My First Forever Young Project

I absolutely love this cartridge!! It feels more "grown up" than the paper doll cartridges and my darling SIL has a birthday coming up, so I thought I better try this cartridge out. The purses are super cute and I love the models.
I made the purse to hold two colors of nail polish... They fit perfectly!! The card was just fun to make, and I of course had to glitter!!
Thanks for visiting!!

I was watching a video on My Pink Stamper's blog and I couldn't wait to try these out! I had just bought my ATG 714 and was itching for a project. I even broke down and bought two sets of Peachy Keen stamps to help make these as cute as can be!

Thanks for visiting!!

Cricut Cards

My darling Mother in Law has a friend who just bought a Cricut Expression. She was wondering if I could come up with a few projects to showcase everything the Cricut could do. I was more than happy to do that! I have to admit that I have been using my Cricut with Design Studio since I got my Cricut, so I tried to use it just bare bones and it actually is more amazing than I thought! My MIL's friend is a scrapbooker, so I decided to do a card or two, with a cupcake holder because well, those are the cutest things ever! She was so happy with her "class" and I'm certain she is using her Cricut more and more each day.

I love the button flowers from Walk in my Garden. I wasn't too tickled with how my card turned out, but the idea was cute anyway!!

This is from Sweet Treats. I love that cartridge! This did have a matching cupcake holder, but sadly my 6 month old decided to "help" me bring it home and she ripped the handle off. I will make more though, I'm sure of it!! No more babies helping though... :)

This was my favorite card of the set. I love that butterfly from Indie Art. My SIL helped me fix my glittering job. I am fairly new to the world of Stickles, but after this, I will be glittering up everything!

Thanks so much for visiting and slowly but surely, I am getting my craft time back from having a baby!! I appreciate you checking out my work!!

My Husband's Valentine

I wanted to make a card for my hubby who supports me in all my nonsense. He truly is the sweetest guy and I'm so glad I have him to share my life with. He's really the "man's man" and knowing this, I had to do something non-cutsie. That was really hard for me! But, I love my Indie Art cartridge, and I thought surely there was something I could use. I'm a sucker for flames, so it only seemed appropriate to put some on his card. Thanks for visiting!!
