kite layout and a LOT of cards (added more post #13)

I had to wait until I made a layout to justify yet another card post from me. Wink LOL! I tried to get in as much card making/scrapbooking as I could the last couple days. My friend let me borrow 5 other carts this week, so it was fun. Here are a few:

Kite layout

kite is from Pooh and Friends cartridge.

close-up, so you can see the awesome Stickles at work. Wink Really, they look better IRL!


I believe the bride and groom were from Stretch your Imagination, greeting is from Wild Card.


cuts are from Celebrations, scallop is from Plantin Schoolbook and the beautiful pink "beads" are from Tia. Biggrin (You can't really see them well in the pic.)


Roo is from Pooh and Friends, balloon is from Celebrations. I cut a couple extra balloons, so use the stars from the insides to decorate the card. I think I'm going to add a baseball cap to his head after looking at this. Wink It'll go to a little boy for his birthday.


bee and flowers are from Pooh, font is Lyrical Letters


can't remember which cart the houses are from, the font is Lyrical Letters. It's a transparency card that closes from the floss sewed to the buttons. Smile


greeting is from Lyrical Letters


owl is storybook (LOVE it!), crown is Alphalicious, font is Lyrical Letters


circle is George, owl is storybook, font is Lyrical Letters, branches are from Gwen (I believe she used Zooballoo right?), hearts are DonJuan


greeting is Storybook, frames are Home Accents.

these two cards were EASY cards I created just for fun. Wink


greeting is from Lyrical Letters

Whew!

Wow Charys. Those are amazing. I pretty much love all of them. One of them was a little too stickle happy for me, but most were an awesome balance of sparkly, cricut and Charys. You make me want my Cricut now before Black Friday sales.

ETA: Went back and looked... it's the Roo card with the hat. I love the card in general, but everything is stickled on it... I just feel like if only Roo, or the stars, or selective parts of both were stickled, it would have had a greater impact. It's an adorable card regardless, it's just a minor thing really.

Thank you Michelle...actually the card that's over stickled for me is the Mother's day card. LOL, I think I'll back off a wee bit on the stickles...I was having a bit too much fun. Wink But looking at them today I think I went overboard...so I totally agree. I used Star dust on the Mother's day card (and pretty much every other card too). It's like clear stickles.

I know what you mean.... I over stickled when I first had them. It took a bit to reign it in.

I think the Mother's Day one didn't bug me as much because my MIL pretty much only loves over the top girly and glittery so I just pictured it going to her. LOL
