Here are some coupons for the upcoming week....Enjoy!

Bridal Shower Card & Tags

Well, it's been a long week and unfortunately I didn't get much "crafting" done this week...although I did spend some time on the Cricut message boards.

Friday night, I did finally manage to play with my E for a bit. I made a bridal shower card and some gift tags as I was attending a bridal shower on Saturday afternoon. The bride-to-be is marrying my husbands best friend -- they have been friends for a LONG time and are more like brothers than friends. The groom and bride-to-be are very dear to us and we love them dearly. I am so thrilled for the two of them -- they are a very sweet couple and I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

School Project for my Hubby

My husband just started nursing classes. Well, last weekend, he had an assignment to make a collage to tell a bit about himself which would then be posted on a bulletin board so the class could get to know their classmates. My husband works weekends and since I'm the "crafty" person in our relationship, he decided it would be a good homework assignment for me.

Expression Dust Cover

I tried my hand at sewing last night and today...I wanted to make a Cricut Expression dust cover.  I used a pattern that I downloaded from Custom Crops and watched their instructional videos on how to make the dust cover. I needed a little bit of extra help getting my mind wrapped around how to piece the end pieces together - and thanks to I s on the Cricut message boards I was able to finish sewing it together.  It's not perfect...but I'm pretty pleased with it.
Thanks for taking a look -- Let me know what you think.

Baby Card

I made the following card to Congratulate my husband's co-worker (and his wife) on the arrival of their son. Their son was born last week - so over the weekend, I worked on the card. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the tag on the front using the Sizzix Baby Set embossing folder and then used a rubber stamp and embossing powder for the inside. I used a clear stamp from Studio G for the front and then added a bit of ribbon to break up the front a bit.


(Sorry the pics are a bit dark - I had to turn off the flash as the flash made it impossible to view the card at all.)

PageMaps Site

It's been a while since my last's been a bit of a busy week. Wednesday I took the day off from work to go to school with my hubby for his CNA graduation. After we got home, I ran to Wal-Mart to see if they had any "goodies" in the crafting clearance section. I bought a couple small things but nothing major. After I got home, I decided to completely rearrange my craft room...I moved just about every piece of furniture and got everything situated the way I least I think so. :) today I was reading through the messages on the Cricut messageboards and there was a post about PageMaps. Interested, I decided to check it out. The site provides you with "maps" for scrapbooking layouts, cards, tags, etc. It is awesome! Since I'm not very creative when it comes to scrapbooking -- I tend to just arrange the photos and put on some stickers -- I am glad to have come across this site. The site owner puts up page maps each month and you can even look at the archives for maps from past months. You definitely ought to check it out, if you ever feel like you are in a rut or stumped.

Get Well Soon Card

Well, I spent my Friday night cruising the web and Cricut message boards as well as making a Get Well card for a little girl about to undergo surgery. Below is a picture of the card I came up with. It's still pretty simple, since I'm still new to card making...but I'm really enjoying it. I made the card using my Cricut Mickey and Friends and Cuttin'Up Cartridges and the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I also added some acrylic rhinestones to "bling" it up a bit.

Enjoy and feel free to comment. :)

Birthday Card

Holiday Planner

During the past week, I worked on a Holiday Planner that I gave my MIL for her birthday present. She loves the Holiday season and after seeing some of the newer versions in the Gallery of the Christmas Planner site (OrganizedChristmas' focus site), I was inspired to create one for her that she can keep with her while she is shopping. The original version of the Holiday Planner was a 3-ring notebook, which while it gives you lots of room, can be a bit burdensome to take with you when you are out and about.

Recent Project(s)

I've been working on a couple of recent projects using my Cricut. Unfortunately, I can't post pics just yet as they are a present for my MILs birthday and I'm not sure if she is aware of my blog just yet and reading posts. We are going out to celebrate her birthday this I'll more than likely post some pics tomorrow. I just have to remember to take the pics today before heading out since I haven't taken any yet due to the camera battery having died.

I'm going to head out to Michael's and AC Moore today to check out what they have. I have some 50% off coupons that printed out when I went there last weekend that are only good today. Of course, I have those coupons in addition to the weekly coupons that I've printed off from the internet.
