Bind It All Guest Book

I was asked to make a guest book for a retirement party at work. I used some DCWV adhesive paper, the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder, Tie the Knot cartridge and a Stampin' Up border punch. Hope you like it.

Cricut Circle Challenge

The following card was made for the Weekly Challenge over at the Cricut Circle Blog. I made this using the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge (shamrocks) and the Simply Charmed cartridge (leprechaun). I used a Paper Studio punch for the larger squares and a Martha Stewart punch for the smaller, scalloped squares. Some gold stickles finish the look. Hope you like it!

New Camera

I finally broke down and purchased a DSLR camera. I've been wanting one for a long time now and just thought the price was cost prohibitive. I got a Nikon D3100. I don't know much about how to use it right now but I hope to learn. I might even take a photography class eventually. Now, on to the pictures. I made this card using the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge and the Diamond Plate Cuttlebug folder. It may be my favorite card ever! Add a little silver Stickles and a cool stamp saying from Stampin' Up and it's the perfect card!

Crafty Helper

I was making a bunch of cards this weekend and one of my cats decided to "help". She is making sure no one takes my MS Score-board. Very helpful.

Weekly Cricut Circle Challenge

This week's challenge was to go "Back to Basics" and use the cartridge that came with your Cricut machine. This card used George and Basic Shapes. I cut 2 different hearts, a circle and a tag with 3 layers. I also used 3 Cuttlebug embossing folders, some stickles, a Martha Stewart border punch and some ribbon for embellishment. Hope you like it!

Valentine's Cards

I finally got some time to craft today and decided to make a few Valentine's Day cards.

I made this card using some extra packaging to make a shaker.

This one was made using a punch around the page set from Martha Stewart and some adhesive sayings with glitter that I got at Ollie's.

I used the Love Struck Cricut cartridge to make this one. I also used some stickles for a little bling.

This one also used the Love Struck cartridge and some stickles.

I think this one is my favorite! Also using the Love Struck cartridge as well as a little Cuttlebug embossing. I also used my Irock to add a little bling.

This one is just a simple card using some crepe paper and a little bling and some ribbon.

I'm back!

So, it has been a busy holiday period so I haven't posted anything in a LONG time! I made about 200 cards for Christmas which I sold as a fundraiser for my next mission trip to Peru. I will try to post pictures of some of those soon and I will hopefully get back in the habit of posting regularly! Stay tuned!
