Cards, Creating Keepsakes & Cricut Love

Summer? Gone? OCTOBER? Gone? Time is slipping by so quickly these days. While I haven't been keeping my blog up to date I have been very busy scrapping, card-making, crafting and even getting published. This month you can find my work in Cricut Magazine, Cricut Idea Book: Families and Creating Keepsakes

It just breaks my heart that Creating Keepsakes is calling it quits and moving to a digital format but I am SUPER excited to have a darling layout of the baby in the very final paper issue. Check out page 18!

While I still create primarily layouts, I have delved into card-making a bit. It is so much fun to simply sit down and create with beautiful supplies and not have to worry about photos or journaling. I am keeping them simple for now, but I can see the draw to adding lots of layers...

I used my Cricut to cut out the sentiment on a shipping tag. The dress form is cut from the Wall Decor cart.
I finally broke down and ordered a giant lot of seam binding so now I am having lots of fun dyeing it and crinkling it. 
 I need to keep a stash of these cards handy...I am always scrambling to whip one up when I need one.

I am absolutely LOVING my Cricut these days. 

 I made this card for my niece, who had her first baby this summer. He is soooo cute! I made the card with my Cricut and the Baby Steps cart, along with the Phrases cart. This one is pretty complicated, mostly because of the little pieces but it is really fun to put together.

I whipped up these cute little 3D pumpkins from CCR and decided to cut a few more for the kids to assemble on Thanksgiving. It's that easy!

A few days ago...this darling turned 6. Oh, time, why must you speed along? I made him this fun shirt using my Cricut. It is really easy! The hardest part was sewing around the little circle inside the 6, other than that it was a piece of cake.

And yesterday I cut tons of pumpkin cupcake wrappers for Halloween parties. You can find them in the October 2013 issue of Cricut Magazine in the Spooky Treats section. 

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
