baby gift

So today is the final day for one of the girls in my office, she is going on maternity leave at the end of day today.  Yesterday we had a luncheon for her.  Here is the gift I made.  There are 12 onsies numbered one through twelve, they are for having her picture taken.  I made these with my cricut imagine, and my expression.  I would have done them all on the imagine but I was having trouble aligning the print and cut feature, so I just printed the paper on the imagine and cut with the expression.

Wedding Card with Envelope

Here is a wedding card and envelope I made for my co-worker.  She is going to a wedding next week, the brides colours are from the Sea Mist family.  The card is inspired by a pinterest card, but I have changed it up to make it my own.
I used the wedding cricut cartridge and the ornamental iron 2 cartridges to make this card.

Very Quick Birthday Card

I told a co-worker I would make him a card for his wife's birthday which is today.  Her favorite colours are pink and purple.  I threw together this card.  Inspired by Pinterest (posted on my Cricut Craft board), but I did not make the flower (to save time).
All paper is Stampin Up.
Ink and Sentiments Stampin Up.

Happy Canada Day 2014

The weather forcast wasn't looking to great for us in Ottawa yesterday.  I did have faith as the rain they were calling for on Sunday and Monday didn't happen.  Well yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day.  We had lots of food, friends and laughter.
My neighbour and I made these cute cupcakes for desert.  I cut the maple leafs with my cricut cake machine using gumpaste.  I used the Art Philosophy Cart and cut them at 1.75 inches.

Hope you all had a great day, and an early Happy Independence Day to all my American friends.

Batman Mask for Ethan.

One of the girls in my office has an adorable little boy named Ethan.  Ethan loves Batman, so I promised him a Batman mask.  I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge to cut this and I cut it at 7 1/4 inches.  Hope it fits him.
