Cricut Mothers Day Cards

Cricut Mothers Day Cards
Made with Martha Stewart elegant cake art Cartridge.
 Love the Doily Border I used cut to length 8 1/2 inches and cut the layered hearts out at 1 1/2, 1 1/4, and 1 inch.
Heritage cricut cartridge

Cut the bike out at 4" cut once in white card and once in brown card then cut the shadow in black. From the white piece I cut out the basket and embossed it through the cuttlebug, I cut all the pieces that are red from the white bike then coloured them with Tim Holtz distress markers. I coloured the seat and hand grips grey. I then glued these painted layers onto the brown layer. I coloured the spokes and chain with a silver pen on the brown layer. Then glued the bike to the black layer. The tag on the top is cut at 1" using Tree1 pg24 Frame Shift, then inked and stamped. The back ground is embossed with Tim Holtz Brick wall texture fade. I have coloured the flowers with Colour wash and Perfect Pearls Mist. The Lamp post is stamped on transparency.

Cut Using A Childs Year Cricut Cartridge
I used the negative of the cut and attached it with foam tape to a contrast background.

Damask Decor Cricut cartridge.
Love the envelope setting on this cartridge. I also used the negative of the cut out for a stencil and lay it over my envelope and sprayed perfect pearls mists through it. I cut a 3" envelope and placed it on the back of the tag to hold a gift card.
OOps there goes that flip photo again.
 The Mum was welded on my gypsy using Black letter font. The small hearts were left over from my first card.

Ribbons and Rosettes inspired by the latest Cricut Magazine. (April 2012)

Cut 3 <Butterfly> at 3". Then trimmed off 1/2" on the straight edge scored on the marks and also a line in between each mark, folded and glued the 3 sections together. Sprayed them with lettuce Medow color wash and Perfect pearls Mist Sour Apple and Perfect Pearl. The tag is cut from <Flower3md> and MUM from Martha Stewart elegant cake art.
Have a Happy Mothers Day and use that Cricut. All products are available at Scottie Crafts

London Market Not so Mini Album

London Market Not so Mini Album

This is my design team item for April. I have used London Market paper by Pink Paislee. I used 12 by12 papers as well as the 6 by 6 papers plus Chipboard buttons and an Ephemera pack. I will add my photos later and more flowers and embellishments. The actual construction of this album is quick the decorating to this point took me a lot of fun filled hours and there are a lot more to go to finish it. But what a pleasure lost in my craft room. I was inspired to do this album by 2 lovely ladies Kay O'Connor and Karen Davies. Thanks for show and tell. The original album was created by a very clever lady called Anne Fevik.

Sorry I can't get the next 3 photos to turn around.

There are so many tags and hidden pockets to put pictures and journaling. This would easily hold my wedding photos (after 30 years it is about time they had a face lift.)
