Bear Valentine Card

The pink card is A2 sized and the patterned paper is from one of the paper pads from cricut. The bear and the balloon is from Create a Critter. I used twine for the string and glued it onto his hand. He's sooo cute!

Oh yeah, and have a fun new years eve!! Don't party too hard ;)

Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Hey everyone and welcome to CuteCuteWorld and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! I'm so excited to be a part of this!

If you've come from visiting Jill you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

In honor of the approaching Christmas holiday, we're having a "Deck The Halls" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Christmas/Holiday-themed project that could be used to decorate and spruce up their homes for the Holiday Season!

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB! Woohoo!

For my project I made a door hanger. I found an old door hanger that I had laying around and thought it would be a great idea to decorate it. I found some Christmas paper and traced the door hanger out on the back, cut it out and used my tape runner to keep it in place. The santa is from Winter Frolic and he's cut at 3 3/4" and the speach bubble is from Create a Critter. I added some faux stitching with my white gel pen on the santa. I stamped Happy Holidays onto the speech bubble and added a snowflake using my Arctic Snowflake punch by Martha Stewart. I love the way it turned out :)

I'm giving away a Cricut Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge! All you have to do to be entered is:
1. Become a Follower of my blog.

For Someone Special Piggy Card

Heyy! I don't know about you but it's been snowing like crazy here! It's snowed nonstop all day and we're supposed to get over 60cm of it tonight! yikes! It's fun tho.. I throw snowballs at my boyfriend! lol

Here's a card I made today. I was reading Robyn's blog over at the Pink Stamper and she has a birthday challenge going on and I thought I would make this card for it. It's so cute! My camera sucks and we have bad lighting in our apt. so sorry about the darkness :(

I cut the piggy out at 2 3/4" with the Create a Critter cartridge and added a pink bow on her ear. I also faux stitched around her. The card is just the standard A2 out of kraft cardstock. I added a navy blue cardstock and some flower paper I had laying around. For the tag for the sentiment it's also from Create a Critter. I cut two out, one navy blue(1 3/4") and the white (1 1/2") and the "For someone Special" is a rub-on from Cosmo Cricket. (love these rub ons!!!) I love the way it turned out, but I wish my camera and lighting were better. oh well... ill take a better pic during the day. Hope you all like it :)

Fantabulous Challenge #38

Hey everyone! Hope your weekend was good :) This weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Blog is to make a project using ribbon. For the challenge I thought I would make a Christmas card, since that time is coming up.

For the card base I cut at 4" using the Card/tag feature on the Birthday Bash cartridge. The penguin was cut at 2 3/4" using Create a Critter and the tag was from Winter Frolic. I stamped the Happy Holiday's onto the tag and pop dotted it onto the side of the card. I also double pop dotted the penguin. I then added a ribbon with a little bow on the top. I think it turned out so cute :)

Be sure to check out the Fantabulous Cricut Blog for the challenge and have a chance to win some great prizes!

Christmas Tree Card

hey everyone! Hope your weekends going good so far. Mine's been pretty good. I went to Michaels today and it was crazy busy! I bought a couple stamps, a Martha Stewart punch (arctic snowflake) and a bunch of ribbon, because I am obsessed! lol. So here's a card using one of the stamps I bought.

The card is a A2 sized card. I handstamped the tree into the middle of the white cardstock and added some blue and silver rhinestones. I made a bow out of some of the ribbon I bought(love itt!) and hot glued it to the top.

I think this card turned out awesome and it was so easy to make too.. I just might have to make a few to hand out for Christmas :) Please comment and tell me what you think of it! Thanks!

Holly Jolly Santa

Hey everyone, hope your saturdays going well. Mine's going great, spent the whole day shopping and doing things with my mother and my boyfriend. Later tonight we're going to see our friends who just had a baby, she is too cute!

Anyways, here's a card I made earlier today. When I was out I bought some Christmas scrapbook paper (it was 25% off!) by atd at zellers. It has cute snowman images and santa, so I picked a couple different pads up. The card is a standard A2 card and the snowflake paper is from one of those paper pads.

I cut out the snowman using the Winter Frolic cartridge at 3 1/2" and pop dotted him onto the side of the card. The Holly Jolly is chipboard that I got at the dollar store awhile ago. I thought it looked cute on the card instead of using a stamp. It already had a rhinestone on it so I added a couple more randomly onto the card. I think it turned out so cute :) Hope you all enjoy it.

Birthday Bash Card

holla! Happy sunday everyone! How's was everyone's weekend? Mine wass awesome but I'm sad its almost over and back to work tomorrow. :( Here's the other card I promised I would post that I made using the Birthday Bash Cart. The picture is dark again, sorry!

This is a really basic card that is A2 sized. I cut light green cardstock half an inch smaller than the card. The bird and banner was cut at 2 1/2" and pop dotted them up. I also stamped happy birthday onto a piece of yellow cardstock and pop dotted it on the top of the card. Hope you all like it :)

Elephant Smile Circle Card

heyy! I've been so busy this past month, moving and studying for school. Sorry I havent been on here much, I promise I'll try to post more :) I bought the Birthday Bash cartridge awhile ago and it finally came in! I was so excited to get it because it has so many cute images and I will probably find so many things for it. I already made a few cards with it. Here's one of them

The pictures kinda dark sorry. But I cut the circle card out at 3 1/2" using the card/tag feature and I found it on page 43. The scalloped circle is part of the same feature. The elephant is from the phrase feature and i forgot how big i cut him. oops. I used my white gel pen and put little dots around the scalloped circle and also wrote around the word smile.

He came out so cute! and I already put him up in my etsy shop. Be sure to check it out. Anyways its dinner time, so I'll be back on tomorrow. Have fun everyone!

Christmas Tags

hey! I'm at my dad's house this weekend visiting so I won't be able to post much this weekend. Here's my craft of the day. I loved how those birthday tags turned out so I thought I'd make some Christmas tags.

Using the Simply Charmed Cartridge I cut the Santa out at 2 3/4" and the tag is cut from the Don Juan cartridge at 3 1/2". I used my white gel pen to outline the edges and stamped Merry Christmas on the bottom. I pop dotted the santa.

On the back I added a snowflake applique and put some blue rhinestones in the middle. There is enough room on the back to write a to and from when you attach them to presents. To finish it off I added some bakers twine. Hope you all enjoy these tags :)

Birthday Tags

Hey guys! I'm at my boyfriends hockey game and I'm sitting here feeezing!! It got cold out really fast :( While I'm sitting out here I thought I'd share with you these tags I made.

I thought these cute little tags would be perfect to add to presents. The tag is cut from the Don Juan cartridge at 3 1/2". I cut the birthday cakes from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I traced around the edges with my white gel pen and added some matching ribbon. I thought I would make a set of 4 tags. So two of the cakes are pink and the other 2 are blue. On the back I also traced around the edges and I stamped Happy Birthday onto it.

I'm also entering these into the Fantabulous Challange which was to make something that had to do with baking.

**I added these to my shop. If your interested in buying anything just mention my blog in the notes to seller and you'll receive 10% off! Woohoo

Another Christmas Card

Hey everyone! I just want to start off saying that I've been featured in a blog! You can check it out here:

I made yet another Christmas card. For some reason I'm really excited about Christmas already, and halloween hasn't even passed yet lol.

The stockings are out of the Simply Charmed cartridge and are cut at 2 3/4". The patterned paper was just some left overs that I had and I thought it would look pretty neat to have 3 different patterned papers for each stockings.

Birthday card using Simply Charmed

Hey everyone and good morning! Today it's my brothers birthday and I made a card for him using the cake from the Simply Charmed cartridge. Isn't it cute? I love all their faces.

For the base of the card I used kraft cardstock and it measure's 4 1/4"x 5 1/2". I added a peice of paper which had dots and cut it 1/2" smaller than the card. The green cardstock is cut 1/2" smaller than the patterned paper. I cut the cake at 3" and added some little pearls as his cheeks. I put dotted lines around the green paper and stamped Happy Birthday in the corner. I then pop dotted the cake to give him some more dimension.

I think this cake card turned out so adorable and I think my brother will like it. please comment and tell me what you think. Be back tomorrow with another card.

These little russian doll cards are 3 1/4"x 2". I cut the little dolls out and added the layers. for the base of the card I used the Shadow feature and cut 2 for each card. I attached them together by glueing a little peice of cardstock on either side.

Happy Wednesday!

Hey everyone, it's almost the weekend! Yippiee! Well this weekend I'm going to a baby shower and instead of buying a boring old card from a store I thought I'd make one. My friend Sarah is having a girl and i thought the best card to make was with a little bear.

The bear is from Create a Critter and is cut at 3". I made the card pink and used my scalloped dot punch. I had some extra paper from my DCWV paper pad and added it to the bottom. It looked kinda blah so I glued on some purple ribbon and added a bow. I think it turned out so adorable and I think Sarah will love it!

I bought a couple more cartridges online and now I'm just waiting for them to come in. I ordered Winter Frolic, Simply Charmed and Mini Monsters. Super excited to get them so I can have a different variety and make super cute cards :)

I'm off to bed cuz im very tired. I'll cya all here tomorrow for another card or project.

The girly girl is a rub and I added some little pearls to dot the i's. I hope you all like it, and please comment and tell me what you think. Be back tomorrow with another card :) cya then!

Say Cheese! and new shop promo

Hey everyone! Just got home from work about and hour ago and I'm exausted. But, I've been thinking about my cricut all day and wanted to make another card. The Cricut is very addicting! lol, I'm on it almost all day. So here's the card

This little guy comes from Create a Critter (I'm obsessed with this cart, as you probably know, teehee) he's so cute! The card measures 4"x4". I cut the mouse out at 2 3/4" and pop dotted him to give him some extra dimension. I added white ribbon and tied a little bow. The "say cheese" is a rub-on and i rubbed it onto a little speech bubble which is also from create a critter.

And guess what?! I reached over 1500 sales!! YAY! So that special someone who was 1500 will be getting a great suprise in the mail, along with their other items :) So for my next promo I'm gunna do free shipping on all orders $15 or more (before shipping tho).

So now I'm off to clean, ttyl! and cya here tomorrow! :)

Challenge Me Monday #28

Hey everyone! I made a card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #28. The challenge was In My Garden Harvest Time: create a project having to do with gardening. So here's the card I made.

I started out with a card 4 1/4" x 5 3/4". I cut out the mushroom, tree and flowers from Create a Critter. I pop dotted the tree and double pop dotted the mushroom. The word Grow and the little flowers and the mushroom are rub-ons from Imaginisce "Twitter Talk". I'll be adding this card to my etsy shop too. Hope you all like it :)

Bee Happy Card and Shop Promo!

Good morning! I woke up early this morning because 1. my cats were being crazy and runnnig everywhere and 2. my boyfriend was snoring veryyy loudly. So I decided to come out here and blog to you all about the card I made last night.

This one was so fun to make! :D The other day I was at the dollar store and found some packs of blank cards that come in 12 different colours and matching envelopes, so I picked some up in pink, purple, yellow and blue. (I think I may go get some more.) So for this card I used one of the purple cards. The cards measure 4 1/4" x 5 3/4".

I layered the background with the beige peice of cardstock and then the patterned paper on top. I think I bought this paper from a shop on etsy. Anyways, I cut the bunny from Create a Critter and put her altogether. The speech bubble is also from the same cartridge under one of the phrases. The "For some bunny special" is actually a rub on from this pack I bought of ebay.

I think this card turned out soo cute! I'll be listing it in my shop too. Oh, and as for the promo I'm doing, (well its been going on for awhile) I'm 4 sales away from my 1500th sale!! I'm so excited! So for the person who is my 1500th sale will get a freebie in with their package. And I just wanna say thanks to all my customers and your continued support for getting me this far! your all amazing :)

So, on that note I'll be back tomorrow with another card. Cya then!
