jets card


the card opening up……………….the card closed…………….


the inside! BACK STORY: My mother asked me to make one of her bff’s a card. She loves the jets and I didn’t want to make the card to boyish so I added some glitz with the paper. I put her favorite players number as well as a smart comment on the inside. My mother is a colts fan…so giving away ANYTHING jets killed her! LOL! I was pleased with the card and wanted to try a different style.

happy birthday ron


My father in law works on cars A LOT!! I thought of him when I seen this car on the Holiday cakes cartridge. I used the really shinny red paper from the Citrus cardstock pack (dcwv) and the car paper from the Stack 6(dcwv). I added his name on the plate..ended up really cute..for a guy card. Smile

quick grad card


I just threw this card together for my cousins grad party. The school colors are red, white and black. I didn’t want it to be too girly but also not too boring. I added a drop slot on the inside for money.

challenge 4


Mothers Day themed. I made this cute but simple mothers day card from the target dollar bin paper. I wrote all of the mushy mothers day stuff on the inside. My mom loved it!! I also made one for my mother-in-law.


challenge 9


Glitz and glam. I sparkled up this butterfly!!

challenge 11


Green, pink and black. HELLO KITTY!!!

challenge 5

3d challenge. I made this card for my best friends birthday. I added several pop dots to make it as 3D as I could. Some extra bling on the side from the dollar tree. I wrote a nice story on the inside of how we met. She will love it!


challenge 8


Summer themed project. I killed 2 birds with 1 stone. I wanted to make a couple of cards for my kid’s teachers and this challenge allowed me to do that. Inside says “enjoy your summer” The paper is from a target dollar set..again. I LOVE THOSE!!

challenge 6



A birthday card just isnt complete without a cake. Smile (partytime by Christy Lyle)

Challenge 1



Anything cupcake!! I used paper from the sweet stack from dcwv. I found a page that had 3 patterns. I cut out the cupcakes and pop dotted them. I really like the green and brown look.

Challenge 7

Scrapbook page


This challenge was easy to do. I have over 400 pictures organized…WAITING…on me to scrapbook. The bottom picture is of my daughters butt cheeks. One says “spoiled” and the other says “brat”. LOL

Challenge 10

Pet!! Howdy!!


(Latte and Glitter stack from dcwv)

My pink stamper national scrapbook day challenges…#12

Something with a kid theme.

I had my 2 kids help out with their mother’s day gifts to their grandmas. They used their hands on the outside of the cards as well as stamps for the bags. My son drew a cute little picture on the inside especially for his grandmas. I wrote “From our hands to you heart” on the card.

easter goody bags for school



So…not only did I make goody bags for my son’s kindergarten class BUT…I let my kids help. WOW!! IT TOOK FOREVER! They argued who would do the glueing of the bunnies and then who would do the cuttlebugging. I tried to limit my daughter to putting the pop up dots on the bunnies and my son to the cuttlebug and glueing. I love doing these types of projects but next time will do them while “their” asleep. LOL

first pages of the month


I am trying to make a few pages a week and I had actually made the so sweet cupcake for a card. Of course I made it too big the first time, so I finished it for a page. This picture was taken in 2008 after I had my daughter. How the time fly’s.


In this collage picture, my daughter was 5 months old and my son was almost 4. This was BEFORE they fought all the time..oh I wish I still had those days. I didn’t want to do anything too fancy because the pictures on the collage say enough for me.

hatching chick


Again, I tried the dash’s and I am now hooked. I’ve used these same dots in several cards. I really like them. If I really dig into all of my paper, I think I have LOTS of dot paper. I need to use them up. LOL

more easter…

Easter bunny!! I HAD to add dots to the bunny…I don’t know why..I just did. I had a piece of crinkled paper and that’s what I used for the background. White ribbon and the bunny is now happy. Smile


easter basket…


I have to admit that I have seen lots of projects online where people are using the white pens to make stitches. I thought I would give it a try on a few things and see how it turns out. I like it! I seen the checkered yellow paper and it screamed BASKET to me. I will probably make a bigger one for a page later. (jung-a-low bung-a-low by the paper studio). I used dollar tree foam stickable stickers for the eggs. I think this is one of the cutest cards I have made this easter.

easter cards of 2011



I love this bunny! I used stickles for the poka-dot and glitter bellys. I like changing every card I make, which makes it more time consuming, but it’s a habit of mine. I used some random paper as well as paper from jung-a-low bung-a-low baby(the paper studio) and the super paper pad(american girl crafts). I really like both pads and need to use them more. I have more easter cards to come as well as a few pages to make this year as well. Happy early easter to everyone!

goodie bags for co-workers



I decided to make a few of my co-workers goodie bags filled with chocolate!! They all appreciated them Smile. I love the hello kitty cartridge because the cards are really easy to make and QUICK!!

whats going on with nova

I have been taking some time off of my project making as I reorganize my photos. I seemed to have my pictures in order and then when its time to make a page I am looking for this or that. I have several birthday's to catch up on but I need to find the invitations for the page..and I know I have them somewhere in my mess of a room. :) LOL I got a deal at Micheal's a couple of weeks ago on accordian files (1.29 each!) so I am grouping pictures and matching pieces with them so when I want to make a page..its doesnt take me as long. I love making cards and need to focas this year on my pages. I work alot and wish I had more time to spend in my scrapbooking room. Thanks for following me if you are. I get sooooo excited when I see a new follower. Ill keep the posts coming. Nova :)

Extra special love…


Party time by Christy Lyle (birthday paper)


Blossoms & Butterflies by DCWV (butterfly paper)

I used a butterfly stamp from a Hobby Lobby set.

Fishing pro

I made this card for a grandpa. I found this poem online and added it inside. Here is the poem:


My Grandpa and I do a lot of things together.
But fishing with my Grandpa
is the best ever!
I love going to the lake
when the sky is all blue.
I love riding in my Grandpa's boat too.
The next trip to the lake,
I don't want to miss.
Just being with my Grandpa…
is better than catching fish!

Under the rainbow is a pot of gold…

008 009

I bought the Hello Kitty font cartridge because I thought the font was cute, but found myself using the Hello Kitty images. I soon found out that my daughter LOVES Hello Kitty! So..I purchased the Greetings cartridge and LOVE..LOVE..LOVE it! So many basic images but so cute! Every image can be made into a simple card. This rainbow I made a duplicate cloud to go on the inside. The pot of gold is from Paper Doll Dress up. GLITTER finishes it off. This is a card I will make more of..for sure. :)

Stars are forever…


The star paper I used on this card is from A boys universe by Paper Studio. The metallic paper I used from the cardstock that matches the Dots, stripes and plaids paper by DCWV. It matches perfectly.



Basic and simple card from Hello Kitty! This was sooo quick and easy to make..but cute.
