The Anna Griffin Pop-Up card cartridge for Cricut is so fun to play around with.  This time I am playing around with the Birthday Present cut.  I wanted to add bling to the inside.  I traded out some of the gift cuts and added patterned papers and gems in place.  The front of the card is a cut from Cricut Access.  All of the papers are from an old Martha Stewart stack.  The twine is by DL.ART STORE


Valentines Day is less than a week away.  Have you been busy making pink and red projects?  Pink and Red is the theme of the new Thankful Thursday Challenge over at DL.ART.  Diana has lots of fun ribbons and buttons in her shop.  For this Challenge I used Pure Love and Red Hot Love from the Valentines Bundle.  I also used red and white time from the Basic Twine selection.  Diana offers my readers a 10% discount just use the code KA345 at check out
My 3 year old grand nephew Gavin loves anything Disney.  I used Mickey and Friends in Cricut design space.  There were too many little pieces so I used the print and cut feature.  I cut the speech bubble and popped it up on foam squares.  The XO paper is American Crafts.  I made a pom pom type bow using red and white twine and Pure Love and Red Hot Love.  The ribbons and twines coordinate so well.  The sentiment is a MCT die.
Check out all of the goodies in the DL.ART Store.
 Also take a look at what Diana and her team have made over at the DL.ART BLOG.  Have a great day full of love and happiness and maybe some crafting.

Hello,  It is a beautiful sunny day.  The light in my craft room is bright-perfect for creating.  My friend's twin grand daughters love Finding Nemo.  I haven't seen the movie.  Cricut has the cutest Disney Cartridge.  After looking at the images, I just decided to purchase 3 images.  The seaweed is from Life is a Beach.  The papers are DCWV. The inside sentiment heart is from My Creative Time

The Anna Griffin Cricut Pop-Up cartridge is so fun to play.  Most of the cuts are for the inside, then there is a print a cut for the outside.  A while back I purchased the AG Trellis dies and stamps and the die cuts.  Almost everything on this card is Anna Griffin

DL.ART FEBRUARY Linky Challenge

Hello, Ity is the first day in February-it's time for another Linky Challenge over at DL.ART
  Diana has lots of pretty pink and red ribbons in her store.  For this challenge I used Sweet Love and Red Hot Love from the Valentines Bundle.  Diana offers my readers a 10% discount just use the code KA345 at checkout.
Sophie is my newest grand niece-she was born in July.  For her First Valentines card, I decided to go with Hello Kitty.  Lately I have been using the Print and cut feature on my Cricut.  It works really well with cuts that have a lot of little pieces. The winged hear is pieced together Hello Kitty is print and cut.  Her bow is Red Hot Love the ruffled border at the bottom is Sweet Love.  Both ribbons are in the Valentine Bundle.

Hello. On Monday I got in a minor car accident.  As a result I have a sore neck and headache.  On the positive side I have been spending a lot of time in my craftroom.  Anna Griffins Treasury binder.  I stamped a lot of roses, then made a matching background.  It still looked a little plain so I added a gold border and a sentiment from another AG set.
