Da Babies a car crash and some cards for mom

Happy Weekend everyone - I plan on crafting my lil bum off!  What are you up to?  I can't wait to next week when I get my CTMH cartridge - I'll be showing ya lots of fun stuff from there!

Some of you have asked about Ragan - thank you SO much - she is doing BEAUTIFULLY and is almost 6 months old!  Her cousin Julianna arrived on July 3rd and is also doing wonderful. Both my girls are now mommies!  That blows my mind!  Our son Matt gave us quite a scare last week. He moved back to Maryland a few weeks ago and while driving to see one of his sisters, he took an exit off the highway a little too fast and flipped his car a few times.  Thankfully he is ok minus 7 staples in his head, nasty bruises, bumps and muscle strains, etc.  he totaled his car but we really could care less about the car (obviously).

That's our wee lil Ragan (Jelly Bean) on the right!  Some of you remember when she was just 4 pounds and in a drug induced coma.  Now she is super happy and thriving!  On the left is our lil Julianna (Juju Bee)who came into the world a healthy 8.2 pounds!  Both babies are doing wonderfully thanks so much!

Oh and we don't want Matthew slighted so here is a pic of his car  (the other side in the front is gone (tire and all)  Thankful to God that he is ok.

So, onto the cards.  As some of you know, I take care of my mom who has Parkinsons.  She always asks me to make a card for this or that to send various family members and friends. I finally sat down and made her 15 of them.  I was going through my pre-cut cards looking for certain colors when I came across this kit I had NO idea that I had!. I'm not even sure who made them but they were window cards with stickers you affix yourself.  Then I dug thru my stamps and such to find some sentiments and tried to figure out how to make it simple for her to mix and match.  Enter the Curly Label die and border set from Jaded Blossom

It was quite simple to use!  I just ran it thru my cuddlebug with standard plates, nothing fancy. I was even able to cut thru 2 pieces of card stock at a time.  Made 20 of them.  Then tried to figure out what to do about the sentiments - I have stamps from everywhere (like the rest of you)  One of my favorite go to sentiment stamp sets is Simple Sayings also from Jaded Blossom  LOVE LOVE LOVE the tree on that stamp set.  I chose a few sentiments I thought mom would use and then simply put pop dots on the back and put them all in a zip lock bag for her.  She can mix and match and should be ok for a bit before I have to really make her some cards LOL.

You can also see these cards in the video I took the other day (the post below this one)

See you soon with a new project!  Comments are ALWAYS welcome so please let me know what you think. The good, the bad and the ugly!

By the way - if anyone knows how I can force my photo stream to update I sure would appreciate it. Seems like it was updating on it's own for a long time. Now I have to send my photos from my iphone right to my email or manually download them.  Any tips?

Hugs and Happiness!

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!
