Wise Owl

This is a graduation card for my sister. She will be graduating from college with a degree in child care. I used the cuttlebug embossing folders, Create a Critter cartridge for the owl and the Hello Kitty cartridge for the graduation cap. I used the paisly patterned paper to make my owl a little more girly.

Party Guests

I am getting so much done today. I love it when I get to scrap all day. I used A Child's Year for the font on this page. I really like this cartridge now that I have it. When I bought it I didn't even know it had a font. The other items on the page are chipboard pieces that I've had laying around for a year or more. The papers are all from the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean stacks.

Spoiled Rotten

Dear little Olivia. We're not sure if she's part Chihuahua or Meerkat. She sits up all the time, whether she's begging for food or just looking around. In these pictures she was about 4 months old. The only Cricut cut on this page is the cream cardstock behind the flowers. It was cut from Graphically Speaking and then the edges were inked.


LID Challenge #2 for the week. For this layout I used the Gypsy font for wings and butterly words. For Jordan I used Alphalicious. The butterly is from the new Create a Critter cartridge. I love this picture because it shows my niece during that time in a girls life when she is quickly changing from a kid to a young lady.

Happy Birthday Princess

LID Challenge for 5/15-5/21/10
For this challenge I used pictures from my daughter in-laws 20th birthday party. She's very girly and very sweet so the monter cupcake cake doesn't really fit her, but I thought it was really cute so I got it anyway. I used Graphically speaking cartridge for the butterfly and fabulous. I also used Fabulouse Finds cartridge for the date tag on the top right side. I haven't done the journaling yet. It will go on the blank white papers on the right side.

Create a Critter Bunny card

This was a super simple card to assemble. I used a couple different color cardstock papers on the background, used a Martha Stewart border punch on the top and added a little ribbon. After the base was put together I just added a sentiment from my PaperTrey stamps and stuck my bunny on the top. The Create a Critter cartridge is very easy and quick to use. It has the cutest little animals on it and once they are put together they feel like chipboard because of the layers. I highly recommend this cartridge.

Lucky Duck

Well, what is a weekend without shopping? I went to Michael's Craft Store and bought this cute border punch by EK Success. I had been looking at it for a couple of months because my son loves to play cards, but I kept putting off buying it because there's always so many other things "I need". To my surprise it had been clearanced and marked down. I also had a coupon for 40% off, so of course I had to get it.

Create a Critter Cat Card

This is a quick card I threw together yesterday. When I got my Create A Critter cartridge I couldn't wait to play with it, so I cut out some of the little animals and set them aside. This kitty was one that I had pre-cut and sitting on my desk. All I had to do is add him to the top of the card. I also used the Martha Stewart corner punch and a sentiment from PaperTrey stamps. Very easy.

Water Boy

I am loving my new Cricut cartridges. They're actually older releases that I thought I didn't need, but I have been wrong before. There was a great sale on cartridges with no tax or shipping costs, so I took a second look and couldn't resist.  I used Graphically Speaking for Water Boy and A Child's Year for the date, name and boy with the hose.

Sick Chic

I made this layout of my niece Brianna. She had come over to visit on her birthday and wasn't feeling well. Poor Bri. Not the way you want to spend your birthday. I used Create A Critter for the sun and chick. Stretch Your Imagination for the tree and I used Forever Young for the words sick chic. I also used A Childs Year for Happy Birthday. Wow, I didn't realize until just now how many cartridges I used on this one layout. That's the really nice thing about the Gypsy, you don't have to worry about swapping out cartridges so it makes it much easier to use as many as you want.

16th Birthday Card

This is a birthday card I made for my niece Jasmine. I used the Forever Young cartride for the front and the Childs Year cartridge for the font on the inside. The eyes in the word LOOK are from Graphically Speaking. I thought they were just too cute to pass up.

Arm Wrestling

Scrapbook pages from Christopher's 18th Birthday. He had bet Michael that when he turned 18 he would be able to beat him in arm wrestling. Well, the day finally came and they sat down to fulfill their bet. Christopher was not so happy when at the end he was not the winner.

Wedding Day

What a beautiful day. Our son married his love on May 1st in an awesome garden setting, surrounded by family and friends. We couldn't be more proud of both of them. We lucked out and got the kind of spectacular weather that California is known for. The bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome and the families were crying tears of joy for the new couple. The day was everything a parent could want for their child.
Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
