Category: Cricut had an awesome challenge to combine a colour from my minds eye new line, and white.. I chose pink and white.. what better colour to choose to do a layout of my new angel and I. I used so many different fun things on this layout. First I cut my bazzill bling into 6×6 squares, both of them 2 shades of pink(sorry I dont remember the name of the colours), then I did the same with my gorgeous patterned paper that was dying to get used for months. I made a patchwork with the squares for my base, and used my martha stewart scalloped edge punch on the patterned paper.! Then I used 2 pictures of Abigail and I. I accented with gems, to add a bit of bling. In the center I placed 2 of my thrift store find silk flowers, with an accenting brad, and hand drew some stickle flourishes. Then I had to figure out what to do for a title. I was inspired by what my mother says to me all the time “Before I was your mom…” and then she finishes the sentence. So, I cut my title with Sure Cuts A Lot out of white.. for the journalling I took 3 paint chips in various shades of pink, edged them with the same martha stewart edge punch, and layered them. My journalling says ” I slept 8 hours a night, I got to shower every morning, I wasn’t complete”… all things applicable to life before I was Abby’s mom! Ithen tied some polkadot pretty in pink ribbon around the bottom.  I hope you like my layout as much as I do! I had a blast making it. Please feel free to comment!

Advertisements has a song inspired never done one based on a song..
since I had never done a challenge based on a song, I figured it was embracing the true word of CHALLENGE. I took inspiration from the “red roses” and the “colors of the rainbow so pretty”

I hope you enjoy! I had fun with this card! Took forever for the stickles to dry tho! LOL

A few new pages!

Well I got in my groove, and made 2 pages!! The first one is of Abigail, in an outfit she got a million times at her baby shower. I bought her one! I love the outfit. I painstakingly tried to recreate the bib’s horse and look in the layout! Not sure how good it is, but I think alright! The 2nd layout is of Zachary and Abby in their BIG BRO/ little sister shirts I got them at Gymboree! I love the shirts and the layout!! Enjoy!

Christmas cards!! 6 more!

WOW! All I gotta say is WOWZ!! Apparently people who find Cricut’s golden tickets for the cruise will also be given one of these machines as part of the prize! WOWZA! I wish I was one that found a golden I know how Charlie Bucket

cardsI am decorating Zachary’s playroom in Sesame Street it is his new favorite show, and he loves his “mo” aka Elmo.  Here are the first 2 I have cut! Lots more to do, as his playroom is the biggest room in the house! has a challenge for a shaped card. They are also looking for new design team members…2 of them. I can only hope that this card is up to the par of some of the competition for the design team. I started with my Wild Card cricut cartridge, and cut the base of my card…shaped like a baby buggy. I used designer paper for the buggy..its so cute!!  I then embellished with lace, primas, and a fancy brad, as well as some stickles and faux stitching. I cut the words new arrival out of purely pomegranate Stampin Up cardstock.. then to add a bit of something to the card, I cut the baby, who you only see her little head til you open the card. I cut a bow to put in her hair, that matches the buggy, and you cant really see it, but added some little earrings…two tiny drops of star dust stickles. It was such a fun card to make… thanks for looking!!! Click on the small pics to view larger!

Hugs, and happy Scrappy Days,
