Note Card Set

Hello - 

Today I am sharing a note card set I made using a book I just received for inspiration.  I recently purchased Card Making with Cricut.  This book has been out for a while but it has a bunch of cute ideas in it.  I highly suggest it for a cricut user.

Happy Birthday

Hello - 

Today my "baby girl" is 19!  Wow!  She is a full time college student and works so hard.  I could not be more blessed to have such a wonderful daughter.

I thought I would share a birthday layout I made using the DCWV Celebration stack.  I used the Everyday Pop Up cartridge for the banner and Elegant Cakes for the Happy Birthday.

Cupcake Birthday Cards

Hello Everyone - 

Today I am sharing a quick and easy cupcake card I made from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I am using one for a birthday card this week and since I could fit two card bases on one 8 1/2"x11" sheet of cardstock I made another to have on hand.
This was such a quick and easy card.  I used the card feature and cut the corresponding layers.  

Supplies: Cardstock (DCWV & The Paper Studio), Cricut & Sweet Treats cartridge (Provo Craft).

Final Pages for the Wedding Album

Hello -

Whew...I am done and I finished the album before the shower!  I was a little worried I'd run out of time.  Here are the last 3 two page layouts.  I really liked using the DCWV formal affair for the album but I started to run out of paper's so I decided to make some backgrounds the the Cricut.  I used both the positive and the negative of these background cuts.

Almost Done with the Wedding Album

Hello -

Here are 2 more two page layouts I made for my cousin's wedding album.  I am almost finished.  I really hope she and her husband enjoy this album.



I even broke out my Sew Easy for the heart boarder at the bottom of these photo mats.  I really love how easy that tool makes sewing on my projects.

What Have I Been Up To???

Where has all this time gone??? I can not believe how long it has been since my last post. I have been up to a lot. First let me go back to the preparations for my daughter's graduation from high school and her party. I was lucky enough to find a great sale on couple of Sizzix brass embossing folders. I picked up these folders for fifty cents each at Custom Crops a few months back.
I will be back soon with some pictures from another project I have been working on.

April is Here!!!

Where has the time gone.  I am still spending far too many hours at work.  That means not only has my craft time suffered, I have not even had time to enjoy this awesome weather.  Recently my daughter was asked to be a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding.  My daughter asked me if I could make a scrapbook for my cousin as her bridal shower gift.  I thought that was a great idea since she doesn't scrapbook herself.  I went to JoAnn's and picked up a wedding album, the DCWV Formal Affair 12x12 stack and a few embellishments.  I also grabbed some of their new cardstock by coredinations.  I grabbed a pack that had a hot pink that is close to the color of the bridesmaids dresses.

Now for the hard part....making this album.  I always find it harder working on pages for someone else.  Will they like the products I picked?  Will they like my design?  Will they ever put pictures in this and use it?  Needless to say all those questions in my head creates some serious crafter's block.  Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Since I couldn't get my mojo going I started in the last page because the pattern paper really is the focus.

Supplies: Cardstock (DCWV & Coredinations), Liquid Pearls (Ranger), Epoxy sticker (Cloud 9 Designs), Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), Cricut & Wrap It Up cartridge (Provo Craft).

I will post the other pages as I complete them.  Thanks for stopping by.

Spring Wreath

Hi -

Seems like forever since I updated my blog.  Hope I remember how!  LOL.  I have been just super busy with work and my weekends have been packed with family stuff.  About a week ago I cut several paper flowers from the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  I just had then out and was rolling and gluing them as I watched TV.  When I got them all done I glued them along with some green silk leaves I had in my stash to a chipboard circle and tided a ribbon to the top to hang it.  These little flowers are quite addicting.
Supplies: Chipboard, Silk Leaves (Oriental Trading), Cardstock (The Paper Co.), Stickles (Ranger), Ribbon (Offray), Cricut & Art Philosophy cartridge (Provo Craft).

Be Mine - Banner

Hello - 
I hope everyone is doing great.  I am feeling a bit under the weather today.  I made a banner last weekend before I caught this cold.  Since I can't do much else today I thought I would share a picture of it with all of you. 

It was my first banner attempt and a little difficult to photograph.  I like it but don't really have a great place to put it so I am going to send it to school with my daughter for one of her teachers to hang in their classroom. 

Supplies:  Cardstock (The Paper Co. & American Crafts), Stickles (Ranger), Crop-o-dile & Eyelets (We R Memory Keepers), Ribbon (CTMH), Cricut, Gypsy, Celebrate with Flourish, Chic & Scary, MS Seasonal Cake Cart & Storybook cartridges(Provo Craft).

Cricut Cake Cartridge Sale Alert...

Hi Everyone-

I recently purchased these three cartridges for $15 each at Big Lots and was so pleased I did.  When I saw these on sale at Cricut.com I knew I had to give you a heads up.  I don't own a Cake machine but they also work in my Expression.  I LOVE them.  They are so versatile.  You can't beat less than $15 for what you get on these.  I call these hidden treasures because they also all have GREAT fonts on them.  Check them out HERE.
