June Stamp on the Month Blog Hop

You should be hopping over from Teresa's blog, if not, just keep hopping and you will make a complete circle.
This month the stamp set is Jubilation - there is just too many great ideas that come to mind with this set!  Almost every holiday is covered in this one!
Here is just a few cards that I did with this set.

 Simple flower card - great for any occasion
 Add some circles and a saying
 I added some pearls to the centers - can you tell I fell in love with the flowers
 With the help of a few letters and a fence - a scary card

 Not sure what this will turn into - but it's a great Love You Card
 I rocked the ends of the leaf into a darker color to give it depth.
And my last simple card - a Celebrate card.
Now hop over to Krista's Blog for some more great ideas using this stamp set.

Modified Baby Album

We cut my daughter's hair for the first time since she was born 5 years ago and I remembered it's something to write in her Baby Book.  Once I opened that book and started reading and seeing a few items missing I spent several days making sure I got back up to speed on all of her memories. There is still plenty for me to finish.

I also decided to add a few extra pictures and the easiest way without covering up too much of the book was to add some Flip Flaps!  Here is some of the extra photos I added to her book:
 Above is a post card to all my Real Estate Customers announcing her.
 Here is the other side of the post card (above)
 My sister did a photo shoot with her all dressed up one day
 First trip to the dentist - she got scared
 Ended up needing to sit on my lap
 Potty training - love the hair - she'll hate this one when she's 16!
 1st Cup (the back side of the potty photo - it flips down on this page)
 The hair - a small sample of the hair!
 1st Trip - The Dells
 1st Train Ride
 1st Birthday and Invite that is attached with Velcro so you can take it out
tickles with Daddy

Thanks for looking!

Mother's Day Card

 Made this card for both my Mother and Mother-in-Law.  The lower flower is actually layered with a flower that is raised with foam squares.  I used Cotton Candy ink and then rocked the edges in Tulip ink.  Maybe click on the picture to make it bigger to see it.
Here's the inside.  And below is the breakfast in bed that my baby girl assisted Daddy making!  I got exactly what I wanted! (Down to the Chamilia birth stone charm for my braclet too!)

Jeweled Collection Purple
This was followed up with wish number 3 - a trip to the zoo for the afternoon!
On the Train 
By the fish

Thanks for reading and hope your day was great!

If you remember these . . . Cassette Card

 I free handed these cards in Make The Cut and cut them on my Cricut.  I did two cards, one for an 80's Birthday Party for a co-worker and one for my sister who's turning 50!  Above is the front of the card. You can see I used a piece of plastic for the window (acetate clear, thin plastic).
 Here is the inside of the card.  Since there is layers inside and out, the plastic for the window was sandwiched between the layers and hidden really well.
 Both cards above.  better view of the window below and the back of the cassette.
 The writing was also done with gel pens on my Cricut too. I bought these and never used them until today! Decided to test them out and they worked great. The tool is pictured below.

The pens have a metal ball in the top and stay in via a magnet inside the metal holder.
Thanks for looking! These were not cheap and one of the pens lasted only a few words. Teaches you a lesson, use your toys right away in case they don't work.  Thanks for looking and leave a message.

Guess the finshed project:

Sooooo, what do you think  that this makes??

Take a guess


Ok, enough, scroll down.
How many guessed the Eiffel Tower??!

To hide the Liquid Glass that might be on the edges, I took my Spray Pen, added 2 drops of Crate - A - Shade and filled half the pen with Rubbing Alcohol!  Shake well and mist all over (outside is best or in a shoe box because the spray carries. I used Liquid Glass to glue all the pieces together.
Another great angle. A friend at work loves the Eiffel Tower so she's getting this one!
This was another super purchase from www.SVGCuts.com!
Thanks for looking.

St. Patrick's Day - Flash Back

Not really a flash back, but a forgotten post!

Here are some mugs I glass etched for a friend of mine that throws a great St. Patrick's Day Party at her house.  Her hubby makes this to die for Irish dinner for us and the house has people coming and going all night long, eating, drinking and good times!  Last year she had me do a Guiness Sign for her on a mirror with gold vinyl.
The picture above is what the back (on the left) will look like.
The back right is what the front will look like.  
This is the vinyl that will keep the glass etching chemical in place.
I cut the vinyl on my cricut. They loved them.  I got the mugs at the dollar store.
My friend's last name is Becker.
There is a full 4 leaf clover on the front,
the back vinyl is showing thru the front one.

Layered the paper for a frame.
Thanks for looking!

Playing Catch Up - Easter Table

Welcome to Easter at our home! 
I haven't unpacked fancy glasses after our move (2 years ago!!!)
Since I was going to have some very colorful extras I decided to use my colorful Tupperware cups! 
Here's one of the guest of honor! 
I created these cute littles houses from http://www.svgcuts.com/!
I cut them on my cricut using Make The Cut software!
The houses come as a basket with a handle - I just left them off.
I purchased these from SVG Cuts and bought peeps and stuck them inside for each guest!

Here is what the neighborhood looks like. Thanks for looking!
Hope your Easter was great!
