February Cricut Club Project...

Today my update is featuring another project from my cricut club.  Since my February Cricut Club met last Saturday I thought I'd share with all of  you the 12x12 double page scrapbook layout I designed for that club meeting. I like how this layout turned out and will be using it in my Alaskan Cruise scrapbook that I might just get completed later this year.
 I call it "Pack your Bags."  I used Cloud 9 patterned paper, We R patterned paper and Coordinations cardstock. The ribbon was from my stash, as I've mentioned  before I am a ribbon addict. The brad in the compass is also from my stash. The gold and silver dot embellishments where found in the dollar bin at my local Joann's store and I think they are by Studio G.  I used my Going Places and Summer Vacations cartridges with my Gypsy for all the layers and then I inked all the layers with my favorite clear snap chalk ink in Chestnut Roan.  
I just happen to have a few kits left and would like to sell them. I have one of the "Pack Your Bags" kits, one kit of the cute little house boxes, one kit of the birthday cards and one kit of the all occasion cards, each of the card kits has 4 cards in it. They come with all the supplies needed and a complete set of instruction, you will just need to have is the cartridges used to complete each kit, adhesive and a few basic tools. They are $15+ postage for each kit.  If anyone is interested email me for details and I'll get them to you. 
I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web. 

God Bless,

Winter in Idaho...

As many of you may know I live in eastern Idaho.  This means that we have usually cold and very snowy winters that often last until late April.  This year we have been having an unusually mild winter in that we've only had a couple days of snow that has not amount to much, that was until last night when we got 3 inches of snow in about 2 hours.  Luckily it stopped and the sun came out today but all that snow helped remind me that I have yet to post my January Cricut Club cards that went with the cute house I made.  So here are a couple of the cards as they remind me of winter which apparently is still here, at least in eastern Idaho.

The patterned paper is Echo park  and the card stock is all Bazzill. I cut the coffee cup from Beyond Birthdays cartridge and the mittens I cut from Jolly Holidays cartridge. The snowflakes and cuffs on the mittens is cut out of American Crafts glitter paper for a bit of bling and sparkle.   The ribbon was in my stash because I am a bit of a ribbon addicted.   I hope this inspires you all to cuddle up with a warm cup of cocoa and a good book.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web.

God Bless,

Happy Valentine's Day...

Hi, sorry that I have not updated my blog lately.  There has been a major change in my live recently, my Dad died on February 1st. Many of you know that he has been sick for several months and while I know that he is in a much better place, I still miss him. When I have not been dealing with all the stuff that is involved in saying goodbye to a loved one, I have been busy preparing for my second Cricut Club meeting. I will have to share those pictures with you all at another time as I think the ladies who attend should get to see the scrapbook page layout first since they have paid for the class.  I do have a cute little valentine card I made for my sweet wonderful husband that he will get first thing today.

I used BoBunny patterned papers, Joann's textured cardstock a button from my stash and some Jilly bean twine in pink. the hearts where made with a Martha Stewart border punch the sentiment was done with a Studio G stamp found in a dollar bin at Michael's the ribbon is from American Crafts, I colored the leaves on the stem of the flower with prismacolor pens and then smoothed them out using odorless mineral spirits. Of course the bling is done using stickles. 
I hope you enjoy your own Valentine's Day. Thanks for stopping  by my corner of the web.

God Bless,
