Straight from the Nest

I am so excited about this one. My Guest Designer is Normea Banner.  I was so lucky to meet her when we did our Provo Craft Cricut training together in L.A. back in April. We hung out quite a bit, dined together and basically had lots of fun. We were even table mates during all the training. She's funny and takes things to a "ho nuber lebel" (inside joke just for her XOXO)  She is very creative, please check out her blog as soon as you can - you will be inspired by her. I promise!

Normea says:  This "Tweetheart Card" from the Straight From The Nestcartridge. The booklet calls for a series of green, cream, pink, & yellow papers and ribbons... well, those aren't really my favorite colors, so I decided to work with what I had and went with black, white, and silver. The project was actually very easy to do and the instructions were very straight forward. I used my Fiskars Rotary Cutter and my Martha Stewart Score Board to make sure all the pieces were properly measured and scored. I also used my ColorBox Cat's Eyepigment ink in black to ink the edges of my paper pieces (I used paper instead of cardstock on the card, using cardstock for the base & for the Cricut cuts). The finished project is a 7"x6" gatefold card. Hope you like it!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
