Sniff sniff : (

My Cricut is no more.  It decided to freeze up when I was updating it so I could use my Gypsy.  Now it has gone to little Cricut heaven (or it might just be on life support since it still has a green light that comes on).  It will be going back to Provocraft once I get the new one.  Meanwhile I will have to make the best use of my dies and stamps.  Hopefully I will have some beautiful new creations to share with you in the upcoming days. 

Looking forward to positing something soon.

Birthday Card using Sizzix and Cricut

A co-worker had me to make this for a special young lady.  The balloons and Happy Birthday came from a long Sizzix die.  The Flower background came from a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The cake was a red Sizzix die.  The border was from Fiskars, treading water I think.  The florish behind the cake and under the girl on the inside are from Cricut Storybook as well as the 18th and the Adriana.  I love the girl on the inside and Sizzix did a good job of making her easy to paper piece.

Thank You and Get Well Cards

This was with Spellbinders and Fiskars and Martha Stewart Border Punches with an Our Daily Bread stamped image.  The name is from Cricut - Lyrical Letters.

The greeting is from Cricut - Opposites Attract and the label is from Spellbinders.  The inside of the card below is a border punch from Martha Stewart.

The first card is Cricut - Simply Sweet and Cricut - Lyrical Letters for the name.  The second card is a thank you card with the new Cricut Cartridge - From My Kitchen with Labels from Spellbinders and the Thank You greeting from Cricut Cartridge - Lyrical Letters.

The name here is from Cricut Cartridge - Storybook.  And the greeting is from Our Daily Bread's September 2009 friendship release.

I thank all of you who have joined from the bottom of my heart.

Here are a few more projects.  I'm going to put up scrapbook pages as well.  I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

This was with Storybook and the Martha Stewart punch around the bottom.

I got the butterfly from Storybook and I think the Happy Birthday is from A Child's Year.

The heart is from Storybook, the label is too.  The stamp is from Verve Stamps.

More Inspirational Cards

The mats that I cut on this card are from Cricut Storybook.  The background paper is from the DCWV Sweet pack and I put pearls to make is look pretty.

Here is one of my favorite inspirational cards.  There is no Cricut involved but I used Verve stamps and a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the tan cardstock mat. Verve stamps are one of my favorites because the fonts are so pretty and they make really good impressions.

Something different

I tried something a little different here and made a bouquet of diecuts for the shower of a coworker's wife.  I liked making it but want to develop more in making details on the die cuts.  I really liked working with the New Arrival cartridge.

Here is another view of it.
