DIY ink stand.

I finally got rid of an old computer that I had on my work space.  This has really opened up so much room.  I had a lot of ink pads that would not fit into my Stampin Up ink pad tower, so I decided to try and make one.  I purchased White foam board from the Dollar Store and started cutting.  I used hot glue to hold it all together.  I used two foam boards but I still want to add two more shelves since I have pretty much filled these ones up, so I will buy another foam board and add to this.
I want to put washi tape along all of the edges to make them smoother.  I'm not sure if this is going to fall apart, but I'm really liking it so far.

Baby Girl boxed card.

I made this card for a co-worker last summer.  The cut file is on Cricut Design Space, if you search boxed cards you will find it.  It is quite simple, if I had had more time I would have embellished more.

Cricut Tool Caddy

For my birthday this month I received a bottle of wine in a wooden box.  I was about to throw the box away when I had a great idea, turn it into a cricut tool caddy.
I created a template and then asked my neighbour (who has a dremel) to make the cuts.  I still have to decorate the box but this is what it looks like.

Shimmer and Shine Birthday

Last year I was asked to make a Shimmer and Shine birthday card as well as cupcake toppers.  I really just printed the picture for the card, added some watercolor background  and mounted on a 6 x 6 card base.
For the toppers I printed and then used a scallop punch and put them on cake pop sticks.

Hockey birthday card

Thus year is all about using supplies I already have. So to make this card I dug into my scrapbooking supplies. I found this jersey it was perfect because the recipient of the card is a Toronto fan. I thought of cutting the sticks and puck on my Cricut but found some stickers for them. The background papers came from a SCT sampler.
The inside of the card had a Stanley cup (Close to my Heart) which I stamped with stazon in. We had already signed the card when I took a picture of the card so I am not showing the full inside.

Plates for Santa and Ruldoph

Here are some plates I made for my neighbours. I got the plates from the Dollar Tree.
These cuts are free with my Cricut subscription.

Christmas album

I can hardly believe that I have finished my Christmas Album already.  This year at Crop and Create I purchased an album kit. It is the first time I have ever done one of these.  I finished the album before Christmas so all I had to was plop the photo's down.
Thanks to Catherine and her gang for this.
