Woodland Christmas

Posted by PicasaToday I had and urge to make a Christmas LO. Yes I know that it is July but I just got the Cricut Imagine Snow Angel cartridge and I couldn't wait to use it. So I made this LO with Snow Angel cartridge. I used all white cardstock for this LO so everything was printed from the Imagine. I used pop dots on some cuts to add some dimension and tore some sparkling white paper that I had for the snow at the bottom. Hope that you like this LO!

Squirt Invitation

Posted by PicasaI Love Squirt from finding Nemo and thought that he would make a cute birthday invitation especially if your birthday is in the summer. So for this invitation I used Best of Pixar,George and Tags bags boxes and more cartridges. I was very simple to make just time consuming putting all of Squirt's  layers together. These invitaions will fit in a 5x7 envelope but of course if you were just handing them to people you could make them bigger which would probably make the layers for Squirt easier. Hope that you like them!

Mom and Dad LO using my IMAGINE

Posted by PicasaI made this LO today to apply for Creative Critterz Imaginations design team call. I am so excited as this is the first time that I have ever done anything like this. I used the Country Carnival cricut imagine cartridge and all white paper.  I did a lot of distressing (sanding) and inking along with glitter and also used Diamond glaze over the glitter and some of the images to give it some shine and also bring out the color a little more. I took some extra photos in hopes that you would be able to see all the detail but not sure if you can. Here is the recipe if anyone is interested:
Background Paper: Coredinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress collection- Brushed Courdory Distressed
White Paper: The Paper Company
Cartridge: Cricut Imagine Country Carnival
Scotch ATG gun
Pop Dots
Glue Pen
Diamond Glaze
Doodlebug Glitter
Stickles: Black Diamond
Distress Ink: Walnut Stain
Sanding Block
White Gel Pen

Thanks for looking have a great day!

Thanks A Melon card

Posted by PicasaI just love this card off The Just Beacuse Cards Cartridge and had to make it after all it is summer and I thought what better card than a card with a watermelon on it during the summer! Now if only the weather here was more like summer so tired of the rain although it does make for good weather to craft in but seriously it is July where is the SUN? So for this card I used Just Beacause Cards and my Best Friends cricut imagine cartridge for the pattern. I just love using my imagine with original cartridges! It is a standard A2 size card. Hope that you like it there is more to come soon!

Cards for my Grandma

Posted by PicasaI made these cards for my Grandma whose birthday is today. I used my cricut iamgine to make these which made them super fast and easy to make. I used Country Carnival for the top card and Better Together for the card on the bottom. Both cards are standard A2 size. Hope everyone enjoys and I will have more to post soon!

Happy Scrappin,

First layouts made using my cricut imagine

Posted by PicasaOk so I am so excited about these layouts because I made them using only my cricut imagine! I have made cards with my imagine but never a layout. The top lay out I was actually inspired to make because on the Best Friend imagine cartridge there is a layout on the bonus feature that you can print and I loved it but I really wanted to be able to layer it and add some dimention which I could not do if I just printed it and there is no option to layer it so I made my own. I think that it turned out really cute although it is not a perfect match to the one on the bonus feature I still love it! All the patterns and art for that page is from the Best Friends cartridge and the Butterflies is from the shapes that are preloaded to the imagine machine.

The next layout I did also using my cricut imagine and I used the JT Art cartridge. I love this cartridge because it is more masculine than most and after printing this paper I have to say that I love it even more. The colors and patterns on this cartridge are just amazing! I doodled around the title to just add that little something to it and make it stand out a little more. Hope you like these layouts!

Latest Creations

Posted by PicasaWow it has been a while since I posted I really need to post more! Things have just been so busy around here with summer and all. Here are a few layouts that I have done the past couple of days. I am hard at work preparing to be part of a group at our local Farmers Market the first wednesday in August. I am so excited to be a part of this group and share my love for scrapping and card making other people. I am hoping to sell my layouts and cards during this event and this is my first time doing this so there is lots of work to be done and that also means that you will see lots of posts from me as I share my creations and experience with this. All of these layouts are 12x12 and for them I used  my cricut expression and the following cartridges: Toy Story, Tinkerbell and friends, Spongebob. I hope that you like what you see and come back often to see what else I have created!

Happy Scrapping,
