I love making these type of cards because they allow me to have more depth in the card. I love the santa on the scandanavian christmas cards cart. He's so sweet and I made him a bit bashful with his blushing and eyebrows. I also love to use stickers. I hear so many people say they stop using stickers after they get a cricut. I for one think they compliment each other, especially the really pretty 3D ones.TFL!

Hi everyone! I'm back with another card! I'm so happy to be able to get to make cards again, I was always so busy with classes I couldn't create much. But now classes are over for a month! So I can get to making Christmas Cards and other projects. Well, today I wanted to try out the Sidestep card. I had never tried it, so when I received my Imagine Snow Angel Cart today I got to making this. I posted two pics because in one your can see some details better but the other is brighter. TFL!

I've been wanting to make a card like this for a quite some time. So I finally took the time to make it. This one is for my uncle who is a ballet instructor and former performer. I love making personalized cards and I thought he would get a kick out of something like this. I had some difficulty taking a picture of this card because of how sunny it is outside and the glare that was showing up. But I did the best I could. TFL!

I love my imagine so much I don't want to stop using it! Here's another christmas card I made today. It's Owl's christmas Party and boy is she happy. I made this card is for my cousin's 8 year old daughter, I thought she would like a fun christmas card as opposed to a traditional card. TFL!
Best Friends(Comfy chair)
Enjoy the Seasons(Cat and Dog at window)

I made this let it snow card but it was one of those cards that gives you so many troubles. I had to lift things up, adhere them back down somewhere else. But I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I used my new Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge which I got for 10.49 off of ebay:) And it has the cutest images for all year round!

I made this card for my 7 yo nephew. My sister and her family moved to North Carolina this year and this will be there first christmas not in Florida. So I thought my nephew would like this Wintery yet Summery scene card for christmas. I used my gypsy to make this card and my Imagine. I love how I can add patterns to my original cricut cuts! TFL!

I got the Imagine last night at Walmart for Black Friday and I'm loving it already! It just makes making cards so much easier than the way I used to do it.I just assembled it and calibrated it and made this card. I used the Imagine More Cart for the Piano, Industrial Glow for the scalloped square gear paper, and Winter Frolic for the tree. I printed the tree layers and I love that I don't have to color all the pieces like I used to. The rest of the pieces are from a new Recollections paper pad and stickers are from K&Co.

I'm sorry it feels like it's been a really long time since I last posted and made something! College has been more stressful than I thought but classes are slowing down a bit and I found some time to make a card. Thanks for looking!

I just love the Halloween and Fall Stack from DCWV this year! I think I love every single page. I also have a ton of halloween embellishments from previous years so I'm trying to use a lot of them. I also used my new TGF set Showtime to make it, because I think she looks so sweet and not the typical halloween or fall image.TFL!

For some reason I love making Spooky Halloween more than cutesy halloween stuff. So for this card I used a bunch of new stuff I got at Joanns and some of my forgotten older stuff. TFL!

I just adore this stamp set from the greeting farm, it's called Showtime and it goes perfectly with my new cricut cart, Carousel. Which was on sale at Walmart for 20 bucks and I'm so glad I got it because it has the greatest images and a wonderful font. Anyways I've always loved the color combo yellow,red black and white so I paired up those colors and used it for the MM Challenge at TGF. TFL!

My cousin's birthday is coming up, October 8th(which is my bday too except I was born a year later:) and I had to make him a card. I was stumped as what to make because guy cards are just so hard. But, I used the MM Challenge as inspiration and used that layout for the card and the Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend paper. Also used the greeting farm My Guy Ian stamp and I thought it was perfect for this card

I did use mostly white for this card but I couldn't help adding a touch of color. Was also able to use some of my old white chipboard pieces. The TGF Stamps I used were Bree and wishing Tree for the envelopes. The house is a unity stamp called Pixie Lane.TFL!

Many of you may not have not known but I love reading and literature. Since I was a little girl I've loved to read and am now majoring in English. Well I also love to craft so when I saw this cute stamp of this lady reading by the greeting farm called Victorian Reader I just had to get it. I've made a little scene where the circles are her imagination of the book. This is also for this weeks Farm Fresh Challenge- Hot and Cold!I hope that shows on the card.TFL!

So I was unable to keep crafting in my dorm. Without all of my embellishments and what not I feel restricted, not only that but I just don't seem to have the time. But I do have time and stuff when I come back home for the weekends! Here are my 3 cards for The Greeting Farm Challenges for this week. Tomorrow I will be making some cards with some of my new Cricut Carts so stay tuned for that!TFL!

So tomorrow I'm moving out of my house and into my dorm! I'm really excited but nervous at the same time. I am able to bring one box of crafting supplies but won't be able to bring my cricut which sucks.:( But I am able to bring most of my stamps, some papers and stickers. So I hope to keep posting here. But I am keeping my priorities in place, classes and studying come first. But crafting will be another priority since it keeps me sane. I'll try to post a pic of my crafty dorm this weekend:)

Many of you may not have known but I have quite the crafty family. My aunt made me this cake for graduation. She brought it over today and wasn't able to make it before because she was real busy. But I didn't mind at all. She even used my school colors and put a book with my major on it.:) She makes the prettiest cakes don't you think? I think I'm really blessed to have such a crafty family. My mom and other aunt do crochet and knitting and my Sister in Law makes party favors. Needless to say we all love a nice trip to Michaels!:)TFL!

I finally got to make last weeks farm fresh challenge card from The greeting Farm. This week was so hectic! I went to the Freshman Orientation for college and was bombarded by clubs, sororities and motivational speakers. By the time I got back home I just wanted to relax. I was finally able to sit down and make a card. I used my new WRMK Sew Easy to do some stitching and the TGF Roll Call Kit(Nahla). TFL!

I have been waiting to get Picturesque since what feels like the beginning of time! I remember they used to sell on ebay for more than 100 dollars and I was never going to pay that much for a cart! So, Boy was I happy when I won it off ebay for about 19 dollars. I linked it to my gypsy and made this card. I used the cart for the clock and the decorative piece next to the stamp. I used some key charms from Walmart and my TGF stamp Princess Collection 3 and presto finished the card

I love making scene cards because they allow me to escape for just a moment to whatever place I'd like. I received a new stamp yesterday TGF Travel Anya and she looked so business like it gave me this idea. I'm so happy it came out the way I pictured it! I didn't use any cricut on this one because I wanted to use up some of my forgotten embellishments. I also practed a bit of drawing with the boardwalk, buildings and "road to paradise"; I can't draw for the life of me but this was really simple to draw so I went for it.

This fall I'm going off to college and my aunt gave me this mini fridge to get started on my dorm stuff. I love the mini fridge but wanted to give it my own spin. I used the colors from my comforter(2nd pic) and made this little scene. So I used the TGF Fly Away Set, an alphabet set(for my name) and a strip of green paper(grass). I laminated all the pieces with my Yourstory so when I would adhere them to the fridge they could easily be taken off. I thought this would work to use it for the TGF Throwback ABC challenge so this is also my entry for that challenge.TFL!
