I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

16 All Occasion Cards

I just finished making the samples for this class.  I always enjoy the All Occasion Card Classes, it lets me get out of my box a little and I can pick themes for the cards.  This time we will be making a Baby Card, Graduation Card, Sympathy Card, and a Card that can be used as a Wedding or Anniversary Card.  The colors are different and well I think they are fun cards that anyone would enjoy making and adding to their card collection.  Of course I think that you will enjoy sending them out to family and friends as well.  Well here they are:  (remember cards are subject to change due to supplies)


This card is our graduation card.  We will be using the following cardstock: Cranberry, Sunny Yellow, Black and White Daisy.  Pattern paper is from a discontinued set Magic (I believe).  Stamp sets used are C1408 Live Inspired, C1351 You Did It, and C1228 Class Of (this one is discontinued).  Inks used are Archival Black, and Cranberry.  We also used 3 star brads (not ctmh), a star punch, dmc floss black, and graduation hat from Cricut.

This Card can be used for a wedding, or anniversary.  This card uses the following cardstock: Blush,and Colonial Wht.  Pattern paper is from the paper packet level 2 That's Amore (discontinued).  We will be using Chocolate distressing ink, tulip ink.  We will also be embellishing with cream pearls from the Mocha Opaques adhesive Gems.  Also will be using a Fiskar border punch.  Stamp set used is D1254 Soul Mates.

Pattern paper is from the Wings Level 2 packet.  Stamp Set is the January Stamp of the Month D1452 Find Your Style (very neat set) and D1476 Card Chatter - Sympathy (also a new set available February 1st).  I used the cuttlebug to emboss the Juniper paper and the flower is sponged with Juniper ink and then the Black Button Brad was used.  We are also using the new Spray Pen from CTMH that will be available February 1st.
