Xmas Tags

I'm trying really heard to get in the mood to make Xmas cards, but I feel like the season is coming so fast that I havent had the chance to enjoy Fall. So I started with some tags. I used the "sweethearts" cricut cartridge to make the cut-out of the gift boxes in the tags. Cute huh? and its a "love/ wedding" cartridge! who knew!?

New from the Video

After the little shopping I did and the new products I got, I had to make a card [or something]. using the Cosmo cricket 'nutmeg' line I made this super cute thanksgiving card. I also used the glueglider pro and I must say I was surprised at how well it sticks. I tried to peel something off and I could feel that its gonna rip off and mess up the paper. So I'm loving it! but still getting used rolling the tape on to the edge.

scanning and Cropping

I'm not making any projects today. Thought I'd take a little break. But I am still working in my scrap corner tonight. Last night as I was falling asleep,or at least trying to, I had a Great Idea. As always I get my best ideas while trying to fall asleep, awesome!
My problem was that I have some great magazine from "creating keepsakes" with great scrapbook layouts (that's not the problem), but there is soo many to look through to get the right fit. So my genius idea last night was, "what if i scan my fav. layouts on to my computer and organize them by how many pages a layout has and pictures per layout, Or at least something along those lines.
So tonight I'm working on the "great idea". So far I've scanned 4 1/2 magazines and working on cropping the scans. Looks like this project is gonna take me a few nights to finish. So looks like I'll be off my blog for a bit, unless the scanning and cropping will drive me crazy and will need to take a break.
We'll see. Wish me luck... and Patience.

8x8 Layouts

Just thought I'd do a post before heading to bed. Made these 3- 8x8 Layouts today. I kinda have a theme for this album and that "My husband and I". And and [maybe] all photos that we take I'll try to scrapbook and watch us grow old. lol. *wink*wink*
I'm out! Good Night!
P.S. my scaner isnt the greatest =P

I'm back with more hehehe.

So you ask me what have I been up to today?? Well, other than going home early from work, I scrapbooked my 8x8 album. And let me tell you, I've forgotten how Fun and easy its to scrapbook smaller pages! So I got carried away. hehehe.
The first layout is called "Sweet Moments" features the "wall decor and more" cartridge, its the compass. The only problem I had was that the 'N' for North was Tiny! and wouldn't cut well, so I put some rhinestones instead. The paper I used is by Making Memories "Chloe's closet".

Here is a closer look.

This is my First Ever circle Layout! And I love it!
The paper is also my Making Memories "Flea Market" and the title is my K&K Co "Carolyn Gavin"

Paper by Basic Grey "Nook&Pantry"

My last layout for tonight is Making Memories "Just chillin"

Wow didn't realize how my Making memories paper I had! But its so Cute! I cant help my self.


Got some more cards by "wall decor and more" cartridge by Cricut. I really am enjoying. My plan for today is make a scrapbook layout using 1 or more of the super cute icons the cartridge has to offer.
The paper I also used here is my favorite! Nook&Pantry by Basic Gray! Love it!

P.S. this is my 100th Post! Woot woot
... in 2 years =P

Take Flight

Alright so here is the First card from my new 'Wall decor and more' cartridge. I am enjoying it, but need to think a little more out side of the box when designing cards with cartridges. I'm working on it so that means more cards to come in the near future!
This on is being sent out for my nephews bday next week. I think he'll like it.

P.S. Did you notice the new layout/ Background? what do you think?
