Craft Warehouse Christmas Card

I got the idea from Craft Warehouses and changed it a little.  I used an image off of Snow Angel cartridge.

Snow Man Christmas Card

The stamp I picked up at my local Craft Wharehouse Store.  Simple but cute.

Stampin Up Christmas Card

 I used an embossing folder on velum and cut out the center with nestabilities.

Embossing Christmas Card

I used a embossing folder for the trees and put snow on them,  A simple card to make.

Cricut Imagine Christmas Card.

I did this card on the Imagine.  I used a glitter pen on the trees and on the slopes.

Ornament Money Card

Just write a note on the back and slip money behind the red card stock.  Slip the card in the sleeve on the right and hang on the Christmas tree.

Gift Card


This card is to put gift card's in.  You can put them in stockings, on top of gifts, in flower arrangements.  Just slip the card behind the white card stock on the right picture.  Just the right size.

Christmas Card 2011

First Card

The stamp set I bought at my local Craft Wharehouse
I used my cricut imagine to do the A2 card.

Christmas Treat Boxes

My husband asked if I could do some treat boxes for him
to hand out.  I love these tree treat boxes.  They
 stand up on their own.  I used my cricut imagine for
 both the paper and the boxes.  All I had to do
 is add a little bling on the tree's.

Thanksgiving Treat Box

I got the idea from stampin up, but I used my cricut imagine machine for the top note shape and the paper on the top (top note).  I also used Fiskar punch for the acorn. I used stampin up embossing folder for the bottom of the acorn.

I used my cricut imagine for this project.  The bats are from a 80 cent punch from my local craft store.  But everything else was from the cricut imagine. I used 5 different cartridges.

I used  glacier glimmer mist around the border and diamond stickles around the witch.  The border looks like sand.  The topper is all one piece of paper. Put it all together on Cricut Craft Room.   I made 50 treat bags.

Mojo Monday 200

I tried a new technique from Stamp TV on my background paper.  I used a texture green paper.
Inked it up with versamark and dumped cooper embossing powder.  Ran it through my cuttlebug with embossing folder.  Lightly sanded the raised areas.  On the coffee cup I used the bleaching technique.  The especially yours I used wood sheets from Stampin' up.  Cut it with my nestabilities.

Paper buttons. I had fun doing this project,
but the picture doesn't do it justice.
The saying on the tab say's "How Old !!!". 
I really need a good camera. 
I think I need to stand on a corner with a sign saying "Help me I need a new camera for craft's.  LOL
I used all scraps of paper so I can't what they are.

Gypsy Dispute

     I am sorry at this time, I can no longer create anything due to the dispute between my Gypsy and Cricut Expression.  The Gypsy went for its monthly updates.  I referred the Gypsy to a new site called Cricut Sync and he came back and said he no longer could work with the Cricut Expression. (I guess he liked the old site Gypsy Sync better).  Well I referred both of them to a mediator (Provocraft).  Well the Gypsy said he was not working with the Cricut Expression anymore and that was final.  Now I have to wait for the new arrival of my new employee Gypsy 2.  Gypsy 1 will be taking a flight to it's mother land (Provocraft).  It is so hard to find good help these days.  I would go and take a long bath to sooth my soul but the gas line decided to take a break too and he won't be back for a couple of days.  And life goes on. Have a great 4th Of July.

Manly Cards

On the quest for father's day cards.
Coming up with ideas are sometimes hard.

Simple is sometimes a good thing.

This one is one of my favorites.

Vinyl Moments

      My Grandson is a big Oregon Duck Fan.  So for his birthday I cut out the Oregon Ducks for him.
He just turned 9.

     The best feeling you can have is when you put a smile on a child's face.

     Since I  was on a roll with the vinyl, I came up with this for my craft's room.

     I did this with my gyspy.  Don't look to close but the Craft is 2 degree's off.  I didn't notice until I already had it on the wall.  But I did go back to my gyspy and fix there in case I decide to do something else with it..  I did cut the two colors together and put it on the wall all at once. 

     These were the first things I did with the vinyl and I loved it.  So easy.

Cricut Cake

This is my first attempt to use the cricut cake machine.  I used Wilton fondant.
The Wilton fondant works great on the cricut machine, but is way to dry for the cake itself.
There is always a learning curve when doing something new.
When cutting the butterflies always make lots of them because they are delicate and will break easy.
You can't see the ribbon too well, but I used my gyspy and welded it together.
I  was making this cake for cricut club to show how the machine works.

Easter Treats

I have used this box many times for my grandson's class.  I just re-invent it for the different season's.
I used a 80 cent punch to punch the flowers out of a pop can.  Pop can metal is really thin.
Used the cricut cartridge to cut the eggs, bunny and grass.
I used embossing folders for all the eggs..
Hope you enjoy it.

Mojo Monday 185

I love this layout.  I am going to use this card in the April exchange at Craft Warehouse.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  On the inside of the card reads "I'm hoppin' you have a Happy Easter".  Just a play
on words there. LOL  I do wish everybody a Happy Easter.

Craft Wharehouse Challenge - April

As you know, you have to use all the papers that Craft Wharehouse
gives you in the Challenge.  Well all the papers are in the candy jar and the lid. 
 I didn't like any of the papers on their own.
I have a clear plastic over the gummy candies. 
Some of the gummy's are glued to the plastic,
and some are glued to the background.
Popped it up to give it 3D look.
It looks so much better in real life. 
I used Cricut cartridge
"Just Because Cards"

Using What You Have-CCCC Challenge #11

I got my inspiration from a Tag we did at Craft Warehouse.
  They used Sizzx Bigz Die "Sewing Room".
 Changing it from a tag to a card.
 I used Forever Young and Tags,Bags Boxes and More for mine.  
Using Making Memories brad buttons on the body part. 
 The yarn was from the dollar store. 
Took it apart and just used the eye lash part of it.

I try to use what I have .  Sometimes it comes out alot better than
 your inspiration did. The tag that I made at Craft Warehouse I gave to
 my granddaughter.  I put a greeting on the
back of the tag.  It came out really cute.
