Honey, It's Been Too Long!

It's been WAAAY too long since I've last posted. I went over to a friend's house early last week and took some pictures of DELICIOUS chocolate that we ate (see pic below the project) and left my camera!!! It took me a whole week before we were able to connect to get it back! Here is the first card that I made with the Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge and the coordinating Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Core'dinations Card Stock and sanded for the bees in the background.

And here is a pic of the chocolate that was totally worth losing my camera for a week!

Color for the Craft Room

I made this canvas to hang in my scrapbook room.  I used Summer In Paris Cricut Cartridge on a 12x12 Canvas that I painted with acrylic paints.  I used black glitter on the chandelier and then Mod Podge to seal the whole thing.

Canvas the Neighborhood!

The last couple of days I have been working on canvas.
Acrylic paints
Prima Flowers
Tattered Angels Glimmer

I painted the background and the branch and adorned with flowers colored by Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and brads for centers.

Manly Birthday Greetings

This was a specific card with an inside joke included.  I LOVE how the background turned out.  My mom made this with a Cuttlebug embossing folder with either metallic paper or aluminum foil mounted to cardstock. We used the truck in the Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge and cut off the supports on the truck bed.

Pizza Party

Yesterday Simply Charmed came in the mail and I couldn't wait to play.  I cut out so many pieces, but this is what I have assembled so far.  Now I guess I need to plan a Pizza Party because the invites are too cute! The picure hardly does this justice as the pizza is SO CUTE in person!!

I used the Hide Contour feature on the Gypsy as I didn't want the cute face on the pizza.  I also cut out extra toppings as I can never be satisfied with the standard pizza toppings!!

Hoo's Having a Birthday?

My husband is horrible at remembering dates, so I'm fortunate that his mother and I share the same birthday.  This way he only has to remember two dates to keep out of trouble, September 19th and our anniversary which is the day after his birthday.  We like to keep things simple.  That being said, my mother-in-law's birthday is coming up soon, so I made this 5x7 card.
I used the Cricut Lite Hoot 'n' Holler for all elements on this card.

Destinations Card

I made this card for my mother-in-law after a fun trip to Epcot.  I used the Destinations Cricut Cartridge and the suitcase was made wtih Cricut Summer Vacation.

You're a Hoot! Card

I looked to my recent trip to Nashville and time in the country for the inspiration for this card.  I LOVE the Create a Critter Cartridge!!  I set up entire cut files on my Gypsy with nothing but critters and then I store them until inspiration strikes.  I went to my cache of tiny friends to create this card.

Wood Grain Embossing Folder (Sizzix, Tim Holtz)

I had so much fun creating this card!  Enjoy!
