Is it hot enough for you?

Boy oh boy, it is so hot here in the mid west right now. Heat index was 110 today and with the humidity it is pretty miserable to spend any amount of time outside. That being said my teenager took over my craft supplies and made a couple of things. I think they turned out really cute.

First is a card she made. It is a standard size card and she went to town on the stickles. She loves glitter! :)

Supplies: Paper-DCWV Sweet Treats, Cardstock-American Crafts, Stickles-Ranger, Cricut, Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge, Doodlecharms cartridge.

Her next project is a mini composition book she covered to write assignments in at school.

Eat Cake & Celebrate!

Hi everyone,

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. ;)

Let's talk Mini Albums...

Hello Friends,
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.

Recipe: Cricut, Mini Monograms & Home Accents Solutions Cartridges; Making Memories: Leather Frame; CTMH: ink, rhinestones, clear shapes, rubons, card stock; MME: pattern paper; We R Memory Keepers: Cropodile & eyelets; Misc fibers and ribbon.

Sunny Day

Wow, I can't believe it's July 1st already. Summer is flying by! Today I am sharing with you a 12"x12" layout featuring a new Cricut Lite cartridge called Celebrate with Flourish. The Cricut Lite Cartridges are exclusively sold at Wal-Mart. This one was my first purchase. I just loved the layering and all the different holidays & seasons. I will be adding a photo to the lower right side later. I think this may be the first time I have done a layout ahead of time.
