Birthday Wishes Inspired by Pinterest

I'm always looking for the quick and easy card.  My friend Jenn pinned a card on Pinterest and I thought hmmmm quick ... easy ... yes and done.  So I broke out the Spellbinders and a Cuddlebug embossing folder and went to work.  I colored the cupcake with Copics.
Yes there are things I can improve on but it's quick and easy.
Copics used:  icing... YG11,YG13,YG23; leaves....YG01,YG03; wrapper.... B06,B04,B06; cherry.... R24,R27 and a little #37 for the twig.

Merry Christmas

Here's a quick look at what I made the teachers at school.  Yes, I actually made Christmas gifts on time this year.  I used Martha Stewarts halloween test tubes (bought them after halloween and paid next to nothing for them).  I used her Christmas papers from last year (also on sale).  The reindeer and snowflake are both quickutz dies (vixen and snowflake).  I used a template and cut the test tube holders with regular cutter and used scorpal to score.  Circle cut with 1" circle punch.  Added stickles to hat.

Masculine Birthday

Another last minute card :)  Used Gina K designs stamp set.  This was for one of my husband's friends.  I used Copics for dimension on the toilet seat.

Happy Birthday Aunt Jean!

I do so much last minute.  Someday, I keep telling myself, I'll be organized enough to do things in advance instead of at the last second.  I know... I'm funny.  It's hard to change.  I should have done better but then again ... last minute. 

I really needed ribbon or something on the front to complete it but I had simply ran out of time.  I love the look on their face when they open it up.  I colored with Copics.  The smudge on the bottom of the card was me "erasing" our signatures using Photoshop CS4.

50th Anniversary

August was a fast paced month.  My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  It's awful how few designs there are out there for decorations.  I ended up making my own decorations.  But now I've realized I didn't take pictures of half the stuff I made.  I just got so busy trying to get everything together and then keeping food and drinks out ... I just didn't get the pics.  Maybe my brother took some so I can post more later.  I used cricut cartridges.  I'll probably have to name them later.
Gift bag for cards for my parents.
The flowers are sparkling gold paper.
I also made a tuxedo bag for table decorations (forgot to take pictures).  I have a picture on my phone but I'll have to deal with that later.

Finally ;) Triangular Treat Boxes

I've had this idea to do for my son's birthday but I was not looking forward to cutting everything out and folding and such.  If I was only making a few that would be different.  I needed to make 30.  I saw the preview of the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge.  There it was ... a triangle gift "bag".  I could cut these out on my cricut and be done!  I know... I have Make the Cut that still works.  Honestly, the cricut cuts better and faster with their own products.  I have my eyes on some other cutters but I'm not getting rid of my cricut (too much investment). 
I cut the triangle box out at 7in.  At some point in time my arm hit the dialer and went up to 7.5 (luckily not too many cut that size).  I then decorated the triangle with Inky Antics Fish and Duck maker stamp set.  It's part of their triangle treat box.  I tried doing the duck but the triangle that I made didn't look good.  I think the duck would have needed a party hat or something so he wouldn't have a pointed head.  The fish came out great.  It didn't hold a lot but I'm cheap so it worked out in my favor :).

I added googly eyes.  I think they turned out pretty cute.  Yes, I should have added glitter but this was an outdoor boy party.
Up next is my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party.  I'm going to try to make a tuxedo gift bag and the dress one that's on the Artiste cartridge.  So far I likey :)
