Time For Adventure: Create a Card

Adventure can be described as an exciting or very unusual experience, to take the chance of, or to take the risk involved. 

Do you know someone who is going on an adventure?

Perhaps they are graduating from high school or college, going on a mission trip, or moving out on their own for the first time—and you want to wish them well in said ADVENTURE, this is the perfect card to create.

Luxurious Layered Cards using Forever Yours Scrapbook Collection

Creative Memories new Forever Yours Collection was released ahead of this year’s wedding season.  I know that I’ll be attending a few bridal showers and two weddings this year – one being my son’s – and I’ll need some cards for gift-giving.

I created two beautiful layered cards with lots of texture and pretty details using the Forever Yours Paper, Stickers, Embellishments, Laser Cut Embellishments and Vellum Paper.  Our new 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch added the final pièce de résistance to these cards.

10 Steps to a Custom Woodland Whimsy Girl Baby Card

I was recently at a baby shower for a friend. The mother-to-be is obsessed with cute foxes, so the location was beautifully decorated with handcrafted woodsy-themed baby decorations, the food was cleverly named with forest creatures in mind (e.g., bare meatballs with sauce served on the side were labelled as Bear Balls), and the games were equally as well-thought-out and personalised for the future mum. The only thing that wasn’t well-thought-out and customised? The baby shower cards.

As I watched her open card after card and gift card after gift card (all bearing the same company name and image, mind you), it dawned on me how special a handmade baby shower card could be.

A Bright and Beautiful Baby Shower

Today I am so excited to be sharing this project with you! I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine and to create all of the party decor and elements I used the DIGITAL Cake My Day Collection!

Everything was pre-designed on my computer and then I sent it off to have it printed on cardstock at my local print shop. It was super fast, super fun to make, and best of all — it knocked the socks off the mama-to-be, which is always fun!

So, let’s get started! What I did first was downloaded the Cake My Day collection from the Creative Memories website. Once the files were purchased, I uploaded them into my software and started to design!
