Today is bittersweet. I am headed to a funeral for a an 8 year old girl! While that weighs heavy on my heart, I know that she is not suffering any longer. I made this card, in Eve's favorite color (purple) for her mother & stepdad who remained at her bedside for 7 months while she battled brain cancer.
Eek t-shirt & card for my niece. The spider is from the designer's calendar Cricut cartridge. The sentiment is from happy hauntings cricut cartridge & the spider web is from the October 31st cricut cartridge.
I made this gift for my chemo buddy who has breast cancer. She is finishing up her treatment and has overcome some much during this journey & I am so very proud of her. I made the card & matching candle gift set using Stampin' Up's 'because I care' stamp set. I used rose bud & olive memento ink.
When I first joined the Cricut message board - so many acronyms were foreign to me! One was RAK (random act of kindness). I have signed up for many swaps and have enjoyed being apart of all of them as they have all heped me learn & grow! One of the members of the board celebrated her 1 year anniversary of doing a monthly swap called happy mail and to celebrate she is sending out some amazing RAK's. Words cannot express how excited I was last week when 1) this beautiful box was found in my mailbox and 2) I opened it up and found all of these amazing goodies!
Every year theere is a huge winefest in Norfolk, Virginia - and every year I am working.......but not this year! A friend of mine wanted to make glasses for our group that is going and this is our first batch. We color coded them by couples. For the guys' glasses we just did monograms (they are a little off but by the 3rd glass of wine I think no one will notice). We printed the names/monograms off of the computer and just traced them onto the glasses with Marvy DecoColor pens. Thanks for looking!
This image is a sassy studio design - I have had it printed out for weeks & finally had the chance to color this sassy lady up. I will probably put this in my husbands stocking this year with a gift card.
The sentiment is computer generated. The image is colored with copics.
This is another project I made for my secret sister in the mini swap on the cricut message board. She is a copic fan, like me. I had made myself one of these copic journals and love it - so I decided to make one for her as well & dress it up a bit. It has room for all your copic colors you own, so you know just what to wish for. It also has room to mark your favorite color combos - which I love this feature. In the back there are 4 pages that allow you to stamp images and make notes. I hope that she enjoys hers as much as I enjoy mine. If you want to download your own copic journal it is available here. Thanks for looking!
This is a Christmas mini that I made for a mini swap on the cricut message board. It was my forst one and i was so nervous. Some of the girls on that board are truly amazing and put out works of art & I did not want to disappoint my partner. She received it today and loves it. It is for her to put pictures of her niece in at Christmas time. Thanks for looking!
Hello everyone and thank you so much for visiting me on cuttin' up. I started along this crafting journey in August of 2009 as a way to relax and express myself and it has done that and so much more. I have met so many wonderful people and have unleashed a side of myself that I never knew existed and I must say I love her!
It is amazing how far my talents and knowledge has come since last August and I am so excited to see where my creativity will take me next.
Thanks so much for stopping to visit my blog and hope that you will follow me on this journey.
