Update

Just an update, so far so good, still have a few quirks here and there, I'm sure I'll figure them out eventually. Hopefully within this month, I will be all set up!!!

Baby Shower Banner

 
I made this banner for Barbie's (my sister) baby shower, after, she used it as decor for the babies room. Welcome "Candice Idalina"!!!
I used my Cricut Expression, Cuttlebug, George and Basic Shapes and Straight From the Nest Cricut Cartridges.

The "BOYS" Mini Album


Mini albums I made for my boys, Nick and Drew. A little something to capture their thrill for airsoft. The "BOYS" mini album was purchased at Michaels. The papers I used are from, Hot of the Press "Time for Fun" paper pack, for the other album I used papers from Simple Stories "Awesome" paper pack/elements. I used many embellishments from all over: From AC Moore to Hobby Lobby to many online scrapbooking stores. What can I say, I love to shop, lol!

Wedding Invitation




 
Here's the Wedding Invitation I made for my niece's wedding in November and what a wedding it was, beautiful and entertaining. This invitation was actually quite simple, the hard part was the mass production. Both me and my sister Linda and her daughter "the bride to be" Natasha were up to 4:30 am, lots of nights, trying to get these done. It was a long process, but definitely worth it.
 Congrats to "James and Natasha".

I made these for my sister's Christmas Eve Party. I'm not one to bake, but I made everything from scratch and had alot of fun doing it. Alot of these papers came from one of Martha Stewarts paper packs that I bought at AC Moore and I used the Cricut Expression and the Cupcake Wrappers Cartridge.
