Another Birthday Card!

We have a lot of people in our family so birthday cards will be popping up frequently.  There are 4 more people this month but I won't always post what I make :)

This card was made with the Cricut Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart.  The card is cut at 5 1/2 inches and the pieces for the merry-go-round image are cut at 3".  The stamp is also from CTMH.  I used a piece of tape to mask one half of the saying so that I could put it on two lines.  Thanks for looking!

A Birthday Card

I have a nephew with a birthday next week so I whipped up this card for him this morning.  Everything was cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I used some Mystic Fire embossing powder and a stamp from Close to My Heart to create the rings effect.  Thanks for looking!

HIMCR #95 - Mother's Day!

I have to admit that this is not my favorite holiday but I was grateful to have the opportunity to make a card for my mother-in-law in advance so maybe it will actually go out to her in time!  My own mother is residing in Heaven right now and I haven't figured out how to send a card to her yet!

I love my Cricut Craft Room.  Not only does it make it easier for me to link and access all my owned cartridges but they also provide free cutting files each month.  Right now there is an assortment of Mother's and Father's Day cards to choose from. I chose this file because it just seemed to fit my mother-in-law's personality.  I used a scrap from my bin to line the front and then used another white layer to line the whole inside to make it easier to write on.  The flowers came from some silk flowers I purchased many moons ago and the brad is Making Memories.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Hiding in My Craft Room for the other amazing inspiration by my fellow teammates and to see what Laurie has for you!  Be sure to link us up with your creations!

HIMCR #94 - Banners!

Its your chance to showcase all the fun banner designs you've been making!  Banners have been a hot design in scrapbooking for a little while now.  Link us up over at Hiding in My Craft Room and show us whatcha got!

I used Pink Paislee Snow Days to complete this layout of a rare snow day here in the desert.  I cut snowflakes at 1" from the Cricut Artiste cartridge to make my banners.

HIMCR #92 - Yellow, Green and Pink!

What a fun spring challenge! I have a few birthdays in April to send cards for so I decided that would be the theme. I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the banner and stamp with a Close to my Heart stamp.  The card is based on a sketch for my local scrapbook group's monthly challenge.  The picture doesn't show it too well but the yellow flower layer is embossed with mystic fire embossing powder and white Stampin Up pigment ink.

Glad you joined me today and I hope you'll head over to Hiding in my Craft Room and link us up with your creations! Carrie (an independent Close to My Heart consultant) has generously donated a prize for this week's winner so don't forget to link us up!

10 Minute Craft Dash #15

Have you ever tried this? It is really fun! Head over to Pretty Pink Posh for the details and to play along.  Here is what I came up with using scraps of Bazzil cardstock and Basic Grey paper, a couple Heidi Swapp chipboard shapes, CTMH ink in Lagoon and a Stampin' Up sentiment.

This took me 8:07! Really fun to see what you can do in less than 10 mins.  I love speedy scrapping!

First week + in February

So my Project Life is a little different than most - I am making layouts instead. I am of course WAY behind but here is the layout for the first week (plus a couple of days) of Feb.
