Fun Announcement - I Am a Designer for Flaunt it Fridays

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the week and getting ready to ring in 2011.  I'm so excited to announce that I was just selected to be on the Design Team for Flaunt it Fridays!  If you have not had a chance to check out the blog, FIF is a weekly challenge blog where you are asked to create a project using a selected cut from a particular Cricut cartridge.  You can still play along even if you don't have that week's cartridge, all we ask is that you find a similar cut using what you have.  Our first blog hop will be on January 7 and I'll be participating with a little blog candy for all of you.

This week's FIF challenge is to use the turtle from Create-a-Critter and make a project that isn't a card.  I have been working on a Christmas-themed paper bag mini album this week, and I incorporated the turtle into one of the pages.  When I have more time, I'll show you all the finished project.

Dance Card

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I was able to spend a great weekend with my family. Since I'm on vacation this week, I've been using the time as an opportunity to play around with my Gypsy and Cricut. I've had the idea for this card in my head for a while, but haven't had a change to pull out my paper and create it. I love this postage shaped image from B is for Boy and have wanted to use it as a card base for some time. The little girl on the card is from Twinkle Toes Cricut Lite cartridge.  This is my first time using Twinkle Toes for a project; the are some great images and they layer very easily.  It could become a new favorite.
Card Base: American Crafts textured lavender paper 12.81" (single image 7.5").
First Layer: Pattern paper from K&Company (Berry Sweet)  rectangle from Plantin Schoolbook cut at 4".
Girl from Twinkle Toes cartridge cut at 4".
Tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cut at 1.25" with Kraft Cardstock from Recollections (Michaels).  Stamp: Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Stamps Family & Friends set.

Good Hair - Congratulations Card

I met my friend Eric about seven years ago when I moved to Atlanta from Law School; he was my hairdresser's assistant. Since our initial meeting we have become good friends, so I was so excited for him when he finally enrolled in Beauty School last fall to formally begin the process of becoming a licensed stylist. He graduated from school last month and today he was kind enough to squeeze me in for a last minute hair appointment before Christmas. I whipped up this card last night and took it with me when I headed over to the new salon he's working at. The blow dryer image from the Paisley cartridge couldn't have been more perfect. Eric loved the card and set it on his booth. More importantly, my hair is looking great as I head into the weekend!

Card Base: Kraft Cardstock (Michaels' Recollections) cut at 5" x 5".
First Layer: Pattern paper from K&Company (Berry Sweet) cut at 4.75" x 4.75".
Second Layer: Pattern paper from K&Company (Berry Sweet) cut at 4.5" x. 4.5".

My Pink Stamper Challenge

This week, Robyn, at My Pink Stamper, has been doing a 12 days of Christmas countdown. Today's challenge is to make a Christmas card or layout. I used my new Jolly Holidays cartridge and threw a quick 4x4 card together using one of the Santa cuts. I think it turned out well. And of course, when in doubt, just add glitter.

Flaunt It Fridays Challenge

Flaunt it Fridays is a new challenge blog which is all about using your Cricut cartridges to their fullest extent and "flaunting" what you can create. This week's challenge is to use the cup with lemon cut from Simply Charmed. I don't have that cartridge so I used the lime cuts from Cherry Limeade cartridge. This card came together really quickly and I just love how it turned out. I cut the cup at 4 inches and the lemon at 1 1/2 inches. I used a Peachy Keen stamp for the cute face.

Santa Christmas Card

Like many on Black Friday, I trudged out of bed in early hours to pick up the some of the new Cricut Lite cartridges from Walmart and hit the sales and Joann's and Michaels. I was able to snag Jolly Holidays and Twinkle Toes from Walmart and Winter Frolic at Joann's. I made this Christmas card using one of the Santa cut on the Winter Frolic cartridge. It's super cute, but there are a ton of little pieces that go into making this image. To add a little extra pizazz, I used stickles on the hat and suit.

Thank You Card

I made this card for a friend of mine who is planning on introducing the concept of thank you cards to her 3 1/2 year old son this Christmas. The idea for the card came from a layout I made toward the end of summer. I modified it ever so slightly by changing the background paper and adding a paper doll that looks kind of like my friend's son. I love it!

Card base: American Crafts Black A2 card - 4 x 5 1/2
Background paper: K&Company - 3 3/8 x 5 1/4
Grass: Bazzill Swiss Dots Paper & Martha Stewart Punch - 1 1/2 x 5 1/4. The grass is colored with green chalk.
Sun: Cut at 1 1/2 inches (Doodlecharms)
Car: Cut at 3 inches (B is for Boy)
Paper Doll: Cut at 2 inches (Everday Paper Dolls)
Sentiment - My Pink Stamper Stamps - Family & Friends
Face Stamps - Peachy Keen Stamps - Everyday Character Face Stamps

Snowman Card with Doodlecharms

Although I would deny it if asked outright, but I have a lot of cartridges that I don't use frequently. I needed a quick card to put together for my cousin who loves gift cards for Christmas. While digging through my cartridges, I ran across Doodlecharms, started flipping through the images manual and came across this snowman. I cut him out with the blackout feature (4 inches) and used my new Peachy Keen Stamps for his face. I pulled some buttons out I had and used them for his belly. The card is really simple, but fun.

Reindeer Card

As I've probably mentioned before, I love the Create-A-Critter cartridge; the images are so versatile and super simple to layer. I have been waiting to use the Reindeer image for some time, so this cut came in very handy for making a set of three cards to go along with three gifts for my friend's kids. I cut the reindeer at 4 in. Red stickles were used on the scarf and Viva Decor glitter liner was used on the hoofs. The patterned paper is from a My Mind's Eye Christmas paper pack and the red cardstock is Bazill. The ribbon is from Michaels. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo.

Scalloped Snowman Christmas Card

The Christmas season is officially in high gear! I spent the majority of the weekend making several Christmas cards to go with gifts for family and friends; as well as, cards for the women in my Bible study group. I made the scalloped cards for the women in my church group and for my first shaped card, I think it turned out well. I used Mini Monogram for the circles and Winter Frolic for the snowman. The scalloped circles were cut at 6 inches and 5 1/2 inches. The blue circle was cut at 5 3/4 inches. The snowman was cut at 3.39 inches. The kraft paper is from Recollections, the colored paper is American Crafts and the scarf and mittens were cut uisng Bazill Dotted Swiss paper. The stamp is Inkadinkadoo.

2010 Christmas Cards - Day II

This card is one that I designed earlier this year for a Christmas Card in July challenge. I used Joys of the Season to cut the Christmas tree. The scalloped circles and holly are cut from Winter Woodland. The kraft colored card stock is from Recollections and the scalloped circles are from a Me & My Big Ideas paper pack. I also used Bo Bunny double dot paper for the Christmas tree. I used my Cuttlebug script folder on the holly leaves to give them a little dimension and also added stickles on the berries and the leaves. The stamp was cut out using an oval punch from Stampin Up. The corners of the card were rounded using a Crop-a-Dile on 1/2 rounder setting.

Card base measures 4.25 x 5.5
Strip of flocked paper was cut at 1.5 x 5.5
Scalloped Circles cut at 3.75 and 3.25
Holly cut at 2.0
Stamp - Stampin Up

2010 Christmas Cards - Day 1

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you all. I used the holiday weekend to make my Christmas cards for this year. In order to keep all of my cards easy to mass produce, I kept the design limited to one main image per card. In order to give the cards some pizzaz, I added flocking and stickles where appropriate. If you have not considered flocking powder for your projects, I would highly recommend it. The flock is super simple to use and just gives your project that little something extra.

The first card is reindeer card made with the Winter Frolic cartridge (a Black Friday purchase). I used red flocking power on the scarf just for a little pop. The pattern paper is Countdown to Christmas from My Mind's Eye. The red cardstock is Bazzil and the white card stock is Georgia Pacific (available at Wal-Mart).


Card Base cuat at 4.25 x 5.5
First Pattern Paper Layer cut at 4 x 5.25
Second Pattern Paper Layer cut at 3.75 x 5
Grass (Martha Stewart Grass Punch) cut at 1.5 x 5
Reindeer cut at 3.75
Martha Stewart Flocking Powder - Ladybug Red
Stamp - Stampin Up!

Note Card Box

The Martha Stewart scorepad has instructions for making a small box from 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper. I made the box months ago, but was never sure exactly what I wanted to do with it. Over the weekend, I decided to make some fall-themed note card using paper from a paper club I belong to. The box is roughly 4x4 and the cards measure 3x3. I used Hoot and Holler to make the owl on the front and mini monograms for the scalloped circle design. The cards were super simple and can be whipped up using one sheet of 12x12 paper for the base card and the various layers. The monogrammed scalloped circles for the cards were made using punches.

Redo Layout # 3 - Barcelona Olympic Stadium

I'm still working through my previous layouts from my trip to Spain and giving them a do-over. I've come to the realization that I can't force myself to make a layout if I'm not feeling that creative. Ultimately, I get frustrated, throw pictures on a page and come up with a less then pretty layout. The first version of the layout consisted of me matting these photos on a page with a very large lantern (which was supposed to symbolize the Olympic torch), and adding the "let the games begin" title. On this redo page, I decided to create the Olympic rings (with my gypsy) and use them as the anchor for the layout. I initially planned to dress up some paper dolls as Olympic athletes to fill in the empty space, but instead I changed my mind and used ribbon and circle punches to make medals for journaling.

Another Amsterdam Layout

I had a hard time figuring out how in the world I was going to scrap the pictures I took in Amsterdam's Red Light District. I mean really, how often are "the women of the night" a known tourist attraction when you go on vacation. At some point, I remembered seeing a fantastic layout over at Amazing Grace of a lingerie bridal shower using the underwear images on Sweethearts cartridges and an apt phrase from the Forever Young cart, so I decided to scraplift it. I think it turned out great, and I keep cracking up when I'm looking at it.

Happy Blogaversary!

One year ago today, I started my little blog and figured that I would be posting pictures of scrapbook layouts and cards I was making just for my own edification. I never dreamed that anyone would follow my site or that I would be introduced to a community of individuals who are amazingly talented and thought I had any talent myself. So on this little anniversary, I just wanted to say thank you those who are taking this blog journey with me and that I look forward to the what the next year brings!

Spain Redo Layout #2 - Plaza Real

I'm continuing to work on my Spain "redo" pages, and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Back in January when I tried to scrap these photos, taken outside of the Spanish royal castle, I was plagued with scrapper's block and figured that I was putting too much pressure on myself to come up with a masterpiece rather than creating a page that captured a moment. So, I simply matted a couple of pictures, cut a small castle on my cricut (from Doodlecharms, I think) and used some Thickers to spell out my title "Royal Palace" (yeah, really original). The end result was horrible, so much so that I couldn't bring myself to take a picture of the "before" because it was so embarassing.

This time around, I chose to use the same pictures, but focus on a different theme. It's rare that I can ever get a picture of my mom and dad together, since my dad is the photographer of the family (seriously, he's really good). So when I had a chance to get a photo of them in Madrid, I took it. I came up with the title "Royal Clarks" because they are the king and queen of our little family. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm never going to be one of those scrapbookers who comes up with really elaborate designs, so I kept with the motto of "keep it simple" and came up with this layout. I also included a slide-out journaling tag behind the picture on the bottom. Thanks for looking and have a great day!


I used Bazzill Swiss Dots paper for the entire layout.
Castle: Once Upon a Princess - cut at 6.29 x 7.76.
Plane: New Arrival - cut at 3.64 x 2.88.
Banner: New Arrival - cut at 8.00 x 4.40.
Clouds: New Arrival - cut at 5.24 x 2.88.
Title: Wild Card font - welded and cut at 2.70 x 2.02 (Royal) and 3.45 x 2.02 (Clarks).

Barcelona Train Layout

Last December my parents and I went to Spain for the holidays. When I came back, I put together some layouts but hated most of what I created. Therefore, I decided a couple of weeks ago that I would revisit some of those creations and try again. This is the first of my "redos." The layout captures the train trip we took between Madrid and Barcelona. The first layout included a set of train tracks and various strips of paper on a white background. The "redo" still incorporates the train tracks, but I was able to use just one design and increase the size using my Gypsy. This time around, I included a train, some hills to mirror the terrain and of course a happy sun. The recipe is below.

Train tracks: Everyday Paper Dolls (11.74 x 4.18 in - on Gypsy)
Hills: Everyday Paper Dolls (10.97 x 2.65 in - on Gypsy)
Train: B is for Boy (3.25 in - on Cricut)
Sun: Create-A-Critter (2 in - on Cricut)

Another Amsterdam Layout

This is a quick layout that I pulled together last night while going through my Amsterdam photos. Marken village was this quaint little tourist village where you can see how wooden shoes are made. I loved the homes throughout the village and the plethora of greenery everywhere.

I use the font on Winter Woodland to make the title on my Gypsy. The house is from the Sweethearts cartridge and was cut at 4 inches. The trees are from Stretch Your Imagination and were cut at 2 inches. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the grass. The dotted papers are Bazzil.

Halloween Card - Spook!

I have to admit that I have been in a cafting funk lately and just have not liked anything that I've made recently. But, I got some new paper in the mail at the start of the month and pulled together this Halloween card. I still like a week later so hopfully my crafting mojo is returning.

You Rock Card

I was playing around with my B is for Boy cartridge last night and decided to work with the rocking horse image. This is a quick card I threw together with paper I have from a mat stack.

B is for Baby - My Creative Time Throwback Challenge

This week, Emma at My Creative Time challenged everyone to an create a card or layout without using their Cricut. Since I got into making cards and more elaborate scrapbook layouts only after getting my Cricut, this proved to be a bit harder as I had to think about what I had on hand and how I could make something cute without my trusty machine to aid me. Anywho, I just bought some fun papers from Michael's and pulled those out along with some ribbon, punches and thickers. Here is my creation, a super simple baby-themed card.

Halloween Card - Monster

This is my last Halloween card for a little while; well, that what I'm telling myself today. I just purchased the Mini Monsters cartridge and have been itching to try out some of the cuts. I loved this little guy and the illusion that he's snaking around in some holes and waiting to pop up and surprise you.

Halloween Card - Giraffe

A girlfriend of mine who lives in Louisiana, sent me a picture of her daughter trying out her giraffe costume. She had the biggest smile ever and I understand that she did not want to take the costume off. Based on her costume, I made this card using Create-A-Critter. I'm hopeful that it will bring a big smile to her face, just like the one in the picture.

More Halloween Cards

I spent the weekend making three Halloween cards for my friend's children. I'll post one each day starting tonight. This first card is for a a friend whose son just loves everything there is about firemen and their trucks. Naturally, he's going to be a fireman for Halloween. So little P, this one's just for you.

This is my entry over at Cardz TV for Mary's Halloween Challenge. If you have been toying with designing a Halloween card or have one that you want to show off, then make sure you enter the contest and show off your stuff!

New Amsterdam Layouts

I don't know if it was the change in the weather or the joy of the 3-day weekend, but I was churning out scrapbook layouts at a pretty good clip over the Labor Day holiday. I've already posted quite a few over the past couple of days, but there were I couple of more I wanted to share. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

The pattern paper is from K&Company. The orange background is Bazzill Swiss Dots and the brown paper is Bazzill as well. The title is cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge. I also included a tag behind the lower left photo. The doodling was drawn using a white Sakura Jelly pen.

The tree is from Create-A-Critter and was cut at 8 1/2 inches. The grass is from Everyday Paper Dolls and cut at 2 1/2 inches; the clouds are from this cartridge as well and are cut at a variety of sizes. The title is cut at 2 inches using the font from All Mixed Up. The doodling was drawn using a white Sakura Jelly pen.

Some Reflections on my Birthday

On a late summer morning 33 years ago in small Texas town, I was lucky enough to come into this world. Over the years I have been blessed to have a fantastic family who has truly loved me unconditionally and friends that have been kind enough to serve as a second family. I know I don't say thank you nearly enough, but I hope today's entry is just a little glimpse into how much I love and appreciate you all. I know that I would not be the woman I am today without you and can't imagine what type of woman I would become if you all were not here to influence my life. Thank you!

Speed Racer

I have been crafting up a storm this weekend, trying to get a handle on my vacation photos. Here is a layout I made very quickly this evening with some of the pictures I had from a great fishing village I visited on my trip. I just love how it turned out, it's simple but so much fun. If you are interested in how I pulled this together, I've listed the "recipe" below the picture. Thanks for visiting!


The background paper is Bazzill Dotted Swiss in blue and green. The blue paper is cut at 11 1/2 in x 11 1/2 in. The green paper is cut at 4 1/2 in x 11 1/2 in.

The car is from the B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge and cut at 5 1/2 in.
The sun is from Doodlecharms and is cut at 3 in. I used Peachy Keen stamps for the face. The eyes were drawn in using a Sakura jelly pen. I used pink chalk for the cheeks.
The road is from Everyday Paper Dolls and is cut at 4 1/2 in. I used scraps of yellow paper for the street lines.
These cuts were made using American Craft textured paper.

The "speed racer" title was made with American Crafts white vinyl stickers.

Back from a Hiatus

It seems like forever since I've been able to do any serious crafting or blogging. Rather than having time to create layouts or cards, I've been on vacation and then busy at work pushing legal documents like nobody's business. I'm getting to the point that I'm beginning to dread seeing 8 1/2 x 11 white printer paper! But the Labor Day weekend has finally arrived and today I was able to leave work early and get some creative time in. Thank goodness, because I was beginning to feel a little rusty.

So last month I went on vacation to Amsterdam and had a fantastic time. I'm really loving touring around Europe and taking in the culture and history of the countries I have been blessed to have been able to visit. Now that I'm back, its time to begin scrapping those photos. The first layout is the "cover" for the album. I love this picture and could not wait until I got home to be able to develop it. There are several "I Amsterdam" signs across the city, but this one was in Museum Park by the Van Gogh museum. The paper is from Sassafras Lass and I got it as a new member of the Club Ruby paper club. I used the Cherry Limeade Cricut Lite cartridge for the scalloped circles. The "journey" saying came from Graphically Speaking.

The second layout turned out better than I could have hoped for. These pictures were taken at the Ice Bar. The concept is a subzero bar where you put on a jacket, hat and gloves to enjoy your sub-temperature drinks. If you are thinking that this sounds very silly and/or cheesy, you would be absolutely correct! The entire experience was a hoot and I laughed from the minute I hit the door until I left! But at least I can say that I came, I went, I laughed. The title was made using the Cherry Limeade cartridge the penguins and igloo were from Create-a-Critter, and the bear was from Joys of the Season.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to have some more designs completed over the weekend.

More from Ireland

One of the highlights from my trip to Dublin took place at the Guinness Storehouse where I met a group of guys from the states who were beginning their two week trip across Ireland. They were so funny and were kind enough to let me spend my last night in Dublin bumming around the city with them. I had been having some trouble figuring out how I was going to scrap the pictures we took as leaving the Storehouse, but earlier today I was at Wal-Mart and picked up two new Cricut Light cartridges - B is for Boy and Cherry Limeade. I love the boat on the B is for Boy cartridge and decided to use it for a travel theme. My trip to Dublin was my first solo vacation ever, and I truly was discovering the city day by day. So I felt that the boat (cut at 5 in.) picked up on that theme nicely. The waves (2 in.), which are made from two different cuts, came from Paper Doll Dress Up and Everyday Paper Dolls. The "discover" is from Graphically Speaking. The journaling tag is a Cute Cuts die cut from Doodlebug Design Inc's Great Getaways. The colors in the layouts are based on this week's challenge at Paper Cutz Challenge which is to create a layout, card or craft project using only red, white, blue, yellow and black.

Baby Card - It's a Jungle Out There!

There must be something in the water because every time I turn around another friend has had a baby. And it seems like everyone is having a boy! I was looking around my paper stash and came across my DCWV Animal Crackers stack. I figured that the jungle theme would be fun for new parents entering the "jungle" of parenthood. The hippo and grass are from Create-A-Critter. The scalloped circle and little circle are Stampin Up and EK Success punches, respectively. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions stamps.

Cricut Cutz Challenge # 35

Over at Cricut Cutz Challenge, this week's challenge is to design a get well card using the colors blue, green, white and black. Earlier this month I purchased the Lacy Labels cartridge, but I haven't had the opportunity to play around with it. I really like the cuts on the cartridge and the tons of options at your fingertips. I used Bo Bunny Double Dot paper for the layering on card in addition to my base stock of black and white card stock. The clear and green embellishments came from Martha Stewart.

Cardz TV: Christmas in July Challenge #4

This is the last week for Mary's Christmas in July card challenges; and I have to admit I'm a little sad because these challenges have forced me to begin thinking about what I plan to make for this year's Christmas cards and now that motivation has come to an end. The final challenge asks us to create a Christmas card that features a Christmas tree. My design was inspired by a place card I saw in this month's Scrapbooks.etc magazine that was a simple "hello" card. I love how this card turned out. I used Joys of the Season for the Christmas Tree and Winter Wonderland for the scalloped circles and the holly leaves. I also ran the holly leaves through my Cuttlebug script folder and added stickles on the berries and leaves. All of the paper came from a Christmas-themed paper stack from Me & My Big Ideas; I picked it up last year at Michael's before the holidays. Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card!

Sweet Treats Card

During the Fourth of July holiday weekend, I picked up the Sweet Treats cartridge on sale at Joann's (got to love those sales!). Although was able to get in some solid crafting hours and make some layouts from my Ireland trip, I never got around to using my new cartridge (isn't that always how it happens). Well tonight while working on my card for the My Creative Time challenge, I decided to play around with my newest purchase. All in all I think it turned out okay. Just in case you were curious, the patterned mushroom paper came from DCWV's Green Stack and the border punch is Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions.

My Creative Time's Throwback Challenge #8

Over at My Creative Time, Emma's challenge for the week is featuring the Celebrations cartridge. Everything on that cartridge screams birthday; however, I be a little jaded since I have a birthday coming up in a month and a half. In any event, what is party without a fab hat. I really like the birthday hat featured on the cartridge so I kept the design clean and easy (I may make that my mantra). So here's my creation. The stamp is from the a My Pink Stamper stamp collections. Thanks so much for coming to visit. Have a great one!

My Creative Time's Throwback Challenge

The theme at Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge is "Your Favorite Holiday" using the Wild Card Cartridge. My favorite card from the cart is the argyle cut. I love Halloween, so I blended that card with the pumpkin that is on the Halloween themed card. I like how it came out.

Christmas Card in July Challenge #3

This week's challenge at Cardz TV is to make a Christmas card using either ribbon, lace or buttons. The very cute Santa is from Paper Doll Dress Up. I kept the design super simple and used the Cuttlebug on Santa's outfit and beard.
