Trick or Treat Lolli pop Holders

Got this idea from Dawn. You can see her version here..

Back black piece is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 . I made a normal card and then cut it so that the card is smaller and there was room for the lolli pop. I stamped the spiders and the Trick or Treat saying. The mummy is from paper doll dress up cartridge. Thanks for looking!

Trick or Treat! Altered starbucks jar

I altered this starbucks jar for some craft fairs coming up. One down.. 24 more to go! I was able to fit 10 pieces of candy inside. The witch was from A Childs Year cartridge. I embossed it with my cuttlebug. I made the pumpkin on top by following happileighscrappin's tutorial on her blog (link below). I didn't have an oval scallop pumch though so I used my circle scallop punch. Turned out ok I think. I used pipe cleaner for the stem and martha stewart branch punch for the leafy stuff.


Thanks for looking!

Chase Your Dreams

Just got my A Childs Year cricut cartridge from Oh My Crafts! I love this card. The sentiment says "Chase Your Dreams You Might Catch One". Its from a clear stamp set I got at Joanns. I cut the girl in black, the shadow in pink and then cut the girl again in a pink and orange stripe paper so I could use it for the kite. Thanks for looking!

Rock On in the Rocky Economy!

I put together this basket and sign for work. Every year to raise money all the departments in my office each put together their own basket for a united way raffle. I did a "30 Rocks" basket for my sister in law for her birthday and was inspired by that. Our United Way raffle basket consists of an Ipod, Ipod speakers, School of Rock on DVD, Hard Rock Cafe gift card, Itunes gift card, Pop Rocks and Rock Candy. The sign is 17x22 inches. The letters are from George & Basic Shapes. The guitar and the stars are from Indie Art. I also added alittle big of bling to the sign and then stickled them. After I put the cellophane around the basket I used a mini star punch and punched out a bunch in black, purple and blue and then hot glued them to the basket. Thanks for looking! I hope I win my own basket :)

Here is a close up of the sign..

And the finalized basket..

Even more cards..

I've been on a roll lately with cards! I usually make more 3d items then just cards.

I found the idea for this card on the cricut message board. I can't remember who's idea it was and I can no longer find the post :( Anyways whoever it was THANK YOU! I think it is such a cute idea! The strawberrys are from Indie Art and then I used the cuttlebug for their wedding outfits.

I made this card for Okie's 9/9 challenge. I used the storybook cartridge for the scallop square and scallop oval. You can check out the challenge here.. This card was inspired by sketch #2. http://www.cricut.com/messageboard/tm.aspx?m=5244388

I used Storybook cart for the scallop circle and the circle branch frame for this card. The butterflys are a martha stewart punch.

I used the watermellon from Doodlecharms on this card.

This card I used storybook for both the frame and "birthday girl"

Love Birds

I made this card using 3 cartridges. I cut out the tree from Stretch Your Imagination. I then cut off all the leaves. I cut out the heart from George and Basic Shapes and cut out the birds from Joys of the Season. I then pop dotted the whole tree. The saying is individual letter stamps that I colored in and stickled. Thanks for looking.

New cards!

Here are some new cards. I scraplifted this first card from www.molly-groovygurl.blogspot.com
I used a 1 3/4 inch circl punch to create the neck, sides and the bikini bottom leg spots.
This card I used Joys of the Season. I cut the reindeer at 3 1/2 inches. I used DCWV Luxury stack paper.
I also used Joys of the season and DCWV luxurk stack on this card. I cut one of the trees out in blackout and then cut out 16 1 inch snowflakes which I layered on top of the tree.

Here is a close up...

Halloween Album

This is a mini halloween album that I made. Most embellishments were from the PPDU cartridge. The pages are 6x6 and the last page is 6x9. I used my bind it all to bind all the pages together. Thanks for looking!

Tuesday, September 1, 2009


I saw this idea on the bind it all blog and just had to try it out. I used an 8x8 zutter chipboard as the backing. Covered it in paper and then cut out things from my cricut. I then punched the holes at the bottom with my bind it all and put the coils through without tightening them. I then punched two holes in the top and ran my ribbon through them. The bird is from Home Accents, the key is from Indie Art and the font is All Mixed Up. Thanks for looking!

Here is a close up..
