Fall leaves

Hi everyone!  Just thought I would post real quick to show you what I've been working on for 2 weeks (or more).


There are 54 3x3 cards.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, but these were a bit of work.  I embossed, stamped, outlined, glimmer misted, wrapped twine, tied bows and glued them all together!   I actually made 55, but my MIL wanted one for her fridge :)

Sorry the color isn't the best.  I'm on my way to an all-weekend crop with these but wanted a quick picture.

Have a great weekend!

Hugs to You

Hi everyone!  I discovered on Saturday that I am just a better day time crafter.  Which is hard since I have a full-time 8-5 job!  But I was able to make a few cards over the weekend, one of which I can show you.  I submitted a few for  publication so we will see how that goes :)  And I have been working on 55 3 x 3 calling cards for a week, here and there at night.  They need to be done by the 28th.  I think I am half way done so I'm doing pretty good :)

I'm sending this card in a care package this week.  I really wanted to get it off on Saturday, but I did not get it finished in time.


Here are the details:

  • Hello Kitty cut at 4 inches
  • Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine
  • DCWV paper
  • My Pink Stamper Everyday Life stamp
  • Yellow Stickles
  • Doodlebug Mini Jewels
  • Pop dots
I hope to have some more to post this week.   But I am having a House Party on Saturday and need to get ready for that too.  I should Cricut a banner--that would be fun!

Have a great week!

Boo to You! Create a Critter 2

Hi everyone!  I am supposed to be making a DT project, but look what I have--Create a Critter 2!!  I LOVE this cartridge.  It's being released this week, but people have been finding it at Joann's.  So my friend texted me that they were at our local Joann's and I ran right over.  Good thing they have a sale on carts :)

I made this card for the sneak peek challenge on Cricut.com but am not sure I'm going to enter.  I think the prize is this cart and another so I'm not in a rush to enter any more!


Here are the details:

  • Ghost cut at 4 inches; 'cloud' at 2 inches from Create a Critter 2
  • DCWV The Bewitched matstack
  • Grape Licorice Trendy Twine (new awesome color!)
  • My Pink Stamper Spookalicious set
  • iRock gems
  • Glam Pink Stickles
  • Signo White pen
  • pop dots

I had to actually use my cartridge in my E2--I am so not used to using it without my Gypsy :)  I really should learn about it!  You can see in the second picture that I cut 2 white layers and pop dotted them to give a little dimension.

I wanted to mention one more thing--There are 28 days left to take advantage of the double stamp stet for $5 with Close to My Heart.  And now that it's September, there is a new stamp set of the month.  It is a cute fall themed set that you can get for $5 when you spend $50.  So that is really a total of 3 sets for $10 if you get both!   I have a flyer with this set on it I can email you.  Also, if you would like a catalog, I can send you one :)

Just contact me if you want to order--I will give you a 20% discount which is not good for the $5 sets though.  But it does save you some money :)

Have a wonderful Sunday!
