Category Archives: Cricut Cartridge: Storybook Cricut Cartridge

Thank You Berry Much!

I had to make a slew of cards the other night and I came up with an easy yet cute card that went super quick.  I may add this to my Christmas gift packs.  I got the original idea from My Pink Stamper in one of her tutorial videos making a cherry card and I have run with it since.  Thank you MPS!   If you have not had a chance to check out her videos, they are worth pouring yourself a cup of joe, adding a little “rat poison” (that is what I call my favorite creamers I tell my hubby that I am just taking off the bad years while I pour that into my cup of joe) and sit a spell and enjoy getting some neat ideas and tips.

I Feel The Love Call For Cards From Funky Cards

There is this amazing young lady from, Funky Cards,  that has an opportunity for crafters to make a special card for a person/family going through challenging times.  This is my contribution to her “I Feel the Love Project“.  Thank you Funky Cards for this amazing opportunity to touch such a wonderful little girl and her family. 

This project touches me especially since I was a nanny for a family, while in college, that had a little girl who was in treatment and recovery stages of having a brain tumor that came back twice.  She was 18 months when I started and I got to be a part of her treatment plans (PT/OT, removal of feeding tubes and central lines), learning to walk, sing, play, and most of all be in remission.  She is now almost 18 years of age!  Many special prayers and thoughts go to Marley and her family!

Quick Cards and Fun Cards

I am on a roll with making cards this weekend.  I made one for a friend that just got an amazing job at 3M and in this economy, that is something to celebrate and I am attending a double birthday tomorrow for a close family friend’s little girls where the theme is Princess Party. 

I have to admit I am still stuck on the faux chipboard concept I learned from My Pink Stamper, so you will see that implemented in the princess themed cards.  Plus I needed any excuse to break out my new “Once Upon A Time” Cricut  cartridge.

Used Die Cuts With A View Summer Stacker and Storybook Cricut Cartridge
Stamps: Stampin’ Up Tart and Tangy and My Pink Stamper
 

A Hip Cowgirl Kind of Card

I just made this card per request for a hip cowgirl that is named Jane (hence the “J”).

Supplies:

Cricut Cartridges:  Create a Critter (under horse setting size 3 inches) and Storybook (scallop) – Shift/Shadow/M size 2 inches and 1 1/2

Paper: Michael’s bulk  individual sheet for the embossed light pink daisy

Paper: Zebra print and solid dark pink – Anna Griffin Payton Collection Stack – Michael’s

Stamps:  Stampin’ Up whimsical lower case alphabet

Stamp Ink: Stampin’ Up Classic Black

Card Base:  $ bin at Michael’s.  They came in sets of 8 with envelopes.

Ribbon.  Celebrations line from Michael’s.

I used the faux chipboard technic from My Pink Stamper for the horse shoe and added “bling” on the nail cutouts.

More Fun Cards and Gift Ideas . . .

I find it hard to mak cards for grown men.  My husband’s sister and family were in from out-of-town and both his sister and her husband’s birthday are this month.  They came over for dinner last night and I whipped together these two cards and gift ideas yesterday kind of on the fly.  They loved them and the card was not too girly for a manly man!

Supplies Needed:

Paper was from Die Cuts with a View Summer Stacker

Stamp was from Tart and Tangy – Stampin’ Up and Pink Stamper

Ribbon - even though there was no brown in the actual paper theme, I thought it complemented the theme and added some masculinity to it.

Tin gift box with window – Michael’s – He loves M&M’s so I filled it with those.

Scallop was from Storybook Cricut Cartridge (Shadow Setting -M) I made it at 2 inches.

I used Martha Stewart craft markers to color the stamps.

Cherry Card:  I added a loose tea leaf ball that she could use for brewing her loose leaf tea that she wanted.

For the cherry card - see my pervious post on the details:

Fun Way to Say Thank You, Happy Birthday or Just Because!

I just borrowed something from a friend and wanted to make sure to let her know that I was really appreiative of what she loaned me.  I made this quick card and added a little sweet treat to it as a THANK YOU! I got the card idea from one of my favorite craft bloggers, Pink Stamper

Supplies Needed:

White Tin Box (found at Michael’s for $2.99)

I found blank cards with envelopes in the dollar bin (8 pack) at Michael’s that I used as my base.

Stampin’ Up Tart and Tangy stamp set (I used the Cherry) – I found this via Stampin’ Up, but it is being discontinued – Ebay has some

Paper was Rock-a-bye Design from Stampin’ Up from 2008.  I found packs still being sold on Ebay.  I LOVE THIS PAPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The scallop I used was from Cricut cartridge Storybook (Shadow setting – Letter M).  I set it at 2 inches.

For the candy I used Skittles.

For the color of the stamp, I used Martha Stewart’s Craft markers – they worked perfectly and I got to use a 50% coupon on it – even better!

Spreading the Patriotic Cheer One Gold Nugget at a Time

This 4th, I decided to move away from the traditional Red, White and Blue muffins I make and pass out to the neighbors for the 4th of July.  I found this idea on the Pink Stamper video logs and turned little take-out boxes into a patriotic treat anyone would love to grace their front door.

Supplies Needed:

Small to-go boxes ( I found these in a pack of 10 at Michael’s)

Bag of Hershey Nuggets

Scrapbook paper cut into strips 3 inches long and 1 inch wide ( I used the 4th of July themed paper from Die Cuts with a View Summer Stacker.)

Adhesive

Cricut Cartridge Celebrations (tag was 3 inches)

Cricut Cartridge Storybook (label was 2 inches)

String of stars to attach the tag to the box ( I found this on clearance at Joann’s)

Stamp was from The Pink Stamper collection

Ink was Basic Black from Stampin’ Up.
