Cheerleader Frames

So the other night we had a Reunion with the cheerleaders from High School! Man that brought back a lot of memories! One of my friends suggested that we all bring a photo from back in the day, so that got me to thinking (scary huh!) I made some cute picture frames to hand out!

I cut a rectangle shape at 5x6.5 in black cardstock, then cut another one with dimensions 5x6.5 exteior and 4x6 interior to make the burgandy frame. I then used scissors (aren't they outdated? j/k) to cut out sheet protectors to cover the hole of the burgandy frame. Glued it together using Aileens tacky glue. and then glued the burgandy frame over the black base leaving the top unglued to be able to add a photo and change it out as necessary.
Of couse I used my favorite pace for the files SVG Cuts!! For the Cheerleaders I used the Game Day file, it comes with pom pom girls, football players, cheerleaders, megaphone! This kit really took me down memory lane.

Valentines Celebration for the Kiddos!

Check out this Valentines spread for my Kiddos! They thought it was a wonderful sight after school! I didn't let them eat everything at the same time, lol, although my oldest wanted to!

The chocolate covered strawberries are placed on top of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting! My husband was in heaven, so was the youngest...(check out the pic below)
 A quick basket for the boys, took about 5 minutes or less to put together. Use a package of sucker sticks or wooden skewers, add a glue dot to the stick choice and attach to the chocolate! Glue dots are extremely sticky and hold up to the pressure of a King size candy bar vs a 18 month old!!! lol (he couldn't get it off the stick and he was trying pretty hard! Check out the pic below of Hunter enjoying wearing a cupcake!

Till next time, Happy Crafting!

Lego Valentines

Check out these Lego valentines my son and I made. We used basic shapes in SCAL2 and created a lego man! Then we cut them out of foam using the cricut. It cut pretty nice and my son loved gluing the pieces together with glue dots onto his Valentines, and drawing the faces on the Lego men.

Cowboy Birthday

Here's a birthday card for my brother in law. Found a cute paperstack called "all about boys". This  stack made this card super simple to put together.

Cut the 12X12 paper in half, use SVG file for Happy Birthday pop up. Glue the 2 pieces together and Ta da!  I cut a little down around the edges so that it isn't quite 6X6 finshed product but its pretty close.

Made an envelope using the Premium Popup cards template.
