Etsy Shop

To my friends and family who has been nagging me for years to start selling what I make, here I am. I am starting to make more to add to my etsy shop. I can do custom orders.
I love making cards and gift for friends and last 2000 I decided to make my own wedding invitation, and favors. I have been making little things for friends and cousins.

My recent big custom order was for my college reunion. I made the invitations, program, reunion giveaways. I hope you like what you see and buy my cards. Thank you!

Items I made using cricut for my college reunion.

I used the lamp image from the Inspired Heart Lite Cricut Cartridge. This is the closet I found to the Florence Nightingale Lamp.

This is a place card that doubles as a Thank you card. Most of the sponsors for the reunion was able to sign them.
