Saint Patrick's Day T-Shirt

Here is a T-Shirt that I made for my son's girlfriend to wear at work tomorrow.  The shamrock came from CTMH Art Philosophy, and the pot of gold came from Creat a Critter 2.  I used my Imagine to print and cut the images.  For the Pot of Gold I used the color stacking tutorial (found on my blog).
This was a fun quick project to make.

Happy St. Patricks day to everyone.

Crackle Paint Masculine Birthday

This is a masculine birthday card I made for a co-worker.  I have had a bottle of crackle paint finish for about 4 years and have never used it.  I decided that I was going to use it for the first time.  I love the effect that this gives.  I used a dark brown paint and a tan paint from the dollar store, the crackle finish and my cricut to make this card.  The twine and the pearls are also from the dollar store.
I used Craftroom Basics for the font..

Rock on birthday

This is going to be my son's birthday card.  He wears a lot of black t-shirts so I thought this might be a good idea.  I wanted something bright for the layered background as it will be early spring, and lets face it after this winter I want something bright. 
I used my cricut imagine to print the layered papers, I used Greeting Cards Inside and out, for the lettering and the backing for my sentiment I used a pattern from Industrial Glow. 
The Rock On was cut using Black Letter.  The sentiment is from CTMH.  Ink was my pink stamper Darkest Night.  I used Martha Stewart Opaque Marker Set to do the stitching on the shirt.

Lego card

Here is a lego card I made for a co-worker who is attending a birthday for a nine year old boy.  The gift was lego, so I thought of this card to go with the gift.  I used SCAL to create the lego man inside the card.

Baby Cards

One of my favorite pass times is watching crafting videos.  I really enjoy cricut videos.  Lately there haven't been many as most videos seem to be about the new Cricut Explore.  While I would love to have an Explore, I am not about to purchase one (if one was given to me I would accept), I currently have 6 cricuts, the original, 2 expressions (one I don't update so I can use it with SCAL), a cake machine, an Imagine, and an expression2.  I'm happy with all of these.  I don't like having to use my computer to craft.  If I go to a crop I don't want to bring a computer, I do have a gypsy, and I take that to a crop.
Anyway I found a video by cardcrazy09, she used the Wild Card cartridge for the card base,  I have to say I never looked at this cartridge as carefully as I should have.  I found this a really good idea and decided to make the cards myself.  I had intended on using ribbon on the cards but I forgot to add it and went ahead and adhered the layer to the card.
I used scraps for this card, and stamps from Inkadinkado.
on  the inside of the card I cut the base layer for the giraffe and glued it to the inside.
The card was cut at 6.25 and the giraffe at 4.25.

Happy Birthday

Here is a card I made for my son's girlfriend.  Inspiration for this card came from Christine at Creations with Christine.  I changed it up as I did not like the water color that she did as a background for the hats.  This is a simple card, I used Doodlecharms cricut cartridge and cut the border hats.  I cut these at 1.75 inches.  I was going to "square off" the hats but as I put them down and reached for the glue the were on an angle and I think I like this better.  The sentiment comes from SU, and the ink from My Pink Stamper.
