50 States Binder Project

Well heck - I'm not sure how that happened but I did a post on the 50 states binder project, saved it, then scheduled it for upload for 3am and this morning I discovered it hasn't posted. So I went in on my ipad and changed it from scheduled to auto, then clicked 'post' and everything went away.  :(

Ok so - starting over.  The 50 States Binder did not have a project - I don't think any of the classmates cartridges do.  So I just chose to put all the cuts for my state on a 12x12 sheet so you could see what they looked like. I'm a little disappointed that the capital and the state names did not have a shadow feature but I love the flag!

I thought the birds were a little funky and the flower had too many layers but that's just me. Also the state shape was done at 4"  look how tiny that thang is.  The one under Annapolis actually has a tiny star cut out of it to show you were the capital is.  I just arranged them on a 12 by 12 so you could see how the cuts look. 

Don't forget there will be a post every day this week and you must leave a comment on each of them to qualify for the blog candy.

Have a beautiful day!


  1. Sorry blogger is being mean to you :( But great idea to show off this cart:) My girls are in school, so I'm ready when they start doing their state projects!!

  2. Love the Maryland page!!! I need to do countrys as well as states!

  3. This is so cool!!! I had been eyeing that cart but could never justify buying that cart! TFS!

  4. Love The project I don't have the cartidge But might have to now.. Thanks for Sharing!!! Susan

  5. LOVE that project. I am so sorry that you had lost your post! I hate when that happens! I am glad you posted it again! It is amazing how small that one is at 4". I am guessing it is because in relation to the other states at 4" that is the size it needs to be. If it was set at true size it would probably be larger. Thank you so much for sharing! I am a new follower and would be honored if you would come to my blog and do the same if you aren't already at ACreativeJourneywithMelissa dot
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  6. I think it's really cute Tangee! I agree that the state is REALLY small considering it was cut on 4". Wonder what it would have looked like if it was cut on 12"! LOL Great blog!

  7. I think my last comment got lost in internet h3ll. I wanted to say that I love this! Am definetly looking at this for homeschooling project! Thanks for sharing! ~ Susan O

  8. I hate it when I loose a post...great project....

  9. Great job!! I don't know why some cuts come out soooo small even when you set the size at a larger number!! I have had that happen to me on a project and it is just soooooo frustrating!!

  10. Sorry about your post! I have that cart but have never used it! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  11. Love your layout!Maryland?Must visit!LOL TFS
    you always make me laugh!!FB or your blog!Love it!Thanks for that!

  12. Boy, blogger has been a buger to everyone lately! 50 states is one of the first carts I got, thinking my grandkids will use it for school. They are in 3rd,4th and 5th grade and so far- no state projects!!


  14. Your state flag is amazing! The birds look like they should be on a wall clock, but they do look great! I guess the size of your state is proportional to states like Texas and California. Just remember, big things come in small packages! Lol!

  15. Love this! Sorry I posted but it didn't take! I've got this cart so I def. wanted to see what you were doing with it. Thanks for sharing.


  16. I have this cart but have never used it. Thought my grandson would use it for school, but no projects yet. I think I read somewhere that if you cut them all at the same size they will fit together to make the whole US.--Ryansmaama

  17. This is my all time favorite cart. When ever one asks which cart they should get. I tell this one. You get so much for the $. The birds and flowers are the best. Matter of fack I have 2 of these. A just in case the one craps out on me...

  18. I don't have this cartridge! Thanks for the ideas!

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!
