Little Bee Nugget

I love finding little nuggets on carts.  Especially those I have forgotten about, or those I think I may not use again.  This is one of those finds!  These cute little guys are from Sesame Street Seasons.
 I like to do the inside of cards as well.  I used to leave them blank, but then I thought it was nicer to put something on the inside.  Store bought cards can stay boring.  I want to spice mine up a bit!  Besides, it uses up items and scraps.  We all have too many of those!
Have a lovely day!

Tardis Birthday Card - It's Bigger on the Inside!

My sister-in-law is a great Dr. Who fan.  These are her two favorite doctors.  Fun and fast card! I learned by combining print & cut  and cut out pieces it works really well.   She loved it!  That made me happy! 

Have an awesome day!

Drinker Bell

Here is a shirt and card I made for my daughter.  She loves wine.  (She's not a wino though!  lol!) The inside reads:  "I Tink you should have a Happy Birthday!"   It was an idea that came from Facebook:  Let's Learn Cricut Explore by Heidi Varden.  The designer paper and sentiment are from Kaiser Craft "Violet Crush".  I used a Recollections card base and envelope.  These are so easy, I use them a lot! 

My first Drinker Bell was a bust.  The first OOPS was I put in "glitter vinyl" NOT "glitter iron on vinyl"!  What a nightmare it was to weed.  Then, after taking the time to weed and put everything together, line it up, center it, wash it, blah, blah blah, I managed at the last moment to flip the bottle onto the body of Tink and iron it together!  Oi!  All of the work, not to mention having to buy another shirt, was toast!  PLUS I didn't have any more HTV!  I went mooching and found one piece I could get.  Phew, saved by the bell!  This was for her birthday and she needed to receive it today!

I am so loving the Design Space and Explore.  I can't wait until they make it usable off-line as well!

Hello Again!

It has been so long since I have been on this blog!  It seems like life has a way of interfering with what we would like to do by adding those things that we have to do.  I love to craft and have been doing so, but the ability to keep up this blog, simple though it may be, proved to be too much over the past while.  I'm finally at a place where I can begin again.

 I decided to start on with a simple project.  I was wanting to buy a new Explore Air - gold, of course,  since I can not find a pink one (swoon) but realized color is really not a reason to buy a new machine.  My current Explore One works like a charm.  There was really no reason to go and buy a new one.  (Drats!)  So, I decided to create "a new one".  I love the fun of it!  It's really a lot more fun to create something than to buy something.  Well, at least that is what I tell myself when I want to spend money but really can't!  But honestly, I love how it turned out and no-one would be able to claim my original, one-of-a-kind machine!

I love How to Train Your Dragon.  I like that the little guy can still be a leader, and life is not always perfect.  There are hardships in life, but you can overcome them.  What a glorious message to share with kids!  Who can resist this little guy?!  Dr Seuss's fish in a bowl is iconic and he always looks like he's reprimanding someone!  Today, he's talking to Toothless.  He better beware or he may get swat!

The images were from Krafty Nook.  The font was a free download.  I created the speech bubble and circle in Cricut Design Space. All images were cut out with this wonderful "new" machine.
I hope to begin posting regularly again.  This time with all different types of creations.

A Fun Birthday!

I made these for my grand daughter for her birthday.  She wanted something a little funky, with tye-dye.  The telephone is made from an file.  The flower is a "freebie of the week" cut from Cricut.  The images on the card are also Cricut.

It's so nice being able to easily combine svgs and carts!

They were fun to make! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Jump Right In!

I used another Kadoodlebug Designs for this birthday card.  It's from the spooky cuties set.    I am having so much fun with this new Explore!  I can't believe how tiny the pieces can be that it can cut!   I used the writing feature to do the sentiment on the inside of the card.  Lots of fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
