Exploring Cricut - Happy Easter

Happy Monday and it is time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut.   This week our challenge is called "Happy Easter". You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft celebrating Easter.

I will admit mine is not exactly Easter.  I just needed something for spring.  I figured this would work for Easter and go right into spring, if it ever arrives.  Plus I was happy with the way this came out and wanted to leave it out for more than just a week!  ;)  I just received the faces on the flowers they just make me happy!

Paper:  SU and Coredinations
Carts:  Elegant Edges, CAC2 and Paper Dolls
Sentiment:  My Creative Time
Faces:  Peachy Keen
Inking, doodeling, chalking, twine.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Two

Here is another treat that I found on Friday, so of course I had to quick make them.  I found them here.  Are these not just too cute!  I already had my pots in mind to make, but when I saw these I had to make them!  So after a quick trip to Target yesterday I was able to get all my supplies.

Tag Die:  Jaded Blossom
Sentiment:  Jaded Blossom
Ribbon:  SU
Shamrock:  One of the Paperdolls carts (forgot which one. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy Sunday and Happy St. Patrick's Day

Of course I feel like I am 'late' in posting this, but I just finished them this morning.  I would love to be one of those crafters that gets all their treats done before the holiday.  Nope, not me this time.  Teachers are getting theirs one day late.'s the thought that counts, right?  ;)

I used the Pot of Gold Treat Box from SVG cutting files.  The candies inside are rolos and I used the Jaded Blossom Lucky Treats for the stamp along with a 3/4 inch punch and a 1 inch scalloped punch.

Now time to just go deliver them all!  ;)

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday!  Another Wednesday means my daily post for Exploring Cricut

Both of my kids had birthday parties this past weekend.  That means two cards to make!  WOO HOO!  I posted the one I made for my daughter's party (the mermaid bear).  This was was for my son's party.  I tried to get out a cartridge I had not used in a while along with the paper to match.  This is how this card was born.  I have had some of the DCWV boys paper pack for a while with only a few sheets left that just were dying to be used.  Space Paper means I had to find a space ship.  Hence Boys will be Boys.  Nice to use cartridges I have not used in a while.  Didn't go too crazy with this card because it is for a 3 year old boy, but it is on an action wobble! 

Carts:  Wild Card and Boys will be boys
DCWV:  Boy stack
Doodeling and action wobble (you should see that space ship wiggle!  HA!)

Happy Birthday Bird

Happy Monday.  Hope everyone got some crafty time in this weekend.  I did and felt a little mojo coming back!  ;)

Today's card I was determined to use MTC.  SVG Cutting Files has the cutest files and I drool over them all the time, but I have just not gotten used to MTC software yet.  So I watched some videos on youtube and figured out how to finally create a shaped card. And everything lined up and cut nice.  I am finally starting to like my cameo! ;)  My daughter was so excited to bring this in to her student teacher today since her birthday was over the weekend.
