Who's Your Paddy?

Hello Everyone!  I seem to be in a challenge mood this weekend :)  Here is a card that I made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge this week.  The challenge is to make a St. Patrick's Day card with no shamrocks.  I tried out the new Spring Holiday Cards cart.  I thought my dad will find this card humorous!!  It is a little hard to see because I kept getting a glare, but it says "Who's Your Paddy?"  Enjoy!

Kick up your Heels

Here is a birthday card I made for a friend.  I used the Formal Occasions Cricut cart, i-rock, and cuttlebug!  I am entering this into the Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week which is to use embossing on your project.  Have a great day!


Gift Card Holder

Here is my submission to the weekly Cricut Circle Challenge.  The challenge this week was to make something with a fairytale person (princess, gnome, etc.) on it and use at least 2 cuts.  I made a cute gift card holder from the Best Friends Imagine Cartridge and added a princess.  The purse is cut at 10.5" and is the perfect size to fit a gift card inside!  Enjoy!

Cricut Everyday Box

Hello Everyone!  I was so excited to have a snow craft day today!!!!  My first project of the day was to make something for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge.  The challenge was to make something with the Cricut Everyday cartridge, use 3 cuts, and make it something that would be used to define yourself at meet-ups or crops

I have not been able to go to any of the meet-ups due to costs yet, but I really hope that one day I will be able to attend one.  So I decide to recycle my box that the cartridge was sent in and make a storage for calling cards or other items that I may collect at a meet-up one day :)  I really like how it turned out!  Enjoy!

Celebration Banner

Woohoo!  I finally completed a banner :)  I have wanted to make one for quite awhile now, but I have been put off by the amount of work they seem to take.  I am now here to say, that they actually are not that bad to make.  Hope you enjoy!

My Four Legged Friend

This weeks Cricut Cricle challenge is to make something for or related to pets.  I have a little dog named Coco Sparkie.

I have so many pictures of her in those cheap plastic frames that you can buy, and I decided for my project I would decorate one of them.  I used the Cricut Lite Four Legged Friends cartridge.  It is very simple, but it adds a nice touch!  Enjoy!


Think Spring!

Hello crafting friends!  Are you ready for spring yet!?!  I certainly am, but we are suppose to get more snow tomorrow :(  So today I decided to participate in some challenges to help me think of spring.  I am entering this tag into Thowback Thursday (use Walk in my Garden/ flowers) and Fantabulous Cricut (weather forecast). 

I was also really excited because I got to try out the petal roller tool by Imaginisce on my flowers :)  If you have not seen this tool it is awesome!  I am looking forward to making more flowers tomorrow with their flower kits!!!  Enjoy!
