Birthday Mini album made with Birthday Bash

This is a birthday mini made mainly with Birthday Bash, a bunch of scraps, and some extra birthday embellishments that I had stored up.   The shape of the book is the banner shape on Birthday Bash as well- I hid the holes that were already in the banner with my Gypsy and used my crop-a-dile to punch thru the covered cardstock and apply the eyelets.

The scalloped oval is from Gypsy Wanderings and the shake box slice of cake is an old embellishment I had in my stash.  I used a combination of tulle and grograin ribbon on the rings.  The extra large eyelets are from We R Memory Keepers- this is my last batch and I cannot find them ANYWHERE.

The bird is from Birthday Bash, the ribbon is from American Crafts, and the words are jelly stickers by White Blossom.

Ribbon is from the dollar bins at Target

The journaling card is from K and Company.

Reindeer designed with Gypsy...

Trying to keep with the season I thought I would try to make my own little reindeer.  I used shapes from Accent Essentials, Create a Critter, DonJuan, Doodlecharms, Gypsy Wanderings, and Winter Frolic.  My 10 year old has already claimed this one.  :) I am really having fun designing my own little critters.

Lion designed with Gypsy... inspiration was the new Life's a Party cartridge.

I fell in love with the little lion on the Life's a Party cartridge but that was really the only image I liked on it, so I thought that I would try to design my own.  I got stuck on the body so I made my own instead of trying to copy the one on the new cartridge.  I used Gypsy Wanderings and Create a Critter. I use Gypsy Wanderings for the basic shapes more than any other cartridge... it has ovals, circles, rectangles, and squares- all that I really need.  It seems to me that I will have designed my own little zoo by the time I am done... so far an elephant, giraffe, and now lion. It is so exciting to see if they look anything like I envisioned while I was designing on my Gypsy when I cut them out. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look.

Baby Giraffe Card... Designed with my Gypsy and Gypsy Wanderings cartridge!

I have a baby shower to go to this afternoon and I needed a card.  So  I had a little time and decided to make an original.  I came up with this baby giraffe made by using my Gypsy and only shapes from Gypsy Wanderings!  I am thinking that he is VERY CUTE.  :)  I made him by layering the back, top, head, and nose- kinda like the Create-a-Critter cartridge or Simply Charmed.
