Two cards and my list :)

Actually, before I share my latest, I have to say that the video links at the top are kind of scary. Some of the expressions on the women (because they're caught in mid-word) are freaky!

These cards took longer than they should have. The glitter glue was one reason, as it had to dry. But I also had Cricut issues (finally changed my blade in the middle of these). And like my last layout, I got REALLY distracted online at the same time. I swear I have ADD!

Jordan turns 6 on Wednesday. Blue is her favorite color, so I made her a blue card. Smile It's really cute in person.

The 6 is covered with glitter glue, very cool. Smile

And here's the card I made for my birth board birthday exchange baby (sure hope she doesn't lurk here!). If you remember the diaper soaker I made for her, this matches the theme. Smile

Glitter glue created "jewels" atop the crown

And the 1 in the corner is actually cut out of the card, I put the cream colored paper behind it to make it stand out (and that matches her name on the front).

And here's my layout list - I print a new one out every 2 months or so. I used to have the 8x10 photo layouts mixed in, but they're really a different breed to me, so I finally broke them out separate on my list.

I need to tackle those layouts AND work on my cards for the swap. But I'm working on an idea for those. Smile

Cute cards Gwen! I'm sure your daughter and birth board buddy will love them! I was going through my paper scrapping stuff the other day as I threw together a card for my newly born niece and I was going though my scraps that I had cut with my cricut.... and there they sit.. and sit.... I really need to break that machine out and put it to some use! (Sorry about the rambling.. perhaps I had ADHD as well?!) Since I'm a psychologist, I'm going to go ahead and diagnose us both! ROFL

Cards are cute and the list is killing me. And you call me OCD?

Great cards! I love your list! I need one like that. Sometimes I feel like I can't scrap because I don't know where to begin. I'm so far behind.

*I* don't call you OCD, *YOU* do! ROFL

If I didn't have that list, I'd lose a lot of time trying to figure out what to try to tackle, despite having the pictures in front of me. I'm such a list girl. (my house is a wreck, I'd never be classified as OCD ... but I'm definitely a Type A personality)

Cute cards Gwen. I too am a list girl, but oddly enough I just organize my pics and go. No list for scrapping.

I am cracking up over your list! I have made one also but only when I want to send my prints in so I needed to know what pages I was planning. Love the glitter on the cards and you are too funny!

Cute cards! I bet they'll be loved! Knowing that you just mentioned your dislike for glitter, I'm impressed that you broke out the glitter glue! Wink

I don't have a list, it would be a bit too overwhelmingly long!

Great cards, I'm sure they are adorable in person with all that glitter on the first.

Love that you have a list. I make lists sometimes and they really help me get pages done.

Very cute cards! I really need to do a list like that, I have no idea where to begin when I sit down to scrap.

my house is a wreck, I'd never be classified as OCD

My house is also a wreck but I still have OCD, you can have OCD tendencies toward certain things but not in other areas, if that makes sense. I even took an OCD quiz on FB and just knew that it was going to say that I wasn't OCD and yet even with my answers it said I was definitely OCD, I seriously had no idea how it came up with that. lol

Those cards are really lovely!

I'm laughing at your list, but at the same time thinking that i should do one... I would do it on a spreadsheet though. Lol

Those are very cute, love the crown one! And you're so organized with all the layouts you want to do - I really need to do a list, but can't ever be bothered!
