Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


Today I have a sweet little Hello card to share.


I like having cards on hand to mail out and hopefully brighten someone's day just because. It's always nice to get something other than bills in the mailbox right? For this card, I found some pretty papers from an older Doodlebug stack and let those be the inspiration for my card. I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles to cut out my floral paper as well as the orange paper. I then used one of the borders from the Scallop Borders set to create a fun scallop on the orange. I layered them together, added some ribbon and glued them onto my card base. I used the Stitched Oval Dies to cut out a white oval and cut out the smile from the same orange cardstock using the Smile Dies and placed that onto my oval. I finished off my greeting by using the Smile stamp set. I had some little flower sequins in my stash that I thought went perfectly, so I added a few with some orange stickles in the centers. This card was so super simple but I really like how it turned out. It also kinda reminds me of the 70's lol!

You Warm My Heart

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday!
Today I have a card to share with you that I made with a few challenges in mind. 

The first challenge was for the sketch challenge over at 

The second challenge is for the 

Here is a look at the cards that I made.


I love Doodlebug papers but i have always had a hard time trying to figure out what to do with the little cut aparts that come in the 6x6 paper pads. They are so little so I normally just add some to my project life albums but the sketch over at Sketch N Scrap was a lightbulb moment for me! lol! I created two card bases out of some Kraft cardstock and die cut 2 white scallop rectangles. I figured while I had everything out, I would try and make 2 cards. (My card stash is getting a little low). I cut out some patterned papers, adhered them to my white card layer and added a bit of ribbon before adding it to my card base. I finished off the cards with a couple of the little cut aparts popped up with foam tape and jazzed them up with just a bit of glossy accents. Oh! and of course a bow :) 

Here is a look at my second card, which I thought went perfectly for the challenge over at


Both cards were made with the same materials but I love how they are the same yet different :)

Stick It Down March Sketch Challenge


Hi crafty friends! 
I hope your Monday is off to a marvelous start! 

 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? 
The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

 Here is another look at the card sketch for March 2017:


and here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


This card was pretty simple to make. I used the Text tool in my Cricut Design Space and wrote out "HAPPY" five times and then cut it out with my Cricut Explore. I placed some purple cardstock behind it and filled in the letters with a little bit of wink of stella for some shimmer. I placed it on to my plaid card and stamped out the 'birthday" onto a piece of scrap cardstock and popped it up with some foam tape. I added a few purple sequins and my card was done. Super fast and easy but I think it looks pretty cool!

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog and take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)

Easter Bunny Costume

Hey crafty friends! 
How is your Wednesday going so far?
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


Today I have another Easter card to share with you.


I love this little guy in his bunny costume! I think he is absolutely adorable! I stamped him from the Bunny Costume stamp set with some Memento ink and then colored him in with my Copics. I used the coordinating Bunny Costume die to cut him out. I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies to cut out my rectangles. I used a simple hole punch to punch out my pink circles and then I added some glossy accents on top to give the appearance of enamel dots. So simple and sweet! I love it!

For this card I used an older sketch.
 I can't find the original post but I will link to the address on the sketch.

 I pulled out some patterned paper scraps and layered them onto my Kraft cardbase. I cut out my postage stamp frame using a die and layered that sweet little dog that I colored with my Copics on it towards the top. I stamped my greeting and placed it under the doggy :) I finished off my card with a few enamel dots in the upper right hand corner. Super easy but I really like how the focus stayed on that sweet little pooch :)

Christmas Card Challenges #8

Hey crafty friends!
I hope that your Sunday is off to a great start!
Today starts the beginning of a new challenge over at

The challenge is a photo challenge:

I love all things foiled and shiny so this was right up my ally lol!
Here is a look at the card that I created based on what inspired me from the photo:


Like I said, I love all things shiny and I love wrapping presents in the foiled wrapping paper. My kids don't like it too much, says it hard to tear open lol! Oh well, mom likes the way it looks under the tree. I win! :) I'm getting off topic lol! Anywho, I I covered my card base with some gold foil striped patterned paper. I cut out a piece of gold glitzy paper and notched the end to give it a banner look. I cut out a circle from some striped vellum and adhered a tree that I cut out with my Cricut Explore on top. I was able to pop up my vellum circle layer by hiding the foam tape behind the tree. I finished off my card with a satin white bow. Believe me, this picture does not do any justice to the shimmer of this card in real life. It sparkles and shines like crazy and I love it! haha!

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :)

Hey crafty friends! 
I hope you are having a terrific Thursday!! 
Today starts a new challenge over at the 

We have two sponsors for challenge #64 and they are:
and

Here is a peek at the cookie photo inspiration for this challenge:

(not my photo)

Here is the card that I created based on the cookie photo:


I decided to make an easel card from a My Scrap Chick svg file. I cut all the layers out and inked the fence pieces. I assembled my card pieces, adding some glossy accents to the hinges and handle as well as some faux stitching on the grass. I cut out my "hello" five times and stacked them so that they would have enough height to keep the easel card standing.

Happy Easter Peep :)


Hey crafty friends! 
How is your Wednesday going so far?
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 
BlogButton

I thought I would make a Easter card using an older sketch from Mojo Monday (sketch 238).


I cut some scraps into 1.25" squares and placed them onto my card. I "stitched" around each square with my white gel pen. I used the Scallop Circle Dies for my pink circle and layered a circle that I cut out using the Stitched Circle dies on top. I stamp that sweet little chick from the Easter Peeps stamp set, colored her with my Copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut her out. I placed her onto the white stitched circle. I stamped my greeting, from the Easter Peeps stamp set, and created a little tag and tied a fun twine bow. I finished off the card with some enamel dots and a bit of wink of stella onto the egg.

Tropical Hello

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a great day so far!

Today I would like to share a card with you that I made for a few challenges.
Here is a look at the sketch provided by Sketch N Scrap:


Here is a look at the card that I created based on the sketch above:


To create my card, I picked some pretty papers from a My Mind's Eye paper pad that I've had for awhile. I was inspired by the pretty peachy colors in the paper pad. I used a wood grain paper and layered it on top of my white card base. I picked out a pale peach paper from the stack and used a embossing folder to create the small dots. I inked all my edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped out some flowers and used my Copics to color them in. I added them onto my card and added some white accents to the flower centers with a white gel pen. I added my greeting using a HELLO die and finished off my card with some iridescent sequins.  I think it came out so pretty and am very happy with the end result.

FCCB #296: St. Patrick's Day


 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #296-St. Patricks Day
Make a project about St. Patricks Day, such as Shamrocks or Leprechauns

This Weeks Sponsor



Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project:


I found this sweet little Pot Of Gold file when I did a search for St. Patrick's Day in Design Space. I'm guessing there is a digital cartridge titled St. Patrick's Day that is included with your Cricut Access membership. There are a total of 6 images in this set, I just decided to use the Pot Of Gold so that I could use up some scraps of gold glitter paper. I love when I am able to use up my scraps! Anywho, I layered all my pieces and set it off to the side while I worked on my card. The green paper is actually from a Christmas patterned paper pad but I thought it worked pretty good for a St. Patty's green. I covered the front of my white cardbase with some green patterned paper and added a strip of black and a thin strip of gold glitter. I stamped my greeting into the corner and die cut an oval with a stitched die. I glued my pot of gold onto the oval and popped it up with some foam tape to my card base. I finished off the card with a few gold sequins. Pretty simple but I adore all the sparkle!!

Be sure to stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see the projects that my design team sisters created! I hope you will power up that Cricut and make a St. Patrick's Day project for the challenge! I would love to see what you create!

💜 I hope you have a great crafty day!! 💜

Pink & Main March Challenge

Hey crafty friends!! 
Happy March!!
 The beginning of the month means that it is time for a new challenge over at the
 Pink & Main Challenge Blog!!
 Yay!!



The theme for the March challenge is....
Spring
All you need to do is make a project with a Spring theme and link it up over at the Pink & Main Challenge blog. Remember, you do not need to use Pink & Main products in order to play along with us :) 

Here is a look at the project that I created for the challenge:



I used the Stitched Circle Dies to cut out a circle from some fun striped paper and placed it on top of a scallop circle that I cut out using the Scallop Circle dies. I popped that onto the front of my basket with some foam tape. I colored that sweet little bunny from the Seeds Of Kindness stamp set and used the coordinating die to cut her out and placed her in the middle of my circle. I decided my handle needed a little sprucing up so I cut out some strips using the Lacy Border dies and adhering those to each side of my handle. I finished off my basket with a pretty little white tulle bow and some pink basket shred. Now I just need a little help from the Easter Bunny to fill it :)

I hope you will create a project and join us for the challenge!
 I would love to see what you create!
