Happy 1st Birthday Step Up Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I had so much fun making this birthday card for our great nieces 1st Birthday.

happy birthday

This Cricut Explore Air machine is the BEST and using the Design Space to create these fun looking cards is so much easier then I expected (since I am really not a computer person) 🙂

I also used the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to get the flower image onto the white cardstock.

There are so many great things about the Cricut Explore and Design space but what I have noticed is that I am not wasting paper anymore. I know exactly where everything is going to cut on the cutting mat because your computer screen shows what piece of the image is going to cut next.  I think that’s SUPER COOL 🙂

Pink Flamingo’s I Must Be In Florida

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Close To My Heart has the cutest Flamingo stamp set and coordinating thin cut set  called Tickled Pink.

So many people think of Florida when they see Flamingo’s so I think this stamp set was made just for me, since I am a Floridian 🙂

All different kind of greeting cards can be made with this Tickled Pink set, but also think of accents for scrapbook pages, party invitations and decorations…

And remember just because its called Tickled Pink does not mean you have to make them pink.  You can use any color ink that you want.  That’s the best thing about creating your own paper crafts 🙂

Creating Graduation Card Using Cricut Explore Air

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you are enjoying your day.  Today I want to share with you a card that I made for our nephew who graduated high school.

Using my new Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine was AWESOME 🙂

Finally took the leap from the Cricut Expression to the Explore Air and I am so happy.  I am still learning how to use the design space, but with the videos that Cricut has available, I am doing better then expected LOL

The  Cricut Cartridge, Wild Card  is what I used when making this graduation cap and it was super easy and fun.  But I guess when you are crafting and doing something that you love it is always fun 🙂

~ Congratulations Luke ~

Spring Has Sprung

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Springtime Makes Me Smile when I see all of the trees start budding and flowers start blooming.  Spring has sprung in North Florida and in my Craft Room 🙂

No matter how many new and exciting products are on the market, there are times when I just want to “go back to basics”  using a white card base from Close To My Heart, a paper punch, paper crimper and a few thin cuts.  I can’t believe that I did not use a rubber stamp on this card 🙂

I was not spring cleaning, but I was looking at supplies that I have not used in awhile.  It’s amazing what you can find hidden in those decorative photo boxes LOL

I found a box of all different shaped paper crimpers and I have not used a paper crimper in years, but it was the perfect touch for the window shade 🙂

I am challenging you to look through a box of supplies that you may have hidden in your closet or under your bed and see what you find and then create a masterpiece.

~ Enjoy your Sunday Everyone ~

Close To My Heart ~ Workshops Your Way ~ Regatta

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share a quick post with you to show you what I have been up to in my craft world.

Since it has been a cold week here in North Florida (I know a lot of you are snowed in but for Florida its cold) and I have been dreaming of warmer weather.

What a great way to dream when you are surrounded by the new Regatta Paper PacketMy Anchor Stamp set and these wonderful My Anchor Thin Cuts.
