Centerpiece for baby shower

I created this centerpiece for my daughter who was throwing a baby shower for her friend. She saw the idea in my craft room (I had printed out a picture of one done at Cricut's messageboard) so I made it for her. It was pretty easy, except that I had a lot of trouble cutting the chipboard. I cut the chipboard and cardstock at fit to page and the Cricut machine cut the stork at 11 1/2 in. The stork is 2 sided. I then used a piece of fabric I had, I folded it in thirds placing a piece of cardboard in the bottom for support. I rolled the diapers and then tied the bundle with a scrap pieceof ribbon. Then added the stork with the wide pretty ribbon.

Birthday Card for Daughter

On this card I used Cricut's Indie Arts cartridge for the butterfly & heart. I used Stampin' Up's Manhattan Rose embossing folder by Sizzix. I also used ribbon, pearls, stickles, and nestabilitites. The greeting on the front and the message inside were computer generated.

This is a card I made for a Bridal Shower. Umbrella is from Cricut's New Arrival, Martha Stewart edge punch, ribbon, pearls and pop-dotted.
This card is made by using the border function on Cricut's Life's a Beach's Hibiscus. I used one of Martha Stewart's edge punches of the layered borders and a little stickles glitter.

This card was made using Nestabilities for embossing only creating the circle. The carriage is from Cricut's New Arrival, edge punch, ribbon, dots in the corners are called "Pebbles". The "Welcome Baby" was cut 3 times for dimension with Cuttlebug's Baby Combo Set.

I made this card for my husband for Father's day. I used the lion from Cricut's Animal Kingdom and enhanced his mane with quilling. Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots and computer generated words finished the card.

I made this card for my son-in-law for Father's Day. The "Happy Father's Day" sheet pulls out and is the message. In that pocket there are more pictures for a total of 9 pictures of my adorable grandson. I found the directions for this wallet on YouTube: http:/
