4 Wheeler Brithday

I have a birthday coming up for a guy at work. He enjoys riding dirt bikes and 4 wheelers so it only seemed fitting to use one or the other. I used my Going Places Cartridge for the 4 wheeler. But this cartridge only has the base and shadow cuts. I cut the base out twice {in yellow and black} then cut the seat and tires from the black to add as layers to the yellow. The "Happy Trails" is also from Going Places, the mountain/hill in the background is from the Country Life Cartridge and the "Happy Birthday" inside is from A Child's Year.

Thanks for looking,

Total Scraplift

For my next card, I really wanted to us my Campin' Critters Cartridge which I purchased a while ago and haven't used. I decided to go on line and try to get some inspiration. I came across a card made by Joy at Everyday Cricut. You can view her card by clicking here. I omitted the twine since I don't have any {hehe} and I also hand wrote my sentiments since I didn't have same stamps. So I don't usually do a total scraplift and when I was searching for ideas I didn't have that in mind either. But I just really liked that card so I decided to make it. I wasn't sure how it would turn out with my choice of papers from my stash, but I think it turned out good.

Yes another card using Cricut Imagine

For this one I used on of the bonus imagines from the Best Friends Cartridge. I cut an additional red ballon from 27 to add to the end of the left string...which didn't happen to have anything attached to it. The "Happy Birthday"is from A Child's Year Cartridge.

Hope you have a wonderful day,

I'm having fun with my Imagine

So here is my second card using my Cricut Imagine. I'm having fun with it. I just wish I had access to the new Cricut Craft Room. After using Design Studio and the Gypsy for so many years, I really feel limited witht the imagine. I hope the CCR works better like all the hype they are attaching to it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Old Card, New Color

I made a sympathy card a while ago for a co-worker. I really like how it turned out so when I needed another sympathy card, I decided to go back to this design. The original was made using green tones. For this one as you can see I used blues. I like this one just as well.

Yes Another Peachy Keen

Yes, yet another card using Create A Critter and my new Peachy Keen Stamps. I'm not real happy with how this card turned out. It is kinda plain, I just need to get back into the crafting groove. But I do love how the eyes on the owl turned out.

Owl be seeing you {hehe},

Peachy Keen Stamps

I finally took the plunge and bought some Peachy Keen Stamps. I know this isn't much...only the eyes...but that really is all I needed the stamps for. I bought the "Critter Faces Set A Medium" and the "Everyday Character Face Parts and More". So you might be seeing more people and animals in my cards for a while...well as long as I am getting used to them. So I haven't decided on a sentiment for this card yet. More than likely it will be something punny. Next I will have to take the plunge and buy some of the My Pink Stamper Punny Stamps. Until they I just have to hand write them in.

See ya later!

My First Cricut Imagine Card

So, I've had my Cricut Imagine for over a month...First, my Imagine More cartridge was bad and I had to call Cricut to get a new one. Then I was having problems getting it to update correctly, I never seemed to have time to call Cricut to get help updating, because I work 8-5, don't get home until 5:30 so needless to say, when they close at 6, I just couldn't get it done. Then I went on vacation (and still hadn't called Cricut). My craftroom is on the second floor of my house and with this heat it has been like a sauna up again, I still hadn't fixed or used my New

Well today, the weather was a little less hot, so I turned on the window air conditioner and was able to keep the room cool enough to work in there. So before I called Cricut (which I'm not even sure they have Saturday hours) I decided to try the update again. Well low and behold it worked. So I made my first card. It is for a family friend that was just diagnosed with Cancer.

Happy Birthday Ella

So for this birthday card, I used the project from the Kate's ABCs Cartridge Booklet. The project was to decorate a metal box (hat box I believe)...I just incorporated it into a card instead. My son's half sister recently turned 5 and she really is cute as a button.

Great to have you stop by,

Happy Graduation Brandon

Super simple card for my son's friend down the street. This was scraplifted from another crafter, and forgive me but I can't remember who or where. The cap and sentiment were welded together on my gypsy. The cartridge is Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art. The background paper is Cosmo Cricket which I thought was great for the occasion.

Thank you for stopping by,

Happy Birthday Mom

So today is my mothers birthday! Happy Birthday to you Mom {Big Grin}. So for this card, I went on the simple side. I used some new designer papers I bought at JoAnn's along with a wonderful Core'dinations yellow paper. I inked the edges with Distressed Ink and used a brown pen to add dots to the sentiment and faux stiching. "Happy Birthday" is from Create A Critter and the flower is from Kate's ABC's. For a final touch I added some pink pearls at two corners {Which don't show up on the picture very well}
