Knock Knock Visitors

My father and mother-in-law and brother and sister-in-law stopped over to visit and I took pictures due to it being dad's 83 birthday on March 17th. We had a good time and I decided to scrap the pitchers this morning. I drew the bears as vector drawings using Paint Shop Pro and imported into my Pazzles Machine to cut. I then used my Cricut to cut the Knock Knock (Sentimentals cartridge) and Family (Home Accents) titles. The paper is DCWV paper that I picked up at JoAnn's.

Father & Son Sharing

Our neighbor set up a tree blind in their backyard to teach his son how to use a crossbow gun for hunting. It was fun watching the father and son bonding. I decided to head outside to take some pics with my camera my hubby bought me - Canon EOS Rebel XS. The 300 zoom is wonderful. I scrapped the following pages this morning. I used fonts to create the cuts with my Pazzles machine. I used Cricut Base Camp for the title. Thanks for looking.

A couple of cards...

Here are a couple of cards I made yesterday. Three were for Cricut Fairies and one was for a dear friend.

This card was done for a 7 year old girl. I used the Disney Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True to make this card.

This one was done as an 80th birthday card. This one was for a man and I figured the bear would work well. The bear was drawn as a vector drawing and imported and cut using my Pazzles.

This one was done for someone going through surgery. I designed the bear as a vector drawing and imported into my pazzles machine.

This one was done for a special friend and I so hope she likes it.

Snowplace Like Home

We had a Noreaster hit us on February 27th. I thought the snow was so pretty that I just had to take pictures and scrap them. I used the font SnowCaps for the title and the font Flakey for the snowflakes using my Pazzles Machine. The paper came from JoAnn's as single sheets and I do not know who made it.

Erica & Blake Layout

This is a layout I did of our granddaughter, Erica, and her fella, Blake. I used the Cricut Songbird for the Title and the Sweetheart cartridge for the kids at the table. The white doilies came from Walmart and I adorned with heart gems. Erica will be attending Western Michigan University in the fall to be a Child Psychologist and Blake is attending Western now for Business. I love scrapping my grandchildren and had fun doing this one.

Winter Beauty Layout

My sweet husband bought me a great digital SLR camera for Christmas Year before last and I finally have decided I need to learn to use the zoom lenz that he got with it. It is so much easier to pick up the point and shoot camera and I really need to start using the new one. I love birds and I took a bunch of pictures that I thought looked great against the snowy background. I especially love picture of the cardinal looking like he is taking a snow bath. I used 50 States to do all of the birds. The Woodpecker one is actually altered a bit as I could not find a woodpecker on any of the carts I have. There are a ton of Cardinals (didn't know that many states have Cardinal as their State bird) and I used them all. I used a black marker to make some of the details on the cuts. I used the Songbird cartridge for the title. It did not turn out as well as I was hoping for... but, I like it enough.

Yet more cards...

I have been working on Cartridge Challenges on the Cricut Member Board. This week's challenge is to use only Stretch Your Imagination and any other cartridge for the font. I came up with these two cards that I put together in Design Studio using SYI and for the first one I used Wild Card for With Sympathy title and the second one I used Lyrical Letters for Get Well.

More Cards

I made some cards this morning for the Cricut Card Fairies. I am learning a lot from the folks in that group. I have also learned that I am not real great at doing Masculine cards. Gonna have to work on that a bit more to get it right. Here are some of the cards I made today.

The first one is a birthday card and I drew the humming bird on my computer and used my Pazzles to cut it and Microsoft Word for the title.

This one was a masculine card for a man who is dealing with a lot of stress due to his father being ill. As you can see - I really need to figure out a better way to do masculine cards.

And this one is for his father who is ill.

The one below is for someone who will be going through surgery soon. I used Lyrical Letters for the cuts on this one.

This one is to a soldier and I used a graphic that I computer drew and painted using Paint Shop Pro and Beyond Birthdays Cricut Cartridge. I am so thankful for all our soldiers do and hope it was reflected in this card.

Here is a closer view of the graphic.
