Spring Blog Hop

Hi everyone, Happy Friday!!  Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop, featuring artists from the Cut It Up and Die Cuttin Divas Design Teams.



If you are here from the amazing Gerda's Blog, then you are in the right place!  Let me share what I created:



Here is a walk through of my project:  


Mini Albums are one of my favorite crafts to create!  I find them so therapeutic.  This time, I used some die cuts to enhance the decorating.  The title is from Gypsy Wanderings and the frame is from Elegant Edges.  I also used some dies from Tim Holtz and  Bo Bunny, that I show you in the YouTube video.

The gorgeous paper is from PhotoPlay.  It's bright colours are a little outside the box for me, but I love the final result!

Die Cuttin Divas - Golf

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  Today's challenge is GOLF.  I can't wait to show you what I created.

So, golf is not really my thing, but my husband and father in law enjoy it.  I used quite a few cartridges for this card.  The golfing teddy is from Create a Critter 2, the sun is from Doodlecharms and the grass is from Plantin Schoolbook.  I chose the background paper, because it reminded me of a pin-striped shirt.

The sentiment is from a retired Scrappy Moms stamp set called "For the Boys".  It's a fun set, with great sayings for masculine cards.

Who doesn't LOVE a sketch challenge?  This one is a fun one!  The central image is from "Twinkle Toes", which is a Cricut Cartridge I forget I own - It has SUCH cute images on it!  I think this little girl is ADORABLE!

Die Cuttin Divas - Easter

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  Today's challenge is EASTER.  I can't wait to show you what I created.



I have been working at using my Cricut more this year.  I pull it out every winter, to make Christmas Tags, and then stop using it.  In an attempt to use what I have, I have been exploring some of my favorite cartridges, to find ways to use them more.  Teddy Bear Parade, was always one of my favorites!  

I love this adorable Easter Bunny Bear!  She is purple, because it is my daughter's favorite colour.  The sentiment I used is from CTV Stamps "Happy Days" stamp set.  It's a great set, with SO many possibilities.
