Cricut time

Playing with vinyl lately a lot. Here's a few projects I did lately.

Stocking tradition

Made a bunch of new family members Christmas stockings in the old Barney family tradition.

It's been forever!

Wow, I sure have neglected my blog! I can't believe I haven't posted anything for this long. Going to try to do much better. Life is so busy that it just passes by and there is never enough time in a day! here's a few cards I did recently.

November's club gathering was hosted by me. We had a fun-filled day of crafting as we had it on Veteran's day, so no work and we stamped all day long. I love those stamping play-dates! Here are the cards I made for the day.I didn't have the right color of glitter paper so used white and then colored the champagne with our Barely Beige Shinhan marker. i also made the other cards like this with the glasses touching at the top to "clink" them. Sure do love that Sangria paper pack! I love that deer head on the new Artistry cartridge! So many cool images on this one. It's my favorite one yet!

October's meeting

Here are the cards from our October meeting. Jacki was our hostess. We had a blast as usual! Her new home is really coming along! From her studio, we could look right out onto her "living roof". It is all planted in different types of sedums and other succulents. Very cool. Used the Stamp Of the month a lot and the new cartridge, Artistry. Love the new White Pines paper pack! i added purple sparkle gems to the flower vase make and take card after the picture was taken. Much better! On the light bulbs, I added liquid glass and they look real. Hard to see in the photo.

September club cards

here are the cards I made up for this past meeting. I am loving all the new colors and paper packs now that we can order from the new catalog and new seasonal expressions mini book! The September stamp of the month was my favorite one of all of them since I have been a consultant. So many possibilities and for all occasions!

Monthly stamping club- July

i can't believe I forgot to post the pictures of our last meeting on here. I have been so busy and it has been so hot here that I just have not gotten anything accomplished. had my big scare and spent the night in the hospital and had every test imaginable done to check out my heart, but have passed them all. apparently I had spasms in my esophagus so have to take a pill a couple times a day for it and use an inhaler when going outside or doing anything strenuous. Guess I can live with that, but would rather not have to take any pills. Enough about all of that. We did not meet in August as they all wanted to wait it out until we can order from the new catalog starting Sept. 1st, which is live now! Click on my link on the right hand side of my blog to shop. There's a brand new exclusive Close To My heart cricut cartridge that is just wonderful! Several gorgeous new colors as well. Sad to see so many of my favorites retire but always love to get the new arrivals as well. I found my inspiration from several fellow consul
tants for my cards and just put my own twists on them to make for my group.

June's gathering

I am the host this month and tonight's the night! I am quickly blogging the cards I will demo for them tonight before they arrive. Used the stamp of the month on the make and take and the new Shinhan markers. Love them! Also loving the blossoms paper pack! Can't get enough of it. Used a lot of bright summery colors. I am in love with all the new sequin color sets we are offering lately as well. Hope they keep these around for a while! Hope they like them!

May's gathering

Getting ready for June's gathering and realize I never even posted May's. I am getting so old! LOL Had a great time putting these cards together last month. i am really loving the stamp set with the coffee cups and the Jackson paper combo! Couldn't stop on these variations. Inside it has a gift-card holder cut using the Cricut cartridge. So fun and easy!

Spring has Sprung in Wisconsin

As I look into my flowerbed and go to spend hours of weeding, I just want to sing; Awake from your slumber..... Many of my perennials are coming to life and several of my spring blooming bulbs are putting on a show. My Bleeding Heart is gorgeous already even though it has been moved twice, it is thriving! All three of my clematis made it over the long, frigid winter so that made me happy and a few of my lily trees are popping. Looks promising for this summer to be full color!
