Birthday Card

This card is for my co-workers birthday this week. She loves lady bugs.This guy was cut with create a critter and the background was cut on SCAL

Stampin up card kit

This is another card I made from the stampin up club card kit.

Life's a beach

These cards were also made for cards for soldiers. All the cuts are from Life's a beach, except the sun which was cut from create a critter.

Scrap cards for soldiers

I used more scraps to make these cards. I cut the top note and circles with SCAL. I cut the top note 1st and then glued on the squares and then I cut off the excess.

These 2 stamps are from SU

Create a Critter Cards - Cards for Soldiers

More cards for soldiers, these I did with Create a Critter.

The sheep was cut at 3 inches, and the Thank Ewe was cut with SCAL

Lady bug, I think these were also cut at 3 inches. The background and circles were both cut with SCAL, and the stamp is from SU

I cut these penguins for another project but they were to big so they were perfect for these cards. The Happy Birthday is with the bear on Create a critter

Isn't the owl just the cutest! I made the background paper by stamping the paper 1st.

The milk goes with the cow on Create a critter. The saying I cut in SCAL

Cards for soldiers

I recently was in a stampin up club and every month the host sent us a card kit. This is one of them that gave me inspiration for some easy cards. I did 30 of these they all are being donated to cards for soldiers. 

The example:
The 30 I came up with. All were made using scraps that I had. For these you need 2.75" squares and 8 1.25"squares.

Wedding Layout - For WWTC

Hi Ladies. Well it’s been awhile since I’ve worked on my own wedding album so I thought what a better way to get back in the swing of things then to make a Layout to share on wedding with the cricut. I’ve seen a few wedding layouts with the title “forever starts now” and I’ve been wanting to use this title in my album, I thought it was perfect for the pictures of us leaving the church. So here it is:

Close ups of the pages individually:

The background paper is from K&Company and is from the Black and Ivory Fusion Stack. The little strips on the bottom of page one, are from Me&my Big Ideas Mambi color basics in red and in black and white.


I used the opposites Attract cart for the title. “Forever” was cut at 2.5” with all the features off. Sorry I’m not sure where this paper is from it was a scrap I had, I think its DCWV but not sure which stack.

I cut the top note using Accent Essentials, its Shift - Accent 48 I cut this at 6.5 inches. The paper is Stampin’ up’s Very Vanilla. I didn’t like the starkness of the paper, so I took a sponge and using Stampin’ up ink in real red I made a swirl motion on the paper, then I dabbed around the edges to make them darker.

“Starts now” was also cut with Opposites Attract at 2” on the Opposite feature. Again I used Stampin’ up’s Very Vanilla paper and thought it needed more so I used some Martha Stewart stamps that said “love me, kiss me, and XOXOX” to give the paper a pattern. I just randomly stamped these on the paper. To do the shadow I used Stampin’ up’s Basic Black.

More goodies for my NSSS!

So I'm in love with these, aren't they just the cutest things ever! I found these super cute mini clothespins at wm in the office supply section. I wanted to alter them and thought what would be better then some of the cute little craters on create a critter. On the back of the clothes pins I put a magnet strip. I used mostly the SU in colors, the light green is from the brights collection.

I needed something fun to ship them in so I thought I would try making the wagon I saw  here I cut the box with tags, bags and boxes and then decorated it to look like a shipped box.

The top of the box with our addys on it:

The Fragile sticker I made:

The front of the wagon:

Items for my NSSS

I've been busy working on gifts for my NSSS and since she got her package I can finally share all the goodies I made for her.

Here is the card I made for her. The turtle and "friends" is from create a critter.

And this is the tote. I did this like you do the freezer t's but used vinyl instead of the freezer paper. I made the design for this in SCAL.

I'm going to post the rest in another post because I've got a lot of pictures.

The penguins were cut at 2.5 inches. The back ground papers I cut with scal using a nesties look alike font that a women on the cricut site made and shared.
