New Year's Resolution Week #20

This weeks card is one for one of my DS to give to my DH. The card was made using George and Basic Shapes welded to Dad from Beyond Birthdays.
The scrapbook layout was made for my DS 22nd Birthday. I used the card that I made him for the title. I left it open so that he can see what we wrote. The cake was made using Sweet Treats and the balloons are from Tear Drops. Also on the cake I used white flocking and Stickles.

This video is on how to make diecuts using the new mini cartridge Independence Day. It is another very easy cartridge to use.

New Year's Resolution Week #19

Sorry that I forgot to show this weeks progress on my New Years Resolution. The layout was made using Create A Critter and Pooh font. I got the idea for this layout from a card that MPS made. The card was a Mothers Day card for a dear friend. The flower was one of my homemade Prima-like flowers.

How to use your Cricut to cut photos

While organizing my scraproom I found a lot of old templates that I had used in my scrapbooks. I would love to cut pics into different shapes. So I decided to give it a try with my Cricut. I have even tried it with letters. Make sure that you use the jumbo and blackout. Just have fun experimenting.

MPS Challenge (NSD Challenge) and New Years Resolution #18

Challenge #1 "Mother Dear, I Love You So"
This is what I came up with for the challenge. This year my DH wants to send my MIL money because we don't know what she would like. So I made this money card for her. The only part I used the Cricut (Create a Critter) for was the flowers. The paper is by Me & My Big Idea. I also used Dazzling Diamonds by Stampin' Up on the word mother.

Challenge #7 "Hey Dad"
This card was made for my sons 22nd birthday. This one is also a money card. The challenge was to make it masculine. So I did not use ribbon I used all cardstock. The cartridges used were Create a Critter and Beyond Birthdays, the Scallops were cut using MS Border Punch-Cornice.

Challenge #9 "Take Shape"
For this challenge I made a wedding card. The cartridges used were Sweethearts and Wedding. I used my Gypsy to weld the car together. I put Velum in the window. I used Copic markers to color in the people. I used Glossy Accents on the lights and the hanging cans. I also used a embellishment from Miss Elizabeth's for the back of the car.

Challenge #12 "Critterlicious"
This was a easy layout to do and a lot of fun. The cartridges used were Create a Critter and Pooh Font.
