Hope Your Day Sparkles

One of my best girls recently became engaged!  Yay, Sara!  I can't wait to be a part of your big day!  :)  I made this little card for her:
I used the Sweethearts cartridge to cut out the ring and the rock!  I added some glitter chevron adhesive ribbon and stickles to give it some bling!  The sentiment "Hope your day Sparkles" is from the Pink by Design "Dazzle" stamp set!  I thought the sentiment was perfect!  The pearls are from Martha Stewart.  I'm going to head on over to the Pink Cricut Blog and link up!  You should come take a look too!  You will be inspired!  Then, maybe next Tuesday, you can link up too!  Let me know what you think about this card...and if you'll link up with Pink Cricut next week!

Good Gumdrops

Goodness, I wish had more time to do this!  I love papercrafting & I love sharing it with people!  I just wish I had more time to do it....and then even more time to do some proper posts!  Well, today is one of my good friends birthday so I made her this cute little card.
She has a sweet tooth much like myself, yet we both try to keep it in check.  I figure since we deprive ourselves from enjoying those tasty sweet treats daily, we could at least celebrate with sweets...kind of, anyway!  I used the Sweet Shop cartridge for the words and the candy.  I also ran some of the papers through my Cuttlebug, and added a little stickles too.  Enjoy!

'Stashing through the Snow

My Friend, Sara, is currently infatuated with mustashes.  She saw a picture of a mustashe ornaments and thought it would be fun to make these ornaments but wasn't sure how to go about it.  It was really pretty easy.  I bought large, round, frosted ornaments from Hobby Lobby as well as mustashe stickers.  I already all the other materials.  We poured hairspray (cheap-o hairspray) into the ornaments and made sure to coat the inside.  We dumped out the excess.  Then, we poured glitter in each ornament and shook them all around to be sure the entire inside of each ornament was coated with a nice solid coat of glitter.   From there, we put on the stickers - Yes, the letters took a little patience, but it was well worth it!  From there, we sprayed the outside of the ornaments with more hairspray and "dipped" the bottoms in MS white flocking powder.  The red ornament, I actually dipped into a white glitter.  This hopefully gives off a "covered in snow" effect.  To finish off the ornaments, we selected ribbon from my stash and attached it to the top of the ornaments so we could hand them from the tree!  I hope you like our craftiness!  We had fun creating these...oh and these really took no time at all!  Super simple, easy & fun!
