Dr. Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight Series

Yes girls, it's true, I met Dr. Carlisle Cullen. I'm still so excited about it, I can't believe it really happened. This LO is framed, and hanging in my scrap area, I want to be reminded everyday! The only Cricut used was the date, from Plantin Schoolbook. Papers are DCWV, and Me & My Big Ideas. K & Co stickers, and misc flowers. TFL!!!

Thank you

I had so much fun making this one; I actually used my Pooh Font cartridge for the Tigger, cut him at 4". On the inside is "Thank You" from Beyond Birthdays. Rub ons are Stampin Up!, ribbon is from the $1 bin at Target, and papers are Recollections. TFL!

Love is in the air

Here's a framed layout I made as a gift for my cousin, who recently got engaged. The only cart used on this was Sweethearts, and I have to admit, I love it. TFL

My baby boy!

Hi to everyone!! Here's my little guy on his first day, he was so excited. I had a lot of fun making this layout, I used Simply Sweet for the title, and Doodlecharms for the bus. The papers are from the Target $1 bins!! Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

Here's Mikey (on the right) with two family friends on the 4th. See, I'm catching up! I used Doodlecharms for the stars, cut them 3 times and then embossed the red ones, and God Bless America comes from Beyond Birthdays. The black paper is Coredinations, and the flag paper, I honestly don't know. Just know it came from JoAnns. TFL!!!

More San Francisco

This is one of many lo's that I'm doing from our trip to SF last summer. The only Cricut used on here was from Accent Essentials, the rest are embellies I bought specifically for our trip. Papers are DCWV, rub-ons are Stampin Up!

Another SF layout

This one had me stumped for days, I had no creative mojo whatsoever. Finally I remembered that I had a jail cell on the My Community cartridge, and a little person! How perfect! And the title was done using Pooh Font, very simple. It's still missing something, but I can't exactly figure it out. I'm just happy to have this layout done!

My 1st Freezer Paper Tee

I finally got up the nerve to try a freezer paper t-shirt that's all the rave on the Cricut Messageboards. It was fun! I will definitely be doing this for Christmas gifts this year.

A Simple Card

I whipped this one up real quick, using my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I didn't put any sentiments on the inside, I figure I can just pull this out for whatever occasion comes along!

Thank You Card

I made this pretty thank you card for my cousin who loves all things skulls, using my new Indie Art cartridge. Papers are from the DCWV Rockstar. Ijust inked the entire thing and used pop dots to give it dimension. I don't always care for my work, but this one is now one of my favorites.

A Childs Year Font

Can I just say that I love the font on this new cartridge!? It's too cute...I can't wait to use it some more! For this LO I used DCWV Doodlin Around paper, my Christmas Solutions cart for the snowflakes, and misc skittles. I love this photo of my son, he was only 3 months old here, I wish I could keep him that age forever!

Our Trip to the Toledo Zoo

My bff lent me her Animal Kingdom cartridge, and while I do love it to peices, I can only imagine using it for layouts like these. I also used my Plantin Schoolbook and Mickey Font cartridges for this, and some vellum I found stashed away. Did a lot of inking on the letters and the elephant, and I used the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV.

A Twilight Card Challenge

Here is my first ever challenge, and I loved every bit of it!!! I love love love this movie and I love making cards, so this was perfect. I used my Beyond Birthdays cartridge, some SU! Rub Ons, misc ribbon and papers! The image I had just laying around, I wasn't sure what to do with it...perfect for this type of card!!

A Simply Sweet Picture Frame

I bought this wooden frame at M's for $1, slapped on some paper, some flowers I had laying around, a little bit of Stickles, and used my Simply Sweet cart for the words. This is my son and my bff's little girl when they were babies...they're such good friends. These make awesome gifts!

Hello Kitty!

Hi everyone!! I made this last night for my bff's little girl, she's turning 4 next weekend. I used the HK card feature, cut at 7", then just cut a regular HK at 7", (the card feature alone just didn't look didn't fit) and then used the silhouette for the black. Purple glitter paper for the bow, nose, and heart. To make the card heavier, I then cut another HK and glued to the back. Sorry for all the babbling, it's hard to explain!!! TFL!

San Francisco

This is from our trip to California last summer, I've really been wanting to scrap this for some time now. Finally late Friday night I sat down to do it, and wouldn't ya know it, I was dead tired and the creative juices just weren't flowing. So here it is, my forst of many LO's of our trip. I used PS and my Potpourri cart for this one, misc stickers. I want to go back to SF soon, it's a beautiful city with tons to do!

Need some help?

Trying to get some pages done tonight, since I don't know when I'll get another chance...and look who decides to join me! lol. He just plopped that big furry butt down on my page without thinking twice. What if I had the adhesive side up!? lol

Check me out!

Here's a picture of me (after a very long day) with my freshly painted E, and my new Simply Sweet cart that I won from I am too excited!!! Go check out the website, it has a lot of tips and really good contests, and the girls there are wonderful! XoXo

It's a SpongeBob Birthday!!!!

Here it is!! I've worked on this all weekend, and I can't be happier with it. I just can't wait for my lil guy to see it! Carts I used: SB, HK Greetings, and PS. Every gift has a different character, and in the front is a tin I altered. I also used misc papers, stickles, and brads.

Next weekend we're celebrating my son's 5th birthday, so I wanted to make him an extra special card. I used my new DCWV Doodlin Around stack, HK Greetings, Plantin Schoolbook, and an old SU Star punch. I have more in store for him, I'll post once I finish it!

It ain't easy being green!

I did it, I finally got up the nerve to paint my E!!! I wanted it to be the true Cricut Green, and match my Cuttlebug, I think it turned out nice. Now comes the really fun part; decorating and blinging it out. Still haven't decided just what I'm going to do, but I'll post pics once I figure it out!

Mad at me again!

Mikey cracks me up, he's always mad at me about something. I made him even more angry when I took this picture of him! But he still loves his Mama, I think this is just another stage he's going through. I used Me and My Big Ideas papers, Plantin Schoolbook for the title, misc felt stickers, and SU markers.

I love SBSP

I absolutely love this photo of Mikey, so much so that I had to use it in a LO all by itself. I used SBSP for the "Just Add Water", PS for everything else. DCWV papers and adhesive ribbon, Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder, and of course more stickles.

Sunday, July 12, 2009

I love this new cart!!

I made this for a little boy's birthday, and he loved it!! Of course this picture was taken before I stuffed it full of goodies. I used my SB, HK, and PS carts. And boy was it easy!!!!! I love it!

Another Christmas LO

I can't get enough of the Christmas Solutions cart!!! I also used my Calligraphy cart on this one, and a few misc embellishments, buttons, and DCWV ribbon.

O Christmas Tree

For this page, I used my Christmas Solutions cart, and Plantin Schoolbook, along with some hand stitching, Stickles, and scraps...I love the pic of lil man, he was in awe at how beautiful the tree was. This LO was fun, as Christmas is most favorite time of year...I love everything about it!

This is one of those pages I just kept putting to the back of my pile; and I don't know why because it was such a special occassion in my son's life: his first rock concert! lol! Glad I finally did it though. It looks a lot prettier in person with all the Stickles...

Sunday project

Wasn't in the mood to scrap today, but wanted to make something. So here it is, some 3x3 Twilight magnets! I'm really diggin the way these turned out, they're even prettier in person. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with them....the girls at work will laugh at me if I use them in my office.....

Trial Run....

Playing around with my Cricut today, and decided to make a Bug Head magnet. Note to self: use a heavier cardstock. This was my first time using Mod Podge...still not exactly sure if I did it right. But like everything in life, it's a trial and error, right?! My next one will be better, I promise.

Me & My BFF

This one's for my best friend Faith....I swear we should have been sisters. A sister from another Mister? lol. This page didn't require too much on my part, the paper was pretty enough that I just added some stickles and staples!

Updated scrap area!!!

I am so excited about my new purchase, that if I could do a cartwheel, I would. I went to Ikea over the weekend with my son and cousin, and found this AWESOME craft table on clearance!!! Granted, it was a pain to put together, but the blisters on my thumb are so worth it. It's almost doubled my workspace...I'm seriously considering purchasing another one.

My silly friends....

The majority of this LO was made up of old scraps I had layin around, from a kit I bought a couple years ago thru Stampin Up. Just a kinda goofy LO...I had a ton of pictures from that night and wanted to scrap them. I love these crazy girls!!!

Sunday, June 7, 2009


This page is dedicated to my dear Goddaughter, the sweetest, chubbiest baby I know...gotta love her!

Cousin-ly Love

They're really 2nd cousins, but act like brother and sister...this is my son and my cousin, Clara, being goofy like they always are. I love seeing them together, I just sit back and laugh....

Thursday, May 28, 2009


I love this little guy so much...everyday I thank God for him, because if I didn't have him, I really don't know where I would be right now. He truly is my miracle baby, my pride and joy, my everything.

28 years old

I had so much fun making this layout, in fact, I'm not even certain I'm done with it. The cupcake from my Doodlecharms cart has become my favorite by far. And the glitter paper I used for the icing,I'm hooked!! I'm going out later today to see if I can find some more. I don't know why I haven't done layouts like this for the previous years. It's nice to document my likes and dislikes so I can look back when I'm older.

My scrap area

Here it is, my corner of the basement. It's expanding, slowly but surely! Eventually I'll add on another section, since I'm running out of workspace. And my lil guy needs a table of his own, too! Notice my fur baby to the left, she has her own warm cozy spot to relax while I'm crafting away. Now if I could only find a way to hang stuff on the walls, then this would be my perfect getaway!!!!

Yay! A baby shower!

These were a lot of work, but so much fun!! And the Mom-to-be loved it all...that's all that matters.

My first shot at a diaper cake

Ok, it's not the best, I'll be the first to admit it. But, it's something, at least. I think the Mother-to-be will like it, and that's all that matters, right? My next one will be better, if the need shall ever arise. I just need more practice! XoXo

This could get addictive!!!

Here's another layout I'm pretty darn proud of. This one just flowed so nicely, maybe because ever since I've seen the movie, and read the books, I've been obsessed! lol Don't make fun of me...there are plenty of grown women out there that share my passion for this gorgeous vampire. Don't be ashamed!!!!
Wow, my first post! I've had an account here for awhile, just never knew what exactly to do with it! But since I've joined the Cricut Messagboards, I've become so inspired, learned so much, and decided to give it a try. So being that it's only 2 days before Mother's Day, I thought I'd share my newest layout that I made this afternoon. It's of my dear Mother and I, the last day I saw her alive. Please, don't feel like I'm trying to bring you down or sadden you in anyway...I just wanted to dedicate an entire layout to her, my best friend. Any and all comments are always welcome, too!!! And once I get the hang of this blog, I'll post some other work I've done. But until then....XoXo
