Nate's ABCs

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

I can't wait to play with Elegant Edges this weekend...I think I'm going to use it for my April's Scrapbook Challenge Project....I keep flipping through the manual and I can't wait to play with it.

Nate's ABC's is such a cute cartridge. I got this a while back and I knew as soon as I got it I had to make something with those adorable rain boots. I can't help it they make me smile.

Today's card is a 4-1/4"x4-1/4" card that will work in a standard A2 envelope. I love making this size card.

Supplies: Cricut Expression, Cricut Gypsy, Nate's ABCs Cricut Cartridge, Cardstock, Fine Linen, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado (Paper Trey Ink), Pattern Paper: Gertie 6x6 Paper Pad (My Minds Eve); Vintage Twine (My Craft Spot), Distress Ink: Vintage Photo, Adhesive, ATG Gun, Dimensionals (Stampin' Up!) Stamp,  Paper Trey Ink

Hope you have a great day...

Hugs and happy crafting,

Mini Album w/your Cricut #4

Hi Everyone,
So is everyone caught up on their mini album so far?

Before we get started...I thought I would share something really cool...Two of my fabulous followers who went on over to Cricut for Beginners the other day when I posted about their Birthday Bash Cartridge giveaway also won cartridges from me :) courtesy of Custom Crops. Be sure to check out Cricut for Beginners website. Lots of great info and a wonderful source for all you new Cricut owners.

Cricut for Beginners

Congrats to Penny and Jana....I hope you enjoy the Birthday Bash cartridge as much as I do....You can find the post with the winners HERE...

So are you ready for the next page to our mini album...

OK I had a small problem with the pictures. I lost them....Have no clue where they went. I uploaded them, used them at the end of the video and they disappeared. Very strange...

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend....
Hugs and happy crafting

Mini Album w/your Cricut Series-Episode #1

Hi Everyone,
I hope you had a great weekend.  I was able to spend some time in my room Sunday afternoon and worked on the mini. I'm loving how it's coming out so far. I still have a page to work on and binding, but I'll get that done during the week. I can't believe how much I got done yesterday in a short amount of time. It just came together. I have lots of video editing to do :)

I hope you all enjoy the series. Today we will be working on cutting, covering and binding our mini album.

If you missed the video on Friday that went over some of supplies click HERE.  Tomorrow we'll be working the first pages...

Have a great day...I hope tonight I'll make up some sleep, daylight savings time got me good this year...

Mini Album w/your Cricut Series (Supplies)

Hi Everyone,
Today starts the mini album w/your Cricut Series. We are going to make a mini from start to finish. I'm not sure how many videos it will be, but we'll keep going until we're done....

First I filmed the pages and how to cut/cover etc. then decided that a supply video for today would be a better way to go so you can get your supplies ready this weekend and be ready for Monday.

Here is the supplies video...

Have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend...

Update and Craft room pictures

Hi Everyone,
Thought I would share a few things today...

1. As you know I posted yesterday that my craft room is a work in progress. Thought I would share a few before pictures...I'll share after pictures when I'm officially done with my room...

These are the cubes that I took out. 
Scott is using them for his CD collection now. 

These are the paper cubes. I was keeping my collections in these but went through them and sorted out the older collections and then moved the newer ones to a basket. 
The rest of my pattern paper and paper pads are in my closet now.

Speaking of the closet...More cubes. 
These are gone too and we put up shelving. Still a work on progress but I'm getting there

2. Gypsy Update. There is an update for the Gypsy. This update is pretty big and includes a new app for the Imagine, I haven't updated mine yet.  Use the Cricut Synch software to update and then you can link your cartridges...

3.  For those that have the Imagine I would love to hear your thoughts? Do you like it? I'm still holding off and getting the Cricut2 but I might someday consider it.

4. What do you think for March we do a mini album series with the Cricut and Gypsy instead of a cartridge series. I really want to make a mini with the Blast off! Bo Bunny collection of Ethan when he was a baby? What do you guys think?

OK off to work, it's a long day for me today. Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Generations Crafting Haul

Hi Everyone,
I'm so so sorry that I haven't had any real projects for you lately. I promise to get back on track. I've been super busy on a pretty big project (I'll share that with you soon) and the urge struck me this past weekend to start a craft room re-do (I'll share that in a few weeks). Really my plan was to just clean out my closet and put up shelving and it turned into much more that that...New cabinets, a new room layout, and I even took out all my JetMax cubes (yes I did, but don't worry they went to good use in my attic to store my other  non-scrapbooking craft stuff). So with all that, work, and family I've had little time to get much crafting done...

I don't really like to do many haul videos, but besides sharing what I love to do, I also like to share what I find every once in a while...

Here are some goodies I picked up from Generations Crafting. If you haven't checked them out yet, you must head on over...Floren (store owner) is so super sweet.

Here is a video of my goodies..

Basic Grey Hopscotch Collection
Bo Bunny Blast Off
Bo Bunny Vicki B
Bo Bunny Timepieces 
Bo Bunny Gabrielle
Prima Floret
Pima Fitzroy
Prima Reflections

Have a great Monday...
