Have a SUPER birthday!

My son has been invited to a classmate's birthday party this weekend. The theme is Superhero! They have asked that the kids wear their favorite hero for the party.

I knew for this card, I wanted the batman symbol to float somewhere. Then I got to thinking, wouldn't it be cool to pop out at you when you open the card.

After I picked a simple flip base, I got to work on a mechanism that would flip the symbol up as you open the card. While it isn't exactly what I had envisioned, I am totally happy with it! Then it all kinda fell into place from there.

Both birthday sentiments (on the front and inside) come from Virginia Turtle Stamps. The card base and all the superhero decor is from Silhouette Design Store.

Psalms 23

Today's card is on a more personal note. There comes a time in your adulthood that leaves you wondering why this person or that person. A childhood friend of mine has asked me to make a special card for her aunt. For privacy purposes, I will not go into detail, but I had the pleasure of making this card for her.

Psalms 23 is the verse on the banner in the background.

Cancer Sucks

Chances are at least one family has had to deal with some form of cancer. I know I have it all the way around in my extended families.

Being the founder and operator of Sugar Bean Cards, one thing I like to do is make personalized cards for recipients who ask for a little cheer for their loved one. Often these are surprise cards for their loved one from me to them and no money is necessary although it has been offered in the past.

My Heart

I was asked to make a tropical themed grooms card. Originally we agreed to do one of my Tahitian huts, but then the bride really liked this tropical island. I found the island from SVG Attic or Snapdragon Snippets if you are using Silhouette Design Store.

Since she originally liked the hut so much, I decided to incorporate the hut as well. I knew that she had gotten a little gift to put in it so I made the huts roof removable. I then incorporated little things that mean something to them.

Spooky Halloween......

This card was easy to make and I absolutely love the results! I started with the base of the card. I found this 'Spooky Gate Card' file on the silhouette design store under Snapdragon Snippets. You can also find it on SVG Attics website.
I then found these charmkin cuties on KBD's website. Frankie and the Bride of Frankie! 

I found the 'We Scare' sentiment found on the inside of the card in my collection of VT stamps! 


I am loving this weather! We went from high 90's to 100's to 70's overnight! No more air conditioning, not cold enough for the heater which only means one thing, Fall is coming!

With fall comes H A L L O W E E N! Both design teams I am on have a lot of halloween related things to offer. KaDoodle Bug Designs is constantly putting out cute new and older cutting files. Virginia Turtle has stamps, stamps, and more stamps for the upcoming holiday!

For this first card, I used KBD Frankie and Frankette Racoon. The sentiment stamp is part of VT's multi stamp pack.
