Here is the card I made for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge. I had this wonderful background paper that I have wanted to use on something. I inked all the edges and finished it off with a Hero Arts stamp.
Carts used are Jasmine, for the corners, and Cindy Loo, for the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by…..have a great weekend.

I am trying to fill my Operation Write home box with 50 cards. This will be my second batch to send, the first was 220.  Some of the ladies at Church had cards to add to the box, all of them were so wonderful.  Here are 2 more to add, this makes 25.

These cards are made with the Florals Embellished cart.  First is the one on page 31 and the second is from page 65.  I made the SU papers as close to the colors in the book as I had in my stash. I also embossed the back paper of the first one and added some Spare Parts ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by…..have a super day.

I received a few graduation announcements last week.  I made 2 congrats cards this weekend.  Blogger deleted my post on Friday, I’ll try and get that one back up this week.

I used locker talk cart for the hat and Martha Stewart Elegant cake art for congrats.

The black one was for a young man so I added a few i-rocks and a pre-made card background.

The green was for a girl whose school colors are green and white. I used  SU paper and some hemp cord with a EK success punch.

I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and they had all there adhesives on sale for 40% off, needless to say I stocked up on zots and tape runner refills. I also picked up a few items that I am going to give away when I reach 10 followers. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy these cards.

I was looking at my Cricut Magazine yesterday and decided to make the paper roses that I saw on page 34.  They turned out wonderful. I put them on a small box that I made for my daughter’s birthday present.
I cut them out of white paper and then inked them with SU crushed curry.  I used an SU stamp, dot, dot, dot with soft suede, to accent the flower more. The leaves were linked with the soft suede as well. I then added a little zip dry and glitter to the edges.
The paper used for the 3.5 square box was from K&G, one 12X12 sheet.  I used the reverse side for the top.
The flower was super easy to make and turned our great looking.  Both flowers and leaves were cut from the Mothers Day cart. I used my hot glue gun to put the layers together, rather than zip dry, so I would have more time to line them up and stagger the peddles.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy this project.

May 2, 2011

I have really been busy with life here lately and have not had a chance to post anything this last week.  My Mom has been down in her back, she can’t get up very easy. I did get a chance to put my Easter photos of my son’s family outing in the scrap book.  The second page will be for my daughter, she sent me the photos I just have to get them printed.  I also made a card for my daughter-in-law.  Her birthday is the 7th. 
For the scrap gook page I used Celebrate with Flourish and Ashlyn’s Alphabet and my Gypsy to weld the Happy Easter together.
For the card I used Cindy Loo for the flourish and a punch for the flower.  I punched out the white flower in 2 sizes then sprayed with spritz and formed them with an embossing tool.  I punched a hole in the center and added a very small brad.  The stamp is from a Fiskars set I picked up a HL.
Hope you enjoyed my projects.  If you would ever like to have any of my files, just leave me a comment.  I will be happy to share.
