So with the snow outside I decided to finish up some holiday projects. This first is the cocoa packets for school. I made 30 of them so I did these assembly style.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder from Stampin Up and a stamp set from My Pink Stamper.
Bundle up and stay warm. This is the perfect time of year to curl up with a good book and a warm up of cocoa.

The following is some treats I made for Halloween that my daughter handed out at school.
The box is made with the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge that is now retired but is being offered as a free download to Gypsy owner's who have registered their Gypsy before the end of the month.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It is finally getting a little chilly outside and I love it. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I got my Gypsy a week or so ago and I just love it. I have all my carts linked up and I have several cuts planned and saved but not a whole lot of time to craft. Today however I got up early and got this scrapbook page done. I intend to get a pic of my daughter reading to put on here. She just loves a good book and with my new Create a Critter Cartridge and my Gypsy I made this cute page.
First I want to show you a close up of my Gypsy screen and how I laid out my mat. This is going to make using my scrap super easy!

This little birthday card is made using cardstock from American Crafts and I used my new favorite cartridge, Celebrate with Flourish. I also used my long time favorite Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder. The envelope is one from a pack I bought at office max and I embossed the envelope flap.

Anyhow my excitement has me rambling. I wanted to share with you a little notebook I made for my daughter. She wanted something to keep in her purse. When I went into the bank last Friday it was customer appreciation day and they gave me this little notebook with a plastic cover that had their logo on the front. Nice but not very girly. So of course I had to add some cute paper. I used the Storybook cartridge for both the top note shape and the monogram.

I hope you are getting ready for a fabulous holiday weekend. I know we are. I also hope to get in some crafting time since it is not as abundant since I have gone back to work (NOT that I am complaining). I love my new job but some extra time with my family will be appreciated.
For this card I decided to use up some of the MME paper stack I bought ages ago. I still love that paper line. I also wanted to play with some stamps from The Stamps of Life. The Trees2Build set was for the month of August but also used the wave stamp (turned upside down) from the Summer4Fun set as the grassy hills. It is a pretty basic card and that I just stamped 'Hello' on so I can use it for just about anything.

I had a really relaxing Sunday afternoon at the park. My little cousin turned 2. Thanks to some thunderstorms this morning it was pretty cool & breezy at the park making it a perfect afternoon outdoors. While I forgot to take a pick of his actual card I did have a pic of one I made a couple of weeks ago. I could make birthday cards all day long if my schedule permitted. I also happen to think cupcakes are just the cutest thing to add to them. Don't forget to add a little stamped image to your envelopes. I think it adds a nice touch.
Supplies: All CTMH except stamps from Oriental Trading, Stickles and Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I'd love to hear from any readers so be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think. ;)

Today I want to share with you a mini album. I just love how fast and easy mini albums are and they make great gifts. The one I am sharing today was made for one of my daughter's friends. I made this as her wedding shower gift using the colors she planned to feature in her wedding. The cricut made this project fast and easy. I wanted the base pages to be scalloped and the Mini Monogram cartridge had just the shape I needed. I used a lot of rubons on this book (even put a few on buttons). I hope this inspires you to create something today.

One more card featuring banners then I will move on. :) I don't do too many 5"X7" cards but I might do more since it was such an easy size to work with. The top note image is from the Cricut Story Book cartridge. Love that image!
Have a fabulous day.

It is so hot here lately that I am been inside enjoying the a/c and crafting. This card is another using the banner feature from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge. I love how the banners tied together turned out.

I am feeling pretty patriotic and whipped up this little invite for a 4th of July Party. I am just really into banners right now and was pleasantly surprised to "re-find" the banner function on my Celebrations Cricut Cartridge.
This card measures 4.25" x 4.25" and will fit in a standard A2 size envelope.

As you can see I lean towards simple clean lines. Even though I have been stamping and scrapping for a while I still feel like a newbie since I don't have as much time to devote to this hobby as I would like. Thanks for looking and comments are welcome!
