Buckeyes & Duck Cups

Good morning everyone. Going to really try to get back into blogging and posting pics this year. I got to the point that I felt everyone was already doing and posting so anything I showed wouldn't be new or exciting. But then came to the realization that no matter what I do, its still a bit different. Its my take on said project. And it 'might' be interesting to some. And it doesn't hurt anyone to post. So I should do it for 'me' above all but if it helps another than thats awesome too. With all that being said -- here we go. Blogging - Take 2!

So, any of you football fans? I am not over the top like some but I do love my Oregon Ducks. And my husband is from Ohio so he's a big Buckeye fan. I am too. They've sort of grew on me. BUT what is a girl to do when two of her teams compete against each other? I was soooo stressing out. So in order for me to keep my calm, I worked on the two images during the game and then during half time went out and cut them on my new Explore. My husband loved how his cup turned out and I'm pretty happy with mine too. It was done quickly and has some flaws but nothing too noticable. I used design space and oracle 651 vinyl. The glasses came from the dollar tree.

Hope you enjoyed the project. Have an amazing day!

Oregon Hat

Been a very long time since I posted. I am sure my craft room has spider webs. UGH! But I will share my hat I made with my Knifty Knitter from Provo Craft. I made it with White, Green, and Yellow yarn for an OREGON DUCKS fan. It was my first time adding anykind of monogram to it. So I am sure my skills at that will get better with time. Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!

Beware of the one eyed boobie snatcher!

Hi everyone. Its been so long since I posted anything and I apologize. A few of of you knew that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were devestated. she first had a lumpectomy but unfortunately she had to go right back in for a masectomy. When mom and I are scared or nervous we crack jokes. So I couldnt help it. I had to make this card. Its been awhile so I am guessing on the details. But I do believe I used Mini Monsters on this.  Take care everyone!

I Believe In The Craft

 Yep. I admit it. I believe in the craft! Whether it be with a bug, an imagine, my G, the knitter, the cuttle, or simply paints or drawing with a pencil or some crayons.... I believe in crafting so much that I made a big ol' sign for my craft room stating as such. :)

I had so much fun with this. I used my Everyday Cricut Cartridge and my Locker Talk Cartridge to cut out some really adorable images. Layering til my fingers bled. Okay. They didn't bleed. But you get the point. LOL!

Tell me what you think! Do you love it?

Hello everyone! I finally got an opportunity, or should I say carved out a few minutes, in the craftroom. My dear friend Donnas birthday is today and I needed to get a card made for her. I grabbed the Simply Charmed cartridge for it and was very happy with the results. Images cut at 3.75" and placed on a 5" card. Very simplistic but oh so adorable. I can't wait til' we look like this dancing in vegas. LOL! I don't think I've played with this cartridge yet and I have no idea why. The images are darling! So you might be seeing alot of this cartridge over the next month as I explore it. I think since I started or shall I say ended the PDDU series, I have taken a hard look at my unused cartridges. I think I have a passion for buying but not truly exploring or appreciating them. So I need to take the time to play with what I have. It will save me money to do so, but more than that, it would be good if I knew what I actually HAD! :(

Hope everyone has an outstanding weekend. xo K

Done. Finished. Final PDDU series.

Yes my friends. You read that right. We've reached the last episode of the series. We all agreed to start and end with a tag - using the border from the last page and any other image in the book that we desired. Mine was very simple and made with little scraps of paper from the scrap bin. Very easy and a nice way to end the series. Please check out the other ladies this afternoon and give them kudos for the wonderful work they've done thru series and please keep them on your list to draw inspiration from in the future. They are all amazing and talented women. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work with them.

This week I decided to make a little plaque to put in my neices bedroom. She's a lil' angel herself. :)
Cuts came from page 75. Cut at 3.75" all from misc. paper scraps. Hope you like it. Now go and visit my wonderful teammates who continually inspire me and who are remarkable women that I have the honor of getting to know better and better each week. Feeling blessed!

Edited to note: PK Face Stamp. Thanks Ag!
