Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge "Mini Monsters"

Scrappy Moms Stamps challenge is "Mini Monsters". I just love this cartridge and just the other week I was lucky enough to win a Scrappy Moms Clear Stamp Set that goes with this cartridge Soooo well. Here's my card:

A hidden card...

And then the inside:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: Gray, Three Shades of Purple, White, Black and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Mini Monsters Mummy, page 35 (Base, Layer 1 Base, Layer 1 Shift, Layer 2 Base, Layer 2 Shift, Card Base and Base Shadow)
Cricut Design Studio
Scrappy Moms Clear Stamps "Jeepers Creepers", "Boo" and "You've been Boo'd"
Green Glitter Ribbon
Violet and Dark Purple Pigment Ink

I started with a piece of double sided patterned paper 4 1/4" x 11". I scored it at 1 1/2" and at 7".  These are the fold lines. I used the pigment ink on the mummy's strips and underneath to give a little more dimension. 

I love these new stamps and can't wait to use them again.

Frankly...Three Challenges

I made this card for Three Challenges...Cardz TV - Cricut Cardz Challenge "Things That Go Bump In The Night", CropStop " Let's Block It Out!" and Birthday Sundaes "Who's Got The Button? Birthday Card".
Here is my card:

and the inside:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: Orange, Gray, Green, Black, Brown, Metallic Silver and Three Different Patterned Papers
Cricut Cartridge Mini Monsters It's Alive, page 44 (Base, Layer 1 Base and Shift Layer 2 Base and Base Shadow)
Scrappy Moms Clear Stamps (Halloween) "Frankly, You're The Best!"
Inkadinkado Thinking of You Clear Stamps, All Occasions "Happy Birthday"
Googly Eyes, Two
Orange Button
Le Plume II, Brown
Mounting Tape

The Scrappy Moms Stamp that I used was from a set that I won about a week ago. I was so excited when I received the news. I couldn't wait to use one. Frankly, (lol) I think the inspiration started there.
I mounted Frankenstein and the Pumpkin (button) with a single layer of mounting tape and the sign with a double layer.

Been on "vacation" for the last two weeks...My husband and I went to Ocean City, Maryland for a few days. This was our view from our hotel room:

Isn't that beautiful? We went to sleep with the sound of the ocean...aahhh, Can I go back?
One day we took our granddaughter with our son to the Philadelphia Zoo. We (my husband and I) visited Historic Smithville in New Jersey. We were able to go out to dinner with some friends on one night and family on another. We also had to get my CR-V's air conditioning fixed (the compressor broke), wait for the repairman for my new dishwasher to come and we bought a new mattress. We were hoping to get some things done around the house and maybe to be able to go somewhere else for a few days, however, the weather didn't want to cooperate and my husband ended up with a nasty cold. We also celebrated our anniversary. I get to return to work on Monday. My husband goes back on Thursday. It always goes by too fast.

Thanks for stopping by...please leave a comment (I look forward to reading them)

Have a wonderful week....

Flash Cards for Gianna

I thought I would make some double duty Flash Cards for my Granddaughter, Gianna.
On one side of the card is the number, the number word and the number of objects it represents. On the back of each card is the color word of that card.

Finished Cards: 4 1/2" x 6"

Cardstock: White, Black, Tan, Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Pink and Brown
Cricut Cartridge ZooBalloo Numbers, Number Words and Letters for Color Words
Cricut Design Studio (To Weld Letters Together)
Various Punches
Contact Paper
Hole Punch
Book Ring

After I placed contact paper on both sides, I ran it through my Big Kick to try to seal it better. If I were to do these cards again, I would change a few things...
1. I would use laminating sheets rather than contact paper.
2. I would use separate pieces of paper for each this way the opposite side would not show through.

I still like the way they turned out. I hope Gianna likes them too.

Thanks for stopping by...I would love for you to leave a comment.

Fantabulous Cricut "A Pirate's Life"

I had a fun time with this Fantabulous Cricut challenge..."A Pirate's Life" (Make a pirate themed project). Well, I always think of Treasure Chests when I think of pirates, don't you? So that is what I made...

The back:

And when you open it:

Now you might think that it is completely filled with gold doubloons (chocolate) and jewels, but...

You would be wrong! There's a false floor and if you pick up the gold band (ribbon)...

There are more treasures underneath.

I hope you were able to see that it also has a place for a lock on the front too...

This would be great for a Pirate themed party. You could make it smaller and use it as favor boxes for each of your pirate guests.

Finished Chest: 4 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 5 "

Cardstock: Black, White and Gold
Cricut Cartridge Sweet Tooth Boxes Toolbox (Toolbox, Toolbox Layer 1, Toolbox Layer 2 and Toolbox Layer 3)
Cricut Cartridge Indie Art Skull and Cross Bones, 12th Button
Cricut Design Studio
Queen and Co Pearls Nightfall
Gold Ribbon
Black Pigment Ink (rubbed on the gold and skull to make them look tarnished and old)

For the inside box, I cut the Toolbox Layer 1 twice without the "gear shape" and added a scrap of black cardstock to the bottom for a finished look. I also cut the inner box 1/4" smaller. I cut strips of Gold cardstock at 1/2" and glued them in place around the box.

Hope you liked this was really so much fun to make.

Have a great week...

Happy Birthday Margie

I made this card for my husband's Aunt Margie. Her birthday was last week. I also made her a cake (I forgot to take a picture of that). We ( Margie, myself, my friend and neighbor Janet and Margie's friend Thea) went out for a delicious late lunch/early dinner at Olive Garden. We then went back to Margie's house and joined more of Margie's friends and ate cake.

I also made this for two challenges (CropStop and The Paper Variety) but didn't get a chance to post it in time.

Cardstock: White, Green and Four Different Patterned Papers

Grandparents Day is on Sunday. Hooray for Grandparents! I know how much mine meant to me. (I hope that my Granddaughter, Gianna, will feel the same about my husband and myself). Anyway, that is the challenge this week at Cricut 360.

I made a card for Gianna to give to her Pop Pop (my husband). I hope he likes it...

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge "Back To School"

It's back to school time! That's what Fantabulous Cricut has for a challenge this week. (Use your ABC's and 123's on your project). I had a really hard time with this one...and I'm not sure why. I then thought about my granddaughter, Gianna, and that in a few years she will be starting school. So, I thought I would make a layout for her first day of Kindergarten. Here it is:

I thought this would look alittle more "girly" instead of using the usual primary colors.

Finished Layout: 12" x 12"

Cardstock: Two Shades of Pink, Four Shades of Purple, Silver and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Locker Talk Scissors, page 35 (Base and Layers Base), Crayon 1, page 36 (Base and Layers Base), Kindergarten, page 72 (Shift Base and Layers Shift)
Cricut Cartridge George and Basic Shapes "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" Various Pages

Can't believe it's Labor Day. Where did the summer go? I don't feel like I even had a summer because of work. I got down to the shore only a couple times this year. I love sitting on the beach and watching the waves. Maybe next summer will be better...

Have a great Labor Day...
