a Baby in a... Stocking?

Here's the story of my brother Stephen. He was due on Christmas, which was exciting. Except that he didn't really feel like waiting that long. 20 days preemie, he was so small he actually fit into his Christmas stocking! He doesn't anymore though and turned out to be quite the little hell raiser!

So this page is made up mostly of DCWV Cardstock and some random solid colors from my scrap stash. I used a few different SVG cuts on my Cricut from Miss Kate Cuttables and put the whole thing together with my Kelly Craft Get-It-Straight Laser Square!

O' Christmas Card, O' Christmas Card

I've been wanting to get more into coloring, I have all the stuff, I just don't do it much :( But today was the day. I think I did alright for my 2nd time?!

Happy Holidays

Here's another fun card from my Cricut Explore and SVG files! This is my 2nd or 3rd time playing with the explore. Overall I'm impressed, but I was a little disappointed today at its performance with textured card stock. It was having a really hard time cutting my sentiment, and I tried several settings. If you've found anything that works with with cricut & textured card stock, please do let me know.

Anywho, Here's what I did. First I cut out a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of white cardstock and stamped a falling snow background with assorted Hero Arts snowflake stamps. I then used a Spellbinders die to cut a window out ( I lined the die up with my Kelly Craft Get-It-Straight Laser Level to make sure it was centered well), which I then matted on a piece of cardstock cut out of a matching Spellbinders die one size larger. I then headed over to the trusty cricut to cut out this fun cup o cocoa and my sentiment.  I topped it off with some glittery fun on the whipped froth!

Sending Out Happy Thoughts!

Happy Wednesdays All! I wanted to create a bright and cherry card for a colleague who has fallen ill. I figured, what better than a shaker card. I wanted the emphasis on the gorgeous boquet of flowers, so I kept the rest of the card fairly simple. Embossed the background with a sizzix folder, used some embossing tape to glitter up the edges and then assembled the shaker.












I love this cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables, I've used it quite a few times, its the perfect bouquet! I embellished it with some Darice sticky back pearls.
