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!

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
