Hello My Fellow Crafters,

AHOY MATEY ~ Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day and I wanted to share with you a really fun Cricut Card Idea that I made to celebrate the occasion.

talk like a pirate day 2013

This little pirate was made with the 3 Birds on Parade Cricut Cartridge.  I think this cartridge is soooooo fun!

After cutting him all out and putting him together I decided that his sword needed some shine, so just added some silver stickles and  now it  looks great.

Then had some scrap Kraft paper and so I literally tore it up to look like land, sponged some Rich Cocoa (Brown) Memento ink onto the edges for more of a dimensional look.

For the background of the ocean all I did was take the other end of the scrap paper that I tore and used it as a stencil and lightly sponged Bahama Blue Memento ink onto the white card cardstock.

~ Enjoy Your Day Matey ~

Maybe you will find a Treasure  Chest filled with Craft Supplies 🙂

Card Supplies:

Hello My Friends,

Today I want to share with you a handmade coffee cup birthday card that I made for my brother-in-law.  I have seen lots of cards in the shape of a coffee cups like the ones you would see at your local coffee shop, and I thought that would be a fun idea for a birthday card.  Well after looking at all of my Cricut Cartridges, would you believe that I did not have that cartridge?    So here is where a little imagination and some creativity comes in.

Using the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge, Gypsy and Cricut Expression machine,  I made a coffee cup card.

I cut the shape in blackout mode of the refrigerator, yup, you read that correctly the refrigerator.  All I did was cut the two small legs off the bottom and I had the shape of a coffee cup.  I was enclosing a gift card into this card so i just made sure when sizing this card that the card would fit inside without sticking out.  Using the Gypsy I welding the sides together which made a card.  All I needed to do is fold in the center.

As I am writing this post and looking at the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge booklet and  I am laughing because I could have just used the shift function and I would have got the same image and wouldn’t have had to cut off the legs. 🙂

Anyway I increased the size and cut it out again but his time with a brown cardstock.  Then using a paper cutter (or you could use a scissor) just snipped off the top pf the refrigerator shape to make it look like a lid.  It looked good but seeing pictures of coffee cup lids they had some curve to it, so I took a small oval paper punch and with one punch on each side did the trick of looking like a lid.  Then added a piece of raffia for a little extra dimension.

For the bottom half of the coffee cup took the brown cardstock, cut a strip that would wrap around the entire card (just like the cup wrap you would get in a coffee shop so you don’t burn your hands on the hot cup)  ran that strip through the Cuttlebug with embossing folder.  Final touch was the circle birthday sentiment, circle punch then applied with a pop dot.

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!

Hello all of my crafting friends ~ I know that it has been awhile but I am back and ready to have some fun.

I have a new “craft world” I moved from the high desert in New Mexico to now living on an island in Florida and loving it.  I really forgot how much I love the ocean.  The sound of the waves is so calming and also gives you time to reflect on what is really important in ones life.  Well at least that is what it has done for me.

Anyway, the moving of the old craft studio to the new one has been very exciting.  When I was packing up the old studio, I found things that I forgot that I had or didn’t even know that I had to things that I knew was time to give away.  My girlfriend who is also very crafty works in a large company with alot of crafty people so I gave her scrapbooking magazines, card making magazines and even hard cover books of different kinds of crafts that I knew that I would not need and would be of help to some other crafter.

I do have to say that being organized really helped alot.  And also having the white cubes scrapbook organizers/furniture, are the best for having to change the shape and size of each work station to accommodate a new space.  It took a couple of moving things to different walls but I think I figured it out (for now at least)

I made a workstation just for my Cricut Expression, Gypsy and accessories, and when the rest of my cubes are delivered I will do the same for my Cuttlebug and all of the accessories that go with it such as my embossing folders.  I also have some of my rubber stamp ink pads on the carousel from Stampin’ Up and as you can see the base for this Cricut workstation is storage containers with drawers  for some of my rubber stamps and rubber stamp supplies.

Believe it or not I still don’t have all of my scrapbook cubes or all of my supplies they are on a second shipment from our move.  I can’t wait for them to arrive so I can finish organizing everything.

The natural light in this room is great and it’s also good that I have some lamps around too.

Well let me get back to setting up so I can start making my notes to all of our family and friends with the new stamp that my hubby got me for my birthday.  It’s a We Moved stamp.  I will show it to you in the next post.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!

I hope that everyone is having a nice St. Patrick’s Day today.  You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy this holiday.  I was thinking of what people do on St. Patrick’s day and this is what I came up with.

1.  Go to a Parade or watch it on television

2.  Eat Corned Beef & Cabbage

3.  Drink Green Beer

4.  Where clothing that is Green

Well that is all that I can think of, anyway I found a cute Mug of Beer (or root beer) on the Smiley Cricut Cartridge and decided to make it into a Saint Patrick’s Day card.  After I set it all up on my Cricut Gypsy, I used the Cricut Expression to cut out all the pieces.

I added some lime green Stickles to the foam of the beer, I just have to add some “bling” to this card, it makes it look so much better.  Then used a rubber stamp from PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange) with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the sentiment on the cover.

~ Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone ~

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
