Baby Name Frames!

Hey there!  Hope you are having a great day!

Today I have a couple of frames for a couple of newborn baby girls.  No, they are not twins, but they are born into the same family, within a week of each other.

I believe that names have meanings.  That being said, it is very important that you know the meaning of a name, before naming a child.  That is what you will be calling them, every time you call their name. 


 I made them very similar, but not exact.  I took an inexpensive frame and painted it.  Then I just printed off the information on a card and decorated as I wanted. 😊

I used my Cricut  Explore & Design space to make the flowers and the matting  in the frame. 

Hope you are inspired to do something like this!  Have a beautiful day!

Blessings,

Boat Wedding!

Well hello there!  Today, I have a wedding card for a couple, who gets married on a boat.  Not a bad way to get married, right?  

There are a few different elements from a few different Cartridges on this one.  They are as follows:
The bride & groom are from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.
The boat & water are from the Stand and Salute Cartridge.
The cattail border is from the Paper Dolls Everyday Cartridge.
The smaller trees are from the Heritage Cartridge.
The larger, darker tree is from the Botanicals Cartridge

As you can see, I used a blue background for the sky and piled everything else on top of that.  First I attached the large dark tree and then the smaller, lighter trees.  After putting the boat together, I popped it up and then placed the bride and groom where I wanted them.  After that, I put in the cattails and the water on top of that.

This is a 5x7 card and as you can see, I left a space at the bottom for the sentiment. I also edged the entire card with a Color Box Cat's Eye ink pad - these are great for edging!

I hope this inspires you to make something beautiful and custom, for someone in your life!  Or, you could have me do it!πŸ˜‰ 
Thanks so much for stopping by & hope you have a beautiful day!

Flower Box Utensil Jars - Grey

Hello!!! Hope you are having a terrific day!

Today, I have something that includes very little paper! 😏 Can you believe it?!πŸ˜ƒ  Well, it is true and I have to say, I am excited about it!



** I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

I took a Flower Box and painted it White - then I took Silver paint and rubbed it around the edges.
I painted some jars Grey and then wrapped some Jute around the top, with the tag I made - using my Explore and Design Space.  I cut out the tag(Ashlyn's Alphabet) and the utensils(Fast Food).
I will have these for sale on my Facebook business page (at some pointπŸ˜‰), keep checking back...

On the line! - Guy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a fisherman - hooked and on the line!  Yes, this is a guy card!  And, YES, there is pink on the card... Have you ever heard the saying, "Pink in the morning, sailors warning, pink at night sailors delight"?  That is why the pink! πŸ˜‰

Now that we have that settled, let's get into what I used to make it.  The fish is from the cartridge Camp Out and the water from Going Places.  I used them with my Explore Machine and Design Space.
I just used regular black thread for the line and I used Best Creations Pop-ups under the fish. - (these seem to be my favorite!) 

Well, I hope you enjoyed it!  Have a beautiful day!
