Cricut Cards

Hello! Happy Friday! I made these cards for a series of Cricut classes I am teaching over the next 2 months. For these 3 I used the Elegant Cakes cartridge. I have to admit I am loving this cartridge. It defintely has some very beautiful, elegant images on it. As well as, 2 great fonts and quite a few nice borders. All the background papers are from the Echo Park "Be Mine" collection and I got to use a few of the new Stickles colors as well. While I like them all I think my favorite is definitely the teal card. Tha particualr medallion is so beautiful. Hope you enjoy them too! Thanks for stopping by!

Heritage Pages Part 2

Wanted to share the rest of the pages I have completed for my heritage album. The first and third ones are from my grandparents wedding and the second is my mom when she was a child. I used the same technique on the "True Love" layout as the one from yesterday, cutting out the flowers from a large patterned piece and adding some glitter, then adhering them with foam dots. The wedding layouts are Graphic 45 papers and the one of my mom is Bo Bunny's Olivia collection. Have a great Thursday!

Heritage Pages

So here is post #3 in my attempt at making up for 2 months of no posting. This is the first page of my heritage album I started last month. The background paper is Basic Grey "Curio" collection. The flowers are as well, I cut them from a 12x12 sheet, used Stickles to make them sparkle and layered them on the page using ALOT f foam dots in the process. The butterflies are K & Co. I used the font from the Elegant Cakes cartridge for her name and welded it together on my Gypsy. The pictures really don't do the page justice. I think it is one the top 5 pages I've ever done. Thanks again for stopping by!

Lots of Love

Just a quick post today of some Valentines cards I made. I finally got to use my Tim Holtz "Odds & Ends" stamp set. I have been in love with tickets lately so this set is of course a favorite right now. I also used lots of the Perfect Pearls Mists, Distress Crackle Paint, Cuttlebug embossing folders and more! Hope everyone is having a great day. Thanks for stopping by!

I am a BAD BAD Blogger!

I know! I know! Shame on me! Two months without a post, how terrible is that?! So I am going to try to make up for it. Here are 3 cards I did for a Valentine card class with the new "Be Mine" collection from Echo Park. I am loving this collection, it has so many great papers. I also used the Tim Holtz "Rosette" die on these for the first time and it is great. It makes putting the rosettes together so much easier. I also used his Styled Labels die and the brick wall embossing folder.
