New Card :)

I hope everyone is having an awesome week :) I just wanted to post a picture of the card I made for my cousin, it is going to be her 10th birthday in about two weeks, so I came up with this card using my new cricut lite cartridge Twinkle Toes (my new fav!!!)

The only thing I didn't particular care for was how plain the eyes are with the cut... so I took my white get pen and added a little shine with two dot to her eyes. I really like how it added a lot of depth and really made the cut... I kept the card very simple because I know my cousin and this card will be looked at for a total of maybe a minute before she is on to something else :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

My first Digi :)

Hello, hope you all had an amazing Friday! Last week I started playing with the idea of making my own digital stamps... I started drawing and fiddling around and I came up with this... (to download please right click and save the file)

Now I am by no means the drawer in my family! That would be my very talented sister (my monkey mascot was drawn by her) :) I have been after her for some time to please draw me something else, but she has been totally busy lately so I thought I would try my hand at it :) I think she came out very cute and simple. I made a card using my digi and here is the video of that...

This digi is totally free for you to download and use on whatever you would like :) The only thing I ask is that if you do use it in a project please mention where you got it and direct them back to my blog to download for them self. Thank you! If you like this and would like to see more digital stamps by me please feel free to leave a comment and let me know and I will try to come up with more :) Now have a great weekend!

Paper Playtime Challenge

Hi everyone, I made a card for the Paper Playtime Challenge... The challenge was to make a masculine card with a sentiment. I have a really hard time making masculine cards, there is just something about adding ribbon, flowers and glitter to a card :) But here is what I came up with...

I tried to keep it very CAS (Clean and Simple) I thought I would kill two birds with one stone so this is my entry and it is also my dads, Father's Day card... never hurt being too soon on making cards right? I used my Cricut lite Handy Man cartridge to get the hammer and nails, which I cut out of the same color I used for the base of my card and then I silvered embossed them. The sentiments I just printed out on my computer, I really like the way it turned out and I am pretty sure my dad will too. Have a great day!

Episode 62 - Haul Time

Hi Everyone!

Hi all, I hope you had an awesome Sunday! I was all about relaxing today :) I only did two things... My dad and I went out to his shed and he taught me how to use his Lathe. I had a lot of fun learning and although I am definitely a beginner :) I made a small ?:) flower vase? I guess? :) lol... but I had a lot of fun, and that is what counts :) I will post a pic soon. The other thing is almost every Sunday I cook dinner :) Have I ever mentioned I love to cook? Well tonight was one of my favorites... Honey Lime Chicken Sandwich's and Pasta Salad :) Super easy and delicious... I couldn't help myself, so I snapped a picture to show you :)
If you would like, let me know in a comment and I will gladly share the recipe with you :) OK off to do a little crafting now :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Top o' the morning to ya! (or should I say night?) I just got back from my sister and brother in-laws and I wanted to share a card I made for a challenge over at Gina's blog. The theme was to be St. Patty's day and have a lot of layers so this is what I came up with. :)

I really like the way this card turned out. I am terrible at making monochromatic cards, but I really feel like this one came out nice. Well I am off to relax, Have a great St. Patrick's Day and as always Happy Crafting!

Long Time, No See :)

Hey everybody, I haven't been on here for every! I got burnt out after Christmas and hadn't been crafting much :( Now I have been spending the last Saturday's (my usual days for filming/crafting) for helping my sister and brother in-law move. They are buying there first house and, it has been crazy busy! So today I wanted to share the card I made for them as a congrats!

I used the Cricut Lite Handy Man cartridge to get the "Our First House" cut I also added some flowers and felt birds from Michael's $1 aisle. I really love the way it turned out! I was very pleased with it because to tell you the truth I thought I had lost it for making cards. Do you every get that way? Ok well I just wanted to do an update, I am still around and I am going to be posting some other cards, I did this week as well. As always have a great day and Happy Crafting!
