Quick Print Cards | Hybrid

I am a big fan of cards, and although it's really fun to create a super-custom hybrid card, it's just not realistic to put that kind of time into each and every card. All the cards were super easy to design using pre-made card templates by Krisi's Kreations. So, I created a bunch of "quick print" cards that are simpler designs that don't require any post-printing work. They are also designed with a lot of white space so they don't use a ton of printer ink. With that kind of investment, I can keep a few on hand ready to go. Sorry, H*llmark... I'm afraid you may never see me again!

Tic Tac Toe Travel Game | Hybrid

Oh, I am so excited about this project, which turned out even better than I hoped! One of the hybrid challenges over at ScrapMatters this month was bottle cap magnets. I combined that idea with this cute kit by Pixel Gypsy and created a travel-size tic-tac-toe game, in a cd-tin. The bottle cap magnets will stay in place, and the tin keeps everything contained.

Yeah, me - a new CT!

I'm so excited! I was selected for the Pixel Gypsy CT! The designs are so great! I actually heard this wonderful news right before I left on vacation, and it took a few weeks to get caught up with my other responsibilities, but my first project for Pixel Gypsy is done, and it will "go live" tomorrow when the her new kit is out.

Want to see what I'll be working on? Check out the Pixel Gypsy blog and her store at thedigichick.

Charlie's New Car | May 8, 2010

Mom said she didn't want any presents for Mother's Day. We didn't listen. My brother's family and I bought her a special toy for her grandson to play with when he visits her house. He LOVES it... and so does Oma.

We Became Sisters | May 22, 2005

On this day you married my brother and joined our family. I didn't know then how much I would grow to love you, & how much I would come to treasure having you in my life. I am so very thankful, for it was on this day that we became sisters.

Baptism Announcement | July 11, 2010

Today, my nephew is being baptized. I created this invitation/announcement for the occasion. His mom picked out the colors and basic design, and I filled in with papers and choice of font. I loved that I was able to be a part of this day in a small way.

Pillow Box Door Hanger | Hybrid

Another fun project from Krisi's Kreations using her Pillow Box Door Hanger. I've made pillow boxes and door hanger before, but never thought to combine them! This would make a fun treat for a child, or a welcome gift for your houseguests.
