Flower Birthday

Image
Hi everyone!  I needed a card for a friend at work and was having trouble with what to do.  I decided I wanted to use some flowers from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

The card you see below is my second take--the 1st one turned out terrible!  I had stamped the Happy Birthday a little higher and thought there was too much empty space between that and the flowers--BIG mistake!!  I really hated it.  But I got up this morning and realized I had time to redo some of it.  Luckily, the flowers came off cleanly so I was able to re-cut the pretty label cut and reassemble.



 Here are the details:
Art Philosophy Cartridge:2 roses cut at 2 inches and 1 rose cut at 2 1/2 inchesLabel cut at 3 1/2 inches (I think)  and the outside dark layer cut a little bit bigger to not cover the pretty swirlsMy Pink Stamper Birthday Crazy stampDoodlebug patterned paperCreative Charms Gradient JewelsFrosted Lace SticklesZip Dry to assemble flowers and glue on--it sticks them on really well!I am happy with how it turn…

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #78

Hi everyone!  Today's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is A Pirate's Life in honor of National Talk Like a Pirate Day today--Arrr!  Just make a project with a Pirate Theme.

I choose to make a scrapbook page from when we were in Disney World this time last year.  *Sigh* Wish I was there now :)  My kids had a pirate makeover at The Pirate's Leauge since we were going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party  that night.  I have more pictures to scrap for that.


Here are the details:

Hi everyone!  Here's a card I made for a sketch challenge.  And glitter and or bling needed to be on it.  So I used both, of course!


Here are the details: Spiders cut at 3 inches from Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridgeMy Pink Stamper Spookalicious stampMartha Stewart Crafts Halloween Mat StackTeresa Collins Haunted Hallows blingFrosted Lace Sticklespop dotsI have purchased way too much Halloween paper this year!  There were 2 cute Martha Stewart mat stacks and then I have an Echo Park Pack, 2 DCWV Halloween/Fall stacks and then loose sheets of Imaginisce and some others I'm sure!  So you will be seeing lots of Halloween things from me I think :)

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend :)  Here's a quick card I made -- well, it would have gone much quicker if I could actually use Chic and Scary with my Gypsy.  But, for some reason it gives an error code.  I updated my E2 and it still did not work.  But at least I knew where the cartridge was and just plugged it in.  But I usually just use my Gypsy so that I don't have to have all the carts out.

Hi everyone and welcome to the monthly My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop!  I just love these :)   If you have just come from the very talented Tracy at Craft Junkie Too, you are on the right track.  But if you just came here 1st, be sure to start at the very beginning with My Pink Stamper.  You don't want to miss all the fun!
For today's hop, we were challenged to make a 3D item and use My Pink Stamper's new School Days set. You probably know that most of my projects are pretty easy and today is no different.  When I got the assignment, I knew right away what I wanted to do--the door hanger cut from the new Art Philosophy cartridge! 
This was so super simple to make and here are the (few) details: My Pink Stamper School Days set -- I heart school and starArt Philosophy cartridge door hanger cut at 11 1/2 inchesArt Philosophy cartridge tag cut at 2 3/4 inchesImaginisce Favorite Subject double sided paper from Geek is Chic line Mandarin Twine from the Twinerypop dots

Hi everyone! Today's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is Back to School--Use your ABC's or 123's :)  You just need to make sure to use at least one Cricut cut and use letters or numbers (or both if you want) on your project.

I choose to make a scrapbook page.  This really helps since I am years behind in my scrapping :)


Here are the details:
ABC's border cut at 11 inches from Graphically SpeakingApple cut at 3 inches from Plantin SchoolbookMy Pink Stamper School Days Stamps--1st day of school, star and school days on journal spotPattern paper from DCWV stackpop dots (on apple)I really love how this page turned out!  When I make a page for something specific, I always think I'll make even more pages to get caught up a little, but I usally don't :)

Hi everyone!  It's been a while since posting again.  I'm just trying to get back in the groove of work and the kids with homework and stuff. 

Today I have a card I made with the Art Philosophy cartridge collection.  I thought this was for a DT assignment, but I looked at the wrong one!  But, it's a cute little card I get to show you now :)
