Sympathy and Encouragement Set

I really like this set. It is really hard to see the embossing on the front of the cards, but it says "In Sympathy and Friendship". I posted the inside of the card as well. I found this stamp at Hobby Lobby. I really think the cards turned out well.

"A Friend Loves at All Times" Set

So I have to say that this is probably one of the ones that I was most surprised at. I really like it a lot. I am really happy with the way that it turned out. I will be making more of these!

Christmas Set 2

It is hard to see in the top picture, but the top two cards have a deer embossed on them similar to the card in the bottom picture. I just love this little deer!

Christmas Set 1

Patriotic Set

Monogrammed Set

This is a monogrammed set for a family member. The picture is not great, but I really love the colors a lot.


My Grandparents love cardinals, and since I didn't add any Holiday messages to these cards, they can use them at any time. It is so hard to shop for somebody that has everything, so I thought they could use these.

Floral Verse Set

My favorite colors. At least some of them. I wish I had had some verse stamps when I made these cards instead of the stickers, but I still really like them a lot.

Brown and Blue

I really liked these colors together a lot, so I made a set with them. The embossing powder matched really well. I wish I had more of the brown paper to make more of them, but I guess that is what Christmas money is for! :)

Blue and Yellow Verses

This is definetly one of my favorite sets. I picked the color scheme out for a particular person, and was so excited to find scripture stickers on sale at Hobby Lobby. I added the other embellishments, and this is the result. I am not sure I can part with them! Hehe! :) Those that know my family and can guess who these are for, please don't tell! :)

Flower Set

This is a simple set that I made using cards out of one of the baby/kid cardstock stacks. I had to make use of the girly paper somehow! I think this would make a cute thankyou card set. I used some of the little rubons I had to add little sayings to each of these cards.

Simple Sayings Set

I cannot take credit for all of this set. A friend of mine actually made the cards for me (thank you!) and I added the stamps. I think it is really cute. :)


I think this is one of my favorite cards so far. I have made a few of them. They are so simple but so pretty. I think that they would make terrific wedding gifts or baby gifts. I made a few sets similar to this for a family member for Christmas this year, and I just love them!


Well, I love butterflies. When I saw this paper at the dollar store I just had to get some. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I had to get it. So I did. Nobody that I am making cards for is particularly crazy about butterflies, but one day I decided I wanted to try to make something with the paper. This is what I ended up with. I really really like it, and pretty much everyone who has seen it has told me that they are not crazy about butterflies but that they really like this card. I didn't have enough of the paper to make a complete set for this Christmas, but I know this is one set I will be making after the first of the year.

Card sets

Ok, so I stayed up entirely too late doing it, but I finished all the stamping for my card sets I am giving away for Christmas. Now all I have left is to make the boxes for the boxed sets, and print some vellum verses for the cards I'm using vellum on instead of stamps. After that I have a few albums to finish up and I am done for this Christmas. Woohoo! Anyway, here are most of the finished card sets. I couldn't get them all in the picture, but oh well. I am going to post some of the sets that I really liked. If I finish up the boxed sets and just love them I will post them too. Those of you who know my family members, shhhhh!! :)

Simple Pink Set

Here is another set that I relly like a lot. I like some of the cards really simple.

Card Set

I think this has to be one of my favorite sets yet. All of the cardstock is from DCWV Nana's Kids. It was a great way for me to use up all of the "girl" paper. I added some ribbons and beads and just love the way they turned out. I am still on the lookout for more scripture stickers, but if I am making small card sets, the ones I found at Hobby Lobby will do for now. I made this for a Christmas gift, but I like it so much I might have to keep it for myself! Hehe. :)

Gift Frames

Here are frames we made for Christmas gifts for the uncles in the family. I can't post all of them yet since Christmas is next week and I want everyone to be surprised! I found the wooden frames at Michael's. The papers and embellishments are from various places around town. I think they turned out really cute...thanks to my little bro for help with the blue one!! :)

Ok, here is the other one! Now that Christmas is over I can finally post it! :) I added it at the top! (the dinosaurs!).

Boxed Set for Gift

Ok, here is a set that I made for a family member for Christmas. It is a boxed set. Not all of the sets I am giving for Christmas will be boxed sets, but I was really excited when I figured out how to make the boxes. I have not decided all the sentiments for all of the cards yet, but I have one completed! :) For the box I used DCWV textured cardstock brights, the flowers and ribbon were found at Hobby Lobby. The vellum saying is out of Creative Memories set either the Friends or Family set, I can't remember which. For the card I used the same cardstock, the patterned cardstock was from DCWV baby album stack. All the embellishments were found at local craft stores.

Gift Card

Here is the card I gave with the gift. I saw a little card at Michael's that I thought was cute, and I started to buy it, then realized, hello! I can make that myself! So I went home and sure enough! Mine is much larger than the one I saw, but I customized it with the colors I had at home. This isn't a great picture as far as color quality goes, but at least you can see all of it! :)

Baby gifts

Ok, here it is, my first post! This is a card gift set I made for a friend that is having a little girl. I thought it turned out really cute! I had a lot of fun making it. When I figure out where I put them I will add the individual close ups of all the parts of the gift. :)
