Child's Birthday Card

I made this card this weekend for a child turning 3yrs.  My two year old and I were unable to go to the party due to me getting sick (probably not a good idea for me to be coughing all over the little ones).  I got my inspiration from  If you don't know about this site, which who doesn't, it's great for ideas.  I go to the SU gallery, and then click on the stamp set of interest.  So many ideas, so little time.  :)
Love, love, this site.

Card and picture frame

A fellow co-worker asked if I would make a picture frame for her to give as a gift, and a card for her mother with her picture.  I tried to use the cricut, but I had to use me creative memories cutters.  If anyone does a project on how to make a picture frame with the cricut let me know.

Stretch your imagination frustration

I have to say I was a little frustrated with this cartridge when trying to make a card and layering it.  I tried to do what I do when using the Wild Card cart(love, love the Wild Card cart).  Does not work the same, when you try to use the card button and then try to layer it doesn't work. :(  I went to youtube videos to see if she had any answers and the card she made on the video was really cute, but she seemed to have the same issue.  Well anyways if anyone has any tips on how to use this cart let me know.  This is the card I made using it, but if you look close you can see I had trouble with the layering (it was either too small or too big).  I wasted a lot of paper.  I do have to say despite the issues with it the card, turned out pretty cute.

Great NSD Weekend!!!

What a fun weekend. Had a BBQ with friends on Friday.  I got to go to my card club on Saturday.  I made some crafts with my 10 yr old daughter and today after work I was able to sneak some time to take part in a few challenges on My pink stamper.  The great thing about the challenges is that I work better with less time.  On Saturday at my card club, I only made a few bookmarks and one card.  I was there for at least 4 hrs.  Maybe because we are chatting and sharing ideas.  I also put in another SU order in.  (They are discontinuing some colors I like, so I had to stock up on them.) I love getting together with the club, I just tend to chat a lot :). Anyways I had way less time after work tonight and made better progress.

I did get to go on ebay and get Sweettreats and Forever Young carts.  I have been drooling over these carts for a little while now, but I was only going to buy them if I got a good deal and I did.  Yae!!!  Can't wait to use them. 
Here are the bookmarks I made and my card.  Hope you like them.

My Pink Stamper Challenge NSD #6

My 10yr old daughter and I made bookmarks together.  I had made some at my card making club and she loved them so much that she thought she would like to make some.  These are the one she put together.  It was a lot of fun to create something with her.

I had her put another layer of paper on the back to make it more sturdy (she chose SU whisper white)

P.S. She was soooo excited I placed it on my blog.  It made her feel so special. :)
