Some cards and a cut created from Paisley

Ok I am to sure why for the last few days (since I got this cart) I have been having such a block on how to do the designs.... well I guess I got unblocked because in about an hour maybe less I created two cards and a cut I will put on a card later from Paisley.....


LOVE that Cart!!!!!

There has been a bunch of talk about making your own embossing folders using the Cricut- I didnt make a folder but I did make an embossing plate here is the plate and some of the stuff I Embossed

This is created (using recycled materials) cut the image using multi cut (would probably work better with the deep cut blade - any way I used an old box from the kitchen I have heard of cereal and others I used a box from crackers (they are all about the same thickness - I also used my Xyron Sticker machine to stick the cut to the plain piece of board (note you do not want the board any bigger than a standard folder.  To emboss the item you need a rubber mat I went to Lowes and got a rubber plumbers mat it was very  enexpensive, I bought 2 so I will have one on hand, I then used the rubber mat on top of the paper to make the embossing plate like a folder.... worked great.... I will post pictures of how to do it later... will edit this post.

  Heres the Embossed paper added inking and stickles to give it some more texture....

Been playing with the Mothersday cart.

Heres a little card I came up with still not sure of the sentiment - was thinking Birthday or thank you but can't figure out the font yet.... we shall see.

One more quilt - this was before I finished the top

These are some dishcloths I knitted


More cards

These are cards I made some were just trying stuff others are actually for people....





These are a set of thank you cards I made for my mom to send to people

Ok so the question is - is she going to send them out or keep them because I made them :-)





OK here are some of my cards - Most have Cricut or Cuttlebug embellishments

I am still learning and I also only have a few Cartridges but I am working on that have 4 on order.... and I recently got a couple I haven't done much with yet.... so I will be creating many more - and hopefully getting better !





here are some bags i have made (these are for sale on Etsy)

Both these bags are made out of completely recycled clothing....
I plan on doing an entire line of unique bags to sell

tri fold card - love these and they are fun and easy
