Easter Card 2011 (Designer's Calendar)

Happy Resurrection Day!!!! Jesus is alive! He has been ever since that first Easter morning when He defeated sin's power as He rose from the dead. Now all that call on His name can be free from sin's hold their. What a glorious promise!

I hope you're having a blessed day as you celebrate this truth!

I goofed on the sash. It looks like it's floating in mid air! Lol! I still sent them to our family because I loved the glitteriness of them.

The stamp is a Stuidio G stamp from Joanne's. I was so thrilled to find it!!!!

I'm ready for my crop tonight! I hope I have what I'll need. I love going to crops but I am always concerned I'll forget something vital...like adhesive or a scissor. Lol! If you don't see something I need in the photo please leave me a comment!

I am going to make a Mini-album tonight, but I may make some cards too. Here are the photos and supplies for the mini.


We have to bring a snack to share. Let's just say I'm not bringing a healthy snack. Lol!

April Fool's Day blog hop- Never Ending Card Part 1



Welcome to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's April Fool's Day Blog Hop! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! If you came here from Ashley at Marine Wife's Scrappin Life, you are in the right place. However, if you happened upon my blog, please head over to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's blog so you don't miss any of the fun.

For this hop, we were asked to create a project that “tricks the eye.”I decided that I would try a Never ending card. I had never done one but I had seen several videos on You tube. So I looked up my favorite and got to creating!

I decided on a Father's day card because I knew my husband would be so intrigued by this card.

Please scroll down to the bottom to see the video tutorial.

Sweethearts Cricut cartridge, DCWV pattern cardstock, Versamark embossing ink, White embossing power, ATG adhesive, black gems, CTMH Just Like You stamp set.

Next in line is Tonia from Pigtails and Paper Trails. What I like about her blog/style is that she uses her Cricut and embossing folders a lot. Her projects are sweet and so fun loving! You'll enjoy her blog!
