Happy Birthday! April 27, 2012

A special day here tomorrow, as my darling daughter turns 9!   Where did the time go?  I can hardly believe that her childhood is almost gone!  How time is fleeting these days!


I wanted to share a card I made for one of the lovely girlies in my life  – my favorite stamps are the kids from C.C.Designs and this one is part of their birthday line and has a pretty ribbon in her hands to celebrate.  I used an older paper pad to create with and added a popped up sentiment.   A button with twine adds a special touch to the card.

Here’s hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for checking me out today!

Picture Perfect April 25, 2012

Filed under: Birthdays,For Sale,Ribbons — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Cameos and Silhouettes are all the rage right now, so here is a card I made with my take on them. 

When I envisioned it, it was so girly and frilly,  so I went with the seam binding gathered behind the image and added the gem to her hair for sparkle.  I saw this paper and had to do something totally girly with it – so fancy!

I love the look of the lacy papers and all of the swirls and toile look to it.  Simple and elegant!

Have a great day – thanks for stopping by!

Showcase of Sports April 23, 2012

Filed under: cricut,For Sale,Gifts,Kids,Scrapbooking,Sports — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Here are the last few sports boards I made for my nieces and nephew for Christmas.  These are the “original” boards that I started with.  My nieces are the ones who inspired me to start making these.  They are so into their sport – whatever it may be at a given time – and they are at that age that they like to hang things on their walls, so I thought this would make a great way to combine their loves! 


I started out with a hard artist canvas that was 12″x16″, but the others I showed are 12″x12″ ad are stretched canvas.  I like changing things up a bit now and then!  On to the show of sports for today…..


Jordan is my oldest niece and is very into her swimming and is on several teams.  Saw all these glitzy papers and HAD to create!


Emily does do swimming and diving, but while making these, she was also on a soccer team and

doing very well, so I thought I’d highlight that!


Allison is the youngest in the family, but loves to swim as well. She is also on several teams and doing great! 

I couldn’t resist the dolphins for her!


This last board is for my nephew, Ryan.  He is an all-around sports guy and participates in so many that I couldn’t choose just one for him.  So, I used a sporty paper with lots of balls and equipment and highlighted some of his favorites.


Okay, hope you enjoyed the “showcase” of sport boards I have made.  Maybe they will inspire you to create something for those you love, or if you want me to make one for you, just give a yell!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Turtle Fun April 19, 2012

Filed under: Birthdays,Kids,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by again today!  I know what you are thinking… three days of posts in a row?!?!?  🙂  Ahh, yes, I have been in a blogging mood this week so you get to reap the rewards!


Thought I’d show you a fun card I made – just LOVE this little turtle!  I couldn’t resist getting him since birthday cards seem to be what I need to make the most of!  I made him more masculine than my normal cards, but I thought that even the little men in my life would get a kick out of getting him in the mail. 🙂


Fun coloring and an easy card layout made this card a fast and easy one to create!

Off for more fun today – hope you are getting lots accomplished this week as well!

More Sport Boards April 18, 2012

Filed under: cricut,For Sale,Gifts,Kids,Scrapbooking,Sports — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Well, I promised I’d be back with more of the sporty fun to show you today, so here goes the next round! 🙂


This family is sports oriented, but everyone has their “own” sport!  So here is what I came up with for these friends.

Lindsey, with her volleyball.  It’s hard to find and dress up the black and white of the volleyball papers

that are out there, but I did add some ribbons and glitter papers!


Their oldest son, Brendan, had fun on his basketball team this winter.


And Connor is all about the baseball!


So, as you can see, I tried to individualize each of the boards to make it a special gift.   The photo spot that is on each is also just a 4″x6″ white cardstock piece so that the parents (or kids) can simply slip in a printed picture.  I also told everyone that if they use very little or a removable adhesive, they can swap out the pictures whenever they get a new one that they like (or if they switch teams, etc.)


Now, of course, my kids are bugging me to make them one for their rooms… guess I gotta keep craftin’!

Take care – enjoy the sunshine today!

Another Gift Idea April 17, 2012

Filed under: cricut,For Sale,Gifts,Kids,Sports — anotherkatecreation @ 5:49 am

Well, now that all of our Christmas gifts have finally been delivered to the recipients :), I can show you some of the new ideas I had this year.  I tried this new canvas art for some of the kids on my list and thought it would be a fun thing for them to have to decorate their rooms. 

I have neices, nephews, and friends that are all involved with sports and activities that I tried to match and decorate for. 

Here are some of the kids from one family that is very involved in Tae-Kwon-Do.


Their oldest daughter, Morgan, is a cutie in her white uniform!

Aidan is really into the sport and has quite a kick!

Declan, their youngest son, is too cute in his uniform too!

Well, that’s it for that family :).  Tomorrow I’ll show you some of the others I have done for the other sporty kids I know!

Thanks for stopping by!
