Easter Cards

Happy Easter!  I just got the cutest Easter dies from Paper Trey Ink, so I wanted to use them to make my Easter cards.  Here's what I came up with:

I got a new toy...

I have been doing quite a lot of scrapbooking and card making, even though I haven't been very good about posting here.  I really need to work on that.

I go to crops at least once per month, plus I scrap at home at least a couple times per month.  I usually create the layouts and then come back later to add headlines, journaling and embellishments.

I just got a Cricut Explore Air machine!  I have had a Cricut & Gypsy for YEARS, and I LOVED them. However, I decided that it was time to upgrade.  I got the Michael's special because it was teal.  As you can see, my craft room walls are teal and I am even wearing teal today - it's one of my favorite colors.

Now I am concentrating on adding headlines, journaling, etc to any pages that are already completed in my albums.  As I finish them, I will be posting!

When I was setting up my Explore, I was prompted to make this adorable card.  It used the cut and write features.

Another quick & easy birthday card

I'm still using up some scraps and creating cards.  I used some gorgeous CTMH paper for this one.  The happy birthday & butterfly stamp are both by Stampin' Up.

Quick & Easy Birthday Cards

I created some simple birthday cards to use up some scraps.  The paper is by Close to my Heart.  Both birthday stamps are by Stampin' Up and the Happy Birthday dies are by Papertrey Ink.

Quick & Easy Baby Cards

I needed a couple baby cards, so I used my new "baby" die by Papertrey Ink and the footprint stamp by Stampin' Up.  The paper was some Stampin' Up scraps I was trying to use up.
