Just A Note Quick and Easy Card Using my E2

I recently did a swap with the design team that I am on and wanted to make a cute card to send along with it. I didn't have a lot of time (my husband is working overtime almost every day) so I chose one of the cards that is on the Just a Note Cartridge on my new Expression2 and made it in a snap! The Just a Note Cartridge is my favorite new cartridge, it was designed by Cosmo Cricket who makes most of my favorite paper lines... Anyways this is what I came up with...


Just a Note Cartridge
Pink and Purple Core'dinations Cardstock
Misc Green Cardstock
White Gel Pen
Misc Green Button
Purple Twine from the Twinery

I love how you can make these cute little cards on this cartridge!

Mothers Day Card #3: My Pink Stamper Challenge + Echo Park Paper Challenge

This is the first card that I made for Mothers Day using my new Expression 2! The cards got better as I made them but I still like it a lot. I just got Echo Parks new 6x6 paper stacks on Friday and then they announced a challenge for National Scrapbooking Day to use their paper in the projects that you make and you could win some of their paper lines. Also My Pink Stamper listed 12 challenges throughout the day on Saturday and for this one I used her challenge of using pink, green and black to make a card. I am not big on black for Mothers Day so I just used a black gel pen and hopefully that is good enough!

Mothers Day Card #2 - My Pink Stamper Challenge using Echo Park paper

Here is another card that I made yesterday for Mothers Day. My Pink Stamper had a challenge to make something mom related and Echo Park paper has a challenge to use their paper for National Scrapbooking day so I did both challenges while making my mothers day cards!
Here is card number two that I made. I used my new 6x6 paper pack from Echo Park called Summer Days. I absolutely love the paper its so summery and since it is still raining here, it makes me excited for nicer weather to come our way!

Happy Mothers Day! My Pink Stamper Cupcake Challenge using Echo Park Paper

First of all Happy Mothers Day! To all you moms and future moms I hope your day is great and spent with the ones that you love! Being a mother is the best thing that has ever happened to me! (that and meeting my husband) :)

Yesterday My Pink Stamper had a day full of challenges for National Scrapbooking Day. One of the challenges was to make something "cupcake" related. Echo Park is also having a challenge to use their paper while you craft this weekend. I needed to make Mothers Day cards so I did both challenges in one. On top of that I just got my new Cricut E2 so I used that to make this card!

Hope you like it!
