I have a really fun Birthday Card using the Cuttlebug and Cricut stars from the Old West Cricut Cartridge. One of our best friends recently turned 50, and his wife and family threw him a Harley Davidson themed birthday party. Read more »
I recently learned how to make Tri-Fold Shutter Cards, so I made them for my Mom and Mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. I participated in online challenges for National Scrapbook day on the Obsessed with Scrapbooking facebook page. Debbie O’Neal at Scrap Me Quick Designs shared the directions on how to make this great card. Once you know how to cut the paper and the sizes, it’s really very easy! Read more »
The Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge seems to sneak it’s way into lots of my cards lately. To make the most of the wonderful shapes that it offers, I print the digistamp onto white X-Press It cardstock. Read more »
I thought I’d bring you a bright and cheery Create A Critter Card on this nasty, rainy day. This silly lion from the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge is the perfect way to send Birthday wishes. I cut the lion at 3″ using black as the base. The papers are retired from Stampin’ Up, and were great for a child’s birthday card. The label punch and “Happy Birthday Wishes” stamp are also from Stampin’ Up. I added an orange dotted ribbon tied in a knot to finish it off. I’m entering this card into the following challenge: Cut It Up Challenges
Who doesn’t love cute little dogs? Especially if they are in a basket with pretty spring flowers! This cute images is from Robyn’s Fetish. I colored it with Copic Markers, and I realized that I need more shades of browns. I’m still working on shading. It takes a lot of patience, and even more practice! I would love to take a class, but there aren’t any near here. I think I may try an online class when the weather gets too hot to be outside. Read more »
Have you used your Copic Markers to make backgrounds? I was playing around with my Copic Markers on day, and seeing which colors blend well. I tried different combinations of similar shades, from very light, to bright.

Sunsets and scenes are so much fun to make with Copic Markers. If you’re a Copic expert, I’m sure you’ve done this a million times, but I’m fairly new, and I was amazed! My Mom had these great stamps with Canada Geese on them. We’re in Wildlife Country, USA, so ducks, geese, and other wildlife are very popular here. Read more »
The Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge has so many great characters, and one of the most is fun is this cute leprechaun perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day Card. I could have cut him smaller, but I don’t like fiddling with tiny pieces and he’s so funny…why not make him big! Read more »
A couple of weeks ago, I started working on some St. Patrick’s Day Projects using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge. I had some St. Patrick’s Day designer paper that I’ve had for years. It’s very class looking with celtic patterns and tiny shamrocks. There is also a coordinating print that is light blue and green.
