Missing You Card for OWH

Hi all,

Today I made a missing you card for OWH.  The image is a print and cut from the Silhouette on line store.  The sentiment is  a stamp I purchased at Michael’s.  l have several different  missing you cards that I made and plan to include  in my box  of cards to OWH.    This card is a combination of Cameo and Cricut cuts.  I used my Cameo for the print and cut and my Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges for the mat.missing you dog20140815_100231

I am also entering this card in Pause Dream Enjoy’s Linky party.

Shaped Birthday Card

Hi all,

Today I made a shaped birthday card using LD Birthday Fishes file.  I brought the image of the Octopus to the Cameo mat.  Then I made 2 offsets to get the layers for the image  to sit on.  I duplicated the image and moved to the side.  Then I created a box for the image to be welded to.  Once that was done, I mirrored the image to the left and welded the two shapes to form the card.  I used the cut and print feature to create the water with the sentiment.  I  separated the duplicated image ( saved from above) and cut each layer out. I then cut all the layers out and assembled the card.  I was able to match the colors for the layers by using the eyedropper and color bucket in the silhouette.

Hi all,

Operation Write Home’s  Challenge for it Midweek Throwdown is Masculine Cards any theme.  They are in need of some missing you cards.  I decided to use this SVGCutting files image for my card.  I love the SVG Cutting files images.  They are very easy to assemble. I used the cut and print feature on my Cameo to make the sentiment.     I made several of these cards to add to my box of cards for the troops.

Operation Write Home is a non-profit organization that sends handmade blank cards to the troops so they can write home to their love ones.

I also added another insert to the box so I could use more images.                                                                                  Easter box in a cardI am entering this into Cardz TV Card Challenge # 5  Create a card for Easter.

Disney Box in a Card

Hi all.

20140219_180148 20140219_180200 20140219_180234 20140219_180255Today I made my first Box in a Card.  I used the Disney Mickey and Friends Cricut Cart.  I followed the design that Cara Miller posted for the box on her Let’s Learn Cricut Facebook page.  It is a closed group but if you are interested let me know so I can get you added. She provided the CCR file for the box and I was able to figure out the size of the images I wanted to add.  I cut most of the images at 2.5 inches. When it is closed it folds flat so you can put it in an envelope.  It was a lot of work but I made it for my grandson’s first birthday next week and he is worth all the effort!

I am also going to enter this in CARDZTV   3d birthday challenge.  I hope you all have a great day.

Decoration/Card Using Happy Hauntings and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 182

Hi all,

I originally intended this project to be a card but after it was completed I decided to keep it as a table decoration.  It looks so cute on my kitchen shelf.  I was inspired to create this project by Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog.  They asked us to Create a project using Black & Purple as your main colors.   I used the cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge and cut the witch at 4 inches with all her layers.  I made a step card and attached her, the title and the ghost from the same cartridge to the first and top steps.  I added google eyes and embossed the broom with the swirls folder and my cuttlebug. The paper is from a Halloween pack I purchased at Michaels last year.2013-10-16 10.17.052013-10-16 10.18.03

2013-10-10 16.23.30Hi all,

This week we were challenged to use an element of nature on our cards for our heroes to send home to their love ones.  I used the snowmen from Dollar Graphics Depot file called Frosty Long Stocking.  I think the images and their sentiments are adorable.  The scallop frame is from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge. I love this cartridge. It has some really nice shapes.
