Nomination story

Today I am going to nominate my daughter for the Cricut Joy.  What a great idea.  My daughter loves to scrapbook; however, for years she has complained that a big machine will take up too much room. We get together on occasion and make pages with my Cricut Maker and Explore Air, but we don't always get a lot done, too much visiting. I know she is behind in her pages, for the four children. She would love to get …

Vinyl Momograms

I have done several of these and I am still dismayed by the way the Cricut glitter vinyl sticks. It always comes up in one or two places (as you can see in the photo). Bottom left and bottom of K. It looks fantastic, but doesn't stay for very long. I push it down repeatedly, but to no avail. I hope someone has some insider info that can help.


Thanks for stopping by.

Box Cards from Cricut

Image
Wow has it really been more then a year since I posted anything.  Yesterday I was looking around on the Cricut design space for some new cards to make. I found these 2 box cards for Access users. They turned out wonderful, although I think I will resize them to fit in an A2 envelope. They are a little crowded with print flowers, but look great.


Hope you enjoy.

Today I a making some fall cards. I try to leave them blank, I can always add a sentiment later.  I really like the way this one turned out. I used Heartfelt creations dies and stamps for the flower, a Silhouette cut for the background and a concord & 9th die for the thank you.  I cut everything out of white paper and then add color from inks. I like being able to get just the right color. The background peper is from a DCWV fall stack. Hope you like this, I know I do.

Eagle Scout

Today I am getting ready for this weekend.  My grandson is receiving his Eagle Scout certificate.  We are haveing a big party and I make a card I found in the silhouette store #73859.  It turned out great and I hope he likes it.  My daughter and I are also doing stars and flags to put in mason jars for the tables. 

Here is what the card looks like.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you come again soon.

Butterfly

Image
Today I am working on my stamping.  I have had this swirl stamp for years, and have just now become reacquainted with it. I love the way this turned out, nothing special. It didn’t take a lot of time to make, I like that.I used sizzix dies for the butterfly, label and banner, then added a few Nuvo drops for accent.

Hope you like this and stop by again sometime.
