I have TWO items for you today!  First is this cute frame for my mom (the one in the center) with her great grandson Jaxon.  The frame was 1.00 at Michaels and I used paper from the DCWV Boys Nursery paper stack.  A few gems and bows and Jaxon's name with wooden letters and INSTANT gift that Mom adored!  (My sister is on mom's left and my beautiful niece and first time mom Lauren is on mom's right.  Lauren and her husband are very proud parents and Jaxon is just the cutest lil guy!

Ok so - here is my first ever all by myself, didn't use a recipe and it's not from a Cricut Cartridge Project. EEK!   I want HONEST feedback my Krazies - we learn from others so PLEASE be honest.

I used the Pemberly kit from Close to My Heart.  This is a super cute kit and coordinates with the most awesome cartridge EVER.  Art Philosophy. If you don't have it - get it. You won't regret it.  The background card stock is a blue I'm starting to fall in love with.  The flower in the center is actually cut from a piece of cardstock in the kit that was full of flowers. I edged it with blue ink.  There is a solid blue shadow and then the 3 pieces of cream that were run thru the cuttlebug and taped down.  The blue squares are metal and were with the kit. The butterflies I inked the edges, they are wooden and also in the kit. I put pearls on the wings and colored them blue to match.  The shoelace type material down the center was also in the kit.

The inside of the card is actually my favorite. The words and butterflies are from the Pemberly stamp set, however the "Happy Mothers Day" is from Joy's Life and the little trails after the butterflies are from Bzz a stamp set from CTMH.

Ok there you have it - my 2 projects.  Both created from my head - first time ever. I've always copied stuff - so bring on the comments - would love to hear your thoughts. Remember, to qualify for the contest to win 31+ projects you must be a member of the blog and leave comments.

Enjoy the hop and Happy Mothers Day!

Hugs and Chirps!

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!
