek at my blog and I would hate to ruin the surprise! LOL)

It's Karli, with a simply sweet little project to share with you today. Remember this card I shared last week?
Well, this little box
a Hostess Cupcake!
I used the Snag 'Em stamps from the Piece of Cake set on the lid. The insides of each circle are glittered. The sentiments were cut on my Cricut with the Wild Card Cart. I tied Pebbles Ribbon around the lid and the candle.
Here they are together:
I'll have a video tutorial on my blog later this week if you're interested. Thanks for peeking at my little project. Hope you have a sweet weekend!

That leaves me with the decision of how to fill her Tuesday posting spot. At this moment I'm thinking "Monthly Guest Designer". I'll be posting more about this later, when I figure out all the details.

So many of us around the country are getting a ton of snow this year, and where I am is no different. One evening we brought a little bit of the cold stuff in and had fun making this little snowman that the kids later ate :) I used Don Juan and A Child's Year Cricut cartridges and some pretty silver Dew Drops as well as a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I hope you are staying warm and I sure do hope spring comes soon!

Snag 'em Piece of Cake stamp set. This set comes with 3 stamps, and my favorite is this happy birthday circle. I added some buttons that fit perfectly in the center. Each button is embellished with a Prima flower (Sweet & Sassy Collection) & bling. There are so many little things you can add to the center like flowers, bling, candy, even coins! At $1 or less, you have to Snag 'em fast! Thanks for peeking!

This layout came about because I want to treausre what my 5 year old son tells me each time I leave out the back door. He says " I l ove every piece of your heart." :) It just make me smile and melt. I used my Cricut to cut out the heart and all the pieces for the words, even the ones I stamped on. I used my 12 x 12 mat to cut these out. I wanted to keep this simple and focus on the sweet saying. On the heart I will put a picute of my son and me.

If there was just one word to sum up what I feel for my family that would be it: LOVE. This is an older picture that I finally got around to scrapping, hard to believe it was taken Thanksgiving Day 2008!! I used a whole bunch of goodies you can go grab at the Your Memories Here store. The flowers are Prima, Pebbles ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing edge folder, Rosey Nook paper and my favorite, Dew Drops. The butterfly was cut with my Cricut using A Child's Year. I love this butterfly but the cut isn't available as just the butterfly, only as a card, but I got the idea to just make a very small "card" glue the to halves together, and viola! you've got yourself a very pretty butterfly cut:) I hope you are enjoying your Monday, come visit me on my blog too:) Paper Blossoms...see you next week!
