2012 Fall/Autumn Bulletin Boards

Okay, I get the privilege to decorate the church bulletin boards in the main foyer of my church.  I love trying to keep it fresh looking and colorful.  I really enjoy doing them.  So enjoy looking and maybe they will inspire you.

Bulletin board #1:
I used:
Inspired Hearts Cricut Cartridge for the praying people
DCWV The Glitzy Glitter Stack (LOVE it!)
The Sentiment is computer generated "Fall Before God"
Fall Ribbon for the boarder
The leaves I purchased at Michael's and Pat Catan's Craft Store

Bulletin Board #2:
I used:
Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge for the basket
Preserves Cricut Cartridge for the apples in the basket
The sentiment is computer generated, "Fall In Love With Jesus"
Red, green, brown and black cardstock
DCWV Glitter Stack for some of the red apples
Brown Rolled craft paper from Office Max
Fall Ribbon for the boarder
Leaves are from Michael's and Pat Catan's Craft Store

Overall, I am fairly pleased at how well these turned out! 
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a blessed day!

Numbered Birthday

I hope you all have been doing good and have enjoyed your summer.  We have been extremely busy lately with enjoying the last few days of our "summer" before we get back into the swing of school.  The kids always get so excited as the books and curriculum start to arrive.  They can hardly wait for me to open the boxes.  It is almost like opening Christmas presents for them...I think there is something wrong with them.  My oldest has been begging me to start school two weeks ago!  Oh well, I am so glad that they are at least excited, for now. 

Anyways, this fun yet cute card inspiration, came from the wonderful site of "Pinterest"! I changed it up a bit. I made this for my niece who just turned 15! I think it turned out pretty good.  I struggle with making a card that doesn't have a lot of glitzy stuff all over it!  Really hard not to add some kind of sparkle or ribbon. So this one I just rubbed a little stickles around to give it a little shimmer to it.  This is an easy and fun card to make when you have a gypsy to help you design it.  Well, I hope she liked it!

I used:
Plantain Schoolbook Cricut cartridge for all the numbers
Black Cardstock
Making Memories Wedding paper for the background
DCWV Glitter Stack for the pink paper behind the number 15
Pink and Green stickles
White ink
Happy Birthday Sentiment stamp is from Hobby Lobby
Thank you so much for stopping in
and I hope you have a wonderful day!
