Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #25

I'm back with another challenge entry!!

This Wacky Wednesday is hosted by Paula from More Than Favors.  The challenge is to create a project using the Sweethearts cartridge...Well, I don't own this cartridge. So, I found this damask on the Stamping cartridge...I thought it would look great on a wedding card!!

This is my first attempt at a wedding card!  I added the skittles to the damask to add some dimension to it!  The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments" stamp set!!  I think it turned out great!

Wacky Wednesday #45-Cricutless Challenge

Hi Again!!

It's time for another Wacky Wednesday challenge over at More Than Favors.  This weeks challenge is to create a project "Old School Style", with NO CRICUT!!  Gasp!!! It's harder than you think!!!

I made this 12x12 layout using the My Mind's Eye "Quite Contrary" Collection...Thank goodness for die cuts and embellishments...That's all I have to say, lol.  This was such a challenge for me but I think it turned out pretty cute!!

My Pink Stamper Design Team Call Entry

How excting!! Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is having accepting entries for her latest design team call!!!

The challenge is to create a Cricut project using the colors orange, turquoise, green, and brown!! I thought this would be a hard challenge but I went to my craft room and started looking through my paper!! I found my DCWV Citrus Stack!! Love this paper!! The only color it didn't have in it was "BROWN". But we all know what our favorite brown color is that goes with everything, right? Craft cardstock, of course!! So I used the craft cardstock as my base and a few accents in the page...

I just received the Create-A-Critter in the mail today!! And of course I was dying to use it!!  So I decided to use the little sun and the sentiment to go along with it...Love how my layout turned out!!

Here is my entry...


base of layout: 12x12 craft cardstock
All patterened paper: DCWV Citrus Stack
Border punches
Create-A-Critter: Sun and "Sunny Days" sentiment
Prima flowers with Bling
Stickles for even more bling :)
Journaling stamp and turquoise ink

Hope you like my layout and wish me luck!!!

Peek-A-Boo Layout

I'm back today with another scrapbook layout!!  I am just a little behind on my scrapbooking.  Not too behind but I still have several pages to do to get caught up!

I took these pics of my girls playing at the park back in May...They were peeking through the holes in the tunnel and I captured some really cute shots!!

This is a bit of a different layout for me...As I said in my previous post, I recently purchased the Page Maps 2 book!  It was a very good purchase!!!! I love that book....You never run out of ideas!

Father's Day Layout

Hello Again!!

I'm back to day with a scrapbook layout!!  I love scrapbooking!  And I recently purchased the Page Maps book! And let me tell you, I LOVE IT!!! It comes with these notecards that you can tear out sketches and they are right at your finger tips!!  I used one of the sketches for this page.  I love how it turned out!!

This layout is of a picture taken of my hubby and our two daughters on Father's Day!! For the notebook paper, I just used my cropadile to add home and distressed it a little to make it look torn out of a notebook...Hope you enjoy!!

I am entering this layout in the Cricut Cartridge Choas Challenge over at the Tattered Time blog!  Since I don't own the Don Juan cart, I used the Plantin Schoolbook cart for the tag and the little hearts.
