Christmas Card 4

So I saved what I think is the best card for last!! This is a 4.25 x 5.50 inch card. The little window is cut from the FREE cartridge we Gypsy users received from Provocraft. The little Elf is from the Stampendous Snowy Short Stacks Stampset. I stamped it on a white piece of cardstock and then colored it in. I then created a sandwich by placing an ivory color cardstock at the bottom, I adhered my little elf on that placed a piece of vellum paper on top of that and topped it off with the window. Then I just cut around the window to make the rest flush with the window frame. I cut the letters for the word "cold" at 1 inch using the Sesame Street Font Cricut Cartrige. Before I adhered my window and letters I used versamark ink for the snowflakes on the blue layer. Then I finished it up with a white gel pen for the sentiment and rounded the corners with the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. This was my favorite card! Thanks for looking and I hope you ENJOY! Have a GREAT BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!

Christmas Card 3

I can't believe how fast these holidays are coming. Thanksgiving seemed like it took longer to prepare for than how much time I got to spend with all of the family. I guess it was the house hopping we did so we had only a certain amount of time to be with each family but it was still FUN! Anyhow, here is card number 3. It is a 4 x 4 card. The snowman was cut using the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge. I think it came out soooo cute! It was cut at 3.20 inches using my Gypsy. The stamp is from Stampendous Snowy Short Stacks... I hope you Enjoy!

Christmas Card 2

Here is card 2. If I thought the last card was easy, this has to beat that one! All I did was cut out 1 inch circles with my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and I added a small piece of brown cardstock to the back of each circle to make them look like ornaments. I used my versamark pen to draw the string and then embossed it and added some stickels to it. I used my We R Memory Keepers corner chomper to round the corners and a white gel pen to write in the sentiment. The way I wrote it is inspired from Kristina Werner, she makes awesome cards!! Her link is to the right of my blog if you have yet to see her work. .... I hope you enjoy thanks for stopping by...

Thinking of You Masculine Card

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great evening. Now that my kids are asleep I was able to create a "masculine" card. Here I made a 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 card. I embossed the Thinking of You stamp by Hero Arts. The blue strip is cut 1 1/2 inches and the dark red paper was cut at 1/2 inch. The pattern paper is by making memories travel 8x8 pad. I punched out the hearts with Martha Stewarts Heart punch. I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!!!

Another thing I need to catch up on! My husbands military scrapbook. He retired from the army in 2008. Which was before I purchased my cricut, so now that I have one I need to make his book look better. Here is the first page I "upgraded." Very simple but better than the way it was. I hope you enjoy!

It's a Ben 10 Party!

My sons 6th birthday party is coming up in 2 weeks and he wanted a Ben 10 party. So I put my cricut to use with the SCAL software and made some custom invitations. I modified the alien to work with SCAL. Making a whole bunch of the aliens was a bit of a pain but thanks to my cricut being able to multitask I got them done!
