Home Is Where The Heart Is!

This week at My Paper Crafting, I decided to make a house warming card!

 I decided to use my 1" corner rounder punch on this card! I never remember to do it, so I thought it would be the perfect time to pull it out and give it a go!  The digi I used  is from PCW!
I really like how this card turned out! :)

Hugs, and happy crafting!

Bird Bath Birthday Card!

Here is a birthday card that I made my daughter for her birthday! They just moved into their new place about a year ago! She is really into gardening, and anything nature! I thought this would be perfect for her!
I used the digi from PCW called Birds N Birdbath!

Cricutlicious Saturday!

Happy Saturday to you!
Today at My Paper Crafting, we are dedicating the day to using our Cricut machines! I am guilty as charge not using mine nearly enough! Although, I do like to add a touch of Cricut to add a nice touch if it goes with the digi I might be working on! Today is a good example!
I used Stretch Your Imagination cartridge for the caterpillar, grasshopper, and the flourish leaves! I used the bear as bug catcher digi from PCW! The dandelions were a free coloring page I found online!
Go check out what the rest of the DT has made using their Cricuts!
Hugs, and happy scrapping!

Mermaid Card!

This week at My Paper Crafting, I decided to use one of the newer digis from PCW! She is called QT Patootie Mermaid! Isn't she sweet! :)

This is one of those times where I tried to use colors to go with the paper I was going to use! So many times I color and then try and pick out paper to go with it! I know it's backwards and makes it harder on me, but I usually figure it out ok either way! I did use glitter pens to accent parts of the mermaids outfit and put some shine on her, but it didn't really show up on either picture! :(
Anyway, I had fun creating this card and do hope you like it!

Bendi Card

Hello, here is a bendi card that I made for My Paper Crafting!

Here is where I found the instructions on how to make the bendi fold!
I have to say though, when I made this I did have to change up the measurements a little! The larger piece of paper, I cut 4 1/4 and 5 1/2! The smallest size cut was 1 3/4 and 5 1/2! The next paper was cut at 2 1/2 and 5 1/2!
I sure hope this helps and makes sense!
This was the first time I had ever made a bendi card! I got the squirrel camper digi and the squirrel by the campfire from PCW!
I used the heritage cartridge for the tree found on page 25! I also used Paper Doll Dress Up for the grass found on page 78!

I hope you like what I have come up with!
Hugs, and happy crafting!!!

Ocean Scene!

I am still in vacation mode I guess! I can't seem to shake wanting to go to the beach, lol! The weather hasn't been to unbearably hot here in Texas where I live! It really is a nice change!
Anyway, on to my cards!  :)

I used the sailboat digi from PCW! This happens to be one of my favorite digis! So wonderful for a male card! There is just so much you can do with it!
I did use Life is a Beach cartridge on this one! I love that cartridge as well!

The next card, I used the Whaley Love You digi from PCW! It comes with the words also! :)
