Jinger Adams Design Team Call

Hi Everyone!

I was super thrilled when a few weeks ago, I saw posted on the Cricut Circle MB that Jinger Adam's and The Scrapbooking Queen are having a design team call!  I decided to create the following layout as my entry.

Paper used is DCWV Cafe Mediterranean.  Cartridges used are Cindy Loo for the flourishes cut at 5" and Teresa Collins Sophisticated for the phrase cut at 1.5".  I thought about adding more to this layout, but decided I liked it a bit more simple with clean lines so that the picture is the main focus.

If you'd like to see more of my projects, click on the Project Gallary link at the top of the page.

Thanks for looking!

Cappuccino, Cappuccino!


I have some more layouts from our Mexico trip from 2 years ago to share with you.  I need to either scrap faster or take less pictures; I still have the two trips after this one to scrapbook and we have yet another trip to Mexico coming up in a few weeks.

Anyway, a little bit about this layout:

With dessert every night, I would have a decaf cappuccino to drink.  I don't drink coffee normally and I never drink caffeinated beverages, but I can't pass up a good cappuccino ever since I was in Italy for my honeymoon.  I thought the cappuccinos we got at the restaurants in Mexico looked pretty, so I had to take a picture.  My daughter loves the foam and always asks to all of mine after I put the raw sugar on top.

Paper is DCWV and is based on a layout from their website.  Font is from Nate's ABCs and the cappuccino is the Love You a Latte Cricut Lite Cartridge with the edges inked with Ranger Distressed Ink.

St. Patricks Day Dessert

Friends of ours came over for dinner last night - just a low key evening.  For dessert, I made Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes - very yummy!  Since I wanted to have some green with it being St. Patrick's Day, I added Creme de Menthe over the vanilla ice cream.

I haven't had much time lately to play with my Cricut.  Just a few backpack notes for my daughter.  She loves getting these, but after making so many (she wanted one every school day), I'm getting a little burned out on them.  I've missed several days and keep forgetting to take pictures.

The owl is from Create a Critter and Liquid Pearls are on the beak and feet.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #53 - Wearing O' the Green Challenge

Hi Everyone!

This is for the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge.  The Challenge: Create a pin, necklace, bracelet or something else that you can wear on St. Patrick’s Day that includes the color green. 

Rules and Guidelines: Circle Blog Challenges are open to Cricut Circle Members only. Your project must be newly created for this challenge and include at least 2 Cricut Image Cuts. You must submit a project to be entered into the Challenge Prize Drawing. One entry per person, please.

My project submission is a leprechaun pin.  I used Celebrate with Flourish for the clovers and Simply Charmed for the adorable little leprechaun.

He did turn out a little bigger than I envisioned, but the good news is that bold statement accessories are very trendy right now, so big is in!
