Big Project -Revealed!

Hi Everyone! =)

I had an idea to try making a banner for the up coming holiday on Thursday of last week. I put all sorts on thought into it and even tried drawing it out a bit to see how I wanted it to look.
I've never made anything like this before so I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out.. 

I cut everything with my CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, using summer red and blue and White Daisy card stock. I also used some SuperHero B&T paper, I just love that paper, blue with stars on one side and the strips on the other, perfect fit.=)
I cut my banner pieces at 6", lettering at 2 1/4" and my stars at 3". 

I used ink and daubers, mini crystals, stamps from several sets (Sorry, I didn't think to jot down the names of the stamps, if you would like that please let me know =) I used Cornflower blue, Holiday Red and White Daisy ink pads. I also embossed several things to make them pop (the #4 Banner is embossed with the Eagle and phrase "Brave and True" I added the stars to it)! You KNOW how I like to POP! =)
To connect them I simply used yarn and knotted each piece together.

I think it turned out great! WAY better then the one in my head! 
Which one(s) do YOU like best?! My Fav's are the one with the letter J and #4 on them! =)

I hope you like it and Thanks for checkin' me out! =)

Big Project...

Hi Everyone!

I have been working on a new project for a little bit and thought I would share a bit of a teaser. =)

It is the FIRST time I've made anything like this and I am SOO excited to see how it turns out! 

WHAT do you think I could be making to include the neat little stars above?!

I will be sure to post as soon as I'm finished, I need it by Saturday so you KNOW it'll be done before that! 
Knowing me as well as I do.. I have to admit that it probably Could be done very soon, but I'll have to nit pick it to death before I am happy. lol

Thanks for checking me out and check back soon for the finished project!

Happy Scrappin! =)

Dad's Day Card!

Of course, there were 2 Big events this past weekend!
Father's Day!

I seen a few Very cute "tool belt" cards and I wanted to do something similar. Of course I had lent out my "Boys will be Boys" cartridge, so I didn't have my super cute hammer and screw driver but I made do, they don't look great, but I think they are pretty good, since I am no where NEAR as talented at cutting as my Cricut is! lol

I used Craft paper for the card and the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I used Grey Dotty for You paper from last month to make my sentiment pop (and I got that sentiment from my "Cricut Calender") and I inked the edges to make it look a little more real..

You don't know this but my parents recently built a deck and my mom is recovering from a nasty fall, so on the inside of the card I went for a bit of funny and said that if only he would quit throwing mom off the deck MAYbe he could Enjoy it! 

Thank you for checkin' me out! =)

Happy Scrappin! =)

Con-GRAD-ulations Card!

Hi All! =)
It seems like it took forever for me to buy some time to get somethings done at my Scrap Table!
I had an Open House this weekend for my niece. We are all SO proud of her and all of her hard work!
I wanted to do something kind of fanciful but that also gave off serious and sophisticated. You know.. ALLA that wrapped into one very cute little package...Envelope..you get it.. =)

I decided with doing the sentiment and the bird that I wouldn't need to use a pattern paper. I opted to use the pink from the Summer packet but decided that I needed the black so the sentiment would jump off the card, I then used plum purple paper for the pretty swirly. I cut everything on my Cricut Expressions, I got the Card from Close to my Heart- Art Philosophy cartridge and the phrase from 3 Birds-Straight from the Nest cartridge. I used the same bird stamp that I used last month but in a totally different context, I think it works both ways, in sympathy and in well wishing. I used some mini gems in the corners and also behind the bird which is embossed in Silver.
I think this turned out great! Not what I had in mind but I like where it ended up!!

I hope you like my card! As always Thank you for stopping by,
