Baby Tag

I participated in the one hour challenge on the CMB and created this tag, using the TBBM, Animal Kingdom, and Plantin Schoolbook. I also use colored pencils to highlight the wings.

Tags Card

I created this tag with the TBBM cartridge following a video tut from "The Pink Stamper" she has wonderful videos. This was my first try at the welding feature on the Gypsy. I also used my Sizzix Texture Boutique to emboss the flowers, and I use the Cricut to cut the Chick from the "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge and last I used the word stickers from "Cloud 9 Design". Let me know what you think.

Circle Gift Bag

After seeing Angie's video on the circle bag, I just had to make them. I cut the circles and the flowers with the Cricut E, in between the two circles is a small paper bag. Added a paper trim and ribbon to keep the bag closed. I still need a little practice on the paper flowers.

Here is my first try at the flowerpot card. I embossed the blue sections with dots and used MS doily edge punch to give a lace finish. Check out Crystals Crafty Creations for Blog Candy here:

Altered Wooden Purse

My project for the morning is this little wooden purse. I saw this project posted by A Taste of DC on the Cricut MB. After seeing these I had to go searching in Michaels for these little wooden purses. This is a quick and easy project just cover in cardstock and embellish. They make wonderful party favors and can hold quite a bit of things inside. Thanks for stopping by.

Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album

Inspiration for this project was from the Cricut MB. I really didn't have a theme for this album I just started with my odd and end pieces. The tags were cut with Cricut E using the TBBM cartridge, added card stock which was a managers special at ACMoore. Album is embellished with chipboard, trim, stickers, ribbon. I also use my crop-a-dile to add the eyelets. These can also be made from paper towel rolls. This was a fun project to make. Thanks for stopping by.
