Happy Birthday Cody!!!

I am either late or early depending on how you look at it.  My oldest son turns 7 on Friday but we had his birthday party last Saturday.  It was loads of fun and his friends and him had a blast.  We had a bounce house, that actually caused a few tears and bumps, a pinata that was loads of fun for the kids.  I think they had a lot of aggression to get out  :)
This is the card I made for my son.  It is a bigger replica of the invitations I made for his part.  Since the "recipe" is the same as the invitations I am going to make this short and leave you with a Happy Wednesday!!!
I hope you are having a great week.

Birthday cards

It has always been that when September hits the birthdays begin.  My younger sister's birthday is in Sept., my younger brother is Oct., my dad's birthday is mid-Nov., my older sister and I are in Dec., my older brother's birthday is January and my mom is Feb.
Add just some of the extended families birthdays and I have a brother-in-law in Oct, my mother-in-law in Oct., my husband and son's birthdays in Nov. my middle son in Dec., my youngest in Feb., my niece and another brother in law in March.
If you add all that up that equals a TON of birthdays really close together.
Since I desperately wanted to make a birthday gift for my son's teacher that adds just one more birthday to the mix but I enjoyed doing it.
So today is the teacher birthday card.
I started again with rustic cream cardstock (do I have to tell you how much I LOVE that cardstock?)
The PP is from K & Co. which I absolutely love.  Although it is vintage and flowery I think can work very well for boys scrapbook pages as well.
I stamped the bottom (Pure Poppy) cardstock with polka dot basics (PTI) in versamark ink and punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
The main image was stamped with the latest PTI anniversary set.  I love how the image came out kinda blotchy.  I didn't do it on purpose but I love how it worked because it gave a very vintage feel to the whole card.

More birthdays

I wanted to share this fun project with you guys.  It would have been a lot easier if I had my new toy to help me make it.  Here is a link to my new toy and I cannot wait to use it.
I made a bunch of notecards for my son's teacher.  Her birthday was yesterday and since he didn't have school yesterday or today I wanted to get them done to give her on Wednesday.
I knew her birthday was November, as is my husbands, father's and my oldest son's whose birthday party is tomorrow.
I was lucky to find out the exact date so I knew I needed to do something special for her.  I wanted to do something for her because she was my son's teacher last year when he was in Kindergarten.  She is an amazing teacher and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher for my son's first year of school and for us as a family. 
Like I said, I was rushing so I didn't get to do anything fancy but I hope she appreciated it.
I will share the card I made her on Monday.

Veteran's Day!!!

I am copying this from a friends blog.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

~John Stuart Mill 

Thank you to my husband for serving, my father, father-in-law who saw more than he ever wanted to in WWII and to all the rest of my family who served.
And to all the service men and women who are currently serving this great country.  Thank you for your sacrifice so that I can be free.

Hubby's birthday

This is the card I came up with for my husbands 38th birthday.  Yes, I just said how old my husband is.  I have decided that birhdays are just a number and should be celebrated.  After all, it means that you are still alive.  Who doesn't want to be alive?
So I started out with a kraft base, because I LOVE kraft paper.  And it is so neutral.  The blue is the new PTI color Blueberry sky.  Love it, it is just such a soft and lovely color.  I stamped the middle with polka dot basics (PTI) in versamark and then broke it up with Fine linen ribbon.
the main image is based with kraft paper and then I used cream cardstock to stampe the image (Through the trees, PTI) in tea dye distress ink.  The sentiment is from Through the trees also and stamped in black.  I just inked up the edges with tea dye and cream ink.  I am so pleased with it and my hubby loved it as well, that is all the matter after all.

Just a quick post today.  This is a card for a late birthday.  I mean really late too.  My brother in law's birthday was Oct. 20th.  I just got the card done last week and in the mail today.  I asked my sister what his favorite color and he said black.  Okay, so what do I do with black for a birthday card?  I decided to use it as more of an accent.
My sisters favorite color is green so I went with that as the other color.  I scored it with my scor-pal and used a sponge to accent the embossing.
The circle is actually one my other sister cut out for me using her silhouette (man, I want one of those).
The stamps are from PTI round and round anniversary set. 
Pretty self-explanatory.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Your're invited

My Goodness!!!  Does anyone else really believe that today is Friday?  It has been a very short week here for me.  I have no idea what happened.  I am happy and sad all at the same time.  Time...seems to be slipping away from me.  My baby is 9 months old, as of the 2nd, my oldest will be 7 in two weeks, and my middle precious boy will be 5 next month and starting kindergarten next fall, well, summer.  I am not sure what I am going to do home all day with just me and the little guy.  I am thinking my house is going to be quite spotless, either that or a messy house because little man and I have been playing all day long.  Only time will tell and time can drag on.
Anyway, speaking of my oldest little man turing 7 in two weeks.  We are doing his birthday party a week early because we are heading out to Wisconsin to visit my sister the week of Thanksgiving.
I had to rush and get the invitations done last night because the plan was to have them to the kids today so they had time to make plans or change plans if they so chose.  I say that was the plan but that isn't what happened.  Again, this morning we had a little extra time so I wasn't going a million miles an hour.  That is until I saw the clock and realized we should have left the house a couple minutes prior.  In my haste to get all 3 boys out the door I forgot the invitations.  I was going to bring them up to the school during recess (we couldn't invite all the kids so I wanted to hand them out secretly so we didn't hurt feelings) but my little man wasn't cooperating so the invitations will have to wait until Monday.
I started by asking my big boy what he wanted on his card.  He chose super hero Billy from Pink Cat Studios.  He also wanted to color them.  I asked him his favorite color (because it changes often) and he chose green, specifically New Leaf green from PTI.
The background was stamped with Wplus9 Design Bacics: Background 1 stamp set in vintage cream.  The ribbon is fine linen colored with copics.  The sentiment is from PTI's very first set (Paper Tray).  The buttons were just in my stash.
I didnt' have any stamps to use on the inside so I just wrote out all the details.  I wanted to make it simple since I had to mass produce.  The cards are 4 1/4 X 3, a perfect size for invitations, just wish I had a smaller envelope to put them in.
I hope you have a great weekend.  This Sunday is my husbands birthday.  We aren't doing anything special, maybe take the kids to watch "Megamind" but that is about it.  If he ever tells me what kind of cake he wants I will make that.  He already bought his own birthday presents so I don't have to worry about that.
Happy Birthday Jason!!!  We love you so much.

Happy Halloween!!!

I know I am a day late but I wanted to wish you all a happy birthday and show off my boys.  I hope your Halloween was filled with fun and awesome candy.
 My little man was woken up from a nap to go trick or treating so he was not a happy camper.
This was a display they had at the pumpkin patch we took the boys to 2 weeks before.  I love the set up and had to take a picture, mainly to post here.

Cloth pumpkin

 Hello everyone!!!  I wanted to pop in real quick to share with you the pumpkin I made.  I actually gave it away last night.  It wasn't my own idea, as usual.  I read about it on this blog and just loved it and knew I had to make one. 
I don't kow how many of you have heard of the Halloween tradition of "booing" your neighbors.  After 3 years of living in the same neighborhood we finaly got boo'd.  I was actually very excited and planned on making some homemade sugar cookie pumpkins to hand out.  After going to the website to print out some directions to go with my treat I realized that homemade may not be the best treat.
Instead I packaged up some candy and put this cute pumpkin with it.  Just for some more festive goodness.
I made this pumpking with muslin.  I stamped it with some pumpkin and leave stamps using all sorts of browns, reds, and greens, and a little bit of yellow.
The ribbon is Harvest Gold grosgrain ribbon.  The leaves I bought at the $1 section at Target.  The twirlies are flower wire I bought at Wal-Mart for $1.  A fun, easy, adorable, inexpensive decoration for you and/or family and friends.
I did plan on keeping this one but after getting boo'd I thought it would be neat to give it away.  Besides, we found out we will be moving sometime next year so anything I can get rid of now is less I have to have shipped to my new address.  I just wish I knew where that was.  Hopefully next month we will have some options.  Sometimes military life can be so frustrating  :)
Have a great rest of the week.  I do have some pictures from our church Halloween party so I might post a couple tomorrow but other than that I think I will see you after Halloween.  So, I hope you have some fun parties in your future.  Have a safe and happy Halloween.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

This card was made using a SFYTT sketch I found.  I love how it turned out.  The colors, although Christmasy (sp) are just fabulous for any occasion.
I made this card for a sweet lady who reads my blog and is a regular.  I had a giveaway recently to help with the wedding invitations I was making (which I guess I am NOT making).
She was the only person to respnd so I sent her a Veggie-bella stamp, another Christmas/winter stamp set and some other googies.
I wanted to also make her a card to show her my apprecation for her comments.
I started with kraft cardstock matted with ripe avocado cardstock.  The pp is from many different companies and the stamp set is one of PTI's anniversary sets which I love.
Busy as usual so this is going to be all for today.
I did make those pumpkins I posted about earlier so as soon as I get pictures of it I will post it here.
Tonight is our Trunk-or-Treat party at our church.  The boys are excited to FINALLY be able to wear their costumes.  I will post a few pictures here as well.
Have a great week!!!

First Halloween decoration of the year

Hello everyone!!!  I am so glad to be posting here.  It has been wild and crazy and is promising to be that way for a while.  We have been enjoying some wonderful thunder and lightening storms.  Unfortunately the worst came in the wee hours of the morning and woke everyone in the house up, except my little man who slept right through it.  Thanks to all of the excitement it has made for 2 very moddy little boys.  One is taking a nap now, hopefully to catch up on some of that needed sleep, the other, at school.  I hope we can get them to bed early tonight to help with their moods.  With the storms though, it left us without power for about 5-6 hours yesterday which also meant no internet.  I am so glad to have it now, I didn't realize how much I rely on the internet to stay in touch with the outside world.
The base we live on isn't the greatest in terms of family friendly.  There are a lot of civilians that work here so they do cater more to the civilians.  I only say that because the base doesn't seem to believe in generators so not only were we without power so was most of the stores.  In fact, our grocery store (Commissary) and BX (Base Exchage, kinda like a wal-mart but much, much smaller) are still without power and are not expected to be back up until noon local time.  I hope they estimate is correct because I NEED some things from the store.  If it isn't open I will have to drive 15-20 mins to the closest town and hopefully be able to find what I need.
Anyway, enough of my ranting about the happenings here.  I was led to this blog and this wonderful, fun project.  I had jars, I had mod podge, so I went to the store and bought some festive tissue paper.
This is what I came up with.  I didn't have black felt so I figued I would just use black cardstock.  I think it turned out awesome as well.  I have another jar or two so I hope to make the Frankenstein and ghost soon.
I also have another blog I found here.  I plan to make these lovely pumpkins with a few alterations of my own to fit what I have to use.  I hope to have them done soon and posted shortly after.
Hope all is well in your world.

Simple Birthdays

Hello all!!!  Today I am going to share with you the card I made for my Mother-in-law.  Yesterday was her birthday.  It was also my younger brother's birthday.  Now, all 4 of us kids are stair stepped, meaning we are all one year apart.  This will only last until December when my older sister and I celebrate our birthday though.
So, Happy Birthday Joan and Brian!!!  I am sorry we weren't able to celebrate with either one of you.
This card was made using a layout and basic style I CASEd from Dawn from Wplus9 here.
I just love the sophistication and simplicity of it.  I love the color combo I chose to use too.  I wish I could have used cream or rustic cream instead of white but I am out.  Dang it.  And now that PTI came out with 2 new colors this month I am afraid something is going to have to wait.  How I am supposed to keep up with all these gorgeous colors?
Okay so the base is scarlet jewel (a gorgeous color that I have not used like I should)  I matted the main image with white and ocean tides.
The main image was stamped on vellum using versamark ink and then embossed with detail silver embossing powder.  I used some stickles to dot the centers of the circles (Wplus9 Mendhi Medallions).
the sentiment was stamped with PTIs fillable frames #8 and then I just cut it out by hand since I don't have the cutting dye yet.  The sentiment is one I got from PTIs latest anniversary set.  Then I just used the smaller version of the medallion in SUs baroque burgundy.  Then just added some rhinestones and a button.  Oh yeah, can't forget the ribbon, that is a cheap-o walmart find.  The ribbon was wrapped around and then I used my bow-easy tool and used a dot to adhere it to the ribbon.
I also went ahead and decorated the inside using white cardstock and stamped the ribbon image on the side using ocean tides ink and then the medallion in SU baroque burgundy.  The "happy birthday" is from Inkadinkado birthday wishes stamp set.  I just love how simple and lovely it is.
I think that explains it all.

Joy in card-making

Hello all!!!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  We actually got a LONG weekend and I am finding out it was out of the norm.  My son had Monday off from school as well as my husband was off from work.  It was a nice, kinda casual, busy weekend.  We have a lot of things we are trying to go through and get rid of.  Kinda like spring cleaning in the fall.
Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for my husbands co-worker.  He is getting married next month and made a comment about a certain kind of invitation HE would like for the wedding.  It sounded like so much fun that I HAD to make one.  I finally got to it on Sunday night.

I started out with black cardstock and stamped polka dots with fresh snow ink.  The bottom half of the card is smokey shadow cardstock stamped in versamark with my scrappy cat flourish stamp.  The black ribbon is actually my fine linen ribbon that I colored black with my copic marker.
The sentiment was stamped with fillable frames #4 in fresh snow ink on enchanted evening cardstock (the wedding color is navy blue).
I also decided to do the inside.  I just used some simple rectangular cardstock in smokey shadow and enchanted evening and then wrote the sentiment with my white gel pen.  The coffin was had drawn using my gel pen on enchanted evening cardstock.  From what I hear it was a huge success  : )
This is sad to say but it was the most fun I have had creating a card in a LONG time.  Call me morbid if you want but it is what it is.  I am glad he like it so much.
Well, that is about it for now.  I do have another card to share so hopefully I will have that up in the next couple of days.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Wedding invitations

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I am so happy to see Friday again.  What a long 2 weeks it has been, at least it feels like it to me.  How about everyone else?
We don't have any set plans for this weekend.  Do you guys have any fun and exciting plans for this weekend?
So some friends of ours are planning on getting married next month (it got bumped up thanks to the military).  That is the same thing that happened to my wedding.  My husband and I had a date set for Sept. 28th.  Then he got orders to Alaska.  Since we weren't married I wasn't part of his orders so we had to rush our wedding and do all the paperwork to get me on his orders and plan on our move and all the fun stuff that comes with that.
I was asked to make the wedding invitations for the wedding.  I didn't want to get too elaborate because I am not sure how many I need to make just yet and the time restrictions are going to make it difficult.
This is what I came up with as a rough draft.
I know the bride likes purple, as do I, so I looked for some nice paper I could use that had purple in it.  The PP is DCWV latte.  The cardstock is the new PTI color Fine Linen and plum pudding.
The flourish was stamped with my scrappy cat stamp and embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder.  I just love the sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped with PTI's $5 set called Favor it Wedding and tied on with brown dmc floss to a button.
Now, I have a special treat for everyone.  Like I just said, this is a rough draft.  We are probably going to go shopping this weekend for some supplies to make more.  BUT I am not sure about the layout just yet.
This is what I am going to do.  Please tell your friends to come one over and take a look, leave a comment with an idea I can use to spruce up the layout.  I will pick a random winner to get a Veggiebella stamp that needs some loving and some extra embellishments I have but haven't used in a long time.
Okay, go to it, 2 simple steps to win some goodies.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Another page

This page I made for my youngest son's 5 month birthday.  I have been trying to keep up with the monthly pictures.  I kinda feel guilty about it though because I didn't do that with my other two.  I hope they forgive my shortcomings.
Not much to say about it and not much time to talk about it.
I was trying to copy a simple layout used for my desktop.  I love how it turned out.  I have been trying to recreate a look like this for a long time.  Nothing really matchy matchy or any real form.  I think it makes it more fun and keep the focus on the picture.
I need to do the journal part of it.  I think I am going to make a bigger tag and then put it behind the pictures since the center and sides of the picture wasn't glued down, just the top and bottom.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Oh my gosh!!!  I feel so happy that through this hectic, stressful time for me I was able to get some scrapbooking done.  There is absolutely NO stamping involved either.  It was so nice and I feel so good about getting some projects done.
I started with a picture of my oldest son on our trip to Wyoming in May, I think.  I am so bad with time frames anymore.

The paper is K & Co.,, and making memories.
I don't have a lot of time to dilly dally on the computer so I will just say a few things.
It may be hard to tell but the squares on the side have been paper pierced and then I used a white gel pen and a green spica pen to make it look like it was quilted.  I thought it fit the look of the page.  I love using old techniques like that.  I haven't done that in a long time which made me realize I have misplaced my paper piercer.  I hope I find it soon or it is off to the store to get a new one.
It is a pretty simple and fun layout so I am going to leave it to that.  I hope you all have a fun filled week up ahead.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Craft blunders

Good Thursday everyone!!!  Wow, what a week it has been.  I tell you, my head is just spinning with all the things that have been going on.  I hope to be able to share some of it soon.
Today, since I haven't had much time to sit down and create something lovely, I figured I would just show you this.
I found this and another blog with some ideas but now i can't find it.  I thought it would be perfect for my little guy to play with while we were at church.  He can get a bit fussy the first hour and I feel bad that people have to hear him or we have to leave.  It seemed easy enough so I set out to make one.  I got some felt from Wal-Mart and when I got home I got my sewing machine, some plastic (I didn't have vinyl) and starting planning my fish.  I should have known it wasn't going to go right when I cut off the fishes tail after 2 seconds into cutting him out.
Well, my sewing machine is having issues.  I had before and my mom was able to fix it but it is doing it again and I just can't seem to get it right.  I think I am going to get a new sewing machine.  I have had mine for several years and it was an inexpensive model I got at Walm-Mart.
Since the sewing machine wasn't working I thought I would try the hot glue.  It worked, after I burned my finger and gave myself a blister.  But once it was all dry and I looked it over I decided it wasn't very safe for my little guy to use.
I will try again when I have a sewing machine that works and cleary vinyl.
I hope you give it a try though, it would be fun for road trips too.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

C.C. Designs

Happy Friday everyone!!!  It has been a crazy fun week this week.  There were days I thought it was later in the week than it was but to believe that we are already at Friday is crazy as well.
This week I started volunteering in my son's class.  It is fun to see what he does all day.  It is especially nice because ever since he started school I would ask him what he did that particular day.  The response I got was either very, very short or "I don't remember".  I had a few moments to talk to his teacher about him and his classroom behavior and it was refreshing to have a casual conversation with his teacher instead of the formal parent/teacher conferences.
Anyway, today I am showing you the card I made for one of my niece's birthday, finally.  She had her birthday on the 6th of September.  The same day as my younger sister.  This card is going all the way to Kansas so it is definitely going to be late.  I hope she likes it. 

This card actually came together so easily it shocked me.  I started slowly.  Just grabbed some white cardstock and measured it.  Decided to go with a different size.  This is a 6X4 1/4 size card.
I had the polka dot PP on my desk so I started to play with it.  I had intended on using the shape on the front but used it for the inside since I used the frame on the front instead.
I was rummaging through my desk and happened upon a stash of already stamped images I got from my mom and sister and this one just seemed perfect for my niece.  The colors I used are aqua mist, melon berry, plum pudding and harvest gold.  I didn't intentionally pick any of these color they just seemed to pick themselves.  I think they all work together really well.
I have to admit, it was so much fun coloring images again.  I haven't done that in ages.  You might see more of them on here in the near future.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned.  Nothing planned here so we shall see what comes of our weekend.  I know the hubby has something he is going to do for a few hours in the morning tomorrow so we shall see what transpires for us.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

In Remembrance..

I don't know about you.  There are mornings I wake up and wonder where I am at and what day it is.  This morning, even though I was up late, I knew exactly what day it was, how I was woken up and what every aspect of my room looked like back then.
I remember our roommate knocking on our door telling us he got a call to go into work (he was Navy at the time) and just minutes later my husband got the call.
My prayers go out to the families that were affected by the horrible, unconscionable acts of a group of people.
My prayers go out to the service members and their families who are still fighting the fight.  May they all return home to their families safe and sound.

Another late one

My younger sister's birthday was this past Monday (Labor Day).  We like to joke in our family.  My Mom was literally in labor on Labor Day.  I wasn't going to say how old she just turned (since she is my YOUNGER sister but it is only a number, right?)
So, my wonderful younger sister celebrated her 30th birthday on Monday.  I wish I could have been there to help her celebrate, she is in Wisconsin and I am in California.  We have been through a lot together and I am so proud to call her my sister.  I look up to her a lot.
Happy Late Birthday Carrie, I love you!!!
So to start off I know I wanted to use green since it is her favorite color.  I also used one of Geny Cassidy's layouts she used recently.  I just love her simple and fun layouts.  It makes it so easy for me to put something together quickly since I don't have a lot of extra time to create.
The base is Simply Chartruese and then topped with kraft cardstock (I am not a fan of plain white and my vintage cream and rustic cream cardstock is out, gotta get more).
I used Harvest Gold stamped with simply chartruese dots and a fiskars border punch to add some pizzazz  :)
The ribbon is also harvest gold and I used a spring moss button to add a little more color to the embellishment.
The main image was stamped with chartruese again and is a Waltzingmouse stamp (Label 4) and then the metal is actually a clip I bought at Michael's a long time ago.
That is about it for today.  I hope you have an awesome weekend planned.  We aren't doing a whole lot here.  Tonight we are going out to dinner with a bunch of my husband's co-workers and their families.  I am excited, I love getting together with friends and making new friends.

Precious blessings from Heaven

This is going to be a quick post.  Just wanted to pop in and show you the card I made for the precious baby girl from the baby shower I was lucky enough to attend.  The basics are the same except instead of paper I used the heart prints stamp from PTI and stamped it in several pinkish colors.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Welcome back

to me.
I am sorry about my lack of posts lately.  I tried to get something posted last week because I actually had things to post but last week was just H-E-double hockey sticks.  If I wasn't down with horrible allergies, I was down with massive migraines.  I am so glad to have last week behind me.
Today I wanted to share with you one of two baby shower cards I made.  I had a dual baby shower last Tuesday (the only day I actually felt like a human being).
It was for two lovely new mother's in my ward.  One is a mother of a little boy and the other has a precious little girl.  This first card is for the adorable little boy.
I got the idea from my desktop picture my older sister made me.
I don't have much time.  I have to catch up on household duties.  We got back yesterday evening after taking a trip to Yosemite.  It was awesome and I am so glad we went.  My husband had been wanting to go since he was young so it was awesome to be the one he got to go with and share the wonderful experience with him.  Plus, our boys were all troopers.  I love all my guys so very much.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
