Spring is in the Air

Greetings from the land of sleepy scrappers!!  I have just returned from a scrapbooking retreat of 4 days of uninterrupted crafting, and am already looking forward to the next one!  I often feel as though I could use just one more day...and another...and another!  LOL.  With only 16 hours of sleep for the total weekend, I feel as though I can sleep for the next 2 days!!  LOL.  I decided to enter a few challenges simultaneously, all dealing with SPRING!

CTO Challenge #53

Join me in the CTO Challenge #53 to create a birthday shape card.  I have posted my submission below.   This will be an opportunity for you to build up your (bday) card stash, and to show off how creative you really are??  Submissions are due to CTO by Sunday, March 11th at 11:59pm, EST.

This image is from a free svg cut file that included the vest as a gatefold card w/envelope, and a flat image to be used on a card.  The entire card was made from my stash!!  This card was fairly easy to make. and may be my template for a few Father's Day cards!  The inside reads, "Fishing you a very Happy Birthday!"  TFL.

Explosion Box-Sympathy Card

I was asked to make a sympathy card for a co-worker, who had suffered a recent lost.  That would have been easily addressed with a basic symapthy card; however, her loss was compounded by the passing of 2 sisters within weeks of each other.  This called for something extra special!!!  I loved the e-box that Cassie did, so I decided to try it, with a twist!  I added a sympathy verse, and broke it into 3 parts within the inner sections.  I created some photo mats for the recipient can add pictures, poems, or whatever her heart desires, that relates to the sisters that passed.  She loved it!  Here's the end result...

Birthday Bling!

Greetings and Welcome to Taylor-made Creations!  This is my first post on T-MC, and my first post of the new Year!  Those who were following me on CropDropNRoll, please be sure to follow me here.  I will be deleting my previous blog within the next few weeks, as I develop this new blog.  Thanks to all for your patience.

I decided to do something a little different for a friend's birthday card this year, as she loves shoes, and purses.  I grabbed a free purse svg file, and used it for this card.  I added a short verse to the inside of the purse.  TFL
