Graduation Images

I have been cutting and adhering image after image and I am LOVING it! I am so lucky to have meet some nice people through my blog and with Graduation just around the corner they have definitely kept me busy with my Cricut!
These are just a few snapshots of what I have been up to lately. And believe me, if I could send you a completed centerpiece by mail AND in one piece, I would do it...othewise, the next best thing are the images! =)

Happy Graduation to those who are celebrating in the days/weeks to come!!

Elegant Cakes Cartridge - Winner

Yippee...I am super excited to receive the cartridge I won from Provo Craft today! During the Cricut Cake reveal on HSN, Provo Craft was giving away prizes on the Message Board. We had such a fun time answering "Cake" related questions and watching the Cake in action on HSN. The cakes looked FANTASTIC!
So, here is the cartridge I won and although I didn't purchase a Cricut Cake that night, I am still happy that this cartridge can be used with my Expression!

The images are amazing and I think they will look great on a beautiful layout or card. This cartridge also has a Font and I can't wait to use it!
Thank you very much, Provo Craft...This is a FABULOUS addition to my cartridge library!!

Mother's Day Boxes

These cute boxes are simple to make and it's a good reason to use up your scrap paper!
Patterned paper is from Teresa Collins, rhinestone, stamp and punches are from Stampin Up.
Patterned paper is from Basic Grey and I made the flower out of tissue paper.
Another flower made from tissue paper, patterned paper from Stampin Up.
Each box holds 3 Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares.

Instructions on how to make these cute little boxes are on my February posts.

Happy Mother's Day, Ladies! Hope you all have a wonderful day. =)

Post It Note and Pen Holder ~ 4x4

I wanted to make some note holders for the 4x4 post it pads I had handy. Well, apparently I am not good with measurements! After 4 tries, I finally had a stencil that was a keeper!
I was able to use several of my scraps to finish decorating these holders.
I even added a slot and inserted these awesome pens made out of recyclable paper from this really cool company.
Stamps, paper and punches are all from Stampin Up.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! :)

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

Well, maybe NOT an actual chicken dinner, but something much much BETTER! (lol) My aluminum foil card was chosen as the winner of My Pink Stamper's Challenge #3. You MUST check out her blog to see all the AMAZING projects everyone had submitted. The talent is overwhelming! And the prize is 8 Cuttlebug Folders...Yippee!
So for this challenge we had to "Think outside the box." Do something that you would not normally do or add something fun and crazy. I used my Fleur De Lis cuttlebug folder to emboss a piece of aluminum foil and adhered it to the card with my ATG. I also used Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge to cut the image and adhered with dimensionals. The stamp and punch set are from Stampin Up.
A big thanks to everyone who has stopped by my blog and left such sweet comments. I appreciate every single one! :)
