I cannot believe Valentines Day is just two weeks away. Here is Valentines Day card I made today. I just love this Jillie Bean Valentine mini collection that is available on My Scrap Chick. I just upload the SVGs into my Sure Cuts A Lot and cut it out on my Cricut. The sentiment is from Pink by Design. Have a Totally Twisted Time!

Hi everyone! Hope you all found some awesome Black Friday deals. I know I scored at JoAnns (Nestibilities, DCWV & Recollection stacks, Cricut cartridges, and jewelry making supplies) and at Michaels (DCWV stacks, Jewelry beads, Cuttlebug quilled kits, Recollection bling and embellishments). I couldn’t believe the deals when you took advantage of the regular sales of 40% to 50% off and then another 25% to 30% on top of that. I was getting $20 items for $7! Oh, just in case you are wondering, I did pick up some non-crafty deals at other stores…lol.
All that craft shopping put me in the mood to craft. So I designed a card for Peachy Keen’s Sketch with a Twist. Since the Cricut Craft Room is open, I thought I’d give it another try. I tried it when it was in beta but it just kept crashing. This time I had no problems designing my card. However, it all went down hill when I tried to print and cut with my Imagine <sighs>. It would print but no matter what I did, it wouldn’t cut. I need to do some research to see if anyone else has had that problem and how they fixed it. If you have any guidance, please leave a comment. I’d really love to see how the CCR is working for you. I think the CCR will be great once I get past this cutting hurdle.
So, here is my Card. It was a real challenge but by sticking with the paper pallet in the Mr. Frosty Imagine cartridge helped keep the color scheme in check. I used the adorable PK-M21 Donna Rae Penguin. I used my Copics to color him in and then paper pierced him with paper from the Mr. Frosty cartridge. I couldn’t help but bling it all up to put the final touches on it.
Here are shots of my design in CCR. The blocks on the right were for the paper piercing of the hat and vest. I wasn’t sure which pattern I was going to use so I printed a few different ones. Since it wouldn’t print, I wound up using my Nestibilities instead of the ovals in the design.
Here is one of the papers after printing/cutting it my my Imagine. This was my second try. As you can see, it printed but didn’t cut. =(

I have a really cute card for you today. The adorable bear snowboarder came from My Scrap Chick. Isn’t she the cutest!! The card was created for one of my daughter’s friends who celebrated her 14th birthday. I was under strict rules from my daughter not to use pink….lol. This card could easily be converted to a very cute Christmas card.
I used my favorite face stamps – Peachy Keen PK-135 Medium Bear Facial Features. This card wouldn’t been the same without such a cute face. I colored in the face with my Copics. Then I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the snowflakes in a piece of white card stock. The top and bottom borders are from the DCWV Christmas stack. I finished it off with some bling. Enjoy!
Happy Easter everyone !!! Thought I would share with you the Easter basket I made for my daughter’s gymnastic sister. The bunny is the same cut as the one on my previous card post. The bunny is so cute that I had to make another project with it. The basket is from Michaels. Hope you all have a wonderful day.
I made this super cute Easter card for the Peachy Keen sketch challenge #49. This one was a little difficult at first, but once I cut out all the squares, it came together nicely. The cut is from Treasure Box Designs and I cut it using my Sure Cuts A Lot.

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.
Here is a cute birthday card I did for one of my daughter’s friends. Her favorite animal is a cow and her nick name is Mary Moo Cow. So, putting a cow on it was a must. I couldn’t resit to bling out his nose. lol. The light pink paper is open card stock that I Cuttlebuged. The cow I created using Make The Cut. This was the first cut file I made. Not too shabby.
