Totally Tags 'N ATC's at My Papercrafting World

Today is another fun tag and ATC challenge day over at MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD! This week we are challenged to use Purple - (like that is a real challenge??) :-)  I used the Picturesque Cricut cartridge to create my tag this week:





This is the butterfly tag cut at 3.24". The very bottom layer is cut using the Hide/contour feature on my Gypsy so it will be a solid layer.  The largest butterfly was a separate cut and I sized it at 2.06" and it fits perfectly even though it is not "technically" a layer on this tag. Pretty cool, huh? :-)

This is how all the layers look before assembly.


Some close-ups. I simply added the cut-outs over the top of where they were cut out! I just put adhesive down the middle of each butterfly so I could bend the wings up for added dimension! I just love how it turned out! Hope you all do too!  Make sure to stop over at MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD to check out all the other beautiful purple tags and to play along by making your own tag! HAPPY SPRING!

My Papercrafting World Challenge #126 Spring

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge Wednesday here and over at My Papercrafting World! This week we are welcoming SPRING! Yay!! I chose to make a little purse entirely from the Spring Chic Cricut Imagine cartridge. This project was so easy because all I had to do was put white paper on the mat and print and cut my project!

Here is how it looked after I printed and cut it:

A few more close-ups:


I added some turquoise Liquid Pearls to make the straps pop!

Easter Cards

Welcome to my corner of the crafting world! Today I am a guest designer over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY and CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART! It's always so much fun to share with lots of fellow crafters! Since Easter is quickly approaching,  I decided it was the perfect time to make some cards.  The Cricut cartridges I used: Close to My Heart Artiste and Easter Blessings (the CCR digital cartridge).  The cards are from Artiste and the images and phrases are from Easter Blessings.


I love how the front of the card tucks in the slot.



Love this phrase and shadow!


This tag and pocket could be used for so many occasions!

All put together.


A close-up of the detail.

I'm showing this pic to show the shape of the card. I think this card is my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Totally Tags 'N ATC's

Hello everyone and welcome to today's Totally Tags and ATC's challenge over at MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD! Today's challenge is TEXTURE and it was so much fun! Here is my completed tag and then I'll share details:

I used the Cricut cartridge, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the base tag. 

I cut a piece of these Kraft flute tiles for a layer on the tag because I thought this would be a great way to add some awesome texture! I also used a Unity Itty Bitty stamp "Note to Self". 

Lace ribbon, twine and some gel pen stitching finish the look.

The paper flower is from Prima - Candy Doodles. I embellished it with some Diamond Stickles and Buttercup Liquid Pearls. I stamped the "Note to Self" Itty Bitty from Unity Stamps with a stamp from the "Enjoying the Moments" stamp set from Tanner Bell Designs that are inspired by Megan Elizabeth. I LOVE her stuff!! :-) 

Thanks for stopping by today and remember to head over to MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD to link up a textured tag of your own! Remember to "Enjoy the Moments"!

Totally Tags 'N ATC's

Hello and welcome to today's Tags and ATC's challenge over at CRAFTING WITH CUTTERS. Our theme this week is STITCHING.  I chose to cut out some mini tags from the Cricut cartridge, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, stamped a few random sentiments on and used some stitching rub-ons. These rub-ons are great because they give the stitched look without actually stitching!


My post today is short and sweet! :-)  Make sure you head over to CRAFTING WITH CUTTERS so you can link up your own tag using stitching to play along!

Thanks for stopping by today!
