Here are a couple of Bookmark Cards I made tonight.

I made a couple of Detached Bookmark Cards for the first time tonight. I learned how to do the actual card fold from Dawn at:
The card is cut at 4 1/4" x 11" it is scored at 4 1/2" and 8 5/8". The right hand side is made so you can tear it off and use it as a bookmark.
I cut the fairy and the Mom and bunny at 2 1/2" . The girl with the basket is cut at 3 1/2" and the girl with the bird is cut at 3". All the cuts are from the cricut cart: A Childs Year. This is the first time I've used this cart. and I love it. Click on the pictures to make them larger, Let me know what you think (I love receiving comments.

I Finally Finished My 1st Mini Album

We're having a family reunion in July, I thought I would try making a mini album with my bind-it-all I got for Christmas. This is my mom's family her sister and brothers. I added the names of all their kids and grandkids and their birthdays to each page. I'm going to give it as the door prize at the reunion.
I used Graphic-45 papers for most of the album. The front and back cover are from another stack.(I'm not sure the name of it.)
I used cereal boxes and cut them 6" x 6". I tried to give most everything a vintage feel, Inking the edges of all the paper. The only cricut cuts are the scalloped circles and on the last page, I cut MEMORIES. CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO MAKE IT LARGER.
I'm not sure about the ribbon and fiber. Also I don't know how I should decorate the cover, should I add flowers? Let me know what you think, I love comments! Shari

Papertrey Ink Challenge

This is day 13 in the celebration for Papertrey Ink. I decided to create something for today's challenge. The challenge was to design a floral project and an embellishment sheet to go along with it, so the recipient can have some fun embellishments to create there own project.
I crocheted some cute little flowers and made a card with one. They are so fun and quick to whip up (thanks grandma for teaching me to crochet when I was little).

I made my first pop-up cards tonight!

Check out the pop-up cards I made tonight! I learned how to make these yesterday on Lorraine's blog. You have to check out her video on how to make one of these cute cards. Her blog is great, check it out:
Thanks Lorraine!
I cut these cards at 4"x11" and scored at 1"- 2 5/8"- 3 5/8"- 5 1/2" flipped and
scored the other side in the same incriminates. You need to cut a slit at the 5" point. The part that pops up is cut at 3" x 5" and matted twice. I used my cuttlebug to add some interest on the front with coordination's paper then sanded it.
Folded, these cards will fit in a A2 envelope. They really aren't that difficult but her video is very helpful.
