Christmas Teacher Gift

Thanks to a wonderful long weekend I have finished my DD's class treats and teachers' gifts!  I picked up this fun bucket in the dollar section at Target.  I ADORE this line of papers by Echo Park,  I think the colors and prints are so cute!  I also tried out Ranger Liquid Pearls for the first time.  I'm sure there is an application trick for making a perfectly round pearl, but I love them anyway!  Check back tomorrow, I have some cool Christmas cards using the same line :)

Lollipop holders

Hi my crafty friends!  I am getting a jump start on my Christmas classroom treats :)

I created a file in Cricut Craftroom that will cut 4 of the Cristmas tree holders at one time so I can just cycle my mats through. (I need to cut 90!)  You can download the file HERE.  Just simply score in the middle, add your layer, and decorate to your hearts content :)

I added holes to the butterfly file so you can add ribbon and tie it closed.  You can get the file HERE. 

Both files use the FREE Cricut Craftroom Basics cartridge so EVERYONE will be able to cut it :D

Please enjoy these FREE files to your hearts content, but DON"T share them!  Let your friends come here to download their own copies.  Thank you :)

Cherry pie with cherries on top! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday.  I am blessed to have a four day weekend!  I have avoided the black friday crowds and hunkered down in my studio to tackle some Christmas projects.  I will have some fun stuff to show you soon :) 

But first...

I wanted to share my fun cherry pie from Thanksgiving!  I used the Hello Kitty cartridge to cut these cherries at 2.5 inches.  Pie crust is super simple to run through your cricut cake.  Simply roll it out thin on your mat, freeze for 5-10 min, cut and decorate!  I hope this will inspire you to dress up your next pie!

Thanks for visiting!

Page Pals

Emma at My Creative Time has challenged everyone to make a child theme project for her Throwback Thursday contest.  Inspired by the new Cricut Craftroom exclusives, we decided that "Page Pals" would be a fun treat.   I decided to fiddle around with the idea and here is what I came up with...

To create your own Page Pals you will need:

Fold the flaps in to form a square and secure with a strong adhesive like Terrifically Tacky Tape.  Then ink your edges, apply your chosen embelishments, and enjoy!

MPS blog hop 11-11-11

Hi my crafty friends!  I'm so excited to share a layout with you!  This is my Lexi the first time she played in the snow at 18mos!  I'm so glad Robyn challenged us to get some scrapping done.  I have about 500 pics printed off and ready to be scrapped.  I will try to get some more done this weekend! 

My layout is very simple-  I used this pretty paper I picked up at my LSS last year, and some Hero Arts stamps to add to the theme. 

I hope you will join in the hop.  Start at and link up your project :)

Harry Potter card

Random project for today :)  Hubs brought home a new Kodak printer because our old model is about dead, and it came with Harry Potter design gallery software.  It took about 5 min of playing around to create this background paper and sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday invite using CCR

Carts used:
Plantain Schoolbook
Damask Decor
Life is a Beach
Cricut Sampler

Cricut Craftroom is a new online design tool offered by Provocraft.  The software is still in Beta testing, and there are still several quirks to be worked out.

I finally got my invite to Craftroom about two weeks ago.  I have had a hard time using the print/cut feature with my Imagine, but the print only, and cut only features are working really well!  I used CCR to design this birthday invite, and then I used the print-only feature to print it in one layer.  I then used my paper trimmer to cut it down to size.  I'm very happy with how it turned out and I can't wait to see what features will be available soon!
