Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I just wanted to share the cards and projects I've been working on. I can safely share them now that Mother's Day is over! :)
First up: the cards and candy boxes for my husband's Grandmas.

I made the cards and boxes with my Silhouette, and added hot rocks to each with my i-rock.
We filled the boxes with some yummy chocolate caramels.

Next, the cards for our moms.
This one was for my Mother in law. I used my Silhouette and glimmer mist. It was lots of fun!

This one was for my mom.
I used my Silhouette and glimmer mist on this one as well, and I just love those paper roses. I want to cover everything with them! The card base is white-core cardstock that I embossed and then sanded to expose the embossing.

And here are the gifts for our moms!
This one was for my mom. They are photo holders for pictures of their grandkids. I printed off little pictures of each of the kids as well. I followed the directions found here and here. The paper is mod-podged on the blocks, and then I hot-glued the ribbon on. The lettering is vinyl cut with my Silhouette, and I attached the gems with my i-rock.

And this one is my Mother in Law's.


  1. Love the wood blocks! Such a great idea! and I really love the embossed/sanded swirly paper on your card for your mom! I need (want!) an embossing machine!

  2. Thanks Brittany! I love my embossing machine, but I need more ideas of ways to use it. I hear there's a "how-to" on that very subject coming up though so I'm excited for that!


Thanks for leaving a comment, I love reading them! :)
