Sparkle and Bling Card

The challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut blog is all about sparkle and bling. And since I love sparke and bling I had to enter. So, here is my card!

For this card I used the tag feature for my card base from the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge. The image on the front comes from the same cartridge. I used Jewels to embellish the ornaments on the trees. The bird was cut with glitter paper and the already shiny and I outlined the design with stickles on the embossed card pattern paper. 
Very fun challenge, thank you Fantabulous Cricut!

Another Great Sketch

Here's is another one of Sketch-N-Scraps sketches for November.
Sketch #45

My Take:

The layout was created using DCWV's Peachy Keene paper stack and the banners were cut using the Lovely Floral cricut cartridge. I embellished the small tag at the top with some Trendy Twine.

Summer Camping Layout

I'm always on the lookout for a good sketch and I found a couple of great ones on the Sketch-N-Scrap challenge blog. So, I decided to tackle their November layout sketches. I'll show you the sketch and then my take on it after.
Sketch #44

My Take:

For this layout I used the Cinnamon Luster Stack from DCWV. The title comes from the Paisley Cricut Cartridge, the accents that look like branches come from the Accent Essentials cartridge, and the circular base comes from the Lovely Floral cartridge. I embellished further with red colored stickles and some orange and black trenty twine.

I'm Just Popping to Tell You

I'm Just Popping to Tell You!!!

The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog is having a fun challenge this week. The challenge is to create a project using an animal diecut from your cricut cartridges. I can't resist an animal challenge, those are some of the most fun cuts!

I decided to use my Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge, as I have yet to really use it very much. It has such fun images on it and when I saw this cute bear sticking his head out of the trash can I knew I found the cut I wanted to use. I started to just cut it out to put on the front of a card (scroll down and there is a pic of the first card that I made), but I wasn't liking it very much. One of my favorite kind of cards to make is a shape card, so I figured I'd try again and make it a shape card instead. I welded the image together using my gyspy and I think it turned out pretty cute. I used some ink to distress it a bunch so it would look a little dirty, added some twine and buttons to embellish it. Using a sta…

Family Kept By God

This past weekend a good friend of mine had a housewarming party. They recently bought a new house and renovated it themselves. They did a fantastic job. I wanted to make them something for their new home and decided to check out my favorite source for ideas, Pinterest!
I found this great wood block craft that I thought would be perfect.
The Inspiration:

Here's my project:

I used the Storybook Cricut Cartridge for the word "Family" and I used the Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge for "Kept By God". I pulled out some pattern paper with the greens and yellows in it, as this is my friends favorite colors. For my ribbon I used some green Crinkle Ribbon. I have to say I love crinkle ribbon. If you are interested in getting some yourself you can check out My Craft Spot for some great color choices.

God Gave Us Faces

I recently had the privilege of attending a scrapbooking retreat. It was wonderful, let me say.  And not only was it a great weekend to get away and just be me, but it was extrememly productive. Since it was so productive. I decided I ought to share my productivity on my blog, YAY! So, here's the first installment of layouts I was able to complete for my family album.

This is a layout that I actually completed months ago, but finally got the pictures developed for it. It was so long ago that I did the actual layout I really can't remember which cartridges I used.

This paper was one of the perks of attending the retreat. I was so excited because it was so perfect for this picture I had of my daughter in her brothers Spiderman costume. The spider comes from the Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge (borrowed not owned) and the Spider Girl title was welded together using Type Candy Font Cricut Cartridge. The circle bases behind the picture come from George and Basic Shapes.

This was a fun la…
