BFF Card


I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Challenge Me Monday #71.  Wow, that's a mouth full, LOL.  This weeks challenge was to make a card for a friend.  Now, I have a friend in mind for this card, but if I say it on here it'll give it away before she can get it!!
ALL cardstock is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" piece of blue cardstock and folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then, for my first layer, I cut a piece of light green card stock at 5 1/4"x 4".  I layered a piece of lavender colored cardstock that was cut at 5 1/4"x 2 1/2" on the top half of the green cardstock using my ATG gun.  I covered up the "seem" of where the papers meet with a piece of light pink grosgrain ribbon and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  I attached the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I used the "Create a Critter" cartridge with my Cricut Expression to cut the Lamb and the Moon.  I cut the lamb at 3 1/2" and the moon at 2".  I secured the lamb to my card using 3D-Dots to make her pop off of the page making her the main focal point.  I attached the moon using my ATG gun.
Then to finish off my card I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Even More Punny-licious" set with a Stampin Up! Classic, Creamy Caramel, ink pad for my sentiment. 


I wanted to use some light pastel colors for this card because they seemed more warm and inviting.  The exact feeling that I want to give my friend.  I hope you all enjoyed it!!


Happy Crafting!!!!

Dragon Cricut Cut

This is just a dragon cut that my son David asked me to "make" for him.  It is from the "Designer's Calendar" Cricut cartridge.  I used a piece of 6x6 red cardstock.  It was from The Paper Company's Heritage Color Sheets.  I selected the dragon to cut and then I selected the "fit to page" button on my Cricut Expression to get the biggest cut possible with the size paper that I was using.
*Note:  If you are making a cut using the "fit to page" button that has layers, make sure you note the size so you can set your size dial for the layers so they will fit properly.
Happy Crafting!!!!

Time to Create a Unique View

This is an altered canvas that I created for Diemond Dies' Design Team call.  It was my first big mixed media project and I absolutely love how it turned out!!!!

I got lots of different close up pics.

I just love that clock piece in the corner!

This view finder die is a must have, it was so much fun to use!  I cut it in black chipboard and then again in chipboard covered in white paper.  I then took the squares from the black one that I cut out and put them in the white one and it actually looks like a view finder disc!!

Don't forget the sides of your canvases!

So pretty!

The arrow is pointing to the way to read the words for the title of the canvas, completely unintentional.


Love those butterflies.  I got these in a swap but I know you can find them on Etsy!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pics, if you have any questions please just ask.  As you will see in future posts I did end up making the team.  Yay me!!  It's my very first DT so it has been super exciting!!!!  Dee, the …

Altered Bird Cage

This is one really made me think outside the box.  I wanted to create a 3D item, and this is what I ended up coming up with.

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die to create this.  I cut the cage 4 times, the bird once and the wing twice out of medium weight chipboard.  Then I painted the 4 cages on both sides with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint from Tim Holtz and sprayed them with some Sunflower Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.
I glued the sides of the cages together with some Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and just held them until it was dry and just did that for all 4 sides.  Then I, very gently bent in the tops of the bird cages (I cut off the little bump that is on top of the hanging whole) and used the Scotch glue again to glue them together.  I also used some Tim Holtz jump rings to help hold the tops together until the glue was dry and holding.  Then I use another jump ring through the wholes on the top to hold them together and to attach the swivel clasp to.
