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.

#236 Crafty Sprouts New Release Blog Hop! Grumpy Card and Baby Boy Card

****Big Announcement HERE**** Guess what everyone I found out I'm having a baby GIRL and I am soooooo excited I can't stop smiling and I feel like the first time I ever went to Disneyland when I was a kid LOL! Yesterday was one of my most happiest days in my life you have no idea! I feel so blessed that God has blessed me with a little boy and now a baby GIRL!!! Our family is complete!! I can't wait until she comes in April!

Ok now onto the hop, I just had to keep my lovely followers up to date on my pregnancy status LOL!

Hi everyone!! Good morning and welcome to the much anticipated Crafty Sprouts Stamps New Release blog hop, hosted by Erika AKA Crafty Sprouts! If you are here from Kristi's Blog then you are in the right spot! Erika has come up with some FABULOUS new awesome stamps the our DT is going nuts over LOL!! Believe me you will not be dissapointed you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Them all!!

The first set that we will be previewing is called "SMILE ON" it's a stamp set with some very smiley and happy thoughts!

When I first saw this sentiment "A Smile A Day Keeps The Grumpies away" I automatically thought of Grumpy from Snow White.... isn't he so cute!?! I've always liked Grumpy and thought he was so serious and so funny haha! I wanted to make this card unisex in case any of my friends are going through a tough time, or in case my hubby is being a little grumpy himself haha!

I stamped the background stamp with Market Street "grid" stamp, and added a border with my Fiskars punch and some yellow buttons, I really wanted this card to be bright and cheery! I also added pop dots underneath Grumpy. I used the Happily Ever After Cricut cartridge for the die cut.

A close up of this awesome stamp and the entire "Smile On" stamp set. You can Pre-Order it HERE!!!

Now for my 2nd sneak peek "ROCK THAT BABY BUMP" I made this card for one of my oldest friends Regina, I've known her since 2003 and both of our hubby's used to work together in the Marine Corps. and we made a pregnancy pact last year LOL (so true!) well, guess what.... we are both pregnant at the same time Omg!!! She is due 3 weeks before me and she is having a little boy!

For this card I used 2 layers of Kraft paper and embossed one with the large dots embossing folder with my Cuttlebug and did some inking with Antique Linen Distress ink. I got the booties from my New Arrival Cricut Cartridge and added some brown ribbon bows and blue buttons. The eyelet lace I used here I got at Wamart for like $1 and it's actually white! I sprayed the lace with blue Glimmer Mist, the color is "Cornflower" and it's one of the "Chalkboard" Glimmer Mist inks. I LOVE the way the ribbon came out, because it looks like jeans, and plus now I can make and lace into ANY color yay!!!

I love this Bootie Call sentiment haha!! Hey that's how we get babies in the first place from "Bootie Calls" from our hubby's or boyfriends LOL!!!!!!! My friend will get a kick out of this one! Here is the close up of the "ROCK THAT BABY BUMP" below, and you can Pre-Order it HERE

A special thanks to Erika, you are so amazing and talented and I am so happy to be on a DT with such talented sweet DT sisters! Love you guys! 

I hope you all have enjoyed my baby stories and a little history LOL! And of course the New Releases!! be sure to stop by tomorrow for the other 2 releases by CRAFTY SPROUTS STAMPS!!
