I'm so excited, the Thanksgiving holiday messed up me from getting my cuttlebug early but it made it today, so I am excited but I'm too tired to make a card, I did open it up and did a couple samples, I already know I'm gonna enjoy this tool.

Today, I also got blessed with my own personal table to do my crafts excited feeling crafty :)

I got my Cuttlebug from HSN the bundle includes:
6 Embossing Folders
Swiss Dots, Snowflakes, D'vine Swirl, Happy Birthday, Stylized Flowers, Thanks

2 Sets of Borders
Just my Type
With Love

2 packs of small embossing folders
Fancy Corners

2 packs of small dies

Small butterfly die with four embossing folders

Small stamp die with four embossing folders

I gotta get rested up so I can get started on my Christmas Cards.


I created this card for my cousin, I finally got it in the mail and I hope it arrives just in time for her birthday.

Cartridges I used were:
Gypsy Wanderings
Plantin Schoolbook
Wild Card

I'm really enjoying my gypsy being able to create the layout for my cards, still have alot to learn about it & all that I can do.

I have had my cricut for 7 months and my husband said he was going to make a card...he finally did it. He created what he wanted on the gypsy, and I'm impressed with his first card, of course he made it for me :)

Laying in my bed on Sunday evening, my mind begins to started running with creative ideas, with Thanksgiving coming up, I decided to get up and make a card for my mother-in-law. The Cartridge used was Wild Card (2 different styles of leaves), Gypsy Font (Letter "B")  and Gypsy Wanderings(word grateful).

We all have alot to be grateful for not only for Thanksgiving but everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Cupcakes...I really love this card, I made it for my niece but waited too late to put it in the mail :(
Cartridge used was of course, my favorite Wild Card Cartridge. I played around so I could add the second candle because she turned two I like the results that I got.

I had a couple of competitors coupons that I decided to try at Jo Ann's to purchase Cricut products. So I was so excited to see that I was able to use them for Cricut Vinyl, I got 5 colors at half off. Can't wait to begin work with vinyl.

This is a Welcome Home Card that I created for my daughter, welcoming her home after her vacation. The cartridge used was Wild Card, I really love this cartridge because it is quick way to make a card it cuts the envelope & card for you.

Goodies from Michael's

I went to Michael's this weekend and I found some goodies, wooden block stamps just in time for the Christmas holidays. I have been debating on some stamps to get but just didn't see any I like but for the price of $1 sounds great to me, I'm gonna get some more to add to collection sometimes the stamps just don't have the sayings you want so instead of buying a stamp set with only one stamp that I like I tend to check this $1 bin out at Michaels.

Here's my first real project that I did for a friend, I had to do 30 invitations for her, boy was it a task and such a great experience it gave me the confidence to continue playing around with my cricut, with the experience the lesson learned was to do things differently the next time.

The cartridge used was Wild Card for card and envelope.

Here's a card I made for my husband for our 11th year Anniversary on Oct. 9. I got the idea from CraftJunkieToo. The Cartridge that was used was Indie Art and Wild Card. The paper came from Hobby Lobby. I was very impressed with the results, after I had made the card I saw at Michaels a border bunch with same design as the paper so that is a must have for me and I will probably later recreate the card and repost another picture.
