Cute Door

Another Pinterest success! So excited.



This was surprisingly easy to do. I just cut out the words with my Cricut. To get the spacing right I used Cricut Craftroom and it cut the whole thing out without having to stop and reposition. I used Planin SchoolBook for the font. It was so easy! I don't have transfer tape so I had to peel off each letter individually, and I spaced it out in Craftroom so it didn't waste any of the

Thanksgiving Squirrl

Hello! Here is a project I did for CardzTV "Fall-o-ween" challenge. It's a bi-fold card with this cute squirrl. The card base was cut at 4x8, scored on each side at 2 to make the bifold. The accent browns were cut at 1 3/4 x 3 3/4 for each side and stamped with a fall pumpkin stamp with a brown stamp. The band is cut at 1 1/2 x 8 1/2 and wrapped around and secured with adhesive so it fits around the card but easily comes off.

The squirrl was cut at 3 inches from Create a Critter (shocking, I know!) and he is popped up on the band. The "pearl-like" beads on the outside were done with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Cream. The inside sentiment says happy thanksgiving, it's from the same set I used for the pumpkins on the outside. I think I got this set from Michaels out of the dollar bin years ago. Hope you like!

Christmas Decor

Oh my goodness, I get so excited for Christmas I can hardly wait to decorate. I've been seeing all these great ideas all over Pinterest for easy DIY decor. I did my first project today. I think it turned out pretty cute!

Here's the original:

Here's how mine came out:

Super easy, just cut cardboard out in desired size and cover with scrapbook paper. Cut out your letters using a die-cutting machine, or maybe even your computer will work. Attach your boards together using ribbon. I'm going to cover mine with Mod Podge once one of my pieces dries.

It's a Girl!

Here's a baby card that I've made for my boyfriends' employees' wife (wow that was a mouthful!) I used Create A Critter, my fav! The elephant was cut at 2 inches. And I actually used the shell part of the snail for the background circle. I made my own action wobble and attached it to the elephant and used fun foam to lift the whole circle up off the page. The background paper is Die Cuts With A View Animal Crackers stack. The stamp I used is from Stampin' Up So Many Sayings.

Hope you like it!
