I wish I had my own Scrapbook Store!!! I wish I could teach Scrapbooking and Cardmaking!!! I wish I could just do crafting all the time!!!

I have started to believe that work is getting in the way of my serious play. LOL!!! I love to Scrapbook and make cards and all kinds of Paper Crafts. I have the Cricut Expression and Love Love Love It too!!!. Have a wonderful husband whom I cherish and thank god for every day. My son who is 30 now is starting his own business and is a slow start but he's working on it. I have many wonderful friends whom I couldn't live without. Hope you enjoy seeing all my creations and I hope you will share yours with me too.

My First Purse made of Paper!!!

Here is a look at my very first Purse I made from Paper. It measures 7" wide by 5" tall not including the Handles which adds another 3". It will hold 10 notecards and envelopes and has a hook and loop closure under the gold button which I cut the back off of and then glued to the closure. Some of the parts I cut with the Cricut Expression. I only used 2 pieces of 12"x12" cardstock for the Purse Itself. I really think it came out pretty good. Let me know what you think. Thanks for Looking.

I've Been Really Busy!!!!

Here is a Stationary set I made and I am calling it "Island Life" since my husband is from Marthas Vineyard. These cards were made with pictures we took while visiting the Island. The Stationary Box is made from 2 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock and Is really easy to do. It measures about 6"W x 5" H x 2" Deep. This box will hold 6 Note sized cards, 6 3" cards for bags, and 6 Tags too.

A Little Florida Sunshine!!!

This card came out cute with all the Florida themed papers and Sunshine, with of course my matching envelope too. Used Okielady's cricut template for this card as well and here is her site again. http://okieladybugsscrapnmore.blogspot.com/ Also sent this to my Easter Swap partner just as a little Bonus gift.

Easter Swap Gifts

UPDATE: I entered this into the Cricutter Anonymus contest on 4/4/10 and the cartridges I used for these projects are George and Forever Young.

Hey Everyone, I 've been really busy making stuff and packing a swap gift box for my partner. Here's several things I made for the Swap and all of it ( except the chocolates, LOL!!) were made on my Cricut. The 1st picture is of chocolate goodies I sent inside an altered Crystal Light container. Came out cute huh?? For the Pink and Green card I used a template for the cricut that I got from Okieladys site which you can get here: http://okieladybugsscrapnmore.blogspot.com/ By the way she also has a video posted on this blog on how to make your own pop dots too!!! I had to design the Easter Bonnet on the Design Studio for Cricut and then cut it out. The rose on the card I made from the same ribbon around the hat and then I attached it to the card with Fabri-tak glue. I am also gonna try to attach my cut file that you can download for the Easter Bonnet Card. Have fun making yours. Here is the link for the Cut File: http://www.4shared.com/file/242764698/2f758ac3/Easter_Bonnet_Card-Forever_You.html
