February 2009 Cherish Club Layouts

Girl Layout

Boy Layout

Cherish Club is this Thursday, February 19th at 9am or 7pm.
We are doing a birthday theme. Please note that you do NOT have to do the stamping of the title and tags if you do not wish to. These layouts can very easily be used for another theme! Also note that they are both the same layout from our Imagine How To Program. The second page on the boy layout is simply rotated to fit horizontal photos. The possibilities with these layouts are endless! The hostess this month is Lindsey A. Hope to see you this Thursday!

Happy Valentines Day!

I don't think I have EVER created so many things for one holiday! I was busy last week, helping my kids stamp 3x3 valentines for their classmates, making these adorable sucker cover valentines for close friends as well as creating cards for those dear to my heart!

This one says "paws down your the best - Happy Valentine's Day! " inside.

This one was of coarse for my hubby. I had to freehand the birdie as I don't have that adorable bird stamp set yet from the spring catalog yet! :( It didn't turn out exactly how I would have liked but it worked!

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

My little boy is having a birthday party soon and he loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Here are a few ideas I came up with for the invites.
This one is a stair-stepper card

This one I used our cool Circle Window Charms to make a Mickey Mouse head! I thought this card was a little lacking something though.

I'm sure I'm not done making stair-stepper cards! Mine is done with a 5x5 base when folded completely up. Here are the folding instructions for the base of my stair-stepper card:
You will need:
1 - 5x12 strip of cardstock
1 - 5x10 strip of cardstock
1.) Starting at the top of the 5x12 strip, fold down 2 inches. Then fold back 2 inches (as to make a paper fan), 4 inches from the top.
2.) The next step measures 3 1/2 inches. Fold at 7 1/2 inches then at 11 inches. You will have a 1 inch tab left.
3.) Fold the 5x10 strip of cardstock in half.
4.) Glue the 1 inch tab to the inside front of the second strip of cardstock to attach your last step.
There ya go! You now have a fun card base to decorate til' your tickled pink! :)
