Would you ever guess it Wednesday


Good morning & welcome to Would You Ever
Guess Wednesday from My Cricut Craft Room.
For today's project we got to make SHAMU Pages.
I love going & visiting Shamu at Sea World
so I got 5 pages to show you. Here is the first one.
We had to use pink as well as make our projects
on black & white paper.
I used Life's a beach for most of my cuts today.
These letters where cut at 2.5" in pink glitter
& then again in black then I just layered them
Here is a close up.

These 2 pages was done with Life's a beach & the
Splash was cut from Create A Critter

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my pages & my pics.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Friday scrapbooking day

Hello Hello Hello
Welcome to another Scrapbook Friday
This is my favorite Day!

Today I made a Cute Critter Page.
I use Cricut Craft Room Freebie
to make my page Layout today.
This is a great way to try out a new
cartridge before you buy it. This was just a 
preview of the  cartridge not the full thing. I used
Create A Critter 2. I love the first one
so I knew before I even tried this I would
end up buying it. And I did I got it ordered
 from The lovely miss Erica . She has them
for a  really good deal. Here is her link
OK so here is
my first page.
I cut out Happy twice and layered it at the same size.
I added some stickles to the balloons. I wanted
to cut out some more, but didn't get a chance to
before the free time was up on CCR.
I'm sorry I do not remember the size I cut everything out
at I had it written down put misplaced it. Scrap happens
Right? Here is some close ups. I added
some stickles on the pigs hat & buttons. I just
love PIGS :)
 More stickles!!

And here is my second page. 
Thank you so much for stopping by
Have a great day.

Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Playground Equipment

This is another quick post on a 2 page layout
I made using Cricut Craftroom Exclusive
Playground Equipment

This is the page that I started with It's from
The Playtime stack by DCWV
This paper is so cute!
Here is what I added.

I cut out the rocking horse at 3" and flip him
to face the left then added
a action wobble. Cause a horse has to wobble right!
Then I added a photo mat & a sun sticker.
Here is a closeup of the horse in action.

The next page I cut out the swing set & the slide in
CCR. The swing is cut at 3" & the slice at 3" then I
made it a little longer by stretching it a little. This is
what I like about using CCR is so easy and you
can make cuts they way you want them just by using
your mouse.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

3-D projects

Hello Just a quick post to show off
some 3-D projects I made using
Cricut Craftroom Exclusive cartridges.
The Cartridge I used was Independence Day
3-D projects. I made these projects to take to a
4th of July cookout. The 1st one
is a 3-D bag that you can put snacks in
or something small.
The bag was cut at 4.5" I used a plain blue
card stock & a red shimmer paper.

I used the same paper for this Rosette that I used on the
bag. I  made this  one to fit the page  using  my mini
to cut with. Which I love I have the personal the E2
& the mini. And I love the mini the most. Not that
I would ever give up my others.  The mini is the
one that I use the most on the projects
that I have been doing lately.
Sorry anyhow I had a hard time getting this
to stay together. Finally I found something that held.
I used Beacon 3-in-1 glue. I could not find my
hot glue gun to try that. I'm sure it would have.
These were super easy to put together and I
love the way they turned out. Thanks
for stopping by have a great day!

Friday Scrapbook page

Hello there & welcome to another Scrapbook Friday!!
Today over at MCCR we are making layouts with 4 pics
on a page. I really wanted to try something different
than what I made but the page just didn't turn out right
I wanted to use tiny pics and have them in a half circle
after cutting all my pics up real tiny I could not
get the shape of them right so this is what
I came up with instead.


I took a sheet of paper from a Christmas pack then
I added the green strip of shimmer paper & cut
my pics to 4x3. Next I cut out Sweet Memories
from Winter Frolic using CCR at 3.5" I also
cut out my tags from Winter Frolic at 3".

I used some journal pads and added some ribbon to my
tags.  These pics are from Christmas 8yrs ago! Yea I know
I am a little behind :) These pics are funny & they
are moments that I will treasure for ever. The
first one is of my daughter Destyne & Blue's Clues
which she loved at that age. The second pic is
Destyne laying on her pillow she just loves pillows
and our dog Baby who passed away. The next pic is  of
my husband who has his eyes closed, me & I'm making a
face that until I seen this pic didn't realise how much
I made this face. lol & Destyne is the only one looking
at the camera! The last pic is of me & my husband
sitting on the floor on my daughters little couch. lol.

I am so glad that you stopped by to visit me. Please
stop by and  visit the rest of the DT at:

Letter of the day "J"

Hi everyone welcome to the LETTER of the Day!
Today I went with Jack-o-Lantern. Everyone seems
to  be in a Halloween mood, so I wanted to show
you a quick page I made  I normally put alot more
into my pages & I will add to this. But I wanted to show you
how the markers look when you use them in your Cricut. I
cut out the phrase from pg. 61 of Mini Monsters
using the black marker to make my cut at 3". Then I
used the blade to cut out the phrase. So it outlines
the phrase very nice in black ink.

Here is my page. I know it's very plain even for me
Trust me I will add to it. I also cut out the cute
Jack-o-Lantern using Create a Critter at on pg. 70 at 3.5"
to see more projects today!! Thanks 4 stopping by

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog HOP

Hello Everyone! Hope you are having a great Weekend!
I am at Universal Studios in Orlando with my Family
I have not been here in about 10yrs. Pray the rides
dont make me sick. OK enough about that This month
I used Baby Steps, Paisley, & Over the Hill.
I really wanted to make a top hat that is in Over the Hill,
but that hat did not want to be made. So I hope you don't mind
that I had to use something else. I try to make at least one 3-D
item for my hop. That is why I wanted to make the top hat.
Oh well as they say"Scrap Happens" Here is my card that I made
from Over the Hill. I cut it out at 5.5" in CCR.

I really like this card it's on pg.14 and is  really easy to
put together. I used some heavy red texture cardstock
for the card and then used some plain blue for the
layers. Then of course I had to add some bling!
Here is the inside.

I stamped the inside & added  some more bling.
This is on it's way to a fellow DT friend that is having a
hard time. I hope it will cheer her up some.
I have used this cartridge a few times & just because
it is a birthday getting older type of cartridge does
not mean that you have to use it for that. I love
finding different uses for the cartridges. Being on this team
helps me with that.
Ok my next project is another card I made for
my best friend. She HATES dragonflies. But she
and my husband threw me a surprise birthday party.
So I had to get her back. On day I was in our break
room at work and there was a dead dragonfly
on the ground. So I told a fellow worker to
pick it up (cause I was not about to touch it) and give
it to Robin (my best  friend). Well he threw it on her
I never heard her scream so loud! It was very funny
but when she found out I had something to do with it
she was NOT happy. SO I made her this card!


I'm hoping she thinks it is cute. We will see. ;)
I cut the dragonfly out from Paisley cartridge at 4"
Then I added some liquid pearls. Super easy to make
Ok my last project is a LO. I am still working on
a baby book for a girl at work. So I used Baby steps
for this one.

I cut the baby sleeping out at 3.5" and the cloud out at
4.5"  I inked the edges of the cloud with brilliance
moonlight white. The nap time I cut out at 2.5" I
inked the top of Nap because it was too close
to the same color as the time. I tried to make the ink
fad from dark to light. But you can't really tell from
the picture. Well I hope you have enjoyed my projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
