Well Im so happy you all like seeing my Smilebox creations! They are so fun! And they even inspire some card ideas too! Maybe even a scrapbook page-OK maybe not-I think I’ll stick with the cute, interactive, and fast version instead! LOL!

The reaction to the video of Alexa and Amber was so heartwarming! I will definitely have a video one of Alex’a birthday! I just bought her Princess dress today, after going to the dentist for my first cleaning after 10 years!

OMG! I should have done a Smilebox video for that! LOL! Too funny. I had a death grip on the chair!

For those who have NOT gone to the dentist in a while I can tell you it wasn that bad! They numbed my gums before the cleaning-that was NEW! So its wasnt totally awful! I have another step 2 cleaning in 2 weeks where they will fill one big cavity! YIKES!

They do some water thing instead of scrapping-they did scrap after alittle but it wasn that bad.

OK here is a Smilebox of Amber making cupcakes for her class! Speaking of cavities, and dentists!!!

She made these for her Pre-School class! They turned out super yummy!

She did it ALL by herself! Even the frosting! I just measured everything out-then put it on the counter.

 I admit it was hard to give up control! LOL! But she was so proud and did so good.

I chose black and white cause it matched the bkgd better! LOL! Plus my lighting was not too fabulous!

PAY NOT ATTENTION TO THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I will talk to Smilebox about having some things so showcase kids and cooking without a specific sentiment!

I really hope you try one! If you do send it to me-Id love to see it! Or if you have suggestions for some you dont see but would like to in the future!

Thats part of the fun of what I get to do! Test products, and give my input on future stuff. Its  really cool!

For Grandpa

Sep 13, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

This is my story, of the making of the dreaded Masculine card! (Think law and order begining with the music-LOL!)

for grandpa

I made this card for Jason’s Grandpa. He just has a birthday, and once again I am LATE getting a card out! I think its also the expectation that I will always pop out some fantabulous creation that makes me un-motivated to make a card sometimes. At least I know its appreciated 😀

I really struggle with masculine style cards-ALOT! Not cause I “can’t” I just dont like to make them as much! Im all girly flowery kinda stuff. Dont get me wrong-boy cards can be fun and cute-and I ahve done some guy stuff Im proud of its just not always my first choice!

I thought for a masculine card I would do the NORMAL, ole standby’s- leaves, or Lovely as a tree, and then I remember this set Lets Hear it for the Boys! How PERFECT!!!! This is a total grandpa scene! Seriously!

All he is missing is the grandpa belly 😀

If you look in the set you’ll see a sentiment that says “grandparents”, I simply just inked “grandpa” instead.

He loves to fish so I had to add the fishy plaque! I so should have made the fish a darker green and I am now killing myself over that detail-but oh well! There is a gellyroll glaze pen over it so it looks all taxidermed and stuff too.

The paper is an old mat stack by K & co. I love their line of products-LOVE IT!!

The rug is flocked (love flocking stuff too)

Of course its colored with myCopic markers.

So thats about it for details. Now all I need to do is actually MAIL it! Its been sitting here for 4 days now!

I’d love to hear what you love for masculine sets! Im always looking to expand my collection.
