Quilled Birthday Card

Last time I checked in with you guys, it was Friday. And I had no dessert. But I also needed to make a card for my husband’s grandma’s 85th birthday.

So the husband went out and got us some Dairy Queen, and then I had the energy to make a card. There is a direct correlation between the intake of dessert and the output of crafts.

Anyhow. I started out like I always do– browsing Google images for inspiration.

Ok, guys, I’ma get real for a minute. (Please excuse the ridiculous slang.) I feel that it is of utmost importance to respect others’ creative ideas. While I peruse the internet for inspiration, I go out of my way not to copy others’ designs. Occasionally I have made crafts I’ve found on other websites, but I don’t generally blog about those things (and if I do, I link back to the original site.) So I want to ask you to do the same. I would be honored if any of you wanted to make some of my crafts for your own personal use, but please don’t claim others’ hard work as your own original idea, and under no circumstances sell those products without permission from the artist. Be cool, ok? I’ll do the same for you.

Ok, so now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me tell you about this card I made. (more…)

Just Married Card

Over the weekend, (my crazy, crazy weekend) my friend Emily got married.  It was a beautiful ceremony and I was a big fan of the food.  It was catered by Chipotle.

Anyway, a wedding called for some crafts. Three of them, in fact.

The first one I’ll share is the card.

I decided to make a card depicting the traditional “Just Married” car. I didn’t stay at the reception long enough to know if they had a car like this or not. 🙂

Like most everything I make, it started with a sketch. (more…)
