I work for the phone company and send out a lot of cards. Made several of these for birthdays and congratulations for next year. They look masculine, cause I work with a lot of guys. But, I think for gals too. Also linking this to My Pink Stamper in an entry for a prize.

The challenge was to use Pink, Purple, and Green in a project. I designed 5 sets of these pieces for a layout on my CDS while watching the live upstream on Friday night. I cut and assembled them last night. Definitely not a 1/2 hour project. My colors are light light purple, light and medium pink, light blue, and I put them on a green glitter background. Stickles for the face of the snowman. Enjoy. Carts: SnowFriends, Speaking of Winter, When It's Cold Outside.

Hi -- I had a blast at the Nor Cal Swarm this past weekend. 140 ladies, most with Cricuts, spending the day scrapbooking and Cropping for the Cure in Rocklin, CA. There was door prizes, cartridges for everyone, food, silent auction, and a raffle for a Pink Ribbon Quilt. I loved to shop, and did my share. While walkin around I saw ladies working on cards, cruise and Halloween layouts, and Monique's kits. I borrowed the Paisley cart from a new friend, and went to town cutting lots of words and hair dryers (my daughter is a hairdresser). It took me two nights to put this layout together and visits to two scrapbook stores to find the "ribbon" paper. I used lots of carts on this layout. (Home Accents, Home Decor, Cindy Loo, A Childs Year, George, Indie Art, and WIMG) It was fun, yet emotional to make. I am going to write the names of friends who have survived breast cancer around the edges of the pages. Enjoy.

Every year we go to Modesto to make tomato sauce with our cousins. It is hard work but we have sauce for a year. We pick the tomatoes, wash them, cut them, grind them, cook them, and jar them. We usually jar about 100 jars and our cousins do 300. All you see in your head is RED for a week. Used Freshly Picked for the signs and "tomatoes". From Your Kitchen for the "sauce" and tomatoes on the bottom right.
I got this idea in my head for a row of old cars from the Heritage cartridge. It came out pretty good.. I changed the lyrics of course to match our purchase of our Tbird from Andre's cousin. She won it on The Price is Right in 2003. It only had 2000 miles on it when we brought it. Smells new still.... we already have 5000 miles on it in a little less than a year.
Finally scrapping this layout of the guys on Father's Day last year. Cricut Plantin Schoolbook used for the lettering. Got the mitt and "play ball" in a swap and knew it was for this layout. Isn't that background paper cool. "Take me out to the ballgame"

I used the Pagoda, Plantin Schoolbook, and Campout Cricut Cartridges to make this page. I really like the colors. I was tired of the same old campout style layouts and got this idea in my head to make it fancy. Turned out well. Stickles on the fish and pole. One of my favorites.

This is a very masculine card I created for my nephew. Used the Pagoda cricut cart for the dragon. Wanted a "dark" look to this card, so roughly inked in black on the red and white paper. smudged (ok it was an accident) the silver dots, it looks really cool. If I had the time, I would have added silver brads. The white paper is textured and very appropriate for this card.

Entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl. (http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/) under the Die Cut flower power, Shadow, and Inked categories. The colors went so well together in this simple layout, and I was so happy with the results. the orange box under the flowers will be used for journaling.

I wanted to remember my mom today, it is our first Mother's Day without her. Last night I finished this layout, there are a few more to go. She was a lover of the garden, fushia's being one of her favorite. I thought the flower arrangement was perfect during the services, and wanted to capture that in my layout. Cricut used for the hearts, sunburst, and gates to heaven. Stickers and perals for a little bling. Happy Mother's day to all.

Andre and I went to the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Event in April 2010. We didn't know anyone but had loads of fun. Lots of wine, cheese, tastings, and strolling. Look for more posts soon from this event. Inked around frame and borders. Cuts are from Cricut "From My Kitchen" cart. Frame is a challenge from BBTB2 for April, modified, of course into Martini flowers. I didn't even realize these frames existed on this cartridge.

Here is a 2 page layout I just completed for St. Patrick's Day. LUCKY is from Indie Art and the rest of the cuts are from PDDU. I had fun creating this, as I wanted to document my holiday displays, not just trips and people.

I am giving an orchid as a birthday gift and got the idea to make some cuts and attach them to skewers and then into the plant. The pic doesn't quite capture all the cuts, but you get the idea. I could go overboard and add more, but sometimes, more is less. Enjoy.
I actually made this card for a 90 year old who is very young at heart. Happy Birthday, Girl, and bird all from A Childs Year. The scallop was stretched on design studio and is from Celebrations. I inked the bird in a light blue... the girl is shadowed in white and then pop dotted on the card. Two rhinestones added for her buttons, and presto - a simple but really nice card appears. Pop dots are not what I usually use, but they sure make a difference in the final card... I need to remember to use them more often.
