Week 3 Cricut Challenge

  Hello there, and Happy Sunday to you all. Today was the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo. So I got to go with a good friend of mine Teri S. from Heart2Home. We had fun, and we both went home with lots of goodies. I can't wait to play with them.

  Here is my third week Challenge project. I made this for a friend of mines baby daughter. I haven't given it to her yet, so I hope she likes it and it's still a surprise.

Cartridges I used were Home Decor, and Word Collage. Word collage is a fun cartridge to use with Vinyl. There are so many different choices of collages. I already got an order for 2 wall hangings. Yay!!!! I also used Martha Stewart's Large Monarch Butterfly punch. I also used some packaged flowers, because I ran out of time to use my Flower Shoppe Cartridge. But there is always next time.

 I hope you like my project this week.

Thank you for stopping by, and Happy Crafting.

Faith Community Lutheran Crop

 This was an amazing week-end for me. I had the opportunity to attend the Faith Crop again. Thanks to my wonderful husband. He stayed home with the little ones while I got to go play for 2 days.

 The layout above was a make & take from Teri Schoeni. It was a single page layout, hers is the 1 on the left side. I decided to make it a 2 page layout. She was nice enough to give me her scraps so I could put the second page together. She is a very talented crafter. Thanks Teri

 These 2 layouts are from Janet Coppens from Creative Memories, They were super easy to make and fast too. The second layout, I decided to add some of my pictures to it of my 2 little ones. Corrina was learning to walk just before she turned 1 year old. when she made it up to her feet at the end, she was holding on to Anthony and for a brief second they were dancing together. Just too sweet.

This single page layout was Gina Julians from Croppers Nook. This was her make & take. super easy and very cute.

This was one of mine. This is of my Daughters 1st birthday. It took me forever to make this,
I think it's because I was just talking too much. lol oh well, that's what crops are for right, socializing.

  This was another layout I did, not to happy with it but here it is. It's just of us 4 in our everyday life. simple.

 This was my last layout I did. I think it came out really cute. It's of my husband and my daughter just being silly. Corrina was having the really deep belly laughs, which in turn made me laugh too. This was a fun day to watch my husband play with Corrina.  I made some faux bows, which I got the idea from youtube. I can't tie a bow for the life of me lol. I also added some beautiful decorative pins by Teri Schoeni from Heart2Home.

  That's it for my crop accomplishments. I had such a great time, can't wait for the next one in February.

 Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Crafternoon.

Cricut Challenge week-2

  Good Morning and a Very Happy Sunday to you all. This week-end has been absolutely great. I got to go to a 2 day crop and had a great Mommy's 2 days off. I got a lot accomplished. I will share pictures of that later.  So I was really Motivated to create my 2nd weeks challenge. While my Husband watched football, I sat next to him with my Lovely Gypsy. I designed the entire layout using the Layers feature. I separated each cut by color then cut it all with the E-2. The Cartridges I used were:

3 Birds on Parade- for the moon,I inked the edge with Only Orange Ink to give it dimension.
Happy Hauntings-for the bats and the Happy Halloween
October 31st -Spider,Tree,Cat,Witch,Gates and tombstones
Chic & Scary for the pumpkins
Plantin SchoolBook - Grass

 The pumpkins were a last minute add on because I received the cart in the mail lol. They are not adhered to the page yet because I'm not sure if I want to keep them on it or not. I did take a picture without them, but it came out too blurry and I'm on a time limit here. Yes I know I'm addicted to Cricut Carts, well with crafting in general.

 I hope you like my Layout and challenge for this week.

 Thank you for stopping by and have a Crafty afternoon.

Cricut Challenge week-1

  Good Morning and Happy Sunday to you all. Sorry this is late today, But we were having a yard sale, trying to clear up some room in our garage.
 This is my first project for my Cricut Challenge. I decided to use the Dude Lite Cartridge for this challenge. My little brother is having a birthday here in a few days and he is really into skateboarding. That is what motivated this use of the Dude Cart. I cut the skater at 3", Extreme @ 3',and the ramp at 2". The skater and the ramp were a real challenge because the lines are so fine and delicate. I had to re-cut those 2 several times until it would cut perfect with different settings.

For the inside I used crocheting cord in black to give it a bit of a break up from the gray. I also added "Happy Birthday" cut from the Beyond Birthday Cart at 2".
 I layered all the images in several colors to give it some dimension.

The card base is from Bazzil paper in Gray texture. I cut it down to 81/2"x 12", I scored it at 51/2" and 11". I also used the left over strip to create a handy money pocket. I also used Stampin Ups Basic Gray Ink pad to ink the edges of the card. I used red-lined tape to adhere the strip to the card. I also used Stampin Ups large oval punch to create an opening for the money.
  I hope  you and mainly Chaz likes my card. Looking forward to week 2 of my challenge. I'm not sure which cart I will feature, but I will let you know as soon as I decide on one.

Thank you for stopping by and have a Crafty Day.

Birthday cards

 My wonderful husband had a birthday yesterday, so he is now officially my old man lol. But I love him dearly.  He is really into skulls, so I searched my Stampin Up stamps and paper and I found something that matched and had skulls on it. How cool is that. I did use some stickles in the eyes of the skulls to bring them out, plus I love stickles. 

A good friend of ours also had a birthday recently. Eddie loves aliens, so I made this card for him. Its a duplicate of a decal I made for his Jeep. I used some recollections Crew Brads to add a little masculinity to it. 

 I hope you like my cards. I am doing a give-away on my Facebook Fan Page, it's a set of 5 Halloween cards that I made. 
 To enter you must like the fan page (not the post)
and you must share my fan page on your Facebook wall. It's that easy, I will be drawing a winner Friday morning. Good luck.
