Welcome to the FIRST of our

Create a project with a pocket! 
Whether it folds, tucks, or hides a treat,
pockets are a fun way to add something extra!

I had to think a little out of the box for this one for some reason. Ideas just weren't coming to me UNTIL I looked at my favorite Cricut cartridge "Create A Critter" and found the cute little mailbox. Just what I needed to make a cute pocket of some sort. 

Isn't she just darling and who doesn't love getting mail? Well, mail that isn't bills or junk. I especially love getting Peachy Keen stamps in the mail. I just love those little faces. Makes me smile every time I stamp one on!

MCT Throwback Thursday Challenge

Better late than never, huh? Emma over at My Creative Time is having another Throwback Thursday challenge. Okay, well its been going on for 2 weeks now and today is the last day to enter. I finished my card tonight and entering it as soon as I finish this post. Hey, don't judge. 

I am loving the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge! The challenge is to make something from a sports cartridge but if you don't have one it has to be sports themed. I immediately went to this cartridge and found something sports related. It turned out way better than I imagined. So excited to show it here. 

I will have to say that this is not my "go to" colors for football but I didn't have  the right orange for a Gator themed cheerleader. I kinda needed to schmooze (<---yes, that's a word) the hubby so I made it a Bama theme so he would give it a great big smile when I showed it to him. Like how I work it, don't cha? 

Anyways, here's the card....

Items used:
Cardstock- Bazzill 
Cricut Cartridge- Everyday Paper Dolls
Peachy Keen Stamps for face
Maraschino and Charcoal twine- The Twinery
Banners and Background Stamp- My Creative Time

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed my card. 

Love to all~

Peachy Keen Stamps: Kickoff Linky Party

One of my resolutions this year was to be more crafty and to enter more challenges. I've been in my craft room the past 3 days and I'm entering a challenge. I guess you could say I'm doing pretty well so far. This is my first time entering anything with these stamps because up until yesterday I've never owned any. My sweet husband took a peek at my wish list, ordered a few of my favorites and surprised me with them yesterday. I got right to work on this cute card so I could submit in the challenge. 

Items used: 
Create A Critter cartridge
Peachy Keen Stamps Wide Eyed Kids
My Creative Time Stamps 100% Sweetness
Top Note Die from Stampin Up
Marashino Twine from The Twinery

The card was a lot of fun to make and I finally used my Gypsy which is another thing I wanted to do. Could one say I'm on a roll? Better not jinx myself. 

Thanks for looking!

Brand New Year!

So ready for a new year full of creativity, projects and getting things done! I was on a long 10 day vacation with my family and when we returned home today I had a very exciting package waiting for me in the mail.

I absolutely love Emma over at My Creative Time and when I received 3 gift certificates for Christmas to use on her stamps and dies I couldn't wait to use them. They were burning holes in my pockets. I've only used 2 of them and think I will wait for her next release to use the 3rd one. I am determined to get more involved in making projects and using these stamps and dies will make it so much more fun to do! 

Please continue to come back and see what I will in store for you to look at and enjoy. Hope everyone is having a great start to the New Year!!
