Did you notice the super cute bears on the Valentines Day card I made for my hubby from my post a couple days ago? The bears are from Treasure Box Designs (TBD). They have the most adorable cut files for sale! You can use your Cricut and Make the Cut or Sure Cuts a Lot software to cut the files or you can print them on your printer and cut them by hand. I use my Cricut and the Make the Cut software. I just bought their Easter collection and cannot wait to create projects from them. Here is another example of their awesome work! OMG, it’s so darn cute!
I just love their cut files. They are super easy to use. And guess what? They are having a 60% off sale right now. What a great time to give them a try! Just head on over to http://www.treasureboxdesigns.com/ and check them out! They also have a FB page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Treasure-Box-Designs/139849749400237.
Happy Saturday everyone! It’s sunny outside and most of the snow has melted — finally! What a great day to make a sunny card! My youngest daughter needed a birthday card for one of her best friends and I wanted to do a challenge over at Cardz TV so I combined the two of them and came up with this card. Mary’s challenge was to create something springy. So I created this card with my Imagine (only my second project using it) and the Best Friends cartridge. I still need to work on the calibration of the print and cut on my Imagine so if anyone has any suggestions, I would LOVE to hear them. The further down on my page it prints and cuts, the more it is off alignment vertically.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day. My husband spoiled me with flowers, jewelry, chocolate, and dinner. He’s such a loving husband! I wanted to share with you the card I made him. The bears are cut files from Treasure Box Designs and the heart is a basic shape from Make the Cut. The cardstock is from DCWV.
Hi everyone! I’m so super excited to share this post with you for it is my Guest Designer spot for the Pink Cricut! Thank you Sarah for selecting me as one of your guest designers!!! I just love your Pink by Design stamps!!
Before I get to my project, let me tell you a little about myself. I’m a working mom of 3 beautiful daughters and have a loving and DH. I couldn’t be more proud of them! I live in Pennsylvania and am soooo ready for winter to be over already In my spare time, I like to digital scrapbook and paper craft. I have a computer background so I first started out creating digital scrapbooks of my children with Adobe Photoshop Elements. Then last summer I was introduced to the Cricut and so my paper crafting love began. I immediately bought my first Cricut, started my blog, and started recording craft videos. What I like to paper craft the most is cards.
And now for my project, I just love the Pink by Design stamps! The sentiments are awesome. I used the Be Mine set. Don’t you just love these sayings! You can purchase them on the Pink by Design Store.
