The outside of the card ...The inside of the card... I just love how this card turned out, all the cutouts are from the "Stamping" cartridge and then flowers are from the piece of paper I have wanting to do something with for a LONG time!

This is a thank you card using the card kit I got in the mail, I love the stripes and think I'll do a few birthday cards in these colors for all the boy birthdays!!
The butterflies and the "love you" both came off the "Stamping" cartridge I just on in the mail (for free with my cricut rewards points!) I'm still working on it but love the way this turned out.
I got the idea for this card from the last "Card Maker Magazine" they used a real coke can, but I thought I would cut myself and then whoever was opening the card would cut themselves also. I just know that kind of people ;) So I made the flowers from an 12 pack coke box and added the "Hello" from the Stamping cartridge. My sister on a mission loves coke and I'm going to send her this card this week!

I made 13 of these cute volley ball tags for a volley ball team! The volleyballs are 4 inches and the girls are 3 1/2 inches, when they were finished they each had their number on the jersey and their name on the back. They were then laminated and had a hole punched in them so they could have a key chain attached and they would be able to put them on their gym bags. I didn't get a picture of the whole finished project for some reason (so you'll have to trust me there were 13!).

I used the glass etching cream that came with my new cricut to make some vases for Mother's Day. I did two of the taller square size and one small vase. The "mom" cutout is from "Beyond Birthday's" and everything else is from "Straight from the Nest".
I was surprised how easy the glass etching was! I can't wait to do some more, I just have to figure out what I would use it for, hmmm.

These are the three Alison did using the "Paper Pups" cartridge, I was surprised how many cute things there were! I can't wait for her to come back and make some more cards with it!
My friend Alison came by again and we got another seven cards done for her work project! I think that's almost half way done for the year. I only did four of these cards, but the other three were so cute I wanted to post them (but not take credit for them!).
The three bird cards were done using the "Straight from the Nest" cartridge, my new favorite! And the card with the present was using a new cartridge (can't remember the name) that I don't love, but I was determined to use it for something!

(I don't know why this keeps uploading sideways)
The first page is for my sisters book (5 pages done, I'm hoping to have about 18 done before she gets home) She has been sending a lot of photos with other missionaries so I thought this would be cute. The tree, sentiment and the birds are from "Straight from the Nest".
The other two pages are from Thanksgiving in 2008! We went to a park by my in-laws house and then (of all things) broke a pinata, very fun! "Happy Thanksgiving" was from the 'Wild Card' cartridge, the leaves and acorns are from "Doodlecharms".
I'm really hoping to get one more page for Kellie's book done today, but also need to do a card for my niece (since she was pretty bummed at dinner tonight).
