I learned this new technique to make a dahlia flower and it is awesome! And surprisingly, it's not difficult at all. They turned out so pretty.

Birth Announcements

Here are some birth announcements I made for my son. I couldn't decide which ones I liked best so I tried out several. This card was made using the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Baby Talk:
Same stamp set. I used a piece of patterned paper and cut it in the shape of the buggy instead of coloring it in. I love how this one turned out:
I really wanted to try a criss-cross card. I'm happy with how they turned out. It was kind of time-consuming, but not difficult. I added mini buttons or brads for the wheels:
This was my favorite criss-cross card. I used Stampin' Up! Pool Party paper and the Bundle of Joy stamp set. I stamped the bear on colored polka dot paper so all I had to do was cut him out and stick him on! Super cute:

Let's Get Started

Thanks for checking out my craft blog. I was inspired by my sister-in-law to set it up mainly for the purpose of putting down my thoughts and ideas of projects I want to do. Also I will post pictures of crafts I have already made. I have two specialties: cards and name frames. But of course, my skill is not limited to those. I'm always willing to try new things. I'm also open to any thoughts or ideas you may have for me to help me improve. I'm fairly new to the world of paper crafts so I know there's still a lot to learn.

So here we go. Let's get started!!
