I created this cute polka dotted pink purse for my niece’s birthday. It’s the perfect size to hold a gift card. I used designer paper that had the polka dots on it and then used my Stickles to fill in random circles with a white glitter. I’m entering this project into Emma’s Polka Dot Imagine Nation challenge on My Creative Time. I do not have an Imagine <yet> so I created it using my regular Cricut and a Making the Cut file. Hope you enjoy.
Erin has an awesome challange to do a sassy card. Here is what I came up with. This is the first project I did on my new Gypsy. I’m getting the hange of it =) This is also my first tent card. Since Erin was having so much fun doing tent cards, I decided to give it a try.
I used the Rock Princess cart along with my iRock, Stickles, and Nesting Flowers die. I also used a bunch of my scraps to make the sassy girl. I tried to force myself on this project to used as many of my scraps as possible. I inked the edges of just about all pieces. There are a lot of little pieces to this girl. I used my computer for the sentiment and then cut it out with a nesting flower die on my Cuttlebug.
I made this layout of my youngest daughter. Two of my daughters do competitive gymnastics. They practice 3 to 4 times a week for three hours each practice all year long. Gymnastics takes a lot of dedication and a lot of hard work. I’m constantly inspired by them and the progress they make!
Peachy Keen’s Let’s Face It Friday Challenge is to create a LO or card of your muse. My children are my muse! I used four of the Everyday Character faces on this LO. The LO is done in the gym colors and with the gym’s theme. I thought this picture of my youngest daughter goofing off on the bars was cute.
Yeah, I cannot get that song out of my head now too…lol. Mary over at Cardz TV is having a Cricut’less’ challenge. The challenge is to create a card not using your Cricut but entirely from a paper stack. Wow, now that’s a real challenge. I love my Cricut so it’s hard not to use it on a project. The Paper Cutz challenge this week is to create a card using three patterned papers. The two challenges fit together nicely. So, I’m still lovin Halloween and wanted to create another Halloween card. I took out my paper stacks and really loved the witches potion supplies page. So, I cut a bunch of them out along with some other paper in that stack. Outside of some adhesive, glitter, and ink, this card is entirely made of a paper stack, a black piece of cardstock, and a cream piece of cardstock. This card is all “old school.” Everything was cut using scissors and a paper trimmer — no Cricut, no punches, no Cuttlebug, no dies, no stamps. I just love how this card came out. Thanks Mary for another great challenge.

I thought I’d try my hand at digi stamps with my watercolor pencils. Everyone over at Peachy Keen stamps are creating such cute pumpkin cards with ther new stamp sets and I wanted to do one too — except the stamps were just announced yesterday on their blog hop and I needed to do a card tonight. So I searched the net and found this cute pumpkin. I used my Everyday Character Peachy Keen face stamps on the pumpkins. I’ve been doing a lot of Halloween cards so I decided to do a Thanksgiving card this time. I love how these colors turned out!
I’m entering this card in the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge #37. Wish me luck.
