Disney/Pixar Car Birthday Cards

Hi all,

 Today I made two Disney/Pixar Cars birthday cards using the Cricut cartridge.  My grandson is turning 3 this week and wants a Cars birthday party.  He loves the movie and playing with the little cars and trucks. Of course Lightning Mc Queen is his favorite.  I made two cards, one to mail for his actual birthday and one to give him at his party.  The cards are both 5×7.   I am glad I have the cartridge and book to see how this car goes together.  It is a little tricky.  Once I made the first, the second was a lot easier.  I cut both cars out at 3.75 inches.  Anything smaller would have been too difficult to assemble as there are several very small pieces.   The image is measured top to bottom and was the largest measurement I could use on a 5×7 card. They are wide cars.  I can’t wait to try some of the other cars and images on this cartridge.  They really are cute.

Valentine Box Card from SVGCuts

Hi all,

I know it has been awhile since I posted.  I have been dealing with health issues with my mom.  So far the treatments seem to be working.  Lots of dr. visits.  Hoping 2016 is a better year.

I made these Valentine Boxes for my grandchildren.  They are from SVGCuts.com and were fairly easy to put together.  I used Tombow  glue for the box and it gave a good seal.  I also made the envelope provided  for the box and it fit perfectly.  I used a lot of papers from my stash.  Hope you like them!  The kiddies did.Valentine box2016-02-10 08.02.06

SuperBoy Birthday Card

I cut two of the superboy images and glued them together to add dimension. The superboy image is from the Silhouette design store and the paper is from Lettering Delights Kicks and Giggles pack. The step card is also from the Silhouette design store.superboy bday20150825_092717 inside superboy20150825_092750 close up superboy20150825_092730

Birthday Pop UP Card

Hi all,

Well now that the holidays are over, I  have been working on replenishing my card stock.   Today I made a birthday pop up card.  The card base is from the silhouette on-line store Happy Birthday / Cupcake Sentiment Set Scallop Pop-Up Card Set.  I love how this card came together.  I changed it up a little by adding the cute cup cake girl image from SVG Cutting files.  The papers were from my stash.  I used my Cameo for the cuts.  I used a Peachy Keen stamp for her cute face.










Pop-Up Birthday Cards Using Silhouette Print and Cut

Hi all,

Here are two birthday cards I made for my granddaughters using the Silhouette Print and Cut feature. They both have December birthdays.  One will be 5 and the other will be 2.  The older one loves anything Frozen and the younger one loves the Shrek movies.  The Anna, Elsa and the castle on the inside  are from the LD Ice Princess graphic set.  The Shrek is an image I traced.  The inside paper and cup cake are  Imagine That digi papers.  Both cards have pop-up surprises inside.  It is hard having a birthday  the Frozen card20141204_141430 frozen front20141204_141652 frozen popup inside20141204_141444 Shrek20141204_141344 inside cupcake pop up20141204_141414 week before Christmas but we try to make them very special.
