Welcome to my world of cards. This is my journey of joy using mainly Cricut and Copics. You will see some different techniques from time to time and I hope you find some ideas that give you inspiration. Everything that I post is meant to be shared and if you wish to "scraplift", I'm happy to share. Have fun while you're are!

A Birthday Crazy Bird


Another of the Crazy Birds using a party hat from an Outline Stamps set I have. I don't remember where I saw the sentiment, but it was just too cute.

Thinking of you - Crazy Birds

If you haven't already seen Tim Holtz's Crazy Birds all over Pinterest and various blogs, then you have missed these cool little guys and gals.

They are so fun to color and I have already made several cards using these little birds.

Birthday Card

I wanted to make a side step birthday card for a guy, but couldn't find pegboard (mini) anywhere. I will say that Papertray Inc. has a die for this, but I didn't want to buy a die for 1 or 2 uses. Soooo, I cut a piece of craft paper and punched each hole with my trusty Karen Foster Clikit. It's a tool I've had for years and I don't used it very often, but when I need it, there is nothing like it. The rest of the tools were from Cricut Design Space )several different cartridges).
I will admit, I loved how this one turned out!

Friend Card

Who doesn't love the AI Stamps?????? These ladies are just to funny. This is one of the clear stamps that came with a set from Michael's. It was the 1st time I had used her, but I'm sure she WILL be used again.

Get Well

I was running short on Get Well cards, so I've made several recently. This digi is a new one from Bugaboo Stamps. I love how expressive her eyes are. I kept colors simplified and used a spellbinders die for the hexagon.

Thinking of you



Sometimes it's fun just to make a card and add a purchased embellishment. I am very careful about what I pay for purchased embellishments. I try to keep my cost between 25-50 cents per item. I wait till the item goes on sale, maybe put in clearance or use a coupon. This particular card sells for $2.50 and the embellishment cost approx. 30 cents.
