Every now and than you get an idea in your head and get lucky when you can make it look how you envisioned it in your head. That is what happened with my card for this week's challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. This week we are asking your to play with polka dots & chevron patterns. Here is the card I created.
It is one of the most simple cards I have ever done, but I LOVE it. I saw this washi tape with the chevron and it all came into my head - even the sentiment came into mind.
Once I had planned it out I cut out my polka dots and place my washi tape onto the card.
The final step was embossing the red circle and adding the sentiment.To add even more of a final touch I decided to add a circle cut out in the inside as well.
I hope you can join in the fun with us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas and our Chevron and Polka Dot challenge!! have a great week.
I have seen many people talk about the Cast Members they meet at Disney and how they played a special role in making magic for their trips and we are lucky enough to have one such special Cast Member in our lives as well.
Grace was a concierge at Wilderness Lodge when we stayed their for the holidays. She treated us like family and really bonded with our daughter during the trip. She even helped us make sure that our daughter got to visit with Periwinkle, a Disney fairy, while we were on our trip. The title for this page was an easy one for me.
I used some fun Mickey paper and did my journaling in some cropped Mickey Ears to finish it all off. We still keep in touch with Grace and will never forget how special she is. Have a happy Friday and a great weekend.
Good day to you all. This week the Divas at Die Cuttin' Divas are creating Shape cards to share with you and asking you to join in our challenge to create your own shape card. I created this little Russian doll card for the challenge this week.
To start my card I welded the base shape of the image with a mirror version of it so I could add a score line and make my card.
Once the card was created I just needed to add all my pieces on top and she was just about ready to be sent to a good friend of mine. Of course she needed some extra touches including embossing and some sparkle.
I hope my friend liked her and I hope you get a chance to join us in our shape card challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Have a wonderful week.
I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter this coming weekend. Our family enjoys getting dressed up and getting together on Easter each year. I think my favorite things is the egg hunt and decorating. I just finished this layout from a few years ago.
I used some images from Easter Magic and Happy Easter in the Cricut library when I had access to all the images. I decided to change some of the colors and make everything coordinate.
Once everything was all printed I selected some Project Life cards to go behind my images and finished everything off with a little journaling.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend with Spring like fun and joyful family times.

I love when I can take time to see my extended family and friends. When that happens in one of my favorite places on earth - well what could be better.
Back when we traveled to Disney for Christmas we were lucky enough to add in a visit with 2 very dear people to us. I wanted to create a simple 8 1/2 x 11 page for the scrapbook to talk about the visit.
I started with some colorful paper I really liked that also happens to have a double sided feature and many coordinating colors and patterns all in the same stack. Once I had this ready I designed my page.
Using print and cut for journal boxes is one of my favorite this to do so I added some extra details of this visit on the card and selected a font I liked to finish the page off. This was the last thing we did before leaving for home so it was extra special.
Have a wonderful day.

I am so in love with essential oils. They make me feel so great and I love how my home smells when I diffuse them. The woman I am learning from was very into the notebook I made to keep track of my ideas and tips so I made a few more for her to do what she wants to do with them.
I wanted to make these ones very similar to the original one but change up the colors and patterns a bit.
I still used the same bottle cut I found on the Splish Splash Cricut Cartridge (this was one of those smaller cartridges form Walmart!!) because I think is is the perfect little bottle. I played around with the vines and styles.
I still put little designs on the inside as well. I hope whoever gets them will enjoy and use it well. Have a wonderful week all. - Remember there is an anything goes challenge going on this week at Die Cuttin' Divas.

It is an anything goes kind of week - for many on Spring Break and for those who want to play along with Die Cuttin' Divas. This week's challenge is Anything Goes.
Last week my daughter attend a birthday party for a friend who loves Rubik's Cubes so I made her card and gift box to match that love. It was so much fun to put together.
I cut the base of my cube and all the colored pieces got run through my sticker maker ready to go. I followed the template that came with my cut in order to place each square.
I put the box together without trouble and got to work on the matching card. I made a smaller cube and added it to the front with an action wobble to make it move sort of like the twisting cube actually does. I added another on the inside and stamped some sentiments.
I wish I had a photo of the birthday girl - with the box and her actual cube in hand - it was a big hit!! Hope you have a hit this week and get to join in with our Anything Goes Challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
Supplies: - Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons - Puzzle Cube cut - Pink By Design Stamps - Artisan Tags & Love Today sets - Action Wobble
This week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are having fun with 3D projects. We want to see your 3D purses, bags or boxes. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make for this challenge but once I went looking at my different box cuts I got inspired.
I found papers that I liked and wanted to work with and cut the box out of a simple pattern.
Once it was all put together, I layered some pattered shapes to the top and sides. I cut out the brown flowers to coordinate with the colors of my papers and added some gem like brads to finish them off.
I was very pleased with the final look. Not sure what I will use this for, but I have a feeling it will be a great gift box once I do figure it out. Have a great week and come play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas.

It is time for another Tuesday challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas. It is the first week of the month and that means a new sketch for us to play with.
I used the sketch to make a quick card for my daughter. It is competition season again for the dance team and the new dances are wonderful and performing well. This past weekend the lyrical number, to the National Anthem took 4th overall in their division. I wanted a quick card to tell her I was so proud of her work on this number.
I started with the dancer image - I feel like I use these so often that I need to try and mix it up a bit so I selected one with a frame and added a shadow behind.
All the other pieces of the sketch were added with washi-tape, brads and a hand-written sentiment to show how proud. I made it pretty quickly but am happy with the simple results. Here is my dancer in this number!!
I hope you have a wonderful week and get a chance to play along with our sketch challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
