NOT cricut but none the less.. just as cute as ever...

I used the round cardboard "thingy"  that you can put cakes on inside of boxes..  This was for a baby shower that I was going to.  I just used my patterned paper that I had that coordinated with the baby shower theme.  I used bling on the baby toes and on/around the letters and board.  Stickers were used for the ribbon in middle and the feet.  Chipboard white letters (can't remember who made them.. had 'em a while).  I topped these off with the Matte Modge podge.  After we were done with the cupcakes and the cake, we just wiped them off and mama to be took them home.  NOW.. you could hang these up (cuter in person) or use them on a dresser.

wedding favor boxes made for wedding with picture of bride and groom

Card stock here is Amethyst from Close to my Heart. I used Key Lime as well & Silver.  These were the colors of the wedding.  it was very pretty.

On page 121 of the TAGS BAGS BOXES & MORE I made the box with the heart at 6in. (created on the Design Studio 2 to a 12x12 mat)  I then used the cuttlebug (can't remember 5x7 embossing folder name) I believe it was from a love set.  I sanded the embossed area and slightly inked with another color in wedding party.  I inked the heart area silver.

I was able to print out on my computer 2x2 pictures and then a slight trim around edges to fit.

In my print shop I was able to print out a thank you from the bride and groom.  Torn around edges and inked slightly with the silver.  It went on the opposite side of the Bride and Groom picture.

VINYL craze.... printing 101 and sports mania was used

I have changed this a few times. Moved the Black Eagle up a little further.. and corrected the derby Haysville as it looks slanted just a tad...  I am having a VINYL craze and making tons.. well at least they are in progress awaiting the actual vinyl to arrive.  This one sits on my back window.  
Jayden attends TaeKwonDo and loved seeing all these cars with "sport" and such.. so why not join in....

I just LOVE this cartridge! I used #1 image for the lady as well as using misc scraps for her outfit. I used the Mother's Day seasonal cartridge for Happy Mothers Day images 29 & 39 on CTMH CS (black & cranberry). Bling from CTMH is on the edging and on her top for 'buttons". left over paisleys from the earlier projects (that i messed up on became left overs) and this was used on the card too. CTMH cranberry ink was used to kinda spice up the background. I have many more Mothers day cards to go...This was fun!

This was defintely not hard deciding what "style" to use for the challenge of out of my comfort zone for 2 reasons: 1) just images on paper and small saying & 2) it is pasleys. not just into paisleys..
I used the Cricut Holiday Cake cartridge on #17 pad at 4inches. Paper used was CTMH b&t and CS.
Saying was a left over rub-on trhat says I Miss You. My friend will like this card...

Flower card #10 PS project

I made this flower card which looks better in person than the way it scanned :( At 4inches and using the Holiday Cakes cartridge with #12 on the key pad. paper used was CTMH B&T paper from Groovy Blossoms. Saying is left over Rub on's (Family begins and ends with family) and finishing with pretty pink ribbon from SU.
