Project Forty-five

Hello and Welcome Back!
For this project I just wanted to show the cute little cards we are making for my youngest Daughter's Valentine's Card! We home school but we attend a weekly Co-op and they attend faith formation. So they will be giving these out there. I love all the cute cuts on the Disney Cartridges, that are not so Disney! That's what makes them great to have,

My youngest is Eight years old, so I only get to make the first card. After that she makes them.

This is the card!

I tried to get a close up of his little face and wings. Yes I glues and glittered 22 pairs of wings LOL

OK So Here is how I made him
Since these are for my Daughter, I don't make full cards. I divide the 8.5 x 11 card stock into fours.
We put the card part on front and she stamps the back and signs her name.

Each card is 4.25 x 5.5
I started with white card stock
I took a piece of red rose Stampin Up 4 x 5.25 and Used the Divine Swirl Cuttlebug folder
Then I took a 3.75 x 5 pattern paper
I hand stitched and lines for the bee and the outer stitching.
The Be Mine was just a stamp I had.

The Bee is from the Pooh and Friends Cricut Cartridge
I cut him at 3 inches.
I then used Glossy Accents on the eye and the top of the antennas.
I then used LaJolle Icy Accents Glitter on the wings.

When I make cards for my daughter I make all the bees and cut all the paper pieces. She now gets to assemble them.

Thanks for Looking!

Project Forty-four Challenge Project

Hello and welcome back! We are working on some cute stuff around here. I am still on a wait list for a "new" look for the blog, but patience is a virtue. So I am trying.

So I was due on Thursday to do this major restock of my craft shelves. Hubby had found a bigger chunk for my shopping budget ...whooo hooo him! So I woke up Thursday so excited. We were driving into town, went to the bank had some breakfast and that's where my day went WRONG!! On the highway to go to Micheal's, my van;s radiator decided to explode. The good thing is hubby listened to me when we bought the van to pay for the extra warranty that covered the engine and such. So it wasn't as bad, we have a deductible but not the whole bill. So there went my "extra" plus a little of my budget. So instead of whinnying, which I did do on the inside. I put my big girl undies on and shopped with what I had. I GOT NEW CRICUT BLADES!! So I am in business around here.

So for today's project it is for a challenge over at My Creative Time. Emma has a Thursday challenge to use some of our older more forgotten cartridges. This was to use any cartridge but it had to have a sport theme to it. So the only person in my life who likes sports is my dad. So I made this card for him to let him know we miss him! So here we go.

So my family are huge University of Michigan fans!! So you know there is a huge Disney Sports store in Downtown Disney. Even Disney it trying to "get" those Sports fans. So I came up with Tigger playing Football for my favorite team.


Card Base
is from Paper Dolls for Everyday

Football and the Goal Post
I made the football at 23 inches with out the real size button
I then copied the football, dragged it above my first football flipped it and then welded it together to be the base of the card.
The goal post was actually cut at 4 inches
I cut the image twice. Once in silver then in Gold. I then just used the bottom part of the Gold for the goal post.

was cut at 4.5 inches
using my Gypsy I made a Football jersey from the same EDPD cartridge at 4.03 inches.
I made 2 jersey one I made blue and the other I fused a M into it to get the layered look.

The words and the M on the shirt are all from the cartridge Cutting Up cut at 1 inch.

I had to soooo stop myself from making this card PRETTY! I was going to glitter the words, hubby stopped me. He kept reminding me it was for my DAD.

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Welcome New Year!

SO WELCOME BACK!!!! It's a new year and new beginnings. I never realized how long I had been away from the blog. So most of you know my husband and I were in process of adopting two children. I had no clue how much my life would change. We have had the girls almost one year now. We are waiting on final adoption papers anytime .... fingers are crossed. Plus if that is not enough craziness in my life, this school year we have decided we are  homeschooling. So my plate has been full, but my crafting mojo is so back. So I have been reading all my favorite blogs. I have a few projects already to cut in my Gypsy, so excited. So what am I waiting on you ask. Well my mats that I got when I originally purchased my Cricut have finally cracked and have gone to crafting heaven. So I am getting new mats this weekend. So I just wanted to say "HI" first and now I will make another post with a cute little project!

Thanks for all the supportive messages this past year!!!
Love You ALL!!
