I made these ATCs for ChewysMommy's swap on Cricut. The theme was Winter Months. We were to make 5 ATCs for each of the months January through March. January's ATC is a winter theme, as after all it snows a lot in January! :-) I used a snowflake stamp, which I believe is from Rubber Soul. Then I matted the Snowflake with a Scallop circle. I didn't have any ribbon the right color, so I took a white that I had, and ran it across my blue stamp pad to match the blue snowflake. The bling is from a package of self stick rhinestones I found in the Kids craft section at my local Wal-Mart store. February's ATCused three hearts from the something New to Love set by Stampin Up. The sentiment is from there as well. I used the Very Vanilla cardstock along with Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Real Red Classic Stamp pad colors. The Pink and Red Cardstocks I took from my scraps bag. March's ATC used a sentiment I found online, typed on my computer, and then cut down to size. I used a green patterned paper that I got form one of the Die Cuts with a View Glitter Stack. I used a little shamrock stamp I had from a set of mini's from a real old set of Foam mounted Stampin Up set that I have. Sorry I don't know the name of it.

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
