Altered Notebook (well, just the front)

I helped my mother in law make this to for a wedding shower. I think it is cute and quite addictive to make. Who doesn't like a personalized notebook and ribbon?

Cricut cutting Fondant

I used the cricut to cut hello kitty out of fondant. I have heard of ladies doing this on cricut boards so I just had to try it. Ladies advised to put gum-tex with the fondant to help it dry so that is what I did. I set my machine on slow speed and low pressure with my blade at a 6. It cut pretty good. What do you think?

Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut

I have cut a few images for Jody's birthday. The group of 3 was cut at 4 3/4" and the hello kitty balloons and cake were both cut at 11 1/2". I like to use some sort of embellishments for the bows or small areas. I used brads today. When I cut her I always use a piece of yellow to layer behind the spot for her nose. I just don't like the little dot that is suppose to be used.

Santa Face

I am just learning and playing with scal2 and I am trying to get everything just right but OMG it takes some practice. I do find it fun, alot more enjoyable than I thought I would. So, here is a santa face that I have been playing with. I do wish that I could figure out how to create my own but I am not that techincal nor creative. I hope you enjoy this.

Stamped Image Swap

I have been doing a couple of swaps lately and of course the ones that I really would like to do are already full or the deadline to sign up is already past. Or too many restrictions. So, here is what I would like to do.

I would like to host a stamped image swap. Send two stamped images, any two that you like, 5 copies of each stamped image. The ink would be black staz-on so that we can color it as we wish. Please leave a comment if you would be interested.
I will keep this open until September 5, 2009.

Lunchbag Mini Album

For Mother's Day my mom and I swapped a mini album that we created. I made her a flip flop book and she made this brown lunch bag mini album. There are many, many pockets that tags, embellishments and pictures can be hidden. I personally love it.
