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!


BABY Love... CCC #43

Back again with another great challenge from the Cricut Cardz Site. This week the challenge is to make a baby card using the colors orange, green, yellow and white ONLY. I’m always challenged by color restrictions (unless you restrict me to my favorites black and some accent color). This challenge made me stretch a little beyond my normal color choices.

I think this little giraffe cut is too cute. As a matter of fact, it is so cute, I decided to cut a mommy and a baby giraffe. All in all, this was a fun challenge.

Details on cuts, cartridges, and sizes are below… All bling was applied with the i-Rock by Imaginisce.

Stop on by the Cricut Cardz Site and join in!!!

Cricut Cartridges (and sizes) used:

Card Base (2 5.5 X 5 inch welded ) – Lacy Labels
Card Layer (5.10 X 4.90) – Lacy Labels
Mommy Giraffe (cut @ 3.10) – Sugar and Spice
Baby Giraffe (cut @ 1.70) – Sugar and Spice
Large and small Butterflies (cut @ 2.50 & 2.05) – Lacy Labels



Take it Slow Card... Cricut Imagine...

OK... I've always admitted that I'm a gadget girl sooooo when the new Cricut Imagine (CI) was announced, I was immediately interested. Of course, I said I'd wait until it had been out for about six months before I purchased. Well that was before the HSN launch. After seeing the HSN bundle, I purchased that day! And since we're a team, I convinced my BFF and scrappy buddy Karen to purchase too!!! It didn't take much LOL!

This card was done solely with the Imagine (with the exception of the sentiment at the bottom). This entire card started as just white paper. I used the CI Best Friends cartridge to print the pattern papers and used the RGB feature to get the matching solid blue on the turtle's shell and the solid black on the turtle's body as well as the black paper at the bottom of the card. I ran the black paper through the Cuttlebug.

This is a simple card that was totally done in one 12 X 12 piece of white cardstock (there was paper left over). So far I like the CI. I can see lots of possibilities.



Seasons Change...CCC #41

The Cricut Cardz Site has a great challenge this week!!! The challenge is to create a Fall card using any Cricut Cartridge and any colors EXCEPT brown, orange, and yellow…
