Christmas Sippy Cups....

clic on pic to enlarge
I did these for my little nieces/nephew. Their the sip/stir cups(I got them at JoAnns) I put their names/sippy cup on them. I put white paper so you could see. I used Plantin Schoolbook and Lyrical Letters for the font.


LOL...This one is for my son. He saw me working on the others and really liked them. I had an extra one so...... I'm going to give it to him Friday(23rd) for his 26th B-day......ROTFLOL!!!!

I got the idea from the Cricut MB. The travel mugs came like this (found them at JoAnn's), I just added their names/sippy cup. I used different fonts(Plantin Schoolbook-Lyrical Letters) and outdoor vinyl.

front of card - I used the Imagine cart Better Together (girl 3"), cricut carts George and Basic Shapes for the font (.30) and Smiley Cards cart for the word bubble (3.20 x .91h). Chomas Creations purple gel pen/holder for the saying.

The inside I used Cursive 101 cart- font (.35) welded and Chomas Creations pink gel pen/holder. George & Basic Shapes for the "17" on the candle (.44h) and the purple gel pen. Smiley Cards cart for the cupcake (1.92h). MS glitter red and gold for the flame. Gypsy wanderings for the music notes (.37h) . I know!! I should of put the "17" on the cupcake and not the candle...oh well.

The envelope from Plantin Schoolbook (9.88w x 5.25h) PERFECT for A2 cards (4.25w x 5.50h) got the paper at HL.

Here is  a "pull tag" I made for someone at work she needed something within a week. I made 20 of them. She LOVES IT!!!!!! I'm very proud of myself. This is the first for "business" project I've done. I must say.....it was kind of fun making something for $$....LOL!!!  Her wedding colors are black and gold.
carts-Sweetheart,  George & Basic Shapes, Plantin Schoolbook
cardstock: black, white and gold
Dazzling Diamods glitter from SU
Sentiment was done on the computer

the envelope is from the sweetheart cart, I didn't like the V cut in it so I welded a square to cover it. I used the double rings and welded 3 "prongs" (retangles) to one of the rings then sized the diamond down to fit and hid the partial ring. I applied glue to the diamond and sprinkled dazzling diamonds. BOY!! does it SPARKLE!! The letters are from Plantin Schoolbook

The tag is also from Sweethearts. I welded the Bride and Groom to rectangles and put the sentiment in the middle that was done on the computer. Added gold ribbon along the top.

Like I said, she wanted 20 of them......hummmmmm....how do I present them......so I made two bags from Plantin Schoolbook and put 10 cards in each one. GORGEOUS isn't it???

Despite the crunch time...it was fun especially since I got PAID!!!! I LOVE the $$ but I'm NOT for hire very often...ROTFLOL!!! This is my hobby not my business!!!!

Last year my niece got married and I just had to make her this card. It's HILARIOUS!!!!
supplies; carts-Sweethearts (car) George & Basic Shapes (oval shape)Cursive 101(outside sentiment/numbers)Plantin Schoolbook (scallop square)<
Chomas Creations gel pen holder/green pen/red pen, vellum, SU cardstock-White,Sage Shadow,
Chocolate Chip(wedding colors) and Black. The sentiment on the inside was done on the computer.

I know your thinking....WHAT???
I live about 600 miles from my niece, I knew my old car wouldn't make it that far. I couldn't fly because I wanted to visit "The Container Store" and get some more shelving units for my crafts(shipping is expensive!)....you can't fit those in a suitcase....LOL!! PLUS I had to shop ALL the SUPER CRAFT Storess...ss. I couldn't miss this important day....I mean opportunity.....ROTFLOL!!!! So I bought a new SUV.......long story short...the wedding/family gathering/SHOPPING FOR CRAFTS was SUPER FANTASTIC!!!! See...the card is funny!!! Especially since the family is still debating....did I go for the wedding or the CRAFTS......hhhmmmmm I'll never tell....
