Happy Belated Birthday Pink Stamper! And Happy 7th Birthday Jadyn!

I made this card for my daughter Jadyn Yesterday was her 7th birthday. She is very into fashion and that is why this is not your typical 7 year olds birthday card. She loved it!

Card Recipe:
A-2 sized card
I used the Black Current premium paper stack from DCWV.
the base paper was cut the same size as the card and then punched with EK success Daisy Scallop border punch.
Forever Young Cricut cartridge model 9 cut at 4 3/4 inches.
pink cardstock cut at 2 3/4 by 5 inches.
gray cardstock 2 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches.
tag was something I had laying around.
I use a white gel pen for the writing.

I hope everyone likes the card it was a lot of fun making it. Again happy birthday to Robyn, Jadyn, and Karlee from Karlee Krafts her birthday was yesterday also.

My Pink ATG Came today!!!!

Actually it came yesterday but since I was at work all day yesterday I am just now getting to play with it. I absolutley love this thing. It works exactly how all you great you tube folks say it does in your tutorials. I held out until I fold the Pink ATG for the best price. My search ended on Ebay where I was able to purchase the ATG for $21, what a steal. Ebay is a great place to get cricut cartridges too! I recently purchased Forever Young for $22 I think. I have been having a lot of fun with that cartridge. So if you are on a tight budget and don't have very many cartridges like my self, I would diffently head over to Ebay and check it out. Here are some more pics of projects I have done recently......

This picture of the cute little purse is the project that came with the Forever Young cartridge. Stay tuned for some more very cute and girly projects. I am hosting a sleepover Birthday party for my daughter next week. She is turning 7 and requested some Princess decorations. I went on-line to and got a set of SVG files for only $5.99 that is just for a princess party. I will be making lots of crowns and purses, it sound be fun can't wait to post the pics. Thanks for stoping by my blog and have a great day!!!

Some of my creations

Here are some pictures of some of the stuff I have made with my Cricut. The thank you cards design is from My Pink Stamper tutorials. The party invitation is from and I used the Sure Cuts A lot software to cut the pieces out on my Cricut. A very cool program that allows you to download svg files and true type fonts from the internet and then cut them out on the Cricut. Many of these downloads are free, I paid 5.99 for the collection that the invite was from. A very good deal considering Cartriges can cost about $70.00 a piece.

My new Cricut Expression

Hi everyone, for christmas this year I got a Cricut Expression. I did a lot of research to try and find the best possible price. I finally decided to purchase through HSN. I got a great bundle with flexpay. So now I have this great crafting machine coming soon and I start trying to find videos on youtube about the cricut. Long story short there are a ton. not only have I been learning the basics about the cricut but have found some great resoureces for scrapbooking, cardmaking and more. So that is what brings me here today i want to share my experience learning the cricut and help others like myself that are new to the cricut community. I hope I can be helpful and spread my love of crafting and the Cricut!
