Valentines Day Card #3

I just finished uploading my latest video to YouTube on my third Valentine's Day card. This one is definitely my favorite valentine card so far but there are still many more cards to come! I used the Storks Delivery Cricut Cartridge to make the sentiment and the scallops for this card. I also used my I Top Brad Maker for the brads, a tutorial on how to use the i Top can be found on the video page of this blog. Enjoy!

Micheal's Haul

I was just in my local Micheal's and I found an amazing deal! I was just going in to buy some Valentines paper packs for some of my upcoming cards but I came out with A LOT more! In the center isle there was this clearance grab bag bin. The bags were $2 each and they were HUGE! I couldn't resist the temptation so I bought 4 of them. I wish I had bought more, I'll probably go back in and get some because there were so many great things inside the bags. I am in the process of uploading a video where I go through my haul but I thought I would post some pictures to show you just how much stuff I got for only $8.

Valentines Day Card #2

I just created a new Valentines Day card. I am having so much fun creating cards for the season. I am also going to be creating some Valentine Scrapbook layout themes as soon as I get my Creative Memories products in.

Valentines Day Card

I just finished creating a valentines day card. I used the Sweetheart cricut cartridge and the Love-alicious stamp set from My Pink Stamper. I decorated both the front and inside of the card. I hope you like it. It will be only one of many valentines cards to come. Enjoy!

New Series Idea

I am planning on starting to create a new type of series. I will be going through a new cricut cartridge for each series using both old cartridges and imagine cartridges. In each series I will focus on one cartridge and use every image from it to create different projects. Once I have used all of the main images on a cartridge I will move onto another cartridge and start another series. Let me know what you think of this idea and if you have any requests for cartridges that you would like me to feature.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I am in the process of uploading then editing a video on how to use your cricut imagine. I go over everything from the features to how to update your imagine to calibrating it and to actually using it. I hope that it is informative enough for everyone and that it helps you with using your machine. If there is anything that I left out in my video that you want to know more about just let me know. I should hopefully have it up by tonight or tomorrow.

Peek-a-Boo Card

I have created two different peek-a-boo cards using only scraps. I wanted to use up some of my scrap pieces of paper that I have in a box. The pile just seems to get bigger and bigger so I decided to actually use them. I did not cut one fresh piece of paper for these projects. Even my images were ones I had in a tin that I had not got around to using yet. I hope you like this project!

Motivational Card

I have just made a motivational card. It's the kind of card you would give someone who is struggling or making wrong decisions. I made it for a person in my life who is going through a tough time and I just want them to know that they have the power to change their situation. I used my Cricut Imagine and my 'Believe In Yourself ' stamp set by My Pink Design. I hope you like this card and thanks for following!

Christmas Scrapbook Page Layout

I have made a two page scrapbook layout to put some of  my Christmas pictures in from this year. I used "The Ballet" paper pack from recollections and my scrap'n'easel that I got for Christmas to create it. I have had some problems with my scrap'n'easel though. The plastic sheets that are supposed to fit into the corners of my easel and lay flat don't. They end up bubbling up and no matter what I try I can't seem to get the plastic to be flush with the easel. I am thinking of taking it back to the place my mother bought it from and seeing if they can get it to work. I will be heading back to work tomorrow so I wont be able to post as many videos as I would like. I am uploading the one for this scrapbook layout right now though so I should have that one up shortly. I hope you like this project! Enjoy!

Happy New Years

I hope that everyone had a great New Years and Christmas. I most definitely did. I spent lots of time with friends and family. I have not posted a video in a while because I have been busy working on finishing my basement in my house. My husband and I do not have any construction background whatsoever which has made every task we have set out to accomplish a learning experience. I am very proud of the work that we have done so far but there is still a long way to go. My husband and I have recently adopted a stray cat which we named Bolt, he is the most cuddly cat I have ever met but I have 4 wonderful parrotlet birds which made getting one room in our basement closed off a necessity. My craft room is down in our basement and my crafting table has been covered with tools, nails, and basement plans for the past two weeks. Today we finally cleaned up the basement and I got my crafting space back! I will be recording and posting a lot more videos that will be uploaded in the next few days now that I have my room back. If you have any requests on projects that you would like to see just let me know. Here are a few pictures of what we have accomplished so far in our basement. I'm hoping to have everything done by next Christmas. Then I will have an actual crafting room with painted walls and everything which will be so exciting.
