Erica's Cricut Blog Hop!

It's Blog Hop time!



Here is your exciting lineup!




Here is my project for the hop which sadly does not have a cricut cut unless you count the card itself. HA!

I used a brand new stamp set from Michelle & Candace over at Jaded Blossom that was just released last week. Isn't that tree gorgeous? This is the Simple Sayings set which has this beautiful tree a few birds and then a lot of sayings.

I used Close to my heart cocoa ink for the tree and saying.  I painstakingly put every pearl you see on that tree YIPES!  Those pearls are also from CTMH.  The paper is Stamping up and the teeny ribbon was made using twine and a fork.  I love making tiny lil bows with the fork.  Great trick! If you don't know how to do it, just check youtube for a video or two - they are everywhere.

Blog Candy? I suppose ya want some huh? :)  I have a grab bag full of goodies and well..... it's a grab bag so it's a surprise. You won't be disappointed I promise!  I will give you a hint tho.... there is a small hostess stamp from Close to my heart AND a Cricut Lanyard, I'm not telling you the rest :)

Simply leave a comment on THIS post and be sure to be a follower.  If you aren't a follower you will be disqualified (had that happen last time boooo)

Please be sure to hop all the way through - there are some awesome projects, some great bloggers and some blog candy and who doesn't love a chance at Blog Candy?

Please click the photo to see my detail on the pearls.  If you correctly guess how many pearls are on that card and you are the winner - I will throw in THREE extra goodies in your grab bag. How exciting is that?


Thanks for stopping by - come back now ya hear?



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. 


 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!
