Makes me feel old...

My twin cousins (Alec & Max) are turning 17 tomorrow. (which means I am exactly 4 months away from being 27)
I was the baby in the family until I was 9 years old. Then my uncle & his wife had the twins. I love them so much and use to babysit them when they were babies. The time has flown by and now they are in high school and have their driver's licenses and will be 17. I'm so interested in what paths they will pick as they go into their Senior Year this fall.
I'm always making them take pictures with me. It is so cray to be how much they are changing and growing. They are both over 6 feet tall. They make me feel old and short. :)
Happy Birthday Boys! I love you dearly!!!

Cards, Cards, Cards...

Check out Bella Blvd today for some inspiration. I had so much fun using the Cuttlebug embossing folders and the quilling kit.
I love the Tall Tags in the Sophisticates line! They are perfect for cards & tags. I used the embossing plus die: Fanciful Labels on this card. It was so nice that it cut and embossed all in one.
The embossing folders are a great way to add texture & dimension to a card or tag.
I love to add a little twist to a normal card. I made this tri-fold card and used the...
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Border Set 37-1923 was a great way to add a little elegance to this tri-fold card. The border sets are cool because you get five different options! :)
I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration today. Check back tomorrow for even more. Don't forget to go over to Bella Blvd!

A fun little Frame & Giveaway...

I love to cut out flowers and embellishments from paper and I thought it would be great to combine my cut out flowers with ones I cut using the Cricut. I used the different flowers to decorate a frame of my sweet little Avery.
I used a plain wood frame and painted it white, using Bella Blvd's Flirty line I added the cut out embellishments and stickers along with a Baby Blooms a Bella and some buttons. The Flirty line with the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge was perfect for this frame.

Don't forget to head over to Bella Blvd today to see the rest of my project and an Amazing Cuttlebug Giveaway! You won't want to miss this.

My Projects & Amazing Giveaway

You won't want to miss checking out Bella Blvd today. Two of my own projects are being displayed and there is a HUGE Giveaway! How awesome is that! :)

My first project is a banner that you could create for any occasion. I chose Welcome Home because so many family members come home for the 4th of July! I used Bella Blvd's Man of the House collection and Maya Road's Ribbon, Chipboard Home (of the front of their album) and Maya Mist to cover the word Home.

Here is a close up showing how easy this can be made with nesting punches.
My second project is a Mini Album titled "Everyday moments that make me Smile" I used an American Crafts mini album and cover it with Bella Blvd to make it personal.
Throughout the book I used Maya Road's chipboard numbers to list the moments that make me Smile! :) I used used Maya Road's ribbon, flowers and some Maya Mist. It was so much fun creating this mini album.
The BEST thing about today is it is Friday & it is the BIGGEST GIVEAWAY @ BELLA BLVDthis week. Be sure to check out Bella Blvd to see how you can win this...
