More great news!

Not only did I make Ginger Snap Scraps DT but I also was accepted to Design for Creative Kuts and I am super excited!! They feature digital downloads and SVG files that I can cut on my Cricut with my Sure Cuts Alot program. I have never done that before so I am so anxious to play with their goodies and my machine. So stay tuned for lots of great projects to come from me. Just hope I can do them all justice!

I Took the Plunge

Pin It
So I did it!! Wohoo! I applied for the Ginger Snap Scraps DT. So exciting to do this! Keep your fingers crossed for me (toes too!). I wanted to share with you the two projects I submitted.

First up is a Mother's Day Gift. I got the wooden letters from OTC and the papers are from Storytellers Club. I used embellies from my stash and from OTC as well.

 I also submitted a Mother's Day Card that I created. It's a tri-fold card and I still need to add some photos to it but my photo printer ran out of ink. I used an awesome 6x6 paper pack called BLUSH by My Mind's Eye. You can purchase this paper pack from Ginger Snap Scraps along with cardstock and ink. The flowers, feather, pearls , and bling all came from my stash.

The front of the card reads: What a Lovely Day
 What a lovely way
 to say Happy Mother's Day

Here's hoping that I just inspired you to make something for that special mom in your life! And remember to shop Ginger Snap Scraps to see the latest and greatest items to help you create gorgeous projects!

My Cricut Mini that is! I just love this little machine. It fits in my scrap bag, is super lightweight, and hardly takes up any room! I also love my stand I purchased on ebay from Honey Do. Fits it perfect and keeps me organized while I am cropping.

But enough about my new toy, lets talk vinyl!! This vinyl was cut out using my Mini and the Cricut Everyday Cartridge. I just loved the Travel Bug saying and had to have my little bug head added. My name is cut out with Don Juan, one of most favorite fonts ever! And if you know me, you know I have to have bling!

Since my Cricut inspires me daily, I'd love to inspire others too! So I will be giving away a few sheets of 12x12 vinyl in different colors and a brand new Cricut Spatula. Then you can make amazing things out of vinyl too. All you need to do is share my blog on your blog, become a follower, and like me on facebook and encourage your followers to follow me.

Gnomeo and Juliet

Pin It
Well here they are...several days in the making, my very own Gnomeo and Juliet. They are being displayed on 9x7 canvas and can be hung up on a wall or set on a shelf. Just in time for Spring!

 Also featured in these project are a couple of flowers I made using Flower Shoppe. I have to say this was my first attempt and it was a bit tricky. But all in all I think they came out okay. What do you think?

Large finished flower..I did leave off the bottom layer. I didn't like the way it looked. I see a tutorial coming be on the look out!! I also added some glossy accents to the center and petals to look like dew drops.

Here is Juliet! So sweet!! The paper line is Bee Happy Collection- Happy Stripe by Carolees Creations. I also used lots of bazzill and a felt loopy border.

And Gnomeo is my favorite. These cuts can be found on the Cricut Craft Room Exclusives. This one is called Gnomes and Mushrooms and it's adorable!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love inspiring others and creating fun things! Please feel free to follow me and subscribe. Leave me a note too! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! Til next time...Happy Scrapping! Hugs, Connie

Nanny Clipboard

Pin It
Mondays at My Cricut Craft Room the Design Team shows you projects made with either The Imagine, E2, the Mini or CCR. This week I used my Cricut Mini along with the Learning Curve Font Cartridge and Walk in my Garden shape Cartridge to create these fun gift for a dear friend.
This is a regular 9 x 12 Clip Board that I decided to alter. I used paper and diecuts from Storytellers Club. And I personalized it for her using my Cricut Mini. Instead of adding her name I added "Nanny" in 2" letters cut with Learning Curve. And she loves ladybugs so I cut this pretty ladybug out at 1 1/2" using Walk in my Garden. I hope she really loves it and can display it in her home. Her Nanny days may be over..but that's what all the kids lovingly refer to her as.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be sure to become a follower...please. I am almost at 150 which is super darn exciting to me because I am going to be giving away some goodies. And please be sure to come back to my place where we are "Wild about Scrapbooking" and Crafting!! LOL! Thanks for visitng and many Hugs.
