And the Winners Are...

First off, I apologize for not posting this sooner. Life has been hectic around our house the last couple of days. After living for over a year with no flooring in most of our downstairs, we finally got tile installed this past weekend. (long story involving bad plumbing and insurance. I won't bore you with the details.) Between moving everything out, putting it back, and cleaning up, I am exhausted! Now we still have to do our Christmas decorating. I think we may just put the tree up this year.

So, on to the fun stuff. The winners of the Christmas Blog Hop giveaways, chosen by Random.org, are:
Day one, Christmas Cards cartridge- Teachermom
Day two, embellishments- Jody/Coo-Coo Cricut
I'll be getting in touch so I can get these mailed to you ASAP.

I have to thank all the wonderfully talented ladies from the Circle who were part of the hop. You made my first hop a great experience.

Also, thank you to everyone for your kind comments. I do appreciate them. One of the best things to me about being part of the crafting community is that we all share and inspire each other. If I have inspired anybody to do something creative, well that just makes me feel good!

A special thank you to those of you who have become followers. To me that is the best compliment!

I'm glad you all decided to join us for the hop. Definitely planning to do more in the future. For now, I'll just settle for getting things back to normal at my house, whatever that is!

Take care,
Maria

Christmas Blog Hop, Day Two


Hello and welcome to day two of our Christmas Blog Hop. If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from http://fantabulouslypink.blogspot.com/ . If you missed any of the other blogs, I have them listed below.

Today's project is definitely something different for me but I am so pleased with the results! I found these ornaments in the Oriental Trading Catalog in October and thought they would work great with some Cricut cuts. The back is flat and measures about 2 3/4" by 2" so you are somewhat limited to the images you can use. First, I placed paper on the inside back using Mod Podge. I also applied Mod Podge to the inside edges of the front and sprinkled with Martha Stewart Snow Glitter. The images are from the Christmas Cards cartridge and are cut at 2 1/4". Instead of cutting the individual layers, I cut the main layer, or largest, of each image 3 times and put foam tape between each layer.Then I attached it to the ornament back with foam tape. After it was all put together, I glued a piece of ribbon around the outer edge then added some greenery to the top. Oh, and the paper I used on the snowman's hat and scarf is from some cards from the Michael's dollar bin. Thanks to Envys from goingbuggy.blogspot.com for the idea!

Brads , Oriental Trading and Queen and Co.; Paper, Deja Views Fair Isle Christmas and scraps; Glitter, Martha Stewart Snow glitter and Crystal Fine glitter; Ribbon, Michaels; Flat back pearls, Stampin Up.

And now, here is today's blog candy. Lots of embellishments to help finish up those Christmas projects. I've also included 2 of the plastic ornament. Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
Thanks so much for joining us in our Christmas Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did creating for it. Again, here is a list of the other participants.
Happy Holidays,
Maria

Christmas Blog Hop

Hi. I'm so excited to be participating in my very first blog hop! This is the last stop on the hop and you probably arrived here from http://fantabulouslypink.blogspot.com/. If you just happened to stop by and would like to start at the beginning, I've listed the other blogs at the end of this post. This is a two day hop and I have some blog candy to give away on each day. To be eligible to win all you have to do is leave a comment on the posts. I'll draw the winners on Tuesday, December 7th. Oh, and please leave a way for me to get a hold of you. Today's give away is the Cricut Christmas Cards Winter Collection cartridge. Ok, so now on to today's project. Since I'm giving away a copy of the Christmas Cards cart, I thought I would use mine in my projects. Here's the first card. I didn't use the cut sentiment, but instead opted for a stamp.
Card and layers cut at 4.5"; Stamped sentiment, Flourishes; Embossing powder, Clear tops Black Gems; Glitter, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine; Snow writer; Glossy accents;
Paper,DejaViews Fair Isle Christmas, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red

Ok, so I intended to use the Christmas Cards cart exclusively, but then I got a copy of Jolly Holidays and had to use it. The images are so cute! On this one I cut her face in white then colored with Copic marker E000. I used R23 on her cheeks. I've had those little buttons forever and added some baker's twine to them before placing them on her dress.
Girl 2 image cut at 3.25" Paper, Kaiser Craft Wishlist; Glitter button, Recollections; Stamp Sentiment, Recollections; Ink, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red; Nestability Beaded Circle die

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. Don't forget to leave a comment today for a chance at winning the cartridge. Please stop back tomorrow, I actually made something besides cards! I will also have some fun blog candy again.

Gingerbread Couple

Here's a quick and easy card I made using the new Gingerbread Seasonal Mini cartridge. I love gingerbread men, so this cart was a must have for me! I love how easy the images go together. I plan on using it for at least a few of my Christmas cards.
The paper for the cute couple is from K and Co, Yultide. I used a Peachy Keen stamp on their faces. The plaid paper is from DCWV, Homemade Christmas. The top piece was cut with a Martha Stewart Loop edge punch and I wrapped some baker's twine around it. also from Martha Stewart. The stamped sentiment is from Recollections and the buttons from the Michael's dollar bin.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day.

And the Bride Wore...Converse?

This past Saturday my best friend's youngest daughter was married. Her colors were purple and orange, which I thought a bit odd, but it worked. The theme, I guess, was Converse. As in the tennis shoes. Yes, the bride and the entire wedding party wore them. (Not the groom though, he wore his Air Force dress blues so that would have been a no-no.) Anyway, I discovered a new talent, flower arranging and bouquet making! I was at her house all morning Friday helping to make the bouquets (6 total), corsages and boutonnieres. Fortunately my daughter has done this before, so she knew exactly what to do. I have decided that I much prefer working with paper! The wedding was beautiful, the weather couldn't have been more perfect and everything went off without a hitch. Here's the card I made for them.
The shoe cut is from the Lite cartridge, Slumber Party. It was too perfect! The background paper is from the DCWV Fairy Tale Princess stack. The lace is Wright's. The label is from Spellbinders Fancy Tags set. The sentiment was computer generated. The jewels are from Imaginesce. The other papers and ribbon were scraps I had on hand.
I hope they like the card and I also wish them many years of happiness together!
Thanks for stopping by.

Naughty or Nice?

After spending hours organizing my scraps this weekend, I had some time to actually create something. As for the scraps, I found a rolling hanging file holder. I was looking for something without a lid and this is perfect because it rolls right under my desk. So now my scraps are all organized by color in individual file folders and all is good, for now!

Now for the card... I made this with this weekends Circle challenge in mind. The challenge was to use a cartridge you own but haven't used. I'm happy to say, with the exception of some new ones, I don't have too many I haven't used at least once. Anyway, I went one better and used a stamp set I haven't used yet either.
The Santa is a stamp from Stampin Up's Jolly Old St. Nick set. I colored it with Copic markers. His hat band and pom pon were heat embossed with Ranger Seafoam White embossing powder. His mustache and beard were highlighted with a Twinkles Writer by DecoArt. The tag was cut from the Cricut Trim the Tree cart at 5". The top layer was covered with Holly Stickles. A button from the Michael's dollar bin was added with some Martha Stewart baker's twine. The sentiment stamp is from Scrappy Moms. It was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black then traced over with a Copic Glitter marker in black. The bottom layer of the card was machine stitched with red thread.
I enjoyed working on this card and I think I'm ready to start getting some more Christmas cards made!

My Super Heroes!

This year, without any planning, Carter and Gigi ended up being Superman and Wonder Woman for Halloween. Carter's costume was store bought, but I made Gigi's. Sewing used to be my first love until I discovered the Cricut. I made all my kid's Halloween costumes every year and some for friends and nieghbor's children too! I thought I was off to a good start, getting the fabric and other supplies well ahead of time. But, of course, I waited until the last minute to start sewing. I quickly realized how out of practice I was! I actually had to cut out the top again and completely start over. Once I got into it though and started remembering some of my shortcuts things went a lot smoother. I think it came out pretty cute and she looked darn cute wearing it! I am definitely going to start sewing more though. Will just have to give up one day with the Cricut and dedicate it to my sewing machine instead.
Gigi and her big cheesy grin!
Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Card for My Mom

My mom will be celebrating her 85th birthday this Saturday. She lives in FL, so unfortunately we won't be together but she knows I'll be thinking about her!
The paper is from Cosmo Cricket, the Pixielicious stack. I used the Gypsy to design and cut this card, I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it! The pitcher is from Country Life and the lacy scallop circle is from Cindy Loo. The tag is from Gypsy Wanderings. I added some jewels from Tulip and put them on with the Tulip heat set tool.

Test Tube Candy Holders

This is a project I've been working on for a while! I got the Martha Stewart test tubes on sale at Michael's and remembered seeing some cute paper holders someone had made for them. I found them here http://www.lisasomerville.com/ After much trial and error, I was able to create a cut file on the Gypsy for my own test tube holders. I only did a single one, but plan to work on a double one shortly.

These were made with they Gypsy cut file, then decorated with various Cricut cuts, stamps, border punches and ribbons.
This is the only double one I made and I used the template at Lisa's blog and hand cut it.
Have a fun and safe Halloween and thanks for stopping by!

Circle challenge #4, BOO!

This is my entry for this week's challenge and my first stair step card. I was able to get a couple of pictures before my camera battery died, and of course the main one is a little blurry. Oh well.
I got the directions for the stair step card from the Splitcoast Stampers sight. All the images are from the Cricut Mini Monsters, except the tree, which is from Paper Doll Dress Up. The dotted paper is from Bo Bunny and the rest was made from my scrap stash. The ghost was cut from vellum, one of the challenge requirements, and his face is a Peachy Keen stamp. The monster in front is covered with Lime Green Stickles and the tree with Martha Stewart Hematite glitter. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper, the Spooky Puns set.
A couple of close ups showing some of the detail. I love that mummy!
Thanks for stopping by!

An Imagine Birthday Card

Good Sunday afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I've spent most of my time working on baby shower invites and decorations and this card for my mother in law. Her birthday is next Saturday.
The background paper was created on the Imagine using the print paper feature. It basically allows you to create a 12 X 12 piece of printed card stock. The pattern is from the Blossom Imagine Art cartridge. The fence and flowers were also printed and cut on the Imagine with images from the Bloom Lite cartridge. The colors used are also from the Blossom cartridge. The fence cut was mounted to the card base with foam tape. The sign is from Camp Out and the sentiment is computer generated. Eyelets from Making Memories were attached then some decorative wire was threaded through them so that it could "hang" on the fence. Jewels from Recollections were added to the flower centers and the flowers were covered with Pink Crystal Color Lacquer. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, punched out twice. One butterfly was mounted to the card with foam tape, then the second to that one with more foam tape.
Here's a close up of the butterfly. I love the dimension. And here's the inside of the card with more of the punched butterflies and edging done with Stampin Up Barely Banana ink. I did write the verse myself, though it wasn't too difficult!
Thanks again for stopping by and checking out my work. The card got my husband's approval, so hopefully his mom will like it too! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Stampin Up Only Santa Card

I'm participating in a card swap hosted by my SU rep, Barb (aka snowmanlover). She requested that we make our cards using only SU products. This was actually hard for me because I really wanted to add some Stickles or other bling and I discovered that I don't have any SU ribbon or sentiment sets. I ended up using one of the older sets, Happy Ho-Ho Holidays.
All stamps are from the the same set. The card base is made from Glorious Green cardstock and is cut to A2 size.The tag was hand cut and stamped with Tempting Turquoise and faux stitching was added with a Real Red marker. The Santa is colored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and adhered to the tag with dimensionals. A real red corduroy button was added to the top of the tag. The lower layer was cut with the Scallop Trim border punch and faux stitched with the real red marker. The sentiment was also stamped with real red. The lace border is a piece of glorious green cut with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch. A real red corduroy button with twine was also added. The bottom layer is real red embossed with the Sizzix Large Dots embossing plate.
This was a fun, if not challenging card to make. Definitely made me realize how much I rely on my Cricut and other embellishments. Guess it also means I need to buy some more SU products!
Thanks for stopping by!

Circle Blog Think Pink challenge entry

Hi everyone! This week the Circle Blog's challenge is Think Pink. We were challenged to create something using 2 cuts and to include 3 of the following: Pink, ruffles, scallops, jewels, flourishes and glitter. The prize, or I should say prizes, are awesome. They are giving away 1 Pink Expression with the Pink Journey cartridge and 5 additional Pink Journey cartridges. I am coming down to the wire with my entry, but no way was I going to miss out on this opportunity!
My entry is a tribute of sorts to my sweet poodle, Dixie. This picture was taken of her when she was about 3 months old. She's 5 now, but still looks at me with that same expression. The whole pink frilly thing is kind of ironic though, because Dixie is not this type of poodle. She loves nothing better than to play fetch, and if there is any mud anywhere, she'll find it. We used to have a koi pond in our back yard, and I swear, every time she came home from the groomers she would head straight for it and jump in! She is definitely a unique personality and I couldn't imagine life without her.
All the paper is from Stampin Up. The poodle was cut from the Once Upon a Princess cart, run through the Xyron and covered with Martha Stewart Onyx glitter. The sentiment is from Forever Young and cut from shimmer paper from WalMart. A SU Eyelet border punch was used on the pink border. The lace is from Kaisercraft and the jewel flourishes from Prima.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did making it. Thanks for stopping by!

Last one, Circle Weekend Challenge!

Well, here is the final card for the Circle weekend challenge. This one was a color challenge with the SU colors black, pumpkin pie and bashful blue. I found out after I had already made my card that you're supposed to use mainly these colors and can add in some neutrals if necessary. As you can see, I used other colors and just included the challenge colors. Ah well, I really like the paper and have been wanting to use it for something!
The ghoul is from Mini Monsters and is cut from green glitter paper from the DCWV Midnight Spell solid stack. The sentiment is a $1 stamp from Michael's and the label is SU bashful blue cut with a Nestability inverted scallop circle. The spider is a brad from Recollections. The background paper is from Bo Bunny, The Whoo-ligans collection. The border is SU pumpkin pie and was cut with the Drippy Goo punch from MS and another which I can't remember the name of!
This has been a fun weekend of challenges. I've never done this before and will definitely be up for doing more!
Thanks for stopping by.

Imagine cards, Circle weekend challenge #2 and 3

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. The the second challenge this weekend was to create something for any holiday. I chose Christmas since it is my favorite and I need to start thinking about this year's cards.
This card is a 4 1/2" square. The white piece was cut with a Lacy Scallop square Nestability, the largest of the set. The print square in the center is from Imaginisce, the Cottage Christmas collection, and it was stitched to the lacy square. All the image cuts were made with the Imagine and Winter Frolic cartridge. The colors for the mouse and letters were made using RGB codes from tayloredmkt.com. The shadow and box were printed with a pattern from the Imagine More cart. Peachy Keen stamps were used to make the mouse's face. His body is outlined with a brown Copic Glitter marker. Red and pink Stickles were used on the bow and mouse ear.
For the 3rd challenge were were given a sketch. I found this Stampin Up Something Sweet set that I haven't used and decided to use this sentiment. Again, the Imagine was used for all the cuts and everything is from the Imagine More cartridge. The small squares were cut with George and Basic Shapes. The background paper is from my scrap stash. The faux stitching was done with a brown Copic glitter marker. (I really like those things!)
Whew, I think that's everything! This has been a lot of fun so far and I think has really gotten me motivated to get some stuff done. I have one more challenge to complete for this and the Circle Blog. I think I may use the same for both. I also have a fun Halloween project that involved creating something on the Gypsy. Hopefully I'll get those done this week too.
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Circle board weekend challenge, using circles

Confused? Well, over on the Circle message board there's a weekend challenge going on for those of us not lucky enough to go to the Cricut Swarm in Utah this weekend. A different challenge every day and some folks have even donated some nice prizes. The first challenge was to make something with circles on it.
I decided to find a stamp I hadn't used yet and go from there. When I found this one I immediately thought of the Rock Princess cartridge and when I came across this image, well, it all just fell into place. I used Mini Monograms for the circles and the stamp is from Unity. I covered the bike with Crystal Color Lacquer and a light sprinkle of MS glitter. The flower brad is from OTC. The background paper is My Mind's Eye.
Here's a close up of the stamp. Now, mind you, I never would have told my girls this when they were teenagers, but I guess there's nothing wrong with being a little daring once in a while!
Thanks for stopping by!

First Imagine Card (and a little about my saga)

After deciding I was not going to buy an Imagine, I caved and bought one during the HSN launch. It arrived sooner than expected and I was very excited to get it up and running. Slight problem though, it would not do the cut calibration. How quickly my excitement turned to frustration as I realized there was something wrong with my I. I called PC the next day and after a little over an hour of troubleshooting, it was determined that I did indeed have a defective machine and it would have to returned and exchanged for another. Happily they did get my new Imagine to me quickly and this one has worked like a charm. I still wasn't sure if I would like the I, but the more I use it the more I see the possibilities, especially since you can use the original cartridges in it too. Well, enough rambling, here's my card...
I used the Imagine More cartridge for all the patterns and cuts. I created the background by cutting a 51/2 in square with GBS then trimming it down to my usual 51/2 X 41/4. I used a scallop border punch on the strip across the bottom. Then I added an MPS stamp from the More Punny-liscious set and some buttons with twine. I did use foam tape on the scallop circle and the cow, but it's hard to tell from the picture. I'm hoping to get some more time to play this weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #1

The Circle Blog is up and running. Every week they are hosting a challenge and all the entrants will be put in a random drawing for $25 credit with Cricut.com. This week's challenge is to use the French Manor cartridge to create a project. It must include 2 cuts and some type of jewels or pearls. Here is my submission.
The bird and background label are, of course, from French Manor. The paper is from The Paper Studio Seasons Greetings stack. The bird was cut from a shimmery off white MS paper. The stamp is from Flourishes and is heat embossed with Clear Tops Bright Chocolate Brown. The flower was made with Wright's lace and a Recollections pearl was glued to the center. The small pearls around the label are also Recollections. You can find directions for making the flower here:

Birthday Card for a Dear Friend

My good friend Ginger is celebrating her birthday today. We met when she started dating Tim's best friend in high school a few months after Tim and I started dating. Fortunately, we liked each other from the start and coincidentally our birthdays are just one day apart. [That means my birthday is tomorrow, in case you didn't catch that!;) ] As fate would have it we all ended up here in TX together and have celebrated our birthdays together every year for the past 20 years. No matter what's going on in each others lives, it's the one thing we always make time to do and I look forward to it every year.
I found the sentiment on line and the tree image immediately came to mind. The tree came from Wall Decor and More and the label from Lacy Labels. The background is from the DCWV Amber Autumn stack and the red and brown are from the coordinating solid stack. The off white square is from MS and actually has a pretty shimmer to it that doesn't show in the picture. I didn't think it looked feminine enough, so I added some small adhesive beads from Recollections and a bow with ribbon by Offray. I am so happy with this card, one of the few that actually turned out almost exactly as I pictured.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Cricut Cardz Challenge #43

This is my first time to participate in the Cricut Cardz challenge. This week's challenge was to create a new baby card using any cartridge and the colors green, orange, yellow and white only. This was a lot harder than I thought it would be but this is what I came up with.
The background paper was my jumping off point and I found it in a stack that I had forgotten about. The bunny cut is from Celebrate with Flourish. The tag was made with a beaded oval Nestability. The top border was made with the SU eyelet border punch and the ribbon is from JoAnn's. Those hearts aren't as crooked as they look in the picture!
Thanks for stopping by!

My Pink Stamper 5 Million Hits Challenge #1

My Pink Stamper has reached 5 million hits (I can't even imagine) and to celebrate she is doing challenges and give aways on her blog today. http://www.mypinkstamper.com/
The first challenge was to make something with a bird on it. Right up my alley, since my new favorite cart is 3 Birds on Parade!
The image was cut at 3 3/4. The sentiment is from MPS Spooky Puns set. The witch hat is from Studio G and heat embossed with Clear tops Black Gems embossing powder. The top paper is from the DCWV Midnight Spell Solid Stack and finished with an MS Drippy Goo punch. The black ribbon is from WM.

Baby Girl Shape Book

I made this as a shower gift for one of my daughter's friends. I really like making these, have another in the works for a boy. I used Sweet Treats for the flower, Cherry Limade for the font and Live Simply for the butterfly. Most of the inside images are from Sugar and Spice. The paper is from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack. Unfortunately the pictures are not great, I had already wrapped it before I remembered to take them.


I used Fun Flock on the bunny and lamb and the little rhinestones are from Imaginesce.

The frames on these pages are from Live Simply. Sweet Dreams is from Create a Critter. Stickles and more bling used here too.
This frame is from Toy Story.
Last page and probably my favorite. All images here are from Old West. Added some Stickles and some little pearls to make sure it was girly enough!
I know this is a long post. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Fall!
Maria
