Soar layout

I got this collage photo made at Walgreens for around 2 bucks. I like that it already comes sized the way I want it and with a border. You can order these through their photo website here. I used Stand and Salute and Straight From the Nest cartridges.

A tisket, a tasket

I am really into making these baskets! They are so easy to put together and so cute! This paper is from the DCWV Flower Shower Glitter stack from JoAnn's. I would post a picture of all the Easter goodies I've made today, but my hubby visits this blog and then he would know what's going in his basket! And we can't have that, sorry.

Easter candy bucket

I put this together today for the front desk girls at my daughter's school. They are always so helpful! I got this cute bucket at Target in the dollar section. There were so many colors, and the bow was already included - how cute is that! Added a 3D glitter bunny made with my Cricut, filled with candy and voila!

A simple Mother's Day card

I made this simple Mother's Day card last night. The inside says "always there for me". I also got a new Martha Stewart edger punch today - can't wait to use it! I've been busy today putting together Easter goodies, more to come!

I made the zipper flower headband last night. They were SO easy. The hard part is finding the zippers! I am going to go out this weekend and look for more - I'm on a cute zipper hunt! And headbands to put them on too :)

I really love the retro look of the Sentimentals cartridge. It has a LOT of fun elements on it, and I especially love the card / envelope features. Lesson learned on this card: I need to lay out the elements on the page before I glue them down! I would have moved "work it" over to the right more. Oh well, details right?

Special day layout

A simple layout using Once Upon a Princess, i love this new cartridge! This was on my daughter's 2nd birthday :)

Sans cricut card #1

I didn't want to break out my Cricut last night because my daughter was sleeping in the next room in her big girl bed, I didn't want to run the risk of waking her up! Just a simple card. I think I'll start a new little set of posts that don't use the Cricut. It helps broaden my own creativity and brings me back to my roots!

This little gem was waiting in my mailbox yesterday. Happy Friday to me!

I made this canvas art with the Easter cartridge for my wall, since I have ZERO Easter decorations up. D-lish is made with Forever Young. I wrapped the canvas (from Hobby Lobby, also on sale this week) in fabric first.
Part of the clearance paper is shown here. While checking out the fabric section at Hobby Lobby, I realized they had fabric that matched. How cute will this be as a baby gift? A onesie with a design on it cut with the Cricut with a card to match!


Part of the fun of scrapbooking (or any craft really) is finding super great deals. I for one am super obsessed with PAPER. I love it: I love stacks, single sheets, the smell and most of all, the variety! I got this bunch of paper waaaaaaay back in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby. They are priced 10 for a $1 which is a STEAL. The manager also told me if I bought a lot of it, he would sell it to me for even cheaper. Not sure what that meant, but maybe later.

I got all these stickers at Target. They are restocking their scrapbook aisle, and these were all 75%. These stickers ranged from $.75 to $1.50. GREAT deals. And they are good stickers, too.

The stamps I found at Big Lots for yes, $.50 a piece! That is a great steal for wood stamps! Gotta love the bargains.

So I asked my daughter what she wanted to make. She told me Ariel. Well people, it wasn't easy. Those stupid EYES! They aren't the best, but after breaking out the tweezers, dropping the tiny pieces on the carpet and trying to glue them, I gave up and settled on this. Not sure I will be using this Dreams Come True cartridge again for a while.

Erin had a little lamb!

Gotta work on these dress up dolls. Couldn't get the dress to line up perfectly, however I do like this cartridge more than I thought I would. This is for a teacher at my daughter's school who is leaving and I am soooooo sad! :( :(

I took a stab at the sock cupcake tonight with the Easter cart. I love this cart, solely for the chocolate bunny with his ear bit off, however I loved the cupcake wrap. I had seen this sock idea on a craft board. Target had knee highs on clearance so I thought eh, why not. These particular socks have citrus fruit on them, so I used DCWV summer stack paper with citrus fruits as well. I used red pipe cleaner for the cherry. I rolled the socks about 10 times before finally settling. I'm kind of indifferent to this project, but this blog is for it all - the good and the bad. So, here is the not amazing, just okay cupcake.

Well, here it is. In all its glory. My first Cricut project. I think we are in love! I've been in the craft room for a good two hours....on a work night....by choice. This card was created with Sentiments. A little back story: I made this for my hubs who cleaned out the office / craft room, helped me set up my Cricut and just overall supports all my creative hobbies, which is a huge feat in and of itself. It was only appropriate he got the first card!

E had to have the E

Long story short: decided I needed the Expression, not the Create for bigger projects. I was able to sell my new Create to a fellow craftie, shipped it to its new home and.....
GOT MY E YESTERDAY! I'm so excited. I cut one thing since I got home so late.
The madness is about to begin....projects (and failures) posted soon!

...to tide me over until my Cricut gets here. Please note I had all of about 15 minutes to throw bdays card together for my mom and dad. You do what you can in a short amount of time, which is usually what I have with a 2.5 year old running around. I never really get more than 30 minutes at a time, but such is life.

The first is a congrats on your achievement card. I clearly need to take a few lessons from My Pink Stamper on how to tie bows, but it's for a man, so I'm going with the knot is more masculine anyway.

Speaking of masculine, I'm having a hard time with guy cards. I might need to turn to google for inspiration. I'm just a pink type of girly girl, so it's a stretch for me.

I may or may not have just bought the Life's a Beach cartridge. I really could not pass up that cute little mermaid.

Peachy Cheap


I love Peachy Cheap! It's like a Woot for crafters. I just bought this set from My Minds Eye for $9.99 this morning! Great deal.

Ice Skates!



Can't wait to scrap these. From a recent family ice skating trip, my 2.5 year old daughter loved it!
