25 Cards In 25 Days: Numbers 10-14

Alright, I know I'm a wee bit behind in my posting, but you may have noticed that I altered the title of the post to reflect my new philosophy with this challenge.  As every crafter knows, some days you just aren't inspired to create anything.  For me, it may take days for me to come up with a design, but when I do, the creativity snowballs until I've created 4 or 5 cards in an evening.  So, I've altered my challenge to be 25 Cards in 25 Days: I have 25 days to post 25 cards, not necessarily a post everyday!

With that said, here is the next batch; only 11 more to go!

This one just came to me randomly.  I wanted to try making a pop-up card and this is what happened!

This is a very simple, but very effective card.  I thought that a simple fan-fold could make a good Christmas tree shape and the rest just came together.

25 Days of Cards 7

I had a vision about this one in AC Moore as I was buying the grungeboard I used for the poinsettia!

25 Days of Cards 1: Interactive Present

It's time again for my 25 Days o the 25 of Cards!  Once again, I promise that I will post 25 cards within the 25 days (although I may skip a few days and make them up in the next post!).  It's a BIG undertaking and I hope yu join me for the ride!

I love out-of-the-ordinary cards and I came up with this idea based on a flower pot card I made years ago.  They are super cute!!

Christmas is Coming!!

I've been busy lately with craft fairs and card  orders, so I'm just getting around to posting what I've been working on!  It's the busiest time of year for my crafting (25 Days of Cards beginning soon!), so I'll start the holidays a little early this year:

These are some gift boxes I made.  The large one is for a plethora of things for my sister and the small ones will each hold a pair of earrings.  There're great because they are very usuable after the holidays (which is why I made them in non-holiday colors!):

Cute and Quilled

Quilling is something that I really don't do as much as I should.  It's super easy and can create some very amazing things, particularly when combining multiple coils into a design.  This one, however, is just a simple one using the bunny ear/shield shape.  It makes GREAT little tulips!

Flip-Flop Fun...and not to do with footwear!

This is my very first "flip-flop" card.  My sister gave me one for my birthday last year, and I managed to finally work up the nerve to give it a shot.  I HATE cutting anything by hand, especially the precision cutting needed to make this card work.  I also thought there had to be an easier way.  So, I  made a shortcut for myself by creating a file in MTC (Can also be done with DS or Gypsy).  Now, all my future flip-flops can be made in a flash!

My 1st Flap Book

I had my 10-year high school reunion back in June and decided to use some of the pics from it to create my first flap book.  It was a lot of fun (both the reunion and the crafting!) and I now need to create this keepsake for a few friends as well!

Tee Shirt Fun!

I'm now ADDICTED to heat transfer vinyl.  Audrey Hepburn was my first attempt and now, I can't stop!

Since it's my birthday, I decided to share the last two birthday cards I made.  They just so happened to be for my brother (9/13) and my sister (8/25).  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!
