Baby items!

Gift card.  Measures about 3in by 3 in.  New Arrivals Cartridge was used on the Cricut Imagine.  
Thank you card set for Beth.  She loves to write thank you notes and I made a set of 16 plus a bag for them.  The card below was done using the Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails Cartridge.

The bag was formed from a greeting card envelope that was scored on my Scor-Pal and folded into a bag.  The front and back were covered with cardstock that matched the Thank You cards.  Large Eyelets and ribbon completed the bag.

Valentine Cards!

OK, I couldn't post these until I gave them to my sweet daughters and their hubbies. 
For Vanessa & Star.  Cut with the Pagoda Cartridge.  The red background paper is embossed with a cherry blossoms folder.  The symbols are printed & cut using the Cricut Imagine on a pearlized white cardstock.

For Beth & Charles who are expecting their first baby soon.  The stamp is from Stampabella and looks so much like them!  The heart and backing for it were cut on the Cricut Expression. 

Team Meeting Project #2

Be Lifted from The Angel Company.  Light blue paper was embossed and then sanded to reveal the white core.  White scrappers floss tied with bright ribbons completes the kite's tail.

Team Meeting Project #1

This card used Cup of Love T-3411 for the Tea Cup and saying, Edge Designs T-3002 for the "table top" under the cup, and Robyn Download paper from The Angel Company.  To access the downloadable paper: .

More Cards!

Since we've been frozen in here in the Dallas area, I have had lots of time to craft!  Not all of these were done on my "snow days", but this is the first time I've had a chance to post them.  I have others, but I can't show them yet!  Some are for my oldest daughter's baby shower and then there are Valentines for my girls and their hubbies.  I'll post them after they've received them.  Anyway, these are the cards that I CAN post.
 Castle is from Wrap-it-up and was layered on a purchased blank card.  The "5" is from my sticker stash.
The Seal is from Paper Dolls for Everyday.  The stand is from a shape in George.  Now I own Birthday Bash that also has a performing seal.  The sticker in the middle of the ball is from my stash.  The seal was cut and colored on the Cricut Imagine.  The card base is from Cricut Imagine More's cardstock options.  I told the machine that my cardstock size was 6" by 12".  I set the machine to print only and did some maneuvers to get the print to move to the right side of the cardstock.  If anyone is interested, I'll try my hand at doing a video to show how I did it.

 This was a really easy card made using The Cricut Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I LOVE this one for birthday cards,
Another quick easy card using The Cricut Imagine More Cards cartridge.  The "Happy Anniversary" is from a sheet of stickers that I picked up at a craft show last summer.

Some Valentine Cards for Guys!

One of the most difficult things for me to work on are cards for guys!  Now, make that a Valentine Card for a guy.  These are inspired by my son-in-law and Chinese New Year which was yesterday.  The Cricut
Cartridge used was Pagoda and it was cut on the Cricut Imagine.  The Black base is from The Angel Company (V215 for 8 1/2 x 12 or V246 for 12 x 12).  Layered over it was soft red from my stash that I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder with Cherry Blossoms.  The base of the tag is gold metallic cardstock (from a local paper supplier, but it is like Stampin' Up's) and the upper portion of the tag is using Aspire Petallics Beargrass which is a beautiful Pearl White.  I used the Cricut Imagine More cartridge to cut and color the white pearl cardstock with a distressed red.  The black Scrapper's Floss on the tag and card is from The Angel Company F-912.  The Happy Valentine's Day is from My Sentiment's Exactly and it stamped on the gold cardstock with Palette Ink Noir.  The card is an A6 (4 x 6) size.

 This card is an A2 size (4.25 x 5.5) and is essentially the same except it does not have the Scrapper's Floss accents.
I was able to fit 8 of the gold tag bottoms and 8 of the tag tops onto an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock.  I made 3 of the larger cards and 3 of the smaller ones.  That left two of the tags left.  I made them into actual tags by layering them onto black cardstock tags cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  I cut this on my Cricut Expression.  I added a Black Extra Large Eyelet from We R Memory Keepers using my Crop-a-dile from The Angel Company (K-100).  The black tulle ties are from my stash.
If you are interested, these cards are for sale.  The A6 for $5 and the A2 for $4.  Please email me and I will get them out to you.
