Wink Photostrips

If you are a scrapbooker or love photos, there is a cool new way to print photos through Shutterfly! Under the "prints and posters" section of the store, you can now create photostrips like you would get from a photobooth in the mall. ( The photostrips are created from a new program called Wink and it is super easy to make! This is a cool way to add a little something different to a scrapbook page and kids will love them :)

Father's Day Card

Good Evening! I hope everyone is having a great day! Here is a Father's Day card I made using Everyday Paper Dolls. This is the first time I have used this cartridge. It is a little tedious, but the dolls are great! To use this cartridge you have to start by cutting out the generic body which I did at 3". I then cut the fishing clothing and pole at 3" out of papers from my scrap bag. The dimensions for the layers can be found below. I added some green ribbon to give the card a little shine. Enjoy!


Card: 4.5 x 5.5"
Small green layer: 2.5 x 3.75"
Tan Layer: 3.5 x 4.25"
Large Green Layer: 3.75 x 5"
Person and Clothing: 3"

Quick Thank You Project

Hey Everyone! I plan on doing some scrapbooking today and should have some fun projects to share with all of you soon!

Here is a project that I recently made for the parent helpers in my classroom. I used both of the butterfly images from the Birthday Cakes Cricut cartridge and cut them out at 3". They were super easy to cut and layer! The card itself was 5.5" by 4.25" with a layering rectangle of approx. 5" by 3.75". I used mounting squares to affix the butterflies and packaged them in clear bags which I purchase in the Wilton baking aisles of any craft store. I put 4 cards and envelopes in each package which all had different color themes. I hope you enjoy this project!

Hey Everyone! Welcome to my blog!

I am among so many crafters who love my Cricut! One of the best ways I have found to be inspired is through the crafting blogs. I have decided to share some of my creations with you as well so some of you all may find some inspiration. The greatest thing about scrapbooking and making cards is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. Everyone can be successful! The majority of the projects that I will show will be projects using the Cricut! Whether you are new to crafting or are a pro, I hope that you can find some inspiration :)
