Black Friday Walmart Midnight Craziness!!!!

Had a great Thanksgiving with one of my besties and her family in Kentucky.  We thought we would beat the Black Friday rush by going at midnight. WRONG!!!!! After manuevering through the store, I finally reached what I was there for, THE CRICUT LITE CARTRIDGES!!!!! I got the Four Legged Friends and my friend got Jolly Holidays.  I had tons of fun video taping the madness.  Enjoy!!!  Scrapbooking and making Christmas cards tonight.  Oh, I also picked up my Bind-It-All at Hobby Lobby!!! Yay me!!!

Leave me some love. I need it after the craziness!!!!!

Obsessed with Scrapbooking's Hello Thursday post and Giveaway

Check out Obsessed with Scrapbooking's Hello Thursday post and giveaway.  Joy displays Cricut's 7 new Cricut Lite cartridges which are available exclusively at Walmart.  Follow the link to her site.  She is giving away three prizes with extra chances to win.

Good luck to all who participate!

Another Smiley Birthday Card- Love this cartridge!!!!

If you don't own a Gypsy, now is the time to buy one.  I hear Michaels is selling them on Black Friday for $99.00!  That is an amazing deal! Also, Provocraft is offering a bundle package with the Cricut Personal machine and the Gypsy for $219.00.   If you buy the Gypsy and register by December 31, 2010 you will also get 5 free cartridges from Provocraft.  These are not literal cartridges but downloads to your Gypsy.  If you are thinking about it now is the time!

Anyway, I said all of that because Provocraft had an update recently that included 6 free downloads and the Smiley cartridge was one of them.  This cartridge is turning out to be so much fun!  Here is the most recent card I made.  I have a few more in the works.  Pictures will be posted soon.

I used the cakes shadow feature twice,  flipped one so the shape will be identical when it is folded and then welded it at the candles.  Scored it at the tips of the candles and there you go a card shaped like a birthday cake.  First time for me.  I used Stickles for the bling.  The paper is just from my stash.  It maybe old Stampin' Up! paper.

Let me know what you think in the comment box.  Thanks for stopping by! Ta-ta for now.

Busy making birthday cards!!

November is full of birthdays! I have a list going of all the birthday cards I want to make.  Here are three I made over the last two days.
The cake was cut from Cricut Doodlecharms using the Gypsy to cut the layers/contours. The birthday greeting was cut using Cricut Gypsy Wanderings and I used Stickles to add some glitz.

This card is similar to the first one except I left out the candles.  I used the Cuttlebug Swirls folder to emboss the cake.  I chose not to use the shadow feature. I also sprayed the cake with Glimmer Mist.

This card was made using Cricut Smiley available only on the Gypsy. I played around with the layers trying to figure out the order and colors  She turned out cute!  I'm sure one of friends will love this one.  I also used my iRock to add some bling to the party hat.

All of my paper is paper I have had on hand for some time. 
Still have several more cards to make.  I will post soon.  Tomorrow: a wedding card and gift.
Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment if you like what you see.

Loving this Cricut Vinyl!

I came across a great find today at the local thrift store.  2 - 12x12 frames $3.00 each!!! What a steal!!! Here is a picture of what I had in the works and now it is complete. I must say I am very proud of my latest creation.  If you would like one to give as a gift let me know.  Makes an excellent wedding/anniversary gift. One stipulation, the frame is on you!  (Unless, I find more steals!!!)

This is the frame I found.
I sanded and painted the frame and inserted my creation.
My finished artwork!
I used Cricut Vinyl and Gypsy Font and linoleum tile.
