Puppy Dog Card

A sweet tri-fold Shutter card I made for my friend Suzi.
Cartridges used: Paper Pups (retired) and Create a Critter
I've have alot of people ask how the card is cut: Take a 6x12 piece of cardstock and score it at 2,4,8,10 inches. Then you cut both the top and bottom from the 2 to the 10 inch score marks at 1 1/2 inches in. Fold back and forth to create peaks and valleys. Then decorate ☺
If this doesn't make sense email me and I can go into further detail. Happy Cricuting

Cricut Cartridge Storage- Episode 3

Check out my newest video! I love this system, sure beats ALL those boxes everywhere!

I purchased the clip it up's from

the 5x8 bags from ebay.

Challenge card

My pink stamper had a challenge to get us out of our comfort zone, and I must say this really did. The challenge was to make something Father's Day related. Well since I need to make a card I chose that, and I have never made a masculine card before! Enjoy!
I used the Old West Cricut cartridge. The NEW clockworks cuttlebug folder, Tim Holtz and Stampin up stamps, and a Martha Stewart border punch

Im so excited to have made my first video! It took me awhile to get a program that would work with my camcorder, I spent an hour on the phone with Sony...and finally !! Wha La!

If you like my storage idea, here's the instructions:
1. Cut 5 pieces 14 x 87 squares this will be your vertical pieces
2. Cut 4 pieces 14 x 85 squares this will be your horizontal pieces
3. Vertical pieces cut every 15 row 8 squares down all the way across
4. Horizontal pieces cut every 19 row 7 squares down all the way across.

My poor tree

My poor beautiful oak tree. It came crashing down today :( I loved looking out my scrapbooking window and seeing this. This tree was one of the main reasons I bought this house! I'm so bummed but I am thankful it didn't hit our house. It came within 3 feet, if the root would of came with the tree it definitely would of done some serious damage.
