Hey Everyone!

How are y'all doing???

I have been busy!  I wanted to make a new announcement to you!  I have joined Stampin' Up!  I am now a new demonstrator.  Actually, I joined in May of this year, but I consider myself new still!  I have a lot of learning to do still.  But I am having a lot of fun learning!

So, I will soon be keeping up with posting here as well as my Stampin' Up blog too!  If you would like you can check out that blog as well.  It's Cricketscreativecorner.com.  It is mostly for my Stampin' Up business.  This blog is for everything.

I hope you can take some time to check it out.  I will also post things about Stampin' Up here as well. I will share with you all that I am working on.

Keep checking back here.  I know it's been a while since me and mom have posted up on this blog.  We have been busy with life.  As you all well know.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Here are another set of cards I made for myself and my daughter in Alabama.

I got a little lazy on these. The top layer is made from 8 1/2 x 11 print paper. I cut the size I needed and glued it on top of white cardstock that was folded. I tend to make cards of different sizes. I make my own envelopes because I like to vary the sizes of the cards I make. Usually, I make "Thank You" cards using the standard A2 size since I have lots of A2 envelopes.
 I fussy cut the angel (Unity Co.) and used pop-up glue dots on the angel.Then, I just stamped the card with a sympathy stamp (Unity Co.)

I believe the next set of cards were made using a Unity stamp. The corners were punched with a Stampin' Up corner punch. The top layer on each card is made with cardstock.                           

Birthday cards

After being missing in action for about 2 years, I decided Kristine and I really need to get back to what we like to do-crafting.
The "Birthday" cards below are a few of the cards I made about a month ago for myself and my daughter in Alabama.

The top layer for these cards were made from 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock. I used butterfly stamps and a mini flower stamp (company ?). I stamped the entire cardstock with the stamps. Then, I cut the cardstock into 4 parts. Next, I used Stampin' Spot ink pads from Stampin' Up. The embellishment was the "candy dots"
