Here are pictures of the mini album I made for my partner Carolyn. This swap was a mini- album swap on the Cricut Message Board. We could make any mini album we liked. I used the Artbooking cartridge for a lot of the cuts and the pages themselves.
Carolyn made me an album and I will post those pictures soon.
Isn't this red and green elf just a cutie? He's been inked and Stickled and just ready to start some Christmas baking. This is one of 20 that I made for a recipe swap on the Cricut MB. I've had to wait several weeks to post this one because they hadn't been mailed back yet. It's always a surprise until we open our package from the hostess. There were a lot of pieces to the 20 elves, it took an entire evening to put them together. I used the Christmas Solutions cartridge for the elf (yes he is so small on the display card I couldn't really make him out) and CCR for the title (using the reverse image and welding in a box over the text). These are 6x6 inches, making the design a little challenging. Let's get baking!!

BBTB2 this week is "TURKEY". This is a simple plaque using adhesive vinyl. It will look nice against my mantel with all the fall foliage. I used the Thanksgiving and Artbooking cartridges. The swirl is brown and the 'grateful' is black, but they both look black. If I had additional colors of vinyl, I would add green or yellow too. However, I'm on the road, and didn't bring my entire stash. Thanks for viewing.

Here's my entry for the BBTB2 blog today. Let me tell you - this was a hard challenge for me. White on White is definitely not my style, I pondered over my project for 2 weeks. What could I make? What would look good in just white? Well, I came home today, ready to cut something from the CCR, and there it came to me, the free Christmas Card for today. The whites are really white and a light silver, it turns out a little darker in the picture. Snowflakes are from the "When It's Cold Outside" cartridge, pop-dotted on the card. A very simple card that looks dramatic. And Yes, it is getting cold outside, 39 degrees this morning when I went to work.

I have been organizing my craft room. It's totally a HOT MESS right now. I just need more hours in the day, don't you?

Today's challenge over at BBTB2 is "One for the Boys - Football Challenge". I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post two of the pages that I just completed of my husband and his best friends at the Superbowl this year. This was a major item checked off the bucket list for these guys. I used the All Sports cuts free on the Cricut Craft Room (CCR) last week to make the embellishments. The title and 2013 was made from Plantin Schoolbook. I was lucky to find a 49er paper kit at JoAnns. I'll post some of the other great layouts from this monumentous event soon.

I work for a big communications company and there are always times when I need a work related card - retirements, birthdays, promotions, etc. so I made a batch of these cards a while back, I think they are great for male or female. I really like the patterned paper, it seemed to really complete the card. This card is going out to a friend who is retiring today. The 'It's Your Day' phrase is from the Celebrations cart, and the telephone is from Heritage. I Stickled the phone just to bling it up a bit.
