Out with the Old & In with the New Day 2


Welcome to 2012 and Day 2 of this hop! If you missed Day 1, please scroll on down and see some projects of yester-year.

Today's post is a New Year's Themed project....

I made this Hat-shaped card from Paper Doll Dress-Up. I cut it at 5 1/2". I used 2 hats, flipped and welded together with my Cricut Design Studio Software. I also used my DS to weld the letters and numbers for the sentiment...they are from Don Juan cut at 2".

I used Walmart tinsel ribbon left over from Christmas. The glossy paper is from a MS Christmas pack. The rhinestones are just standard stock from somewhere I can't remember ;0)

The super, pretty stick pin is from some blog candy that I won from my wonderful blogging friend Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque . She makes and sells 'em...check her out.

My lil princess had to post her card too ;0D She made this with the same paper that I used to cut out my sentiment. She was experimenting with brads.

She set up her own photo shoot...picked the background and took the pic herself.

I'm so glad you came by and hope you keep on hopping around with the rest of the Made Especially 4 You Design Team. You're next stop is my crafting friend Amber .

Here's the whole line-up....
