Penguin goodie bags

I made a few penguin bags and baked some goodies for my daughter's besties to give as
Christmas gifts. They were a hit and fun and easy to make.

All the cuts were from Create a Critter 2. I flocked the white parts of the hats and
stickled the snowflakes. I added rhinestones for falling the snow. 
Happy crafting and hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Ladybug Birthday Card

I used the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge to make this little ladybug card for my little cousin's 3rd birthday. I was in a hurry and had to think fast. I used the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for the actual card and cut it fit to page which was 5". I also made the matching envelope which was fun. I used the  "font" cut out on the ladybug page that had the circle with the 2 holes in it to slide the ribbon  at 4" and another layer at 4 1/4". The ladybug was cut at 3".  Inside I used the sentiment cut "Happy Birthday Little Lady" which was so cute. I stickled some pink glitter around the edges and had my card. It was the perfect size to put a gift card in.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Pilgrim Dog & Cat cupcake tags

I used my Cricut to make Pilgrim Dog & Cat cupcake tags for a harvest themed open house community affair at my husbands veterinary clinic. I love to bake and this is the first time I actually had time to do a little bit extra in the presentation.

I used the Cricut Animal Kingdom cartridge for the cat and dog faces with the blackout layer feature (3.5"). I made the pilgrim hats from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The hat was plain so I used the belt and turned it upside down to look like the buckle strap on a pilgrim hat.(cat 2.5", dog 2.75") The tags were larger than I imagined (2.75")but I really wanted to use my Peachy Keen cat face stamp from the animal faces set and I bought them in size medium. So I had to make the faces fit the stamp. The scalloped squares are from Elegant Edges and were 2.75". That is one of my most used cartridges for layering. I just love it.

Thanks for stopping by and I have a blessed day!

Doggie Birthday Card

I made a Z-fold birthday card using Four Legged Friends and Elegant Edges cartridges. The paper is from DCWV. I used the flower embossing folder that came with my cuttlebug. I punched a circle and used a metallic brad for the dog tag that holds the card closed. I also used brads for doggies eyes.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day :)

Cricut Sweet Treats

I made a couple cupcake cards using the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge. I was blogging and I came across this idea and just had to scraplift it! I love using the color brown with the blue and pink. I used the swiss dots cuttlebug, and glossy accents to highlight the chips and swirls. I use DCWV glitter cards and some ribbon from the $1 section at Michaels. Please visit for some excellent card ideas. She is so talented and has made some awesome things with the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Baby Shower New Arrival

I made a couple baby cards this weekend for friends that
just had babies! One friend had a girl and one had a boy so I made one in
pink and one in blue. I used the Cricut New Arrival and Elegant Edges cartridges
 for the cuts. I cut with my Cuttlebug Welcome Baby die for the title cutouts,
 and used swiss dots for texture on the strollers.
I put brads and bling on the wheels to dress it up a bit.
I got out my Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kid face stamps
and used my white gel marker and glossy accents in the eyes.
 I accidentally smudged ink on the corner of my girl card
so I stuck that flower there to cover it up. (oops)

I hope you like them and thanks for visiting! Have a great day:)

Cricut Hoot 'n' Holler Owl Cards

Here are some cards I made with a few of the Cricut Hoot 'n' Holler owls I made a couple weeks ago.

In the 1st card I used an EK Success punch for the word bubble, My Pink Stamper stamps for the sentiments, and stickles to make my owl sparkley. The 2nd card I used an EK Success border punch, My Pink Stamper stamp for the sentiment and both the butterfly and branch are from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. I also used Stickles and Glossy Accents.
I then made a Halloween Owl card. I used the Happy Hauntings cartridge for the cute little witch hat, the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic for the owl, Elegant Edges for the medallion and My Pink Stamper and Inkadinkado for the Sentiment.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Penguin Composition Book

I decorated this composition book for my daughter who just started 7th grade and is into penguins.

I cut the penguins from Cricut Create a Critter and Joyful Holidays. The Just Chillin is also from Create a Critter. I used my cuttlebug to give texture to the snow and stickled the words, scarf and umbrella. I got the idea from Divine Domesticity's blog and she gives ideas for measurements:

Thanks for looking !

Chihuahua sympathy card

I made this card for my in-laws after they lost their little old friend Diablo. He was such a sweet little dog and I tried to capture his looks in this card.

Train card

Here is a train card I made for my husband for his birthday. He collects Lionel trains
and  I thought this would be the perfect die cut.

I used my Cricut Heritage cartridge for the black and gold train, nameplate and the lamp posts. I used the Elegant Edges  cartridge for the shaped background. I cut it in half to use on the front of the gatefold card I made with tan cardstock.

Froggy Card- Create a Critter

I made this card for someone who loves froggies. I used the cuttlebug to give the lily pad some texture and used some prima flowers. I used glossy accents in the eyes and added the dragonfly button for dimension.  I love the ribbon I found in the dollar bin at Michaels, the colors were my inspiration.

Mom's 75th Surprise Party Invitations

We had a 75th birthday surprise party for my mom. She was clueless. It went off without a hitch. The theme was black and white and pink. For the invites I used the pun "Don't let the cat out of the bag".

I used the Kitty from Cindy Loo and like how she turned out. She reminds me of the kitty from Pepe Le Pew. The envelope was made from Tags Bags and Boxes and More.
