Today’s layout is from a fun trip they took to see some family “at the river”. A family member has a house “at the river” so the girls always get excited when they know where going to see this family “at the river”! I used the Tahiti stack from DCWV and Life’s a Beach Cricut cartridge. Oh, and STICKLES!!!

Today’s Layout is pretty simple. I used Graphically Speaking to cut the “three” border and and all the other embellishments. I love the Graphically Speaking cartridge. It is full of many unexpected designs! Paper is DCWV and Bazzills.

The picture from today’s layout is pretty old, like 10 years old! It’s from a Easter gathering we had with my DH’s family. The picture is after the egg hunt and has several 2nd and 3rd cousins.
So, I was frugal and cut everything out of the center of the paper so I could use the paper as the background! I just hate to waste paper!
Patterned paper is DCWV. Title and diecuts are from the Nursery Rhymes Cricut cartridge. I used some jewels to bling it up!
Today’s layout is of my middle girls. They insisted on having their picture made together, so I thought I would definitely have to scrap it for both of them!

Today’s post is a layout to get you thinking about scrapbooking Christmas! Paper is from DCWV Premium Christmas Stack. The diecuts are from the Christmas solutions cartridge (free if you register a gypsy before Dec. 31st). I thought the cuts were kind of plain, so of course I added some stickles! Enjoy!
This journaling circle was already on the paper! Love paper that makes scrapping easy! I did add some glossy accents to the buttons to make them look more buttonish (if that’s a word!). The font is Nursery Rhymes.

Today’s post uses one of my favorite cartridges, Sweethearts.
Patterned paper is DCWV. I love to use their paper as the background because it is so beautiful that I just need to add a few embellishments. I love that elegant can also be simple!
“First Home” is from Alphalicious (my favorite Cricut Font) and it’s welded to the house.
My Lighting Man!

Today’s post is of some pictures I tried to take of my DD. She is camera shy (even though she loves to take pics of herself) so she was acting silly! I thought the pictures turned out beautiful, just like her!
The patterned paper is DCWV. I tried to mimic the flowers on the paper for the title by wielding circles together on the gypsy. I used the Blackletter Cricut Cartridge that I got free for owning a gypsy! If you haven’t heard, Provo Craft has an awesome deal if you register your gypsy before Dec. 31st you get 5 free cartridges!

Today I finished up the first of my homemade Christmas presents, with a little help from my little man! My DS who is 4 helped by handing me each piece as I assembled the packets. He was a “crane” and a “trash truck”! Gotta love little boys!
All patterned paper is from the DCWV Christmas Premium Stack. The snowman is cut from Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge. I stickled his hat and added a bow to the top. The peppermint ribbon is from Clear Dollar Stamps .
The paper is folded at 1 inch, then again at 5 1/2 inches and the hot cocoa is stapled in the flap and the front tucks in like a matchbook. I was able to get a huge package of cocoa at Sam’s!
Enjoy and God bless!

For today’s card I used a “z” fold card. The purse is from the Paisley cartridge, tag is from Just B/C Cards. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the tag, using the Swiss Dots folder.
The patterned paper is from The Paper Company, the solid paper is Bazzill’s and the card base is Stampin Up. Ribbon is random ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
Stickles and some other bling added to finish it off! The phrase is printed out on the computer and adhered to the inside! So, what do you think?

Okay, I have to admit I was a bit frustrated when I came up with this card! For the card swap group I’m in the theme for December is “masculine”. So, it’s a little hard to make a “masculine”, crafty card! Or, at least it is for me! Now don’t get me wrong, my DH has received many homemade cards, but I don’t know many men that truly appreciate all that a crafty card takes to make! So, without further ado…
The truck was cut from Just Because Cards, as was the scalloped border. The phrase was printed out on the computer. I did more inking on this card than I think I’ve ever done on one card! I got the Crop-a-dile out for the eyelets. I love that tool, but always forget about it!
The patterned paper is from the DCWV Summer Stack and the solid is Bazzill’s. The card base is Stampin Up. Enjoy!
Mark your calendars! The Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop is November 19-21!

I left a card out a few days ago when I posted about cards I’d made for the Cricut Card Fairy Army! Oops! This is a card I made from the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge. Hello Kitty is cut with Bazzils cardstock. All other paper is from The Paper Co. The ribbon is from PaperTrey Ink. I added some bling with stickles and dew drops. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the scalloped edge of the card. Enjoy and God bless!

Today’s card was made using DCWV paper, PaperTrey Ink ribbon and stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the mat. I have quite a few stamp sets but I never really know how to color the image. For this one I used pastels. Hope you like it and are inspired to go create!

I thought I would share some cards that I have been working on. The first are two cards I made for people who’ve battled cancer. Teal is the color for ovarian cancer, like pink is for breast cancer.
The solid paper is from Stampin Up and the patterned paper is from DCWV. The teal ribbon is Stampin Up and the black ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Stamps are from PaperTrey Ink. The model is from the Cricut cartridge Forever Young.
Of course I had to Stickle!!!
The next card is a card I made for the Cricut Card Fairy Army. If you have a Cricut, you should really check out the Cricut Card Fairy Army. We send cards to people all over the country who need a special lift me up. I really enjoying using my crafting to spread some love and happiness. I have always loved to make things for people I know, but now I am dedicated to cheering up total strangers! What better way for a crafter to spread God’s love? Anyway, here’s a card I made for a little boy who is 4 and was born with many medical problems. He will be having a birthday soon and his mother (I think) requested that we make him cards.
I used the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge for the cut. I welded mirror images of the base together with my Gypsy to make a card. I used some really cool glitter paper from DCWV. I thought it was too plain just being black and white. So I decided to put some red ribbon from Stampin Up around the bottom to add some color. I made two of these, because you never know when you might need a Mickey card!!!
Take care and God bless!
