SOTM bloghop - Sept

Welcome to sept's sotm blog hop. You should be coming from Michelle Loncar's blog. Next in the hop is Elizabeth Mindemann's blog. But scroll down below to check out my artwork.This is the images from this months sotm. I know I'm gonna use this alot for my moms wedding, and maybe even mine. But for now, I was stumped. But I do love the tag.

I made bags for my customers as thank you cards and place a petite perk in it.
I used typeset for the bag, with our awesome cricut cart. Then i cut out the tag again with the cricut. I love this cartridge. The tag was cut using sunset, that i sanded to mute the color slightly. Thanks is from A Little Thanks. My customer loved it.

Sorry to make this short, but I'm getting ready to go on my 2nd anniversary. We're going to Vegas. WOOOO. We didn't get to celebrate our 1st anniversary since i was back home in Michigan and Matt was still here at Fort Irwin. Luckly our anniversary falls on a holiday weekend so we should get every one free until he deploys.

Thanks for checking out my artwork, again next in the hop is Elizabeth Mindemann's blog.

spotlight blog hop - circle cards

Welcome to August spotlight blog hop. This month we are featuring circle cards. You should be coming from Tamytha's blog. Next is Jena's Blog.

Now I made all my cards with the new cricut cart so making the bases were super easy.
The card below was made with all scraps. Even the base was in my scrap bin. The ribbon was an accident. It somehow ended on the table and jest went well with the card.

This card i made for my aunt and grampa. they bought me some cricut carts. Even this card was scraps from the pair-a-phrase card. Its hard to see, but the sentiment say thanks a bunch from a little thanks.

On this card, i only used stickers from typeset complements. this was so quick and easy.

Ill come back with the deet later. I am going to a bday party.

Next in your hop is Jena's Blog.

No B&T birthday card

I went to a team meeting last sat of july. I was adopted to jen rubio's team because my upline is her sideline. so jen is my aunt in the crafting world. lol. Jen is now hosting a swap for her team members. This months rule was no B&T, use current Alpha stamps and have at least 3 shades of cardstock. We couldn't use B&T, but we could make our own, and that is what i did.

I used a lot of new products on this card. :) I took our new kraft 6x6 card and trimmed the scalloped edge off of it so i could use it further down on the card. And I stamped, Alot. I used 5 different Alpha stamps for my homemade B&T. I used headline alphabet twice, one with a kissing tech with the script stamp for universal backgrounds. The small circle alpha is new from the stamp set Vintage Type. the banners are from that too. I just cut them down so they were smaller. Also used our new cork alphabets, ribbon from the red collection and diecuts from the cricut collection. My three plus colors were kraft, Chocolate, Cranberry and Colonial White. I also used cocoa and Vanilla cream ink. I forgot to mention, I punched a cirlce and backed it on my button the give it some color.

While at the team meeting we made this card with the new Roxie collection, Love Life stamp set, Aug sotm Wicked, Bling buttons and Butterfly just blooms.
