Girlie Girls

I know I completely missed the month of February, but I wanted to share a very simple card made for a class. Back in December...before I knew how hectic my home life would soon become, my friend Alisa asked me to teach the Activity Day girls how to make a card. This is a group of girls ages 8-12 from church that meet twice a month and work on goals.

They needed to send a card to someone they appreciated and being so close to Valentine's Day (at the time), this simple card came to mind. I had the pieces all cut out for them so all they had to do was put it together. They all thought the most awesome part was using the Cuttlebug to emboss the Blush matte. And I agree, using that little machine is awesome.

The girls loved making the heart pocket and tag. I don't think I've heard the phrase, "Oh, that's so cute!" quite so many times without being at a baby shower.

When the girls got done making them, they sat down and began writing their notes inside. As I was cleaning up, I was thinking about all the times I've taught Joy School at my house. I told Alisa I didn't know which was worse harder, teaching eight 3 year olds or nine 8-12 year old girls.

I came home and hugged my three boys really, really tightly.

Now I don't want you to think I don't like little girls...I used to be one you know. But I think I have forgotten how...girlie they can be!

PS: For those of you wondering, the remodel job is still underway. We've had more rain the past week which really set things back.


  1. Angela! Your paper crafts are wonderful! I'm loving it! I found your blog through facebook after my mom told me how beautiful your work is. I am a paper addict myself. I love to paper craft. Mostly cards, but I really need to get back to my srapbooks. I did Stampin Up for a while, but love CTMH too! And what gorgeous BOYS you have! :) I have a few of my things on my blog. I'm going to keep looking for more of your goodies! :)
