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!


You Have My "SUPPORT" - CCC #47

It's Cricut Cardz Challenge time again. This weeks challenge is to make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I hope you will join us in this challenge!!! Lets do it for the millions of individuals who know the up close and personal effects of Breast Cancer.

All items were cut with the Cricut with the exception of the rosette. The rosette was cut with the Sizzix Bigz 3D flower. I love that die cut.

Details and Cricut cartridges used for this card are as follows:

Card Base (2 - 4.85"(h)Lingerie cuts welded(shadow feature)) - Forever Young
Brown & White Polka Dot Layer (Lingerie Cut - 4.85"(h))- Forever Young
Pink Ribbons (all cut @ 1.25" (h)) - Stand and Salute
Envelope (cut @ 8.45" X 6.65") - Just Because Cards



Imagine-Nation Challenge w/ Emma

Here's a card a made for the 1st Imagine-Nation Monday Challenge with Emma. She gave us an easy start. The challenge was to use the Cricut Imagination to create anything we wanted. The only stipulation is that we had to use a stamp.

I used a combination of Cricut cartridges and Imagination cartridges for this card. The scallop base came from Accent Essentials. I used the Imagine to print the color on the scallop base using an RGB Code. The patterned paper and the tea cup are from the Imagine Best Friends cartridge.

The "enjoy" stamp is from Papertrey Ink and the "Two Cups" stamp is from Stampendous.

I'm still amazed at being able to use only white paper to create such colorful cards and LOs with a Cricut.



Wind Beneath My Wings...

I'm still getting to know my Cricut Imagine. I admit I haven't had a chance to spend a tremendous amount of time playing with it. I never cut out the various words and phrases that are on most Cricut cartridges so I thought it would be great to use the Imagine print function & use one of the phrases as the sentiment on my card front. I really like that feature.

Anyway, on this card, the Sentiment & branch were printed via the Imagine. The butterflies and leaves were both print and cut using the Imagine. The machine does so much more than this and in time, I'll be doing a whole lot more...
