My favorite cricut cartridge ever.

Recently I have made 2 fantastic scrapbook gifts.  The first was a grandma brag book for her first grandchild.  With the artbooking scrapbook I was able to make this book in just one week.  I am sorry to say I didn't take pics but I will try to get pics to share with you.

I was able to create this book in under 2 weeks.  If you know me, I am not usually that fast.  I will get pics of this soon too.

My Creations Muslin Drawstring Bag

These cute bags are 4x6 and come in packs of 3.  Z1822

I put a 4x6 index card inside while stamping so the ink won't go to the back of the muslin. I stamped with the discontinued stamp set Harvest Home (C1419) but if you don't own it I recommend you purchase the
current stamp set Count You Blessings C1555.  It has awsome pumpkins, corn stakes, etc.  For ink I used the CTMH pigment mini pad set and to color I used our great alcohol markets.

Work Shop on the Go # G1063


This is a great card making kit for cardmakers and even non cardmakers.  All materials are including in kit, just add adhesive.  Directions and everything matches are included.  Have fun.

First card I made with a gutter


Sorry that the pics are sideways.
This card was very fun to make. Cut one piece white daisy and 1 piece printed cardstock at 4 3/4 x 5 1/2.  Score the 5 1/2 side at 1/2 inch.  This will become a gutter.  Cut 1 piece of printed cardstock at 1/5 x 5 1/2.
Using the artist CTMH cartridge cut 5 balloons and 1 cup cake.  Artiste cartridge # D1529.  This cartridge comes with the purchase of the Artriste Z1790.  You will also cut 1 of the Happy Birthday tags from the same stamp set and cartridge.  Use the measurements that are indicated right on the stamp set.  Stamp in the colors you like.  I also used strong adhesive to make the cutter.  You will need asitate to hold up the balloons and cupcakes.  Join me at club for more instructions.

I used laughing lola paper.  I love it, and hope you do too.
