Valentine's Day #2

For this card, I used the cupcake cut out from the Home Decor cart. As you can see, I love working with ribbon so instead of a cherry on top I decided to put a little bow.

I used my computer for the sentiment and while looking through the clipart I found the cutest cupcake so I had to add it to the card.

Well I hope you guys like it.

The "MINIONS" have their work to do!!!

With Valentine's Day is just around the corner...

I decided to stop procrastinating and start on my Valentine cards for the hubby and the family. So here you have the first one...

I left the inside of the card blank for now until I decide who it's going to go to. I stamped the cutest stamps in the back, one is "XO" that I purchased at Hobby Lobby and right below it is one that says "hand made by" purchased at Michael's, but the picture was not coming out right. Hopefully I find better light next time and show you guys.

I am satisfied with the way it turned out! I hope you guys like it and it inspires someone:O)

Here is a list of the materials that I used...

-Playtime Cricut Cartridge for the background
-Home Decor cartridge for the sentiment
-Red, blue, pink, and purple cardstock from HL
-Heart printed paper
-V-Day ribbon from HL
-Black, white, and red gel pens
-V-Day stamp "XO" from hobby lobby
-"hand made by" stamp from Michael's

Thoughts Might Evolve: Recent Projects

Since I am into many different things I decided to show you some of the stuff I have been recently working on. Please let me know what you think.

The first thing I want to show you guys is a ceramics project I have been working on. It is a project for school. We were assigned a treasured object project. Since I am in LOVE with Hello Kitty I decided to replicate her and give her my own twist.

Here is where my inspiration came from and... she is!

She is not finished yet I am still working on her. She has been fired in the kiln but she still needs to be glazed(painted). As you can see I used mixed media on her. She is made of buffalo wallow clay. She stands at a little above 24 inches and she weights about 35 pounds (although she is hollow in the inside). I made her tutu and her bow myself. Since I love skulls, I decided to give her my own twist. I am so proud to announce she was picked to be displayed in the student art show (after she is finished).

on to the next project....

Since it's close to Valentine's Day, I was inspired by some pictures that I saw online to make some bracelets for the girls in my family and a couple of friends.
I decided to make some with a red rose and some with a pink rose  

Here is how they look on your wrist. I am extremely content how they came out.
on to the next project...

I had been wanting to make myself some feather earrings so I went by Hobby Lobby to purchase the supplies the other day. Here they are completely finished, I can say that I Love the way the turned out. I am so proud of myself. I am going to make some with different color feathers so that I can match my outfits.

Since I was already in the earring making mood I decided to make myself some earring to wear on Valentine's Day. Also, my inspiration for these earrings came from the book.
Inspired by the book
...and a bracelet

Showers of Love

So I made this card today using my Cricut (oh how I love it). I recently purchased the Hello Kitty Cartridge and had not yet had the chance to use it. Since I am pretty new to this crafting and card making thing I am just beginning to explore what to do with it so please forgive me if this card is not all that fancy. Hopefully I can improve with time, let's just hope :O)
So for this card I used...
-Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge
-Home Decor  Cricut Cartridge (the inside of the card has the word "Love" cutout
-Cardstock, Valentine's day stickers, and ribbon purchased at Hobby Lobby
-Red and silver glitter glue
-Pink gel pen
