Baby cards?...Mommy Cards!?

Uhmmm well, I had no idea babies had their own " business" cards!!! They are actually called Mommy Cards.This is sooo new to me... but you know I think it is still very cute and fab!

This is how I understand they work: when you go to a B-day party you prepare your gift and you add one of these cute cards to the gift so the parents and the kid will know who brought it!

Sometimes theses cards would be a family card, where all the family member have their name on as well as their contact info... clever and cute, ah? I wish I had a super printer to get them done with lots of color and amazing graphics... (sigh).

A friend of mine asked me (long time ago, I have to admit) if I'd do a couple for her and so I told her I would make some samples for her... not that I forgot about her I was just busy ( I am telling you, Ashley!!) anyhow! tell me what yah think, would you!? Any suggestions?

Kristina Werner Color Inspiration # 32

Good morning everyone!

I am having a big trouble getting ideas. I thought I had a great inspiration from other card maker in this Color Inspiration but ohhh boy I was soooo wrong! Anyway... I have tried so hard and this is what I came up with. Check them out...

This first card was pretty easy to come up with the idea I actually had it in my mind for a while... it was funny to see people with the same ideas... not really hard to make very simple too... before I thought it was a great idea but now.. I am not so sure... what do you guys think? It definitely needs something, I just don't know what.

Now this is more traditional, more layouty like, you know what I mean? well I got no help from any card I have seen for this one. I just went for the safe traditional-nothing-new kind of card... ( sigh) not very inspired lately I guess... sniff, sniff...

Please leave a message and let me know what you think, and what should I do to get my inspiration back. Many hugs!!!

Note Cards 2

Hey you guys! Here are the second stack of note cards. BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG difference with the ones from the post before. once again I just took a piece of designer paper, matching colors and glue! along with other tools! what ya think?

You can see. I stopped being so lazy and used other tools, like punches, and thread. I love these two.. hehehe... not because I made them, I am humble but they just look good hehehehe.

I love these too!! What do you think? like them? any improvements? please leave a cutey message!
Many hugs!!!

Note cards!

I need to update, I know. I have been making cards like crazy. I have got an order of 70 Christmas cards for an office!!! I am soooo excited... I keep working like a mad woman... anyway... today while printing the message for those cards I remember I have not share my note cards.

For this cards I am not using rubber stamps because I wanted these cards to be for any occasion... I was having a hard time with the designs you will be able to see it. I started by taking the designer paper ( the pack from DCWV), cut pieces and got matching paper along and at the end had a wonderful mess on the table... it was not easy to clean I am telling you,it even hurt to through tiny little pieces o paper away, but... I know I wont be able to do anything with them...
Okay I will stop talking. These are the first group! Enjoy and please don't forget to leave a comment with your opinion or even suggestions

You can tell I was just going crazy and without directions with these designs... you will notice when you see the next group of note cards I will poste them in a few minutes.
Okay, okay, may hugs!!!

My First Layout! Yiipii!!!

I keep trying to update my blog with my latest work.

Something I have worked for tha past week was... MY FIRST LAYOUT!! I made it for my sister's friend too, Lauremy. I decided it was a great occassion and wehad a great idea too.
The idea of this "album" as I call it, is to place advices in each envelope, I created two pages for for the same purpose, I will explain more on each pic. Okay with further due.... Ta da!!!!!!

First Advice: This two pages are dedicated to raltionships advice. the one on the right was used to place the title and the one on the left was used to place the envelop where the advices will be placed. This is repeats through out the rest of the papges of the album.

Second Advice: Intimacy.

Third Advice: Home and house work etc.

Fourth Advice: Kitchen and recipes!

Fifth Advice: Beauty.

Back Cover!

The materials I used... I am afraid it will be a bit difficult to list them all but the main materials were: Pictures from my favorite magazine: Living, DCWV paper, My mind's eye. (you can tell I have no more paper than those two hehehehe), Alpha Punch out, Ink dots, Chipboard, UHU glue, 2way glue, Cheap fabric flowers, SU stamps, American Craft rubons, brads, buttons, post it, stickers among others I can't remember right now.
I have to say, and I am very proud of this, The cardboard base for this album was completely recycled, from other paper goodies I had laying around. The spiral was made at a local store ( God! if only I had one of those machines) The dimensions of this almuns is 5" x 6" and the envelops are 4"x 3". Ufff I am tired... so.. what do you guys think? do you give it your thumps up?!
Many hugs!

Invitation for an unusual occasion!

Good morning and Happy Sunday to everyone,

I have to apologize for not posting ins such a long time. This has been a very busy week for me. But I am back annnnd I want to show you a couple of things I have been working on.

I made this card invitations for my sister's friend. Lauremy ( my sister's friend) just got married and they want to celebrate giving her a welcome-to-the-married-life kind of party. I was very sad I had no stamps for this occasion so I had to appeal to the computer and the amazing things you can do with it.

I used Windows Office. Got the images from Microsoft Clip Art. Okay, so here it is! what do yah think of this one?

My sister doesn't live in the same city I do, so I tied a cute ribbon and sent it her way like this. So...don't be shy and let me know what you think and if there are any suggestions, I will gladly take it!
