A few things I have been working on!

I have been doing lots of crafting lately and getting ready to launch another blog to sell my items on. My Cricut Explore is so easy to use and I love making things for people. I really haven't sold too many things, but I have friends who said I should, so I thought I might give it a go!  At least maybe I can fund some of my addiction with the extra money.  I lots of projects in the works, but thought I would share a few with you today.  I will be getting the blog completed soon and will post a link.  I am sharing some earrings and doll shirts with you today.  I sell hypoallergenic earrings  and measure 5/16th and the shirts fit the 18 inch dolls like the American Girls.  I made some for the local schools here and they have been a big hit.  My nieces and granddaughter loved them.  You can trace designs or use what you have in your cartridges and svg files.  I hope you like what I am sharing with you today!

We love the sports so cheer on your team dressed for the sport!

I love these doll and me shirts.  I just used a title in the cartridge library and my trusty heat press!
All my doll shirts come with matching headbands.

These blue sparkle earrings are perfect for the Frozen parties!

Layout Tuesday

Hello and been awhile since I posted. Got back from our trip to St. Louis and got really busy. I have been crafting, but tried to finish my last trip before I started the new one lol. Today I am sharing one layout from my Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg Trip. For this layout I used both the Cricut Explore and Silhouette Cameo.  The font I used for the title is from and is called Bolton Bold.  The iceberg is a png file I found and I turned it into a svg.  The wave is from Zoobaloo and the ship is from the Silhouette online store.  Because at this exhibit you could not take photos I purchased two post cards and included our tickets.  Your tickets were an actual person who was on the Titanic and gave some history about them.  You didn't know if you survived till you got to the Memory Room and my husbands passenger survived and I went down with the ship!  If you ever get to take the tour of this exhibit, it is well worth the $50 a ticket it cost.  I have been doing some other pages so I could get the last trip finished and also working on t-shirts and earrings.  I will share those later.  Have a super week!

Layout Tuesday and today is Wednesday? Well when I went to schedule my post Monday night, our cable internet was down and I fell asleep before it came back up. Has been happening a few times over the last couple weeks and when they had this happen before, someone hacked the server so hopefully that was not the case and the weather or they were working on it was the reason. Well anyway, better late than not at all!  Today I am sharing a layout using my Cricut Explore and svg files from Miss Kate Cuttables called Aquarium Fun.  I had several pictures from the Aquarium in Gatlinburg when we went 5 years ago!!!  Told you I was behind and I am going to try to get this trip scrapbooked!!  I am out of here for a week or so because hubby and I are planning a little trip for our anniversary and will be packing and getting the details together, so no crafting time.  See you when I return and then I will have more pictures to scrap!!!

Saturday Review

Hello and welcome to another share. Today instead of reviewing a cartridge, I have made a couple of the Make It Now projects to share. With Cricut having issues with Design Space recently, Cricut gave us two weeks free use of the subscription. I currently take the subscription which I highly recommend. Some of you might think I just use svg files, which I use both, but I also own over 300 of my own cartridges too.  I like the subscription for the ones I don't currently own and it is good to be able to try out the new ones before I decide whether I want to add them to my collection.  Today I am sharing a card and a scrapbook page.  The only thing I wish is that they told what cartridges were used in the description.  I might have missed where they put that info, but it was not in the description.  I know that I currently own the cartridges for both projects.  I think the card is probably a Anna Griffin and I know the layout is from Disney. 
I really loved how simple this card was to create in the Cricut Explore and it cuts the details so perfectly.  I plan on adding a little tag and sentiment and turn this into a birthday card for my mother in law.  I actually only used scraps for this card.  Good way to use those up!
This layout used the print then cut feature.  I love using it for those Disney characters because they are so darn hard to put the eyes and get them without losing pieces lol.  I had some pictures from Disney on Ice that I took my oldest granddaughter Mary-Kate to see.  Thanks for joining me today and will see you for Layout Tuesday!

Thursday Project

Yesterday was another day of rain and storms. Tired of those dark and gloomy days and along with that, I have gotten my Spring cold. Woke up with sore throat and if it wasn't that I was coughing some too, I would think it was my crazy allergies. Well today I am sharing this cute page with you.  I used my Cricut Explore and svg files from Treasurebox Designs.  I totally love all their cute designs and I just received their faces stamps in the mail.  I love that I can stamp their eyes and mouths and can't wait to try the animals.  I used some scrap pattern paper in my stash and created this fun layout of my little granddaughters field day when they did the sack race.  I never thought I would find images, but I did!!!  Check out all the great svg files they have.  See you Saturday with another project!!

Saturday Fun

Happy Saturday! Been raining here for the last couple days and nothing but wet and gloomy which will totally explain the bad picture of my project today. Hoping Easter will be much better. Today I am sharing this layout I created using my Cricut Explore and svg files from Miss Kate Cuttables called Playground Set and Warning Kids at Play.  Some fun graphics that went perfectly with these pictures.  The pattern paper was some in my stash so not sure who made it.  I love popping with some stickles.  Be sure to join me on Tuesday for my Layout Tuesday project and have a wonderful Easter.

Thursday Project

Have you ever had a day when you plan exactly what you were going to do and then get totally sidetracked? Well that was me. I planned on sharing a couple projects, but got busy and never got the others completely finished, so they will be shared later. Today I do have a birthday card to share. My oldest granddaughter Mary-Kate turns 12 on Saturday.  She is at the point now where she wants money, but I like making her a few little things.  She loves when I make cards for her and this will be her birthday card or one of them.  I have a few little goodies I am making for her with my heat press.  This card was made with my Cricut Explore and svg files from SVG Cuts.  This is from their collection called Ice Cream Birthday.  This set has some of the cutest projects in it and this card was so easy.  I used scraps to create this entire card.  Nice way to use those up!  See you later with another share.
