Bedtime Stories Mini Album

Hi everyone,
I am back with a fun video. This is an album that I made for my new baby nephew. He is now three weeks old and he is just adorable. My brother thinks he looks less like an alien every day. Ha! I used Prima Bedtime Stories and a tutorial from Kathy over at Paper Phenomenon. There is also a Lily video bomb. She snuck up on my while I was filming so you get a little glimpse of her. Thanks for watching!

It's a boy!

Hi everyone,
It's been awhile but everything has been so busy. I am now back at work so that puts a crimp in my style. At least my crafty style. I also became an Aunt again so that is fun.

Now onto my project for today. I was inspired by my new baby nephew and the fact that I have absolutely no baby boy cards in my stash. I believe the cuts are from the Creative Memories Baby cartridge. Now this cart is not for sale anymore but I believe that it is available in Design Space.
I also have a video for you all. Be sure to watch to get the recipe and see how it all gets put together.




Thanks for visiting me today. Hopefully, I will be able to post a little more regularly!

Congrats Baby Card

Hi everyone, I have a little card that I made using the Zig Watercolor markers. I actually got them in January at the Scrapbook Expo and then did nothing with them. But then bam they are like the newest thing. So I figured that I must pull them out and do something with them. My card today also uses the Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set with this cute elephant. I gave it my brother and his wife as a baby card.

I have the 24 color markers but I discovered that I was missing a few colors for blending and I needed some more subtle shades. My Local scrapbook store actually had these which is awesome since they are sold out most places. So I bought another 12 markers and I found that rounded out the colors. So I think that if you have 36 markers that would be enough to give you all the shades and colors to do what you want.

Thanks for visiting today.

A busy summer

Hi everyone,
I have been such a bad blogger but there has been just so much summer fun and well my kids have been taking up all my time from morning until night. There has been a variety of crafting going on just not as much posting.

First, have you entered my drawing for a fuse? It ends on June 30, the day before my 42nd birthday. You can find information here.

I just got back from a family baby shower for my brother and his wife and I made an album which I think came out great. I will be sharing that hopefully next month as I have a slew of projects to post that I was supposed to post this month.

Today, I am sharing projects inspired by Cricut Design Space's Make it Now projects.
The first was a free cut and it was super easy.
 The second one uses the pen or writing feature on the Explore and was inspired by a Make It Now project. However, it would have cost $4.99 for me to make that project which is weird because I own a ton of cartridges. I refuse to pay that for this card so I found cuts that were similar among the cuts I did own.
I also have a video for you all too. I hope you enjoy it.

MFT Summer School - Day 4

HI everyone,
I have another card for the MFT summer school. Each day last week had a different design lesson. The lesson that I am sharing today is Balance: Line which was Day 4.
So simple but I love how it came out. Be sure to check out my giveaway for the Fuse a couple of posts down.

MFT Summer School Lesson 5

Hi everyone,
This past week I made projects to participate in My Favorite Things Summer School. They had 5 different lessons and so I made a project for each one. Here is my first project for Day 5 which was "white space" even though my "space" is pink and not white I think that it still uses the essence of the lesson.
I just got this stamp and die and I just love her plus she is so fun to color. I also used some stickles to make her a little more glittery. Be sure to visit MFT stamps Blog, there is still time to do the lessons.

Be sure to participate in my giveaway for a Fuse, information can be found on this post.

Make it Now Graduation Card

Hi everyone,
I have a super quick card. Cricut Design Studio has their Make It Now Projects. I made this one for a special Senior of mine who lived with his Grandmother as both of his parents passed away. It was very simple and quick and it used the writing feature which is really a very cool feature. Be sure to watch the video to get the recipe and see how it all gets put together.



I also have started sharing some more on Social Media and will be updating my blog sidebar with links to my social media account as I have time. In the meantime, be sure to visit me on Instagram. My name is cindy.vernon

Give a Hoot

Hi everyone,

Just playing catch up and trying to post some more to my blog. Has anyone else joined the Planner Craze? How about #listersgottalist? Crafting Subscription boxes? That's just a few of the things that have been taking over some of my spare time. This post isn't about that but I will probably be sharing some of my new favorite crafty endeavors and I would love to hear if any of you have discovered any new crafty endeavors too!

Today's post is another teacher thank you card. My kids last day was last Friday so this isn't too late.
It's nothing fancy but I thought that it turned out cute. I also have a short video to share on how I put this card together.

Appreciate You Teacher

Hi everyone,
Well, I have been seriously neglecting my blog but I have been so busy. I was lucky to get someone in to do some work on the house while the kids were still in school and it has just made such a huge difference but they were so slow and used up 3 of my days off and now my Lily has had a fever for 3 days but it looks like her fever broke and maybe tomorrow she will sleep in her own bed!

Anyway, I have a teacher thank you card to share. I made 3 cards with giftcards for each of the kids teachers. Lily has two teachers, they job share.
I used the Create a Friend Cricut cartridge for this and I have a short video showing you the recipe.

Hot Air Thanks

HI everyone,
I have a fun and simple project for you guys. I have been using my Cricut Explore and I love it. The only problem that I have is sometimes knowing what cartridge a certain cut is from because it doesn't tell me as far as I can tell when I use search. Maybe some of you guys have a tip for that.
Here is my project:

Toilet Paper Mini Album

Hi everyone,
I have been so busy lately and I have been in a bit of a crafting funk. Does that happen to anyone else or just me? I did make a ton of shirts for my daughter's dance team and I did a little scrapbook to share. There aren't any pictures in this one because I made it for a swap.
Here is the video.




I only have a couple of weeks left in the school year and then hopefully a little bit more time for crafting. I do have a few projects in the works and will be posting them here on the old blog. Thanks for visiting me!
