Happy St Patricks Day

Go ahead, ask me what I did Sunday night in front of the TV? Yup, I folded tea bag tiles. I'm afraid I'll be doing these in my sleep soon. I really do like the way they turned out. Every different paper results in such a completely different look. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the luck of the Irish!

Wild Cards

A few weeks ago JoJo brought her Expressions to a scrap and I got to play with the new cartridge and full 12x12 paper. I made the house and door envelope. The inside of the envelope matchs too.

I just had to play with the owl. I made him on my baby bug but needed the big bug for the cool envelope. I had to settle for a standard 5 1/2" square envelope. I love this cool card. The inside says "greetings wise one".

I modified the Thanks card by simply changing the sentiment to "HI" and was able to finish this one on the baby bug. I'll have to use a premade envelope unless I don't mail it until I see JoJo next.

I simply love this cartridge. It's got so much potential. Each card has a matching envelope with a liner. There are phrases, icons and frames in addition to the blackout and an alphabet.

February? Where did it go?

On February 13th I found the Cricut Cartridge, WILD CARD, on sale and just had to have it. I spent all night and most of the next day making Valentine Day cards for loved ones. They did get the card before Valentine's Day was over, but had to let me take them the next day for show and tell when I scrapped with some good friends.

I am limited with the cartridge in that I don't have the expressions. There are a lot of cards that I can make and I do have a friend that has the expressions who's been kind enough to share with me. I'll post more cards later.

I woke up one night and dreamed up this tea bag folded heart. I mulled it over in my mind a number of days, then finally had to try it. I think it turned out pretty cute.
