Card Candy

Tonight on the scrapbooking message board I was asked to answer some questions on card candy. While no expert I decided it would be fun to do. I made this to show what card candy is and how it could be used. Although originally the card was made first lol

Feeling crafty

Well I started cleaning my room and as I am putting away all my supplies that I've allowed to be a mess I discovered that I'm feeling crafty again. Seeing all those goodies has inspired me to finish a couple of swaps (one I finished really early! lol) and to create some new things.
This is some card candy I made for a seasonal card candy swap. My assignment as you can see was winter.
The next thing I finished was for another swap. For this swap we had to create a Birthday card with a matching tag. I later finished the tag by stamping the word "celebrate!" below the candles.

Then I worked on some extra postage holders. I was inspired by a gal from, she had created one that had double sided paper with a peek-a-boo center and a transparency. So tried to recreate one for myself but I hated the end result. As I was cleaning I came across a matchbook that my friend Teenah had given me in a Easter NSSS (not so secret sister) swap. So went online and found a template for a matchbook that would fit a snack size M&Ms (end measurements of 2 x 3). I really wanted something that would hold the stamps so they weren't going to fall out and I came across some 'bagettes' from my jewelry making days. LOL I liked them so much I went crazy and made 25 of them. Here is the end result:

Paper Craft Mag Swap

For those of you who know me, know that I LOVE to create and swap my creations with wonderful ladies I found on Recently I signed up for a swap called PC Pro Sue's "Get Famous" Swap. I had to make 11 cards to send in to one of the Paper Craft Pro's because she was going to be doing a segment on a morning show in Utah about swaps. It was really awesome to be able to see my card on tv.
Here is my card that I made for it and (if I can get it right I) here is the segment for KSL 5 morning show where my card along with 11 other talented ladies were shown.

Teacher gift/card

This year Alex's 6th grade teacher was Mr. Beebe. I wanted to make him something for an end-of-the-year gift but wasn't sure what to make. So I decided to make a card with giant paperclip bookmarks as the embellishments. I used some little wooden apples from Michael's. Here is the final product.

Mother's day cards

I created a few Mother's Day cards this year. This is one I made for my boss to give to his wife. I got the inspiration from a card Cheryl made in a class. I stamped the Happy Mother's day in pink, flowers are primas, velvet rickrack, and (you cant tell in the picture) glitter brads for the middle of the flowers.

This card I taught to some of the ladies at church. It was complicated to them but they turned out so nice. I LOVE transparency cards. I got this idea from Angela Sgro. She is one very talented lady! I also made her Hawaiian shirt card as a Father's day card. (I'll post a picture of it later). For this card the flower is on the outside held on with a flower brad and the dot paper is under the front cover being held on by green brads from the outside. I then put a piece of striped paper on the back.
