365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#28 Scrappy Moms Stamps Sneak Peek 1

Hi everyone! Here is my 1st Scrappy Mom Stamps sneak peek. I made a very simple card that I wanted to focus on the embossing something you don't know about me is I am a Cuttlebug folder hoarder LOL! I just figured that out right now because as I was digging through my embossing folders I realized I had 2 sets of duplicates OMG now that's pretty bad haha!


I used the new Fun Celebrations stamp set for the sentiment and I got the 4 leaf clover from KaDoodle Bug Designs "It's Your Lucky Day" cutting pattern, I cut the clover out twice and curled up the edges for dimension and added a green button. The border bunch I used is from Fiskars.

#23 Project Life Week 3

Warning picture heavy LOL!

Here's both of my pages side by side I spent a lot of time creating these 2 pages that's why I posted so many pics LOL! This week was jammed packed with stuff we were busy. 

I just had to take a pic of the trash truck because I was thinking of how much they've changed since I was a kid they were brown. Gas is super expensive again and has actually risen .30 cents since I took this picture! I started doing Weight Watcher's this week and going to the gym 6 days a week. I cut up the Smart One's box which had some weight loss tips. My baby girl loves her bananas and we went to an arcade that's why there's a ticket stub stapled to the pic. I got some free printable's from the Becky Higgins site along with Ali Edwards free handwriting font picture below.

I watched the Inauguration of President Obama Parade Live on Tv and took some pics of my Tv! It was pretty cool seeing history like that I never even knew there were presidential parades (I'm not a political person at all). I thought the Valentine's Day display was super cute because of Mickey and I also bought my kids this Elmo play kitchen and had to assemble it myself since my hubby is deployed.

Here I did a flip up page and placed the instructions to the play kitchen with a paper clip. I added wood chips and stamped the sentiments, arrows  and added several washi tapes.

 I used a few different stickers here and also placed my son's Martin Luther King Jr. book from Kindergarten in here and stamped the date on it and added washi to the side.

I used several Close To My Heart stamp sets to create these pages:

#C1537 Honeycomb Stamp Set
#B1416 Keyboard Uppercase Alphabet Stamp set
#D1531 Cricut Artiste Word Balloons Stamp Set Cricut Companion Stamp
#CC1020 It's Your Day Stamp Set- Retired
#S1211 Capture The Date Stamp Set- Retired

I made an Anniversary card to send to my hubby in Afganistan unfortunately he is going to miss our 9 year anniversary this month Feb. 28th :(  Even though we can't be together this year to celebrate our anniversary I thought I'd send him this card with a few wedding pics of us to remember our special day.

I embossed the background and wedding dress using my Cuttlebug, added sheer black ribbon down the middle. I added Stickles to the champagne glasses and tiara,  I also added white tulle as a veil.

Hi everyone! Here's a sweet little Springy card I made with the new Peachy Keen Stamp set called PK-172 Spring Gear Flowers this stamp set will be released tomorrow along with the others from the Feb. 2013 release I also used 2 cute faces from the February 2013 Stamp of The month to create my card.

#18-19 Peachy Keen Stamps February Stamp Preview

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you a couple projects I made from the February 2013 Stamp Of The Month Kit from Peachy Keen Stamps! They are so "Out of This World!!!" Perfect for your Robotz Cricut carts just sayin' lol! I love them and my son LOVE's them!!!

The first project I made was a gear shaped pocket card using my CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the card shape, gear, and also tag and embossed the background with my Cuttlebug. I stamped the cute robot and all of the sentiments using the new SOTM called PKSC-14 February 2013 this stamp kit will be available starting on Tuesday Feb. 5th HERE! You can either pay monthly (that's the best deal!) or you can just buy it anytime! Also, PKS will be having a week long sale so be sure to check that out!!

For the inside tag I stamped the gears background using one of the new stamps also being released Feb. 5th called PK-169 Geared Up Background size A2. I inked the edges using CTMH Honey Stamp Pad

For my bonus project I made a magnetic list to hang on my fridge. It seems like we are constantly finding new things around the house that need battery changing and I though we could just write them down as we find them because most of the time I buy batteries I forget what needed new batteries in the first place LOL! I found the free list printable online and all of the stamps including the sentiment are also from the Stamp of the Month that I used for my card above. 

Don't forget to check out the other designers amazing sneak peeks so you can see how versatile this stamp set is HERE.

 Hope we'll be seeing you on The Peachy Keen Connection Tuesday at 6 p.m. (CST) for all the fun we'll be having challenges and prizes yes Peachy Keen Stamps prizes and also live chatting with the DT!
