Embellishing With Cricut Vinyl

I’ve been meaning to jazz up my outdoor flower pots so that they look a bit more welcoming.  I love using vinyl on outdoor things since it sticks so well and it a whole lot faster and easier then painting…plus, if I get sick of it I can always remove it.

Happy Birthday Cake Card


 I am so happy to be home. I was out-of-town for a week. I spent half my time in Chicago than rushed to Valley Forge. I did a video of the new product launches for fashion week at the show, but ended up with dial-up connections and could not post the video. So I will add it to this post. 

This week is paper and I have been in the mood to create cards. I created this cute cake card. I am going to be teaching Cricut Cake classes soon so I am gearing up for all things cake. I like this kind of cake it looks good with none of guilt. The wild card cartridge is one of my favorites and first I ever purchased. I have been a huge fan of all things Crafty Secrets for years and was on the DT last year. The vintage cuts make cards look so timeless. 


 Here are the instructions for this fun Birthday Card. Happy Birthday Cake Card

Recipe Card: Pumpkin Muffins

It’s still summer, but for some reason I really feel like jumping into fall!

Here’s one of my favorite pumpkin muffin recipes that I finally got around to making a recipe card for.  Now all I have to do is laminate it with my Your Story and it will last for years.

Layered Fabric Flower Pin

I love making and wearing flower pins!  They really jazz up an outfit and can do double duty when you add them to a head band or  handbag.  Here’s one that I made by cutting out fabric on my Cricut and then sewing it so that it gave each layer a bit more texture and bulk.  I topped it off with a button I made with my i-top.

Quilling Metal for Jewelry

Quilling paper with the Cuttlebug Quilling kits is fun and easy so I thought I’d try other mediums…like metal!  I used a rather thin metal to die cut my flower pieces, I then embossing them in my Cuttlebug, and then used alcohol ink to color them.

I then put some pearls in the center and added it to a pendant that I had hung some beads and other doo-dads off of.
