Super Simple Card

The challenge for this card was to use an older patterned paper and only two elements. (that's right only 2!) I had some older KI paper and a matching chipboard frame that I used. The dymo label maker became my second element when I used it for my sentiment. Super super simple card.

Stamped Love Card

I've got a few cards to share that I made over the weekend for a Cyber Crop over at CX. This card turned out to be my favorite one. I'll share the others over the next few days.

Kiss Me (Lips)

I used two different cutting files to create this fun valentine's card...a border and the lips both came from the files. I use the PDF versions of the files and I love them. They really get me thinking outside my box. Check out the new website for The Cutting Cafe.

Life is Just Better With Cupcakes

I absolutely loved working with this cutting file from The Cutting Cafe! Since cupcakes are one of my favorite things, it made working with the file even more fun! The file is just loaded with adorable cupcake stamps and sayings. You may view this file and others at The Cutting Cafe.

One last finished challenge

This challenge was to only use your cricut for embellishments. I used the Indy Art cartridge...if Cricut would just come up with a way to make ribbon and rhinestones, I'd be all set!

Another finished PJ Crop Challenge

I love doing challenges. They get me thinking out of my box. I'd had this photo of my readers printed for quite a while and hadn't gotten around to doing anything with it. This was for a sketch challenge.

Challenge Completed for PJ Cropping Party

On New Year's day, Team LB hosted a PJ crop at CX. One of the challenges was to create something without using any kind of electronic cutting device and use your own handwriting. I came up with this quick card. My friend and I had been experimenting with bleaching techniques and I had this stamped image that needed use...seemed like the perfect time.

Last Day of Vacation

I've been off for 2 whole weeks and today's the last day. It's probably a good thing because I've been so unmotivated this last week. I think I need routine and order. Dear hubby decided that our old wallpaper in the main part of the house needed to come down and he started that mess on New Year's Eve. I have a hard time dealing with disorder. I hope this project gets finished up quickly. I really need to pick some paint colors for the walls, but I just can't seem to make a decision.

ATC Addict!

I'm addicted to making these ATC cards. I love being able to try different techniques and just let my artistic side go free. These are a couple that I made lately for some swaps.

New Year's Card

This is a card I created for The Cutting Cafe'. I love how easy it is to quickly add a sentiment to my cards with the cutting files. I actually use the files in the PDF format and they work out great! More files can be viewed here:

I finally took the plunge and set up my own blog. One step forward into blogdom.
