Things with Wings

Hello, Hello:
It has been a long time since my last post. I have been very busy with the garden and grandchildren this spring and summer. Once the weather turned into the 100's the garden stopped making anything.  I have a lot of caned veggies for this winter. I hope to continue to work on getting my card stack built up.  I need to start on Christmas cards, hope to have one for you to look at tomorrow.

So, I have turned back to crafting. I love making cards and seeing the persons face when the open it.  I found a few items in the design store and really liked the way they fit together.  I went with a single layer card and then added the retro circle frame (item 4279) and Mason jar (item 124055).  I had some butterfly stickers that added just the right touch.


Thanks for stopping by hope you come again soon.

Garden Picks

For the last several days I have been attempting to get my scrapbook up to date.  These photos were taken in 2013 of the garden.  Last year was a disaster, with all the rain washing away the nutrients from the soil.  I used Country Life and my Cricut expression to make these pages pop.
We always have a small garden but this is the first year we attempted a big one. Worked great, I caned lots of beans and froze some squash, but gave a lot of it away.

Hope you enjoyed your visit and come again soon to see what I am working on.

Hearts in a Cup

Today I am working on Valentines for my 6 grandchildren, and a few friends. I thought this was a cute idea to show how my cup overflows with love. I used my Explore and a cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet and added some digital paper so I could print and cut. The hearts are free, the background it from Elegant Edges. I popped up the cup and then filled in the hearts. I thought it needed something extra so I added some bling and a bow. I really like the way it turned out, hope you do to and come again soon to see what I am working on.

Teacher Gift cards



This week I have been working on making some gift card holders for the grandkids teachers.  The holder is from the Silhouette store and the little owl is a Miss Kate Cuttables file. I put it all together and made it into a print and cut file. I filled it with “subway” gift cards.  Subway is always a hit, it is just down the street from the school.

Hope you like it and will come again soon.

Butterfly Cards

Today I am making some beautiful butterfly cards. My stash has been rapidly depleted, I gave away some boxes of cards for Christmas. This is a simple card. The first has just one embossed layer and the other I put a colored layer under the embossed top. The flourish is from silhouette design store # 59369 and the butterfly is from Cricuts' Garden Cards. It is nice to have both machines running at one time, it makes everything go a lot faster.
 

 
I hope you like these and will visit again soon.

Happy New Year

I have a very cute card today, I made it for my sister. She doesn't do Christmas, so I wanted to make her something to ring in the new year. She moved this past summer, I don't get to see her as much as I used to. I used a design from Silhouette design store #53369 and a Miss Kate Cuttables file "banners set of 4". I wanted to write on the banner and so I used my Silhouette gold pen.  The card base is design #57422. You can't see it in this photo very well but I used glitter paper for the bubbly and a metallic paper for the background.

I think this turned out super cute. Hope you like it and come again soon.

Oct. 1, 2015

I have been working on this Cricut Explore Air project for weeks, off and on. I started it and then had to stop because it is just so time consuming. All the flowers and greenery took so long to cut and assemble. OH My....if you want a project this is it though. It turned out wonderful.  I made a few adjustments,  I added a brown center to the Big yellow daisy looking flower, and placed the little purple flowers on the stems. I think it looks great. I am putting this on the front table at Church. I had the strawberry basket I have 2 years ago, but it is looking a little run down. Hope you like this project. Come again soon.
