Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge

For Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge this week we were to create a scrapbook layout and use the Cricut cartridge Doodlecharms. This was a super fun challenge as I originally started scrapbooking several years ago and then got hooked on cardmaking and the scrapbooking fell by the wayside. It has been about 3 years since I have done any scrapbooking and while doing this challenge I realized how much I miss it. So thanks Emma for giving me the little push to get back to getting those family memories off the computer and in the albums. I know my grandchildren will love looking through the albums at the pictures!!
I used the Doodlecharms cartridge for the bunny head in the left corner and the Easter basket. Title was made using Storybook and the grass was done with Create-a-Critter. The bunny at the bottom right of the page and the eggs were all made with punches. Now to get the journaling done and get it in the album!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

3 x 3 Tote and Card Sets

While blog hopping a while back I came across this darling little purse that holds 3 x 3 cards. I couldn't wait to give it a try and now I am addicted. I started out making one, which led to another and then another until I ended up making 4 sets!! Inside there are two pockets-one for the cards and one for envelopes. They are so fun to make!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge #2

I created this card for the Throwback Thursday challenge this week on Emma's blog. We were to use the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and the colors blue, red and brown. Since I don't have that cartridge I used Doodlecharms which is one of the first cartridges I bought after getting my Cricut Expression and then used the required colors. It's hard to tell in the picture but there are Stickles on the swirls of "frosting" on the cupcake. Hope you have a great day and happy stamping!! TFL

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge

Emma is hosting her first Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Creative Time and this is the card I made for the challenge. We were to use the Animal Kingdom cartridge or an older Cricut cartridge to create an animal themed card. Since I just recently got my Cricut all of my cartridges are new ones so I used Create a Critter cartridge for my card. I even used my new Gypsy to design and cut the card!! Love it!! 
Thanks for visiting my blog and happy stamping!

My First Gypsy Project---thanks to EMMA!!!

This is my very first project made with my Gypsy that my husband bought me for Mother's Day. I want to thank my friend, Emma for all of her help to get my going on the Gypsy. Without her help it might still be in the box!!! LOL She is the Gypsy guru!!! She does amazing things with it and her projects are so wonderful. Check it out HERE!!! Now that I have used it, I am loving it!!!!
