Rosh Hashanah Tags

Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year.  For the New Year my agency is giving Honey Cakes to our Jewish clients.  I made these tags to go onto the boxes. 

I printed the tags in Word and punched with the Stampin up tag punch.  I used the stamp set and dies from Thoughtful Branches set. 

I really hope they like them.

Ninja Turtle Birthday Card

We were invited to a Ninja Turtle Birthday Party.  I have seen tons of pouch art Ninja Turtles all over Pinterest so I decided to create my own version.  I used all Stampin up punches.  Circle punch and Oval punch for the head.  Fancy label punch for the mask (i cut off the sides with the oval punch).  For the eyes I used the owl Punch.  I used the oval punch for the smile (just double punched.  For the mouth I used a circle punch and for the tongue 1/2 of a heart punch.  I mounted it onto white squares matted with black.  The card base is a traditional easel card.

Gender Reveal Party Invitations

I'm throwing a gender reveal party for my friend Marie at the end of the month.  She sent me a picture of printable invitations available on Etsy and I used the theme to create my own version.

I used my Cricut to cut images using sweet treats cartridge.
I printed the "What's in the Oven?" onto yellow card stock. 

I printed the inside details using Microsoft Word.  I stamped some yellow using Stampin UP Swirly Bird stamp set for additional color. 

They stand up easily.  

I used circles embossing folder to give extra dimension to the cup cake wrapper. 

I hope she enjoys the party.  Boy or Girl what will it be…  you'll have to check back later to see!

Swap Your Heart Out: Bag Card Swap Photos

I am in the best crafting swap club ever called Swap Your Heart Out.  We meet every 6 weeks and make projects based on a predetermined theme.  Sometimes it is a one on one swap, meaning you only make one project to trade.  Sometimes it is a group swap, meaning you make one item for each member in the swap.  Here are some pictures from our last swap.  I hope i did not miss any projects.  Our group is full but I thought I could share photos for you to get inspiration.  Happy Crafting!
