May 14 Cars Binder Project

WOW what a pain in the rear this binder project was - but it did turn out super cute if I do say so myself.  First off, I am SO tired of the Cricut Binder Projects involving frames!  I'm only up to "C" and I've had to do so many frames!.  This called for an 11x17 frame which I was not going to purchase - so I did the next best thing. I took my College Degree out of the frame and used that.  Just kiddin HA!  I cut a frame from foam board and then followed all of the instructions in the binder.
First I thought I'd use markers instead of paint. Yeah... dumb idea.  Live and learn.  Second I started painting (yes, as a matter of fact I was covered in it)  I painted the 'sky', then the 'road'  Yes I'm crooked on the grass part...... I'm crooked in the head too.   I then used a white gel pen to make the highway markings. That process took 2 days (the paint, not the gel pen)
First photo is all the gamillion cuts I had to make.  WOW.  That was a fun little treat, me with glue everywhere and 10000000 tiny pieces.  I had to keep referring to the binder photo to try and figure out where all the little pieces were to be glued.  Finally I just figured it out by looking at the front of the binder at the bigger photo.  My eyes are much too old to be looking at that tiny print!



Remember - leave comments so you can win stuffs!  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Monday!

Hugs and Chirps!

  3. I did this car as one of my first crickut projects ever. I was broke in good. Took me hours and in the end it was laminated and turned into a place mat for my youngest who will never appreciate the time and effort that went into making it. Luckily mine turned out cute too, or I may have chucked the entire machine. Lol. After a few beginner projects I then grew to love my machine and now could not live without it. Your project turned out great. I hope you can put it somewhere great to admire it for years to come.

  8. Great job Tangy, that cartridge sure is a handful!!! But the cuts are so cute. A lot of the guys in my life are racing nuts, so these cuts sure have come in handy.I've found that if you leave the cuts on the mat, they are easier to piece together. Love this one. TFS Hugs, Jess

  10. Oh, Tangee, this is very cute - labor intensive but very cute. I agree, those pictures are way too small! i find coloring is better for me than all those little bits.
    thanks for your blow-by-blow pics!

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!
