I think I am all caught up now!

Ok I think I am now all caught up with my creations now! I have them all photographed and posted. Now I get to go and work on some more projects!!!
I hope to get back sooner then did last month! I just have been sick and got all caught up in some stuff on the Cricut Website. But Iam over all that and now I hope to get back to my crafting! Until next time.....

Birthday Tag


I made this Birthday tag for CricutJenn's "6 months of tags SWAP". The theme for October is Birthday. I did the corners using my new tag corner punch from Stampin Up. I never could get my edges straight so that punch is PERFECT!! The sentiment reads "Happy Birthday How Many finger are you?". It originally also said "Shane O'Donnell age 4" on it but I had to cut that off to fit it onto the tag. Tht stamp is by Ikadinkadoo. I used a flower stamp that I had been RAKd from the Cricut Website. It is by StampCraft.

Card using my Card Candies


I made this card using the card candies I made for my Kids Related SWAP. The theme was "Hang In There". I used the Chintango monkey stamp, and a "hang in there" stamp in the Chintango goup. I ran the background through my CuttleBug machine, and then inked it using a Brilliance Stamp pad.

Fall Card Candies



I made these Card Candies for my Monthly Card Candy SWAP. I love how these are so simple, yet are so fancy as well. The Cornicopia is by Inkadinkadoo. I stamped it, then ran it right side down through my Xyron machine. Then I sprinkled it with fine glitter that I had gotten at Michael's. I also tried using the Extra fine glitter, but they didn't sparkle quite as much! I included two sentiments so they reciever could choose which they wanted. The sentiments are by HeroArts and come as a set of 6.

Halloween Recipe SWAP



These two Layouts I did for LKRhodes's Halloween Recipe LO SWAP on Cricut.com. The
6x6 is for "Black Bat Punch". a I used the bat stick and bat Stubby from StampsByJudith.com. The larger bat is done using Scrapbook paint and a foam stamp by Making Memories. The 8X8 is for "Hot Witches Brew". I used a new die cut from Sizzix for the Witches apparel.

"Add a Sentiment" Cards



I made these cards for the two groups in Bre's "Add a Sentiment" SWAP on Cricut.com
They are using an older set from Stampin Up that I got as a Hostess Set many moons ago! The hearts in the background of the girl card is a stubby by StampsByJudith.com The blue patterned paper is from a pack of paper I had from "Scrapbook Wizard's Scrapbook Pack Mini #1."

Monkey ATC


These cute little Chintango monkeys were perfetct for a SWAP I joined on SplitCoastStampers hosted by 2goofy. I needed to have a mokkey and at least one embelishment.

Even more "You Choose ATCs"!!




Here are more ATC for the You Choose ATC SWAP that I hosted on Cricut.com.

The themes for these were "girly" and "Love"

Christmas Tags


I made these for CricutJenn's Christmas Tag SWAP on Cricut.com. I used an older Stampin Up set called "Tags for All". I cut the tags using my Fiskars circle cutter (which I still can't seem to figure out!) The background stamps (the polka dots) is by All Night Media.

I love how they turned out!

Card from a Sketch



I did these cards for a SWAP on Cardmaker.com the SWAP was held by Lora. I used my Scallop punch from Stampin Up, and the paper is from the Butterflies and Blossoms Mat Stack from DCWV. Someone from Cricut was sweet enough to RAK the stack to me. (Unfortunatly I can't remember who it is so if you read this and it was you, let me know so I can edit it!!!!)

White with Wire theme



I made these two cards for CardJunkie from Cricut's white with wire theme. I have had this heart stamp...forever!!!! Since my teen years! It was nice to pull it out to use again! I used the wild wire peg board that I bought centuries ago to make the wire shapes. I used two different color wire, red 18 gauge, and tinned copper at 24 gauge. I had all that stuff from way back too! I also used white brads for the red wire, and silver ones for the tinned wire. I did the background with my D'Vine swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug! (that is newer!!)

13 days of Halloween Layout SWAP



I signed up for this one with MrsSuzan on Cricut. I must say I had fun with these, and I can not wait until the LOs come back to see all the other great work!
I signed up to do 6 candy Corn and 3 Friendly ghosts. I used the Cricut to cut out the 3 friendly ghosts. I used the negatives for the "Friendly Ghosts". The ghosts are cut using my Sizzix die cuts. Hey and look there is that "Whimsy" jumbo roller stamp again from Stampin Up! Did I mention I love that one??
I used some of the Hundreds of sheets of Alphabet stickers for the "candy corn". The candy corn was all cut by hand. I had to have David look up the color order of the Candy corn. I can never remember the order of the colors! I don't like candy corn, so I never really studied them!

Thanks for looking!

Kids rellated SWAP



I made these cards for a Kids related SWAP that I am hosting on Cricut.com. They were to be thnking of you cards. I used the Brilliance stamp pads (which I love!)

I edged it with the new Stampin Up Scallop border punch.

I know it is not real interesting, but at the moment best I can do!

I know I have been MIA! Sorry!

I have so many things to update here....but I can't do it right now! My virus protection is running and I can't get the camera to upload right now! UGH!

Let me go see if therei anything I already uploaded that I can post so that I don't get poked with Kelly's stick!!!
