I (heart) My Teacher Card

Hey everyone!

Apologies for my lack of posts, it's been a crazy week again! I did manage to get a card done though for this weeks Paper Cutz Challenge.

Challenge: Teacher appreciation.

I was so excited with this week's challenge! I have has this sticker that I just haven't been able to work into ANYTHING yet and this was PERFECT for it! I didn't use my Cricut for this one at all which I think is actually only my second card I've posted where I didn't use it! Wow!

Graduation Card

Hey everyone!

So this week has been a little crazy. Between being called into work and some sudden family health related events, I've been struggling to find time to finish this card for this weeks Paper Cutz Challenge!

Challenge: Make a card or layout for a graduation using any colours you'd like.

This was actually a tough one for me as I didn't want to just use the graduation cap card from Wild Cards. I Skyped with my dad and he suggested something like the MasterCard campaign with the whole priceless thing. I think it was a good idea! Thanks daddy!

Baby Card (also my first project using my new Cricut E2!!)

Hello Everyone!

It's true! I have an Expression 2: 5th Anniversary Edition! I love it so much! So this week's Cricut Cardz Challenge is the first project I made on it!

Challenge: A card for a new born baby.

Well! Obviously I had to use one of the built in cartridges on the E2 for it and they are so cute! :P I think I spent at least an hour looking at all the new things I can cut! Ooo! I'm so excited! Well, I had a lot of fun making this card, I love making baby cards so much! (I've posted pictures at the end of my new toy at work!)

Fabulous! Card

Hey everyone!

So this is my first week participating in Kristal's challenge over at Getting Cricky but I'm super excited!

Challenge: Sew Fabulous theme.

I love her challenges because she leaves them up to your interpretation so the entries are never like a batch of cookies :) (all exactly the same!) So the "fabulous" part was easy for me, I used bits and pieces of a dozen of the Paper Dolls Dress Up and Everyday Paper Dolls dolls (:P) and I love how it turned out. The "sew" part was a little more difficult. I ended up using some lace from my grandma's old sewing stash and I figured that would pass :P

Mother-In-Law’s Day Card


Hello everyone!

This is probably my last mother’s day card post of the year :( I love making mother’s day cards but alas, they are so seasonal :P Anywho! It’s time for this week’s Paper Cutz Challenge! (It's really late but I'm hoping since Blogger was down since yesterday afternoon they'll still accept my entry)

Challenge: Mother’s Day Card

I am actually really happy with how this card came out. I made it for my wonderful mother-in-law :) I also convinced my husband to fill it out with more than “From your favourite son and his super-crafty wife” like in her birthday card :P

Pink Ribbon Wreath

Hey everyone!

So, you possibly saw the ribbon wreath I posted a few weeks ago here on my blog. Well, if you liked that wreath, you're in for treat.

This was the first one I ever made. It was for my mom for Christmas and she just loves it. It's actually hanging in their living room right now. :)

I originally wanted to make it purple, lavender and white (purple is my mom's fave colour) but I couldn't find enough variety of coordinating ribbons to my liking. So brown, pink and white had the most that I could spot quickly as my husband was waiting for me :P 


I made this wreath with a 12" foam ring. It's smaller than the blue, green and white one in my previous post so it required less ribbon; only 266.5'. Which is 711 pieces of 11 different kinds of ribbon. It took some time because it was my first one, but it is so pretty :)

If you haven't yet, you should check out my other wreath by clicking here!
