"I am like the worst card maker in the world so these two cards took me a long time to make!! Laugh! They are extremely simple and easy to do once you step back and look them over. The Blue Baby card is just a bunch of coordinating patterned papers punched with various sized circle punches and then all sewed down, with a simple title and a fun Flair pin for depth! The Pink Baby card is a little more complicated in that it has ribbon flowers. I had never made these kinds of flowers before so it was a new thing for me but turned out to be really easy! (The trick is to use a long stick pin while you roll it so that your whole thing doesn't come undone!)"

"For this layout I challenged myself to use more pictures and to do a two pager. These are two very crazy things for me, cause the most pictures I will put on a layout is three cause I just simply run out of room otherwise! So because of that the logical thing was to do a two pager, but that is also something that is not that common with me! I had a blast with this layout though. It is a lot more simple I normally do, but I wanted to keep it that way in order to keep the focus on the beautiful flowers! But to get little hints of color and texture, I used tiny little strips of paper that are all peeking from behind the flower pictures. Just there enough to accent the pictures, but hidden enough to not take your eyes away from the flowers."

"This is a very special layout to me because it documents something very meaningful in my daughter's life. My daughter has to have speech therapy to help improve her speech (a year ago she barely spoke more than two words together at anytime, and they were extremely difficult to understand cause her pronunciation just wasn't there). And this is the wonderful speech therapist that helped our Creedence get to the place she is now. My daughter has developed so much vocabulary and the sounds are all there! I can't describe how much it means to be to be able to hear my daughter communicate exactly what she wants to say!"
"These little things are pretty straight forward! I desperately needed some cute things for my daughter's hair after she took the scissors to them just recently and gave herself some bangs. Laugh! I created these with some Field House felt pieces, and some pieces I cut out of some scrap felt, and pinned them together with some gorgeous brads. After that you fix them to some little hair clips, and you have some easy to make little pretties for your hair! Or even your sweaters (which is where I clip mine most of the time!)"
