Let's Getaway

Hi everyone,

Today I made a card that represents my sadness that summer is really over! No time for getaways because its activities and homework and getting to bed early! No time for getaway fun!

I used the Summer Vacation Cricut cartridge. I don't use this very often because I have to cut multiple times to get layers and then cut and piece to get a layered look and sometime I am just too lazy to do it! However, this is still a fun cartridge for summer projects.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

PDE Linky Party #19 Stitching

Hi everyone,
It's another challenge over at Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party!




Here is my project:

I used an SVG from SVG Cutting Files. It's Sandy and Danny from one of my favorite movies. I just used some stitching around the edge of the card, very subtle. I hope that you all visit the Linky Party and see what the rest of the DT did and join in the challenge.

Cherry Much!

Hi everyone,
In my quest to finish up paper pads. I have had to be creative in making useful cards that use up my paper!
My paper is from Carta Bella and my cherries are from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge and my sentiment is from CardzTv. I love how it comes out. I normally use black for my shadow on these cuts but I love the white, I think that it makes it pop!

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Tea-riffic

Hi everyone,

Today, I am sharing a card that is a bit of a fail. I made an attempt at a shaker card and it turned out so so.

The cut is from Animal Antics. I think my problem is the paper I used kind of muddled up the cut. Anyhow, they all can't be winners!

Thanks for checking me out today.

Spider-man, Spider-man

Hi everyone,
I have an unusual project today an SVG using my Silhouette!
The SVG is from Pretty Paper and Pretty Ribbons. This particular SVG was very easy to put together and I used scraps from a My Mind's Eye paper pad that I have since "killed." This is a quick one today. My life has gotten so busy with work and the kids start school next week!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Paint Pink

Hi everyone,

I had originally intended for this card to be for an upcoming FCCB challenge but I ended up not liking it very much. I also have a video for you so be sure to watch to get the recipe.



The inspiration for the card was the flamingo paper and I had to use a tag but this is just blah. Oh well sometimes its good to share the missteps to let you all know that it's ok when you make something you don't love!

Erin Condren Planner

Hi everyone,

I am starting a new feature on my blog called "Subscription Box Sunday." Now I might fudge some of the posts here and they may not all be technically subscription boxes but lifestyle things that we might all be interested because woman cannot live on crafting alone!

The box I am opening today is not a subscription box but a planner. I have found that many crafters have the need to schedule, organize and make lists in their blood! I have always been a list maker and as my life became busy with kids and home and work, I have always had a planner. The Erin Condren planner is all over Youtube and I broke down and bought one. I have a video that gives my opinion so far on this planner. If you have one, I would love to hear what you think.





If you are interested you can use my referral link below and create an account. You will then get a $10.00 coupon good for your next order.

Adore

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a project that I made for the Sa Crafters July challenge. Sa is not doing challenges any more this was the last one. The challenge was to use a certain bike from her store. If you haven't visited Sa's store you should (I am not affiliated in any way), she has tons of wood and chipboard embellishments and albums, frames, stencils and more. I have a ton of her products and just need more hours in the day to work on them!

The sentiments and the windows are also from Sa's store. I painted it yellow with Martha Stewart pain that I had in my stash and all of the flowers were from my stash as well. The picture is a favorite from the 4th of July. My Tyler with my sister and her sweet baby.

Thanks so much for looking today.
