Save The Date Card


My daughter is getting married in August 2015, and I made this Save The Date card to send out. I used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge to make this. I flipped and welded the shape for the base of the card. The base of the card and the layers were cut at 4 1/2". I cut off the ring part from the black layer. I also used the hide and contour feature on my Gypsy for the ring. "Save the Date" phrase and shadow were cut at 2". I used the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug emossing folder on the. black layer of the ring box. The white and black cardstock are Bazzill and the silver and silver prismatic cardstock were bought at Hobby Lobby.

I used my Gypsy to make the cuts, and here is a picture of my Gypsy screen.

There are so many great projects and I don't want you to miss a single one! Today we are highlighting Valentine's Day inspired projects.

I made a treat bag topper for this blog hop.



For the base of the topper, I used the oblong shift and shadow shift cuts on page 46 of the Elegant Edges cartridge. I cut this at 7". The hearts are from the Simply Charmed cartridge on page 30. I cut them at 2" using the shadow feature. The face on the dark pink heart is from the Peachy Keen Stamps Everyday Character Face Assortment (PK-490) and I used the 1 3/8" face. Happy Valentine's Day is from Close To My Heart and was from the Whooo's Your Valentine stamp set. All solid cardstock is Close To My Heart and the patterned cardstock is from SEI. I purchased the treat bags at the grocery store.

Old West Birthday Card



 made this birthday card using the Old West Cricut cartridge and the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge. 

This is an A2 size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The first layer of the outside and inside of the card measures 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and I used some patterned paper from my stash. I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut the mat (cream) and mat shadow (blue) for the outside of the card at 4 1/2" using the Oblong shift and Shadow shift features on page 51 of the handbook. The blue mat on the inside of the card is 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" and the cream mat on the inside of the card is 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". The cowboy boot (page 54 of the handbook) was from the Old West Cricut cartridge and I cut it at 1 3/4". The cowboy hat (page 57 of the handbook) was also from the Old West and the one on the front of the card was cut at 1", while the one on the inside was cut at 3/4". The Happy Birthday on the front is a Stampin' Up! stamp I bought at a garage sale, and the Celebrate on the inside is from the Close To My Heart Card Chatter-Birthday stamp set. All solid cardstock is Recollections.
Here are pictures of the handbook pages I used. The first one is from Elegant Edges and the other two are from Old West.

I made this Thanksgiving card while I was at a crop over the weekend. This is an A2 size card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4"). The base of the card is kraft colored Recollections cardstock. The bottom layer of the mat on the front of the card and inside the card is Bazzill, and the top layer of both of the mats is Recollections. I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut the mat and shadow at 4". On the inside, the bottom layer of the mat is 5 1/4 x 4" and the top layer of the mat is 5 x 3 3/4". I used CTMH stamp sets to stamp the images.

Two Halloween Cards and a Wedding Card

I made two Halloween cards at a crop last week, and here they are:


These are A2 size cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") I used Create A Critter 2 to make both of these cards. The Owl Witch and the Ghost Pirate were both cut at 3 1/2". All solid cardstock is Bazzill and the patterned paper is from the DCWV Halloween and Fall stack. The outside sentiment on the Owl card is from The Stamps of Life, and the sentiments are from past CTMH Stamp of the Month sets. The gems on the Owl card are from Queen & Co. The background mat on the Ghost card is from Elegant Edges and was cut at 4".

Here are screen shots of my Gypsy for cutting the Owl and Ghost.

Here is the wedding card I made and gave to the bride and groom last night.


This is also an A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). I cut the mat for the outside at 4 x 5 1/4" and embossed it with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and used a sponge to apply the yellow ink. On the inside, the bottom mat is 4 x 5 1/4" and the top mat is 3 3/4 x 5". I used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge to cut the car at 2 1/2" and the Just Married sign at 1 3/4". I also used the "negative" of one of the cuts on the inside of the card and used a Studio G stamp to stamp I Do. I used a wooden block stamp I bought at Hobby Lobby for the Congratulations sentiment. I added a Recollections heart gem to the front of the card. All cardstock is Bazzill.

Here is my Gypsy screen for this card.
