Valentine's Day Treats

Hi everyone,
Happy Valentine's Day! I will be spending most of the day with my kids, taking them to their favorite diner for some burgers and milkshakes. I made them both cards and bought them chocolate bars! My project today is a quick one for Lily's dance team. Super simple, just watch the video to see how it all gets put together.

Owl Be Yours

Hi everyone,

I have a Valentine's project to share today. I have been fighting bronchitis for the past week and I have been putting a ton of stuff up on Youtube to sell - destashing and reorganizing for the tenth time. If any of you are interested you can check it out on my Youtube channel. My project for today is going to be the card I give to my son for Valentine's Day.

I used the Create a Critter cartridge and paper from Bo Bunny. I also have a video for you too!

Panda Card

Hi everyone,
Today's card is a super simple one. I was trying to use up the last of my Christmas scraps. The card reminds me a little of Chinese New Year must be the Panda. It's a little early for Chinese New Year as it's I think February 18. I don't celebrate lunar year but many of my students do! Or maybe it's in celebration of the new Kung Fu Panda movie which my kids were super excited to see.
Here is my card for today:

Birdie Hugs

Hi everyone,
I think this might be my last winter thank you card and most likely the last time that I use Christmas paper until the end of the year. Here is my card for today!

I also have a video for you all too!




I think it came out so cute. I still really like my older cartridges. It would be nice if Provo Craft came out with some new ones similar to their old style.

Disney Days Mini Album

Hi everyone,
Today's project is a mini album that I made as a gift for a friend. The last couple of days of my winter break, I was a little under the weather and was in my pajamas for most of that time but I didn't waste my time. I put together this little album with scraps and my stash!

Here is my project:

I also used a couple of pieces that I was hoarding so that felt good too! No more hoarding because there is always new stuff to buy and discover. Here is my video:

Sledding Boy Cricut Card

Hi everyone,
I am back with another project. Today, I am sharing one of the Thank You cards that I made for my kids to send out for their Christmas presents. This year my 7 year old daughter Lily wrote out all the thank you cards. She was so cute because she would add cute little things to it, like hearts or she would write I miss you or I love You or I can't wait to see you. Super cute. Anyway, here is my card:

Smash Book #1 Finally completed!

Hi everyone,
I finally completed my Smash Book. Of course, I am a year behind but I was able to finish this Smash Book and begin anew with 2015. I have sworn to myself to catch up and so I ordered some more printer ink and paper to start printing pictures. I do think that I am going to see what kind of deals there are in sending them out for printing as I would be faster. Still debating....

Anyhow, here is the video of my finished Smash Book:



If you are interested, here are the links to my other Smash Book updates:

It does feel to complete it. I will probably continue this format as I have a ton of Smash Books that I have purchased on clearance and it is a great way to use up scraps and other ephemera and washi that I don't use in my other crafting.

Happy Birthday Card using the Explore Pen Feature

Hi everyone,
I am trying to post more often in the New Year. My goal is to do at least 2 projects a week so I will see how that goes. I actually worked on my son's school scrapbook this weekend. Or I should say I started it as he is now in 4th grade and it was a little difficult recreating and/or finding pictures but I did the best I could in terms of utilizing pictures from that year.

Today's project was a Pinterest find and so I cannot take credit for it but I was excited to utilize the pen feature in my Cricut Explore. Here is my project:

 
I also have a video for you too:

12 Days of Christmas Mini Album and Decor piece

Hi everyone,

I am sharing my last official Christmas project. I was hoping that I would get it done in time for my 25 Days of Christmas but it just didn't happen. I made a Christmas album from Kathy King aka Paper Phenomenon's house and 6x6 album tutorial. I really have a lot of problems with 3D projects so my house roof is slightly wonky but I covered it up with lots of sparkle ribbon. Be sure to watch the video to see the entire project. It needs two pictures that I am waiting for otherwise it is complete!




The album fits inside the house and I used Graphic 45's 12 Days of Christmas paper pad for this project.


Thanks so much for visiting today.

25 Days of Christmas - Day 25

Hi everyone!
Made it to the last day. I actually have one other Christmas project to share but it's not quite ready to share so I probably will share it around New Year's. In the meantime, my project today is about preserving Christmas cards. Or at least one idea on how you can save them in a cute and crafty way. Excuse the video, some rambling and struggle with bookrings is on display!



I hope that everyone is having or had a wonderful holiday. My holiday continues tomorrow when my kids come home and we can open presents. Today, I am headed to my parents house. My dad will be making breakfast and I will watch my nieces open presents. Then home to clean up. Yikes! My house is a total mess. Thanks so much for visiting me this holiday season!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 24

Hi everyone.

Happy Christmas Eve! I made to Day 24. Thanks for all of you who have left kind comments and came to visit me each day. It's nice to know that I am not just talking to myself! Today I am doing another Minc project. Be sure to watch the video to see the products that I am using and how it gets put together.

My kids leave at noon to go to their Father's. They are very sad because they really want to see their cousin's who they mostly only see once a year. Divorce sucks. I am trying to be positive because I want them to still enjoy their holiday. So I am feeling a bit sad but my Mom makes my absolute hands down favorite dinner tonight so I am looking forward to eating extra carbs tonight.

Here is the video:



Enjoy your day and see you tomorrow!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 23

Hi everyone,
Welcome to Day 23 of my 25 Days of Christmas. Today, I am sharing a minc project that also uses some other products in my stash. The idea is to move beyond the one layer cards with minc and use it as more of a coloring element. Be sure to watch the video to see all the products that I use and how it gets put together.

25 Days of Christmas - Day 22

Hi everyone,
Welcome to the 25 Days of Christmas - Day 22. Yesterday, we went to Knotts Berry Farm but we had to leave early because my son wasn't feeling well. He kind of has a weak stomach anyway and doesn't do really well with too many twists and turns. The little one though is a gamer and I felt bad taking her home early. Luckily, my sister and her husband went back later with their kids and took her back and she came home so happy. She told me she went on "Somebody's Revenge" (Montezuma's Revenge) and had some "Poisonberry Punch" (Boysenberry Punch) and it was delicious. Hah! Today, we are supposed to go do an outdoor activity but it's raining as I am writing this so I have no idea what we are going to do.

Today's project is felt ornaments. I used Memory Box Snowman dies for this and was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. She has a great video on her blog.



I hope that you visit me again, I really like the next two day's projects and can't wait to share them.
