Challenge- PKS- Radiating Sun & PKS Faces

Somewhere over the rainbow...

I made this card for a Peachy Keen Challenge. The theme was to make something that radiates the warmth of the sun and incorporates your peachy keen stamps.

I made a rainbow cut from Once Upon a Princess and stamped it with a Peachy Keen Stamp face. I used some stickles on the stars to give it some bling. I used an EK punch on one border. I love the way it turned out.

Challenge- Pirate Theme

I made this pirate theme layout for some picture of my daughter at a pirate theme birthday party. Still looking for the pictures...they seem to have disappeared. Weird.

Challenge- MPS 3D for School


I love spoiling my kids teachers with treats and goodies through out the school year. So I decided to make a milk carton with some treats inside for their teachers. I have been wanting to make a milk carton for soooo long. Well, I did it!! Now I'm hooked--LOL!

I used my Imagine and a cartridge called All Wrapped Up. It is the only Cricut cart with a milk carton cut on it.

Here is what the milk carton looks like before (this is a different print though) and as its getting put together.

So sorry for the upside down and sideway pictures, my computer would not let me rotate them for some reason.

Challenge Card- Bling

I am entering this card into the Delightful Sketches challenge. I almost didn't make the deadline. I had about 2 hours to whip up a card. I had some Xmas paper laying around so I went with it. I put some stickles bling and a bell for bling and I think this reindeer is so cute. My background paper also has some glitter bling.

Challenge- Back to School #76, PK Back to School & Creative Inspirations

I am entering this project into three challenges:

  • Fantabulous Cricut- Back to School #76
  • Peachy Keen- Back to School
  • Creative Inspirations- Back to School

I wanted to make a little treat bag for my kids school teachers, so I decided to try a new kind of bag.

FC challenged me to use some ABC letter or 123 numbers. I chose to run with my M&M letters to match my candy inside and used the letter M...and I guess the word "Sweetness" that I stamped counts too, since we are talking about letters and words here.

PK challenged me to incorporate Peachy Keen face stamps, which I love. I chose to use a Winter Face and stamp it next to the hand written note I made on the inside flap that the teacher will see when she opens the package.

I used Plantin to cut out the circles and the letter m. The stamp sentiment is from MPS, Sweetest Cupcakes. The ribbon is from Michaels. The edge punch is a Martha Stewart punch (sorry I forgot to write the name on the punch, so I have no idea what its called now). The bag I used in the inside is from the jewelry department in Michaels and is size Medium in a blue and black box. The mini M&M can be found in your grocery store.
I love how it turned out!

Challenge- Shape Card & Halloween

I am entering this card into two challenges:

  • Shaped Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
  • Delightful Sketches

I cut the card base from Wild Card and two circle layers. I stamped the edge of the card base with a wheat stamp I had from Prima. Doesn't it sing Autumn? I also stamped the word Halloween on top with a MPS stamp. I cut the smallest circle into four parts and used two of each color I cut. I cut a scallop from Mini Monograms (I'm so glad I purchased this cartridge, I turned it down once and later realized I did need such a cartridge). I cut the big pumpkin on my Gypsy from Gypsy Wanderings (I have been finding so many handy things on GW). I was going to add some Stickles on the yellow "light up" face parts, but I ended up liking it plain. I made hand cut grass. I used an EK Pumpkin punch for the line of pumpkins--it's such a cute punch. I also colored through the cutout parts around the edge of the scallop onto the inside of the card with a Copic marker so when the card is closed it doesn't look so plain with the white showing through. Hope this card gets your Halloween juices flowing.

Challenge- Square Sketch

I made this card for the Square Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

This card layout was super quick. I punched the edge of the layer. I cut a pinwheel from Cricut Mother's Day 2010 and added a lollipop stick I purchased from Joann. I had a stamp that say "Fluttering by to say Hi" and I just covered the part up that said Fluttering and hand wrote Blowing.

Challenge- Horizontal Sketch

I created this card for the Horizontal Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I cut the butterflies from Paisley at 2". I stamped a definition stamp over the butterflies and then sprayed them with Shimmer Mist for a sparkly shimmer look. I used Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the MPS sentiment. The flowers were in my stash, they are by Prima.

Challenge- Vertical Sketch

I created this card for the Vertical Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I cut the banners and letters from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge. I had no idea what colors I wanted to use so I ended up just grabbing some scraps from my stash. I added some twine to the banner for some extra color and cuteness. I used some iRocks to "nail" the banner into the card. Thanks for looking, be sure to join my blog and keep in touch. Have a Crafty day!

Challenge Card- My Favorite Little Things

Hi there,

I made this adorable card using Cricut Mini Monograms for the scallops and Winter Frolic for the hot cocoa mug, which I have wanted to make something with since I bought this cartridge last year. I love the colors together, this is one of my favorite color combinations...maybe my fave actually. I used some square iRock bling next to the sentiment. I've been wanting to play with these square shape ones for a while now. I think they look cute. I sparkled up my mug with some Coffee Ice Stickles. The whip cream in the mug was made using a Marvy Snow Marker and my heat gun. I thought the stamp that said "Just Whip It!" was a great match for the cards whip cream. I colored the edge of the card with a Copic marker. Hope you like it.
Have a Crafty day!
P.S. I hope you'll keep coming back to check out my newest projects. Join my site to keep in touch. Bye :)

Challenge Card- A Little Birdie Told Me

Hello, I am entering this card into a challenge.

I picked one piece of paper and let everything else inspire me from there. The sentiment was actually cut from the printed cardstock I used for the base layer of the card. I then cut a 2.5" scallop from Mini Monograms to layer the 2" circle shape sentiment on. The card is 5.5x5.5". The rectangles are 2x3" and layered with 2.25x3.25" rectangles. I actually used a white piece of card stock to make the folded card base (since that is my thickest most sturdiest cardstock on hand) and just colored the edge with a black Copic marker called 100 Black and you'd never know the difference. I stamped the hummingbird on the paper. I also used my Sew Easy tool (for the first time ever, even though I've had it for months-LOL) and did some hand stitching above the bird. By the way, if you don't have any Sew Easy thread you can use embroidery floss with the Sew Easy tool, which works great and only cost $0.20 at Michaels...and I think Joann sells the same brand too. I LOVE the way the stitching turned out. I made some pearl dots on the card with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. There is also a looped edge black ribbon across the card. I'm really digging this card!

Disney Mickey Page Layout

Here is a Disney Page I made this week. I didn't have any mickey print paper, so I cut the circles out of various color papers with my Cricut and glued them on the white paper. So now it looks like a Mickey polka dot pattern paper. I also made the Mickey ears and writing on the blue and green paper using my Cricut and Cricut markers. I used the Mickey and Friends cartridge and Mickey Font. The tags were cut from Plantin and I embellished them with some Mickey buttons. I embossed one of the photo mats with a Mickey Cuttlebug folder.
