Hi everyone this is actually my 2nd post tonight please scroll down to see my other layout I made!
I made this Easter layout of my son when he was only 2 yrs old back in 2010. He just kept grabbing eggs and then he would dump them all out and the older kids would come running trying to steal his eggs... how mean!!! Anyways I made this layout without using my Cricut or Cameo... I made it just using the stuff I had like ribbon, flowers, brads, chipboard letters, sticker, stamps, glitter and buttons. The stamp shaped die cuts I used for the banner are actually a cuttlebug die!
I am entering my layout in 2 challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas- Bows, buttons or bling (I used buttons, bling and my die cut is a Cuttlebug die!)
DCWV- Stackaholic Template Challenge (I used Nana's Kitchen Stack)
Hi everyone! I feel like I have been neglecting my blog a little bit, I have so many new projects to share with you that I made over the last 2 weeks, but I've been too lazy to blog about them!
Here's a layout I made of my nephew Jacob's 2nd birthday. I got this fun and bright paper stack at Joann's a few days ago I forget what the collection is called but it's all about birthday's and it's adorable. All of the cuts here which include, title, stars, circles, tags, balloon and present are all from the Silhouette store. I did some doodling around with a black pen and embossed 2 tags, the sentiment "memories" is from Pink By Design stamps. I also added some glitter to some of the cuts.
I am entering in Creative Scrappers SKETCH #192
Also, just a reminder if you own a Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette SD be sure to enter in our first ever "Cameo Creations" challenge HERE for a chance to win some SCRAPPY MOMS STAMPS!!!!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend, I did I got lots of crafty things done I have plenty of inspiration for you guys!! For today's post I am also being featured on the CRafty Sprouts Blog my sister Victoria helped me make 30 baby shower invitations for my upcoming baby shower. I finally chose a theme for the nursery and it's Princess theme so I decided to go with a Princess themed baby shower also!
I cut all of the onesie's out using the Life's A Party Cricut cart and welded them together in my Gypsy to make a shaped card. The Princess crown is from the Teresa Collins Sophisticated Cricut cartridge and I added pink Stickles on all of the crowns. I am very happy with the way they came out because they were nice and easy to mass produce 30 of them! I stamped ALL of the sentiments using CRAFTY SPROUTS "Rock that baby Bump" stamp set which you can see below. Click HERE to check out the rest of Crafty Sprouts stamp collection they are so awesome!

Hi everyone I hope you are having a great Saturday so far! Here's how I spent my Friday night last night I made a scrapbook layout of my gorgeous hubby and my beautiful son. For those of you who don't know my hubby is currently on deployment right now until 2 weeks before I give birth in April! We miss him dearly, he is in a safe place actually here in the states, but still he is away from us and not at home it sucks!!!!
For my new year's resolution this year I promised myself to make more layouts and use up some of my crafty supplies and enter in more challenges, who knows hopefully I can win a prize (keeping my fingers crossed lol!).
This page was made to add to my 2010 album here's a pic I took of my son and my hubby playing a PS3 game, scrapbooking is my addiction and gaming is my hubby's addiction lol! All of the patterned papers I used are from the Generation Tech stack from DCWV along with the embellishment at the bottom. The font is from the Feeling Groovy Cricut LITE cart, controller is from the Father's Day Cricut cart, and the marquee shape is from Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge. Below you can see I added black buttons and some blue metallic clearance Christmas ribbon that I got over a year ago! I love it when I can use Christmas supplies for non-Christmas projects!

***This is my 2nd post please click HERE to view my first project of the year!***
I am still loving my Cameo, especially after this amazing cut it's so intricate! Normally I would NEVER even attempt to cut something out like this with my beloved Cricut because I know that I would have to do major surgery with my Xacto knife LOL!
I got this shape from the Silhouette online store with my Premium subscription, I am very excited to make a bunch of Valentine's Day projects I guess I got a little burnt out making Christmas stuff, eventhough I LOVE Christmas! I cut this card out at 5x5 inches and stamped the sentiment "Happy Valentine's Day" with a Martha Stewart stamp. I just love sweet and simple cards that are easy to make!
This card is now for sale for $2.50 with FREE SHIPPING at my ETSY shop HERE!!!
Happy New Year everyone! Here's some 2012 green glitter glasses I made for my son he loved them! I used the NEW YEAR PARTY COLLECTION from SVG ATTIC, this set is awesome because it has a lot of different party favors that can be used year round, not just for New Year's. I cut the glasses using my new Cameo and with SCAL 3 easy peasy! I placed clear transparency papers on the circles to create a lens. You can view the entire collection HERE
