WHERE'S THE RIBBON-Prince the Prankster

I was making a valentine card using my beautiful Valentine Bundle ribbon from DL.ART.  I couldn't find the Sweet Love Pink any where.

This is my daughters dog-although I am the one who takes care of him.  I have named him "Prince the Prankster"  Yesterday he somehow got an avocado-his whole face was green.

A DARLING MESS

I am finally getting serious about finishing or rather starting a scrapbook for my sons graduation in June.  For my 2 girls I made a few pages a year.  I displayed them on a wall at their graduation party, then I put them in an album for them.  Now the school year is half way over-I realize I need to get cracking on this.  Here is one page of year 2-  All of the square and rectangle dies are Stitched Rectangular Frames & More or Stitched-Square-Dies-Inside-Out by My Creative Time.  The pastel chalkboard paper is Recollections.  The sentiment is from Cricut First Few Years.  The sticker is Paper Studio.

NEW STUFF

Recently I purchase a Cricut Explore.  I had for a few weeks before I started using it.  I had a lot of problems linking my carts, but Anita at Cricut really helped me out.  I have wanted the Art Nouveau Cart for a while, it is one of the carts that come with a subscription.  For this project I used papers from Hobby Lobby.  The adhesive solid papers came in handy for all of the small pieces.   The lacy background is also from Cricut Explore.   I added 4 Terra Skittles by Carri at Double-click Connections. The burgundy mat is a spellbinders die.  The gem flourish is Paper Studio.

Finally...Holiday Cards

This years Christmas card was a bit of disaster.  I bought a Sizzix shaped card die.  It was a gate fold design.  When my daughter came home at Thanksgiving she didn't want to take a picture.  So I found one with my husband and the three dogs.  I made about 20 cards.  Then he said I couldn't send it out .  The good news is I have a lot of cards started for next year.  I just have to take the photo earlier.  By the way the inside now says Happy New Year.
first attempt-Hubby hates picture
second atempt with new photo-photo too big
third attempt flipped photo and card-wouldn't stand up
Fourth and final-a frame using Cricut Explore.
