Believe card

As soon as I saw this bell cut on the Christmas Solutions cartridge, I knew I wanted to make a card inspired by the book "The Polar Express".

Packs of penguins and gangs of gingerbreadmen

've now lost track of how many cards I have made this holiday season. These ones were mailed last week and should be almost at their destinations.

Holiday card for the school bus driver

Does anyone else have a drawer of die cuts? This bus was in my drawer. I knew I was saving it for something.

It's almost time for Brownies...

and I have no gift or card... So I quickly used the Create A Critter cartridge to make cocoa sliders for the troop leaders "Brown Owl" and "Snowy Owl".

These were super quick to make using all scraps. My daughter loves how they turned out!

Cream City Ribbon blog hop

Welcome hoppers! Thank you so much for stopping in! These are my recycled projects featuring Cream City Ribbon. This ribbon is organic and biodegradable. You can check out their website here. All my projects today feature their ribbon.

I have a secret from friends and family. I cut up old Christmas cards - and I have always done this. I save them all every year. I usually cut up the pretty ones to make tags and gift boxes. The base of this card is a cut up card and the glaze on the lightbulbs is actually scraps from my laminator (more recycling).

When you moisten this ribbon, it loosens the glue. You can then play with it and almost place it like it's floss. When the glue dries again it will stay put.

Another card made for my daughter to give away... She loves the Peachy Keen faces.

The Cricut machine makes cutting up cards even easier. I used my Gypsy to help with the placement of the tag cut (So I could get the image I wanted). I added brads, eyelets, stickles, ink and gems to the tags.

I am the last stop on the hop but here is the full list if you missed any of the others.

1. Nikki

2. Mandie

3. Grace

4. Kim

5. Meighen

6. Chris

7. and me.

My blog candy is a Stampin Up stamp set to use with clear blocks. I bought this stamp set thinking it would be perfect for cards. I will also add some Cream City Ribbon to play with.

Please write a comment for an entry and if you are a follower please comment again for a second entry. I will use random.org to chose a winner on Monday morning. Good luck. (CONTEST CLOSED)

Thanks again!

Action Wobbles - in action

Think of action wobbles as a pop dot that gives the die cut motion.

Sticking it on...

Moving from side...

To side.

Action Wobbles

I guess I never really thought they would mail samples to Canada but they did! I guess I'm a cynic.

I can't wait to try them out!

Thank you Momo.
