Here's the second of my many Christmas cards to make. I am sooooo behind on getting these done. Thankfully I have absolutley NO homework this weekend and I will get the rest of my cards done. Isn't this Tilda a cutie!

Mommy dear has been wanting to see one of my card creations in person. Since she lives in Miami she has only seen them in pictures. With her birthday next week I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show her why I love this stamps so much. I wasn't sure as to what colors I should use and finally settled on some neutral colors so I am hoping she likes her birthday card.

I'm Baaaaaack!

Hello all you wonderful people! I'm back! The wedding was a wonderful success! It was indeed nice to get away from the computer for a bit and enjoy my new hubby, but I also missed all my craft friends. I'm just about all caught up with reading soooo many emails and am read to get back in the swing of things. I joined a Magnolia recipe card swap and I can't wait to start making them this weekend.

Here's me and my new hubby! :)

So the "BIG" day is almost here! There are 2 and a half weeks till I get married, so as you can imagine, I am quite busy. I was however able to make some time to make one last card before becoming Mrs. Alexander Fuentes :) Though this is only my second Tilda card, I am quite pleased with how she came out. I most likley won't post again until after the wedding, so thanks to everyone for looking!

So I gave into all the buzz about these Magnolia stamps and bought a bunch of them along with some copic sketch markers. I realized it's going to take a while to learn how to shade and blend the colors together on the stamps, but for now I am content with what I have made. I decided to add a Magnolia stamp to my fiances Valentine card and I think she turned out really cute :)

MY 2nd CARD!!!

I'm on a roll here everyone! Since discovering this wonderful world of Card Making just about a month ago, I have made two cards. It's true! Two wonderful cards that I am so proud of. It gives the card so much more meaning when you make it yourself :) Anyhoo, this is a Valentines card I made for a friend in one of my Yahoo groups. I'm hoping she'll like it. Now I have to make one for my future hubby. Seeing as how it's the 10th, I better get a move on it.

Thursday, February 4, 2010


I FINALLY did it! I made my very first card using my Cricut. A friend of mine turned 50 today and I thought a handmade card would be wonderful. Next up will be my very first card using a Magnolia stamp. I want to make my fiance a Valentines card with the first stamp I bought. I just need to buy more copics. So make sure to check back and see my latest.

Wedding Signs DONE!!!

I finally got around to making the sign for my Candy Station. Whew! I also finally got to put my Brand New Cricut to use. See the four corner designs and the matting? My cricut did that! That's right, took all but 2 minitues. hahahahaha Ok, so I know it's not much but at least I'm learning how to use it. :)
This is the a framed note I made for each table that will have a camera next to it, for the guests to take snapshots with. Again, not much use from the cricut, but the little bit I did use, made ALL the difference! I just love the red florish design!

I still have to do the programs and place cards, so stay tuned!

Favor Bags 101

HELP!! As I mentioned in my profile, I am extremely new to this wonderful world and this is my first project created using the cricut. I will be making many of these for the candy station at my wedding. I've had a few people tell me that I should add a handle, but don't know how to go about it. I would LOVE to hear some imput from you veterans out there.
