Quick Graphic 45 LO and kids Valentines

This layout was so quick to make using Graphic 45 paper.

To create this page, all I did was hand cut around the elements of the paper I wanted to show. I then inked all my cut lines to cover the white core. I slipped my matted photo in my cuts, and cut a tag with my Cricut to match the title on the paper. I had to stickle Dorothy's shoes to make them look authentic and tada! (My daughter was such a cute Dorothy.)

I am playing with Valentines this week. I will be teaching a children's scrapbooking class and I am planning on creating some Valentine cards. These are my first 4 ideas.

I decided to cut up one sheet of 12X12 cardstock to make 8 - 3 inch Valentines. I guess I better get busy making the next 4.
Have a great day!

Sympathy cards

Santa brought me some distress inks for Christmas. I decided to play with them and make some cards at the same time. My goal was to create the effect of frost on a window using the inks. Yes, I should mention that it is freezing here in Winnipeg today and there is frost on many windows!

I am having fun playing and creating inside the warm house!
I am entering these cards for the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut. Their challenge this week is to create a project with a snowman or snowflake. Please click the link to play along.

Downhill skiing layout with Echo Park

My son was reluctant to try downhill skiing for the first time. These photos are from his first time skiing.

This layout uses all Winter Park paper by the Echo Park Paper Company. It was a quick one to put together with all the great little paper add-ons like the tickets and journaling spots (I covered the children's names). The title on this layout is cut from the new Go Canada Cricut cartridge, I figured that would be an appropriate font for a winter layout...

I am entering this layout at SOUS. I am a big fan of this challenge site and would like to participate a bit more this year. Secondly, I am submitting at Cooking with Cricut. Their challenge this week is to create a project based on an amazing winter photograph.

Happy New Year!

Good Morning! I do not have a project to share today but I do have some inspiration for you. I spent some time watching HGTV on Sunday and watched an episode of Sarah's House where they decorated a craft room. Here are some screenshots of their finished room.

Here is the link to watch the video online.

I think the room just needs a Cricut or two and I would be quite happy there!
