A little goes a long way!

Sometimes a little embellishment goes a long way. For this page all I did was add a few medium heart stickers and a few small 3-d hearts. I actually used the small 3-d hearts from my Pipstick subscription. Very simple!!

1st Pipsticks Subscription Envelope

So I finally got my first Pipstick envelope in the mail. I was going to do a video but it didn't work out. Every time I tried there where interruptions. So I was only able to take pictures. There where some really cute ones and some so so ones.

The envelope comes like this:

This is the pipstick post card, newsletter, welcome letter, and inspirational quote!

Sheet of hearts and stuff.

Sheet of big glitter hearts and two small sheets of glitter hearts.

Sheet of pigs. I already used two.

To me this look like emoji type stickers for Valentines day.

Sheet of 3-d hearts, conversation hearts, and roses.

Washi tape type stickers

Individual heart, Macaroons, bird, flower, and bow stickers.

Little pippiday stickers.

This sheet is called The Wedding Story stickers and mine is a  Japanese Wedding Story.

In all I really enjoyed all the sticker sheets I got except two. The Pippiday sheet and the Wedding Story sheet. I think I can make the wedding story sheet work for maybe some of my wedding scrapbook pages but not really sure what else to use them for. I will just have to wait and see what I come up with. The Pippiday sheet is another one that will be hard to use. I think some of the images are really cute but a little afraid of what they might actually say. Also don't like that they say diet on a few of them. To me this looks like something my 12 yr. old daughter would like to use and I wouldn't want her to use the diets ones because I don't want her to get the wrong idea.  Also, there are a lot of cute little doodles on there that are not cut out to be used for stickers. Of course you can if you cut the images out.  Other then that everything was really cute.

I have already used a few in my journal as you can see in the picture. I think they look great!!!
Also, the journal is a coloring one! Two great things stickers and coloring!!

The little bows I had to cut from the Pippiday sheet. They were not precut.

Cont. Wedding photos

Love stickers and all I did for this page is is added to stickers, cuts from my Cricut, borders to pictures, and pictures. I got these cut rosette stickers at Tuesday Morning.Love them. Then I cut the border out of snowflake paper from Cricut's free cut of the week Elegant Edges cartridge. Then used Holidays through the year iron for the Mr. and Mrs.. Now that I am looking at it, I think I will add an and sign in the middle that is what is missing.

Old to New, Reuse

So today I took an out thank you card from my wedding and made it into a new card thank you card.

So I took this card and added paper and a border and an embellishment and turned it into this:

I added the butterfly to make a 3d effect.
I really enjoyed how it turned out I hope you guys do too.

Watermelon Love for birthday card

Made a quick birthday card for my daughters friend. She is turning 13. She loves watermelon. I took the idea from the card section on cricut design but I added to it. Here is the link to just the watermelon card.

Here is what I came up with from that idea. I loved it and so did the teenager.  Hope you guys do too.
Comment and let me know what you think!!

Work In Progress!

This is going to be a work in progress for now since I have so many photos from my wedding I like! Today I did one with me and my dad of us laughing before he walked me doe the aisle. It was funny because he photographer said to look at each and smile like you love each other. This is what we did. I love how just a few embellishments using my Cricut made the page turn out!!

Of course we all love the extras we get when cutting hearts. I used the center hearts to add a little extra to the page. My color for my wedding was blue but I love how green make the blue stand out.
