I got Sure Cuts A Lot for my birthday ... fun!!! I knew what font I wanted to use for this without even looking at my list. I'm really happy with this fun layout. I cut the yellow paper by hand, and did a mirror copy of the facing page so that they lined up.
And here are two cards that I posted about but didn't want to share until the recipients got them.
This is the card I made for my friend whose baby was stillborn. I printed the poem on vellum and outlined the vellum with stickles. The wings are grungeboard painted silver and then covered in white glitter glue. I tied a feather string thing around it. The inside has metal baby hands and feet and the definition of the word "angel". (For the record, I don't know if my friend actually got this, she didn't mention it. But it's been about 6 weeks since I mailed it, I just have to pray it didn't get lost going over the border).
Sorry I didn't crop these, but you get the idea from the pictures.
And the card I made for my goddaughter that I posted about a couple of weeks ago. She loved it, my friend said she was making monkey sounds when she saw it. (She turned two).

The angel baby card is amazing Gwen. I don't think you could've made a more appropriate sweet card for the occasion. I'm sure it meant a lot to her.
And the layout is great! love the yellow background! creative!

Love, love, love the LO! I can't believe you cut the paper by hand and were able to make it look exactly the same on the other page! I am dying to know what font that is, I have to download that one! The angel card is just gorgeous, I am sure your friend was very touched by it (I hope she indeed got it!). The monkey card is so cute!
Awesome LO Gwen!! That is such a neat idea and you did it really well!! I am totally digging that font too. Great job!
Your cards are really nice too.
