Other Cakes

I haven't had much time to get any cards or scrapbook layouts done lately, but I have been doing a few cakes. Here are a couple more I've made in the last month.

The Accordian

In tribute to my father-in-laws long time passion of playing the accordian it seemed only obvious that I make him a cake for his 80th birthday. There are a few touch up's to do yet, but It's mostly done and I needed a break!

Day 3 Give-A-Way!

So "Cow are you?"..
I think this is now my favorite posting on my blog, first because I just love this stamp from Joy's Life Lot's of Pun Stamps, second because it's my first Give-A-Way! YEAH!

I used Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge (I think this is my favorite cartridge right now) for the Cow and Everyday Paper Doll Cartridge for the barn. The card measures roughly 6"x6" and the cow was cut at 3". I did have to get creative to make the layers for the barn - thanks Gypsy. Added a little scrap ribbon and some black ink marks around the roof line. Fun Fun! The best part of it all - I used all scraps!

And Now For a Wonderful Opportunity for you!
Super Joy is sponsoring a Give-A-Way right here on my Blog. All you need to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this posting. Simple Right? Winner will be announced on Monday, August 2nd! *Remember to leave a way for me to contact you*

Office in Progress

I'm in the process of reorganizing,
painting and using some vinyl in my
office/scrapbook room. It's all
starting to come together.

I still need trim around my
window and some painting
touch ups. I'm having a little
too much fun with Vinyl.. Need
to get another color before
I add any more! Maybe Hot
pink? Who knows what I'll
come up with next.

After I'm done with this project I plan to get busy and get some more scrapbooking done. Felt like I needed a face lift on my room to get some creativity back. Hope it helps!

Face Lift for my Scrapbook Room!

Crazy Lady I am I decided at 3:00 this afternoon to paint my scrapbook room to Brighten it up.. YIKES - Bright is an understatement.. I've been trying to figure out for a while what color to do and it just came to me today - Pictures to come!! I'm so excited to share it with you all!

Another Design for Joy's Life!

Here is another card I designed using Stamps from Joy's Life - LOT'S OF PUN Stamps.

I made this card for my Nephew's Birthday - he's 10 and it's hard to make a card for that age. Out of the "cute" animals - not big enough for "guy" stuff. It ended up being the perfect card for him as he was outfitted with all the safety equipment for skateboarding!

I started this card with Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls to
cut the skateboard, road & clouds.
I used standard card stock for everything. I then jumped to George &
Basic Shapes for the stars cut at 2 1/2, 2 1/4 & 2 inches. The stamp
was from Joy's Life - LOTS OF PUN STAMPS - "That's Cool!"
The clouds are textured with Cuttlebug A2 embossing folder "D'vine
Swirls" and topped off with Star Dust Stickles. The skateboard is
textured as well with "Tiny Bubbles" from Cuttlebug and the tiny stars
were from George & Basic Shapes with Yellow Stickles. The shooting
star is from Everyday Paperdolls with Stickles - Orange Peel & Xmas

Hope you enjoyed!

Craft Day!

We had our last Craft Day until after summer - schedules get way too busy! It was a successful one once again. This time we started early - 7:00 a.m. ! We had a smaller group this time with 6 attendees. After 15 hours I had to call it quits as my creativity started to suffer. I did get accomplished what I wanted and that was to get 1 year done for my daughter's scrapbook. Here is one of the 12 layout's I did for her.

My recipe for this layout Was simple:

-George and Basic Shapes Cartridge
-Simply Sweet Cricut Cartridge
-EK Success Edge & Corner star punch
-Standard Card Stock in White, Bright Blue and Hot Pink.

I am super excited to be posting this!

My first design that is published on She has a wonderful new set of stamps out called "Lots of Pun" They are perfectly designed to accompany the Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter". I isn't necessary to have this cartridge, but how can you not?

Well here goes.... This stamp I used was "Hi-ppopotamus" from "Lots of Pun" by Joy' AND of course I had to use a Hippo! I decided to make 2 cards right away - saves on time - something I learned from my fabulous Aunt Lolly & Cousin Mindy - thanks ladies for the tip!
The list of things used: -Joy's Life Stamp "Fun with Pun", Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter", Stampin Up punch Modern Label, Edger punch from EK Success "Scalloped Diamond", Stampin Up Cardstock Certainly Celery & Chocolate Chip and other misc cardstock in my collection.

I used stampin' up Celery cardstock for the card at 8 /2 x 5 1/2 & fold in 1/2. I used Choc Chip cardstock for the base of the hippo adn the butterfly. Next layer was dark pink for both, Hippo had the checked pink and then topped with a link pink textured cardstock for the edge, butterfly, stamped punch out, and hippo nose.

The next hippo card has the same concept. Basic colors on a 6x6 inch card. I used all scarps on this card so I don't have the specifics on any. Once again Joy's Life "Lot's of Pun" stamps, Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter". Also added some stickles in Pink & Silver. Once again 4 layers to the hippo Black, pink, dark gray & light gray. The weeds and water are accessories from Create a Critter & the cloud was free hand.

Stay posted for more to come - Also remember to become a follower (look to the right) of my blog.
