Cute Personalized Cards

I haven't been crafting much lately. Although there is not really reason a thought that I should get back into it, so here is what I produced! I want to make packs of cards where people could easily personalize the inside themselves. I made one a birthday theme and one a thank you theme.

 This card is 5 1/2 x 4 and was made using my Cricut Expression with the Create A Critter cartridge.

 This card is 5x7 and was made with the cartridge Birthday Bash.

Enjoy :)

Birthday Card

This is a simple birthday card that I made for my mom's birthday today! I made it using my Cricut Florals Embellished cartridge. Although its a interesting cartridge I really have a hard time with it. It seems to me that everything on there is really detailed and it takes FOREVER to cut out and peel off of the page. I'm not sure how long I will be keeping it since I doubt I will use it much. Anyways...Here is the card I made :)

Heart Crayons

Hello everyone! My college classes just recently started again which means I get to go back to my placement at an elementary school on Monday. The class that I help out with is a first grade class and I basically just go once a week and help out with the students and do anything the teacher needs me too. Like most first grade classes my class is having a Valentines Day party so I wanted to make some really special for them. I was looking around on Pinterest one day and found a really cute idea for rainbow heart crayons...I thought to myself that would be perfect!" So I decided to make them.

Their are about 23 students in my class so I figured I would need a lot of crayons to make the hearts so I went on Ebay and ordered a giant Ziploc bag of used crayons instead of having only one of every color in a 64 pack. I peeled each crayon and put them in a container. I also bought a Wilton Silicone Mini Heart Pan on Amazon.

 After I finished that I started chopping up the crayons...that was starting to take forever so I just snapped them into pieces by hand. 

 When I they were small enough I added them to the pan. The directions on Pinterest did not say any specific way to put the chopped up crayons into the pan so I made sure their were some light colors along with dark colors in each just to make it more of a colorful heart. I set the oven to 235 degrees and put them in for 15 minutes to melt.

I suggest putting the silicone pan on a baking sheet just so its easier to take out of the oven and so the melted wax doesn't spill everywhere.

After I took the pan out their were a few tiny pieces of crayon that did not melt fully so I just pushed the piece into the center of the heart and you couldn't even notice! I decided to take the silicone pan off of the baking sheet and placed it on two gel ice packs to help them cool down faster. After about a half hour they were ready to pop out. This was my final result! I plan to add them onto a Valentines Day card.

I was on Pinterest the other day and found a really cute and simple way to make some Valentine's Day paper clips! These would be a great ideas as a bookmark! Its as simple as bending a large paper clip into the shape of a heart. Here is how to do it:

 First hold your paper clip exactly like I did in the picture below. Next you need to bend the at the point I have pictured below to make your heart even on both sides. Make sure when you are bending it that you keep both ends of the paperclip on the same side so that you don't have any ends poking over your page.

You should end up with something that looks like this after it is bent.

And this is the finished product..Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!!!

 I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I have been so busy with everything that I really did not have much time to make cards in the days leading up to Christmas. Now that things have slowed down a little (And I don't go back to college until the 16 of January!) I have found more time to make cards. Including my birthday, I have quite a few friends who have birthdays right after Christmas so I have been making cards for all of them! Here are a few:
