Owls are my favorite bird and the hearts have x's and o's all over. I don't know if you can see but the square's are embossed with tiny hearts embossing folder and the square's are 2 1/2"x 2 1/2".

For the inside I stamped the little owl and an outer circle of x's and o's.

Use it Tuesday challenge #48: Warm It Up!

I used Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge because in this challenge you use your scraps or things you've had for a while. I've had this cartridge for months and have only used it for paper dolls for my daughter to play with, so I thought it would make a cute summer card. I also used some paper I've had for a while too. I used green tulle for a net which even though I forgot to add before I put my card base down, I think it turned out cuter. I used all three colors: Red, Orange, and Yellow. Head on over to to see all the fun projects and play along!
I took the same paper I used for the paper dolls skin and took a dark brown ink over it to give it a sandy look. I also just ripped the paper a bit for some texture.

This is the inside of my card. I use a strip of the base background and some green so it would stand out.

"A Banner Year" cricut cardz challenge #123

I have to say at first I wasn't thrilled about using a banner but I saw so much talent and it inspired me to create what I think is an amazing card! I will  be using more banners in the future! They are fun and really versatile! Head on over to for a fun challenge!
I used Straight From The Nest for the banner cut @ 1.25" (pg 65) and used diamond stickles and used foam tape. I cut the letters on the banner @1/2" from the Sophisticated cartridge. I cut the curling iron @ 4" on pg 9 from the Girls Makeup Party cartridge and popped it up on foam tape. I cut the shape behind the curling iron from Elegant Edges @ 3.5" on pg 25. I also used 3 white buttons from favorite findings, light pink and white bakers twine and a Quatre Foil embossing folder(Hobby Lobby).

Out of the Box challenge at Scrappy Moms

I had a lot of fun creating this Valentines box. I was going to use my Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge but I couldn't get the score lines to match up on my E2, so instead I used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge. I'm glad I used this cartridge because I think it turned out great! Head on over to for a fun challenge!
I heat embossed the top of my box with Scrappy Moms and My pink Stamper stamp sets. I also added wired ribbon and made a bow and added some red gems.
For the front of my box I added the heart from Create a Critter 2 and stamped the True Love sentiment also from Scrappy Moms stamps.

For the sides I used the Elegant Edges cartridge and used My Pink Stamper stamps.
And for the back of my box I cut a couple of birds out of some pattern paper I've had for a long time. I used a scalloped punch and stamped on it with Scrappy Moms stamps.
