I used my cricut Plantain cartridge for this one. I wanted to add a little something different so I decided to add “movement” to the card. I cut the flowers in page 76 at 1 1/4″ using both the flower and the shadow.

I used my downtown finds for the middle of the flowers. I used tiny “sparkle flowers” I found at the garment district in Downtown Los Angeles. I used the fuzzies you find at Michaels during X-mas for the “stems.” The stems allow the flowers to move.  I taped the stems to both the flowers and the vase. The base is from the Potpourri cartridge found in page 47. It was cut at 2 1/2″.  I used pink card stock for the base of the “vase.” I then cut another vase using this beautiful Japanese paper I found on e-bay. It is for Oragamy (sp?) so I cut it using the lowest speed and the lightest pressure on the Cricut so it would not tear.

The card was made of basic chocolate card stock. The blue background was cut at 7″ tall x 5″ wide. Again I used the Swiss Dots for texture on the Cuttlebug. Finally I added a simple ribbon I bought in Germany last year.

Today is National Scrapbook Day and I am tagging along to mypinkstamper.com challenges. I was up really early (for me) so I can watch and start watching the blog and the challenges. The first challenge was creating a Mother’s day card. Here is my version….

Well we know my mom had 4 kids so I decided to use the Create a Critter cartridge along with the Mother 2010 cartridge for this card. I also used my cuttlebug. The card is 5 1/2″ x 8″. The monkeys were cut at 2 1/4″, Mama was cut at 2″. I used the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV for the pink leaves back ground. I used basic pink, lime, hot pink, black, beige, brown and green card stock from Recollecitions (sold at Michaels).

A closer look at the “monkeys”

Decided to make this special card for a very special person. She is expecting and I thought this would be a nice card.

I used the “New Arrival” Cricut Cartridge to create the card. I also used the cuttlebug “swirls” to give texture to the background.

I used the Animal Crackers Stack for the glittery green “ribbon”.

I also used the Storybook cartridge to cut the stork’s back drop. I used the scallop on page 40 and cut it at 2 1/2″ The stork was cut at 2″. The rattles were cut at 1 1/4″ inches.

Giraffe Card

It is early, just before 8 a.m. and 2 nights ago my daughter decided she wanted us to make a card for her best friend. It gave me an excuse to use my “Create a Critter” new cartridge so we came up with this cute giraffe card. The two giraffes were made using basic card stock from Michael’s and patterned paper from the Big Stack and Martha Stewart. They were cut at 3 1/2″ inches.

Welcome to my blog. I am new to this so bear with me.

I love to make cards and I am trying to go back to my favorite hobby.. scrapbooking!

I am a busy mom with a full time job and sometimes I work long hours giving me little time to relax.

I love my Cricut machine and I just bought the Cuttlebug!

Looking forwards to more creations.
