{Baseball} Birthday Card

Hi crafters,

I added a new member to the craft family this week... the cricut explore has made a home in the craft loft! I've had the pleasure of tinkering around with it for a few projects this week!

Here's a quick card I made for a birthday this week.
I trimmed the home plate base to fit on a 6x5.5 card.
I am loving the free trial of the subscription and I will likely subscribe. It's just SO nice to scroll through and pick just about ANY image you want.  I also like picking a canvas to work on, it makes sizing the objects so easy.

I've included a link to the project just incase you want a quick and easy card...

{Walk in My Garden Tulip} Birthday Card

Hi Crafters,
Spring is coming! I promise!!
Here's a fun spring birthday card I made last week. I used the tulips boarder from Walk in my Garden. The grass is from Plantin Schoolbook. I popped up a few of the flowers with pop dots to add a bit of dimension before glueing it to the chevron cardstock. I made this card for one of my paper crafting bffs.
Once I glued the pennants to the cardstock I ran a few rows of stitches through them.

Spring, Where Art Thou? {Spring Wreath}

Hi Crafters,

My door needed a quick little update from my Valentine's wreath. I made this wreath with the Flower Shoppe, Martha Stewart Elegant Cake cartridge, and Birthday Bash cartridges.  I traced some pennants from the Birthday Bash cartridge on to fabric. I sewed close to the trace marks and then cut out the pennants with about 1/4 in allowance.

The butterfly cut I cut out the pink and green pieces as the blackout version. I cut the green slightly smaller than the purple layer. I attached all the layers to chipboard because it was going outside.
