I have been having so much fun with the Create A Critter cartridge I can't seem to put it down!!! On this one I decided to try using perfect pearls on a cuddlebug embossed piece of paper!!! I also used a new punch ( well new to me anyway) of Martha Stewart's. I used pattern paper to make Peppi stand out more!!! The little flowers are left over cuts from something else I cut out a long time ago.
Now I thought I would throw in the little Piggy card I did up also!!!
I made her using up scraps!!!! This card is delightful to use!!!!!

I have been following Marion from a piece of crafts on ustream live on Tuesdays and Thursday's with Prima Marketing. She broadcast live and gives so many tips and techniques to use in paper-craft!!! Last tuesday she made a small mini book. I made mine about an inch larger since I still am not comfortable with small. I used my distress inks and made my own glitter mist in the colors I needed and stamped and used distress stickles. Like utube it is easier to follow when I see for myself a different technique or direction to make something. Just thought I would share this. I know this is different from my regular cutesy designs but I love this look also!!! great way to use up scraps don't you think.

I skipped the second sketch till planning a masculine card but I don't have my mind wrapped around it yet. I wanted to use the same paper as the first sketch trying to keep scraps down to a low roar.(fat chance I know). And a masculine card wouldn't be in this paper. The only cricut on this is the scalloped frame I used from Lyrical Letter font cartridge. Thanks for Looking... What do you think???

Took some pictures of my grand-kids this week that I thought I had better get them into a layout while the design was rambling around in my head!! This is the newest addition to our crew!!! First grandson!!! He is such a happy little guy and smiling most of the time. A photographers dream!!! A grandmothers treasure!!!! I have lots more to do but this is why I originally bought my cricut and have gotten away from scrap booking and took up making cards!!! I have tons of photo's that need done and should be doing a few each week so I don't forget when and what happened when I took the pictures!! I have a great printer that does store bought printing quality so I have no excuses except procrastination!!! Still have the journaling to do but I can move on to a few more!!
