I decided instead of a Valentine's banner, I would put together a banner that could be hung at my daughter's school during an upcoming tournament for basketball boys and girls grades 4-6. I used Bazzill cardstock and Color Bok cardstock to make the banner. I cut the banners with Straight From the Nest cart, the white flowers from Mother's Day Bouquet cart, the circles from Georgia cart. I cut the letters from Hannah Montana (daddy's girl with shadow). I cut the basketballs out of Basketball cart.

SPL stands for St. Pauls Lutheran School, they are the Falcon's

On the dividing banners I cut a piece of SEI paper 1.5 X 12 and scored the paper 1/4 inch and folded, wrapped it and stapled it and adhered it to the banner with glue dots. These are so pretty but are kind of tedious!

Here is the team at their last tournament on January 29, 2010. Their next tournament is February 11-12 and February 19. Go Falcon's!

First 2 Cards using my Imagine

I made this card for a friend. I printed the paper on my Imagine and the guitars are from Rock Princess and font is from Printing Press. The music notes are from Hannah Montana.

I made this for last weeks Circle Challenge, but didn't get it posted in time. I printed the paper from Mr. Frosty on my Imagine and the snow flakes from Winter Woodland cart.


I made these Valentines for my daughter to give to her friends. I do this every year, just because it is fun! The heart versions are for the girls and the cupid is for the boys. I used Echo Park Paper in Be Mine. I cut the heart out using Gypsy Wanderings and the cupid is from Sweethearts cart. The mini hearts are punched out using a CM punch


Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge B.A.B.Y

I chose this picture from my trip to Chicago with my mom and sister in September 2010. I used Echo Park Paper in Be Mine. I cut the butterflies out of the new Spring Cartridge and the border above the picture from Ornamental Iron. I used the Script Cuttlebug folder on the corner pieces. The brad on the left is from SEI. The outside of the butterflies has diamond glaze and the inside is sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Patina.

Here is the companion page of my mom and sister. I used more of the same paper, more butterflies as well.

Black Friday Weekly Challenge ~ Cricut Circle

This project required two different cuts from Cricut Cartridges, the color black and something recycled or repurposed. I am not sure where this idea came from but since my family was drinking wine over the Thanksgiving holiday I took some of the corks and made the back of the wreath. I dug in the box of corks they keep for making "cork boards" and pulled out the same brand corks to assure they were the same size.

I made this wreath using a green from Basic Grey Green at Heart and SEI Alpine papers. I cut the leaves from Winter Woodland Cartridge.

I sprayed the leaves with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist which you can see better in this picture without the flash.

I cut the poinsettia's and holly out of the Christmas Cartridge on my Gypsy out of Bazzill cardstock. I used Candy Cane Stickles to make them sparkle. I used green rhinestones with the I Rock.

Here you can see the back of my wreath. I glued the corks together with regular glue because that is all I had at the time I was developing my idea but then I cut out some cardboard and stapled that to them for support. I layered the holy leaves so the darker and lighter colored green alternated. I wanted to add some ribbon, but haven't had time yet. I think this would make a cool ornament or something to hang on a door. I plan to put together a big one next. I stole all the saved corks from my parents!

December Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge~Christmas Box or Bag

I used SEI paper from the Alpine Frost line. I cut the bag from Tags, Bags & Boxes Cart. I decorated it with a Tree cut from Christmas Cart I got free from the downloads to my Gypsy. The deer, snowflakes and poinsettia from Winter Woodland Cart. I embellished with Crystal, Holly, Candy Cane and Black Diamond Stickles. To complete the requirement of using something from a sponsor to Cricut Circle Magazine, I used my Imaginisce I Rock and adhered green rhinestones for some bling. I used some Sheer ribbon for the bows. It's kind of over the top but I plan to use it for a gift for a good friend who will appreciate all the work I put into it.

Circle Challenge Week #7 Thank You Card & Color Challenge

This weeks entry has the requirement of 4 colors and it is to be a Thank you card. I used Basic Grey Green at Heart. I stitched around the base and then cut for circles and four flowers from George Cart and Thank you from Alphalicious Cart. I embossed the circles with the Circles embossing folder and the flowers as well. I used a stitched brad from Green at Heart for the center of the flower.
