Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Notecard Sets

I have finally completed the notecard sets for my girls who have had a birthday this year.  Unfortunately, Shirley's was in January, Misa's was in May, and Aino's was in June.  I never said I was ever on time :), but I eventually get it done.  The girls favorite color  is pink which made it a little easier for me, since I could cut all of the paper down from one pack.  I did change up the embossed background on each one and how their initial is displayed.

First is Shirley's since her birthday was first:

The first picture is of the box made to hold the notecards.  A dozen notecards are made for each set.  All the initials are done on Microsoft Word in different fonts and punched with a 1.25 inch circle punch.  The flower cut out is made with the Stampin' Up Large flower punch.  The embossed background is done on the Cuttlebug with the Stylized Flower embossing folder.

Next, is Misa's notecard set.  The embossing folder used on her cards is the Leafy Branch.  The medallion that is behind her initial is cut on the cricut at 2 inches from the Storybook cart.

Finally, Aino's embossing folder is Victoria and the tag behind her initial is cut at 2 inches from the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart.  The ribbon is CTMH Bubblegum sheer ribbon. 

The flower, medallion flower and tag are cut from the Colorbok Punch-out Paper Bright.
Now the hardest thing is to actually get them in the mail...hopefully, before their next birthday!!

I decided to enter the notecards in the:
