Fall 2009 Layout

Yes, I'm two years behind, but this is the second to last layout I need in order to complete my son's 2009 scrapbook.  Solid cardstock is from SU! (So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, and Tangerine Tango). Ribbon is also from SU! (So Saffron).  I cut the title using the Robotz and Designer's Calendar Cricut Cartridges and the leaves I cut them using my Cuttlebug and a set of four dies I found on clearance at Joann.  Patterned paper is from DCWV Doodlin' Around Cardstock Pack.  Sorry for the bad quality of the picture but my camera wasn't charged and took it with with my iPhone.  Thanks for looking!!

My Ribbon Storage

Hi! After looking for a way on how to display my ribbon collection, I read in the Cricut MB that some members use full-size metallic dress forms to store their ribbon.  Last Friday I went to Pier 1 and found this small dress form perfect for my loose ribbon.  I don't have a lot of ribbon, so I bought the smallest dress form they carry.  It looks wonderful in my work-in-progress craftroom/office. I loooove it!!!! What do you think?

Mother's Day Card

This is the card I made for my mom.  The little boy is supposed to represent my son and the little girl is my niece.  My mom is supposed to be the one in the middle.  I made this card using the Cricut Car Decals cartridge and all the materials were from SU!  Thanks for looking!

Handmade Paper Flowers

Hello! Wow, it's been almost two months since my last post!! I've been pretty busy creating and haven't had the time to post all my creations. I signed up for a couple of swaps in the cricut message board plus had been part of the monthly cut RAK. For one of the swaps I had to make 25 handmade flowers and after watching a bunch of online tutorials on how to make flowers using a wide variety of materials, I decided to for some very beautiful paper flowers. The tutorial I used to make these flowers can be found at The Green Bean Crafterole which is one of my favorite blogs. I made them using SU! cardstock, SU! designers paper, and vellum from The Paper Source. Hope the ladies from the message board liked them.
