I made this card for the My Cricut Craft Room design team. The theme is {Happy}. I thought these mice looked quite happy & the title comes from the song, Because I'm Happy. Inside the card says "Clap along if you know what Happiness is to You".  I used my Cricut Explore to cut the mice from the Disney Happily Ever After cart. & printed the title with the Explore as well.

 Halloween Blog Hop

             Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Halloween Blog Hop

Today I made a halloween card to share. I used a couple different cricut cartridges for my images, for the hat I used Best Images of 2010, for the caldron I used Paper Doll Dress Up. Also used a svg file from Miss Kate's Cuttables for the witch's legs & boots. I added orange stickles to her socks & some platinum liquid pearls to the bubbling caldron. The two little ghosts are eyelets that I've had in my stash for a very long time. This is a 5x7" card. I have a few more halloween projects for you to peek at below.


This house was so fun to make! It's an image from Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge & I cut it all with my Explore machine. A couple images are from different carts. like the crow up top is from the October 31st cartridge as well as the pumpkins & pumpkin patch sign. 
The top opens up so candy or cupcakes can be added in to the house. This will be filled with goodies come October 31st....

How exciting, I've been asked to be on Erica's Design Team & I am really excited & happy that I'm able to do this. Every so often I will be making something new for Erica's Craft Room & her team. There's a group of wonderful people in this group & am pleased to be a part of it.

Pumpkin & Witch's Hat

This project was so fun. The hat comes off & you can add goodies inside. The file was from & I love their svg files, they cut so nice. This will be cute with a flameless tea light inside. This guy stands over 8" high.

These pic's show how I finished it off, the hat has a couple leafy vines that i added some ink to, with some bling on the eyes. I love this pumpkin with the witch's hat.

Another fun poinsettia Christmas card. Thanks for taking a look.
I love making Christmas cards, one of my favorite things to do with paper crafts.  Again this card was made with my Winter Wonderland cricut cart. from Anna Griffin.
Christmas in July-This was a simple ornament card I made on a whim. I used the Winter Wonderland cart. & my Explore machine to cut the ornamnet. I embossed the leaves with my cuttlebug & swiss dots folder. I used red ripple holographic card stock & gold shimmery card stock. Very simple card to make. Thanks for stopping by.

Rosette Tutorial for Design Space

First I found the rosette I liked on Anna Griffins Summer Soiree cartridge & put it on the canvas in design space. You will need 4 panel for this rosette, so I sized the one panel & duplicated it 3 times.. This one is the Pool rosette. I cut these particular panels at 4.68" wide x 2.10" in height. Make sure you have your score tool inserted in your Explore. :)

The folding is easy, find the score lines & do an accordion fold. Over, under, over, under, once you start folding it goes quick.

This is when I start adding glue. I use Aileen's Turbo Tacky Glue-Works as good as hot glue in my book.

I use little paper clips, but it's not necessary. I use them because I have them. If you want to I am sure clothes pins would work fine. I've made them without clipping them & they stay together fine.

Here are the 4 panels glued together.

Now I lay the 4 panels down & start to form a circle so I can then glue the last two ends together. This is probably the hardest part & it's not really hard at all. :)

Here it is standing on end.All ends glued together. Next I need to lay it flat to adhere a circle or scallop or whatever shape you want for the middle, this gives it some stability to hold the rosette in a circle.

Now this might look goofy, but it's the way I do it. I have to set something with a bit of weight to it to hold this rosette down, otherwise I will never finish & get the middle circle glued on. Don't laugh. I have arthritis in my hands & most all joints so this is what works for me.

The final rosette, I cut the center circle at 1.5"

I cut this one with double sided cardstock so I have two sides to my rosette. I loved doing double sided paper for these. This cardstock is from a DCVW stack. I hope my tutorial was easy to follow. I have to admit it's the first one I've ever done. Please show me what you make....Have fun & I have to warn you, they are addicting.
