World Card Making Day

I decide to do some cards for the World Cardmaking Day that took place on Saturday October 3, 2009. The idea came from the Scrapbooking and Cardmaking Magazine Blog to make a card for every month. Imade January-Thank you, February-Valentines Day, March-Girl birthday, April-Thinking of U, May-Mothers Day. I hardly make cards, so this is my first try on making cards and following a sketch. For a first timer it seemed forever in completing a card but I had fun making them and will continue to complete the rest of the months.

I also used my cricut machine and Design Studio to do Tree, Letters, Borders, Tags, and the cardstock paper I used Papertrey,Recollections(from M's), Joanns white paper. The pattern papers were from DCVW The Glitter Stack,K&Co Seasonal. I'm trying to use all of my scrap paper. Don't forget to click on each picture for a close up.

Halloween Shape Book using DS

Thank you Bug Junkie for posting a great tutorial video in How to create a shape book using Design Studio. I had my DS for about 7 months and never even tried to create something but watching the video it made so easy, so I decide to go ahead and create a Halloween shape book. I used Recollections Halloween paper and K &Company Seasonal Paper. Each Die cut I glitter and emboss. Added ribbon and used my bind it all. The cartridges I used are paper doll dress up and george.

Scrapbook Layouts

I created some scrapbook layouts of both my girls. The cartridges that I used are Xmas and Tooth Fairy:Winter Woodland, Swim Time and School Photo: Simply Sweet and life is a beach.

Vinyl Project

I finally figured out how to create lettering with vinyl. I always wanted to make my daughter's name and pasted it on their doors. I thought it was going to be hard but it's easy. The cartridges are guitar: Hannah Montana, Crown and Letters are from Alphalicious.

The school bus was from Doodlecharms and the Fonts and embellishments were from Simply Sweet. Her teacher was nice to share her photos she took through out the year, Thank you Ms. Martin and Mrs. McQuillan. The ribbons are from an old stack I had purchase from HSN. The paper is from DCVW Grade School. This was my first time using the Bind it all machine.

Father's Day Gift Card

I found this idea @ the scrapbookmemories show is the Traveling Suitcase Accordion Card. I decide to make it for my dad.

The Corners are from EK Success punch and the font was JubiLee cartridge.

Alyssa's Schoolwork Book

I finally finished my daughters schoolwork book. It contains all of her work she brings home from school. I will continue doing this project thru her elementary years(if it make sense).Ok, I got this project idea from Paperclippings but I used my cricut to cut all of my fonts and shapes. The Cartridges that I used were Mickey Fonts, Sans Serif, Locker Talk. Now the paper I used was from WeRMemoryKeeper WhiteOut Collections, Cardstock Michaels Paper. Some of the embellishments were from DCWV Spring Glitter Chipboard, Martha Stewart Glitter, Michaels embossing powder. I purchased Lisa Bearnson Foam Stamps that she had last Dec, I used the Numbers(math divider), Letters(vocabulary divider) and the frame with dots that I stamped on the transparency Sheet(this is the one in the class photo). And of course I used my cropadileII to punched holes and attached the gromlets. I was forgetting, I altered a File Folder, it can either be used or new. Also, you will see that I used some tickects as tabs. Don't forget to click each picture.(that goes with the rest of my posting, too)

All of my cricutlovers group ladies, thank you for all your help on how to use my cricut..hey don't be strangers and add yourself to my blog..
