About Me

I received a Cricut for Valentine's day 2008. I had done scrapbooking when my daughter was younger, but hadn't done any paper crafting since then. I really got into it again when I got my Cricut!! I discovered card making and have been hooked ever since!! I enjoy almost all crafts and have done tole painting, crocheting, cross stitch and other crafty things. I have a daughter who is a freshman in college and two furbabies. I adore animals of all kinds and I love the outdoors and gardening.

Girls camp picture cubes

Some 4" wooden cubes that I embellished with paper, flowers, rub-ons and other things. I am what they call a "Nestie" for a church girls camp and I made a cube for each girl in my group. They have a picture of Christ, someone that the girl loves (family member(s)) and a scripture about love on them. I also cut each girl's initials using my cricut. Most of the fonts for the letters were cut with the SCAL softwear. I also used my cuttlebug to emboss some the the paper. I sanded and spray painted each block with black paint before I embellished them. When I was done I covered them with Modge Podge.

Here was the scripture for that day. I used rub-ons and rhinestones to accent the scripture. It was printed out on Kraft paper and I inked the edges.

And another view

The blocks all had pictures of Christ to remind the girls of his infinite love for them.

Another view

The "LOVE" was cut with cricut using the Home Decor cartridge. I used my deep cut blade and cut it out of chipboard. The butterfly on the heart is a rub-on. It wasn't as vibrant as I was hoping for on the black.

Initial on Block

An example of the initials that I did. This one is accented with stitching, pearls and a little butterfly brad.
