Fun Layout and a Birthday Shout out!!!

Good Morning bloggers!!!!

It is really starting to feel like fall out there!! This morning it was 59 degrees! I am actually looking forward to seeing the colors of the leaves this yr. I am a summer baby so I can get pretty sad when it is over.

Ok, so here is a layout that I made last week. This is the first layout that I have made using CTMH stamps. These stamps were loaned to me so I am not exactly sure about the name but I think it was called Cherish flourishes. Here is a lookie:

Sorry that I cut the bottom off but there really isn’t much more just the last part of that punch border!! I will do better next time! LOL!!!

I have not done the journaling yet.

I cut the orange flower with my cricut using the Walk in my Garden Cartridge. I cut two of the daisy flowers they only have 6 petals. I wanted a fuller flower so when I cut two I placed them in between each petal and that gave the look of a fuller flower. Then I glimmer misted them and after they dried I took my pencil and rolled the petals just to give them more pop!! Finally I hot glued a button to the center.

I also added two Prima flowers that I also glimmer misted and then added adhesive pearls to the center.

Then you can see the stamp flourish that I added from CTMH. I really like how they came out!

Just showing you all some svgs I have created!!

Hello again I was going through some of my files that I had designed awhile back and I am actually contemplating the idea of starting to design again. It has been awhile but I do enjoy doing it. Of course I have the cricut so I cannot use these files. :-( !!! So basically I guess I am wondering if you all think that I should start selling files again? I uses to sell my files with another website that was awesome!!! But my life took an unexpected turn and I pulled out of the site. Plus with that I sold my old machine and bought the cricut. Anyway here are a few of my older files I would love some feedback from you all!!! Thanks

Here is a great beach title for a layout!!!

Here are a few Halloween ones:
And then here are a few random ones:
Remember comments are encouraged!!!!

Some ebay ventings, and concert pics!!!!




Well, I have learned a very valuable lesson in the last 2 weeks. Let me tell you the story. I have been really wanting to get the E2 so I started looking on ebay for one and low and behold there was plenty of them on there and many of them were selling for right around $200.00. Most of them were being sold by proudparents who I am suspecting to believe is actually provocraft. I have bought from them before and gotten Cartridges at killer deals. So anyway I started bidding on a machine and thought at first I was bidding on one from Proudparents and then quickly realized I was bidding on one from someone else. I got a little nervous and quickly looked up their feedback. Well they had great feedback and even had a very satisfied customer who had just received her E2 and only paid $220.00. So I felt alittle bit better and waited to see if I was going to win. Well guess what I did win!!!!! For right around $200 I was so excited!!!!!!!!! Then last week I get an email from ebay saying that they have removed the listing and that I need to open a case and get the money back!!!
My lesson was to pay better attention and not flip back and forth through so many sellers at a time. I am really bummed and am now looking for an E2 that is priced around that range!! I know that that is a long shot!! But I am hoping that I can find one.
Enough of my venting now onto the sweet stuff that makes me smile!!!
Recently in our town the christian artist Britt Nicole came and did a concert. Well she was great and has such a wonderful spirit about her!! She was very sweet when my daughter met her and she even prayed with Malia before we left. It was awesome!! Before Britt Nicole came on stage there was the local Christian bands that played some songs of their own. Well one of them happens to have our old worship leader as the lead singer and my kids just love their music so I took some shots of them worshipping to the Lord during the concert and it was so cute!!! My little man just cracks me up!!!
Seeing my daughter worship just brings tears to my eyes. She truly loves the Lord and
he is using her in a powerful way. She is going to go forth and do more for the kingdom than I ever dreamed of doing.
Well thanks for listening. I promise I will be posting another project pretty soon. After I thought I won that machine I sold my old one so no matter what I have to buy a new machine this coming week . Whether it is an expression or an E2 I need a machine. I will have the new Cricut Art Philosophy cart next week!!!!! So I will be posting about it for awhile!!!! Have a blessed day!!!

Made a cute project for my CMTH party!!!!

Hi Everyone, so how many of you have heard the buzz about the new CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge? I know that I have and I really want one so….. Tomorrow night I am having a CTMH party. This will be my first one that I have hosted and even went to. I have known about CTMH for awhile just never got around to being at one of the parties. Well when I got a look at that cartridge I said that is it I gotta have me one of these!! LOL!

So for the Party I wanted to show some CTMH stuff but I wanted to have a party for Cricut also because I know several woman that have not even heard about the Cricut, ( I know crazy right! lol! ) or that have one but really haven’t done anything with it. So at the party the consultant will do the CTMH stuff and I will be doing some Cricut stuff. Here is one of the projects that I did for the Party.

Now Granted, I only used the cricut for the little sign or label on the top of the drawer but never the less I used it. This was a great tutorial that I got over at Splitcoaststampers website. Just go under their resource area and look for the drawer box.

It was super easy and fun. I will be posting another project tomorrow. It is my first wall hanging that I have made using the cricut and mod podge!! It was fun and I am pleased with how it came out.

So my E2 should be here by the end of this week I hope!!!! Cannot wait to play with it!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!

I am officially back with a cool Diaper Cake!!!

Happy return to reality day!!!! So my kids are officially back into the swing of things!!! Like homeschool and chores and getting up at 7:30 am and starting the day!! I personally think I am having more trouble than they are! LOL!!! I am bound and determined to start working out again this week. I will let you know how that goes!!
I know that I have been absent this summer but I did want to share with you all this really cool project that I was asked to do this summer for one of the ladies at church that were having a baby!!! Check it out.....


This has had to have been the coolest thing I have ever created!!! I cannot even believe that I made this!!! It was so much fun and I must say that I really learned about how the smallest little detail can really make a difference!!! Let me show you what I mean....

This is the cute little Monkey family that I put on the top of the cake theme for the shower was jungle animals especially monkeys so I thought this family was perfect for it. I used the Create-a-Critter cricut cartridge which I happen to think is one of the best ones out there. If you are new to the cricut and do not own this cart I encourage you to get it!! I actually won mine off of ebay for only $18.00 dollars!!! It was brand new of course it was also 3 O' clock in the morning but I was desperate. LOl!
Anyway I used the Michaels flocking powder for my monkeys so they were all fuzzy. It made them somewhat more realistic and then I wanted there to be a distinction between the mommy and daddy monkey so I had to add some bling to momma....
Don't you just love those earrings. And check out the rock on her finger!! LOL!! These were just little rhinestones that I bought from Micheals.
This project was so much fun. Here are some more photos of the details. Check out the Lions mane it is glitterfied!!!There was more but I couldn't blog forever. I hope you like it as much as I did. If you want more info on it just message me and I can give you the info!!
