Is it Me

or does anyone else make happy things when life throws you a curve? This past week has been such a rollercoaster here. So I made this cute little set for our little ones friend for her birthday yesterday. It just brought a smile to my face (not to mention our little one loved it too..).
I used the Sesame Street Cricut cartridge for the frog and Celebrations cart for the balloon. You know the Cricut carts are on sale right now over at Hallmark Scrapbook . Pop on over and check them out. You won't be disappointed. I also used Ranger's Stickles that you can purchase in the store. Inside the box I added a stuffed frog that holds gift cards...Isn't that frof just the cuttest? It made me happy happy to use
This litte card I made with the inspiration from Bunnylover over at Hallmark Scrapbook . She's been sharing her cute cards using clipart. Go and check out her gallery.
I used the cute little raggedy doll I purchased along time ago from Scrappin Doodles. They make the cutest little country clipart. Not to mention they are hiring. They are looking for someone to write tutorials using their clipart. So if you think you might be interrested, pop on over and read the details. Good luck if you try out. It seems like an awesom deal too...
I printed out raggedy's onto one piece of cardstock. And then I just cut each one into different layers. The second photo shows a little more. I also used the Zooballo (grass and tree) and Storybook (marque) Cricut cartridges that you can purchase at Hallmark Scrapbook.
Well that's it for today...Have a great week ahead.

Tuesday Already

I wanted to share some cards I made last weekend. I received my order from Hallmark Scrapbook with the Hello Kitty cart in it and played alittle...if you haven't been over to the store, you should pop in and check out the deals that are going on right now. They are scrumptious!!! The paper is the euphoria collection from Basic Grey which went perfectly for these cards that you can also purchase in the store. With spring and summer coming up, these will go perfectly with your projects and layouts. And they cordinate so well together.... So what are you waitng for, come on over and check out the store. Stop in and say hi on the message boards to. We would love to see you.
Here's one cut 3 ways from the Cricut cartridge. Nothing fancy, just simple....and did you notice---no ink on the know how hard that was for me...hehe..
here's a card I made for a challenge on the message board at Hallmark Scrapbook. Hop on over and check them out. The ladies are so inspiring and very creative they will knock your socks off...I am just in aww when they post their creations....
I used the Doodlecharms Cricut cart for the ladybug cut at 3 1/2"...I also used the stamps from Studio G....
Here's a little set I made using the tags bags and boxes Cricut cartridge. It's the crayon box. I'm using that as the envie. I cut up an old manilla folder and ran it through my cricut to cut the box out. I wanted to play around with the Tim Holtz technique using the Distress inks and water to give this a vintage feeling....printed a Valentine image (downloaded from the internet) and aged that using the inks with no water...this is such a fun technique, and it's very messy...but FUN!!!! can see more detail on this set by clicking here...
Well I hope everyone has a great day. Hugs from a warming up Charm City

Happy Thursday

Happy Thursday Bloggers.....jsut wanted to pop in and say Hi. Thought I'd show you what I have been up to....This was just a fast little candy bar wrapper to cover this big candy bar for a Valentine's Day present. Sorry for the photo...I just couldn't get good shots today... I used my Pazzles machine with the Boxes and Bags cd to make this vase. It's a four sided one. Added some little lollipops to the inside as a little Valentine's Day gift.... I purchased my Pazzles at Hallmark Scrapbook along with other Pazzle supplies. Stop on over and check out the store right now they are having a sale... this was a pizza box that I made for our little one's teacher at school. I totally can't remember where I got this file from...please forgive me....but I printed this onto cardstock and cut it out. Added some bling-- a soft spoken sticker from Me&My Big Ideas and some ribbon and such.
this is the inside. Not much going on just some candies inside some little cupcake cups...I do need to add a piece of paper to the inside lid....
These are what our DD's baby shower cards look like. The photos don't do them justice though...sorry about that...I used the New Arrival Cricut cart--the circle feet at 3"...this was a great cut cuz' I got 2 for 1....woohooo...we all love 2 fers
