Quick Valentine's Day card

Hi Crafters! sorry, I don't have a video today..I have been out of town all week so I didn't have any time to put something together. But I do have a quick and simple Valentine's Day card!

This card was made using my gypsy and the Smiley Cards cartridge that you can receive FREE when you purchase a Gypsy! I haven't had a chance to play with this cartridge yet, but I did a little experimenting last night and came up with this simple, but cute card!

I did weld the heart onto the card base to create the card. I will upload the gypsy file a little later today, so those of you that would like to make this card will find it a lot easier to do.

Well, I'm off to creating today! I missed my craftroom this week, and I purchased a new toy from HSN last week. The Teresa Collins I am going to play with it today. I will post the stamps I make...if they turn out!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Card using the Imagine

Hi crafters, I wanted to share a card I just made....I have been watching HSN today and saw the Todays Value is the Anna Griffin card making kit. I really like the 3-d embellishments, but didn't see any reason to purchase them when I can make them with my Imagine!

Here is a quick card I made using the Lori's Garden cartridge. I cut the image and all the pieces then layered them. I like the way it looks, I am going to play around with this idea....I also printed the cardstock papers and cut to make a 5x7 card using the Lori's Garden cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Bash birthday layout

Hi Crafters! Today I have a page layout using the Birthday Bash cartridge. I have really enjoyed using this cartridge the past few weeks! It really does have a lot of cute images.

So, of course, after the party I will have to scrap the I thought I would get a head start on it and created this 2 page layout.

All the little critters were cut at 3 inches. I didn't use my gypsy for this project, I just cut directly using the cartridge with the Cricut. I was even able to use the Birthday Bash cartridge to cut the large scallop in the center of the 2 page layout! I just did a "fit to page" on the scallop image on 43 under the Card/Tag feature.

Next week will finish up the month featuring Birthday Bash cartridge. I will announce the February cartridge next week.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
