Christmas In August??

That was my husband’s reply when he saw my newest Card.  I LOVE following other’s blogs, adn Youtube Channels… Well I came across this on YouTube LiveLoveAndScrap !! You can also find the project on her BLOG  !!



This project is GREAT for using up scraps.  Only thing I did differently is the wall sign that says Merry Christmas… I jsut cut a square and a mat, no fancy cricut work for me on that one!

My Son’s Journal


A scrapbooking group I am on has an awesome challenge.  Make a Journal Jar.

WHAT IS A JOURNAL JAR?? Well, it is an empty jar, that you decorate, and then fill with Journaling prompt… such as

Do you have a hobby?

What is/was you favorite subject in school?

Did you have an Imaginary friend as a child?

List 5 things that make you happy..

Each day you sit down with your Journal and your jar… Pick a random  prompt out of the Jar, and then journal about that topic! This can be made for children or adults. I mean come on we aren’t getting any younger, who know how much longer we will remember some of these things. So write them down now, so they can be shared with family later.

I don’t have an empty Jar, so all I have done so far, is the Journal. I made this for my son, who LOVES to make up stories, and I want him to get everything on paper, so we NEVER forget his wonderful imagination.

I started with 2 sheets of Designer paper cut at 7 1/2 X 10 1/4 inches. My papers came from the Pressed Petals Fun Stac. Bought for just #5 at Big Lots.


1 full sheet of Designer paper that I cut up for embellishing.


A plain Composition book, scissors, adhesive, and Dimensionals.


2 sheets of coordinating paper cut 9 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches.


The 2 Designer papers, are the front and Back Cover, the 2 Coordinating papers are the inside covers.  I forgot to take pictures, but after you put the outside covers on, you cut in on the corners, so that you can wrap the paper over the edges. The inside cover is then placed to cover the folded edges, and to give a nice finished look.


And this is my finished project, I cut Letter’s to put his name on it. I also cut pieces from the single sheet of paper to add some embellishing.

“Quilted” Card

OK, I spent my morning catching up on the blogs I follow.  Well, Mary over on CARDZ TV, created a WONDERFUL quilt pattern card.  I love Mary’s work, and since  this one didn’t need a cricut cartridge I don’t own, I decided to give it a go!

Here is what I came up with.  I traded the bow for a little Bling… I am sitll working on learning to tie cute little bows…


I didn’t put any sentiment, because I’m not sure what I will use it for… I am pretty sure I know who I would send it to, just not sure what occasion .

Srapbooking/Crafting Friends DT


I finally completed my Very First DT Project.

You can find the DT page here: Scrapbooking/Crfating DT

The Digital Stamp set comes from My Gratifico


I don’t use Copics, can’t really afford them.  On this card i used My Mark It Ultra fine markers, and  I believe 1 CTMH Marker, to color the kids, Kite, and trim on the clouds. The background i Colored with chalks.  Not my normal work at ALL! The coloring was definitely outside my comfort zone, but I am VERY glad I tried it… I LOVE it!  I will definitely  be using the rest of the set, and this image again..

Random Cards

I am still playing catch up with my Posts… So I’d like to share some random cards I made, about a year ago… They were fro a swap…

First is a Get Well Card


I also made a Christmas card


This was my first attempt at making a slider to ass to the card, and also my first attempt at using a stamped image I colored… I like em.


Here is another card I made, I don’t believe it was for a swap, especially since I just found it in my card stash… It’s a Birthday Card…


Last, but not least, some cute little Birthday Gift tags.



I want to say I used the Doodle Charms cartridge to make these, but to be quite honest, I’m not 100% sure.
