Cricut Cardz Challenge #71: Mother's Day

Sunday, April 24, 2011


 Time to create a Mother's Day card using any cartridge and colors. I used the Storybook cartridge to create the petals for the flower and an embossing folder to add texture (the name of the folder escapes me). The paper is from K & Company, the bling and paper flower is from imaginesce, and the ribbon is from my stash. Enjoy! Happy Mother's Day!

Hubby's Birthday Card

I just thought I would share the birthday card I made for my wonderful husband for his 34th birthday. I made each of the faux matches from different pieces of scrap paper. The flames are from the Birthday Bash cartridge. Enjoy =)

CCC #69 Easter Layout, Card or Project

I chose to do an Easter Layout...thank you CCC team for the suggestion, now I am actually ahead in my scrapbooking (a first for sure). In my Easter layout I used the Doodlecharms, Storybook, and Nate's ABCs cartridges (I love that cartridge). Thanks again for the inspiration design teams.

It's good to be back! CCC #68

Wow! It has been way too long! My family and I have finally made it to our new home and I am looking forward to getting back into scrapbooking and card making =)

This week's Cricut Cardz Challenge is to create a card using a house image, lace and a flourish. I will write that I found this challenge difficult, but worth the effort and a chance to think outside the box. I decided on a Joy-fold card. The house die-cut is from the Wrap It cartridge. The flourish is from the Cindy Loo cartridge and the bit of lace from my mother's-in-law sewing stash.

Thanks for checking out my blog and card!
