Wedding /Anniversary Blog Hop

Happy Saturday
Welcome to this month's blog hop
The Creating Blog Hops Café
This month's theme is... Wedding or Anniversary. We have made some wonderful projects to share with you and to give some inspiration for those upcoming summer weddings.
Our Hostess for this hop is...
Our wonderful Sponsor for this month's hop is...
Alicia is giving one lucky person a wonderful
wedding themed page kit from Mambi.
So, sit back and grab yourself a Latte' as we dare to amaze you with our projects.
For today's Hop I have made the Bride & Groom 3-D boxes from the Cricut Cartridge Tie the Knot.  I knew this was the project I wanted to try as soon as I saw this was our hop theme this month.
For the bride Box I did some embossing with a Sizzix Folder that I have no clue what the name is sorry, If I find out I will surely come back and post it here. I did find out with the help of my FB cuttle-bugging group  it is from a 2 pack folder set called Floral Flourishes & Vines Set... It is one of my favorites and I have many many folders lol 
the Groom Box I embossed the inside layer for the shirt with Sizzix Scallops & Lines to give the added effect of a fancy shirt under there.

 I also wanted to take a side view to show you they are boxes, Thanks Cricut for doing all of the hard work for me.
So pleased with how easy these were to make... these would make wonderful favor gifts for the reception or for a bridal shower even.  also could be used with colored paper for prom.
Thanks for hopping with us today, I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Don't forget to leave me a comment and I would love for you to become a follower of my blog if you are not already.
Now it is time to hop some more :)
Your next stop will be with the very talented...
If  you get lost along the way here is the entire line-up for todays hop for you to get back on track and not miss a single project.

Graduation blog hop

Welcome to the Graduation Blog Hop, If you are already hopping along you should have came from Lori's awesome blog.  If you just stopped by my blog to visit and you want to start at the beginning of the hop please hop on over to Robin @ -

Today we have a small lineup packed with fun Graduation inspiration for you to enjoy.  Graduation is such a special milestone in ones life.  Rather it is from Kindergarten, Junior High, High School, College, a Trade School, Med School or any type of education to further yourself, it is a great achievement in a persons life and should not only be recognized but celebrated!!! 
Come see the fun projects I have to share with you today :)

I love making invites fun and this grad hat sure fits the bill for that.

showing the inside and top with the YOU folder embossing
 this is quite honestly my biggest seller for card cuts so far.  It is such a great cut and fold and then when you add embossing... wow and fun all at the same time.  These invites can become personalized not just by the color of the printed insert but also the color of the ribbon to match up school colors.  And then to change the embossed design to suit your needs, so fun
You can find these Star Embossed card shells in my Etsy store here
showing the underneath of the card and embossed with the stars folder


 I made this one for my sweet little Granddaughter last year for Kindergarten graduation along with a fry treat box filled with goodies :)
one with a handmade tassel

another invite with flowers & Swirls embossing folder and Black & Silver theme

I offer these as card cuts embossed in the folder you choose in my etsy store for those of you who don't have a cutting machine but would like to make these fun invites for your Grad.
I would also like to share a fun Graduation card and some other items I made for our Grandson who graduated 8th grade last year. this card looks like a cap and gown.

Some of the Decorations I created
these were some center pieces I created for the grad party and the center ones we filled with lots of candy as favor boxes for the guests (I made over 30 of these)

For my project I created a few fun Easter things.  First I want to share my Easter Peep shaped card. 
This was a card from a kit I got a long time ago from Paper Wishes Personal Shopper.  I love their fun card kits but I am not a big fan of fussy cutting things by hand.  Recently I purchased the new Scan and Cut from Brother, oh my ... I am in love lol  Now I have been dragging all of those old kits out and letting this new machine do most of the cutting work for me.  I even cut the felt with my new SNC after ironing on the adhesive backing and used the deep cut blade, wow it cut like a charm!!!
such a cute quote for the inside, "Happy Easter to one of my favorite peeps!".  I don't know if you can tell but the inside bow is popped up on foam squares.
for my next project I would like to share with you my Easter Bunny Candy Bar wraps
These were a lot of fun to make and they really make such cute - sweet gifts!!!  I designed the wraps with some files from my buddy and old partner Cheryl from Creative Kuts2, but you can find many of her fun files at I designed the bunny shape wrapper and first printed out the face and then cut around it with the wrapper cut, then added the ears and other layers and wrapped it around a Hershey bar.
On now for the very yummy part!!!
Look at this sweet offering you could win!
