Lacy Labels Cricut Cartrige

I bought the Lacy Labels cartridge yesterday at Walmart. Oh my, oh my! What fun I've had experimenting with it. Guessing what size to cut is the challenge, but so far (I've only made two different "labels"), I only had to resize the first once and just once.

I used the March stamps for the smaller card since I had some all colored. The larger card is a 5" x 7" and I'm loving how it works. Hope you enjoy too.

Almost St. Pat's Day

I have a very dear friend whose birthday falls on St. Patrick's Day. I wanted to make a card with a little of the holiday theme, but mostly to honor her birthday, so I came up with the following card. I must say that I'm quite proud of it... I usually use a template as I don't often come up with an original, but this came out great, much to my delight.

The daffodil is the flower for March. (I checked on the internet to get the coloring correct. There are many colors for daffodils but this was the most familiar.) Once again the stamp is from Sweet 'n Sassy, but a clear stamp this time. All other products are from Stampin' Up. (I'm working at getting all 12 months of flowers.) This card was really fun to make.

More Cocoa

It's been awhile since I posted anything. Must have been busy. I've been working on my 2010 scrapbooking which I call my Annual Photo Journal. After doing heritage albums for the family and other albums, such as my husbands years in the USMC, I now do an album each year documenting what we do and where we go. Lots of pages are from Christmas and July. That's when we go north to see kids and grandkids.

Anyway, I decided it was time to do some more cards. I love the Cocoa stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy. Both of these are digital, although I've ordered regular stamps from them also. Hope you enjoy them...
