It’s My Elephantastic Birthday Blog Hop!!

It's finally here!!! 

It's my blog's birthday!  It's hard to believe I have been sharing my projects for one year now!  It took me awhile to get started but I am so glad I did.  I have made some awesome friendships along the way and I cherish every one of them.  For those of you that aren't aware….I love elephants!  I have been collecting them since forever so I thought it was appropriate to celebrate this blog hop incorporating an elephant into a project.  It could be any kind of project!  I am sooo excited to see what everyone has made!  Make sure you stop by all of the great talent in this blog hop and leave a comment.  There is some blog candy to give away but if you want an extra chance just create your own project incorporating an elephant and post it on the It's My Elephantastic Birthday Blog Hop facebook page. 

Tanner aka Mr.Cricut Crazy has been so kind…he has not only helped me with this blog hop but he has also donated some products!!  Make sure you go and check out his store along with his project for the blog hop!

On to my project….I made this cute elephant shaped card with my gypsy using the Holiday Cakes cartridge and ran the elephant through my cuttlebug with the perfect polkadots embossing folder.  I have yet to add a sentiment to this card since I could use it for a baby shower or my niece's birthday card since she too loves elephants (no idea where she gets it from)!


Your next stop is Tanner…Mr. Cricut Crazy himself!  When you are done the blog hop come back and make sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you thought about the blog hop and I will use to pick a winner for some blog candy!

Here's the amazing line-up of talent…

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Circle Shaped Card

I have been trying out some different shaped cards lately and decided to make a circle shaped card.   This was also my first attempt at doing some sort of doodling on my card.  Actually I have done a bit before but never posted the card.  I love how other people can add doodling to their cards but I don't seem to do it as well as I would like.  If you have any tips or tricks you use for doodling…please let me know!!



I used Elegant Edges and Birthday Cakes cartridges and My Creative Time's Many Greetings stamp set.

For those of you who aren't aware….I am hosting an It's My Elephantastic Birthday blog hop on August 20 to celebrate my one year of blogging.  There is some amazing talent in this hop come and check it out.  Here's the link to the facebook page.

Until next time…have fun creating!!




Butterfly Shaped Card

I have been creating some shaped cards in my gypsy and finally decided to cut one out.  This one is from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I used My Creative Time's new stamp set called Many Greetings



Until next time…have fun creating!!
