The first is a 2nd Birthday card for my friend's little girl. It's also a little sneak peak at the January kit :) The cupcake is cut & chalked from some of the kit paper.
SU! Chocolate Chip, SU! Pixie Pink, October Afternoon "Ducks in a Row", American Crafts "Forbidden Love"- paper; Scallop Edge Punch, Bazzill In Stitchz "Formal Flourish", green embroidery floss, circle cutter, corner rounder, Stampin' Pastels
To make the cupcake, I cut the cupcake out of the Forbidden Love paper in three colours (brown, dark pink & light pink). I cut the whole cupcake in brown, the topper & icing in the light pink & just the icing in the dark pink. I chalked each section with the matching colour & put them all together with pop-up dots.

I love the colours of this first one! Celery & Guava. This card was a lot of cutting! After stamping and cutting out the frame, I cut the mat free hand. I think this one's going to be for my grandma.

This card was fun because I love office themed items and tags are so much fun. You can hardly tell in the photo, but there's a reinforcement on the circle punched in the tag. I think that's my favorite item on the whole card :)
I ripped the edges of my Pink Pirouette & then moistened them. After it was adhered, I rolled up the edges all the way around. The flowers on the tag were paper pieced, which means I stamped the image in green onto the tag & then stamped it again in Rose Red on Pink Pirouette paper. Next I cut out just the flower parts & glued them over the original stamped image.
Old Olive, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla - paper; Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive - ink; Friends 24-7, All Holiday - stamp sets; piercing template, pink embroidery floss, Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Crop-a-Dile, 1/2" circle punch, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, blender pen - accessories;

Here is the instructions:
1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
2. Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder.
3. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.
4. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a commenton their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.
So I went into My Pictures and chose the 6th folder and the sixth photo . . . . . .and here it is.
My boys climbing a tree at Marina Park last September. They totally love that park & it's close enough to our house to walk. I have a whole group of great photos of them at the park. These photos will be part of my new video featuring April's "Fawnd of You" kit from www.createdwithpaper.com
And now to tag 6 others... I tag:
