Super Exciting News, some jewelry and some blog candy!

Hey there Krazies!

I'm super excited!  I've been working hard to revamp Kricut Krazy - not the look, but the content.  I have tons of things in store for you in the coming weeks.  I look forward to lots of feedback and you guys can look forward to Tutorials, Reviews of tools/supplies, Jewelry Making, Paper Crafting, Stamping (cause you all just LOVE when I get my hands all inky!) and if there is a video, there will be photos to go along with it for people who don't wish to hear me drone on and on about stuff.  Yes, I know everyone loves my voice and my babbling... but you know, just in case  :)

I leave you with my latest project.  A cute little personalized bracelet for my friend Darlene who just had a birthday.  This was SUPER easy.  The little charms are 9mm flat round blanks I purchased on ebay. They are actually nickle plated but look like an antique gold in the photo. (I'm working on my photo taking skills...sigh)  I simply stamped the initials on them with a metal stamping alphabet, then went over the impression with a black Sharpee Marker.  I then dabbed a paper towel with Staz On Remover and wiped across the little blanks so you could only see the dark letters.  D & S (Darlene & Steve) are on ONE link as they are the mom and dad, and their kids are on individual links.  I also added the "Love" charm that I purchased from Fire Mountain Gems.  The infinity link was purchased on ebay as well.  I was so happy with out this turned out as was Darlene!  Great gift for new Mom's or new Families.

These are the first bracelets I ever did. One for my niece, with her husbands initial and their son's initial.  (They have another little one on the way and I will add that initial when we know his or her name)   The other bracelet was for my daughter Amanda, her fiance Brandon and my grand daughter Julianna.  I purchased the bracelets on etsy already made, but I didn't like the infinity link as it was a bit cheesy, so I replaced my own infinity links and tossed the ucky ones.  What do you think?  No video as I was nearly blind after closing those tiny links.  No kidding, I actually got a headache because they are SO tiny.


Tomorrow I will show you a coupla vinyl projects I've been working on and later in the week we (as if there is more than just me) have some great Desk Organizers made with the Cameo!  I am REALLY loving my Cameo but I gotta tell ya, still loving my Cricut.  Thinking about selling the Pazzles and all the extra's I have with it (blades, pen holder, engraving tool, gem stuff, I think I own just about everything)  I just find that I'm not using it as much as the Cameo and Cricut.

Want some blog candy? How about a couple of Cling Stamp sets from Michaels?  I'll post photos of those later in the week. Here's what ya gotta do to get them:

1.  Be a follower
2. Leave a message and answer the following questions:
    a) How would you feel if I added a "Recipe Day" to the blog once a week or two?
    b)  What do you think of the jewelry posts?
    c) which cutter do you use most often?

That's it :)  I will draw a winner from the comments next Sunday and announce the winner on Mondays post.

I hope to have a giveaway once a week - altho they may be small.  Who doesn't love free stuff?

Hugs and Happiness!

  3. I love checking out new recipes! Your jewelry is super cute :) I use a Making Memories trimmer that I used to love because it folds in half and I don't have space to keep a 12x12 trimmer out. However, it hasn't been cutting straight for me lately, so will have to break down and try something else. I hope everything is ok!

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!
