Dollar Store Find: Superfine Glitter

I was at our local dollar store (Your Dollar Store With More) the other day, and came across this little surprise!

For $4.00 plus tax, look at all the glitter I got! The glitter is really SUPERFINE! It will look great on cards and other projects, can't wait to rip them open and start shaking!!

Birthday Card - Girl

So yet another birthday is on it's way for one of my children's friends. A young girl, who likes pink, used SCAL, vinyl, skittles, stamps and ink. Sorry the pictures are not more clear, the lighting in my office is not the greatest!

I covered a standar size blank card with paper then embellished. Here is the front of the card...

Inside of the card, used the same paper as what I covered the outside with, but used a narrower piece, stamped the birthday wishes and design below the birthday wish...

Thanks for looking!

Another Birthday Card

This time for a friend of my eldest son's. Used SCAL and "Hall of Heroes' font (you can download it here), cut out the Transformers logo and name from silver vinyl! I love the vinyl because you can use it just like a sticker, no glue was used in the making of this project!!! I also used a couple of stamps I had in my stamp basket (I have never been big on stamping until now!) and silver ink to create a tiny border (can't really see it in the picture, sorry) SO here it is (have I mentioned how much I love SCAL?!)

More Father's Day Cards

This one I created for my husband's dad, it was made using SCAL, first I used the basic shape long rectangle and then the herald font for DAD, welding them together and cutting the card, then I cut DAD again after removing the rectangle, pasting the individual letters over the cut on the card, embelished with butterfly stickers and stamped edges.This card was made for my husband's step-dad using the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge, embelished with matching blue pebbles (skittles) in the corners.

Father's Day Card

I was browsing the web for ideas on a Father's Day Card for my dad and came across this blog post for a tie on shirt card.  This is my version of this card, I think it turned out pretty good for my first try, of course I went with a "Tacky Tie" cause that just suits my dad!  Click above for the link for the download of the instructions, as well as a video tutorial.
