It has been a long time…but I am back with a new cutter!!!!!!

Hello Everyone! I know that it has been a long time since I have posted especially anything about papercrafting but I have settled in down here in Florida and am ready to start crafting again. I will be changing the name of my blog soon because I well, no longer own a cricut. I thought about this decision for a long time and came to the conclusion that I just felt limited with the cricut and I wanted full design capability. So I actually turned back to the company that I started with as far as having a larger cutting machine. I went with the KNK Zing! So far I love this machine. I used to own the KNK Element and I loved it but I was using it for a business that eventually burned me out when it came to designing anything. That is when I decided to invest in the cricut machine. Now that I’ve had a break  I realized how much I enjoyed having the ability to design if I want to.  Here are a few things that I have done so far with the machine:This was a fun little treat box that I created i…

Fun with Puns!!!!

Good Monday Morning all!  First and foremost I must tell you that as of right now my comments are still not working. I am in the process of downloading Google Chrome and I really hope that fixes the problems. When I come onto a blog even my own I only have a few seconds to look at the comments and then my screen goes white. I am hoping to have it fixed with in the next few hours I will let you know. You have all been doing such awesome work and I have not been able to comment on it. Or even get to read my own comments that you all have left.  UGH!!!!As you know by now Monday means many things, school, work, responsibility and once again a FCCB Challenge!!! This weeks challenge is one that I find rather enjoyable. They are all enjoyable but this one fits my style. This weeks challenge is called Fun with Puns. Create a card or project using a funny pun somewhere on the project. There are so many great punny titles out there that it was very hard to figure out what I wanted to do. Well I…

FCCB Challenge Me Monday!!!

Good Monday Morning Everyone.......Did you all enjoy the Superbowl last night? I must admit that we do not really keep up with football but I grew up a Giants fan and whenever they are in it I watch. So it was pretty neat that the last Superbowl I watched was the one 4 yrs ago where they played and beat the Patriots and then being able to watch last night a repeat was awesome!! (Sorry for the Patriots fans)

Now onto today's challenge over at FCCB. Love is in the air..everytime I turn around..LOL!!! Well today's challenge is exactly that, Love is in the air challenge. The challenge is to make a project with a heart on it and this weeks sponsor is ......


K ANDREWS STAMPS!!!! I am still new to stamps and I was super excited to use these stamps. I was lucky enough to use the Key to my heart mini stamp set that right now you can get for free when you purchase $25.00 or more worth of products. That is a great deal.


Here is what I made for the Challenge:



This is just a cute little heart…
Sorry this took me so long to post, I have had alot going on this morning and will probably be leaving for upstate NY really soon!!
This week for Challenge Me Monday on FCCB is to make a 3x3 Valentine's day card. Here is the Card that I made:


I simply cut a piece of cardstock to 3x3 then embossed it with the cuttlebug added some bling!! I also cut a scalloped circle out of vellum inked it in silver ink and then embossed it with the hearts cuttlebug folder. I really liked the outcome of that circle. I used the Be Mine sentiment from Simply charmed and then finally added the flower and pink ribbon.
This was a very simple card but none the less very fun and I think it came out cute.!!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to make your own 3x3 Valentines card for the Challenge over at FCCB!

God Bless

Snow Fun!!! Challenge Me Monday!!!

Hi everyone! I know that it has been a long time since I have been on my blog and I wish that I could say that it wont happen again but I cant. I am so busy with homeschooling my kids and trying to get in shape and keeping the house organized that blogging has been set on the back burner. I will try to get on here when I can and of course I will be on when there are Challenges for FCCB.... that leads me to today.

Today is Monday and that means it is time for another Challenge over at FCCB. Today the challenge is Snow fun and that is a perfect theme for this part of the year and it is a really fun theme too. So many ideas came to my mind when preparing for this challenge.

I was so blessed to be able to use EAD designs on my project this week they have the cutest stickers and rub ons and I found the perfect way to use them on my project.

Here is my project ( sorry I am still not good at taking pics)
This was a fun layout and I am actually thinking about creating another one and making a dou…
