Valentine Treat Box

Hello everyone! I wanted to try something different today. I fell in love with Mary's valentine treat box over at cardztv. She is so inspirational. So I put my sweet treats cart to work. I love this little box, and it was so quick and easy to make! I cut the box at 3 inches and I cut the strip for the handle at 2x12 inches. Thats it. I embellished with  some silver brads and some pink ribbon. I cut the pink heart out at 2 inches. This box is ready for some yummy treats! I hope you like it!

Truck Birthday Card!

Hi there! Here is a quick card I made for a friend. Her son just turned 4! He loves trucks so I decided to pull out my boy's will be boys cart and make him this card. I used my gypsy to weld together the two trucks. It was pretty easy and super simple. Thanks for stopping by!

Good afternoon! I had a very busy day, but I did find some time to do a little crafting! YAY! I am entering this layout in the Gyso#4 challenge over at Get your sketch on. I just happened to come across this challenge as I was "blog hopping" today. You should check out her page; it's awesome.
I had to cover the picture because my baby didn't have much on. The patterned paper was from a stack I bought from hsn (I think). I got the digi stamp from the cutting cafe. Can I tell you that I am loving their stamps! I got the felt name from ac moore, I love it! I also added some bling and ribbon. This is the first time I used the technique with the ribbon. I have seen it used several times but I never tried it. I like the way it turned out. I still need alot more practice! Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW! I had a blast making this card! First let me say thankyou to Tracey over at Craft Junkie Too. Her wobble card was totally the inspiration for this card! I dusted off my gypsy and went to work. It took SEVERAL cuts because I forgot how to use the thing! :-) But I eventually got it.
I am still fairly new at cardmaking; I am an avid scrapbooker though. I am loving cardmaking more and more, but I promise to get back to my first love.
I cut that cute heart out at 3.5 inches. Background paper is from dcwv. I used the wild card cart to cut the xoxo. I ran the heart through my texture boutique and I finished her off with some stickles, ribbon, and some bling! Thanks for stopping by! PS Thanks Tracey for sharing your awesome card! I am entering this card into Made by Momo's card challenge! You have to make a card using black, white, and hot pink. You also have to use a heart!

Wild Card Cartridge.

Good Morning! Here is a card I made using the wild card cart. I have put off using this cart because to me it seemed a little difficult. I have not mastered the envelope portion of it yet. If anyone has any tips I would greatly appreciate it. I tried to make the envelope with this card but it wouldn't cut at 5 inchces, so I went ahead and just made the card. Hope you like it!

Recipe:Patterned paper from memory keepers stack I found at the dollar store (woo hoo), I cut the card at 5 inches. I cut the frame at 2 inches using the storybook cart. Ribbon was purchased at target. Flower was a great find from a broken picture frame. Stamp set is My Pink Stampers winter punnies.

WOW! What a rough few days here in CT! Here are some pics of  all the snow! We have had sooo much snow! I'm talkin up to 30 inches. School closings and actually being trapped in our house. It was very OVERWHELMING to see and have to shovel all of that. Plus the snow plows just block you back in after all your hard work. So frustrating!

Good Morning!

I made this ballerina card using the Twinkle Toes cartridge! Hope you like it.

I cut out the ballerina at 4 inches! The background paper was mics scraps; I used my new zutter to cut the layers! I love that thing ( thanks to Robyn's bff, Karlee). The ribbon was from target (the dollar bin) and the jewel was from a kit I purchased at Michaels.
Thanks for looking!
