Got to work at the craft table again. With the kids lucky enough to recieve a "really cool" game for the xbox, they were kept busy for a while. Leaving me to get some scrapbooking done. This is from Cricut's Basketball cart and the "camp" is from Varsity Lite. Thanks for letting me share!

Christmas Trees

The kids and I made some necklaces for their friends for Christmas this year. This was the holder that I made from Cricut's Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2.  Decorated with rubber stamps and markers. Was quick to do and cute to see.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and wishing you all a Happy 2013!

Birthday Card

It seems like the only time I get to make a card is when I need one. Someday, I would like to make a batch of cards, just to have on hand to give out when ready. Instead of making them a few days before I need them. Oh well, sometimes I work best under you?

I scored at a local garage sale, with the addition to my stock, a cuddlebug embossing plate. It made the embossed circles. The stamps came from a company called Paper Smooches. I found a set at Archiver's which prompted me to order two more from them directly. Here's their address:
Love them too!!
 Hope she likes her card!
Have a great day!

Loving my new cartridge....TEAM SPIRIT from Cricut!!

Two weeks ago I purchased Team Spirit off of When it came in the mail three days later, I was so excited to open it. Finally!! A tougher looking mascot for my children's school! It's ok to have a "cute" little tiger for the Elementary years, but as they get older-it just won't work.

After putting one together, the older kids were in love!! Here's what it looked like...

So, with school starting soon, binders could not be plain. My son got so many complements on his
two binders I made. Even from the teachers!!

After that, I was on a roll!! Next was water bottles. Now I am currently looking to make the whole football team water bottles with the tiger and their numbers!! Just have to find only 25 water bottles to add the vinyl tiger too.

I also added a small tiger with the sports that my kids play as a decal on my van. There isn't a picture of that....yet. I am hoping to post these onto Cricut's message board, but it all depends on how the system works with me today. I "had issues" with google earlier trying to blog from my Picasa account. Wish me luck!

Finally back to crafting!!!

Finally the kids are keeping themselves more occupied these days, so that I could get some crafting done. Summer is here, so I hope that it happens more often.

This was definately a little more work than normal, bet well worth it! I used Varsity Letter & Sports Mania along with my Gypsy. The letters were welded onto the shadow part of the basketball.

Have I told you how much I love the Smiley Cards cart that was exclusive to the Gypsy??? I LOVE IT! So much, in fact, that I was afraid to update my Gypsy for fear of losing it! After talking to Cricut support, I finally did an upgrade. Whew!! Didn't lose it!

I like to show what my kids' schedules looked like in school. Just in the five years between my first two shows you alot!

Graduation Time!! Brought out some older embossing plates for these cards and stamps from Stampin' Up. The twins that recieved them loved them!!

Been looking at these 3D cards online for a while now and thought I would give them a try. With Stamps for backgrounds, it worked rather well.

Guys version of the same card. Had two birthdays on the same day.

 Maybe I work better under pressure, since I managed to do two graduation cards & two birthday cards in one week!?!

This was made back in September (where has time flown too??). The birthday boy loved Pirates, so I played with the PPDU cart and came up with this. The idea came from the Internet, where I don't know. I surf the net to find ideas and then mix things up or come up with twists on ideas.

Happy 2012!!

I haven't been updating this site lately, but I have completed some projects. Pictures will be posted very soon. I guess I can say that if I make any New Year's Resolutions, it will be to spend more time for myself and craft more. Espically working on albums! I do have a few to do. Happy Crafting! And wishing all of you a safe, healty, and happy New Year!
