Silhouette Lady Card

Hi again my friends.
I just discovered Washi tape and I Love it.
Soooo I just had to make this darling lady silhouette into a card.
To purchase the die click the link below.

I used this lovely flowered washi tape up the left side of the card. 
It's so easy to use, no glue or mess.
It sticks great and can be re-positioned without a problem. 

So fun!

I bought the washi tape on F/B from Lisa and Dawn.

If you interested in joining this group, please send me your email and I will add you.
They have tons of  all kinds of washi tapes and they are reasonably priced.

This is just a sampling of what they have

This is the inside of the card.
Again I used the washi tape alone the bottom and stamped the sentiment
from Close to my heart collection and added a rhinestone.

I'll be making more creations with my washi tape collection to share for sure.

I used Mary's Grape gift tag to make this cutout card awhile back.
I'm going to try out my washi tape on this one soon :)

I Love the USA 4th of July Cards

Happy 4th of July!

Hi all my crafty friends, I hope everyone in the US has a safe and happy 4th.

I created a couple of  red white and blue cards to share with you
Hat off to the 4th!
This quick and easy card was a delight to make.

This title was made into a card using Miss Kates USA file.

I welded it together with a rectangle at the top and pieced
each layer.
It took some time to make, but the finished card turned out great.

You can get the svg file below

A special Freebie for you today only from Miss Kates

That's it for another day my friends.
Have a wonderful 4th!

Six Father's Day Man Shirt Cards & Suitcase Gift Card Holder

Hello my crafty friends!
Today I would like to share a few Father's Day cards 
and  a Suitcase gift card holder.

Actually  for this smoking jacket, I designed the pipe and pockets and also the scalloped circle.
I also used Close to my heart papers from "Jackson". You can find the link below.

The Shirt cards are from  MyScrapChick  "Man's Card" kit.

You get a total of 8 different styles to make in this kit.
Super fun cards!!
I'll be posting the Military ones in my next post.

You can get the cutting files below.

I used strips for this one and added real buttons.
So fun! Think of the different designs you could use.

Does this look Hawaiian or what!!!
Vacation time!!

Here's the vest or sweater card looking spiffy and ready for
a game of golf. 

This is the suit card all deck out in pink and grey for a fine
evening out.

Of course we had to have this fancy Tux card
for all those special events.
It just had to have a swirl or two and a carnation to boot.

This is my Special Suitcase gift card holder and card.
I used Close To My Heart Jackson double sided 12 x 12 paper. As you
can see, one side is a rich brown designed paper and the other a beautiful
turquoise and brown pattern.
 Simply Love this paper!

I just happened to have a Trader Joe's gift card and it fit
perfectly on the front. 
For the pattern I used a 2013 file from Cre8tiveCutz  and
made it into a folding suitcase gift card holder and card.

   You can get the new Suitcase Gift Card Holder

This is the inside of my card with the cute
typewriter and Happy Father's Day from the Stamp of
 the month "Typed Note S1504. I don't believe it's available any longer, but
you can check their other great stamps here

The Jackson paper 

This shows the bottom fold, so the card can stand on it's own, just
like a real

This is a side view.
A very quick and easy Father's Day gift card holder.

Springtime St Patrick Day Recipe Album

Hello my crafty friends!
Today is your LUCKY DAY!
Yes, it's that Super Fun Green Day again.
2 FREE files!
Happy St Patrick's Day!!!

 I made this really cute recipe album to
hold special recipes.
It's similar to the Love album that I made in my last post.
 Use two thick pieces for the front and back by
doubling each layer. The inside holds all your recipes in a plastic pocket so
you can trade them out if you like. And, they are protected from any batter and such.

I added a rainbow bow and delicate flowers. You can add as many
pages as you like and it would be the perfect gift for family and friends.
So easy to make with the Cricut Explore and also the Eclips machines.
Here is the link to my recipe book in Design Space.
Click on the link and it will open in your Design Space.
Let me know if you need any instructions.
Happy Crafting!

I was asked to make 15 Cricut props for the event. Everyone is making all kinds of
cute props to make this event a fun time. I can't wait to see them all!

Whew! Now I need to put a little sparkle on each one and a pretty bow.

Name tag that I created for the event.

Tulips Bunnies and Hummingbird Springtime Love Albums

Spring has arrived and my lovely daffodils are in full bloom.
I love this time of year watching all the flowers bloom . There are 16 fruit trees
that are starting to bud and show their pretty flowers. Yes, you read that right! lol
My sister talked me into planted all those trees and now when they all ripen
 and need harvesting, she's moved to Arizona....go figure :) 

Well......this little fella looks like me as I begin to think of canning peaches, nectarines, plums apples, pears, apricots figs, concord grapes and flame red. Well I'll have a little while longer to think about all that work. Whew!

Up first is this lovely Love Album that Melody Lane created for the Patreon group. I just joined
her group over at  Melody creates some great how
to videos for the Cricut Explore and Design Studio and if you pledge just one dollar a month, she will
send you beautiful cutting files like this Love Album and more. Great gal!

I embossed the dark pink with roses and added the little bunny and gems. You can
add Easter Eggs and more for an Easter Album.

How about a little St Patty Day's LOVE album. This album is so versatile and can be made for
most any occasion.  

This beautiful Hummingbird is from the svg creations within Design Studio and 
so easy and fun to assemble. It comes with 9 pieces that fit perfectly to make this
lovely Hummingbird. He measures almost 7" tall. I put a round magnet on the back so 
you can place him on your refrigerator or anything metal. 
I simply Love how he turned out and will be making many more in my classes.

One of my favorites of all the albums is this pretty yellow and white one.
I added gems and gold tiny butterflies and flowers.
 The picture really doesn't do it justice. 
It's so Spring and I love it.

Bird has created a FREE cutting file for you to enjoy.

That's it for another day my friends. If your in the the East, I hope
Spring comes to you soon and if your in CA, then Spring has sprung :)

Have a wonderful week and keep watching for more exciting creations.
