Batman Birthday Card

My oldest son, Cameron, turned 5 this year. So, he will start kindergarten in 3 weeks. (No tears, right?) He loves Batman. I made this card using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. Batman was cut at 3 1/4". The car is 1 3/4". I put velcro on all of the pieces except the road; so, he can play with them on a flannel board. Now, that I think about it-I should have put velcro on the road as well. I hope you enjoy!

Happy 5th Birthday Card

It has been a long time since I have posted. We went on vacation and had a great time! I made this birthday card for my youngest son to give to his brother. The dog is from the Celebrations Cricut cartridge cut at 4". The balloons are from the same cartridge cut at 3". Thanks for looking!

Anniversary Card

I cannot believe I am posting two days in a row to my blog. Hopefully, I can keep it up. I made this card for my husbands parents. They have been married over 55 years. It is simple. And I just had to buy a Happy Anniversary stamp for it. LOL Any excuse to buy something new! I did use my Gypsy to design it. I used the Happily Ever Cartridge. I found a poem and printed it on the inside. Thanks for looking!

Scrapbook Room

This is my multi-function room. I had to move my cartridges to my computer desk from the shelf over my table. They were too heavy for the shelf. So, now I have room to put more. This layout works better for me. Thanks for looking!

Scrapbook Room

i made that owl a long time ago. And somehow my room is slowly being taken over by owls. They are just so cute, especially on the cartridges. I have my Cricut and Gypsy next to my computer. The mats and 12x24 mats and paper are stored underneath.

Scrapbook Room

This is my table. I love having the pegboard over my table. We spray painted it and my sweet husband hung it up.

Scrapbook Room

I finally have my sewing machine set up. Now, to learn how to use it. I would love to quilt one of these days. Maybe when the boys are grown. LOL! My husband laughed when I showed him I had it set up.

Scrapbook Room

This is most of my paper. This is right by the door. I would love to have a tall wooden paper holder; but, this will have to do for now. These were from Target.

My Scrapbook Room

I finally re-arranged my room. It always seems to be neglected. I love the way it turned out. My oldest wanted to be in the picture. Usually, he does not want to be in the picture. This room is also the guest room and office as well. My table is usually not this neat. I have 3 layouts waiting to be completed for over a month now! Thanks for looking! This is how the room looks when you first walk in.

Gypsy Manual

I did not like the fact that the gypsy manual did not fit in the bag; so, I reprinted it at 50%. Then, I cut two cardboard pieces to size. I used the Grandpa's Attic paper and glued it to the cardboard. Then, I drilled holes for the two rings. I glued on the flowers. I cut out Gypsy using the Jasmine cricut cartridge and glued it down. This project took no time at all. It was nice to actually complete something. Hope you like it! Thanks for looking!

Ahoy Mateys Layout

I love to scrapbook 12x12 layouts. This one was made a while ago as well. The pirate was cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I hand draw all my faces. I do not own any of the peachy keen stamps. They are on a long wish list! The pirate ship and skull were also cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The title is from Printing 101 cartridge. I hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Patch Layout

This layout I made a long time ago. The pumpkin and vine were cut from the Cricut Happily Ever After cartridge. The title is cut from the Cricut Jasmine cartridge. I use my Cricut on almost everything I make. The buttons I had for years. Thanks for looking!

Christmas Layout

This picture was taken in 2007. The Santa was cut out from some cute paper and I added a button. The "dreams of" phrase was cut from Jasmine Cricut cartridge. The ornament circles were cut from Accent Essentials cricut cartridge. The ornament top is from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. It was part of a stocking. I antiqued the color of the photo as well. Thanks for looking!

Love Layout

This is one of my favorite pictures of my first son. He was still in the hospital. My dad is holding him and my mom took the picture. I have had this layout set up for months and sadly have still not glued it down. It seems to take me a while to actually glue down a layout. I feel like it is missing something; but, I do not know what. I wanted to keep it simple. Thanks for looking!

Ahoy Mateys! Layout

I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for this layout. I like this picture. My boys love to play with swords. And, the little one has daddy's shoes on-which he likes to do with daddy's and my shoes. The font is Printing 101 cartridge. Thanks for looking!

Some Looks are Priceless Layout

This 12x12 layout is simple. I thought the paper was too pretty to add lots of embellishments. The font is from the Jasmine Cricut cartridge. These pictures are of my youngest son. He will turn 3 next month. He is such a character! Thanks for looking!

2nd Soccer Layout

This layout is next to the previous soccer layout in my 12x12 album. He posed like this on his own. So, I told him to freeze because I wanted to take a picture. I love this picture! I used Sports Mania Cricut cartridge for this layout as well. I love making 12x12 layouts. Hope you enjoy!

Soccer Ball Layout

I used the Sports Mania cartridge for this layout. This is my oldest son's first soccer practice. He had such a great time! It took a couple of tries to get the pictures to fit inside the soccer ball. I enjoyed making this layout! Thanks for looking!

Thank You Card

I made this thank you card tonight. I used the Stamping cricut cartridge. Both the butterfly border and the thanks so much were cut at 2 inches. Thanks for looking!

Birthday Card

I made this card for my younger son to give to his daddy for his birthday. My younger son, Colby, did not seem to understand that the card was for daddy. He liked it so much that he kept it in his room for the longest time. I used the Cricut cartridge celebrations for the dog.

Husband's Birthday Card

I made this for my husband's birthday card this year. A simple card but cute. I typed the poem on transparency and stapled it to the card in the corners. Hope you enjoy!

Whoo Do I Love?

I created this memory board for the cricut contest. My scrapbook room seems to have an owl theme. They are just so cute! I used the Paisley cartridge for the owls and the mushrooms. Everything but the letters are on velcro; so, that I can change it out. Thanks for looking!
