Mother's Day shaker card


I just love making shaker cards! I love choosing an image in my Design Space (I have soo many options with my access subscription) slicing it and turning the image into a shaker card.


Thanks for stopping in today!

I have linked this card at Die-Cuttin Divas. They are hosting a Mother's Day/Feminine challenge.

Design Space 3 - DS3


Woohoo! Design Space 3 launched a beta version on Wednesday night. On Thursday, I thought why not play a bit and check it out. I am so impressed.

In February, I decided that I should broaden my Cricut Explore horizons and start creating my own shareable cut files. Sharable cut files could increase traffic to my blog after all. My very first project was a St. Patrick's Day design for a scrapbooking layout. As my design became more intricate, my Design Space 2 slowed down and eventually crashed and crashed and crashed. I laughed about this failed venture with my husband and moved on.

Thursday afternoon with my brand-spanking new Design Space 3, I finished the file. The program ran super smoothly with no issues at all. I also love having more letters displayed with each font option! It makes choosing the perfect font quicker and easier!

Why not try it out? Here is a link.

Disney shirts for my friend


This month, I helped a friend create their family Disney shirts. This was so much fun! I encourage anyone who has a trip planned to a Disney park to have or create matching shirts. It makes navigating the park as a group easier and Disney employees recognize you right away and SOMETIMES you get VERY special/VIP treatment!


For this red shirt, the fonts I used are Cricut Elegant Cake Plain, Cricut Old West, Star Jedi and Waltograph.


The blue shirts were created cutting freezer paper with my Cricut Explore. My friend used a pencil eraser and fabric paint to paint around the castle cut out after she ironed the freezer paper on the shirt. Once the paint is dry, pull the freezer paper off. I love the finished products and know they will have a magical vacation!

New baby shaker cards


I love making baby cards! I think because they are fun and sweet (as are newborns). The blue card is for my friend's new grandson. Yes, I am in that season of life where my friends' children are getting married and having children.


Do you remember when Costco used to sell huge paper pads? That is where the baby printed paper is from. I held onto these sheets *hoarded* for baby cards.

I created the design for the shaker by using the slice feature on my Design Space for the Cricut Explore.

International Puppy Day!


Happy International (I'm in Canada) Puppy Day! Today, I am posting my first pocket page layout! I am hesitant to even share this because the pocket pages are just so quick to put together, they don't seem "blog-worthy".


This layout features the brand-spanking-new paper line by Becky Fleck (You know her - Page Maps, Crop and Create etc.) called Cooper & Friends. It is manufactured by Photo Play Paper.

Design Space users may notice something particular about my font choice. There is a font called "Chloe" included with my Access subscription, seems to work for my puppy named Chloe!

Valentines layout - Puppy Love



Happy President's Day / Family Day or Louis Riel Day depending where you live. It is a very balmy February day in Manitoba. It is actually raining here right now which is not very common in February. Anyways, it is a perfect long weekend to catch up on some scrapbooking! Here is a Valentines Day layout from Valentines Day last week! Can you believe it?


This was a quick layout to make. I used Project Life cards from the Honey Edition for my journaling. (Still attempting incorporating pocket pages.)

It is also a GREAT day to shop at Cricut.com. They have free shipping to the US AND Canada with the coupon code LOVESHIP. I have included the link down below with the new information about the Cricut Access Subscription. I am planning to upgrade my account and will report back!



Have a wonderful holiday!
