My Daughters Card

My 4 yr old daughter was soooo excited to make a Fathers Day card! She did an awesome job. She picked out what to cut, what colors to use, she cut it with the cricut, and glued it all together!

She even used a PK stamp, colored in the lips and used a white gel pen to add that special touch!

The only thing I did was tell her the buttons to push on the Cricut and what layer went next!

A little scrapbooker in training !!! I LOVE it !!!
She used Robotz and Doodlecharms!

Father's Day Challenge card

I think this is a simple but elegant card. I used the New Wall Decor and more Cricut cartridge and the new "Scrollwork" Cuttlebug folder. I also used foam dots to make the airplane pop off the card and added dots with a white gel pen. Enjoy !

Hello Kitty

First time I tried out my Hello Kitty cart. It makes some cute little shape cards! I also used the centerpoint feature to cut around the ladybug (but I wanted it off to the side so it would look more natural)

This is the front and back of the cards!

Challenge Card

My Creative time with Emma had a "animaL" themed challenge so since I LOVE Create a Critter and have been wanting to try this hippo I made a card!

I used the cricut ink pens to outline the hippo and water, used stickles on the hippo and water for a little bling and used my cuttlebug for the bottom to help it look more like water :) Also used a white and black gel pen.....enjoy!

New "Lite" Cartridges

Cricut has released new "Lite" cartridges. The information so far is they are only available at Walmart there are around 24 different ones and will be $39 !!! The Lite carts are similar to solutions carts where they will have 50 images.

Do we really need that many released at once? Unless they go cheaper I wouldn't find myself spending $39 for only 50 images.

Here's what they will look like ..........................

My latest steal!

My latest "steal" at Big Lots these were $1 apiece !!!
Ribbon brads, flower brads and jeweled brads LOVE IT !!!

Preschool graduation Invitation

This is a graduation invitation I made for my daughter's preschool graduation! She is such a big girl now!

I added some BLING to her shoes and her cap. I also made a removable keepsake tag with my daughters picture that fits so sweetly in a custom made pocket on the inside!

I used Every Day Paper Dolls cartridge and Doodletype cartridge for the tag, also used a Martha Stewart punch and PeachyKeen Dolly Dumpling stamps for the face
