Dream Away.......

     I was planning on taking a break from entering any challenges this week, I just wasn't feeling it and I've been posting like everyday!  Then, I realized it's hard to take a break, I'm one of those obsessed paper crafters that needs to make something to feed my addiction.   Do they make a pill for this problem?  Hmmmm....


 Anyways, I made this card for a Relax/Transportation/Splish Splash challenge.   I think of a cruise ship when it comes to water, relaxing and travel.  I can imagine myself out on the deck, laying in the sun, listening to the ocean, dreaming about paper crafting.  LOL..



I used Summer Vacation for my Cruise ship, added a wave sticker per the CAS-ual Friday Challenge and a dream sentiment as my inspiration for Whimsical Wednesday.

Thanks for looking.....and dreaming!

It's your day....Smile!

    I designed "Miss Croc" to enter her into "It's a Jungle Out There" challenges for Cricut Cardz Challenge #89 and Love to Crop Challenge.


   Miss Croc's head is cut and welded together from the Animal Kingdom cartridge.  I added some glitter to make her teeth and eyelashes sparkle. Stamped a sentiment, attached an animal print bow and she's all smiles for her birthday. 

Thanks for Looking!

Bridal Luncheon ...

I'm excited to share my creations as a guest designer for Decorate to Celebrate this week.  The challenge this week is to design a Wedding, Bridal Shower or Engagement Party Theme. I decided to decorate for a Bridal Luncheon to show appreciation for those important ladies who will share in your special day.

I just love these bright and fun colors for a Summer wedding.  I designed a centerpiece arrangement, bridal party gift boxes, and napkins.

Hello Chick.......

  This may be my favorite card I've ever made!   Just check out her little red shoes, purse and matching headband!  I made this circle card for Celebrate the Occasion- Anything Occasion Card. 


The circle is welded together on my Gypsy from Wild Card, the cute little bird is from 3 Bird's on Parade and all her adorable accessories are cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.  I added some paper flowers, a bow and a simple stamped "Hello" and she's all ready to fly.

Birthday Tri-Fold Card......

  I've been playing with my Scor-Pal again and decided to make a Birthday card using only my scraps left over from another project.   I just love the colors Pink, Lime Green and White! 

I'm entering this into:
Birthday Sundaes Challenge #23- Color Challenge
Fantabulous Cricut # 74- Birthday Bash
CAS-ual Friday's Challenge- Embossing



This card was simple to make by adding embossed paper for dimension, stamping a few sentiments and attaching some flowers with brads.
Thanks for looking!

School Time...........

I made this cute Back to School card from the Locker Talk cartridge.  The clock hands are attached with a brad so they can be moved to change the time. My son's school starts at 9:05

Sweet and Simple......

I made this little cookie box to enter into a few fun challenges. I had many ideas on how to decorate this box but I just decided to keep it Sweet and Simple. 



The box is made out of only 3 colors (including the box paper) per the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge rules.  I made 3 cuts for the scallop, circle and sentiment.  I added the same ribbon in 3 different places as an embellishment.   Since this is a cookie box it could be brought to a picnic for the CWC challenge or given as a gift for My Craft Spot and contain ribbons per the paper Variety challenge.

You Take the Cake Card...

Sharing  my You Take the Cake card that I designed from 4 different Cricut cartridges. Oh, how I love using my Gyspy, sooo handy!


Just Because Cricut Cartridge

You Take the Cake Card


I used my Gypsy to weld two scalloped squares together, cut the cake from Sweet Treats and used a sentiment from Just Because Cards. I used ribbon, texture and brads as embellishments.


Birthday Buckaroo.....

 I designed this layout and birthday card for my friend's son who's turning 2!

I'm entering this into :
Cricut 360' Challenge #7-Old West




   I used the Old West cartridge to make the wanted poster which is designed for a 5x7 photo of the birthday boy.  I heat embossed the WANTED letters, crimped the edges, added some brads and distressed with ink for an aged look.  I layered with burlap and twine and textured embossed the letter's to look like burlap.



Yee Haw.........Thanks for looking!

Ride the Bus.......

  I made this tag for my son to keep inside his backpack as a reminder for when he needs to ride the bus home from school.  It could also be used as bookmark.  I haven't shown it to my son yet so he may make me take the ribbon off  .  LOL.....



I cut the school bus from Locker Talk last year and never used it since it was to big for my previous project but now it fit's perfectly onto this tag.

I hope my son let's me keep the ribbon on.

Straight from the Heart Challenge........

  Just purchased the Hoot 'n' Holler Lite cartridge tonight @ Walmart since it was on CLEARANCE for $20!!  I was so excited to play with it that I thought I'd make something for a challenge.

I'm entering this into:
*Cricut Cardz Challenge #87 Straight from the Heart.
There challenge is to create a thank you card using hearts without the colors red or pink.

*Crafty Sentiments- Punches and Die Cuts


I made another challenge for myself and used only shades of green.  This cartridge is really cute and has a lot of cuts for a smaller cartridge so if you find it at your Walmart it's worth $20!

Thanks for looking!

Bug Hugs.........

  I had fun making this little caterpillar card! 

I'm entering him into:
* Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 72-Let's Get Buggy
*Make My Monday- Challenge # 10 Birds or Bugs


    I created my little caterpillar from the George Cartridge to cut the circles for the body, added google eyes and green pipe cleaners for his antenna's and stamp the card with a sentiment from My Pink Stamper.

Sail Away......

   Sharing my Sailboat card creation that I'm entering into:

Cooking with Cricut- Challenge #45-Sailboat
Birthday Sundaes Challenge #21- Birthday Card.


      This was a true challenge for myself to come up with an idea using a sailboat.  I decided on using the square card option off  Life's a Beach cartridge for the sailboat design.  I then used my Gypsy to cut out the square card and make the layers for the sailboat.


  I embossed the sailboat layers then used heat embossing powder on the mast and cabin.  I tore and chalked paper to make waves, added some red stickles and finished the card with a simple sentiment that can also be used as a birthday card.

                                                                     Thanks for looking!

Flowers for a Friend.........

     My dear neighbor  has been in the hospital for almost a month now due to a terminal illness.  Since she is physically unable to craft, she always loved to come over and see what I was working on.  I made this flower arrangement for her...



I used the George and Basic Shape Cartridge to make the layered flowers.  The flowers were glued on to dowels which are stuck into foam.  I tore green tissue paper to look like grass and choose a matching ribbon to wrap around the flower pot.  A simple stamp sentiment let's my friend know I'm thinking about her daily. 


  Thanks for looking!
