Mini Monsters Centerpiece

The other day I decided to get out my Mini Monsters Cartridge and see what I could make. What fun! I used all scraps with the exception of one sheet of purple. I did use it later on a another monster so I think that counts as using all scraps. My son's birthday is at the end of October and he always wants a Halloween party. I'm thinking we could have a monster mash theme party this year. He did really like the centerpiece so maybe it won't be so hard for me to talk him into it. I just love this cartridge.

Action Wobble Card

Hello I've been wanting to make my own action wobble card for a long time. I think they are oh so cute!!.  Being that I live in Jordan and we only have 1 scrapbook store, not even a Michelas or Joanns here, I made my own.  They were super simple to make and I think I'll be making a lot more in the future.  I used my new 3 Birds on Parade cartridge for this cute little pilgrim.

Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge

Hello- over at Bitten By the Bug 2 they issued a challenge to use the tree cut off the Heritage cartridge. Well, surprisingly that is one of the cartridges I don't own. So I used the tree off the Wall Decor cratridge. I actually used some of the embelishments that have been collecting dust over the years. The trees are cut at 4 in. and the apples, leaves, basket and ladder are all from those packages of buttons you can get in the sewing section. Maybe that doesn't make sense, but it does to me. The letters that spell fall were from my stash as well. I think maybe I bought those 5 years ago. I like to think they were just waiting for the right occasion to make thier apperance.

Challenge is at

Sorry I don't know how to put a link in my post. Maybe someday I'll learn. Anyway enjoy the card. I'm quite proud of it.

I can't stop making notebooks. They are so much fun. Not sure if I'm making them right or not. I seem to smoosh the wires a bit. I guess I'll just have to keep practicing. This first one is for a friend who asked me to make one to give to her freind at work. She said Tourquise and Pink I'm in love! I'll add her inital when I find out what it is. I think I'll make more like this one. The other one was for my son Khalid. He likes dinosaurs and being 12 didn't want anything cutsey. I do believe this is the first time that cartridge has seen the light of day.

Baby Shower Centerpieces

I'm so excited, a while back I made 2 centerpieces for a friend of my to take to a baby shower she was hosting. They turned out really nice. She said everyone was very impressed. So this freind called me and said the the lady she gave the centerpieces wanted my number, she wanted 2 centerpieces for a baby shower she was hosting. She wasn't very specific, she just said for a girl, and cute. So I got busy and made 2 sets. I figure she can pick the ones she likes and she'll have a choice. I'll bring the 2 she doesn't want back home and save them for another occasion.

It's going to be hard to see them go, but I think I'll get over it pretty quickly!

Teacher Gifts

My daughter's last day of school is Thursday, I'm a little sad because it just means she's getting a little older. She'll always be my baby. She's only 5 so I guess she's not moving out quite yet. I made a card set for each of her teachers. I hope they like them. I might make a notebook to to match if I have time. All the cuts are from Create a Critter. This is probably hands down one of my top 10 cartridges. Sooo cute.

A More Grown Up Project

Today I felt like making a card set that is a little more grown up. I like how it turned out. The birds and birdcages are from Songbird. That's such a nice cartridge for easy cards. The box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The owl card is from Give a Hoot.

I Got Crafty Finally

Wow! it's been a while since I did anything crafty. It's starting to warm up a bit so I thought I'd let the paper fly. I have a new passion (at least for now) I love love love making these little notebooks. I think they are so cute. Very easy to make and everyone I've shown them to have loved them. I think they will make great gifts for my Husbands older nieces.

I made a few cards also. The 2 baseball ones are for my sons baseball coaches. I think they turned out pretty cute.

Minnie Mouseamania (is that a word?)

Hey everybody did you miss me? I just can't get into a scrappy mood lately. Not sure what it is. It's been kind of cold lately here in Jordan. Maybe that's it, I don't want to go up to my studio and be cold. I need to get a t.v. and dvd player up there. I've been hauling up the small t.v. when I go up there but for some reason the kiddos want it back down for the Wii. Anyway, my friend Debbie issued a challenge for the few of us who chat over on the cricut message board. Her challenge was to do a Disney project. I was going to do Toy Story, but I just couldn't get into it. I had some Minnie Mouse cuts already cut and glued together so I made some cards with those. It counts if they are already cut out and just need a project right? Anyway enjoy

My Daughter's 5th Birthday Party Decorations

This past weekend my baby turned 5. I can't believe it. For some reason she thinks something magical will happen when she's 5. The past few weeks she's been going around telling people she can't wait to be 5. Ahh to be young again. Anyway, we chose Hello Kitty as the theme. Doing party decorations is one of my favorite things to do with my Cricut. I just love making banners, invites and goody bags. I might start working on next year's party, ha ha.

Owl Card

Well, it's been a while my blog friends. I've been busy working on my daughter's 5th birthday party decorations. More on that when they are done. On to my post. Over on the cricut message board I chat with some ladies I consider my friends.Here is the link to our thread: We each take turns choosing a little used cartridges we might have. My friend Debbie challenged us to make something with an owl. Apparently she really likes owls. I tried to go for something not so cutsey. I do love the owl on Create a Critter but alas I went with the owl card on Just Because Cards. I think that cartridge was getting a little lonely. I really should play equally with all my cartridge friends.
The card is cut at 5 3/4 the owl is cut at 10 inches. I know this may sound huge, but it cuts it in relation to the card size. I had to adjust the size until I got the size I wanted. This made my daughter happy, she got all my practice cuts. She calls them the mommy and the babies. I cuttlebugged all the layers. I wasn't too sure about how it would turn out, but I kind of like it.

Do you like my laundry?

I've been wanting to try resticking my cricut mats for a while. Being I live overseas, I can't just run out and buy new mats. I noticed that I'm down to my last new mat so I'm giving this a try. Yes, there are 15 of them babies. I washed them all and had them propped up on a towel to dry, then I decided maybe they needed some room between them. So I hung them up on clothes drying rack. I hope this works. I have the Zig two way chisel pen ready to go when they are dry. Otherwise I have to pay HUGE shipping cost to get more mats. Wish me luck.
