I love this printable! It's perfect to scrap your pictures celebrating July the 1st.
It is available free for personal use at Rhonda Steed's website.
I also found this great, free printable.
You can download the file at We 3 blog.
I searched high and low for "Canada" scrap supplies this year. There really is not much out there. Please leave me a comment if you know of any paper lines. In the meantime, I will happily scrap with these awesome 3X4 cards!

My daughter and I love the Paperdoll Dress Up cartridge. I am sure we have cut out every character multiple times over the years. I was so excited to get the second Paperdolls cartridge and we have had fun with that one as well. Today, my favourite Cricut cartridge is Create a Friend. I made this graduation card for a family friend and I wanted to mimic her cap and gown photo. Easy Peasy with this fun cartridge!
I used the attach and hide contour features to write on her diploma so it could be personalized. I love how it resembles her!
The Create a Friend cartridge is included in the Access Design Space Subscription.

I have seen some fabulous cut files to create a BBQ card for Dad. I wanted to see if I could create my own and make our own barbecue/grill.
Here it is! All cut with Cricut cartridges other than the box card file. The food is from Block Party and the sentiment is from Father's Day. The grill *hee hee* is actually a crib rail from Everyday Paper Dolls. (It is called Paper Dolls for Everyday on my Design Space.) I just sliced off the top and bottom and then sized it to my paper barbecue.
I am entering this card for a Father's Day Challenge at Die Cuttin Divas.
Thanks for stopping in!

It's THAT time of year again. The end of the school year card-making session. These cards were quick and easy to make with the Cricut Explore and my Design Space access subscription. The pencil cards are for my high-schooler to give to each of his teachers. There is a Tim Hortons gift card affixed to each one.
I also made the band teacher a canvas for her office. This cut is from the Quarter Note cartridge.
You may notice there is no Father's Day card in that pile. Therefore, I am heading back to my scraproom.

Last week, I opened up Design Space and couldn't believe my eyes. There is a TARDIS! It is on the Trendy T-Shirts Cricut cartridge, included in the subscription. I had to cut it for my daughter who still loves this series. It is a beautiful cut but be patient there are many tiny pieces. *68 cuts but who's counting* I cut my tardis at 10.5 inches and I wouldn't recommend going any smaller.
I added the call box info onto the door. I tried to create a "Doctor Who" effect by sanding some Core'dinations paper as my background.
I love it!
Can you believe all the Doctor Who projects I have made with my Cricut Explore? Here is a roundup of them.

I'm happy to say I was chosen to enter a Mother's Day card challenge for the The Paper Garden. They specialize in beautiful papers for special occasions.
I made this card using the cardstock The Paper Garden sent me. This paper is nice and thick! I actually had to change the setting to a heavier paper on my Cricut Explore to cut it.
I wanted to design a garden for my card.
*You know, a paper garden.*
I have never actually made my own cut file for a box card. I started by welding four bits of fencing together and then added score lines for my score pen. The fence cut is from the Cricut cartridge The First Few Years. I then cut out a thin rectangle to hold my flowers in place. This was my first attempt creating a box card from scratch, now, I want to make more with different plants and flowers, a gnome and a garden sign. Maybe, after Mother's Day...
Here is the link so that you can also enter this Mother's day card challenge or so that you can vote for your favourite card.
Thank you for popping by my blog and The Paper Garden. Have a great weekend!
