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 Design Team Project for Sugar Sweet Paper Treats

Hi Everyone! This is my first project for "Sugar Sweet Paper Treats" and I am so happy to be a part of this Awesome Design Team..... This card is made from the new Lacey Labels Cricut Lite cartridge and I stitched the ribbon in & out of the design and then made the accordian rosettes for the front, The sentiment is cut out in Mirror Gold. Please visit Sugar Sweets blog by clicking the button to the left.....

So How do you like my Cupcake Wrappers Now.

These are the store bought cupcake wrappers that I made flowers out of ...... The two small rosettes are made by flattening the large cupcake wrappers and drawing a round swirl and then fashioning the rose...... The two white flowers are plain white cupcake wrappers that the purple one I inked the edges with a purple stamp pad and then after fashioning the flower used some alcohol ink and a paint brush and brushed some ink into the center for depth. The other white one I painted gold edges on it with my Smooch paint. The patterned cupcake wrappers can be found at most craft stores and the grocery store has some too. Let me know what you think OK..........

My First Mini Album as a Design Team Member for "Cricut Mini Albums"

First I want to tell you that Cricut Mini Albums is having a Surprise drawing as soon as we reach 200 followers. Rina doesnt know what shes giving yet but assures us it will be a good one. Here is the link for you to see and sign up..http://www.cricutminialbums.com/

Here is a little Tag Mini Album I had a ton of fun making....... The Tag is cut from the Tags Bags, Boxes, & More cart. and I cut them from Artists Black Board that I got here at a local artists

supply store, it is like chip board but a little softer and the Cricut has an easier time cutting this board, it also comes in White. Some of the Decorations are made with From My Kitchen Cart. Like the strawberries,

the other embellies are from stash I hador ones I made, One of my faves is the little wooden bird I got atMichaels, that came in a pkg of 4 and I just stained it with one of my ink pads.
Hope you like it.
