A Bridal Shower

Here are a few shots of a bridal shower my mom and I hosted in the fall. I cut the tags from the Sweetheart cartridge. I also used the cricut to decorate the towel cake as well.

Usin' the Tools

I had one of those days on Saturday where I was able to pull out and use a bunch of my scrapbooking tools. I enjoy days like that especially because it seems like many scrappers buy things just in case they will ever be needed. I was able to use my cricut, gypsy, a bunch of cartridges, new edge puncher, xyron X and 250 sticker maker, various ribbons, silent setter, brads, bling, my cuttlebug, and the list goes on.

I am in the process of making a baby book for my niece who is due next month! My older sister is expecting the first of the next generation of our family and we are beyond excited. She is not a huge pink fan so I am using more purples and lavenders for her book. I have to admit the Sugar and Spice page is probably my favorite, I just had to squeeze some pink in there some where! I clearly am still getting the hang of the picture thing as you can see my pages are in reverse order. At least you get the idea!

Cartridges used: New Arrival, Lyrical Letters, Mini Monograms, Tags Bags Boxes and More, George, and Gypsy Wonderings. I'm sure there are more and I just don't remember.

Happy Crafting!

Happy New Year!

I have joined the resolution club. I have this blog that is a great way to document my craftiness and I have not taken full advantage! I give a lot of the my creations away and this will help me to remember what I have done in the past for inspiration. I would like to update weekly.

I am going to be an Aunt at the end of February. My older sister is having a baby girl! I cannot put into words how excited I am. My younger sister, mom, and I threw a shower for her this past weekend. I of course went straight to work with the cricut! I purchased the New Arrival cartridge shortly after she announced her pregnancy. I put it to good use! I cut the tags from the chandelier at about 4 inches from the New Arrival cart. I then used the circle tag from Mini Monograms and tied with white ribbon.

I created the banner using Lyrical Letters at about 4.5 inches for the font. I then cut out scalloped circles and squares from Mini Monograms as well. I used brads to attach the letters together.

I made a simple diaper cake with ribbon as well.

Happy Crafting!
