Just Buggin' Challenge # 28

Make something green for St. Patrick's Day!
Cartridge: Accent Essentials

Our Challenge this week was to go Green! Make something Green for St. Patrick's Day! I started looking through my Cricut cartridges, and remembered that I made a layout for my 2010 year event album. I using the Accent Essentials for the flowers. I just love how these came out.

I always make an event album for every year. Most years I scrap everything that happens in the year. But my albums get to big and start to fall apart. So I have to make part 1 and then part 2. This year I am only doing a two page layout for each month. This is my March layout for 2010. Loving how the greens come together. The theme for the album is to use black in every layout using other colors.

Tell me what you think.

Scrapbooking the night away

Hello everyone
I have been working hard this weekend.
I got in last weekend my Tinker Bell Cartridge. Just in time to make three sample invites for a friend. Her little girl will be turning 3 yrs. old in October of this year and I will be the sponsor for the invites. In the Hispanic Community it is tradition to have a big three year old party for the little girls. Almost like a quinceanera.
So here is what I came up with tell me what you think.

I first did this one. Going with her theme of Tinker Bell. I came up with this card. Layering Tinker to make her come out the best, adding scallops for color, and using the sizzix for the words.

I then made this one. After I saw a cut lay out and loved how the butterflies looked. Using the Paper Doll Cartridge for the butterflies, Martha Stewart for the punches and again the Sizzix for the words. I love this one the most of all.

And last and not lest I made this one using the Tinker Bell Cartridge, Martha Stewart punches and the Sizzix. Adding ribbon and some stitching. I think made the card look cute.

All in all I do think that all the cards came out cute and sweet for a little.

Just Buggin' Challenge #27

This weeks challenge is to use the Card Feature from a cartridge. Cartridge: New Arrival

First I have to say Sorry to Just Buggin' it has been about two weeks that I have done a Just Buggin' challenge. I had to much going on. But here it is my lovely card that I made.

When I saw the topic for the challenge I couldn't think about what card to make. But then it came to me. I should make a baby card I know that I will be needing one soon. Not for me but for a co-worker. See we think that there has to be some thing in the water at work. To many of my co-workers are have babies. That is why I just drink cokes.LOL

Also here is a cute tag that I made out of a plastic bag. And like I said I love birds and I am in that kick all about birds.

I love these chicks.

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment on my free give away for March.
