Welcome to Monday and a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. This challenge is called "Love Your Pet" You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft of your favorite pet and if you do not have a pet, no problem, just include any animal in your project.
I was going to do a 'pet' but I am constantly teasing one of my DT sisters about her use of Teddy Bear Parade. I have not used it in a while and figured it was time....well my daughter did. ;) She has a birthday party to go to on Saturday. What do 7 year old girls love? Mermaids of course. So she decided this is what we needed to make. So Michelle this one was for you! LOL!
Paper: SU and Coredinations
Carts: Base Camp and Teddy Bear Parade
Face Stamps: PK Teddy Bear and Happy Lashes
Scallop circle and stamp: My creative time with Emma
inking, twine, doodeling

Welcome back for day 3 of my KISS series and my daily post for Exploring Cricut. If you are coming here for my daily post, I am doing a series this week of KISS, Keep It Simple Sistah! I found a very cute and simple sketch on line this weekend (see Monday's post) and made 4 cards using the same sketch.
Today's card was for a friend at work who has been sick and I figured he needed a little pick me up. Again, this was just a very simple card, but I thought she came out pretty cute. She is even on an action wobble!
Come back tomorrow for the last card in my KISS series.
Paper: SU and Stash
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper (was get well wishes but I masked off w in wishes and drew in an f)
Cart: Animal Kingdom (oldie but a goodie)
stitching and gems from my stash
Face Stamp: Peachy Keen

Happy Monday - Hope you got some crafty time in this weekend.
I have been having a very hard time lately with sketches so I was surfing the web that would inspire me. Now I have a 4 and 6 year old who every 5 minutes are calling Mommy for something that is the end of world to them, like they need more juice! ;) Sometimes it is very hard for me to concentrate on something with multiple layers. I found this (http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2013/02/case-this-sketch-challenge-15.html) and made 4 cards out of it. They all came together pretty quick and I was able to get a card in before I heard Mommy between each! ;) The next three will be posted over the next few days. Hope you stop back by.
Again, these were very simple, but I loved the simplicity of them. Hope you do too! ;)
Sentiment: My Pink stamper

Happy Monday! Today is a new challenge at Exploring Cricut called Be My Valentine. You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft celebrating Valentine's Day.
Today I decided to make a pillow box to hold some Valentine Candy. I made it a little bigger than I wanted to, but the receiver should will probably enjoy the extra candy! LOL!

Happy Wednesday. Time for another post for Exploring Cricut. I have a very SIMPLE project today, but thought it could give someone a new idea.
Today I decided to do something different. I have never played with welding bases together and wanted to and see if I could figure it out.
At my daughter's school one of the teachers needed various items for the prize box, including bookmarks. As soon as I read that something clicked and I knew I could make some These are done with her school colors, mascot, and letters of their school. My daughter stole one as soon as she saw them. Of course I let her have one, the one that I accidentally put the G on backwards! ;) Luckily she did not notice.
Paper: Recollections and SU
Carts: Lacy Labels, Base Camp and Life's a Beach
