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.

YEEEE HAAAAH! Greetings ladies and gentlemen... This is what I came up with for page 67 of the Paper Doll Dress Up challenge. The wonderful ladies I am working with are so forgiving. I was out in the wilderness on vacation and didn't have cel service to upload my project. Talk about the wild west. I went to Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, Virginia and Nevada City, Ennis, Jackson, and Idaho. Sorry, can't say much for Idaho. Loved the rest though! Idaho will always have a close place in my heart for their onions and potatoes... But I couldn't find a thing to do there! To be fair, I didn't google or map out anything ahead of time. So maybe there is and I just didn't see it. We were true "explorers" and totally "winged" the entire trip. Talk about stressing me out. I am a planner. So this was a good challenge for me. Anyhoo... Enough about me. Here are the deets on the project.

Now turn to page 67 in your booklet... LOL! Aren't the images fantastic? So much you can do with them! The background paper was from DCWV Rustic Pack. Yes. DCWV. Its not that I don't buy other brands of paper but I live right down the road from a JoAnns and always pick up their packs at great prices... LOL! The face is the Peachy Keen face stamp I've used previously. I only have a couple but they are so great. I got a smudge on her face with the ink. Note to self, stamp the face FIRST before you dress the doll. Otherwise your screwed... LOL! I covered it up with some indian feather stickers. But don't tell anyone k? :)

Here are the sizes my Gypsy listed:
11.53 x 7 and 10.56 x 6.41 scallopy background, lacy labels.
Girl cut at 2.57 x 3.59
Vest 1.19 x 3.59
Hat 2.76 x 3.59
2.33 x 3.59 Hair
1.95 x 3.59 shirt
1.75 x 3.59 skirt
1.71 x 2.65 skull
 rope 2.93 x 3.35
 horse1.83 x 4.29
