My Pink Stamper Design Submission

I tried out for My Pink Stampers design team and I didnt make it but that is ok. I am just getting started and I am getting better the more I use my Cricut. I dont have a lot of time to craft like I would enjoy, but the time I do spend crafting makes me love it even more. So here is the card I submitted for the design team. I love it and had a lot of fun making it. I used the Create a Critter cartridge and will add what products I used to make the card in the morning.


Color Challenge, My Pink Stamper

Today on there is a color challenge to make something using pink, orange, green and brown. This is the card I made today for my mother in laws birthday which is today. Happy Birthday Marie! I did a close up pic so you could see the colors I used. My Cricut was acting up so it didnt cut everything perfectly but I love how it turned out. Hopefully she loves it to.

I used the following products to make this card;

Martha Stewart Create Bright Paper Pad: green, brown
Cricut Cardstock: orange, pink
Me&My Big Ideas patterned paper
American Crafts Premium Ribbon

I also opened Sweet Treats and used it to make the birthday cake and the words.

Hope you like it!
I edited this and added stars to the bottom of the card...

New Room, My Baby is Growing UP

So I havent been crafting because my 4 year old is getting his own room with a new bunkbed so I have been cleaning, purging and getting ready for his new room. I will post pics as soon as I am done. I was going to do a Toy Story room but I think in 6 months, they will like something else. I ended up doing Pirates by Olive Kids but I am wishing that Cricut would do a Pirate cartridge. They do have an octupus on Create a Critter and one pirate boy on the Cricut Lite cartridge B is for Boy so I will try to make something with those. I do need the Toy Story cartridge but for some reason it is not available yet.

Anyways pictures to come but I am busy getting my sons "BIG BOY" room ready and he loves it!

Sorry I havent posted anything new all weekend. I have been getting rid of things which is a big thing for me. I am cleaning house (and I went to garage sales Fri & Sat). Basically I am rearranging my boys rooms, changing out their closets since summer finally has decided to shine and rearranging my craft space. I promise I will post my card I submitted to My Pink Stamper to be on her design team tomorrow and I will try to make something new & cute! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Today is crazy and we have a play date so I am just going to update with a card I made a few weeks ago. (Today I will try to make something new)LOL I have a million cartridges just no time to do anything with them. To make this one, I used Cricut cardstock and made this card. For the background I also used cardstock from the Green Stack, courtesy of my sister Amy. I love raccoons and I think it turned out really cute!

This is the second card I made with my Cricut. I used Create a Critter cartridge and made the hedgehog and the saying. My sister Amy gave me the green paper that I used for a background and I used a polkadot ribbon from Michaels for the trim. I love Create a Critter, it is easy for me to use and I will use it a million times, all of the animals are adorable.

Just Starting Out

There are a few things that I love, my boys, my husband, going to garage sales and now scrapbooking. (Ok there might be a few more but just naming a few right now). I am mainly into making cards right now but eventually want to start making scrapbooks for the boys before they move out... I have never blogged before so bear with me, there are a lot of things that I am going to attempt to do that wont be perfect but Im sure I will get better as I go. I am eventually going to start a 365 scrapbook project where i make a card or scrapbook project everyday but I think for now I will just post as I go. I went to an awesome scrapbooking yard sale this past weekend so I am going to have to start making more things to use what I found.

The two cards that I posted were my very first card I made with my Cricut and one I made for Father's Day with some things I picked up at a garage sale. :) The Hoppy Father's Day frog card was made using the Create A Critter cartridge and some basic Cricut cardstock. I added in a polka dot background with some card stock I picked up at Michaels. The DAD card was made using chipboard letter cut outs (garage sale find) green Cricut cardstock, paper from the Green Stack and some embellishments (also a garage sale find). I had so much fun making these cards that hopefully I will get better and it will get easier as we go along.
