Happy 50th Anniversary

I was fortunate enough to be ask by my good friend to help make some “take away treats” for her parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. Needless to say I was more than happy to help. She on the other hand…lol…offered to help and thought it would take an hour or so.

We made 72 of these…

I hope they liked them.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Happy Anniversary??

Before I get to my project I need some feedback.  I am lucky enough to be getting my own craft room!!  As exciting as it sounds, it’s also overwhelming.  From paint colour to set up…etc…..it’s a lot to think about.  I am looking for any tips or suggestions for those that have craft areas.  What do you like about your space that is working for you?  What would you change?  I appreciate all of your help.

Now on to my project….

A family member had a birthday coming up and as a paper crafter it’s hard to buy a card (not that I haven’t done it).  The problem is that this card was for a male.  I’m sure I am not the only one who has a hard time making cards for men.  Here is what I came up with…


Here is the inside…


And an envelope to match….


Not too bad if I do say so myself.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Happy Anniversary Gift Card

Wow…almost a month without posting.  It's amazing how life gets in the way….or just when you think you are going to get back to posting you end up getting sick yourself.  Oh well.  Here I am.

My in-laws recently had an anniversary so I had to make them a quick card.




I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and many of My Creative Time's dies and stamps for this card.  Super easy and super cute!

Until next time…have fun creating!!


My Cricut Craft Room – The Letter E

The letter of the day is E


As soon as I saw the theme I knew I had to participate!  For those of you that know me or follow my blog you know I love elephants.  Lucky for me, my adorable neice loves elephants too.  She just had her 4th birthday on the weekend so I just had to make her an elephant card.


And here's the inside….


The elephant is from the Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge and is cut out at 2.53" on my gypsy.

My daughter was looking at the layout and thought I should try something different.  She came up with the idea to punch a circle out of the layer piece so that the sentiment would show through.  The sentiment on the front of the card and the inside are from My Creative Time's Wow, So Many Candles stamp set.

Gift Card Holder with Birthday Bash

Theme Day Thursday

Today's theme is Birthday/Party.  My project today is super simple!!!  I needed a quick gift card holder for a friend's daughter.  I saw this cute hippo in the Birthday Bash cricut cartridge and thought I would venture out and give it a try.

I also didn't to want to put on too many embellishments as it's for a young child who will probably rip it or crush it.  So here it is…


I also used My Creative Time's gift card holder and gift card sentiments stamp set.

Happy Anniversary!!

Today is my in-laws anniversary and I thought I would make them a simple card.  My daughter picked out the "Mr & Mrs" from Tie the Knot cricut cartridge.  This was cut at 1.5".  The background is from Elegant Edges cartridge.  This is the leaves design using the oblong feature and the shadow feature cut at 4.5".



Until next time…have fun creating!!
