A Note For You...

Hello Everyone!

I planned to post something at least weekly,so this week I'm sharing a quick card I made with the Art Philosophy cart and patterned paper from the CTMH Stella paper pack. The flower is a cricut cut and I stamped the pedals and sentiment with the Just for You stamp set. This set coordinates with this cart and is part of the Art Philosophy package sold exclusively by CTMH. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Vinyl Projects


I hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday. I only have one more day until the kiddos are out of school and then we will officially begin summer vacation. I want to share some vinyl projects I made for friends and family to give as gifts.

The brushes were made for my niece to give to 3 of her friends that will be graduating this Saturday. I used the Alphalicious cart for the font.

The glasses are for a co-worker to give as a gift to someone. I used Birthday Bash font for the beer mug , and Storybook for the other glass. I hope the recipients enjoy.

Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Graduation Card

Hello Everyone,

Two posts in one week!! I'm on a roll LOL. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I want to share a card I made for a co-worker's daughter that will be graduating from high school next week. I was totally inspired to make this after seeing the BEAUTIFUL tags that Emma created She released another set of stamps and dies this morning, so be sure to stop by her blog and check it out. The new release is available for preorders right now.

I was looking through the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge handbook that is exclusively sold through Close To My Heart. This cartridge has something for everyone. I found an awesome tag/card on it that I used to make my card. I used cardstock from recollections and patterned paper from the  DCWV high school stack. The cutie diploma was made with the Recess cart. The scallop circle was also cut from the Art Philosophy cart. The coordinating stamp is from Close to My Heart. I love that they have so many stamps that coordinate with the cartridge. I added some red tulle and tied a bow with ribbon from Walmart. I plan to add a small pocket inside to add a gift card.

Again, thanks for stopping by and if you would like to check out the Art Philosophy cart or any other items from CTMH you can here.

MCT Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hello Bloggy Friends!

It's been a long time since my last post. I've been on summer vacation for a week now and my kids will be out soon. Hopefully I will find more time to post things. I'm still crafting, but haven't found a happy medium when it comes to posting.

Anyhoo, I wanted participate in Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. You have to use a cart with a frame. I chose to use Art Philosophy Cart bt Close To My Heart. I love this cart and got it free in March when I signed up as a consultant for CTMH. I love their products! Especially their stamps. I haven't had the chance to do much "consulting" but hope to in the near future. You can visit my site @

Back to my challenge project. I made a decorative frame for my daughter's preschool classroom in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. I used the Recess cart for the school supplies. I recently won this cart from Cricut Chick. I had never won a cartridge before, and I was sooo happy because this one was on my wish list. I used the Jubilee cart (I think) for the title. It was cut in vinyl. The red and white ribbon is from Stampin Up and all other ribbon is American Crafts. I plan to let my daughter take this to her teacher with a few other items tomorrow.
