Bloom card

Hi Everyone! Today is Would you ever guess Wednesday with My Cricut Craft Room! That means that we have all made something only using a shift key on a cricut cartridge! Please head on over to Erica's blog to see what the other design team members have made for today. 

  • I cut the card base from Art philosophy at 6 inches - using a paper pattern from Imagine More Cards
  • After cutting the cardbase out, I took the negative flowers and ran then through my sticker maker to make the up side sticky
  • Once the flowers were sticky, I lined them with twine. I used a green twine for the stems, and the pretty colors for the flower portion. I then used a zig glue pen to adhesive them and placed them on the inside of the card so that they line up with the cut out on the front of the card.
  • The last step was to add two sentiment stamps. Both are from Pink by Design Grow stamp set.

A valentine for my valentine!

Hi Everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past week, family comes first and crafting has to come after them. However I was able to get some time in my craft room this weekend to finish up on some valentines cards and projects!

Our challenge for this week for Queen of my Craft Room's design team is to make a card for our spouse, so here is what I made for him! Head on over to join the linking party of your valentine card!

I used a A7 card base and paper from Echo Parks "Yours Truly". I cut the red border paper to be just slightly smaller than the front of the card base, but before attaching it, I actually cut out the center of the paper that would end up being covered so I can use it on another project.

I then cut the "love" paper just slightly larger than the opening of the border paper. Both are attached to the card base with ATG adhesive.

I then cut out the cute little tag that is in the lower right corner from one of the tag pages from the paper kit, and stamped it with a sentiment stamp from Pink by Design's Love Always set. I attached the tag using a pop-dot.

The inside of the card is stamped also with a sentiment from Pink by Design To the Moon set. I realize that it is a little hard to read, but it says "The best part of my day is when you & me become we"

For my projects today, I used Robots Party, Handy Man, Splish Splash and 9 months! Hope you enjoy!

My first project is a cute page I made to celebrate my husband and I buying our fist house! I used Handy Man to cut the house at 2 inches. 

For my second project I used Robots Party to start making the treat bags for my son's upcoming birthday party!

For my third project, I actually ended up with 2 projects when I was all done! I used Splish Splash to cut this really elegant sign to hang in the bathroom. I cut these at "fit to page". I ended up with 2 project because when I cut the "Bath" cut, it cut out the word so I attached that to the background that was cut when cutting the trim for the first sign!  

My final project is a cute card for a good friend who is due later this month with her first baby! She was telling me not long ago how her hubby went out and got her some ice cream late at night for her, so I thought that this would be such a cute card to send her! I used 9 months to cut the saying at 2 inches. I choose not to use the cut out of "ice cream" because of how small it was cut, so I just hand wrote it with a white get pen. The sentiment stamp on the inside is from the Say it Sweet stamp set by Pink by Design.

I hope that you have enjoyed my projects today! Your next stop on the hop is Laura! Also make sure to check back to Erica's blog tomorrow to see day 2 of the hop with 25 new blogs and projects!!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Would you ever guess Wednesday hosted by My Cricut Craft Room! Today we used any cut from a "layer" on a cricut cartridge, but not the main cut. To see other design team members projects for today, head on over to Erica's blog to see what has been made for today!

Today I used my brand new Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out this really cute heart. I love the detail along the edges.

Items used:
  • K & Company card base 
  • Art Philosophy cartridge 
  • pop dots 
  • black memento ink
  • pink card stock
  • Pink by Design stamp sentiment
How to:
  • I started by cutting my heart from Art philosophy at 3 inches 
  • I stamped it with a sentiment from pink by design
  • I attached it to the inside of the card using pop-dots.
