Mother's Day gift

I saw this in a house when I was dogsitting once.  It was a family with 4 children and there was a vertical frame with each child forming a letter to spell out L-O-V-E.
I thought that would be perfect for my sister who has 4 kids too, so I decided to make one for my sister, but I felt silly only ordering 4 pictures from Costco, so she and her mother-in-law each received this framed gift.
 And my other 5 sisters received a different version inspired by Patty's Flower Photo Project.  I used 4 envelopes and some 12 X 12 paper. It was an accordian frame.
I know, I know, I'm a PROUD AUNT and am not afraid to brag!!

Father's Day cards, a Triangle fold card

Here is this year's version of my Father's Day cards.  
You know my saying goes, "My cards have to entertain ME!"
It's a Triangle fold card.  I had LOTS to make, so this is a great card to make.  You can crank out 3 cards per 12 X 12 sheet of paper.
First cut the 12 X 12 paper at 4" and 8", then you score at 4" and 8"
Fold in the right side in.
Then, fold the right side, up at an angle.
Repeat it on the left side so it looks like this:
Then add a front embellishment, but only adhere it to one side of the front.
Then, stamp a special note inside for the great REVEAL!!

More baby cards!!

I used the Circle Thinlits to make this card and had fun playing with the Something for Baby stamp set and matching Thinlits.
I also used the new Alphabet Rotary stamp to make the "It's a Boy!!"  And cut it out with the Just Saying Framelits.   This is the card opened.
For this card, I spelled out, "Congrats!!!"
This is the card opened!
Here is the Alphabet Rotary Stamp, I LOVE that you can spell A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G up to 13 letters including spaces and punctuation.
