Summer Coffee Card

Hey Coffee Loving Friends,

  
Good Morning and Welcome to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!! You will want to go to http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/ to start the blog hop. Grab a cup of Coffee and head on over and see all the wonderful projects everyone has come up with. Kadoodle Bug Designs is a Super Sponsor for the Hop. You can find some cut Coffee files over on their website http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/. While you are there pick up this weeks super cute coffee themed freebie!!


This morning I want to show you a cute Summer themed Coffee Card. I wanted it to look like the turtle was relaxing on the beach drinking a iced latte. For this card, I used a combination of three files Paradise Found, Kawaii Summer Drink, and Cutie Katoodles Lemonade Turtle from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards I make but my favorite happens to be tropical beach scenes. Who wouldn't want to be on the beach right now relaxing with a cold drink?!? For the turtle, I replaced the lemonade cup with the Kawaii Summer drink. I didn't put the orange slice on the side though because I thought it was to much for a coffee. Instead of lemons by her feet and in her hair bow I replaced that with the Coffee Beans.

Father's Day Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you all are having a great week!! I had a funeral to go to this week and I've been babysitting my nieces, so I'm delayed in getting my card posted.

Tonight, I want to show you a Father's Day card I made using the fishing bear freebie from last week. I really liked the bear and thought it'd be cute to make a big one as the Dad and a little one as the son.   For this card, I used a combination of two files Fishing Bear and Gone Fishing from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards and scrapbook pages I make. It's fun for me to add all the details into the creations. I guess that's the way my brain works because I just love details!!! When I created this I wanted the Dad and Son bear to be on a boat fishing. So I used the boat from the Gone Fishing file and then the woodgrain stamp to create a realistic boat. Then, I used some blue Nuvo Drops to create the ripples in the water. To finish it I added some cattails around the boat to complete the scene. : )


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Gone Fishing and Fishing Bear
Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge: Cattail

         I hope you had a great week!! I spent this morning with my Mom and Sister in Law yard selling. It's always fun to go to yard sales and find treasures for cheaper prices. And crafty treasures are my favorite. Yesterday, I got a scrapbook paper rack for $20. It's got 30 slots to put all the paper in. I'm super excited about it!!! I need to do some rearranging before I can actually put it in my room though. I also got some brand new school themed washi tape and some black and white twine for 50 cents each.

Tonight, I want to show you the last Teacher Appreciation Card I made for my other nieces teacher.  I used a combination of two files from Kadoodle Bug Designs for this card: Cutie Katoodles Smarty Owl and Color Me Cute.



Like the previous card, I let my niece look through the Kadoodle Bug Designs School files. She picked out the Color Me Cute Bear with the Crayon. I wanted the card to have a little something more so I added the book and the bookworm.

Solider Memorial Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!! I'd like to thank all the Men and Women who gave it all for our Freedom!! I think the Bible says it best, Greater Love has no one than this, that he  lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13) This scripture was my inspiration for this card. I tried to get my Cricut to write the scripture on the card, but it didn't work out right. And my printer isn't working either or I would have tried that too. : (  I used a combination of two files from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card: Loving Memory Bears and Cutie Katoodles Army Penguin.



I messed up a few times when making this card, but sometimes you have to roll with it and keep going.  One of my mistakes was the sky it was too dark. I started out with blue and went to purple but it didn't look good. I then flipped the card to the opposite side and did yellows and oranges but you could still see some of the purple so, I had to put the grass up a little bit to cover it. Then I messed up on the grass and ended up having to trim the bottom piece. To cover that up, I cut a white trim border and it left a area at the bottom I could put the sentiment.

I wanted the middle cross to look like it was closer so, I popped it up and then I cut the two side crosses smaller and laid them flat so they appear further back. In the end, though the card turned out better than I expected



Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files: Cutie Katoodles Army Penguin & Loving Memory Bears.
Stand & Salute Cricut Cartridge: Dog Tags

         I hope you had a great week!! Today was my nieces last day of school.  She's sort of emotional because next year she will be going to another school district and she's only been to this school.

Today, I'm going to show you another card for another teacher in her classroom.  Every year, I make Teacher Appreciation cards for my nieces teachers.f I used the School Day Bookworms file from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card.

Bookworm Teacher Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope today has been a great day for you!! Every year, I make Teacher Appreciation cards for my nieces teachers. One of my nieces finished preschool yesterday and the other finishes school on Friday. So, I have a few cards I've got to work on for the teachers, so stay tuned for more cards. I used the School Day Bookworms file from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card.



So I let my niece look through the Kadoodle Bug Designs School files and she wanted the worm coming out of the apple. She thought it looked cute and so did I. Instead of doing the bow at the neck, I made the bow on top of the worm so it looked like a hair bow. I really liked the sentiment too because it looked kind of like child's writing.

Giraffe Graduation Shaker Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you are having a great week so far!! I don't know about you guys, but last week was crazy busy for me. On Wednesday, I went on a Field trip with my niece bowling and to the park all day. On Thursday, I celebrated my birthday with my family at the park. We had barbeque because I was craving it and had ice cream cake. The cake was sort of a disaster because it was melted a little bit by the time we ate it. On Friday, my nieces only had a half a day of school, so I watched them till their mom got off work. On Saturday and Sunday we celebrated Mother's Day at two locations. I was beginning to wonder if I would finish the card on time, but I finally finished it. Yay!! : ). I used two different files from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this card. I used Cutie Katoodles Bathtime Giraffe and Cutie Katoodles Graduation Owl.



My favorite parade is the Rose Bowl Parade that airs on New Years Day. I just love all the flowers and colors on the floats they always inspire me. So my inspiration for this graduation card was from the Rose Bowl Parade this year. UPS had a float with a giraffe on it wearing glasses re. When I saw that float I thought it was so cute, so I knew eventually I wanted to make a card with a giraffe wearing glasses. I decided to make a shaker card and put the giraffe on top.

Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Cutie Katoodles Graduation Owl and Cutie Katoodles Bathtime Giraffe

Owl Graduation Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you guys are having a great Tuesday!! The weather where I'm at today is gorgeous, it's sunny and nice outside. So, todays project is a girly graduation card. I used the Cutie Katoodles Graduation Owl from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


My Sister requested that I make a girly graduation card for someone she knows. Whenever I make a card for someone I know or if it's an order for a customer, I like to know what their favorite colors are and what they like. I think it adds an extra personalized touch.  I asked what she wanted and she said an owl because the girl loves owls and to make it bright and colorful. I embossed the background with a iridescent embossing powder and used a woodgrain stamp set. I just loved how that turned out.

Koala Scrapbook Border

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you are having a great week so far!! : ) It's been raining hard here the past few days and now all the surrounding towns are flooded. : ( Hopefully all the water goes down soon.
So, todays project is a vertical Koala Border with a Mother and a baby Koala. I used the Cutie Katoodles Koala from Kadoodle Bug Designs.



I just love Kadoodle Bug Designs Cutie Katoodle files, they are just so stinkin cute. I wanted to create something that was Mother related since Mother's Day is coming up, so I used the Koala file.  For the Koala bears, I used just the Koala file and cut the legs and arms facing one direction. I wanted it to look like the Koala was holding onto the tree. I did the same thing for the baby Koala but faced it the opposite way. The tree is from the same file as well I just increased the size. I made the sentiment in Cricut Design Space using a font called A Red Bucket.

Mechanic Retirement Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday so far. It's been raining and storming here the past couple of days and it rained pretty hard all last night, so now some areas around us are flooded. So I'm staying home to work on some crafty projects I need to do.
So, todays project is a retirement card for a mechanic.  I used a file called Little Mechanics from Cuddly Cute Designs for this project. I purchased this when they had a sale last week but now I can't seem to find that file on their site. They just released a super cute file that is similar to this one called Mechanic Cuties.



So, my Dad has a guy at his work that's been a mechanic there for 34 years. He is going to retire on Friday, so when I saw this file I thought it would be perfect for a retirement card for him. I dry embossed the background with a diamond plate cuttlebug folder.

Octopus Mother's Day Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you had a great day!! : ) It was such a beautiful spring day here. I got to spend some time outside today and watched a woodpecker for a little bit. I love to go outside, especially in the springtime when it's not so hot.
So, todays project is an ocean themed Mother's Day Card.  I used a combination of two files for this project. The first file is the You are my Squishy and the second is Princess Narwhal from Kadoodle Bug Designs.



When I was a little kid, my favorite movie was The Little Mermaid. Now it would have to be Finding Nemo or Finding Dory. I just loved all the colors that they show in the ocean. I would constantly draw pictures of the ocean and make it really colorful. Dreaming of the day that I would finally get to see the ocean in person. That dream finally came true the summer of 2015. Yay!! : )
 I had so much fun creating this card!! The more I worked on it, the more excited I became and couldn't wait to see the finished result. So to create this card I combined two files You are my Squishy and Princess Narwhal. I used the Princess Narwhal file for the seaweed, starfish, shells, and I'm going to say coral. I'm not sure if that was coral or not but I made it coral for my card. Then I used the You are my Squishy file to make the Momma octopus and the little girl octopus.

Rainy Day Duck Card

Good Evening Deer Friends,


I hope you had a great Easter Weekend!! : ) I spent the weekend with my family. Saturday we celebrated Easter with my nieces and my sister and her in laws. Sunday, we went to Church and celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus. Then we all went to my brothers house and had Easter dinner there. Then came home and relaxed for a little bit before watching When Calls the Heart. I love that show. : ) So it's been raining off and on the past few days and I thought a rainy card would be cute.  I used the Rainy Day Duck file from Kadoodle Bug Designs to create this Card.



Have you ever been somewhere and saw something that inspired you and you wanted to make it into a card or scrapbook page? Well this card was inspired by an Easter decoration I saw at Taco Bell. So I looked on Kadoodle Bug Designs website for a duck with an umbrella and found the Rainy Day Duck file. In the file, the duck is sitting in the umbrella floating on a water puddle. I just flipped the umbrella over and made the duck carry the umbrella and added some rain boots on to the duck. I wanted it to look like the duck was splashing in a puddle.


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:

Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Rainy Day Duck
Cardstock:  Coordinations & Bazzill

Easter Coffee Card Gift Set

Good Evening Deer Friends,


I hope you are having a great week so far!! : ) This evening, I am sharing a coffee gift card holder and a coordinating card. I wanted to make something that was coffee related but with a Spring twist. I used the Bunny Cupcake file to create this card and gift card.




So, I wanted to make something that mixed Easter and coffee together. I looked through Kadoodle Bug Designs website and found the Bunny Cupcake file and thought it would be perfect. Instead of cutting the icing in purple, I cut it in brown. Then I tucked the bottom part into the coffee cup, so it looks like the Bunny wanted some coffee and jumped in and made it splash all over. I just got some Nuvo drops in this week and I wanted to play with them, so I covered the coffee area with the copper penny drops. I think it turned out super cute with the drops on there.



    Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:

    Paper Piecing
    KaDoodle Bug Files:  Bunny Cupcake
    Cut Files: Love you Latte Cartridge for the Coffee Cup and the Coffee Bean.

    Nuvo Drops: Copper Penny & Dandelion Yellow


    I hope you enjoyed this project today and be sure to check the blog again soon.  I hope to share some more Easter projects with you this week.

    Fox Birthday Card!!

    Good Evening Everyone,


    I hope you had a great Tuesday!! : ) This evening I want to share a birthday card I made for my Mom. Her birthday was Sunday, but we aren't celebrating until tomorrow so my Brother and Nieces can be there as well. I used the Girly Girl Fox and the Woodland Foxes files to create this card.



    So, last week I kept struggling to figure out a birthday card to make my Mom. I've been making cards since 2011 and I always make something different. Finally, Friday night I figured out I'd make one with a Fox on it holding a cupcake. I looked through the fox files on Kadoodle Bug Designs website and I thought the one with the girl fox holding nail polish would be perfect. I just replaced the nail polish with a cupcake. I thought the Fox would look cute in the woods so, I used the Woodland Foxes file to create the tree stump and the mushrooms.

    **** I want to make note of something before I start the project steps I used. For some reason my Cricut cut out pieces in different sizes. I'm not sure what happened but it did this recently on another project too. So most pieces cut out smaller than they were supposed to and a few pieces cut out at the normal size. I had cut everything out and put everything away before I saw that it wasn't the right size so I went with it. Below I'm going to give you the sizes I designed it at since I don't know the size it truly cut it at.****


    To make this project I used the steps below:

    • The bases are from the Cricut Alphabet Doily # 7
    • Blue base was cut at  6.08 x 6.02
    •  Darker Purple base was cut at 5.62 x 5.57
    • Light Purple was cut at 5.63 x 5.57
    • The Purple ring was cut at 4.61 x 4.57.
    • I sliced the circle into a ring so it created a border around the fox and stump.
    • Then I got a little purple happy and sponged the background lightly with purple. And inked the blue doily circle and the ring in purple as well.
    • I inked the stump with shades of brown and embossed it in gold with a woodgrain stamp.
    • Then I stamped and embossed the Happy Birthday Sentiment on the background.
    • The grass is in Design Space under Spring Seasonal.
    • The Fox is cut at 2.2 x 3.25.
    • Then I added Nuvo drops on for the nail polish and the sprinkles on the cupcakes.
