Crate Paper

When I first saw the Lemongrass line by Crate Paper, I could not wait to get my hands on it, and scrap these photos of my pets staring out the window at the baby squirrel feeding on our window ledge. Aren't they cute??

Wall of Fame

I have created new LO's for my Wall of Fame (which is what I am calling it now) I scrapped last years New Years Eve Party photos just in time for tomorrow's party (same people invited) I hope they enjoy it as much as I did creating it. Happy New Year!!!!

Another cricut creation

I just love the endless possibilities of vinyl. I created this for my DH who is a die-hard hunter. I need a better plate stand but for now this will do. This is the brown vinyl on an 11" plate.

How exciting!!

I have been working in my office all day today. As I took a break to read through the mail, I opened a Christmas Card send from my friend Dawn. And how excited was I, to see her rendition of a card I taught at my Christmas Card Crop last month. She did a wonderful job, and I am so proud!! Thanks Dawn!

Wall Display

I saw something like this on another site. I do not have a nice long wall space, so I made do, with the space I had. These are curtain rod's, and cute rings with clips. It will be nice to change up the LO's. I just used those for spacing while putting up the rods. I think I will create some festive Christmas ones for this week.
Oh, and I still have unscrapped photos from last New Years Eve party. I will have to get them scrapped and have them displayed for this years party. What fun this will be!!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa, brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him, "Hi Santa, " I said.
"You know....good little girls, Should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, And now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited, To see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look, In this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly, And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim, As he put it in gear.
"You've got enough crap,
I'll see you next year!"

Place Card / Photo Holder

The Be Merry paper was so cute, I just had to create something else with it. This is a 1 1/4" binder clip.

Clothespin Class

I just love the MME Be Merry papers! This was from a Nov. class I taught. Everyone learned how to alter the "Diane 5" Clothespin" and I know its hard to see in the photo but they also got to experiment with "Glossy Accents" which made the trees so shiny and gave them a little "pop"

Thank You Totes

I was asked on a Thursday to make 15 of these Thank You Totes with matching Post-it holders. And of course they needed them the next day. I was up a little longer than I thought I would be, but I got them all finished!

"Not Square Layout"

What a fun challenge this was to do. I had to create a "Not Square" layout. I love this picture of the girls.

Some Christmas projects from last year.

I designed this with CDS, used the multi-cut, and that was the end of that blade. Thank goodness PC came out with the deep blade!

Happy Mothers Day Boquets

I created these for a friend who was re-decorating her kid's bathroom. They matched the shower curtain, rug and accessories perfectly!
