Quick Easter Cards

Image
Good morning, I finished up the last of my quick simple Easter Cards last night so now I can finish packing and get ready for the cruise. I used random paper from paper studio. Cuts were from the silhouette and the one cut was from Enjoy the Seasons cricut cartridge using my imagine machine.





The stamps were used from Mr Cricut Crazy ~ Easter Blessings set

Well I got to run to work, today is my last day with this company and I will be a full time stay at home mom/wife yeah me....have a bless day

More Easter Cards

Image
After watching Mary Card Crazy09 video I had to scrap lift this beautiful card. She used the cricut cartridge and I used my Cameo and got the cross from the store $.99 :D. I did everything to this card Mary did to hers and instead of using my Elegant Edges cartridge I just used my Cameo. My Cameo is my go to first machine
My stamps are from Clear Stamps. This card was so easy that I made 10 but right now they are in envelopes and ready to be mailed off tomorrow. Thanks Mary for all your inspiration.
My next cards were also simple I used Mr Cricut Crazy Easter Blessings for this simple card..The inside stamps is from Hobby Lobby
This next card I used Emma's die to cut out the egg and the stamp set is also Mr. Cricut the inside sentiment is from Jaded Blossom

Again the papers are just from my stash

Quick Easter Cards

Image
I only have 10 more and I am done. Since the cruise is only a few days away I have to have all my Easter projects complete an in the mail by Friday. Today I completed these cards. I cut the 3 different bunnies out with my Cameo, I used random 12x12 sheets and cut them down so I can't tell you what I used. I pulled out the spellbinders with white bazzill and just got busy. Since these are for my non scrappy family members I didn't do any layering and the inside is plain with just the stamp.















The last thing that I have done this evening is to get on my sewing/embroidery machine and I made this Easter print so tomorrow I need to wash my tee shirt and do another run at it.

My needle broke during this run and when I replaced it was knocking so it doesn't look as good but I will get better....
Be Bless my friends

Card Patterns

Image
Okay card #2 tonight. I completed this one for the challenge over at Card Patterns. Again I am trying to complete my Easter cards so I took there sketch and worked it to my Easter one. I used Mr Cricut Crazy Easter Blessings stamp set to complete this card. I haven't colored in ages since Elizabeth digi images so I struggled with this but it came out okay I used my copics E13, E15, E17 and R20. I used my stickles  to give it a little glitter. The bling is from Micheal's dollar spot also the ribbon bow. The paper is from My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair and AC Card stock. The inside stamp is also from the Easter Blessings set.

I finally came into my room tonight and I knew I needed to complete some Easter cards so I went to a few sites and got busy. I pulled out My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair paper pack and followed along with the sketch and this is what I came up with. I used the Easter stamp from Hobby Lobby clearance last yr and I used my glitter pens to color the chicks. I used Martha Stewart punch  and some spare parts brads from HL and the bling is recollections from Micheal's. The inside stamp For Peeks Sakes is from Mr Cricut Crazy stamp set Easter Blessings. .


Cricut Charms

Image
I made these charms to hang off my bag that I made to take on the cricut cruise in a couple of weeks. I used the shrinky dink paper and the Everyday cricut cartridge and my imagine machine. I cut all the images out at 4"


I took a marker and drew the eyes on the gypsy I had used my personal stamp and that charm is my fav



I had a blast doing this project and now everyone will know that I am on the cruise with the cricut people.

Be Bless

3x3 calling cards for the cricut cruise

Image
I finally finished my cards, I completed 60 of them. I started out with my imagine machine using Buccaneer cartridge and the cricut craftroom but for some reason my machine did not want to cut so I had to hand cut all the images out. I used stampin up crushed curry for the base of my cards. I used stamp Hello from  TPC from JoAnn's.




I am sure glad that it is over. Now I have to do a card for the exchange on the cruise and wrap my gift then I can pack for the cruise and enjoy.....

Have a bless day

Garage sale finds

Image
I love this time of year when hubby and I just get in the car and ride around and find some good sales. We really scored this weekend, I forgot to take a picture of the wall unit I found for $.25 I couldn't believe 25 cents was all the lady wanted so it is in my craft room in the Kansas house so I will have to take a pic next time we are up there.


This sewing machine we got for $45 and it runs great and look at all the stitches. I can even embroidery on this one score :D

This piece I got for only $3 and once I clean it up I will put all my Tim inks in it~ can you say score again yeah me :D

Be Bless and remember to always look for those garage sales you never know what treasures you will find.
