Happy Birthday Card using Forever Young Cartridge

Here is the video for the Bee Happy Card. Hope you guys like it!

My first video ever! We all love our Cricut machines so they deserve to be protected. I made this simple dust cover. It took me about 45 minutes to do. I used 1/2 yard I bought from Joan’s (under their scraps piles).

Hope you like it!

TGIS (Thank God is Saturday) After all the chores I decided to relax and do a card for http://www.mypinkstamper.com/ Father’s Day Challenge. The challenge was to use brown, yellow and green colors on the card. Here is mine


I used the Potpourri Cartridge for the fishing
rod on page 55. I cut it at 1 1/2″.

The boat came from Stand and Salute cartridge on page 58. Cut at 2″. I used the cuttlebug to give it texture.

The brads are from Making Memories and the water sticker came from Me and My Big Ideas.

The “Dad is Gone Fishing” sign was cut at 1 1/2 inches (shadow) and 1″ for the salmon sign. I also used the cuttlebug to give texture to the sign.
Note the plaid paper is actually a dark yellow but it seems to show up brownish in the picture. The boat is brown and the fishing rod is green.

Today I did a smaller project. I used my Stand and Salute cartridge cutting the triangle banner at 6 1/2″ Fit to length button (using 9 x 11 1/2 paper).  I used the Storybook cartridge to cut out my letters and shadows at 4 1/2″. I used Sparkles cotton candy pink paint to draw a border around the triangles. I used a flower stamp using green ink. I connected all the triangles but punching holes on each top side of the triangle and weaving in the string.
