Mom’s Birthday

It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday. And I made her a card. :) It’s what I do. The card that I made for her is today’s blog post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson, LLC. I’ve actually been working on the card for a while since I really wanted it to be special. There’s some things you need to know about my mom…

My mom is my chauffeur (since I can’t drive), she is who I talk to every day (either by text or by phone) — she keeps me grounded. My mom makes me laugh. She gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s going on. She hasn’t gone into her “golden years” gracefully. She’s gone kicking and screaming, dancing, and laughing. And I wanted to make my mom a birthday that would make her smile.

I made this card for her to let her know that I celebrate her every day. And that her birthday is just one more day to tell her I love her. 

The card for my Mom’s Birthday can be seen today in the CLASSroom along with the full tutorial on how to make it, if you should want to see my process. (With the exception of my coloring process – yaaawwwn!) 

All of the supplies that I used to make this card I have listed below along with a few alternatives. If any of the items are currently out of stock with ellenhutson.com, you can request to be put on the waitlist for the item for when it comes back in stock (love that feature!).

I hope that you like today’s card and that it makes you smile as much as it makes ME smile. :)

New Challenge – Photo Inspiration!

New Month – Photo Inspiration! with the ladies of the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog ! This month’s challenge is sure to inspire you…aaaand we have a fabulous sponsor, as usual. So, check out the details AND my project below.

March 2016 Inspiration Photo

Isn’t this Photo Inspiration just amazing?!!! And just wait until you see what the Design Team has created. JAW DROPPING!!! I kid you not.

Our gracious sponsor this month is the ever so amazing Waffle Flower Crafts. I seriously love them. Amazing company and Nina (head honcho) is just a total gem. She is offering up a VERY generous gift certificate to our monthly winner. How awesome is that?

Waffle Flower Crafts

Now…onto my project! I used the New Challenge – Photo Inspiration and I die cut (from glitter paper) a few oval shapes (no egg dies in this house!), then I created the background using some beautiful acrylic paints, shimmery sprays, and stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts. I used Gel Medium and applied a paper doily to one side. Then I die cut the word “Perfect” several times from black cardstock. I then stamped the word “together” using Versafine and heat emboss it using clear embossing powder.

The “eggs” and the word “together” were popped up using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. A little green lawn was also die cut and added to the bottom for a little additional fun.

A Sympathy Card

I have a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog by 3L® blog today. That card is a Sympathy Card.  I made it for my dear friend, Holly. I wish I had words for what Holly means to me. Knowing that she is in pain over the loss of her father just tears me up inside.  She is one of the most gentle, caring, smartest, loving, amazing human beings I am privileged to know. 

Making this card for her was so hard. Making ANY Sympathy Card is hard. You just want to hold the person you care about, tell them everything will be okay (even though you feel like such a liar), let them know how much they mean to you. But somehow…it all seems like it’s not enough. You can’t bring back their loved one. That loss can’t be undone. No words, no card, nothing can un-break the heart…not right now.

I made this Sympathy Card for Holly. Because I love her. And I feel her pain because she is like a sister to me. And I wish I could take her pain away.  I hate that she is hurting. That her whole family is grieving. Her father sounded like an amazing man. He had to have been. He raised a wonderful daughter.
