Boy oh Boy

Boy oh boy there are baby boys popping out all over.  Another young couple just had a precious baby boy.  Here is the card I made for them.

I used the Artfully Sent Cartridge. I cut the base out of Lagoon cardstock, the interior is Daisy White and the onesies were cut out of the Snowhaven paper.   



It took me about 15 minutes to make this card, but it looks much more time consuming......LOVE this cartridge.  I stamped the sentiment using the SOTM stamp set, It's the Little Things.  I love how it turned out.  Now I just have to write my message inside and deliver the gift. 

Thanks for hopping by:)

A little Sparkle

I am going to be doing a craft show in December so I am making cards and items to sell.  Here is one card I made with my Explore.  


I love how it turned out.  I saw a similar card on FB and someone was asking how it could be made in Design Space so I had to try.  I used the Snowhaven paper, which I LOVE!!  The stamp set for the sentiment is from one the Art Philosophy bundle.

Heard You had a Bug!

I am loving my CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  Here is another fun pop-up card I whipped up.




When I saw this little bug I knew I wanted to make a card with it.  I thought it would be cute as a Get Well Card.  I used the alphabet stamp set that is included in the Artfully Sent Collection to stamp the sentiments.

Playing with Artfully Sent

I basically copied a card made by Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking... no shame here ;)  I love her work and have cased her stuff more than once!!!  The Artfully Sent Cartridge is amazing.  It makes these intricate  looking cards but they are so easy to make because the Cricut does all the work.

Play time with Artfully Sent

I finally made a bit of time to play with my Artfully Sent Cartridge.  I first cut a slider card....I used my Explore and boy does it cut great....

 The butterflies can be used on another project...if I can remember where I put them....I believe they may be buried somewhere on my desk..I so wish I were a neat crafter, but I am not ;)  The next cut also shows the  "scribble rose" card  I used the Paper Fundamentals in Thistle.   



This next card I copied a card made by Courtney Lane Designs.  



I love how this turned out and it only took me 15 minutes to make..that includes the cutting.  One tip though stamp your sentiments before putting the card together!! 

Would you like to get this cartridge for yourself....you will LOVE it....click here to order
