54 Button Layout with Dotty

Okay, if you haven't made a layout with 54 (or more!) buttons, then you MUST! What a thrill to glue dot each of these suckers down! I have been wanting to do a layout with buttons for a while now, and the Dotty paper pack was a perfect marriage! This layout is ALL ready for my birthday NEXT month! Hope you like it.

Mother's Day is coming!

Have you made your mom/mom-in-law a card yet? I woke up this am to a beautiful sunny spring day and decided to get started on mine. Flowers always makes a mom smile, so this card made with LUCY paper pack and the AWESOME bling did the trick!

Dotty Layout with the April Stamp of The Month

So this layout is made with the Dotty for you paper pack (can you tell I am loving it?). I will be adding our pictures from our recent trip to Bass Lake/Yosemite.

Graduation Card using Cricut AP shapes

My cousin is graduating from high school, so I created a owl GRAD card using images from the CTMH Cricut AP cartridge. I cut the wings with the half shaped scallop at 3" and cut in half. The body is the funky shape on the bottom row (6 in from the left) at 3". I cut the edges of that shape to make the owl "horns"- The grad hat is the square shape on the maple leaf button cut at 1", the eyes are 1/2" circles. I cut the feet/nose and tassel by hand. I think OWL's are silly, and hope our next cartridge has one!
I was inspired by a fellow consultants in making these cards-the lantern card idea was from another consultant (name unknown) and Lisa Stenz made a pink polka dot AMAZING card, I changed it up to yellow.(can't take too much credit here!) LOVE the colorful cards. My mom recently came down with a case of the shingles, so I have been sending her cards, and like the cheery happy ones!
