Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #49
Shaped Card Challenge: Use your Cricut to make a shaped card (card must be a shape other than a square/rectangle).

I used sweet treats to make this card for my sons 21st birthday. I had to make this card fun for him.
Oh peek-a-boo!
A sexy girl pops out of his cake, cute right. The girl is from Sweet Sassy Stamps!
I am pretty sure he will get a kick out of this card. I tried to make him laugh. I love you Shelby- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Love you mom!

Crinkle Ribbon

I love this crinkle ribbon! It is wonderful and so fun. You can pick this up over at My Craft Spot by Kimberly Tracy. She has many beautiful colors. Tracy is the spotlight sponsor this Sunday over at Fantabulous Cricut. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy my project. As well as Tracy's ribbon. Mention that Ladybug sent you over.

This project was also showcased at my last workshop. I used the glitter paint in Silver to color the flower. I also used the chunky glitter from Stampin' Up! in the center of the flower. The paper colors I chose were basic black and basic gray. Kind of a monochrome thing going on, with a splash of pink. Well, I hope you enjoy your day. Take care.

Copper Emboss FCCB #48

Challenge #48 Emboss It! Make a project incorporating some type of embossing It could be wet, hand embossing, folder embossing, etc. For my project I did Cricut embossing. Joy's Life has a pretty good tutorial to follow. I used her technique but it wasn't quit bold enough~ so I used a stylus to make the image a little darker.
The background is done using SU-Kindness, and SU-confetti. With Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, and Marina Mist. Then I stamped 'best wishes' to finish it off.
Here is a close up of the flower. I like how this card turned out, I will try some other metals to see if I can get the embossing to show up better. Thanks for stopping by today!

It's your day!

Nothing shouts out spring louder to me than baseball! So I made this card to celebrate the beginning of baseball season, and the beginning of spring. I have noticed that the sun is coming up earlier, and staying out later. It makes me so happy.

The cartridge I used was Sports Mania I used SU paper: White, black, and Pacific Point. The phrase is one I picked up a long time ago. I really like it so I use it often. Here's wishing you a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by.

Mini Milk Cartons

I have been dying to use my mini milk carton die from Stampin' Up!. I came across the pattern for the container online. So... whattta ya know I did it!!
(oh and look at the snow in the background)
It was actually pretty simple, I used a retired Simply Scrappin' set. They come complete with the fancy stickers and themed matching paper. Which makes scrapbooking and crafting easy. Everything coordinates so wonderfully. They just turned out so cute. I hope you enjoy them.

Faux Silk-friend to friend

I was working on a project for my stamp group. I came across this technique from my SU book. So I made this card which I do absolutely adore. However, it is not the project I used. Funny how that works. Anyway I still wanted to share it with you all.
Faux silk is very fun and easy to make. All you do is stamp and color your image on regular cardstock. Then use some plain ol' tissue paper, crumple it up, use a glue stick to rub all over your image, then spread the smoothed out tissue paper over the top. It feels so soft, and looks like silk. Very fun, and easy yet impressive technique. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up! I just added some bling to it with stamps!!! The colors I used, marina mist, old olive, and ruby red. Ok- well thanks for stopping in today. Hope you enjoy your day!

Box full of Love

Hello, Today I would like to share a gift we made for my daughters piano teacher.
I cut the box using tags, boxes and more. I cut it super large on some poster board paper. Then I rolled it in real red with a SU Wheel. The ribbon is real red polka dots. I filled the box with some of the delicious shortbread cookies, dipped in chocolate. I just wanted her piano teacher to know how much we really appreciate her. ~Thanks for stopping by!
