Families Are Forever-Card and Envie

This card was made almost completely with the Just Because Cards cartridge for the Cricut. The only shape not cut with that cart is the butterfly. It is from Gypsy Wanderings. It is cut at 1/2". Everything else is cut at 5". This cart is really fun because it has all the card parts designed for you. Just pick your paper and cut away. There are long cards, square cards, funky cards and some traditional cards on this cart. They have some fun puns for the cards. And there are several envelopes to match each card. They have made it so you can easily match the right card to the right envie.
HappyHappyJoyJoy from the Cricut Message Board made a 2 part video that give great tips and trick for this cart. You should go check out her blog at Thanks for looking!

Hope You Have A PURRFECT Birthday!

Wow, posting 2 days in a row! Anywho, this is a card I made for a friend at Church. The inside says "Hope You Have A PURRFECT Birthday!". The card base is made from the Cricut Sentimentals cart. I cut it twice (on my Gypsy). They second one is cut a bit smaller and then I cut off the back part of the card so I could use the front as a second layer on the front of the first card. The adorable kitty and all other cuts on this card are from the Create A Critter cart. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite cartridges.
The kitty and all his parts are cut at 2.5". I used my kitty, Logan, as my muse. The kitty pillow is cut at 2" and the yarn is just a bit smaller (I can't remember the exact size). The kitty, yarn and pillow are adorned with ink and the kitty and yarn are on pop dots. The paper is from the All Dressed Up Stack by DCWV. I added some ribbon on the side to embellish. TFL. I enjoy any and all comments!

Time flies when I am busy...And Silk Lollipop Flower

Time has passed by in the blink of an eye. I wish I coul post everything that I make (at least the things that I But, with 3 beautiful boys, a wonderful (but busy) husband, being active in my Church and my kids school, time just goes by so fast. So I will be happy sharing when I can.

So I am sharing this lollipop flower made from satin. I learned how to make it on You Tube. The channel I learned it on is Butterflykisses12. What I really like about this flower is how "expensive" it looks and how easy it is to do. You can really make it your own. It can go on a scrapbook page, a card, an altered project, bag, etc. TFL.
