Old West Cartridge Challenge

Jen Stewart brings us another super fun project as a Guest Designer and she has a lot to say about this frame.

I need to say that this project is a little more advanced, takes a bit of time patience getting the small pieces together.  I bought a frame from Michaels in the unfinished wood area for $1.00.

1. PRIME your frame first - the frame soaks up a lot of paint, so priming first will help cut down coats.  I used 3 coats of paint total (primer, then 2 coats of green paint)

2. I found it easiest to cut pieces one step at a time and assemble.  i.e. cut all pieces for the horses, then assemble horses, cut all pieces for the hat, then assemble - etc. Oh yeah - ink all the edges - you'll be glad you did!  It just adds a bit more rustic charm.

3.  If you have a Xyron, it made it faster and easier to assemble all the pieces together.

4.  Lay all assembles pieces on the frame before adhereing them down.

5.  I used pop dots for adhereing to the frame.  Makes it fun to pop right off the frame!!

Remember this project is a bit more advanced using the Cricut.  There is a lot of shifting of keys and lots of different images to cut.  This project took me about 2 hours from start to finish.  Have fun - this project is worth the time and effort!!

Thanks Jen!


  1. What a terrific frame! Great choice of cut outs.

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.
