Wow, where did the week go? I can't believe it is Thursday already and March will be behind us in a few days. It is nice to see you here again and today I have two projects to show you.

The first project is a card that I invented, I did it a couple of weeks ago and today I got to courage to show it to you , I would love to hear your feed back on it whether you would ever consider making one of these , it is quite simple. it stands really well when reinforced a little with ( Ahh!!! can't tell yet!,  I have a trick up my sleeve and I know all you crafter's have this item in your stash.)

Here it is, I really love the shape of it. You will have to forgive my picture taking today, I was playing around with the settings and I can't take a picture without a little or a lot of blur... gotta get this fixed!

Perhaps in the next week I can put together a picture tutorial... I am still no…

FCCB CHALLENGE (Out like a Lamb)

This is my second post today , click here to see Wisp Tutorial (Frenzy)and my little fella's new hair cut!

I love joining the challenges over at FCCB (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog), I get to see many other creations in the link up section. This weeks challenge is called "Out like a lion" and we are asked to make a project with a gentle animal, lamb, kitten, puppy etc. I wouldn't normally consider an owl to fit in the gentle category but this fella looks harmless , lol

I used the cricut cartridge Cindy Lou to make the layered owl and I love him! I also tried using different bright contrasting color combination and I love the way it turned out!

Here is my project!


Tomorrow I will be posting about what cutting program can be used with Cricut expression.

Thanks for visiting!

Wisp tutorial (Frenzy)

Hello my crafty friends!! I have a couple of things I would like to share with you today. Over March break Michael came to me wanting a Wisp! What's a wisp??? Glad you asked for I had to ask the very same question. It is a Sonic colors character, Michael plays Sonic Colors on his Wii. Thinking this would be a great motivator for Michael I said sure and started looking where to buy it, NOWHERE!!!! These characters are not made into plush toys and how was I suppose to explain that! ( For those of you who don't know Michael has autism and finds it hard to understand concepts) ...so instead of disappointing him I said "Well , you and I should make one!" Considering he wouldn't have to wait for it to arrive in the mail he was delighted!!! So we got started right away.

First I found a picture on Google, this one! How hard could it be to make a plush toy right? lol






Next I got an old purple shirt and used a white sewing pencil to draw this crazy critter free hand.

Well I'm confused thats for sure, hahaha

Today I want to share with you a a technique that I learned from Card-Making-Magic.com , the lovely Christina is always inspiring me for she is up to date with all the techniques and is so awesome to go through all that work to share it with us!!!

The technique is called MASKING. Christina has an awesome easy to follow tutorial with pictures so take yourself on over there right now so you can understand my card. (I will wait for you!)
