Challenge Me Monday #96

Hello Everyone,

                                                                   Valentiny Cards!

                                      Create a 3"x 3" card for Valentine's Day
As always, there needs to be Cricut cut on your project.

I created my 3 x 3 card out of craft card stock. I cut a heart out of the center of the card using MCT's heart stitched die and I also cut one out of cream CS for the inside of the card. I also used MCT's teeny tags greeting and die. (sweet friend) I then cut the cupid from the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge at 2.75 and layered the heart on top. I also cut out the scallop from the Accent Essentials Cart at .40. It was so much fun making this card.I also colored the arrow with a clear gelly roll pen and did some black stitch lines around the card along with distressing the edges with vintage photo. My pictures aren't the greatest but I am working on trying to take better ones.

Hope you enjoyed,

Peachy Challenge 01 :: Pockets

Hello Everyone,


Create a project with a pocket! 
Whether it folds, tucks, or hides a treat,
pockets are a fun way to add something extra!
Here is my entry
I cut out the heart box on the Tags Bags and Boxes Cricut Cartridge.I cut it in half (see picture below) and attached flaps to card to form a pocket. I stuck a treat in the pocket (sorry you can't see that in the picture).
The base of the card is 4.25 X 5.5. The brown CS was run through the large dots cuttlebug folder. I used the PKK-05 Happy Lashes face stamp for the heart. I finished it off with Emma's Teeny Tag Greeting and die.

 If you can see the dotted pencil lines are where I cut this in half.

 This is the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hello Everyone,

I am entering MCT Challenge.

*** This challenge is a SPORTS CHALLENGE! Use any sports cartridge you have & if you don't own any sports theme carts, just use anything you have & just make sure it has something to do w/sports!:)
***Make a card, layout or anything you want!!!

Here is my card, I used the Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cartridge. This cartridge is wonderful, every time I use it I see more and more things I can do with it. 

My card is quite large I decided to go with a 6 x 6 base. I cut the images out at 5.25, did some stitching and added a Peachy Keen face stamp.

Valentine Beaded Matchbook Style Mini

Hello Everyone,

 It has been a while since I posted a video. With Christmas and everything (making presents) I ran out of time.  I always think I am prepared and then I decide I want to do more and more. Boy am I glad Christmas is always the 25th because then I have to stop and have Christmas and I just stop trying to do more for Christmas. Well here is my video, I made a mini book for  Valentines Day. I followed the pattern that Laura From Following the Paper Trail put up. Here is the link to Laura's video on her blog post:

Here are a few pictures: I used the paper pack from Recollections, Love Letters.

 Here is the cover.... not quite finished with embellishing it.
Bye for now,
