Card day Tuesday

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great day!
I know I am cause I'm on vacation for 6 whole days!!
I get to spend 2 days crafting 2 days with my husband of 13 years
and 2 days we are spending with our daughter at Universal Studios
weather permitting!!
OK so I like to share 2 cards with you the first one I made
for my daughters school. They just got upgraded to an "A"
school over the summer. So I thought that I would give them
a card  of thanks! Which I am happy to say is on display in
their trophy case at school. How cool is that!

The apple is made from Create a Critter. Real simple I just added some stickles.
And I stamped Thank you across the top. Here is the inside of the card.

For the inside I used Pooh Font Set. I found the paper at Michael's
in a pack that had the lined paper the apples and it also has a couple more
patterns in it. Super cute for school projects. I inked the edges and cut
stripes of apples and glued them to the bottom.  I'm happy with the way
it came out. I was stuck on how to make the inside until I went to Michael's
and seen this paper.

OK here is my next card. I had to make it for my husband for our wedding
anniversary! We have been married for 13yrs. and have been together for 17
yrs. I love him very much he is my everything! I don't care what kind
of mood I am in he can make me feel better. He is always making me laugh
and the best part is our daughter is the same way. She might
look like me but she acts just like Him! OK OK here is my card

We both like scary stuff & Halloween. So I used Happy Hauntings
I cut Happy from the Happy Halloween phrase  on pg.30 and I
just cut off the Halloween part. The frame is on pg.44. I know
this is a different type of card for an anniversary, but we are a different
couple! Also being on this DT for a few months now really makes you
think outside the norm! I love it! Thanks so much 4 stopping by.
Sorry it's so long! Don't for get to Stop by this weekend 4 our blog hop.
And please please check out our teams other projects today!

Friday use cricut lite cartridge

Hello & welcome to another day of scrapbook Friday!
Today we had to use a Cricut Lite Cartridge
I choose to use Bloom. I am still working
on a baby girl book. So I have been signing
up for many scrapbook Fridays to try and get
this book done. I have not been in a very crafty mode
lately so it's been hard to get something done with no
motivation. OK enough rambling on. Here is my page.

I have always loved these trees! I cut them out at 3"
CCR did not want to work properly when I was making this.
Every cut I made was cutting wrong. But I made it work.
I had to cut the pink part of the trees out twice. I then added
some liquid pearls.  The fence and the flowers did cut out ok.
Here is a close up of it. I cut it at 5"

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a Great day!!

Letter of The Day "G"

Hello everyone, I have a great page layout to share with you today. For todays theme we have the letter of the day "G". As soon as I seen the letter I knew what I wanted to make. A page decaited to my mom & my daughter! I am so thankful that they are able to be with each other. My father passed away before Destyne was born. And my husband's father also passed before she was born. So Destyne only has the one grandmother, and for them to be here together I am thankful! So I made  a layout of Destyne & her grandmother. Only she don't call her grandma. She calls her Gmaw! So here is a couple of pages I made using letters from Artiste and the Give Thanks is also from that cartridge.

The paper is from Best Creation and I added some stickles.
Both I got from Erica  ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by. Please check out more

Friday Outdoor Page

Well Hello There. Welcome to Scrapbook Friday!
I love making scrapbook pages! For today's page
I used Divine Wedding. I Got these papers from Erica
some time ago &  I knew I wanted to use them some how
but I wanted to hang them in my room. They are just too
pretty to keep in a book!

So here are the papers before I added anything. I
didn't add much because I didn't want to cover anything
on the paper!

This is what I added. I cut my letters in CCR at 1.5"
I made 2 sets and cut them at the same size
to shadow them.

Thanks for stopping by please go check out what the rest of the design
team had made for you today!

Well For this months Blog Hop I made 3 Different projects.
Sorry I did not make a 3-D project this time :(
I could not find one that really made me happy
But don't worry I got one picked out for next month :)
Ok So on to  my projects the first one I did I used Paper Doll
Teen Scene . I made  a birthday card for my niece.
What I did first was emboss my background paper
Then I cut my doll clothes at 5.75" I already  had my
doll cut. I cut out a page of them cause I knew I would use her
again. When I cut on my E2 I  use a fill page mode
and cut enough  to fill a 12 x 12 paper.  That way I have more cuts
of my favorites on hand.

Then I used Brilliance Pearlscent IVY color ink.
For my Happy Birthday 2U.

OK onto my next project. For my daughters room
We are redoing her room in Black & Pink.
So I made her some poodles using Once Upon A Princess.

I cut them out at 7" I only used 2 layers the shadow 
and the main cut, because I  wanted to embellish them.
I used Liquid pearls & stickles to add some spots & outline the bows.
Here is some close ups of each poodle. I am going
to frame them & hang them on her wall.
I will post some pictures later of her Room!

OK my last projects this one is not very special
But I like the way it turned out. I used Yummy Imagine
on my E2. This was the first time I used a Imagine cartridge.
I cut border at 4". Then I glued it to pick cardstock &
added some bling. This is the border finished I used it to add
some color to my scrap room. I put it on the bottom of my dry
erase board.

Here is the line up in case you get lost Next it Ashley

    Box Of doom

    Hi Everyone & welcome to Theme Day Thursday!
    For Today's project I had to make something  from
    The Box Of Doom!!!
    What is the box of doom you ask?
    Well it is when Erica sends you some paper
    that is not something that most people would buy.
    If we are late posting something or we miss a post
    we are punished!! 
    Don't worry it's NOT that bad!
    We are given these papers and we have to
    sign up and make something with them.
    This  is  really not  my style of paper at all
    but I think I made it work.
    And I really don't see it as a punishment I  see
    it as working outside your safe zone.
    Or trying something new!

    So here is my paper that I got.

    I know it's really not the bad, but not  something that I would
    have bought.
    Once I made up my mind what I wanted to do. 
    I love the way it turned out.
    First I found what I think it the perfect picture for this paper.
    Then I got to work on the layout.
    I cut 2 of this wagon out from Paper Doll Dress up
    Then I cut the barrel out also from Dress up.

    I inked them up, and used some foam squares.
    Then I added the picture of me, my mom, & my daughter.
    This was taken At Pigeon Forge TN it was really fun.
    I also taught that the picture needed a little more.
    So I cut this flourish thing from Divine Wedding. 

    And here is the finished layout.

    And here is a close up of the picture.

    Thanks for stopping by.  Now please check out some more projects like mine at
