Happy New Year/Happy Birthday To Me!

I haven't posted here in a while, but I have been creating a lot of Christmas stuff. Most of the things that I created are at work or I have given away already. Once I bring the items home I will take pictures and post them here. I just want to wish everyone a Happy Healthy New Year.

I made this bag for the recipient to store the other cards that she receive. I used Forever Young and Ribbon & Rossettes cart. The bag is made from two 12 x 12 sheets of cardstock. Recently, I attended a Cricut Circle meet in Greensville, SC and a fellow Cirlet gave us a quick demo on how to make this bag. I tweeked it just a little bit. TFL.

Retirement Card

Happy Thanksgiving! I started making this card around 10:00 pm last night and I finished it this morning. It is a retirement card for one of my co-workers. There is a get together scheduled for her retirement and I will be assisting with some of the decorations so you may see more items with this color scheme. I already have an idea in my head for a bag for her "well wishes/retirement" cards to go in. I used Ribbons & Rosettes and Forever Young Cricut Carts. The fancy cut at the top of the card is a Spellbinders die and the rest of the cuts are from Sizzix. I used by Ribbon Easy for the first time and I love the end result. TFL.

Etched Beer Mugs

These are beer mugs that I etched for a team that I'm a member of at work. We will be having a retreat next week and I wanted to make something for every team member. I have the name of our team on the front and personalized the back with each member's first name. Twenty five glasses in all. I hope they like them.

Give Thanks Banner

It's been a while since I posted. Today I have two items that I created for a Thanksgiving meal that we had this past Thursday at my job. I made a lot of other items but I gave them away after the dinner before I had a chance to take pictures. I used Cricut carts Birthday Bash and Hannah Montana (I think) for the banner. The rose is a Sizzix Big Shot Pro die. The tile was made using Sure Cuts A Lot and the same BSP die. I saw the sentiment on a tile on a website somewhere, but don't remember where. TFL.

Christmas Tags

I just finished making my Christmas tags for the Cricut Circle Meet in Greenville, SC. Making them took up most of my weekend. I also included a picture of my calling cards for the meet. My Cricut Imagine was instrumental in creating my tags and cards it is truly a time saver. I used George Basic Shapes, Enjoy The Season, Snow Angel and Imagine More Cards. I also used my Bigshot and the Top Note die. TFL.

Vinyl Home Decor

I have been busy decorating my house with vinyl designs. I really love SCAL because it allows you to personalize items in a beautiful way. I have over 175 carts which I love for papercrafting, but my choice for vinyl is SCAL. Most of the designs I used in these projects are from My and some are from people who shared their beautiful creations on the web. TFL.


My MIL asked me to decorate a few chargers for her kitchen so I went to purchaesd the designs and added them to the chargers for her. TFL.

Monogram Gift Bag

Tommorrow is the day......for Melissa's going away event at my job. I decorated this gift bag using SCAL and the Regal Font which is a free font, but I needed it split in half so I purchased the file from Denise Hill ( I will add a bow and a few embellishments later. TFL.

Altered Items

After making "candy dishes" for my co-worker and my DD, I decided to make one for my self. I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately and one of the pictures that I pinned to my board was one of a cookie sheet repurposed as a message board. That seemed like a really cool idea that I had to try. I used Cricut Carts: Sophie and Flower shop and Cricut Imagine Vintage papers for the printed papers. I used Quickkutz, Cheryl Lynn Design and Sizzix dies also. I love the way it came out. TFL.

Final "Going Away" Items

This should conclude all of the decor that I'm making for my coworker's going away event at my job. I mostly used Cricut Carts like Flower Shoppe, Birthday Bash, Art Philosophy and Recess. I did use a few punches and metal dies. I will string the banner closer to the date. TFL.

More Baby Items

I decided to make more items for my Beautician's Grandson. The image on the bib is from an online coloring page which was easily traced in SCAL. The font is Walt Disney. I found the tote at Wally World for $4.00 and decided to use it as a gift box for the items that I bought for him. So he has a a couple of outfits, soft shoes, regular & personalized bibs and a baby wipe case in the tote. The tote can also be use to store his clothing or toys or whatever his mommy wants to put in it. The train is an SVG from My Vinyl Designer. TFL.


My beautician's daughter just give birth to a baby boy earlier this week and I decided to personalize a few things for him. I used Cricut Boys Will Be Boys cart for the truck and CTMH Art Philosophy cart for his name. TFL.
