Hannah Name Plaque

I have made this name plaque for my sister to hand on the door of her newly decorated bed room. I used the colours that she has chosen for her room; blue, cream and gold. I also used the CTMH Art Phillosphy cartridge and I have also made the 3D flowers for the first time and for a first effort; I think that they have come out quite nicely. I might be trying it again at some point:-) The lettering was off the Plantin SchoolBook cart and I have added some stick on gold pearls.

Dragonfly Heart

I bought the heart from a garden centre over Xmas and decorated it with flowers and dragonflies for my younger sisters newly decorated bedroom. I used the Pagoda Cricut cart along with gold mirror board and pale blue paper as well as pages from an old book. I added some Tim Holtz Old Paper distress ink to age the paper and make it look less bright. Luckily she really liked it when I gave it to her:-)

Evil Plant Pots

I made this card for my older sister. She fell over on New Years Day and broke her nose on a plant pot:-( She cut her face and nose really badly. The card made her laugh and luckily she loved the card:-)
I used a couple of Peachy Keen Monster faces to make the pots look really mean and the back ground is made from a Halloween Cuttlebug folder with a skull and bones on it.

Pink Cat

I really like the simplicity of this card, I used Hunkydory shaped card stock and I used a cut from the Paisley Cricut cartridge for the cut. I added some gems for the carts collar and I added some ribbon, Crad Candi and to finish the card off I added some pink Divine Twine and some grey.

50th Birthday

This card was made for my bosses 50th birthday, he loves American Football so I thought that the helmet would be quite fitting.
I used the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge along with the grid embossing folder with some mirror card as well as some Paper Celler paper and some Card Candi.
Hopefully my boss will like it!


My husband asked me to make this card for a work colleague who loves Sonic The Hedgehog. I did it the best that I could, I know that it is not exactly the same as the gaming character but I think that it tyrned out ok.
I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge for the hedgehog. Hope that you like it!!

Fishy Meal

This card was made as a gift card for my dad's Xmas present. We bought him a voucher for his favourite restaurant but it was just printed on a white piece of paper so I thought that I would make a nice card for it to go into.
The only meat that my dad eats is fish so I thought that I would put a fish on the front of the card. I added the googley eye because I thought that it looked good. I also put the fish through the Cuttlebug to give it some more dimension, I added the knife and fork in mirror card along with some gingham card for the table cloth. I thought that the ribbon just finished the card off nicely.

Let's Ketchup!

I made this card for a friend that we often meet whilst walking our dog. She always worries that she keeps us talking too long so I thought that I would make her a card to say that it is always nice to catch up with her.
I used the From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge along with my Xyron Design runner. I also added some pretty ribbon and some Card Candi along with some nice bright paper.
She loved the card!!
