Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! Here is a card I made using my Gypsy! It also using paper from My Mind's Eye and the Jolly Holiday cart. Hope you like it!

Have a great day :)


Coaster Banner

Happy Sunday everyone! It is cold here, brrr! What better to do than scrapbook and make some cards!
Here is a banner I made from the chipboard coasters from Michaels in their $1 section. I made the banner for a fellow teacher. She's having a little boy due in March.
I didn't take any pictures of the full banner but below, you'll find pictures of the card I made to go along with the present. I used the New Arrival cartridge to make the rattle and added some buttons as accents. The background paper comes from PapertreyInk.
Enjoy and have a great day!


Altoid Mini

Here is a mini album that I made using an altoid tin. Mary over at, hosted a mini album blog hop and this is similar to the mini album she created. I didn't take any pictures, but if you'd like to see some please let me know. I tried my best to give good instructions on how to make it, but Mary has a great video (cardcrazy09 on YT) showing how she made hers as well. Hope you enjoy this mini, I know I had a great time making them!

Have a great day!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for a while. We've been preparing for the Winter Program at school so it was a very busy week.
Here is a quick circle card I made using my Gypsy!! I was so excited to get this early Christmas gift! I used the Jolly Holiday Cricut Lite cartridge for this project. Have I told you how in love I am with this cart? Hope you like this card and check back this weekend because I have videos ready but my DH has to edit them :) Since we're having blizzard like conditions here, he should have plenty of time to complete them!
Have a great day!

Episode 20-Jolly Holiday with Action Wobblers

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and found lots of great deals on Black Friday :)
Here is my latest creation. I used the new Cricut Lite cartridge, Jolly Holidays. I also used one of my samples of Action Wobblers! These are so much fun and I can't for them to hit the market. I forgot to add the bow in the video, but the pictures show the card with the bow.
Hope you enjoy the card! Have a great day :)

Episode 15-New Arrival

First of all, I can't believe it's already November! Where has 2010 gone?!? Although I love Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, I am not looking forward to another Nebraska winter (unless it includes a snow day or two of course).
Here is a quick video showing a card I made for a baby shower. I used New Arrival Cricut Cartridge for this one. I hope you enjoy the card.
Have a great day :)

(I do mention it in the video, but I had to make the card again because my first video was way too long. The pictures below are from the card I originally made so there are some changes but all in all they are the same.) Thanks again for visiting :)

Episode 10- Sour Cream Container

Happy Monday everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! Here is a very quick video showing a sour cream treat container. Hope you enjoy it...although I'm sure to most of you, it's not anything new.

My son is turning 2 on the 21st of this month and we're having his party this weekend! Below are pictures of the invitations that were sent to his guests! We're having a generic ABC party for the theme with primary colors so it should be fun! The inside has a poem from the book "Chicka, Chicka Boom, Boom" I just changed the words a little.

I used Stretch Your Imagination, and Learning Curve to create the card.

Have a great day everyone!
