Valentine mailboxes

I found these last year from Karen Foster but Valentine's had already passed so I got them out this year and made them up for my kids. I went and found a few little items that would fit inside and then lined'em up on the counter in the morning for them.

I personalized it for each one of them by adding a message to them on the back of the "I love YOU" card inside the mailbox. I also made a "free ice cream" certificate out of one of the other punch outs that came with it.

January's Sheetload

All of the following cards use January's Sheetload These were 2 quick baby cards we made, I love the new spiral punch from Stampin' Up! it's so cute I have been using it alot
I had this card in my stash so I thought I would send it along to a friend who is having a birthday soon.
Look how well the dollar stamp fit in that space, I couldn't have done better if I would have actually planned it that way.

random cards

Here are some cards I thought I would share, these have been made for awhile but I like them so here they are. This turtle card Savannah and I lifted from the Summer 2008 CTMH catalog (pg 57) we really thought it was cute and didn't have the exact stamp set so we cut out some turtles with our CRICUT. Then we foax stitched with a stamp set we did have. We left them blank so we can add the desired message.
I made this one probably over 2 years ago, I really like the simple-ness of it and the stitching around the cute patterned paper that I am sorry you cant see better :( Left these blank to add desired message.
I had found this stamp at Jo-Ann's and really wanted to use it so this is what I came up with, pretty simple but once you add a greeting then it will have a little more
And finally this cute little (birdie) card, this is from a SHEETLOAD but i only used about half of the squares it called for, you can find it here.

This "make a wish" card is the one I made to sign and give her the other cards are the ones I put inside for her to give away. I also included the envelopes.

This is the finished product, I also made a flower pen to go with it.

fun desk calendar

Thanks to Sister Sorensen for giving me this cute idea, I had to make several of course. Since I didn't have a computer I hand stamped all those little calendars, from Feb. to Dec. times 8!!! Thanks to Close to My Heart from coming out with an awesome calendar stamp WOHOO! Oh and these are made with the clear photo holders from the dollar store. very inexpensive!

get well card

There was a really cute card I saw in a card magazine and had to try it out. I loved the band-aid look for a get well card and it was really easy.
stamp is from studio g (Savannah gave it to me for my bday :0)
brown paper for band-aid is 3x1 or 3x1.25 (depending on the look your going for)
use a corner rounder and round corners. with a stylus and a ruler I scored to back of the paper as shown then on the front side the image was raised so I sanded it slightly with a file. take a 2nd brown paper and layer it under the embellished one. adhere to card. super easy!
