Hello My Fellow Crafters,

WOW!  I can’t believe that I just made this card.  My nephew Ryan graduated high school and will be leaving for college in 2 months.   Where did the time go?  And if I am feeling like this I can’t imagine how my sister feels 🙂

I used the Cricut Expression and the Wild Card Cartridge to make the graduation cap and tassel.  Also cut the tassel out 3 times so that the school colors were all there. For the lettering I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge.  Also embossed a piece of black cardstock with the Cuttlebug and a Star embossing folder from Bringing Crafts-Too You.  I just had to add stickles to the stars and also to the class of 2015.

~ Congratulations Ryan~

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Cricut Cartridge.  I have been seeing a lot of crafty bloggers talk about this exclusive Cricut Cartridge only available through Close To My Heart.

So, I had to find a demonstrator in my area and order this cartridge and get in on all the fun.  This was such a good purchase.  I think you have heard me say that before 🙂

There are so many images 700 to be exact, and the Pop-Up cards are too cool.  With Halloween coming up in the next few weeks I decided to play with this pop up function.  Using my Cricut Expression it cut perfectly.  The folding was a little tricky at first but with my score board it make it easier.

The inside of this card is so cool I don’t want to put anything on the outside but it looks sooo boring, so I decided to just make it super simple, and here is what I came up with.

Stickles added the perfect “bling” to this card.  I might have to add some to the inside too.  Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a Happy Halloween.

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Every time that I make a greeting card I take a few pictures.  Well my file is getting really big, which means that I have not shared with you all of my fun creations.

This card was for my sister-in-laws birthday.  She loves cats, plus her cat is really fluffy like the cat in this rubber stamp by Stampabilities.  I wanted to keep the card simple, yet not boring so I embellished with some ribbon from Ribbon Trends and the small flower that I made with the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and Cricut Expression machine.

Using Copic sketch markers I just outlined the image and it gave it just the right amount of color.  The very muted background was done with a sponge dauber and memento inks.

I have heard this saying before and I thought it was really funny but didn’t have a stamp, so I used my own handwriting and wrote the sentiment on the front of the card as well as the inside.  The rest of the saying inside reads… The more you have the more you want to gag.

The smile on the cat is so confident and is telling us that, I am cute and I know it 🙂

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am ready for a little warmer weather.  Most people think that when you live in Florida its always warm weather with swaying palm trees,  well the palm trees are swaying but let me tell you that we have had freezing weather for two nights, and during the day it didn’t get into the 60’s.  I know others have it really bad, but it’s cold 🙂

Anyway, when it’s cold outside you want to stay inside and what a better time to craft.  So as I was in the kitchen making myself a cup of hot chocolate, I looked at my trash can and got a great idea.  Let’s decorate a plain white trash can into a one of a kind trash can.

I didn’t want to make anything permanent just in case I was going to change the color accents in the kitchen so I decided to use the repositionable  Joans Craft World vinyl for this project. Since my tablecloth has all palm leaves on it,  I decided to make a palm tree using the Cricut Expression along with the Life is a Beach cartridge.

Just using two sheets of the Joans Craft World, Beach Theme, Repositionable Craft vinyl (light brown and celadon),  I made an ordinary trash can into a really fun and creative one.

Hello My Friends,

My Godson’s birthday is this month and I wanted to make him a special card.  He loves cookies and we sent him a big box of Oreo cookies as part of his present.  As I was looking the box it gave me a great idea.  Make a Oreo cookie card.

The Picture didn’t come out that good but the card looked great!

I made the cookie using the Cricut Expression along with the Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge.  The circle scallop shape was great  for the cookie top and bottom and just a circle for the cream.  Also using the Cuttlebug I embossed the top with the polka dot embossing folder.

Then to make it a personal cookie instead of cutting out the letters for Oreo I used the Plantin SchoolBook Cricut Cartridge and cut out Tyler’s name for the top of the cookie.  Attached the top and bottom with a mini brad.

Looking at this picture as I am writing this post is making me want a big glass of milk and some cookies 🙂

Wishing Tyler A Very Happy Birthday!

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