Have a Grape Birthday!

I made this card using a free digital stamp from Sliekje.  I colored her with Copics and added Glossy Accents to the grapes.  I added flowers I made with the Cricut cart Flower Shoppe.  It's such a great cart!  I usually tend to make more flowers than I need so that I can have extras waiting to be used on projects in quick notice.  The leaves were from some flower I tore apart.  The papers are from Glitz and Stampin Up.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

A quick Birthday Card

The outside of the card is made using a Doodle Dragons digi stamp and colored with copics.

The inside of the card was made using a Sliekje digi stamp and colored with copics also.

I love the discovery of digi stamps!

I used Groovy Times Cricut cartridge to make this card.

A great way to use up some of the thousands of brads we all have!

Have a great day!

Marcy's Mini

Hello everyone!

I have been without internet access for a couple of months, but I am back!  I have been making lots of things, just not able to post them.  Today, I will begin posting those creations!  So to start, I thought I'd start BIG!

This is a Hidden binding system, paper bag mini-album.  Wow, say that fast three times!  I learned how to do this on YouTube, of course!  The video is the best way to see this mini.  There would be too many photos to put on here.

Here is a list of the Cricut cartridges that I used: Hello Kitty Font, Home Accents, Home Decor, Mother's Day Bouquet, Cricut Essentials, Pagoda, Sophie, Southwest, Birthday Bash, Cindy Loo, French Manor.

You will note that the video mentions the CricutFanatics blog that I used to design for.  As I could not contact anyone or get online, I did not realize it was dissolving.  So sad!  Debbie did an amazing job with that blog!  I also just discovered I need to update my Cricut Circle status!  That's gone too!

Enjoy the video and all its quirks.  It took me 2 hours to upload!  Crazy!  Try a hidden binding mini, they are lots of fun!

 Have a wonderful day!

Happy Father's Day!

I made this card for my hubby for Father's Day.  I only used a mat for the inside.   I used my Cricut and Elegant Edges to make it.  I keep a bag of extra cuts in a large folder and just reach for one when I need something quickly.

I used Stampin Up, Making Memories and DCWV papers.  I added a doily that I bought a dollar store and sprayed with different Copic markers to get the color combo I wanted.  The "Dad" is from Soft Spoken.  I added some Webster's Pages and Simple Story stickers, some brads and of course Bling!  I sewed a couple of layers to make it feel more complete.

On the inside, I added Washi tape to the inside to cover up the sewing.  It makes it look a lot nicer!  I then added some of the extra sticker pieces, a mat with a SU! sentiment and I was done!
The card just kept growing and growing from a very basic idea.
