Preschool Elmo card

Happy Tuesday!


I finally had time to blog so I pre-scheduled yesterday morning’s and today’s posts.  My nephew started preschool at the end of August. I can’t believe he is old enough for school! Seems like yesterday he was a tiny 3 lb baby in the NICU.


He loves Elmo and went to Sesame Place this summer, so I made him an Elmo card to commemorate this milestone. I bought several Sesame Street cartridges on sale awhile back and the Seasons one had several school images. Lucky me!




I used some of my beloved Basic Grey stash on the card. These papers are from the Oxford 6×6 pad. I added a few SU enamel shapes as embellishment.


My nephew loved his card. I stopped to see him on his first day. I’m lucky that he lives close by and I can pop over there easily.




Have a great day!

Create a Critter Birthday Card



My nephew turned 4 last week and he had a Paw Patrol themed party. So I made him this card using the dalmatian from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.

I’ve had the Cricut Explore Air since October and have hardly touched it. I finally figured out (by watching this video) how to cut multiple layers on one mat. It’s quite easy! Now I should be able to use my machine more.


Now I am all caught up on posting cards. I will need to get crafty soon!


Have a great night!

One last page for tonight!!  I am ready to fall over LOL!


I wanted to get one more entry in on one of my Yahoo Groups. The challenge was to scrap square photos and I also incorporated a challenge for an online crop I am participating in to use black and metals.  I modified a sketch from ScrapMuch? and love how this came out!

I used my Cricut for the title and it wasn’t that painful LOL! I had a little issue with sizing my title in the Cricut Craft Room but it worked the second time I tried it.  I found the title on the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge.

Happy Easter!

I hope all of you had a great day full of family and friends!  We spent some time with my cutie pie nephew early in the afternoon and then we went to my sister in law’s for dinner.  Tonight I’m sharing two Easter cards I made today – yes I waited til the last minute, I work better under pressure!


Here is the one I made for my nephew~


I used my Cricut for the second time in a month and cut this adorable bunny.  I used my Big Shot for the first time to emboss the background and cut the grass borders. Full supply list at the end of this post.

I used a new MFT stamp set that I’ve had for about a month. I just had to make sure she got inked up before Easter was over!  The rest of the card is very old stash.  I’m having fun digging through my treasures and getting stuff used up! Full supply list at the end of this post. The layout is from this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch.
