A Summer Frame

This is a frame that I altered during a Swarm that my sister and I went to. The challenge was to use vinyl (the word Summer) and put a picture in the middle (hence the ugly stick figure). I found this paper and thought it was so cute. I made the feet using a cut from New Arrival and used ribbon for the flip-flops. I put a rhinestone in the middle. I also used some Stickles to accent some of the paper. I actually got fourth place out of 14 for this. I was pretty impressed with myself, considering all the talented ladies there.

Mandy also made a frame that I think is adorable, but she didn't finish it in time to enter the contest. I have a picture of Lily and her stuffed monkey that will look great in this frame!

Paper Doll Princesses

I made these princess dolls for my niece, who is in love with them all! I think they turned out pretty well. I got a lot of inspiration from the Cricut messageboard. I cut them out, blinged them up with Stickles, laminated them, and put Velcro on the back, so she can play with them with the rest of her paper dolls I made for her previously.

Sleeping Beauty (Aurora):


I also made Jasmine, but I forgot to take a picture before sending them off. Sorry!

Baby Boy Announcements

I made these for my sister, who had a baby boy a few weeks ago. I used my Cricut for must of it (of course!), including CDS to make it exactly the size I wanted. I used the Fabulous Finds and New Arrival cartridges. I used my Dreamkuts to cut the blue cards and the Cropadile to set the eyelets. I made 65 of them, so they took a while. I hope she likes them!

Baby Girl Card

I made this card for my cousin's baby. The colors went better together in real life, but I still think it is pretty cute.

Hi! I have been seeing a lot of other people's great crafting blogs, and I thought I would create one of my own. This will be a blog to showcase the projects I make. I would appreciate any and all comments you have (but be kind)! I am still learning. Thanks for looking!
