My Imagine-ation Monday @ My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to a new Imagine-ation Monday @ My Cricut Craft Room. I hope everyone had a great Saturday and a Wonderful "Sunday". I know I did. Took the girls to the zoo on saturday and had a blast. So for today I made a very quick and very simple card. I havent added anywording yet. The reason for that is I dont know what wording I want to go with. I could use any number of things.

I could have used "Meet me on Sunday" or  "What to go for a sunday" or just "Sunday?"
For the card I used one cartridge for the whole thing. The cut and the paper is all from Yummy cartridge. I love this cart.

Thanks for stopping

"Just my Style" Challenge.

Welcome to the "Just my Style" challenge at at Cardz Tv. This is the first challenge for the Cardz Tv Stamp Design Team and am so excited to be apart of this. For this challenge we had to make a card using your favorite technique, card fold, colors, embellishments whatever you consider YOUR style.
My Style:

For me I like to keep things simple. Simple folds and easy to make type of things. I do like to try different things but I like simple the best. When you have two kids simple is good.

For my card I used Cardz Tv Stamp Set Holly Jolly. Which you can find at Cardz Tv.


Please Make Sure to check out Cardz TV and see what everyone has created. I still cant believe that I made this amazing team. Thank you again Mary for all that you do and for letting me be apart of this.
Make sure to check out the stamps as well. They are amazing. :)

November 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop- Day Two

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop

Can you believe its the 1st weekend of November. With that it is time for the November 100 cricut cartridge blog hop. You should have come from Karey. If not please start with Erica I used a total of 5 carts. I used Sophie,Pasiley,Gypsy wonderings,Fancy Frames, Yummy. The top 3 things I made is going to be a gift for my neice who is going to be 16 in just a little over a month from now. I cant believe she is going to be 16. 
The bookmark was cut from Sophie. and it is cut at 6 inches.  and the card is cut from Paisley and is cut at 4 inches. The pink butterfly on the card is also from Paisley and is cut at 1.5 inches. 

This cut is from the Gypsy Wanderings. I cut this a total of 4 times. I did 3 layers of just white cardstock glued together and then the type layer in a print. I think I might cut this a couple more times to make it a bit thicker and add hooks or somehting to the back so it can be put on the wall. It was cut at 6 inches. All the paper I used on these three project was printed with the Imagine and come from the Yummy cartridge.


I have made the frame and couldnt decide on what to do with it. I want back and forth several times on what to do with it. I final gave it a home on this comp. book. The book that is covering come from I think is a value stack from dvwv. The frame is from Fancy Frames and is cut at 4 inches. I printed the base layer (bottom) of the imagine Yummy cart. and left the top white. the white butterfly is Martha Stewart. I found it at my Joanns. the ribbon I had in my stash and have always wanted to use it and I think it goes really well with this project. The book is going to be used for all my crafty ideas or card ideas I find on line and I want to try. I figured it would be a handy thing to have.
Thank you for hopping by today. Your next stop is Gayle

Remember to stay crafty.
