Lots of goodies


Well I made 36 more of my scrap cards.  I won't bore you with every single picture.  Here is a sampling. 



























This little gem is for a sketch challenge over on Jitterbuggin challenge blog.  I saw it and immediately knew I needed to make this little guy.  I had done a larger version of him on a scrap page quite some time ago.  This was so much easier to do now that I have my Gypsy.  I placed all the pieces on the mat and added my scraps of paper and cut it all out at once.  This is another easel card which I thought fit this card perfect, I can't believe i waited so long to try these.  My nesties were used for the large scallop circle, the red and blue and Wausau cardstock and the white is American Crafts, brads and ribbon are from my stash.  I also decided to enter this card here .  I love the 4th of July and I love this color combo!!  In fact I love it so much that I needed to make another card with it since all the paper was still out.  I have been wanting to get the Independance Day cricut cartridge ever since it was released, but I really haven't had any spare money for it.  When I was gone last week demoing the Cricut at Costco, I stopped in a Walmart there and saw it for $19.  I almost got it, but talked myself out of it.  The images really are not my style, I just want it because of my love for the holiday.  The cut I like the most is the banner(I don't know what it's actually called, but the half circle decorative banner things).  Well while designing something else on my Gypsy I came across a similar cut on Old West.  I was so excited!!  I don't own this cart, but my niece does and she graciously allowed me to put it on my Gypsy since she has no intention of getting one, she hardly even uses her Cricut.  So this card was born.
I added some white gel pen stitching and some scallops from Plantin schoolbook and I think t is beautiful.  I designed it late last night and just could not wait to cut it out today, I am still so excited that I found this cut!
