Crazy 4 Challenges- C4C39

Good morning everyone.  Here's a project I submitted for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  The challenge was to make a tent card following the instructions on the Just Magnolia Blog.  I have to say I had an awesome time making a tent card.  I've never done one before.  As you can see I incorporated my Quilling in the project.  I cut the card from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cart.  I used my Gypsy and the new Hide Feature to hide the design on the window card.  Then I just put a square on the card so that when it cuts there is a simple square.  I also cut the frame from the same cart.  The Quilling was made with 3/8" wide quilling paper from Quilled Creations. the cardstock I used was So Saffron from Stampin Up and the designed paper from Lasting Impressions.  Thanks for stopping by!

Back from Vacation!!

Hello everyone! I am really sorry for not posting anything in the last week but I was on vacation with my family and did not have access to the Internet.  We went to San Diego CA.  We had such a great time there.  We visited Disney, Sea World, Lego Land, Old Town, we went on a Dinner Cruise, S. Diego Zoo, just to name a few places.  I actually had so many ideas for projects and hope to share them with you soon.  Have a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend.  See you soon.

Jungle Animals

Hello Everyone!  Today I am going to share with you a framed Quilling piece I made for my friend's baby shower, actually this would be the 2nd one I make for the same occassion.  The leaves and trees were cut from the Zoobaloo Cricut Cart.  the animals are made using 1/8 in.  Quilling strips and the shadowbox frame is from Martha Stewart.  As you can see I love to cut with the Cricut and embellish my cutouts with Quilling.  I am fairly new at blogging but my friends have already asked me to film videos showing how I do Quilling.  It really sounds like a great idea and hopefully will attempt to post one soon.  Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have and please comments are always welcome.  Enjoy!
