JME Creations Design Team Post! A Little Pink And Brown!

Another DT post with color!
PINK and BROWN anyone?

This was not the project I started, 
but it is the project I finished.
It actually came together pretty quickly 
and I love my finished product.

My sentiment is "Card Chatter" from CTMH.
I found some old paper flowers laying around and added some cute buttons in the middle.
I used my Best Of 2010 cart for my butterfly
and doodled a little bit to take up some negative space.

Don't forget to pop on over to JME Creations to check out everyone's posts!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Susana!

This card again has a lot of firsts for me. 
This is my first step card
 and my first time using Copics (For the most part)
I think I need some advice before I tackle this type of card again.

This is where I need your help.  
I pretty much just winged it for the measurements of this card.
Can anyone share with my some accurate measurements?

As for my super foxy Whimsy Stamp

Luscious Linda

I am taking some Copic Classes in the beginning of the year!
I can't wait to learn how to really use my markers!

My cupcakes are Teresa Collins stamps
that I scored on Scrapbook Steals!
I love them!

Making this card was both fun and challenging.  
I do think it turned out pretty cute for my first attempt. 
I hope you all had a nice weekend!

JME Creations Design Team Post! The Orange Circle!

For this DT post we were to make a project with an ORANGE circle.
It could be anywhere anyhow as long as there is an ORANGE circle.

I won a gift card to Pink By Design.
I bought the "Just Breath" set. 
When I saw this sentiment I knew right away what I wanted to do.

Here is my hot air balloon card.  
I didn't have a Cricut cart with a hot air balloon, 
so I used my Tis the Season cart and turned an ornament into my balloon.
I through in some clouds with a silver lining because who doesn't want a silver lining!

As you can see my balloon has two and half ORANGE circles.
I hope you enjoyed my post today.

To make this totally cute card I used Recollections card stock, 
Imaginisce flowers and bling
My most favorite is the corset stamp from The Rubber Cafe!
I stamped it on black card with The Rubber Cafe's Scrap Happy Glue.
(Super awesome Scrap Happy Glue)
I used the Rubber Cafe's You're So Fine Glitter to rub over the stamped corset
once the glue was tacky.
 The pictures don't do this card justice.  
The corset really did turn out amazing!
Thank you Rubber Cafe for the tips and ideas!

Tips for Tuesday! Guest Tipper!!

Cricut Tricks and Tips
Make sure you check out her blog and show her some love!

Do you like the look of a shadow, 
but the font you have chosen on your Cricut cartridge doesn't have a shadow?  

Just cut out 2 of the same letter or word, 
the same size in different colors and layer them together.  
Pull the top one to one side or the other just a little so it looks like a shadow.  

  Easy fix for a big problem.  Hope you enjoy my tip. 

Thanks Alisha for tipping on my blog!
Have a crafty day!

Happy Anniversary 2011

Happy Anniversary 2011
5 years
11 if you count it all!

I like to take a picture every year on our anniversary so my husband and I have something to look back on. 
This ended up being one of my favorite layouts. 
It's 100% Fancy Pants from the "it's the little things" collection.

I love you dear!

Tips for Tuesday!

Recharge your Cricut Mats!

My crafty buddies Alisha and Kacee shared with me an awesome tip
on how to make your Cricut mats sticky again.

I had no idea you could use your Jumbo Zig Pen
to make your mat sticky again!
Just rub the glue all over your mat, 
let it sit over night 
All is right with your Cricut mat!

FYI:  If your machine is still under warranty this will void the warranty.  
Thanks girls for the money saving tip!
