A couple more owls ...

Good Morning!  It's almost the weekend! Can you tell that I'm happy?! We've got a busy one planed with lots of time with friends and family, so why not share a page I just made for some pictures of my neice AJ that I've FINALLY sent to be printed!

I used the Cricut Lite Hoot 'n' Holler Cartridge again ... Super Cute! Over the summer I took some great pictures of her in my parents hot tub making silly faces ... Here's one of them!

So I thought the saying "You're a hoot!" would be perfect for her silly little self!

I few metallic rhinestone like accents give the frames for the pictures a little something extra!

And of course, the owls!

I hope you like my newest page, as I'm REALLY trying to get back in my crafting groove!

Happy Crafting!

A Trip to the Beach

Hey Everyone! With the temperatures around here lately you'd never know it's almost October! It's only a matter of time before all the leaves begin to change, so let's take one last trip to the beach!

A friend of mine who doesn't scrap book and always gives the look at different events (which means can you scrap book this for me!) went to the beach with her son over the summer and here's a page I made to go into the book I've started for her!

The "Sand" paper was from a DCWV Photo stack from forever ago! The boarder punch was an EK Success find at Michael's that I picked up and scanned for "ha ha's" that ended up being on clearance for 3.99! BONUS!

Finally the waves were made on my Gypsy from the Life's a Beach cartridge and then filled with a pattern from one of my Imagine cartridges and printed out in 2 different sizes, then layered with thin pop dots to give it some dimension.

I'm really excited about how this page came out ... I like the fact that it's simple, just enough to be fun but not take away from the pictures!

Hope you enjoyed!

Happy Crafting!

You're a hoot!

Wow! 2 posts in 1 day! I think I may finally be back ... although I'd better not hold my breath!
Here is a card made from the Hoot 'n' Holler Cricut Lite Cartridge that I got not too long ago!

I LOVE owls! Ok, let me re-phrase that, I'm not obsessed with them by any means, but I think they make cute cards! As you can see I took out the Cuttlebug and ran the brown background through the basic dots folder.

The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and is super cute!

I also went crazy with pop dots because I thought that it would look better if the card had a little dimension ... usually a card like this will still mail with normal postage because the dots will squish down when put through the sorter ... but now that I've said this, I'm sure I've jinxed myself!

So there you have it, super fast and lots of fun!

I hope you all get a chance to do something that you haven't had much time for today whatever that may be!

Happy Crafting!


Technical Help!

Ok, I need some technical help!

Although I haven't been blogging, I have been following all the fabulous ladies and gents that I always have ... but I'm having a problem!

Whenever I go to post a comment it says that I don't have access to do so and then lists my e-mail in ( ).   It tells me to sign out and sign back in, so I do and still no luck!

Any ideas??!!


Happy Sunday, and a couple new cartridges!

I hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing Sunday, I know I am!  Today is the first day in I don't know how long that I've actually been able to craft up in my room and now I'm even getting some blogging in!

Here are 2 cartridges that my friend Sue-Ann scooped up at Walmart over the summer for $20 each

I was obviously very excited about my Cricut Rewards ... although I don't know why because I still have never actually "bought" anything with them!

I love that the Lite Cartridges come with this card that shows the different layers that you need to cut in a quicker, less messy way than the regular books do! I can't wait to work on a project using these!

So with that said, make sure that you're checking out your local Walmarts, because they're always randomly putting cartridges on clearance! And another tip ... take the cartridge to the scanner because sometimes they're marked down more then the price tag says!

Hope everyone has a fabulous Sunday!

Happy Crafting!
