I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Hoppy Birthday

It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut and More. This time we are celebrating birthdays with some sparkle!

For my project, I decided to make a birthday card for one of my 5 nephews. If you follow my blog, you know that I have 3 nephews on one side and 2 more on the other side, so cards for boys are always needed!!

I absolutely loved this hopping frog from Designs on Cloud 9. It's from the Hoppy Days cutting file. My favorite was his upside down frog and lily pad. I love using goggly eyes for fun animals on my cards because my nephews love it. If you notice the blue layer in the middle is embossed with a wave folder. My favorite embellishments, Skittles, were added all around in the color bottle. Finally, I smeared green and orange glitter around the frog and the flower. 

Of course, my sentiment comes from Cardz TV, Critter Captions set.
