365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#213, 214 Thank You Cards Blog Hop

***If you are looking for my Flaunt It Friday's Project Click HERE or scroll down***

Hello everyone and welcome to the Thank You Cards Blog Hop! If you are here from Jennifer's Blog

http://creativearmywife.blogspot.com/  than you are in the right spot. If you just started the hop and would like to start at the beginning then please go to Crafty Card Gallery http://www.craftycardgallery.blogspot.com/. I am so happy to be part of this hop because I have never done a hop all about Thank You cards and it's something that I always need to have on hand. Now onto my project:

I decided to make 2 Thank You cards with my forgotten cartridge....Hoot N Holler! I love that cart so much and I don't know why I don't get to use it more often I guess because there are so many cute carts that keep coming out and I think I have way too many options LOL! Here is the girl owl I stamped her face with my favorite owl face stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps Critter Faces XL. I used my Gypsy to hide all of the little pieces so that I could stamp the faces. For the beaks I put a white gel pen...let it dry and went over it with a yellow marker. I stamped the sentiment and put some bling on her belly because I think this bird is pregnant by her husband below......I think she got pregnant here in the wood's (The patterned paper I used!)LOL!Now here is her husband!!

For Mr. Lover owl LOL! I also cut him from Hoot N Holler, stamped the sentiment and also stamped his face with 2 DIFFERENT face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps Critter Faces XL. I stamped the glasses part seperate and stamped the beak part seperate, I also did the same technique on his beak as the other card.

Here is my 100% hand made envelopes! I cut the envelopes, the actual card base, and all of the scallop sqaures from the Slumber Party Cartridge I LOVE that cart by the way!! I used my ATG gun to adhere the envelope and I cut it on plain computer paper! I stamped the same sentiment on the envelope. These cards and envelope are around a 4x4 inch size.

On the inside of the envelope I put this adhesive square thing I dont know what its called, I just know I got a whole bunch of them from Big Lots. All you have to do is peel off the blue part and it has a very strong permanent bond.

Here is the two lovebirds together with their baby on the way LOL! Aren't they such a cute couple I thought they were so cute that I didnt want to put them on my cards I wanted to use them on a layout! Hmmmm maybe I will next time!

For my blog candy I am Giving away a Brand New in Package Zig 2 way glue pen all you have to do is BE a FOLLOWER and then tell me your favorite moment in 2010, I will draw a Random Winner sometime on Monday Jan.3rd. Please check back tonight at midnight or sometime this weekend for my sister's blog hop that I will be in right here you won't want to miss it! My favorite memory of 2010 was when I went on my 1st Cruise EVER! WE went earlier this year on a 7 NT cruise to the Mexico, we stopped in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, it was me, my hubby and my son (he was 2 at the time). I will never forget that trip it was a life changing experience and I loved being so spoiled and pampered by all of the staff they were excellent!
 Here's some photos from my trip!

Yep that's a real Donkey!!-Puerto Vallarta Mexico

I am in love with the owls on all the cartridges. This card is fabulous.

Heather said...

Great cards and I LOVE the Zig glue pen. I use mine all the time and always have one on stand by. My fave memory from 2010 was meeting my sister for the very first time!! (We have the same biological father.) I am 34 and she is 25 and we had never met. She found out about me when she was 11 but I had always known about her (and my brothers). To make a VERY LONG story short... we started talking on Facebook earlier this year and this past July we met for the first time. (She lives in WI and I am in CO) We just cried and cried. We had a great time getting to know eachother. It is a memory of a lifetime.

We have the same biological father. We started chatting on Facebook earlier this year and finally met in June. We picked her up at the airport and when we saw eachother we just hugged forever cried and cried. (My son said "I thought that only happened in the movies.")Now we can't imagine our lives without each other.
