It's Cricut Monday

I really am going to try to add a Cricut project every Monday. I have just loved owning my bug. It is such a great tool that I know will grow more valuable in time. I am late posting because my project today is somewhat comprehensive and took a little longer than usual to make.

I made a baby mini album as a gift for a friend's upcoming baby. She is of course having a boy. I thought this would make a cute announcement type mini album. I am going to put his name on the front. Inside is room for photo and I stamped places to fill in date, weight, and length.

Contents: Paper - Paper Studio and Heidi Grace; Ribbon - from my stock the polka dots is American Crafts; Flowers - prima; Bling flower - Paper Studio; Baby Bottle - cut using my Cricut (Doodle Charms Cartridge); Album made with card stock cut with my Cricut using the Design Studio and George Cartridge

I hope she enjoys this as I hope you do to. Thanks for looking!

New Favorite Color Combo

I was looking through my paper and realized that green and orange is one of my favorite color combinations. So, I quickly went to work putting together a needed Happy Birthday card. Simple, yet fun!

Contents: Paper - MME; Ribbon - The Paper Studio; Flower - Paper Studio; Button - from my stock; Stamp - Michael's $1 Stamp; Stamp colored with Copics; Glitter - Sugar Glitter by Doodlebug Designs

As I am typing this, I have realized that another new favorite of mine is glitter. I love to use it in small or unsuspecting ways. Of course, the trick is to always go back and seal your glitter to keep it into place.

Celebrate Friends

I am to the point where I could really use some new/fresh stamps. I have looked and looked. There are so many options, but nothing is sparking me. So, I am on a quest to find something fun and fresh. Any thoughts?

Here is another creation with the rub-ons. I used just the corners here. Much fun!

Contents: Paper - MME; Rub-ons - Cloud 9; Flowers - Prima; Transparency Saying - JoAnn's

Thanks for looking! All comments are always appreciated. :)

Love . . . expressed in Rub-ons

I am blessed to have the most wonderful husband. He is such a romantic. It is so much fun to make love cards. Sadly, these are the cards that sell the least. But, I still have to throw one in every now and then.

Contents: Paper - MME and Paper Sudio; Stamp - Michael's $1 Stamp; Ribbon - generic; Rub-ons - Cloud 9 Design

This is the first time I have ever used rub-ons. I must say that it was a wonderful experience. I get all the hype about them. They were super easy and really added such a cute and sparkly accent to the card. I will definately be dabbling in them more.

This "Happy Anniversary" card turned out so cute. I made it for my in-laws whose anniversary is on the 31st.

I have been very ill throughout December. It has been crazy. However, I do plan to restart my Cricut Monday's and adding more projects.

Enjoy! Thanks for looking!

Basic Cricut Card - George Cartridge

I have really been enjoying my new Cricut. I am hoping to have some time to really get some projects done with it. So far, I have pretty much only done basic things with it. I think it will come with time and patience (and a few more cards).

Card Details: Paper - My Minds Eye and Bazzil; "Thanks" cut with my George Cart; Ribbon - generic

Thanks for looking! I am going to try to post a "Cricut Creation" on every Monday. I'm sure I will miss a few here and there, but that is my goal. :)
