Welcome, Aubrey!

I just wanted to share some pictures of my precious baby girl, Aubrey! She is an absolute joy (despite those sleepless nights), and I just love to hold her and just stare at her! More to come:

Christmas Cards- That's Amore part 2

Back for more? Here are a few other Christmas cards using That's Amore paper:

The one on the right is not really Christmas, but I really like this cake stamp, so I had to use it! The card on the right has the beautiful deer from Heartfelt Christmas, and a red sparkle for the nose! (snowflakes on the side of the image are also from Heartfelt Christmas).

The top card uses the package and sentiment from Ms. Holiday Cheer. The bottom Card uses Heartfelt Christmas again (both tree and snowflakes). The glitter on these does not really show up in the picture, but trust me, they sparkle! I had cramps in my hand from trying to add glitter to the dotted garland on the tree! But the more sparkle the better, I say!
Thanks for looking!

Christmas Cards- That's Amore part 1

Thanks to everyone for being so patient as I try to find time to upload all my pics and post them! I took pictures of almost all the Christmas Cards I made for the recent craft fair, and will post a few a day! Enjoy the first round!

I used the Everyday Celebration cutting templates for a lot of my Christmas Cards which made it easy to make a variety of cards without having to come up with original patterns each time. This first batch is with the That's Amore Paper (I know, I used to think of it only for Valentines day, but I LOVE it for Christmas, too!)

The card on the left uses Angels sent, and has the second half of the saying "Please protect the ones we love" inside. I also used a TON of glitter on the side (stamped with the swirlies from Jingle Borders), too. The one on the right uses that sassy shopper from Ms. Holiday Cheer. For both cards, I paper-pieced the outfits to match the B&T paper. All the images were matted and use foam tape for more dimension.
Stay tuned for more tomorrow! Thanks for looking!
