Sew Many Cards design (birthday card & cake)

I made this for my daughter's 8th birthday using a SewManyCards digital stamp design. We made tie blankets & tie pillows at her party and Angela at SewManyCards custom made this "PERFECT" design for us. I enjoy making her invites and this time I tried something new (I got the idea from another lady on SewManyCards, ) I used the digital stamp design to make the card and the cake design. Just to let you know, from trying this myself, stay away from the gel icing, and I reccomend getting your icing ready before you start and invest in the stand by Wilton to hold your icing upright. I would think I was finished with the color and start with a new color and then have to try to mix and match the color again because I realized I had missed spots. UGH :( I will definately try this again but will do things a lot different. I was not as happy with this as I would have liked to be, but I plan to practice.
The brads on this card are made with an Itop from the felt that we used to make the tie blankets. I used a MS punch around the page for the scallop look.

"The Best" Gypsy case

These are made by CASE LOGICS (lrg case is the flat screen GPS travel kit & the small case is medium camera case)
I thought I would share my find with you all.
I am very pleased with this case and it protects my Gypsy very well. I bought the two cases separately because I wanted the option to not take my chargers and stand everywhere I go but I wanted to keep all my "G" parts together. In the larger case it stores the G and then on the other side at the top there is a pouch that stores the USB cord & cartidge connector. Below that there is a small pouch that the stylus fit into perfectly (holds several), then you have the velcro tab that opens this up to another compartment that holds the G Wanderings and Font cards, also holds my extra screen protectors and a wipe for my screen. In the smaller case it holds a car charger, wall charger and the stand for the G. These are made by Case Logic.

Just in time for Christmas!!!!

I purchased these (Clear Covers for the Cricut Expressions) for Christmas gifts for a very good friend and a teacher that taught my daughter last year, and for me :)!!
They are AWESOME!! If you are at a loss for the perfect gift for someone who Scraps, this is it!!! Custom made for whoever you wish or just leave them clear and decorate them yourself. I am so happy that I found these and I know you will be just as amazed as I am with the quality and the price. Check it out at......

CottageCutz ALL NEW Exclusive Christmas Die's (19 to choose from and get a free mini with any order)

These dies are "THE BEST" you will not find a better detailed die. If you have never tried these, now would be the time. These are the perfect addition to any scrapbook layout or card. I can't wait to get these new dies. They are the wafer thin dies like Quickutz, only these are easier to work with because the pieces are workable and the details are amazing. You can cut these in any machine that you cut your Quickutz in. I use the Revolution and Sizzix Express to cut mine. I added you a few pictures to show you what your missing out on. I have always been pleased with CottageCutz dies and I know you will be too.
