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.
