Challenge #143 - Tag You're It!!

Hello crafty friends!

I am back participating in another challenge! This week's challenge at FCCB is to use a tag....well, that worked out perfectly for me because I am making tags to attach to some secret gifts for a swap at the Cricut message boards. Awesome, right!?! They needed to be simple tags because they will be attached to 14 gifts stuffed in a priority box so nothing too bulky will do. I am a fan of mass producing and the assembly line, I cut out 14 tags(love the Auto Fill feature!) using the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart in kraft cardstock then using some SU punches(scallop, 1 3/8, 1 1/4) punched out coordinated colors that matched the card I made. Unfortunately, I cannot show the card just yet as it is meant to be a surprise. :) The heart punch was from PTI and the pattern paper was EP Yours Truly.

Ready to assemble!
Completed tag!

Thanks for stopping by!

Get Organized!

Happy 2013!

I decided to participate in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week which is to get organized! I created  an "Inspiration" basket filled with Valentine/love theme items to help me when I sit down to craft  a Valentine card for my friends or family I have all what I need right in one organized place. In the basket there is stamps, paper, ribbon, inks, bling, etc. I cut the letters from Cricut's Plantin Schoolbook cartridge at 2" and added some heart bling.

Thanks for stopping by!


Here is a shot inside the basket!

I love mittens....

Here is another swap card that I made this past summer....yep, still have not found my craft mojo to do anything as of lately. So, onto this card! The mittens are from the cricut cartridge Jolly Hollidays which is one of my favorite Christmas cartridges. I cut the mittens out and adding some "fuzzies" with the cotton balls stretched over the cuffs. Finsihing it off with a sentiment stamped in Staz On chocolate. It is a simple card but I love simple cards.

Hope everyone has a happy Columbus Day weekend!

Tag swap.....

Hi Blogland. Back in the summer I was in a monthly swap and one month we swapped Holiday Tags. Above are the 4 that I created. Rudolph was cut from Doodlecharms, the tree was cut from Hello Kitty, and the snowflake one was cut from......hmmmm....I am at a complete blank.........still at a blank........ugghh...I got nothing. OHHHHH...A Child's Year.....awww much better. Last but not least the red flowers were cut with my friend the cuttlebug. It was a fun swap while it lasted but now it is over.

So, today's post short and sweet.....and to the point.

Crafty Hugs to all!

Challenge Fun!


I am so seriously late but I just had to participate in this week Designed2delight challenge! It is a fun progressive challenge-check out their blog for all the fun details.

Right to my card-base of kraft cardstock with image colored using my SU pencils, baby oil, and fantastix pens mounted on brown cardstock. I tied a satin chocolate brown ribbon and I trimmed the ends and apparently I just could not stop! Yikes! The stamp is from Studio $ stamps. :)

Hope you have a wonderful evening!
