A year in Review scrapbook page

I made this for a Cricut Circle challenge, and boy was it ever a challenge. The challenge was to make a scrapbook page or a mini reviewing the year 2011, for some reason this was hard for me. Well this is what I came up with, it's been done for awhile with the exception of one picture. I designed this in CCR with the Fancy Frames cartridge. I used my E2 and put a gel pen in it and drew all the frames. I cut the numbers and letters out of Alphalicious and glued them down. I printed the little numbers and description of the pictures from the computer. The black label is cut from Lacy Labels. The little numbers are inked around the edge and put on with pop dots.

Happy Birthday

So I was playing around with CCR and my Imagine and this is what happened. They still don't play super well together, but there is great potential. I picked out the mat color and added the owl and header and printed that out. I then cut the cupcake party hat and header again and put on pop dots. The sentiment is from the All mixed up cart, I just typed it in, tried to do it again and now it won't let me. Not my favorite card, but I'm still learning how to use these two things.

New Design Team!

I have some amazing news, well at least it is for me. I made the Design Team for Creative Critterz Imaginations! I was so surprised but totally thrilled. I am fairly new to the Imagine so I am hoping this will help to improve my skills with that machine. I hope you will follow along with me and the other Design Team members for some fun and hopefully learn something along the way. Go check out Creative Critterz Imaginations and the other DT members.

Love Card

I made this in the Cricut Craft Room. I am still learning how to use that program so the verdict is still out as to my liking it or not. I spent about 18 hours in 2 days playing around with it and sometimes it would work and sometimes it would not. I really had a hard time trying to get it to work with my Imagine. I will try again and see how it goes. Anyway this card was made with the craft room basics for the heart and the base and Heritage for the love. The love was cut out 3 times and pop dots put in between each layer.

You take the Cake

This card is made from the Just because cards cartridge, that cart has so many cute cards on it. The paper is bo-bunny all the edges are inked and I used liquid pearls for the corners of the base and the edge of the frosting. The cake is popped up and I used a white gel pen.

Give Away!

Cindy is having a fun give away check it out here.

Love Forever Card

The love is from the Heritage cartridge, the sentiment is from the computer. The pleated flower was made by taking a 6" x.75" strip of paper (after you scallop the edges) and score in each scallop and fold back and forth, glue ends together and push center down until it lays flat. Glue it to the scallop circle and embellish.

Cricut Craft Room

I made this card in the Cricut Craft Room, it took me 2 days to figure everything out and get the hang of it. I made 3 cards and this is the one my husband said to use so here it is. The base and little rectangles that connect the love are from CCR basics the love is from Heritage the heart is from Sweethearts. I cut several layers and layered them with foam dots. I added pearls and stickles to the rim of the heart. It was fun learning how to use CCR, just need a few more tutorials on some things.

Mr. and Mrs. Card

It's amazing how something as simple as a little piece of tulle can make such a huge difference in how something looks. The cuts are from the Heritage cartridge, the Mr. and Mrs. and congratulations are printed from the computer. The edges are inked and the bird is popped up.

Live Well Card

This was a super fast and simple card to make. The only cricut cut is the clipboard clip from fabulous finds cut at 4.5". The flower is a punch and so is the circle. The live well square is from the twitterpated line of paper by pebbles.

Snow place like home card

This card is an A2 size, 5.5" x 4.25". I made this awhile ago and I can't remember what size I made the window and pets. All the paper is printed on my imagine from Enjoy the seasons cartridge. The curtains are popped up and so are the critters and chair. I added stickles on some of the snowflakes and on the word snow. The cute sentiment is from Robin at Robin's Creative Cottage. She has some really cute stamp sets, check them out here. I'm thinking maybe if I look at this card long enough we will get some snow. We had a very brown Christmas and still no snow. It is crazy! The ski resorts are really hurting right now, they are open but limited runs and chairs.
