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 Melt My Heart... CCC #59

This week @ CCC, it's all about the kids. Your challenge is to make a Valentine's Day card for a child. That's it!!! You can use any cartridge and any colors you like.

I chose to use the Smiley Cards cartridge for the ice cream cone and the Paisley cartridge for the heart.

Don't forget to stop by and show us your take on this challenge.



Valentine's Bouquet... The Cutting Cafe

I promise the next card will use some different colors other than red, black and white. I've been hooked on those colors and it seemed to work well for this card.

I used the Flower Pot Shaped Card Template from the Cutting Café for this card. The template comes with the shaped card and lots of flowers. It really made putting this project together easy as 1, 2, 3.



Red, Black, and White...CCC #57

Well CCC Design Team #2 is back with a pretty neat challenge this week. It's a color challenge. You can use any cartridges and any theme, but you have to use the colors red, black and white. That's one of my favorite color combinations so I really enjoyed this challenge. I chose to make a "Just Because" card. This one can be used for various occasions.

Now let's see what you have...!!! Stop on by the CCC site and join in with us.

This entire project was done with the Cricut Sweet Treats Cartridge.

Card Details are as follows:

Card Base: (#4 Cards Feature) - 9.22 (w) X 5.00 (h)
White Card Layer: (#4 Shift Cards Feature) - 4.39 (w) X 5.71 (h)
Gift: (Presnt1) + (Shift Presnt1) + (Layers Presnt1) - cut @ 4.0 (h)


Words of LOVE... Cutting Cafe

I’m back with another Valentine’s Day theme card!!! This card uses the Words of Love Colored Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Café. The set is HUGE and versatile. You can print them, resize them, change colors, import and cut them with SCAL or MTC and a lot more.

For my card base, I imported the Scalloped frame PDF into Make the Cut Software. I then cut it with my die cutting machine. Using scallops on my cards is one of my favorite things so I'll return to this set often!!!

The jumbled words were printed from the Words of Love set as well. I think it made a great background paper!!!

The cute little rose is from the Sizzix 3D Flower die cut.

Until next time, Enjoy…


Quick and Easy...

Feeling a little under the weather, but I wanted to post a quickie birthday card that I made for a coworker. Sometimes quick and easy is the only way to go!!!



All About Valentine's Day...Cutting Cafe

Time flies, huh? I can’t believe we’re already approaching Valentine ’s Day!!! To get started with my cards, I chose to use some of the Valentine’s Day designs from The Cutting Café. The love birds with hearts and the "Together" sentiment are part of a printable stamp set called “All About Valentine’s Day”. You can color them in with pens or you can choose to do as I’ve done and color them using any desktop publishing software program. Or you can cut them out with your favorite scrap paper. The stamps are easily resized too!!! The love birds were sized larger for the card, but scaled down to fit the circle punch for the envelope. Nice! And what’s Valentine’s Day without something sweet. I used the Cutting Café “Candy Box” cutting file to make the adorable candy box. You can fill them with whatever you like. I chose to fill mine with some yummy Granola Thins. They were perfectly sized for this box. More cards to make. See ya soon.

Until then, enjoy…
