All Dressed Up with Cricut Forever Young Card

I've been busy trying to make some more Cricut projects for display at my Sunday Demo.'s card is another idea inspired by Cricut -- check out the projects for some cool ideas on scrapbook layouts, cards and cake decorating.

I happened to be browsing the site and saw a cute card project I thought I'd give a try. I changed the dimensions slightly and modified only a couple other things, but other than that I followed the directions. It's a cute card.

Birds of a Feather Cricut inspired Card

Isn't this just too cute!

I can't take credit for the general idea behind this card.  My inspiration: projects.

I made a few modifications to a creation I found on the Cricut site under projects.  I used Close to My Heart papers, ink, markers, ribbon and changed the card size to fit a standard A2 envelope. If you would like to check out some more Cricut projects see and go to the projects link. You're sure to find some ideas to inspire you.

Cricut & Cuttlebug make Tinker Bell Sparkle

Today's project is another Cricut and Cuttlebug creation! :)

CTMH White Chipboard (z1164)
CTMH Exclusive Inks -- Star Spangled Blue Ink Pad (z2149)
CTMH White Daisy CS (1385)
Scrap of blue and scrap of purple CS
Cuttlebug - Divine Swirl embossing folder
Cuttlebug - Tinker Bell Embossing Folder / Die cut combo
Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials - Accent 47s (page 78)
Cricut Cartridge Tinker Bell & Friends - Tink (page 47)
Martha Stewart's blue glitter.
Pop-dots or dimensionals

First, using the chipboard, cut one accent 47s @ 5". Then, using the white CS, cut one @ 4.5" and another at 3.75". Sponge the edges of all 3 pieces with the Star Spangled Blue. Next, mount the 4.5" on top of the 5" with pop-dots or some kind of dimensional, and mount the 3.75" on top of both (creating a stack).

Next, cut a 3"x3" piece of CS (from your scrap, mine is the blue one) and emboss with the Divine Swirl folder; sponge the edges with the Star Spangled Blue. Attach ribbon going around the back to keep edges hidden. Now, attach with adhesive to the scalloped set. Place a button in each upper corner. Using your Cricut, cut out Tink (pg 47) @ 1.5" and place between the two buttons.

Last, using a piece of scrap white CS, first cut out the Tinker Bell with the Tink Die and then line up and emboss with the embossing folder set; color and add sparkles as desired. Mount Tink with pop-dots hiding edge behind ribbon.

Makes a cute 3-D picture to mount in a frame for your special princess, or just display on a plate holder. You could even turn it into a card if you like by attaching it to a card face. Enjoy!

Happy May 1st! with a Cuttlebug & CTMH Card

Wow! 5 months have zipped by this year. Happy May day!

Yay, today is warm again it was 81° outside around noon, and it's now 89° outside at 3:00 pm. I was trying to work on my project 365 some today. I've been taking the pictures since March when I found out about it, but haven't been so good about uploading them. I really need to work on that, LOL. Something is down on the site today though, so I guess it will have to wait until another time... See I really should just stay up to date, then it wouldn't matter if it was down today. :) If you aren't familiar with project 365, check out my page link above it will tell you all about it and give you the links to where you can find out more and get your own 365Project. :)

So, anyway I have a cute card for you that's great to put on a package as a gift card, or if you like a small thank you card. It's simple and doesn't take many supplies.

5" x 2.5" - CTMH Chocolate Card Stock (x5643); fold in half
1.5" x 2.5" - CTMH Indian Corn Blue Card Stock (1284)
1.5" x 2.25" - CTMH Colonial White CS (1388) **
CTMH Exclusive Inks Pad: Pansy Purple (Z2141)
CTMH Stamp set: August Word Puzzle (D1290)
Cuttlebug embossing folder :Forest Branches

First, stamp the flip-flops on the Colonial White CS. Next, emboss the Indian Corn Blue CS and attache to the bottom portion of the folded Chocolate CS. Finally, attache the Colonial White CS with the flip-flops at an angle and you're done and ready to stamp or write your sentiment inside. Have fun!

**you could use Daisy White instead if you prefer
