Finally... I had time to play! Here are a couple of new cards for ya...

I have a few new cartridges that I had not been able to put to use yet, so I decided to sit down this morning before work and make a couple of cards with them.

I thought this little Monster was kinda cute. You can find him on the B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge. The card shape is two shapes from Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge welded together. I also pull out my new Polka Dot Cuttlebug 5x7 embossing folder to use on his belly. I also have been itching to use my sewing machine, so I pulled that out too. Seeings that I have two girls making a little boy card was a little different for me.

My 10yo convinced me to buy Rock Princess. I really liked the phrases on there. I picked this one to make a little card for her- she is gone away for the week so I thought I would surprise her when she comes home. Again, I pulled out my sewing machine and did some stitching around the border, used lots of pop dots, and ran the little boy thru my Xyron sticker maker and used my fine white glitter on it.

And here is a close up of the layers, stitching, and glitter...

Mickey Mouse Birthday card and Disney Mini TP roll album

This card was made using Mickey Font for the Silhouette head and number 40 and the hat came from Celebrations. I had to whip up a quick card for my boss who loves Disney- it's his 40th birthday and we are surprising him with a little party today on lunch break.

The challenge for the Design Team at CRICUT MINI ALBUMS was to use recyled albums.
This little mini album was made using recycled tp rolls. I also made the tags using the cricut as well. All of the Disney shapes were made using Mickey Font and I used the Gypsy to hide the circle on the tag and substituted it with a little mickey head.

If you like mini albums head on over to see what a creative bunch of gals we have! :)
