I wish I could take credit for this card, but I purchased a kit to make it from my favorite local store, Capture.  I just love how "girlie" it is, and can't wait to send it out in the mail.
Sorry I have been slacking on my creations, I have found posting on facebook is much faster!  I love this die cut I made for my exchange group!  It is amazing what a little bit of embossing and ink can do for a cricut cut.  Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Cub Scouts Card- Campin Critters Cartridge

I was so happy when my neighbor asked me to make a card for their cub scouts group!  The police department did some education for their troop and she wanted to say thanks.  I just love all the little critters on the Campin Critters cartridge- they are so easy to layer and they look great!  I used google images to find the Cub Scout logo and wrote in their pack and den numbers on the logo.  The tags are a perfect way to add a stamped image- and Tim Holtz "knowledge" tag worked perfect to tie the bow on the front with some twine.  Thanks for looking!

Posted by PicasaThis is a new storage rack I purchased on as well.   The baskets are movable and you can space the brackets any way you would like, all three for $75!  The magnetic sheets panels on the right you can purchase at Michaels, they do come with a few of the round magnetic jars to stick on them as well!  I did find I needed to tape a few of them shut, especially if you plan to store things like beads in them, so if it does crash down on you, it doesn't open!  (I learned the hard way!)...  be sure to push all the air you can out of them when you close the lid- that helps a ton- then the lid won't fall off.....  gravity, I tell ya!

I had so much fun making this kitchen towel for my mother in law Kim! She has a cherry themed kitchen so Kate's Kitchen Imagine cart was perfect for this project. Just cut and print on the imagine and then iron on! The towel was purchased in a 4 pack for about $9 at Joann's. Enjoy!

One more imagine card for you!

I can't say I haven't had my fair share of headaches updating this beast of a machine from Provo Craft.  But, all in all it is very very simple to use, and if you are looking for a quick card or two to make, you can make several in 30 minutes.  This card took about 10 minutes to make.  It is from the Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I have yet to manage to get the dreaded "update" to work, so I can't use my original carts- but you can only backfill images with them anyways, so I don't see much need for it yet.  I think when Cricut Craft Room launches I will try again!

First Cricut Imagine Card!

Well, this is a trifold card.  My first!  It took a few times of cutting and folding to get it just right.  Our wonderful nanny Kelley had her tonsils out, so I wanted to make something special for her.  I used a little bit of liquid glass on the whale water spout to make it shine.  Some brads, flowers, and foam tape to complete the card.  The paper is DCWV Green Stack - my favorite!

Introducing Country Life Cartridge...

I think all my friends are "cool chicks" so it will be hard to decide who this card will be sent to.  I will have to narrow it down to one of my "Country" friends.  Oh how I miss those days of riding horses and jumping off those hay bails!  This card was inspired by the cricut magazine.  If you do not subscribe to these- run and do so NOW!  They have so many inspiring projects.  If you want to try one out first, you can order off ebay for about $7 each (plus $4 shipping).  Well worth the money!  The Card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 and the chick is cut at 4 inches. Have fun!  :)

Give a Hoot Cartridge Page

We had so much fun at Yellowstone one summer.  I just had to make a page using some animals, as we saw sooo many!  I thought the owl from Give a Hoot would be a perfect fit.  And the paper pack from DC is my favorite!  I think I should go buy another one!  I used brads for the eyes.  I find this is so much easier than cutting them out!

New Carts for me to explore!

I made this page using Happy Hauntings cartridge and Mini Monsters! I just love these carts!
The fun phrases with the images inside really make the page pop!

Can't wait to use this cartridge!

Thank you to Nadia for posting this card on the cricut boards!  I can't wait to use the new Country Life cartridge!  You have some great talent Nadia!
