Down to business...I've decided to work with the Throwback Thursday challenge on Emma's site http://www.creativetimeforme.com/. She is "Sneek Peeking" her newest stamp & die releases this week. The stamps & dies will be available for purchase this Friday...they really are great stamps, wish I could get ahold of ALL of them!
For this weeks challenge, I have a new niece and hopefully we will get to visit her later this week...which means I need a baby card! Perfect for a "kid friendly" challenge! I used the B is for Boy cartridge on this one, just love that onsie! Cartridges used: Smiley (card base), George (circle), B is for Boy (onsie & duck)

I would absolutely LOVE to be a part of Emma's design team --what a fantastic opportunity this would be!!! Emma has been an inspiration to me and my crafting! Before I even had a Gypsy, I was always watching her videos, so when I purchased mine I knew how to use it as soon as I took it out of the package. She has a fantastic line of stamps & dies....I wish I could pick up all of them, if only my budget allowed!! I decided to showcase the Whimsical Calendar Days set for my entry. This is such a fun set!!!

Thought this would be a fun challenge, working with the frog on the Create A Critter cartridge.
I just love all these animals on this cartridge! I decided to make little cards to send with my Kindergartener to school on days of her classmates birthdays. She helped me make the little frogs & then we added a little treat to each card for the classmates special day. She will be signing all the little froggy cards too. Love how they turned out.

For this challenge we just needed to create a *new* birthday card. I went super simple with these cute flip-flops from the Life's a Beach cartridge paired up with some perfect funky fibers. I like to make cards using the hybrid method of mixing both printed material along with the handcrafted pieces. This makes making multiple cards a sinch, these I went ahead & put together 6 in no time!

Check out their fun challenges and great inspiration at http://birthdaysundaes.blogspot.com/
The color challenge this week is pinks, greens & white. The photo doesn't quite do it justice, the colors really do coordinate much better in person than they do here....just a very simple and quick card. Actually put together 5 of these in no time. Love to have extras on hand!
Have a great day!

While the kids are away, my goal is to play...a little bit each day. This is something that I do each year for the kids schoolwork, that I intend to keep, to showcase in their school scrapbook albums. It is a pocket that I created using the Cricut and my favorite "school" font, Mickey Font. I cut out the word schoolwork and use the negative as the pocket, placing a coordinating color behind the negative to show through. Then I use tacky tape to hold the pocket onto the background paper. I usually only put about 10 of my favorite worksheets for the year in here.
I'm submitting this page for the Cricut 360 --Back to school challenge. Check out the great website here http://cricut360.blogspot.com/

This weeks challenge at http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ is to pull out the Wild Card or Just Because cartridges and use a stamped sentiment. I only have Wild Card, so...here's what I came up with. I needed a gift card holder for a Thank You & found this one. I'm happy with how it turned out.
Off to get more done....starting a "normal routine" again here. I've pretty much had my kiddos home for the last 2 weeks...love them, but....it was time to go back to school before they ended up home longer for recovery from hurting each other ;) Really --I do believe CABIN FEVER has hit at our house!
Cricut Cartridges used: Create a Critter (Butterfly), Accent Essentials (swirl)

Over Halloween we took our first trip to Walt Disney World and we had a fantastic time. Of course for the trip I had to create an autograph book for the kids to collect their favorite (or any that came along) character autographs.I am including my original creation in which I was completely thrilled with and was well received by many of the talking characters. Hope you like!
Cricut Cartridges Used: George Basic (rectangles), Disney Mickey Font (font and Mickey ears). I also used the Gypsy to weld letters together and to the rectangle.
