My kids think Im crazy but oh well

I have been looking for a couple years now for the perfect paper to put ghosts and skulls on my kitchen window for the kids when they trick or treat. My kids, are way too old for that now. A friend of mine found some and gave it to me… and here is the result


Its card day

 used all CM paper from the cottage power palette. The paper ribbon is from the new reminisce power palette. Sweet treats and George for my cricut cuts.

My second card. All CM vintage power palette for the paper, CM cheerful cart for the flower and flourishes, and Just because cards for the Getting there, and I added the “up” with the gypsy font

My third card. I used all CM paper, of course, Creative Memories Cheerful font for the title, George for all the square cuts and camp out for the animals.

A butterfly challenge?

I saw this butterfly challenge and went to work immediately. I used the sentimentals cart for the butterfly. The paper is Creative Memories. the ribbon is the new CM paper ribbon. I love this stuff.

I got another layout done for my sons book. I used the earthy power palette for all the paper. For the title I used learning curve and for the tools was Handyman Lite Cricut Cart.

Another challenge card

what is this challenge? To make something with a bird on it. I need a bird day, I mean birthday card for a little one I know.. I used  the Wild card, Create a critter and 3 birds cartridges.. all the paper is from a CM national scrapbook day a year ago.

I wanted to share the news

Creative Memories and Nancy O’Dell have become partners. It turns out Nancy is a huge scrapbook fan and its importance in everyones lives. I got to see her speak at our National Convention, and she was wonderful. Because of her partnership, she has developed her own line of products for Creative Memories, and let me tell you they it is gorgeous.

make your own embellishments

Sometimes I make my own embellishments and I can use them either digitally or traditionally. I can them save them to use over and over again using Storybook Creator plus.  What is nice about being able to save them, is you can also size them to fit on the page or card your working with. Allyou have to do is print it on cardstock, and cut it out. Then use foam squares to pop them up off your page.

Here is one that I just did for my customers
