Mothers Day Card

Hi Everyone!! I have another card for you today. I made this card for my Mother for Mothers Day and I think it came out pretty well. The paper and cardstock are from DCWV and I used my Cricut Expression and the Walk In My Garden cartridge to cut the flower pot and the bleeding hearts flowers. I wanted a softer look for the hearts themselves so I cut them in the pink cardstock instead of  red, which is their natural color... I I used a scallopped circle .cut file for Design Studio using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge from Okieladybug's blog here and adjusted the size to my needs. I used Stardust Stickles on the pink hearts and the pink part of the scallopped circles. The sentiment is from Studio G and the only thing I am not really happy with. The sentiment itself is ok, but I really need to expand my collection of ink colors and buy more sentiments for more occasions. I glued the part of the stem in the pot down and then pop dotted everything else for some dimension. The bow was from my stash. Hope you like it!

Cinderella Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my granddaughter Tianna for her 7th birthday in April. It is only the 3rd card I have ever made and I don't think it turned out all that well. I figured, Oh Well, it's for a 7 year old and they are usually more interested in the money inside than the card I used my Cricut Expression for the cuts. The font is from A Childs Year and the Princess Cinderella is from Happily Ever After. The cardstock is Bazill Bling and I also used a lot of Stardust stickles to bling her up a bunch. Here is a picture of the inside. I forgot to take a picture before I signed it so pardon my sloppy handwriting.

March Swap 8 X 8 All ABout Me Layout

This is a layout I did for another Swap over on the Cricut Message Boards in March. I had to make 18 of these. I used my Cricut Expression with SCAL for the lettering, Walk In My Garden for the ladybugs, Independence Day for the eagle, and Everyday Paper Dolls for the little girl in her jammies and bunny slippers. She looks just like me, minus a few gray The cardstock and rhinestones are from my stash and I used a Peachy Keen face stamp for the doll. I hand drew the glasses. I also took a silver pen and did a lot of doodling. Sorry, I had to cover my personal info for privacy reasons. Here are a couple more closeups.

September Swap 8 X 8 Holiday Cookie Reciope Layout

This is a layout I did for a Swap over on the Cricut Message Boards way back in September. It was our September swap but not due until December 1st. It was a Holiday Cookie Recipe Swap and I had to make 16 of these. I had a blast though. I used my Cricut Expression with SCAL for the lettering, and then Paper Doll Dress Up for the Gingerbread Boy and Girl, and My Community for the Gingerbread House. Stickles were my friend on this one because I think I stickled everything that could possibly be stickled. I also took a white opaque marker and did a lot of doodling around a lot of things. I thought it turned out fairly well. Here are a couple of closeups.
