Get Well Soon!

I can't believe that it's already the last day of February! This morning I was SUPER excited to find out the March is National Craft month! :)

I made this card a while ago for my cousin Lani. I know, it doesn't really scream "get well soon" but I decided to put a horse on it because the last time she visited we went horseback riding, and until she gets better we can't go horseback riding. So I was hoping it would serve as an inspiration for her to get better so that she can come visit and we can go on the longer horseback riding trail :)

 It's going to be a VERY busy month but I'm really excited about National Craft month. Feel free to leave a comment and share how you'll celebrate National Craft month :)

TV Buddy!

This post is LONG overdue! I made this card for one of my former co-workers. We didn't work together for a long time but thanks to a "Speed Meeting" activity, we found out that we both watch the same shows!! :) We a few of us would all recap episodes and try to figure out what was going to happen next. lol So when I heard that she was offered an amazing opportunity it was bittersweet, I'm happy and proud of her, but sad she isn't down the hall to talk to. Nicole, this one is for you! I miss you!
I used Create a Critter for the puppy and bone and the polka dot Cuttle Bug folder for the blue background. I was excited when she said that it was just like her dog! :)

Finally, a new blog post! My SD card reader was acting up and I wasn't able to upload any new pictures until today (thanks Matt!). Anyway, there have been a few birthdays since the last time I posted, here are the cards that I made for the celebrants.

This card is for Chari. I had a really hard time with this card because all I knew was that it had to be a cupcake and have yellow and orange on it. I used a cupcake from the Sweet Treats cartridge and of course I had to add some "bling" (stickles) on it! :)

This birthday card was for Alondra, Matt's niece, she turned 1 in January :) I used Create a Critter for the bear. If you don't have Create a Critter yet, you need to go get it. There are so many images for different occasions and it's super easy to layer! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!! :) This card took a while for me to make because I wanted the roses to pop out a little more so I brushed the edges with and ink pad and also tried to curl the edges of each of the roses.

So, I'm not sure if she even got this card yet, but I'm going to post it anyway! lol Happy Birthday Joanne! I tried to make a macaroon but it ended up looking like a burger! So, I ended up making another cupcake :) 
I'll try and do another post in the next couple days. I'm excited to go to my first workshop with a Stampin' Up demonstrator on Monday! :) We're going to be making some cards so hopefully I can get a couple posted on here.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sign up to launch the era of Alzheimer’s disease prevention research

Hey Bloggers, I just wanted to share this with you. Hopefully you'll sign up and join our efforts to end Alzheimer's Disease!

Alzheimer’s disease is an unacceptable problem. We need to find effective ways to reduce the risk of developing symptoms, or maybe even prevent it, as quickly as possible. 

The Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative (API), which is lead by Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, is intended to help do just that.  We believe that the greatest roadblocks to eradicating Alzheimer’s are the current scientific methods, funding mechanisms, and public policies needed to evaluate promising prevention therapies as quickly as possible.

I am asking for you to help support the API by:
  • Clicking here  to sign up for the API electronic mailing list (or visiting, and entering my last name in the “Referral Code” box*.
  • Forwarding this message along to everyone in your email address book, ask your friends and family to forward it along, post it on Facebook, and tweet about it!

By signing up for the mailing list you will:
  • Receive timely information about the project
  • Be among the first to hear about opportunities to participate in innovative clinical studies and research programs. 

Your information will not be shared with anyone and you can unsubscribe at anytime.

We need your help in reaching others who share our mission of ending Alzheimer’s disease without losing another generation!
Thank you for your help and support.

Regal :) 

*My co-workers and I are having a friendly contest to see who can get the most people on the mailing list, help me win! Please pass this on, it would be wonderful to get as many people as possible to join our efforts!

Good Luck!

I've been wanting to make a new post for a while, but my SD card reader isn't working. So until then, I can't post any pictures of new projects. So as I've been crafting and wedding planning, I've also been watching all the updates from Cricut and Provo Craft at CHA and I can't wait for all the new stuff to come out!! If anyone is looking to buy a Cricut Expression, there will probably be big sales soon since they're releasing a NEW one!! :)

Anyway, here is a little project that I made for a previous co-worker of mine. I'm excited that she's starting a new adventure, but also sad that she won't be at work with us anymore :( I loved talking to her about all our shows!!

I got the idea from a video that Custom Crops and My Pink Stamper did together. Here's the link to their video Click Here. Instead of hot cocoa, I put Starbucks Via in it instead. Nicole loves her coffee!  :) Good luck Nicole! I'll post the card whenever I upload my pictures.

 When you pull the ribbon, the coffee will slide out! :)

I'm also open to DIY wedding ideas, so if anyone has any, please leave a comment :)

Goodnight! :)
