Feelin' Fruity?

Hello crafty friends. Here is a strawberry shaped card I just put together. I cut the card at the Silhouette Store, Strawberry Shaped Card, on my Cameo. Some of the seeds were deleted from the cut file so I could place this adorable face from Peachy Keen, PK-146. The flowers are from a punch from Martha Stewart. A "fruity" card for sure-
Sentiment - PK-164

I Love TV

There is a new font cartridge from Cricut called Extreme Font. Cricut will let you sample the cartridge in the Craft Room until February 6. Cricut is hosting a contest for the new cartridge that you don't want to miss. One of the categories for the contest is "family room".  Since I have a few TV remotes, I thought this box would be fun to store them in. The side was decorated with Extreme Font which cut very nicely on my machine.  The TV and heart are from Groovy Times.

Hello! There is a tag challenge going on over at Fun "n Flair Stamps.  After looking at the beautiful samples, I just knew I wanted to make a tag featuring the sweet mouse from the Miss Shayla at Christmas Time.  The tag was cut with my Cricut from the Sentimentals cartridge at 5 inches. The swiss cheese wedge is from Create a Critter and is cut at 2.75 inch.
The sentiment is from the Miss Shayla at Christmas  Time.
I just used a post it note so the  "Christmas" could
be masked off.
Miss Mouse is so sweet! I hope you can pop over to the Fun 'n Flair Stamps' blog and join the fun!

Skate Party Favors

My gal just had a birthday party this weekend. She is so cute and loves to help plan parties now. Since she was having a skate party and really into penguins right now, this sweet skatin' penguin from Peachy Keen Stamps seemed to fit. I even found a cupcake birthday cake in the shape of a penguin. When we went to the bakery, my daughter fell in love with a certain yellow cartoon sponge! So penguins and Spongebob it was! 
The favor bags are from Recollections with a tag cut from the Silhouette Store, #34961, 6 bracket labels with shadow by Lori Whitlock. A hole was punched through the bag and tag so ribbon could thread through.
The penguins were cut with on  my Cameo
using PK-SVG 147 Skatin By. (the cut files
support many popular die cut machines)

Thanks a Melon!

Hope you all have been enjoying your weekend. I just had to make a quick post to share one of of the New stamps from Peachy Keen. (because Peachy Keen Stamps is having a sale and 99 cent shipping) I cut a melon from the Preserves Cricut cartridge and placed the melon on a card base from Wild Card.  The melon's leaves are perfect for this sentiment stamp.

There is a great card sketch over at The Greeting Farm's Blog that was used to make this card. Be sure to check out the adorable cards the design team whipped up. The gal on this card is Bright Bean and I colored her to match the pink and blue pattern paper.

Valentine Frame Banner

Hello! This week the Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge is to make a project with a tag.  The banner cuts are from Create A Critter 2 and they are on a tag from A Child's year.  I cut an animal with a coordinating "Valentine" phrase and used my Peachy Keen Stamps for their sweet faces. The tags hang on tulle that is tied to the frame.

Get Well Soon!

What perfect timing for these New stamps from Peachy Keen! My dad is doing some "getting well" as he is just recovering from an eye surgery.  My dad purchased my favorite childhood toy, a Stieff Teddy Bear (which is completely void of any fur today). I think my dear dad will get a smile on his face when he receives this card from me.

I will be entering this card in Peachy Keen Stamps' Anything Goes Challenge... If you have some Peachy Keen stamps play along! Be sure to link your project by January 9th.

Lassie Card

Happy Birthday Timmy Mark! My brother just celebrated a birthday and I always like to make him a card.  They just added a new collie dog to their family named Heidi. He adopted her from a rescue and she is very well behaved. My brother likes to razz me about my "not so well behaved" dog.  The collie was cut from Pet Shop Cricut Lite.  The sentiment is from PKSC-12.

PKS January Sneak Peek!

Happy New Year!!  I have a two projects to share today that I have made with the NEW Peachy Keen Stamps Club set for January 2013. This is an adorable set with sweet teddy bears, sentiments, Valentine's Day fun, faces and more!

For my first project- I made these mail boxes for my gals. This is a one sheet paper cut available at the Silhouette Store, 3D Mail Box #7503 .  The mail box was easy and fun to decorate with PKSC-13. You could decorate some pre-made mail boxes too.
