YAY! I'm soo excited it's friday! Woohoo! I made these cute cupcake mini cards using the Sweet Treats cartridge. I just got it in the mail and was soo excited to use it :D

I cut them out at 3" using the card feature. I cut out all the layers and for the pink swirl I added some glitter glue to it (you can see in the second pic). Love this cartridge! I think these turned out cute. :)

Challenge Me Monday #44

Yay! It's Monday and that means another Fantabulous cricut challenge! This weeks challenge is to use a cartridge that you haven't used in over 6 months. That was kinda hard for me since I haven't had my cricut for that long but I chose a cartridge that I haven't used the longest. I actually only used Mini Monsters once since I got it!! It's crazy right?

I cut the minster out at 3.25" and embossed him with my Swiss dots embossing folder. I thought this would be a perfect boys birthday card so I used one of the new stamps I got the Pink by Design- take the cake.

Don't forget to upload your project at the Fantabulous cricut blog for your chance to win some great prizes :)

Sprinkled With Fun

Hey blogger friends! The weekend is going by too fast, boo :( I wish every day was a weekend, that would be great! lol, but here's another card that I thought I'd share with you all today, here it is...

For the card base I used my SCAL and welded together two tags and cut it out in yellow cardstock and then I cut a smaller tag out of white. The cake is from Simply Charmed and she's cut at 3.25". The sentiment is from the Pink by Design stamp set - Take the Cake. I must tell you, I am in loveee with these stamps!

For the background I embossed pink cardstock with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder and then I used my Martha Stewart border punch doiley lace.

Challenge Me Monday

Hey everyone! At the Fantabulous Cricut today the challenge is to incorporate something sweet on your project. Candy, cupcakes, cake etc. Since valentines is coming up I thought I would make sometreat bag toppers.

I cut a price of pink paper out at 5"x3.5". I used my Martha Stewart punch on one side and folded the paper in half. The love bug and the sentiment are both from Simply Charmed. I cut the bug out at 2.25" and the "be mine" is cut at 1.25". I bought the clear baggies at the dollar store(100 for a buck!) and I used my tape runner on the bag to secure it on. Staples would work too. I put some candy hearts in the bag, I also had some valentine candy corn but my bf ate them all before I got to them lol!
These would be great for kids to take to school. I'm going to make a few more and bring them into work. I also bought some Hello Kitty valentines at Walmart today that I'll include in there.

Cupcake Tags

Good morning! I woke up really early this morning, I just couldn't sleep. I kept thinking about these tags I wanted to make lol! Yesturday I went to Michaels craft store because they had cartridges on sale for $16.99! They opened at 9 but I got there at 10 and they were all sold out!! I was so sad :( but I ended up getting this cute paper pack from Recollections called All Girl. It has some super cute pages with heels, dresses, lipstick and also stripes and dots. Anyways, back onto these tags...

I made them using SCAL and I'm suprised at how well they turned out. The paper on the bottom of the cupcakes is from that Recollections paper pack and I bought the sparkly paper from the dollar store. I also bought some in purple. I forgot where I got the ribbon from but the pearls are also from the dollar store. They have some great craft supplies for cheap ;) I'll be listing these into my etsy shop too.

Thanks for looking and I hope your weekend is going great! :)

Unicorn Card

Here's a simple card I made using the Paisley Cartridge. I was looking through all my cartridges and I noticed I haven't used this cart in awhile so I just had to make a card!

The card base is an A2 card using kraft paper. The dotted paper is from DCWV which I cut half an inch smaller than the base and the light pink paper is cut the same. I used my EK Success Scalloped punch and used some 3/8" satin ribbon and tied a bow. The unicorn is cut at 3 3/4" and I stamped the sentiment at the top. I've noticed that I've been using that Happy Birthday stamp alot.. I think I need some new stamps!

Thanks for looking and please comment as I love to read them :)

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday

I hope everyone had a great holiday! We're finally back to our usual Challenge Me Monday's. At FCCB this week the challenge was to make something with snow.

I found this cute snowman and snowflake from and I used my Sure Cuts Alot to cut them out. This card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I used my new cuttlebug(xmas pressie) to emboss the blue background. (sorry I forget what the folder is called) and I pop dotted the snowman and snowflake. I also used some sparkly glue on the snowflake and used my black gel pen to outline the snowmans coat.

Wanna play along with us at FCCB and win great prizes? Head on over and get started :)
