Music Themed Anniversary Easel Card!

Today my sister called me and asked me to make her a card to give to her husband for their 8th anniversary. She says he gave her a card today and asked her if she got him a card too. So she played it off and said she was having me make one. They are definitely a quirky couple and I knew a romantic traditional card wouldn't work for them. So I made it music oriented since her husband loves to DJ.Luckily I finished it just in time since today is her anniversary! TFL!

Christmas Cards- Window & Pop up house card

So I made these cards today for my uncle because I wasn't sure he would like the first I made anyways here's the instructions and materials to each one, TFL!

The base of the card is cut at 6x12
Then I cut another piece of patterned cardstock at 6x12 and placed it on my cricut and placed a window in the middle on my gypsy.
Afterwards I scored the card base at 6 inches
And the paper with the window is scored at 3,6,9 inches
The paper with the window has adhesive only on the sides and is glued to the card base

Winter Scene Photo Cubes as Xmas Gifts

So today I was perusing around Target for Christmas gifts but I wanted to get something inexpensive because I really can't afford to get anyone something expensive. And then I saw some cute little photo cubes in the dollar section of Target and I thought how I could totoally make a little scene in there and give them as little gifts! So I bought about six of them and I'll be giving these as gifts. It was super inexpesive just look at the materials I used below!:) Oh and sorry about the mess around it, my editing program wasn't working. TFL!

Frankenstein from Mini Monsters finally has a wife!:)

I wanted to make a card with Frankenstein and his wife. But I wanted to use Mini Monsters.
