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~

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

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 🙂

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 ~

My Godson’s birthday is this week and I need to make a handmade birthday card for him.  I wanted to use my Cricut Expression machine for this card.

After looking though all of my Cricut Cartridges, I decided to use my Gypsy and the download cartridge called Smiley Cards.  There is an image of a present that has the cutest smiley face, and I know that it will make Tyler smile when he opens up this card.

What I did to put some “bling” on this card was used some Stickles (cotton candy color) on the cheeks and mouth to give this smile a little shimmer.  I also used two rubber stamps.  One is from Inkadinkado with Tyler’s name and the other is the Happy Birthday rubber stamp from Hero Arts.  The ink that I used is Memento and the color is Paris Dusk (dark blue).

I just think that this cricut card idea turned out fantastic.  Making handmade greeting cards is the way to go!  Wishing Tyler a Very Happy Birthday.

Hope you are having a great day ~ I need to make a handmade birthday card today for my dearest friend.  I wanted a birthday card that would make her smile, nothing serious just a fun card.  So I had a great Cricut Card Idea, using my Gypsy and that great cartridge download Smiley Cards, and I believe that I have a winner.  I also used my Cricut Expression machine to cut this tea cup out.

Look how cute this tea cup turned out.

I made a tea bag label with beige cardstock and stamped happy birthday with a Hero Arts stamp set. I layered the tea cup onto first lavender Stampin Up cardstock, that was then layered onto polka dot paper from  DCWV the summer stack paper pack, then one more layer on burgundy cardstock that I also used a border punch by EK Success that has birthday candles.  I used gold stickles for the flames of each candle and then also used Martha Stewart Opaque white marker for the base of the candle.

This is just another great Cricut Card Idea that is sure to be a keeper in your handmade card file.  You don’t need alot of paper for this tea cup so you can use up some scraps that you have laying around if you like.

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