City Life

This is a card that I made for my sisters birthday last November. I used Graphically Speaking for the works and  Plantin School book for the city scape and Sweetheart Amoureux for the glasses to add the details to the card. I made the olive with two circles inside each other since I could not find an olive on the carts that I have. I really like the shiny black paper I used for the city scape I made the night sparkle. Let me know what you think.

Thank you,

Just a thank you...

 This is a card that I made for the office secretary at school to say thank you for all that she does for me.

I cut the card at 5' with DCWV Tajmahl paper stack. ( Love this stack)
The lady and desk black out was cut at 3' and the pink lady (he, he) was cut at 3' also.
This is the inside note:

I used the Sentimentals cartridge. The hand and feather  was cut at 3'. I colored in her nails with a stamp pen. The white space was cut at a size I don't remember. She really loved this card. I hope you all do too :)

 Thank you,

Happy Birthday

This is a card I made for a co worker's birthday. I love to make cards and brighten up their day. We are teachers so we need a little joy and sunshine in our lives.

I used my Expression Hello Kitty cart to cut out the cupcake at 3'. I used pop dots to white icing and dots of glue on top and added Martha Stewart glitter to the top for sprinkles.
I cut the gifts out at 1 1/2'. I can't remember what cart I used. I will have to get back to you all on that one.

Hello all,
 Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog.
I made these cute invitations for my nephews second birthday in a month.He calls Cars Car Cars. I got the idea from Joy, Christmas with the Cricut on YOUTUBE. So, THANK YOU JOY. I changed the measurements to fit my own dimensions.

I used the Cricut Expression Cars cart, along with my SCAL (sure cuts a lot ).
The black base of the car and its red body were cut at 2 1/4' on the crucut
the small details such as the white windows, the yellow flame, orange number, brown rim, and red inside of the car were all cut at 2 1/4' in proportion to the car using the expression features.
The black base of the card was cut at 11X 5 1/2 ' and scored at 1/2', 4.75', and 8'.
The two yellow slider parts were cut at3 1/2' X 5 1/2'

The red and white star were cut at 2' using SCAL basic shape file
The wording Kennedy 2nd Birthday was cut at 2' and welded together with SCAL
The yellow road strips were cut at about 1/2' with scraps from the yellow slider

The red and white dotted ribbon was cut at 11' using a eyelit and CropaDile to hold in place.

New to this

Hello all,

 I am new to this blogging thing so work with me. I have been scrapbooking for about 5 years creating scrapbooks and baby albums for friends. I scrapbook to express my creativity and to work off the stress that comes with the daily life. I am expanding my knowledge about paper crafting and want to use this as my outlet. I love, love, love scrapbooking and making things to make people smile.My friends, family and coworkers tell me I'm very creative so I figured that this would be the next step and to create a blog. I hope that you take something away from my blog to inspire you to unleash your creativity. I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to stop by and see what I have made and tell me what you think. :)
