Sweet Treats cupcake cards

The cupcakes on this cartridge are so cute!  They make the perfect accent on birthday cards!  I used a 5x7 card and cut the cupcakes and the tag at 1.5". I cut all the layers too and used pop dots for some dimension. The stamp on the tag is a "My Pink Stamper" stamp from her Simply Sweet Occasions set!  Love it! Of course, I stickled it up because cupcakes have to be decorated!  Thanks for looking!

My First Project for Weddings with the Cricut

This project was posted on Decor Tuesday, Feb. 9th.  I thought this would be great to frame in a 12x12 scrapbook page frame with a family wedding picture. It could also be a layout in a scrapbook.  The background is just a 12x12 piece of Bazzill cardstock. I used Lyrical Letters for the overlay. I fit it to the page using my Gypsy but you could just use the fit-to-page button on your Cricut if you wanted to.  The word "FAMILY" was from Winter Woodland and was cut at 2.5". Very easy to make but also very elegant. I inked the edges of the overlay for some added color.  I will have another layout posted on Weddings with the Cricut on layout Wednesday.  Be sure to check it out as well as all of the other awesome projects that are posted there daily!  Lots of inspiration for DIY weddings!  Thanks for looking!

Valentine's day cards

Here are a few cards that I have made for family members for Valentine's Day!  I love using my new 5x7 candy hearts cuttlebug embossing folder! It is so cute!  The tags on some of the cards are made with a Stampin up punch. I used various stamps from my stash!  :-)

A Waterfall Mini Album

This is my first try at a waterfall mini album!  It wasn't as hard as I thought - just gotta get all the measurements right!  :-)  I made this for my son and new daughter-in-law to have a special little place for a condensed version of their love story!  If anyone wants specifics on directions etc., just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!  Thanks for looking!
