Happy Birthday Card and Gift Card Holder

Such a fun card, this is one of those where I probably went a bit overboard with all the different elements I added to the card. A combination of fun paper, punches, Memory Box dies, and embossing folders all came together to create this fun card. The punches are Martha Stewart, I have had the most success with her punches, and prefer them over other brands. There is, of course, glitter for that touch of sparkle.



This birthday card also has a secret "gift card" holder, lol.  When you open it up, you will see the gift card nestled inside. I used some chipboard elements to hold the gift card in place. When you remove the gift card you can see the sentiment. The best part about this approach is you can use any embellishment, pop them off the page and there you have a place to rest your gift card. One more tip: I put the tiniest dab of removable tape to hold it in place.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Personal Favorites

As we prepare to say good bye to 2013, I wanted to share my favorite projects from 2013...

There were quite a few different types of projects, so I will categorize them

Cards - here is a collection of some of my favorite cards!
---------------------------------------
I cannot think about my favorite cards without sharing my spooky spider card! This was such a great card, I loved everything about it.


No year is complete without remembering mom...


You can never have enough Thank You cards, and this one is so pretty


Boo! Don't let this little ghost frighten you!


Don't forget about the gift cards... as the children get older and are very unimaginative and ask for money, we may as well spruce them up in some way.


This stacked present birthday card is embellished with a multi-strip quilled element


Printables - I am truly enjoying sharing my printables, expect many more in 2014!
---------------------------------------
Some of my Keep Calm collection...




If you want to smile, don't forget this cutie...


Cut Files - My plan is to share more of these in 2014... time is my biggest hurdle...
---------------------------------------



As we wind down 2013 and get ready for 2014, I am grateful for my wonderful family and collection of friends like you! Thank you for your support and beautiful comments, they make the journey worthwhile!

May you and your family have a Safe and Happy New Year!

Freebie Graduation Card Printable

I wanted to get this Graduation card in before the year was over... We celebrated my sister's graduation over Christmas. She graduated over the summer, but there was never any kind of celebration, so I wanted to make sure she knew how proud everyone was of her!

The funny thing about this card is that I picked a green color that printed out teal on my printer, so I swapped out the green for a teal rhinestone and went with the flow. Since she is married with children, I went with a more mature look to her card and did a simple Congratulations and the year down the side. Added some glitter and rhinestones (I just love the sparkle).

Christmas Wishes Check out my featured Walkabout - My Ornament Collection

Antonella free quilling patterns printables and silhouette cut files
Antonella's collection of quilled ornaments

With Christmas literally around the corner, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ornaments... I am sharing them with you via Pinterest in my ..... Christmas Wishes Walkabout - My Ornament Collection... I included my santa ornament above, I don't have a pattern for him at this time, but he was just so cute!

These are a few of my favorite things... 

=============================


Nativity Ornament - I used lots of my "toys" when I made this ornament. I used my cuttlebug and cut my Spellbinders ovals, I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo and cut this lovely nativity, and was able to find the perfect quilling papers to match the colors I used... a touch of glitter (of course) and some beautiful pearls...


Snowflakes on your tree... "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas..." and here is the perfect ornament for you... You can change the colors and make them all white, all pink or blue for a Baby's 1st Christmas, the possibilities are endless


Some Spreuer technique ornaments... Quilled Cross ornament with easel card, Angel, and a Spreuer Christmas Tree...




The tender singing of these sweet blue birds will brighten your day as you watch them on your tree... quilling, Memory box dies, punch, and my spellbinders all make these ornaments sing...


Poinsettia Ornaments - these are easy to make, just run a thread through one of your petals and you are ready to go. I think I would add glitter to the second poinsettia ornament. Yes, I am addicted...


=============================


I hope you have a wonderful day!
