I'm back with more of my son's senior scrapbook today.  Here are the next two pages covering one of his pre-season wrestling tournaments.
These pages were created using Studio J, Close to My Heart's online digital scrapbooking program.  It is absolutely free to play around with and try out.  Check it out on my website or contact me with any questions.

Thanks for stopping by again today!  Hope to see you back again soon.

64 Years of Wedded Bliss

Today is the anniversary of my wonderful grandparents.  They have been together for 64 years.  I threw this card together for them late last night.  There are things I would have done differently if I weren't working on a deadline to complete the card.

The inspiration for this card came from a card that Jeri from Bug 'N Me Creations made.  You can see her original card HERE.  I did not make my card a shaped card, but I did like how the "happy" was the main focal point of the card.

Here is my version:
Here is the inside:
I have to apologize for the photos.  In my haste, I didn't have time to wait on the "good light" of the day to take my pictures.

The card is an A2 size.  The paper came from Close to My Heart - the paper is now retired, but I have a few pieces leftover from an earlier project.

Here are the items for this card:
  • Cricut
  • Gypsy
  • Xyron
  • Adhesive
  • Sweet Pea paper (retired) from Close to My Heart
  • From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge
  • Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge
  • Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge
  • Varsity Letter Cricut cartridge
  • Black Exclusive Inks from Close to My Heart
  • Say It in Style stamp set from Close to My Heart
  • Amore stamp set (retired) from Close to My Heart
  • My Acrylix Blocks from Close to My Heart
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Black fine tip pen
I am linking this up to the "Get Your Brag On" linky party and the TGIF Linky Party.

Hip Hippo Hooray

My niece is turning 4 this week.  Her birthday party was last weekend, so she has already received the card I made - loved the hippo.
This card is 5-1/2"x4-1/4".  There were a lot of layers to put together on this card.  I don't usually make cards with so many "little pieces", but I was really happy with how it turned out.  The Xyron makes putting all those little pieces together so much easier than glue!

The items I used for this card were:
  • Cricut Expression
  • Gypsy
  • Xyron
  • The Christmas Card Stack by DCWV
  • The Fun in the Sun Summer Stack by DCWV
  • Create a Critter Cricut cartridge
  • Cuttin' Up Cricut cartridge
  • From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge
  • Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge
  • Turquoise Stickles by Ranger
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you've had some crafting time this week.
