Groovy Times Project & Ribbon organization

YAY!  It's the first project of the year on Kricut Krazy!  Well, the first cartridge project anyway LOL.  For those of you who are new I am on a mission to do the sample project of every cartridge I own (150 and counting) I'll do a few random projects of my own here and there and my buddy Tammy will do her SVG magic.  In this case we have the brand new cartridge Groovy Times!  Cute little project making a gift box.

The folks writing the binders and instructions for PC are getting a little lazy lemme tell ya.  You need to have a black gift box on hand.  Course no one has black gift boxes on hand so I made one using my Martha Stewart Score thingy ma bobber.  I made it 8x8 which was stupid cause now it's gynormous compared to the cute lil Chinese take out box looking thang in the binder.

Anyway the project was super simple to do and I think it's pretty festive looking.  I also showed you that I reorganized my ribbon AGAIN.  The wood dowels were bending from the weight.  So check out the video to see how you can use some of that vertical space on bookshelves, desks, etc.

Here ya go!:

  4. I love your box. I am going to have to get this cart, I just love those little flower. Awesome ribbon organizing idea! Thanks for sharing and have a great week.


  5. uh hello !! Im more concerned with the circle card on your wall!! what is that? A christmas card? how are you special ? WHERES MINE?
    BTW your box was ADORABLE !!! I think Im gonna have to go use my cart NOW !!!!

  6. "Groovy" box, pun intended! LOL I had not thought about using the tension rods before. I have some vertical space that those rods just might work in. Thanks for the idea!!

  7. Michelle - which Circle Card - the one someone made or the pre-printed one? The blue one was sent by a circle friend and the green one was sent by Shannon from the Cricut Circle - why? cause I'm special that's why! LOL

    Thanks everyone for the comments so far. We plan on having something every single day for you so keep checking back. And to Cheryl: Far Out! :)

  8. What a good idea, and since I've had the original cricut forever and never used it much and recently upgraded to the Imagine and added 40 carts, I think it will be a good idea for me to do the same and get to know it a little better! Thanks for sharing!!

  9. Tangee, you were definitely in the "groove" w/ that video! Get it?? --- "groove" as in groovy box and groove in your ribbon storage. Oh, why am I explainin' that to you. OF COURSE you get it! LOL :-)

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. 


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!
