My Pink Stamper Winter Challenge


I made this fun little guy from the Stretch You Imagination cartridge. The sentiment is just one I made up since sadly I have no fun stamp sets to work with. Gonna have to correct that soon. This is for the My Pink Stamper challenge by Robyn. Hope you like him as much as I do.

Non traditional wedding card

I made this card yesterday for a couple that have waited 14 years and 3 children to get married. Guess they just wanted to “BE” sure. I had to use the bee paper I had. I wanted to do something non traditional and really love the way this turned out. Card is 4 1/2 x 6. Opens tall. Flowers and square tag are from Celebrations cartridge and sentiment is from Heritage cartridge. I cut the word united twice and cut one up to get the in word. Inside sentiment was found on the internet, forgot the website already, and printed from the computer. The square tag is from page 122 and cuts with corner holes where I added the brads. Please comment to let me know what you think!

2 5 7 10 box with cutout window

2 5 7 10 box with cutout and saying from Country Life Cartridge


I love these little boxes but thought it would be cuter with a window. Here is a great tutorial on cutting the box out. Once I had the shape of the box cut out, I marked the spot for the window on the scored rectangle that will be the front of the box. Be sure to allow enough room for the flap to fold over. Next, adhere the flat paper to the Cricut mat. Be sure to check which way the shape you want will cut. Bring the blade to the mark made on the front of box. Hit Center Point button. This is where the center of your shape will be. I used the strawberry on pg. 56 cut at 2 inches. Cut shape. Unload paper, remove from mat, and turn over. Use a piece of clear cellophane and adhere over cutout. I used a piece from a cellophane gift bag I cut for a different project. Fold all scored pieces and glue following directions from Splitcoast Stampers. Decorate as you like. I found strawberry candies to fill the box, cut the sentiment from pg. 56 at 1”, glittered it, glued it to a 1 x 2 3/4 piece of brown cs which I ran through the distressed stripes Cuttlebug folder. attached two pink brads, pop dot attached it to the box. I finished by stamping the U R over the strawberry. Hope you like it! I can’t wait to give it away as a cute little gift!

Me in vintage

Entry for Paper Playtime Challenge #10 Miss You
I love doing vintage type scrapbook pages. This is a picture of me when I was 2, around 1975. I used the Heritage Cartridge for all my cut outs. It is a wonderful cart for doing projects like this. The background paper is Paper Pizazz Chocolate pack. I inked all the sides of the pink with a brown marker to give it dimension without distressing it. It really gave it a sharp look. This is one of my favorite techniques. I also used the cricut pens to outline the scroll work before cutting and then used the brown marker to ink the sides since it was white core cardstock. Hope you like it as much as I do.
