The One With Some Cards

It seems like the scrapbooking has taken a break this week for some card making.  Lots of things to celebrate - babies, engagements, birthdays...

1.  Addie B Designs Baby Cards.  Here are three custom ordered baby cards inspired by those amazing baby bibs, burp clothes and head bands made by Addie B Designs.  

"Welcome Baby Violet" Card.  Supplies:  Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye); Cardstock (American Crafts); Stamps (Lawn Fawn); Letter Stickers (Cosmo Cricket); Floss (We R Memory Keepers); Die Cuts and Flower Embellishment (Sassafras); Digital Files (Lettering Delights).

"Hey Little Miss" Card.  Supplies:  Patterned Paper (Imaginesce, My Mind's Eye); Cardstock (American Crafts, Walmart); Stamps (Lawn Fawn, Unity Stamps); Letter Stickers (October Afternoon, Echo Park); Floss (We R Memory Keepers); Brads (Oriental Trading Company); Digital Files (Lettering Delights).

"Welcome" Headband Card.  Don't those gorgeous headbands also make the perfect card embellishment!  Supplies:  Patterned Paper (Imaginesce); Cardstock (American Crafts).

2.  "Engaged" Card.  This is a simple, happy engagement card with some bold Valentine's Day  colors inspired by this card.  Since these cards were so easy to make using my new Silhouette Cameo, I went ahead and made three! 

Supplies:  Cardstock (American Crafts); Embossing Folder (ProvoCraft - Swiss Dots); Digital Files (Silhouette Store - Jamie Koay).

5.  "Happy Birthday, Captain" Card.  Finally, here is a sailing-themed birthday card specifically requested by Justin.  The concept is that you're looking through a porthole to see the boat sailing away.  

Supplies:  Cardstock (American Crafts, Walmart; Core-dinations; Bazzil; Martha Stewart); Stamps (My Cute Stamps); Digital Files (Silhouette Store - American Crafts, SnapDragon Snippets LLC).

Whew!  That was a lot of cards!!  Thanks again for stopping by and for all the support with this blog and the new etsy store.  It means the world to me.  And just for kicks, here's a little peek at how we ship our homemade creations to people all over the country!  

This was our shipment of Owl Hair Clip Greeting Cards to my fabulous friend (and founder of Beyond Jack and Jill) in California.

And here is our custom designed snowflake banner ready for baby Fiona's birthday celebration in Maryland!

Project 100 Update:  30 down, 70 to go.
