Birthday Card

Hi! I made this card for a friend, who's daughter is turning five. I found this K and Company paper at Target a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with it instantly. I love the vintage circus feel...are there alligators in the circus? Anyway, this is a "Cricut Free" card, which means anyone can make it! 

For more detailed info about the card please watch the video below!

Note Cards and Gift Box

So... I love making these, they are great for gifts. I made the cards with the Storybook Cricut Cart, DCWV Spring Stack, Bazzil Card stock, and a bit of ribbon. I also give the dimensions and tell you where to score, to make the envelopes and the gift box with the Martha Stewart Score board (my #2 favorite thing). I made an error on the video... the envelopes, need to be cut at 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 and scored at 3 1/4 (not 1 1/4) on all four sides.  See the video below for more information:

Purr-fect Birthday!

I decided to make a card for the Paper Cutz Challenge #41. This weeks challenge was to make a card, layout or craft project using a digital, hand stamped or Cricut cut image of a dog or cat. I had to use my Cricut, of course, and the Create a Critter cartridge. I just can't get enough of that cart!

Here is what I came up with:
See my video below for sizes and to watch how I made the card.

Have a great day! Happy Scrap'n!

Got Cookies?

I made this card for my bestie. We have a family of raccoons that live in one of the large trees on our property. Every night when they climb down the tree to get dinner, cat food we leave out for our Farrel cats,  she runs out and tries to feed them table scraps. They refuse to eat anything she has for them, unless it happens to be chocolate chip cookies.  I saw this sweet little raccoon on the "Give a Hoot" Cart and thought that it would be perfect for what I wanted to do.
