Welcome...

So glad you chose to stop by!

I hope to use this blog to share some of my handmade cards as well as some of my scrapbook pages and maybe a few pics here and there that may or may not make it to a scrapbook page.

Scrapping for me is simply a fun hobby that I don't do often enough. More often than not, I'm a collector of all things scrap... i.e. tools, paper, embellishments...

Now to become motivated... Maybe this blog is just the way to do it...

Enjoy and come back SOON!

Hugs and Kisses.... CCC #12

The Cricut Cardz Challenge this week made me realize that there’s one creative feature on many of the cartridges that I’ve downright neglected. That feature is the “card feature”. So the challenge was to make a card using this feature. We could use any colors and any theme. I chose the Valentine’s theme. I used my favorite colors black & white with a touch of color. I loved this challenge. I used the “Card/Tab” function on the Cricut Paisely Cartridge. This particular card function is with the "Elephant1" cut. You can’t really tell in the picture but the heart is actually a cut-out in the card. I placed the white cardstock with the sentiment behind the cut-out. The matching envelope is also from the Paisley cartridge. I love how both the card and the envelope are cut such they are kept closed by a tab/slot.

After I completed this card, I started to look @ my other cartridges to see if they had this feature. I will definitely be using it again and SOON!

Enjoy...
