First Birthday Card

Here is a card that I made for my little cousin for his 1st Birthday. I used DCWV Citrus Stack for all of the cardstock except for the bear which is Bazill Bling paper. For the bear, balloon & the "Happy Birthday" I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. All are on the same key. For the top layer of the bear, I used a Cricut Terrifically Tacky Tape sheet (which I picked up at Michael's on clearance!) & sprinkled on some brown flock so he is fuzzy! To finish it off, I added a star printed strip of ribbon. I think it came out really cute! I really love this cartridge, I can't wait to make more things with it!

Bride to Be card

I just made this card for a friend's Bridal Shower. I used the "Just Because" Cards cartridge to make the base & the scalloped border. I used the Sans Serif cartridge for the Bride to Be. Then I used the Straight from the Nest cartridge for the heart flourish. The card & flourish are made from DCWV shimmer card stock & the Bride to Be from DCWV glitter card stock. I embellished the heart with lilac rhinestones, the scallop with clear dots & dotted the i with a clear square rhinestone.

Recipe Box

Again, it has been WAY too long since my last post. I feel like I never have time to do what I love the most, creating. I really am going to try to find the time to catch up on my scrapbooking & projects that I have been wanting to work on & keep up with my blog.

Here is a recipe box I recently made for a friend's Bridal Shower. I really love how it came out! I want to make one for myself next! I started with an unfinished wooden recipe box that I purchased at A.C. Moore. I also picked up some pearl white paint & metallic silver spray paint. 

I removed the hinges & the latch from the box & spray painted them silver & set them aside to dry. I then painted the box with 3 coats of pearl white paint. Using the Nana's Kitchen Stack by DCWV I chose a sheet of paper for the top. I cut it out on the Cricut using the "Just Because" Cards cart. I used the duck shift key to get the die cut. I then inked the edges with shimmery blue ink. The "From the Kitchen of" logo was printed out   
on the computer onto pearl white cardstock & cut into an oval shape then inked around the edge in shimmery purple ink.

Blue & Black glitter letter stickers spell out the words on the front of the box. To finish it off, a white ribbon with tiny blue dots & a square blue stone in the center.

For the dividers I used Nana's Kitchen Stack. I don't have the From my Kitchen cart, so I cut them out by hand.
