I Miss Being Creative!!

I sooooo............... miss playing and cutting and gluing... I have lots of ideas rumbling around in my head. BUT, I have several projects I HAVE to get done BEFORE I can play!!
1. Tory's Graduation Announcements (MAILED)
2. Senior Class Video ready for baccalaureate
3. Alisha's Engagement shots done and ready for proofing

I think that is all I have on my list this week!!

Life's A Beach ~ Card

For this card I just felt creative. My daughter has asked me to make a foot card. She was giving gift cards for pedicures and wanted a foot card to go with them. I used my Cricut to cut out the shapes. The foot is from New Arrival and the flop flop was created using shapes from George. For example the thong on the flip flop is the letter "Y" from George just upside down!! I really enjoyed making this card.

Special Delivery - Baby Girl Shower Invitation

I was blog surfing and found this cute onesie card by Lauren Meader. I had to scrap lift!! Lauren has directions on her blog... but I needed to make 25-30 for my dd's shower invites... so I created a .cut file using George. After emailing the original designer Lauren Meader, she gave me her blessing to share the .cut file.... Yipee!! If you want the same stamp I used the rubber stamp is from Lizzie Anne Designs. I have to say that the customer service at Lizzie Anne Designs was FANTASTIC and that Lauren is very sweet and very talented!! Please go and visit her blog she has some amazing work there!!

Flower Baby Mini Bag

Yesterday I was on Martha Stewart's web site, she had templates for these cute mini bags. Her bags were printables. Ready to print out with her designs on them.... Well her taste and my taste aren't always are the same, especially when it comes to graphic arts. So this morning I used her template as a starting point and re-created it in Illustrator. I then used clip art from PCcrafter and made the bag my own!!
I printed out some of my papers to coordinate my "flower baby" with my "mini bag". I used Pccrafters Debbie Crabtree - Welcome Spring Creatable. I hand cut out the butterfly and folded the wings and just glued the body to the bag, to give it a 2D dimensional look.

Mr. Skully - Skull and Crossbones

I saw that a member of the Cricut Community was looking for a Skull and Cross bones, and made a challenge for someone to make one!! I need practice with the program Design Studio so I took the challenge. I created this last night and this morning the program crashed and I lost the whole thing.... I had even saved it many many times while making it! I think leaving the program open all night is where the problem began. I sat down today and watched a movie and remade him!! I hope you like my Mr. Skully!!
