So, I was talking with my good friend Cheryll one day and we got on the subject of popsicle cards. I ended up with quite an addiction to these little guys and found a cricut way to do them using design studio, accent essentials, and george and basic shapes. They are becoming my standard thank yous! Also, Cheryll sent me a ton of skittles in the mail which I think look very cute as grapes so I ended up on quite the grape trip. These were all sent to different friends and family gifts as thank yous for my birthday. Enjoy!

Here is a layout my mom and I finished recently. My dad had picked up the video camera when I was young and videotaped me cheerleading and dancing and just being silly all the way around. We pulled some of the stills and made this layout, which will be going in a Tinkerbell book. We got the idea for this from the page we cut up to get a lot of the words. It is kind of hard to see but the tag letters are white glitter cardstock. They are also the only Cricut I used on this project. In Design Studio, I took the tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More and then enclosed the letters from Cuttin' Up. Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment and enjoy!! TFL!!!

So here is a card I made for my boyfriend's mother for Mother's Day. From what I hear, she is a watermelon fanatic, so I tried to stick with that theme and purses just because they are funa nd feminine which I don't get the sense she gets to emphasize a whole lot living on a farm and only having sons. I got this idea from the Ultimate Crafter Companion's project DVD which included a purse card but I have altered it quite a bit from that. This is a first for me in several ways, it is my first shaped card, my first card with a three dimensional/foldout element, my first time using my Ultimate Crafter's Companion (which I really enjoyed using and cannot wait to use to make an envelope), my first time using ribbon to hold a project together, and my first time using this paper on anything and really liking the results (when I first started scrapbooking I bought this paper pack and have not really used it much since). I stayed up all night making this in hopes it might get there on time, sadly that is far from a first for me ;). I made it using the UCC, Stretch Your Imagination with the shape edited on design studio, and Cuttin' Up. Thanks for looking, would love to hear what you think of it!

In some ways I have been waiting years to make this layout. My mom and I made this layout together as we do with most of them and I literally made her not scrapbook this pictures until we got the cartridge. She wasn't happy with me at the time but I am so glad we waited, it was totally worth it! These are the first Disney characters we cut from the Cricut and pieced together, I worked mostly on the fairy godmother and the coach. and her on Gus and Jaq. I am so proud of her because she thought she would be able to do them and I think they look fabulous. I was also to get the vellum to print in the outline of the coach from the Cricut which was cool for me as well. The letters are popped but I can never seem to capture that in the pictures. Anyways, I am very happy with the way it turned out and had a great time using all of that glittery cardstock!! I am loving the DCWV pack with all of the glitter sheets, we want to add glitter to everything now. Cartridges used George and Basic Shapes and Happily Ever After. Thanks so much for looking, would love to hear what you think! The pictures are much clearer if you click on them, that blows them up, I don't know how to make the pictures look as great as everyone else's, I think it is because I only have an old camera ;)

In an odd coincidence, I was actually working on a scrapbooking layout with just the specifications for this challenge when it was thrown out. The challenge was to have flowers and any 3D elements. This is me in second grade when I made my first communion, and yes, I am that far behind in my life that I am only scrapbooking second grade ;). I appreciated this challenge because it made me think about extra things to make the page prettier. It is a bit difficult to see but there are rhinestones and the big picture of me is also elevated with foam. Here is what I used: DCWV cardstock from Taj Mahal for the background, a print from a cathedral calendar for the church background, the frame parts are from Storybook, and letters are from Lyrical Letters. Thanks for looking!!

Ok, here comes number two, anyone that knows my mom and I please keep this hush hush, she does not know about it yet. The challenge this time was Neopolitan ice cream colors of pink, brown, and cream. I took this challenge pretty seriously and decided to make it a Mother's Day gift. I edited some old pictures that I scanned into the computer, took out the backgrounds and ther cracks, and recolored all of the pictures for this wordbook. This is my very first wordbook so it took me forever, I feel like I have been working on this project for months, but I think a lot of that has been trying to do it all in hiding ;). For my friends who may not know, if you want to see closer, you can cllick on the pictures. Crafting information about this one: I used Design Studio to make the book with Alphalicious and George and Basic Shapes. On the inside, the font is Alphalicious too and the frames are from Storybook but some are slightly edited as well. Thanks for looking!!

So I am a bit late posting this but this is the first challenge thrown out by Jason of the SSPT! It was to use primarily pink, the word "sweet," and some sweets. Well, I was out of town for this challenge and having a hard time. I was literally going to make my boyfriend Lee a card he knew about because the only idea I had was for you sweet + heart. Luckily, I got an e-mail about Cheryll's birthday and this idea came to me. I am new to blogging so not so sure what to talk about but for any fellow crafter that might be reading, I used Mickey font for the 4. I believe I used Celebrations cartridge for the party hat and gift. Thanks for looking ;).
