Catching up from 6 months of being MIA... :(

Well, the prodigal blogger is returning (at least for now). Life has a way of making me a very sporadic crafter...I go in fits & starts. I haven't stopped all together, but sometimes long stretches go between card making sessions, and even longer stretches between blog posts! I'd like to start getting back to it, so this post will include a bunch of cards that I've done in the last 6 months, just so it becomes evident that I have still been creating even though I've been too lazy to blog my creations! :)

In February, I made these favors for my daughter's kindergarten class using WPlus9's cute set called Bitty Buddy Valentines.

These ones were for my older daughter's 3rd grade class for Valentines. I made them with Papertrey's Tiny Treats: Valentines set and the My Favorite Things Lollipop Treat die.

Assorted birthday cards:

These were fun to make...I have a subscription to House Beautiful, which is WAY too uppity for my wallet, but which has a few pages with nice color combos. I ripped those pages out and decided to make cards with those color combos! I photographed the pages to show how nice those combinations look on cards! This was a fun inspirational idea.

Some thank you cards, including teacher thank yous from the end of the year:

And additional assorted cards for different occasions:

And lastly, a really fun graduation card for a cousin of mine who graduated from nursing school...I really love how this one turned out! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine for the envelope & words...that machine is so cool! I'm still learning about what all it can do...

I'm sure there were more cards even than this, but I didn't get around to photographing them all. Hopefully I will start getting back into the groove that I managed to get into in 2011 where I was participating in a lot of challenges and blogging often. Those were good times!

  1. Wow! You've been busy! I feel the same way... I make a bunch of cards, forget to take pictures of most of them... then try to squeeze them all into a blog post every few months!! Oh how I wish I had more time too!
